SOURCE: disc problem

Use dvd + rw disks ....... They don't need any initializing or finalizing.

Bit more expensive than write only (r) disks, but they can be wiped and used over and over again since they are re-writable.

Worked for me, hope it works for you too. :o)

Best wishes.

I can't get the DVD player to view dvd on tv


hi konni.

DVD player not working with TV By Charlotte Parker 25 Aug 2017
You've got your Sky Box, your TV, your DVD Player and your surround sound; you've also got your digi-box, your DVD recorder, Blu-Ray Player. With all that equipment, if something goes wrong it can be tricky to track down the issue. This article explains why your TV isn't playing DVDs and how to get it sorted out.
Figuring out the problem
Figuring out why your DVD Player isn't working with your TV is a process of elimination, so work through the steps below to figure out the cause of the problem.
The problem could be:
  • The connector cables/connections.
  • The DVD disc itself.
  • The DVD Player's optical reader (the lens which 'reads' the DVDs).
  • The TV.

The connector cables/connections

Before doing anything, check all your connector cables. Make sure that all connections are in properly, and that the cables are in the right place.
One of the most important connections is the cable that runs between your TV and the DVD Player. If it isn't in place, then your TV can't read the information from the DVD Player and the film won't appear on your TV.

The DVD disc itself

Check for scratches, chips, smudges and any other marks. Test the disc isn't the problem by trying a different one in the player. If the new disc works, then the first one might need replacing.

The TVTry changing channels. Lots of TV's have a default channel specifically for DVD players. Have a look between the channels to see if the DVD menu appears.
On modern televisions, especially those connected to Digi-boxes or Sky Boxes, there's usually a 'Source' button on the remote control. Find it and go through until you reach the right setting for playing DVDs. To go back to watching normal TV channels after the DVD has finished, go back to the source button and change back to the original source.

That should be all you need to know to get your DVD player working with your TV
if none of above works then try putting a lens cleaner through it to try and clean the lens that reads the disc.

Need help working out what is wrong with my DVD player


If the dvd player is old it maybe the laser pickup lens dirty you can clean the lens but you have to be very very careful if you do try put no pressure on the lens
get a cotton bud/q-tip and clean the lens very gently you will not see much dirt but lite cleaning will remove a film from the lens
I hope this helps

Cannot read dvds. Display says incorrect disk


If the dvd player is doing this on all disks then there is something wrong with the laser assembly. Cost to repair for what it is, is prohibitive. If tv has audio video input, connect external player to that for viewing disks OR buy another combo.

The DVD you're using is probably from elsewhere than the region you live in. It is almost certainly possible to temporarily change the region by using a trick which will not damage your machine in any way. Google "Philips DVP642 region hack" and there will be an answer.

Symphonic Video/DVD player- dvds not able to be read so they don't play


possibly check the setup of the player. some dvd's will not work in most players. check the manual. if under warranty take back to store. or better yet buy another one like it and take the one that is bad back to the store with the new receipt.

Cannot finalize dvd-r


Have solved the finalized problem by simply looking on the Canon website and read that you have to plug the camera into the wall to do it! If only they simply put this in the manual!!! Goodluck!

"No Disc" error message


remove the cover of the unit and try to clean the lens with a soft clean dry cotton swab or if you have a compress air cleaner, just blow it. most of the time cleaning can solved this kind of problem. good luck!
