Re: dvds wont play

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

I have a Toshiba DVD Video Player Model SD 260. I

Hello, The problem could be dirt on the surface of the lens, you can clean this by removing the cover of the dvd player . Gently use a dry cotton bud to clean the lens because the lens is fragile. Insert the disc plate into the dvd player and press play, if it does not play try the second method. Ensure the cover of the player is open, connect the power plug to the mains socket and observe the lens if it beam a red light, Also check the ribbon cable use to connect the lens to the printed circuit board, then gently clean the lens with a dry cotton bud , insert the disc plate and press play to see if it play. If it does not play the disc, then this require a change of the lens

I have a panasonic dvd recorder DMR EH50 and I know this makes me a really techno "dummy" but I can't understand how you connect the player to the tv to make it record. I've got it so I can play...

My dear friend you need to connect the signal source direct to the dvd and then to the tv.If you got cable you need to connect it to the input of the dvd and then connect the output of the dvd to the tv set.
And when you go to record put the channel on the dvd

Dvd player will not play or eject the disc.The tv is a 37" with a built in dvd player

Well, I will look into more about this. But, from my experience, any TV that has a build in DVD, VHS, it going to be a problem either now or sometime in the near future. They share the same motherboard inside the TV; when one thing goes wrong on the board it effects everything else as well. Let me ask you this, Is the TV working ok? If it is then the problem could just be in the laser eye within the DVD player itself. If this is the problem, then you can usually just replace the parts within the DVD player, and they might solve your problem.

My trutech tv has a built in dvd player and it isnt playing dvds any mor.

clean the lens of your dvd player that might solve your problem. if not then have a tech take a look at it, as the problem can be more technical than user friendly.or purchase a new dvd player if it will cost too much to repair.

good luck

Can't make it work

If the DVD doesn't recognise a DVD disc, then if can only be one of the following:
1. Not a compatible disc... Try a store bought disc.
2. Defective disc... same as above.
3. DVD player is defective and needs repaired or cleaned.

When a DVD player says "No Disc" it also means " Can't read Disc".

Hope that helps,
