Re: venturer tv/dvd

With the tray out physically move little laser reader head to the right. Unplug the unit. and plug back in with the tray out. This will reset the head. Try a few times moving gently. It worked for me.

Tv -dvd combo tv plays fine dvd wont spin or play just says loading

Its Sled motor have damaged. Sled motor is one which spins the disc inside it after loading. it is a high speed stepper motor. It can be replaced. To replace it you have to open your combo and take out its disc mechanism out. You have to disassemble it to take the sled motor out and shoud refit it. If you haven't sufficent experience in this work; never try to do this. Get it repaired by any experience service person. If you have experience, you can do it by yoursef at home. OK

DVD don't load

Is LG a piece of what?

First off let me try to figure out your vocabulary..
The answer is No there not a piece of *****

What happends over time here is the little band inside slips causing the try to open and shut and so on, will take sooe rk to fix. Being that it is a combo unit a repair bill would not be in the budget. But if you put in a disc and it ejects it before it starts to even try to read then you got a stuck HAT, the HAT is the piece that helps the motor spin the disk. The unit will need to be opened to see what is wroung inside.

Thanks and do be considerate and leave a postive rating and feedback.

Sylvania MTS/SAP tv/vcr/dvd combo turning itself off

could be that either the dvd or the vcr are malfunctioning, usually it is the vcr that creates the problem. If you turn tv on and set vol to low see if you can hear the noise of the motor loading or trying to load,with out a tape inside. It may be a good idea to have a qualified tech repair it, these units are difficult to work on and further problems may come up if you are not familiar with the tv.

Panasonic PV-20DF64 20 inch TV/DVD Combo TV can not read disc

If the disc loads up and you can hear it spin, then you get the error, more than likely the optical lens has been damaged. This will have to be repaired by a local shop if its worth the cost. if the part is available it would probably run anywhere from 130-165 to repair

Good Luck!

My poloroid tv with dvd player dvd player put dvd in makes noise

This is a very common problem with the 32" TDA-03211C TV/DVD combo unit. Poloroid sent me three replacement DVD units in the first year and each began doing this same thing after a few months (chunking noise and could not load disks). Finally my warranty expired and it failed again. I ended up with two units left after all those exchanges, so I took one apart to see if I could figure out what was going wrong.
In switching the units out one day, I noticed that the forward facing side of the DVD box was getting very warm even when it is not being used. Also, the dvd's felt very warm when ejected from the unit. I also noticed that the metal plate which is behind the picture screen and only about 1/4" from the forward facing side of the DVD box was even warmer (about 110 to 120 degrees F). This heat is distorting the thin metal and plastic parts in the DVD unit, causing the parts not to be in correct contact and alignment (disk won't play and sometimes won't eject).
With the front and top covers removed from the DVD box and the box laying flat on a table (and no dvd in unit of coarse), I pushed downward firmly on the black plastic disk at the top of the drive, and also on the lever arm that is accessible through a hole near the left front of the unit until they bottomed out to bend them down some (the lever arm was warped upwards where it was actually rubbing the top of the case - that was the chunking sound I heard).
I then went to O'Rielly auto parts and bought a 1'x2' sheet of exhaust manifold gasket material for $8. This material is not flamable and will withstand temperatures that would melt this TV into a puddle. I cut the gasket material so that it would fit neatly inside the top cover of the DVD box (metalic side up), then put the top cover and front cover back on the unit. I cut another piece of the gasket material to fit snugly in the space between the forward facing side of the DVD box and the metal plate that is behind the picture screen (metalic side facing picture screen). I then reinstalled the DVD box into the TV. It was a little tighter fit than before, but went in OK and is still removable with some effort.
Both of the previously non-functioning DVD units I have play fine now in the TV. The disks eject perfectly every time now and I notice a significant difference in the temperature of the disks when I eject them. No more strange noises either.
These DVD units are fine and are actually quite well built, but they are just mounted too close to a heat source. A little insulation is all it needs. I cant believe Poloroid's design people can't figure this out.

Venturer lcd tv with dvd

That may mean no disk is inserted or the player can't read the disc

Cleaning the DVD player with a DVD laser lense cleaner.


If your disc it's self is dirty use a cleaning kit like this one below


THESE PRODUCTS ONLY WORK IF YOUR DISC is not scratched and does not require a full repair.

Wrong disc on screen

If you DVD player is damaged, and u have external AUDIO\VIDEO inputs.Buy a $59.00 scan DVD player & save yourself a $100 repair bill.
The DVD heads coud be internittan { sometimes it works & sometimes i don't } U could have issues with the country codes that tell your DVD where the DVD CD was made at or where is was recorded.

Dvd player comes up with pre-stop or invalid key

I would just return it to where you bought it and exchange for working unit. You probably just got a lemon.
