    I have the same problem-I insert a DVD-it makes a lot of noise while the player tries to read the disc, then the message states WRONG DISC. I tried using a disc cleaner, as well as checking all of my settings to make sure my kids didn't accidentally set any controls, but it still won't work, and hasn't since about 6 months to a year after we got it.

The problem is with the disc players laser tracking system. You may still be able to repair it by taking it apart and doing a though clean of the laser and the disc transport system. This requires that you have the proper tools and work space to open up the television and take out the disc player transport and work on it.If this seem over your head as far as working on it . Try to find a school in your area that is teaching television repair and other products. Find out if they allow people to bring in their televisions for repair at the cost of parts only.If they do then allow them to work on you dvd player and hopefully, they can find the problem and repair it for you at low cost. If you cannot get the school to help you, maybe one of the teachers or students can help you with your problem. I hope this helps you with your problem.

I have a JVC TV/DVD combo and the DVD stopped working

This is a common problem with DVDs. You must not leave them idle for such long periods. Second, you must always leave a disc inside the player. It protects the optical lance from dust. There may be some dust deposit on the lance or the loading rubber belt may have gone lose or the spindle motor which rotates the disc might have gone slow. But to solve this problem you will need a qualified technician. Good luck.

We have a spectroniq pdv-768. When we put in a disc and it try to load it it come back and says WRONG DISC. How do we get it to read the disk and play?

If your dvd player on your flat panel tv says "wrong disc" then it usually means that the format used to create the disc is not compatible with your player. Read the manual that came with your tv to figure out what file formats are acceptable for burned discs. Try another disc. Verify with a store bought disc that your player works. If it plays regular discs and not home made or burned media, then you will know that its just the file format used when the disc was created that is causing the issue.

Is this a blueray player? If it is, the disc you put in probably isn't formatted to the blueray. If it is a standard dvd player there is probably something wrong with the player. You have two options. One, to take it in for service or two, to get another dvd player. If you have another dvd player in your home, try the disc you can't play from the one player and put it into the working player. If that works, then something is wrong with the dvd player you are having issues with.

If the disk is not spinning in the drive, and a invalid disk message appears, remove the disk and unplug electrical socket. Open the DVD tray and remove the disk. Locate the lens within the tray. You should notice that it is on a small tab that moves left and right. Its default position is to the right, near where you clip in the center of the DVD. If it is all the way to the right, it is stuck. Find a small screwdriver, or something equivalent, and GENTLY pry the tab loose. DO NOT touch the lens, or pry near the lens, this may damage the player. Brace the other end of the loading tray while you're prying because it may require more force than you think. Keep in mind, this was the solution for me while the disk was NOT spinning and reading an invalid disk message. I'm currently stuck on that problem.
