Question about Denon CD Players

Open Question

Unlock code for Denon DVD 1103

We purchased our DVD player while living in China 3 years ago, and now on our return to Australia, we are unable to play Australian DVD's.   The local Denon store advised us we would need to send the player to Japan!! I was wondering if anyone could possibly help with an unlock code which would allow us to continue to use this player?
Many thanks and regards, Cathy

SOURCE: The DVD player does not recognize disks that it used to play before.

It sounds like the DVD region (a setting in both your OS and your DVD hardware) may have been changed. DVD regions are the agreed upon method (by entertainment companies, hardware manufacturers and governments) to limit cross-border sharing of media. Most valid (read: non-pirated) DVDs have a region code. Your DVD drive will only play DVDs with a region code that matches the DVD region code set on the DVD drive.

You didn't mention your OS but if you are running Windows XP then go to Start->Control Panel->System->System->Hardward->Device Manager and find your DVD player. Right-click the DVD player and select Properties from the menu and you should see a properties dialog-box with a DVD region tab. This is where you can change the DVD region that your player will recognize. Be careful, don't play around here, most DVD players have an embedded limit on the number of times (4-or-so) the DVD region can be changed.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: denon udcm m7 cd player often reads ERR on play and eject

Try cleaning the laser first. Take care, because it is delicate.

Some instructions of how to clean a CD laser:
http://www.wikihow.com/Clean-a-CD-Player

If the cleaning does not fix the fault, it is possible that the laser is weak, or there are some problems in the electronics in the CD player. This is not something you will be able to service yourself, unless you are properly trained, have experience, and have the proper setup to perform CD player servicing.

In most cases these CD players are not cost effective to service. You can contact the orignal manufacture for details or any recomendations.

SOURCE: denon seperates

The most likely cause of this problem is the laser is becoming weak. You may be able to get a bit more service out of it by manually cleaning the laser with a cotten bud and some alcohol. However the only real solution is to replace the laser assembly.

It depends on how good at taking things apart and putting them back together you are, weather you should try this yourself. The laser assemblies often have the part number on the side of them, if not you will need to contact Denon who may tell you what it is if you are lucky.

Almost all laser assemblies come fully clibrated and all you need to do is remove the old one and replace it with a new one. You can get the parts from CPC in the UK unfortunately I don't know about other countries.

I remember that particular one yes, he emailed me the final solution to the problem. Below is the excerpt of his email to me. After doing the steps below it worked. If it does not in your case message me back. You are using the supposed multiregion DVD player that isnt multiregion when you buy it right?

SOURCE: have a Denon DCD-520 and it skips forward and back while playing

Hopefully, it may just need cleaning and lube.

I have a Denon DCM-460 purchased from Goodwill a couple days ago and had problem with one CD-R skipping and stuttering toward the end.

Cleaned the CD which helped a little but still started skipping and stuttering.

Noticed a scratch toward the outer end which I suspect is where the problems occurred.

Anyway, last night I cleaned laser, rails, lubed spindles and moving parts. I used 99.9% alcohol to clean. I used a light teflon oil (Tri-Flow) to lube spindles and rails. And white electronic grease where you see remnants of white grease.

Today, I now played through the problem CD-R with no problems.

Assuming placement is level and stable, certainly worth a try and the effort.

I have a dcd 1650 and it won't read discs, but sometimes it does, I have checked and cleaned lens


A Laser Lens malfunction will cause this to happen and is a common problem. This can be fixed at home if a new Laser Lens or Laser Lens w/ transport can be found for your unit. I used ebay to purchase a new Laser Lens for my Denon DVD 5900. The part is also sometimes available from parts stores like Parts Express for a premium, $100+ Parts Express vs $17 ebay in my case. I would recommend purchasing a FACTORY SERVICE MANUAL from an online vendor. The manual will cost between $10 - $20 and is downloadable. The installation is very straight forward. The part that might not be clear would be the grounding shorts on the new Laser Lens. THE NEW LENS COMES SHORTED AND AFTER THE PART IS INSTALLED IN THE PLAYER THE GROUND SHORTS MUST BE UNSOLDERD FOR IT TO WORK CORECTLY. The part comes this way to protect the Laser from static shock damage.
The repair on a Denon DVD 5900 cost $30 and took about an hour to complete.

Hi, The power light flashes on and off on my Denon DND 9000 cd players when switched on. Nothing else lights up or works.


The problem is the power circuit board part number GU-3413. It costs about $200 to replace and can be purchased from any of Denon's authorized parts distributors.

The 3 disc player on the Denon D-C35 3 n 1 unit selects the chosen disc , loads then unloads it with out playing it. Can I fix this myself thanks Ron Thorpe


First clean the laser head with a Qtip and alcohol. It gotta be perfectly clean, so wipe with fresh brand name qtip and make sure there is not a single dust particle on it. You gotta remove the cabinet with star screwdriver. Your beam might be tired, Denon doest have the longest laser beam assembly lifetime, usually after 4 years, problem start. First try with the clean up!

The message Dig.Unlock Means:
"There is an incomplete connection of the digital input jack during

due to some other factor."

Cd player flopped @ a party


This is a normal problem with these players. Trust me I own two of them. There is an overheating problem with them. they usually oveerheat after about 3 hours. I usually just throw on a long mix and let the other player cool off. Check the unoffical Denon forums and you will see that this has been a problem for years.
