Question about Durabrand PDV-709
We were given a PDV-709 DVD player by some friends that does not play DVD's. It will play audio CD's just fine, but when we put in a DVD an error message comes up and says that there is no disc. Is this a problem that I can correct and if so how? Thank you for your time.
It could be a compatibility issue w/ the media you are using. To that end, ...
(01) Do you get this error msg. w/ original DVDs?
(02) Or are you trying to play DVDs created at home?
If your answer is YES to (01), then it is unlikely the issue is media incompatibility.
If the answer is YES to (02) (and NO to (01)), try using DVD-R dvds (media) rather than DVD+R (DVD+R is a newer standard that older players do not recognize).
There is another FixYa post (similar issue) w/ one solution HERE. The expert suggests having the lense (on the DVD player) checked and possibly replaced.
Please, let us know if this helps.
