I have been playing DVDs without problem for several years on my RCA 20F510TD 20 in. TV/DVD Combo. Now when in the DVD mode, with a disk inserted, the screen comes up with no disk found. What can I do

NOT much you can do---It is a bad optical unit inside the DVD unit---they do not see parts----only the complete DVD portion----much cheaper to go out and buy a DVD player and connect it to the audio and video jacks this unit should have.

Hi.We can't help you here. Take it to a repairman. Inside you maybe able to check for a fuse but nothing else. If the cost is more than a new TV than you can decide for yourself. Good luck

How can i hook up an external dvd player to this tv? i followed the dvd player instructions but i cant get it to play...i can only hear the sound

On the front you have a yellow white and red port. Use the RCA cables from your DVD player to the front of this T.V. Change the T.V. input probably with the remote or just the channel buttons. If this doesn't work, use different RCA cables because the one's you're using may be bad.

I have a broksonic sc-20145 and the dvd player drawer will not open/close. could it be a bad motor?

With your ear next to tv do you hear the sound of a motor trying to open the dvd door. If so probaly a plastic gear that has failed that opens the dvd door otherwise could be the motor. Just go buy a $30 dvd player and connect to the tv input. not worth repairing and stay away from tv/dvd combos in the future for this reason that your having to expierence now.

Why do you want to get to the lens? Do you think it`s dirty, if so, try buying a laser lens cleaner, It will be a lot simpler and safer than stripping the set down.
In answer to your original question, Yes, You do have to strip the set and then you`ve got to strip the DVD player because it is buried inside a metal can. Then you`ve got to clean the lens, put it all back together, Praying that the fault has been cured. Please buy a cleaner first, I used to repair these kinds of sets and they are a nightmare, and I`ve been down this road before and it really is an awkward job especially when you put it all back together and then find that the CD door isn`t properly located or a lead isn`t connecting properly or a lead broke as you removed it. I`ve been there, I`ve got the T shirt. Ian

DVD won't eject.

I'm not sure about this model but there may be an access hole under the set right in line with the DVD player.
If there is there should be some graphic thing telling you which way to turn the screw inside.
Otherwise the case will have to be opened. If you do it PLEASE unplug the set from the power.

DVD going crazy

Not sure what the problem is..could be a problem with the relay or powerboard. Best bet is to get a repairman take a look at it. Dont try to open it yourself, as there are high voltages inside (even when powered off) that can kill...
