Sounds like the optical pickup is faulty in your DVD player, have you tried the DVD in another unit?

If your DVD's came from overseas or is a copy, they may not play in the player. I have the same problem with playing certain DVD's in my Linux computer. Although they will play in my oldest DVD player. It is due to the copyright protection software that is encoded on the DVD,

The tv works but the dvds wont play. The symbol showing the disk is trying to read appears and stays on screen but nothing ever happens. When I try to eject the disc it won't. I have to turn it off and on...


my dvd player doesn't play all types of discs, especially homemade like ones ripped from a home computer. However, i do not play many dvds, yet i have replaced the players many times. I dont think that most dvd players are built to last. Sounds like you have 1 built-in (to tv). The players are cheap now-- your better off saving the headache and replacing it- The last one i bought was $30.00 on sale-get a cheap 1 cause i think they all have a short lifespan.

DVDs Wont play


Check the specs on your dvd player. Not all players will read dvd-r discs. Some players will only read commercially produced dvds. Hope this helps & please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks.

I have recorded all my vhs tapes to dvds and they have played before and now they wont play. i have checked 4 dvds and they wont read in my tv, or 2 of my computers. what could of happened?


It can be several things. What type of DVD's do you have and how old are your players. Most older DVD players won't play the DVD+R format. When you said they played before was that in the recorder you used to make them? If so then most likely you failed to fina'ize them in the DVD recorder you used to make them. If you don't do that, they will ONLY play in the DVD recorder you used to copy them. If you did finalize them, it may be that, as said before, cheap discs dont work in any machines and DVD+R wont work in older players.
