I had(have) the same problem. called panasonic's support # and they said there was no firmware update available that would fix the problem. They said it had to be "serviced", by which i'm assuming they mean the DVR drive needs to be replaced (or at a minimum the laser). They said it would cost about $135US...

personnally i'm just going to go out and buy a more reliable burner/player since i have a good VCR already anyways.

I had the same problem when mine was new, and Panasonic sent me an upgrade for this machine and it fixed it.

The player will read dvd but will not play cd

Richard: This is what said: "
  • Turn on the DVD player. It generally takes a few seconds to get going. Take out the DVD if there's one in the drive already.
  • 2 Make sure the disc isn't scratched or dirty. Use a soft rag to clean the disc if you see any smudges. Insert the CD into the DVD player's disc drive and close it.
  • 3 Press the "Play" button on the DVD player or remote control. Some DVD players will begin reading the disc automatically. Pushing the button works just as well.
  • 4 Use the "Scene Selection" buttons on your remote to select a track. Some DVD players have odd ways of ordering the buttons on the remote. You might have to play around a bit before you find all the right buttons to work the CD playing function of your machine.
  • 5 Crank it up and enjoy your music. The DVD player will act just like a CD player and play the tracks of the CD through the TV.

    Hope it was the non-acetone type of polish remover - acetone will melt plastic !!

    Invest in a laser eye cleaning disk - the kind with the tiny brushes.

    OK what type of file format are the files in on the disk you are tying to play?

    IDM-1731 does not like .AVIs.

    Check your documentation as to what type of files your player can actually read and play.

    Sorry I'm not more help.
