Question about RCA RTD315 Theater System

2 Answers

RCA RTD315 Theater System The DVD Player recently

RCA RTD315 Theater System The DVD Player recently stopped playing. If I insert a DVD or CD and close, it wil start to load, and then a few seconds later will open/eject. Pressing "play" or any other buttons (either on the unit or the remote) makes no difference. Each time the door closes, the DVD or CD loads for a few secons, then door opens. I tried a variety of CDs and DVDs--same thing happens with all of them. I also tried a laser lens cleaner disc---same thing happens, and I can't get it to play/clean. I'm beyond warranty. Any thoughts, or is it just junk at this point?

My identical system has exactly the same problem as the one described by dipaola, above. When I insert a DVD, the DVD carriage pops back open after a few seconds. In fact, mine won't stay closed even without a DVD in it, as long as the system is set to play a DVD. I'd like an answer to the big Q - Is there anything I can do about this, or should I just find another DVD player to hook into the system?

Hi there. first to dipaola, lens cleaning disk`s are no good. in some cases they can damage your lens. the most better way is to open the housing and clean the lens with a cotton tip and a gentle windowcleaner. don`t press too much aply the c-tip on the surface of the lens and spin it 3-5 times then use the other side of the tip to dry the lens - ready. close the housing and enjoy your disk. to Valerie. try also to clean your lens by this way, maybe it works for you too. in not so many cases it could be a defect or loose door-switch, which tells the player that the door is closed or open. in this case try to find`em (it must be near the door-slide ) this could get loose due to the vibrations of the disc`s. maybe you can fix this by yourself or a friend can help you. otherwise , good luck. lg. Gue.

Reads Bad Disc also. Just bought a memorex DVD lens cleaner disc. And that also reads bad disc.


What is the format of the data on your CD?

It is not all players that plays all CD's, so maybe the CD you inserted is among those that your player cannot play.

Or maybe you need to change the lens totally, but before you do this, try some other CD's on the player and see how it responds.

Wont play cd


I would suggest trying some sort of laser cleaning device. You can pick one up at Target or Wal*Mart. How it works is there are a few small brushes on what looks like a normal CD. When you insert this into your CD player, the brushes run over the laser head and remove dust and other particles from it. This can help when discs are unreadable, or if there is static while trying to play a disc. Hope this helps!

DVDs & CDs will not play


If you are playing STANDARD CD or regular DVD that you have purchase and you are having this problem,your dvd player is malfunction;however,if you are playing DVD burner disc or a different dvd region disc(we are region 1 in U.S.) that is no going to work.Same thing for your CD burner disc,it might not work.
If you are using a rental dvd disc,check and see if there is scratches?If so,try to get one without that many scratches!
