Hi,

So the problem is that the player is not able to read the discs right?

Waiting for your reply..

    see if the player tries to read the disc. Load a disc and listen.
    Does
    the player make squealing noises or is it totally quiet? Squealing
    noises may indicate that the player is trying to synchronize with the
    disc but can't due to an obstruction on the lens or in the laser path
    inside the pickup or a defect in the pickup. This can also be caused by
    an intermittent signal problem due to a faulty ribbon cable.

    Totally
    silent means that the photo sensor is not getting any usable input from
    the laser at all, meaning that the pickup is "blind" for lack of a
    better word.
    This can be caused by an obstruction of the beam by
    foreign matter on the lens or inside the pickup all the way to a
    marginal or failed laser diode and/or photosensor array. This can also
    be caused by a bad ribbon cable with one or more severed traces.

    You
    could try to clean the optics. This is the most common malfunction as
    far as i know in all disc players. It would involve taking the cover
    off and finding a way to expose the lense, and then cleaning it with a
    very gentle brush. some players have a cover for the lense that swings
    to the side during playing, this greatly reduces the chance of dust
    accumulating, but its still worth the try.

    If you actually see dust on the lense, then its just that simple. clean, close, play.


    It may also be worth your while to check on the small shafting that
    guides the carriage of the laser pickup. Dirt, grome, dust and
    solidified lubricant can cause stoppage of the carriage and the laser
    eye then fails to read the next track. Please refer to the image below.



    If still ur problem is not solved then i am sad to say you have to get it repaired and thats the only solution..

    Good luck..

Hiya Celty,

We can check on this, but it'd be good to have some more information first:

What kind of disk(s) have you tried?
Are they new disks or home-burned?
Are the bottom disk surfaces clean and free from scratches?

    Honestly Celty, if it's a new player and it's not playing any good disks, I'd recommend returning it for a different one because it's likely faulty and who wants to dig around in their brand new dvd player?

MAKE Please this steps and fix it. Merry Christmas.
Turn on your DVD player.
    • 2
Open the DVD player's main drive, also commonly called the DVD "tray." The region cannot be changed while a DVD is in the machine, so many DVD players require the tray to be open as an extra precaution.

    • 3
Push "Info" or "Setup" on your remote.
    • 4
Use the remote to select the "Region" option as indicated on your TV screen.
    • 5
Select "Region 9" to change the system to multiregion formatting. Regions 1 through 8 represent specific geographic locations and will not allow multiregion playback.

What is the multi region unlock code


SEE THIS .GOD BLESS YOU
Manufacturers of DVDs and DVD players install codes that only allow us to play DVDs that are manufactured for our region. (For example, the U.S. and Canada are region 1, while China is region 6.) To make your DVD player region-free, you'll need to find the unlock codes that will allow it to play DVDs from all over the world. Below are some steps to help make your DVD player region-free.

Unit model D-C350/XSA only opens region 4 need to also to open region 2 DVD's


Hi there,

When I was with Samsung NZ, the following was how we multizoned our DVD (Region 4) players:
1. Turn on your player, but ensure no disc in machine - screen should show "No Disc"
2. Turn on your TV and select your DVD input (as if you were to watch your DVD).

Using your factory supplied remote, press the following buttons:

3. Press the Repeat (or Repeat A-B) button
4. Press the following button sequence: 7, 6, 8, 8, 4, 9 (you should see the number '9' appear on screen - this means 'Region Free').
5. Press the Open/Close button (to open the tray)
6. Press the Open/Close button again (to close the tray)
7. Press Power OFF (to shut down your DVD player)
8. Press Power ON (to turn on your DVD player)
9. Insert Region 2 disc and wait (up to 1min) for firmware to respond and read your disc

If this fails, try procedure again, except for Step 4: change the last number (instead of 9) to '2'.


Let me know how you get on.

Cheers,

Scott

Does anyone know how to de-code or hack a TEAC DV-H500 cd/dvd player. After owning for several years i still can't play or watch many disc's. Many Thanks


This works with some dvd players, don't know if it'll work with yours... With the remote, open the tray... punch in 9,9,9,9...and then enter, and then '0' and hit enter again. This breaks the region code or allows playing of any disk.
