Re: dvd will not load
Load a disc and listen.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.
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.
If the problem does not get solved then you have to get it repaired.

Assuming there is not a forgotten tape stuck in the VCR side, the mode selection logic has gotten all confused. On the VCR side, a tape is grabbed and loaded to be played. There probably is an EJECT button that is enabled for later use. The DVD side is disabled so no buttons work. On the DVD side, the open/close button is enabled (if no VCR-side problem is detected), allowing you to place a DVD in the tray and close it to play. The VCR side is disabled so no buttons work. That's the theory. From your description a sensor on the VCR side may have failed or been damaged, causing the player to keep reverting to VCR and preventing use of the DVD side.
1: Get a movie and some popcorn.
2: Make sure the DVD player and the tv are turned on.
3: Push the button on either the front of the player or on the remote to open the player door to load the disc.
4. Put the disc on the tray that pops out
5. Push the same button pushed previously to close the door
6. Enjoy the movie
Something is wrong..crbr799 your DVD-TV has a TV-DVD button on the right front to switch from TV to DVD play...OPEN button on left side ,place DVD in tray, close & press PLAY... I something simulator that needs the remote control for the SPECIAL functions....by the way the ORIGINAL r\c is $135 to $155, a replacement ($35) will turn the TV\DVD on ( which you can do without the r\c) and NOT function with anything else. P.S. they will try to sell you universal r\c that work with the CABLE boxes, the ones that you pay a monthly fee!!
Make sure the batteries in the remote are working (they go in the back of the remote at the bottom).
Turn on the DVD player with the power button on the DP300 itself (lower left). Open the dvd tray either with the remote (press open/close button, upper right) or with the button on the DP300. Put a DVD in the tray and close it with the remote or the button on the DP300. The DVD should load.
Use the arrow buttons in the centre of the remote to select choices from the onscreen menu of the DVD. Press Play (centre of the 4 arrow buttons) to activate the choice you want. For example, if you want to play a movie, use the arrow buttons to go up or down until "play movie" is selected, then hit PLAY, and movie will play. If you want to choose a scene/chapter of the movie, use arrow buttons to go up or down until Scene Selection or Chapter is selected (highlighted), and press PLAY. This should bring up a list of the scenes or chapters. Use the arrow buttons to select the one you want, then hit PLAY, and that scene should play.
If the DVD tray is taking less than 20 seconds to operate, there is likely no problem. If it is taking more, there may be. I think the mechanism that opens and closes the tray is often the first thing to stop working on DVD and CD players.
Failure of the loading mechanism, possible that the drive is struck or the belt is worn out ,. You will need to remove the tray mechanism to check and confirm. The motor seems to work as there is noise but the drive is not working , possible belt slipping or gear slipping.
hi, Try the following to make your dvd player region free
1. Make sure there is no Disc in the tray. 2. Shut off the unit and unplug it from the AC outlet. 3. Press and Hold the "Play" and "Open/Close" keys, simultaneously on the player and not the remote control. 4. While holding these keys, plug the AC cord back into the outlet. (TEST and CPU ver# will appear on the display) 5. Release the "Play" and "Open/Close" keys. 6. Press DVD Menu twice on the remote. 7. When the display reads s000 5858 use the up and down buttons to change the 000 to 02E. 8.
Using the Left and Right arrow buttons, change the last four digits
until they read 0000 for Region Free, 0101 for Region 1, 0202 for Region
2 or 0404 for Region 4. 9. Press Enter on the player. 10. Press Standby and wait 5 seconds. 11.
Press Standby again. Your player is now set to the region you
requested. If you find some titles do not play on the region 0 setting,
you may have to hard select the appropriate region. ok
TRY THIS. It works on my Philips DVD player:
To make some DVD players play disks from different regions.
1. Connect DVD to TV ensuring both are then switched on.
2. Press "OPEN/CLOSE" button on DVD player.
3. Enter "8421" using remote control.
4. While watching TV screen repeatedly press "Select" on remote control until region 9 is reached.
5. Press "OPEN/CLOSE".
This is a common problem for this model. It has a memory IC that must be replaced. This is a surface mounted IC that requires exceptional soldering skills to replace. I work at an authorized Pioneer service center and have repaired a good number of these for this exact problem. Unless you have great soldering skills it is not something that should be attempted to do yourself, it can cause permanent damage to the board if not done perfectly.
If you have the proper skills and soldering equipment I will be happy to give you the Pioneer part number so you can replace it yourself. If not, then you really should just take it to a service center and have a professional do this.
