Hii bought my Onkyo DR-90 with no remote. I have a problem where the dvd only played the trailer and up to the main menu. I was not able to proceed further even when I press the play button numerous time. i have download the manual from the internet and try to reset the parental setting (just in case if it is lock) but when I press the enter buttun on the unit the only display that come out was a selection to activate the subwoofer. No parental control selection appear either on the display window or the tv. i have also tried buying a universal remote and have a programming code in. Everything seems to work fine except the dvd. It is still stuck at main menu without being able to proceed to movie viewing. another problem is when I press set up on the unit there is no menu appearing on the tv screen for me to do my selection. I'm stuck and I really don't know what to do next. Need your help to solve the problem as it is a pity to throw the reciever away while everything works fine. Help... P

SOURCE: Onkyo DR-C500 won't recognize discs

Onkyo units as well as several other manufacturers have a common problem where the spindle motor gets intermittant or wont come up to speed.Its not hard to replace this motor, but could be a trick to adjust the platter height. Also the unit probably needs a servo alighnment as well. This unit could also have a simple problem as a dirty laser lens. You can try to use a disc lens cleaner to see if that helps. Good Luck

SOURCE: Onkyo DV-CP702 will not load any disks!

HI,

Yes, it may be a mechanical misalignment. You may be able to find a way to readjust the tray, etc., but probably the focusing of the laser diode needs reset. For a dvd player this old, you are lucky to the extreme that it still works at all.

Any dvd player over two years of age that needs major repair should be replaced as the cost of repairs will be greater than the cost of a new set! Sad but true. You will not be able to get the focus adjustment done for less than $50!

So, my strong advice is to get a new dvd player.

FEW TROUBLESHOOTING STEPS YOU CAN TRY:

Does the player make squealing noises or is it totally quiet? Squealing noises may indicate that the player is trying to synchronize with the disc but can't due to an obstruction on the lens or in the laser path inside the pickup or a defect in the pickup. This can also be caused by an intermittent signal problem due to a faulty ribbon cable.

Totally silent means that the photo sensor is not getting any usable input from the laser at all, meaning that the pickup is "blind" for lack of a better word.
This can be caused by an obstruction of the beam by foreign matter on the lens or inside the pickup all the way to a marginal or failed laser diode and/or photosensor array. This can also be caused by a bad ribbon cable with one or more severed traces.

You could try to clean the optics. This is the most common malfunction as far as i know in all disc players. It would involve taking the cover off and finding a way to expose the lense, and then cleaning it with a very gentle brush. some players have a cover for the lense that swings to the side during playing, this greatly reduces the chance of dust accumulating, but its still worth the try.

If you actually see dust on the lense, then its just that simple. clean, close, play.


It may also be worth your while to check on the small shafting that guides the carriage of the laser pickup. Dirt, grome, dust and solidified lubricant can cause stoppage of the carriage and the laser eye then fails to read the next track. Please refer to the image below.

The unit is in protect mode. The outputs are fried in all likelyhood. This can be repaired. Figure on $5-$15 for parts plus the local labor rate for the total repair cost.

Not sure I can solve, but maybe help. I am having a similiar problem. However, make sure you Analog Audio (RCA type) cable are connected even if using Digital connection between the two. They use those cable to send the Commands (Mentioned in the documentation).
If you did get yours to work, please give me a hint... I upgraded mine from a 603 to a 701 and haven't been able to get it to work since.

Usually most DVD's play movie trailers and sometimes advertisement before the movie will play. Once the ads or trailers are done it should go to the menu screen and at that point "play" or something like that should be underlined.

hello inira. DR-1 and DR-3 are two separate but similar toshiba model types.
Your machine must offer both in that one machine. Your best bet is to replace the remote with a new original remote control.

How to get unit to play without remote


You can probably use the front panel buttons (STOP PLAY OPEN/CLOSE etc) manually, the only thing you cannot do without the remote is access certain DVD menus, including subtitles/language/special features etc. You can always obtain and use a universal remote for basic menu functions later on if necessary.

To play a DVD movie without the remote, simply load your preferred disc, wait for the player to finish reading its contents, then to skip copyright warnings and/or the 'play movie' menu screen, press STOP, then PLAY, or simply press PLAY button where 'play movie' (or whatever function) is highlighted in the menu. These buttons should be on the front of the main unit. Doing this should encourage the player to detect the appropriate title (the movie) and play it (basic playback operation may not be possible with some DVD releases due to the numerous interactive menus and title pages, such as film trailers).

If basic manual operation is not completely possible with some DVD titles, consider a universal remote for your player if you have either lost your original, or the player was purchased/received without one. Such remotes are relatively inexpensive to purchase, and are available just about everywhere.

Onkyo DR-UN7 DVD Receiver remote control code


Nowdays there are CLONE type remotes available form electrical stores.

These clone type remotes carry all the codes necessary to work TV, Vdeos, CD players and other domestic sound systems.

I would suggest that you visit one of these stores and see what they have for your ONKYO system, the cost is not great and you will walk out with a complete remote for your system that will work all the other controls as well..
The stores have a fold out paper list, (thats very long) showing model and manufacturer detail for what codes you need to enter into the new remote to make it compatible wuith your ONKYO system.

Cheers From YUBEUT
