Advent dvd player

In our infinite wisdom, we put 2 dvd's in the player, one on top of another and now the player will not work.

Any ideas?

I have an advent DV1418A and my built in dvd player wont work when i put a CLEAN WORKING disc in it says loading then it says "no disc" please help!

The READ head is dirty or damaged...very difficult to get to the back of TV to disassemble DVD player.. clean read (light diode) head with light cleaning fulid or don't take apart & use official cleaning DVD disc. Look on web site for CD\dvd cleaning disc.It looks like a CD but has 'fuzz' or a very thin " rug" on 'read' side of disc.

Where can i get a new remote for my sanyo dvw6100 dvd/vcr player

Sorry, you can't. SANYO in their infinite wisdom, decided not to stock after market spare accessories for their products. I suggest a universal remote but those are limited in function and sometimes hard to use even without a code. The only option is to try and find another combo unit (good used ones can be found on places like craigslist, eBay, etc.) either online or in a local secondhand shop. The price depends on the age and specifications of the unit (at least it may have its original remote in working order which helps a tad).

The only good news about this is this will not cost you a trip to any service centre; you keep your SANYO. According to another forum I read recently, SANYO no longer services their products nor do they offer after market accessories/parts, most agents who are meant to repair such items, won't even touch SANYO.

Can't dub from VHS to DVD. Tried 16x DVD+R, which the book says should work.

Yea, I tried this to. The movie people, in their infinite wisdom, put an encoding on the tapes so you cannot make a copy of "their" work.

You should be getting an error like this or at the least that the recording will not start.

I gave up since there are only a very few that this will work for.

Advent DVD player in vehicle - can't get sound through speakers

I just solved this problem on my Ford Edge 2010. Start the dvd. Hit the FM button on the remote. It will pop up an FM radio frequency in the top left corner of the screen. For example, ours is 88.7. Tune the car radio to that frequency and the sound should come through the speakers. Hope it works for you.

Every disc is a "Bad Disc".

This is due to faulty DVD lens/head. Try cleaning it with DVD/CD hed cleaning CDs.If still the problem persists, contact near by service center for replacing the faulty Lens.

Pioneer dvd recorder dvr 310

I've seen this problem somewhere before, ran across it on a service call or something and I just can't remember where.. Just getting old I guess.. You should have a "Return" button on the remote. Press it and the "2"... That should allow you to access the unit again. What you've done basically is set the unit up as unit 2 and you could have as many as 3 identical units all operating from the same remote. So, Pioneer, in their infinite wisdom decided to make three specific designation points and allow you to switch the remote to access each one without disturbing the rest... If this doesn't solve the problem you might try calling Pioneer support, 800-421-1404 and they should clearly be able to help. Good Luck Bill
