When I open the dvd lid, and I put the dvd in and close it, the screen still says its open and it wont do anything until the dvd lid is closed. Even though I close it, the player still thinks its open.


There is a mechanical switch that is operated by the lid as it's closed. Sometimes, a DVD player such as yours can be made to work by pressing down on the lid but this is a sure indication that something is wrong with the switch. It isn't practical to hold the lid down for the entire time you're viewing a movie so repair or replacement is the only solution

The dvd player wont open and it isn't reading dvd's.


You will want to check in Device Manager to see if the device is even detected by the computer. Right Click My Computer, Properties, Click Hardware Tab and Device Manager. If it isn't recognizing the DVD drive then it is most likely bad.

Dvd rw or cd-r/rw not being reconized by computor


Hi there,

Uninstall the drive via Device Manager, restart your system and let Windows install it.
Update to the latest Windows Service Pack.
Download the most up-to-date Chipset drivers.

If none of these work, clean your registry.

This is free, and will fix. Choose Clean Up if you have XP, or choose Beta version if you have Vista.

Hope these solve your problem
