DVD player not working

We were watching DVDs on my TruTech TV with built in DVD player and I opened it to switch discs. When I closed it again (with the disc in it) the player said it was loading the disc, but the disc was not spinning and never started to spin! HELP

Re: DVD player not working

It could be that the DVD player has a bad home switch in the dvd player or that it doesn't know that the door is closed. I have run into similar situations with CD Players years ago. Also keep in mind to unplug unit and let sit for 1 minute to let microprocessor reset. Let me know if that helps. Thank you ...Jay

I cant watch any dvds on my dvd player as their is a parental lock on there, i have tried unlocking it but i need a code which i dont have, the model is a sony RMT-D175P

OK - to switch off the parental control on the Sony DVP-NS15 and reset the password, please do the following:

1. Switch on the TV and the DVD player
2. Set the TV to the correct input for the DVD player so you can see the on-screen menu
3. Remove any disc from the player and close the disc drawer
4. Press the DISPLAY key on the Sony remote control to open the on-screen menu
5. Use the DOWN arrow to highlight the disc and padlock (parental control) then press ENTER
6. Use the DOWN arrow to highlight ON> then press ENTER

You will be asked to enter a password. Press 1 9 9 7 0 3 then press ENTER. Don't worry that it's only asking for four numbers, you need to enter all six. After you enter the master password, you will be asked to set a new password. Set this to something easy to remember, e.g. 0000 then press ENTER and confirm the password.

Finally, if you don't want to use the parental control feature you need to switch it off. If asked for the password again, enter the new password you set.

7. Use the arrow keys to highlight OFF> and press ENTER
8. Press the UP arrow to highlight PLAYER> and press ENTER
9. Highlight LEVEL and use the arrow keys to set this to OFF
10. Press the DISPLAY key again to close the menu

If you have any difficulty unlocking the player, please let me know.

Dvd wont work/spin

You can hook up an external dvd player with the rca cables, just switch input to "a/v" to watch dvd player. ours stopped working too. the motor that spins the dvd's just gives out and starts slipping, the laser cannot read the disc unless it spins fast enough.

Sounds like a common problem with this trutech brand. There are some possibilities. 1. Laser could be worn out, 2 it could be a bad cable coming from the laser. 3 The home switch for the laser to come all the way back to its "HOME" position could be bad. But usually if this is the case, the disc won't spin at all. And 4th, the spindle motor that spins the disc could be worn out. Causing the disc not to spin fast enough and thus causing an error. Let me know if you want to send me one of these anyone so as i can trouble shoot the problem further. Keep me posted and i hope this helps you out some. Thank you Jay
