Hello Just power OFF the set by its main power OFF switch, and switch in ON, while listening very close to its mechanism side and see whether there is any sound of disc spin. If disc do not spin inside the mechanism, due to a faulty sled motor, the fault you descrbes here will occur. If disc spins inside, and still it does not reads the disc, the laser pickup unit is faulty and should be replaced. OK.
Hello Just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and replug into after 5 minutes or so. This should reset the set to its factory settings. If it does not help you, just take out the disc inside, and insert an other one. See whether it reads it or not. If not, the set need service. Especially service to its DVD mechanical side. OK.
Had same problem. Unscrew back TV. Unscrew 2 screws connecting VCR/DVD from TV Base. Unscrew DVD housing on all sides (approx 6 screws). At this point you can see the detached DVD unit. Facing the draw. look under it for a white plastic piece that you can slide to the right that should disengage the DVD's circular rotator from the dvd and slide the door open.
If that does not work disconnect the DVD from the 2 wire connector at the TV motherboard and dissassemble the black plastic DVD unit. Flip it over and manipulate the white plastic gear which will disengage the center rotator.
Veri8fy that the belt on the side of the VCR mechanism is intact. If it is, then check that the motor works, by appying 12 volts to it,with the belt disconnected. If the motor works, it might be that your mode switch needs cleaning, and that takes some fancy unsoldering and soldering.
It sounds like the VCR mode switch is dirty. This is located on the PCB, underneath the right hand side of the VCR mechanism. If you do not know what you are doing, I do not recommend trying to clean it yourself. You have to remove the VCR from the board, and pop the wheel off the top of the switch. Use a cotton swab with a bit of alcohol to clean it, and then put a dab of WD-40 on it. Good luck. Also, you might want to tryt to reset the VCR mechanism to the fully ejected position if it is not there already.
You have your DVD connected to your VCR, which is then connected to your TV, right?
The problem is Macrovision. It's designed to prevent you from connecting your DVD player to your VCR, so that you can't make duplicates of copyrighted movies. It's a real pain in the neck.
Try turning the DVD player off - or better yet, unplugging its power cord (as some DVD players are always in a standby mode, even when turned off). If that fixes the problem, then you need to reconnect your DVD player directly to the TV, not wired through the VCR.
If your DVD player isn't wired through the VCR, are you using some kind of wire splitter (one cable branches into two) to connect both the DVD player and VCR? That can also cause this kind of interference, if both have power at the same time. There are video switches you can get to work around that. Here's one such switch (first I found for a decent price with a google search):
Hope that helps.
