Question about Emerson EWL20D6 Television

1 Answer

DVD Player I bought my Emerson Flat Screen TV and DVD Combo about two years ago and lately I've been having problems with my DVD player. Originally it started out with my DVD player not recognizing DVD's right away but eventually it would work. Now when I put a DVD in it tries to read it and then immediatly spits it back out. It's exceedingly frustrating, is there anything I can do to fix this?

Try a lens cleaner, the laser may be dirty and need to be cleaned. The best way to do it is to buy a lens cleaning dvd:

Otherwise you can take a can of compressed air and spray it into the drive when the door is open, but that has just as much risk of putting more dirt on the lens as it does cleaning it off.

My friend took out the dvd player so the light stay on an when i tuurn it on it waits a sec then does red then green screen an goes to standby


The TV is indicating that a part of it is not working, like the dvd player that is missing. Modern electronics go through a set of tests and if a fault is found the stop working. Replace the dvd player, or get the set to a repair shop.

Toshoba tv/dvd combo. won't play many dvd's. makes clicking sound as it tries to load movie?


Dear Lesley!
It looks, like your DVD lens might get contaminated with dust and/or dirt, which is being picked up off DVDs. Let's try to load music CD, instead or DVD. If it loads well, I will suggest, that your DVD player is at fault and you must give up using it. External basic DVD players are quite inexpensive and easy to connect to your TV. But: if no CD, nor DVD load, the solution might be much simpler: use lens cleaner CD with brushes. good ones might even have a special fluid, which applied to brushes(alcohol based). Just load it into your TV's player and follow audible directions. After couple attempts, your lens should be clean enough to play DVDs. Please, don't try to use any "ear swabs", instead. The lengths is not long enough, plus it may damage load mechanism or get stuck inside. I've seen such a cases lately.
Good luck,
Thank you,
Alex.

Akai 32" wide screen lcd tv/dvd combo LCT3201AD


This may be an instance were the idea was great but the execution wasn't thought out. I've heard of several related problems that may be related. Both the TV and the DVD player tend to produce heat, not in great abundance, but together a sizable amount of heat. The power supply may have been ample for the TV at first but with the addition of the DVD player was not able to handle the extra load. If still under warranty you're all set. If not you might call Akai and see what they might be able to do for you.

I have an old emerson TV/VCR (Digital Tracking VHSHQ) The TV works fine, but when I put a tape in it is ejected and part of the tape stays inside, but can be pulled out.


Try a VHS Cleaning Tape Cassette. Follow it's instructions. If no better result it's not worth throwing away money on having repairs done but better put toward, if you can afford to, buying:
Option 1. A VHS/DVD player (combo as these are known) and plug that into the Emerson AV input.
Option Two: A VHS/DVD twin recorder combo deck - and plug that in.
Then start on copying any VHS tapes you cherish to DVD on this device.
Option Three: Forget the Emerson except for just using as a TV and buy a new TV with DVD player built in - the latest type of combo.
(I'm having to guess whether you've just used tapes to watch or record and watch)

I have been having just about the same problem with mine, i can watch the tv for about 20 min and then the dvd player comes on by itself then it goes to red, green, yellow, and black and white, i've tried resetting the dvd player to default but it hasn't helped mine.When i try to turn it off it automaticly comes back on so i have to unplug it.If i find a way to make mine work right i will send you a message to let you know so you can try it on yours. I've had mine just over a year and i don't have a warrenty anymore.

Hello, im sorry i speak little english, but i have a 19" emerson tv combo lcd, its new i buy it 2 days ago, and now has a dvd inside, and wont eject, and dvd dont work, what can i do?


On the DVD player face, look for a small hole about the size of a paper clip wire. Push a paperclip or toothpick into the hole and see if the DVD opens up.
