XDVD710 Whenever I try playing DVDs the screen says bad disc the CD and tuner works fine but with the disc inserted I hear thedisc sspinning with occasional beeps then get the bad disc message and the disc...


The laser unit is most likely faulty and requires replacement. There are usually separate laser diodes for the CD & DVD reading, so the CD might work perfectly while the DVD won't.

"Bad Disc" message when reading a disc with JPEG files


Hi

Similar Issue happen to one of my client what we have done is putting the JPEG files into folders (Not Subfolder). It worked well however some JPEG images being skipped if the size is unusual. JPEG images will appear as tracks. Hope this will be helpful. If issue persist please post once more. Also let me know if WMA files are being played.

Good Luck

My coby dvd player will not load dvds. After trying to load, I get a message that says "Wrong Disc". I have tried to put in other dvds, but get the same response. These dvds work in our other dvd...


its probably the laser is misaligned. somtimes you can maually reset it by takeing the disc out and sliding the "eye" toward the center. this will possibly break it, but a misaligned laser is not going to work so you;ve got nothing to lose. put in a disc you know is good, no scratches, and turn it on again.
good luck!

The machine keeps stating bad disc, for all dvds. We have the GoVideo DVD VCR combo... we tried playing several different dvds and the machine keeps coming up with "bad disc".


It could just be dirt on the lazer/lens. Try cleaning it with a good brand name lens cleaner for DVD/CD. If that doesn't do the trick there might be damage to the lens, or an electrical fault.

I can't play dvds but I can play copied dvds


Most copied DVD-Videos for home playback use a CSS crack to strip the region code i.e. to Region 0 to they will work in all DVD players.

However most standalone DVD Players can have this restriction lifted using a sequence of codes.

First check your current firmware version to see if you need to upgrade:

1. When TV shows Philips wallpaper, close disc tray with no disc.
2. Press <0>, <0>, <0>, <9>, <OK> on the Remote Control.
Note: In case the firmware version does not appear on the screen, eject and close the disc tray to reset, and try again.

In this case region is 2 (UK) and the firmware is “Feb 23 2007” this is the latest for this DVD VR.

There are other codes that can be used to set this DVD to region 0 it might be a good idea for you do to the same with yours.

I'm having disc error messages or/and I cannot play dvds region 4


Below is a process to unlock the region's in that DVD player. There were a few methods try this one and post back letting me know how it goes.

1. Remove any disc in the tray.
2. Using the remote, turn the power off.
3. Turn the power on.
3. Open the empty tray.
4. Close the empty tray and wait until the player recognizes there is no disc in the tray.
5. Press "Menu, 1, 9".
6. A large rectangular area will appear in the bottom half of the screen; in the middle of the rectangle will be a single number that identifies the region to which the player is set.
7. Pressing the number keys on the remote will have no effect. Instead, use the up or down arrows above and below the "enter" button to change the region number. ("0" presumably is "region free".)
8. Once you have selected the region code (i.e., the number that now appears in the middle of the rectangle) press "enter".
9. Press the "opne/Close" button and the unit will save the selected code.

Hope this works let me know .Thank you for choosing Fixya! Feel free to leave a positive rating if this solution helps.

LG DVD player LG276


I picked up a LG DV276 DVD Player here in Australia but I am from the United States so I own region 1 DVDs. I unlocked my new player by instead 1. Open the tray. 2. Press 0 0 0 0 on the remote and a Menu will appear. 3. Press 0 for region free. 4. Press pause and power off.

I can play everything now, Aussie and US DVDs. Thanks LJ66.

"wrong disc" display


I have the same problem with my DP313 Norcent. I found though that it will play recorded dvds. It also will play older Dvds and some Anime ones. It will play older recorded mp3s but NOT newer ones, I'm not sure if it's because they are burned at a faster rate or what. Also it will not play any of the new dvds except as stated before some of the Anime ones. It pays to try everything out to ensure it not a mechanical problem. I found it's not with mine, but still unsure why it won't play new dvds?
