Question about Recoton Advent Advent DV1418A 14 in. TV/DVD Combo

1 Answer

Advent model DV1418A

My next door neighbor gave me this tv/dvd combo today,stating it did not work,but I could have it if I wanted to giva a go at fixing it. Tv comes on just fine,but when DVD inserted, I get message "NO DISC". I tried using a maxell DVD cleaner on it twice in a row,then a program screen comes up,but that's it. I feel it would work,and is probably something easy,if I only knew what... Any suggestions?

    I have an advent 14' TV/dvd combo. Model DV1418A. I need to know if it will take a CableCard.I don't have a cable  box on it and have lost some digital channels. I'm now getting an onscreen message that I can get these channels with a CableCard. The cable company says speak to  manufacturer,,,whose number is not in service.  HELP. I;m not so great with technical stuff.

the "NO DISC" could mean that the heads are damaged, the disc(disks) [ you did try more then one?] are dirty, not the right DVD format.Even a small finger print,smug can cause problems!
you will have to take the TV\DVD apart to find the problem. I would suggest, buy a simple DVD player and connect it to the back or the [AV] audo\video plugs.

I have an advent DV1418A and my built in dvd player wont work when i put a CLEAN WORKING disc in it says loading then it says "no disc" please help!


The READ head is dirty or damaged...very difficult to get to the back of TV to disassemble DVD player.. clean read (light diode) head with light cleaning fulid or don't take apart & use official cleaning DVD disc. Look on web site for CD\dvd cleaning disc.It looks like a CD but has 'fuzz' or a very thin " rug" on 'read' side of disc.

Message reads NO DISC on Advent model DV1418A


Is the disc an original DVD or copied. If it is copied and the DVD is old the DVD will not read it and tell that there is no disc. You also need to have the laser checked. Did it do it for a number of disks or just one. If you have only tried one disk, try another

Power light on but nobody's home?


The power supplies in most all the smaller combo units are prone to failure. They feed both the TV and the VCR and are underdesigned as they try to keep the cost of a combo affordable.
I've never had much success solving them - sorry
They always break that last time!
