Loading is blinking

Try using a cleaning disk for the laser eye. This is a special dvd with a brush grafted on it to clean off thedoirt on the laser. Hired DVD;s are often covered in greasy finger marks and other debris which gets transferred to the iris as the disk spins. this eventually clogs the laser and it can no longer do a load and often reports no disk.

I get "cannot play disc" command with purchased dvd movies on home dvd player altho they play on pc. This problem just started i was able to play any dvd on home unit before

Try using an iris cleaner on the unit. It is a disk with a brush grafted onto it. Put it in and run for 6 seconds or so and the laser eye will be cleaned. That should correct the problem. Many hired DVD''s have greasy finger marks on them and it is transgferred to the iris, eventually causing it not to be able to play the disk

Trouble playing

Use an Iris cleaner to remove the dirt from the laser eye.

Hired disks are usually dirty and deposit muck on the reading eye over a oeriod of time. This needs too be regulkarly cleaned. That way you will have less of the unreadable errors

Error sign

Try using a cleaning disk to remove dirt etc from the laser eye These disks cost about $20 and are invaluable to keep the player in good condition. If you use a lot of hire dvd's they often have a lot of dirt and residue on them from other peoples dirt units. 99% of errors lo0ading or insert disk into player are from a dirty iris.

other than that is it a legal copy did you purchase it from a retail outlet if you did .. I would hire a copy of the same film from my local video store if it plays your disk is at fault if not you have a software read problem . In the event it did play take the dvd back to the shop you bought it from and see if there machines play it if theres do then it confirms a fault on your set ... hope this helps regards Vortash

I have a Pioneer DV 585A DVD player that happily plays DVDs and the background sounds seems to be fine, but on some of the DVDs you can hear the voices of the characters speaking and then on another you...

Hi edwardm1,

If you are only hearing part of the audio from your DVD player, I would suggest you check your audio settings before seeking repairs.

Audio can be encoded to a DVD in several ways. If the audio on the disc is different than the settings on your DVD player, you may not hear all of the audio layers. For example, if your DVD is encoded in 5.1 Surround Sound, but your DVD player is set only to play basic Stereo, you may only hear portions of the audio.

Try accessing the menu on your DVD player, and look for the audio settings. If there is a higher setting available than is currently selected, try a higher audio setting. A higher setting should also be compatible with lower types of audio encoding.

If this does not improve your audio, or if you need help navigating your product menus, I would recommend giving Pioneer's toll-free support line a call at (800) 421-1404.

Thank you,
Go Ahead. Use Us.

DVD eating discs

It's obvious that the DVD is stuck in the player. There's only one way to get it out! You have to open the DVD player. If you have never done this before, I don't recommend that you do it.
