Hi there. I have a dvd/mpeg4/tv/fm/usb/game unit which I purchased recently while in China. There is no brand name visable. The problem is, the dvd unit will now not play dvd's. It had the problem every now and then, but I would just open the lid and reclose to get it going. There is now no action, whatever I do. The dvd does not spin when starting. It will state "no disc" Is it worth taking to a repairer? or does it sound to you like it should head for the rubbish? Please advise

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.
Purchase or borrow an imported DVD. The only real reason to make your DVD player region-free is if you plan on watching imported DVDs. Locate your DVD player's brand name and model number. These can usually be found on the box the DVD player came in, or on a sticker close to the video inputs or on the bottom of the DVD player. Have your remote handy. You will need your remote to enter the input codes into your DVD player. Locate a Web site that can help you with the codes you need for your particular DVD player, since all DVD players have different codes. Try DVD Exploder or Video Help (see Resources below). Both have an extensive list of codes for almost every kind of DVD player manufactured. Enter your brand name and model number when prompted to do so on the Web site. If your particular model number is not available, try searching under the brand name. Sometimes you will be able to find a model number that is close to your DVD player's model number. Enter the codes into your DVD player with your remote. Be sure the DVD player's door is open-almost all codes require the door to be open. Test your imported DVD to see if it works, once you have entered your code into the DVD player.
I have just bought this unit and have been using the menu recently. The only ways i can see to do it would be to either, (as you say) plug it into a HDTV, or navigate the menu blind and hope for the best.
If you press SETUP on your remote once to get to the menu setup screen and then push the RIGHT navigation button 3 times this should take you to the system setup screen. Then push the DOWN navigation button 4 times and then push ENTER. At this point it asks you for a 4 digit password to reset the unit which is a factory preset, 5555, so type that in. This should then reset the DVD player to factory settings.
Hope it helps,
