Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a Denon model DVM 1815 DVD/CD changer. When I put a DVD or CD into any one of the six slots the message screen reads loading. The DVD however will never load and a message will come up on the TV stating DVD may not be able to replay? Why will my DVD changer now not allow me to load DVD's? Thank you for your advice. Skip

The possible fault in your DVD system may be due to the following reasons:
1. inadequacy of the mechanism to complete the loading prrogram and so the mode remains unfulfilled. Hence the microprocessor never gets the final words for completeion of the total cycle and so gives the errror message as unable to play.
2. The seccond reason can be that after loading the servo does not take up the drive- this is the spinning and tracking. So if these is a driver failure in the main board for the motor conttrol this can happen.
3. One the possible fault can be the failure of the optical head. It is often found that heads are the majorr causes when it comes to a disc not playing. So you can clean the head and try to see if the laserr is detecting- do not look into the eye- if not the optical headd assmebly needs a replacement.
4. Finally the main board- the controla nd processor can be faulty. This must be checked in to see if there is any signal to drive and if so can it be due to any IC being defective in the procesing section.
Analyse these issues one by one.

Denon dvm-1815 changer drawer won't open. Stuck.

There is a belt that drives the chager tray. It is engaged with its loading motor pully and gear set that drives the tray mechnism. To replace the belt, you have to disassemble the mechanism. Actually it is a skilled work, and without knowing its disassembly method, it is almost impossible to repalce the belt by yourself. I've the dissasambly and reassembly method, described wiht help of pictures and all other details. If you have an interest to get it, you have to buy one amoung my audio services, advertised in Fixya site. Unlike previous Fixya site, this new site is different. With old site, I've the facility to send you pictures and PDF files, but with the new, I can't send any of such documents to you.
The document I've with me is an original published by Denon, Japan.
If you want to do this work by yourself, and want to get this document, do the needy. OK.

Screen message that the disc may not be compatible for playing and same when I put cleaning disc in. Both work in another player

Sound like the laser needs replacing. You can find a disassembly guide in google if you're game. It's fairly easy, but important to be gentle with internal cables. The laser replacement should be on ebay or such. Make sure it's the right model number. any questions, email.

Dvd in in player and won't eject. screen reads "loading".

Try unplugging the unit and plugging it back in after a couple of minutes, if cd still won't come out you can unplug the unit and manually remove the cd by taking the outer casing off.
