Re: pioneer dv 323
Zone is the region of your dvd player and what dvds its capable of playing. If you didnt know what you have done then its hard to know what could be wrong, first things first try this .. this is a factory reset that if you did change something important in the home menu it will fix it for you and start the system from the beginning when you first took it out of the box.
hope this helps mate.. if it doesnt email me back on here. jon
Resetting the system
Use this procedure to reset all system settings
to the factory default.
1 Switch the system into standby.
2 Press and hold the front panel

All the system’s settings are now reset, and
you should see the ‘Let’s Get Started’ screen.

hi, if your dvd player is giving you disk error message or no disk message then the chances are the laser lense needs cleaning.
What you need to do is go to any big computer store and purchase a dvd lense cleaning disk, dont buy the cheapest one as they tend not to work so go for mid range or top end one. Then all you need to do is put this disk into your dvd player and it will then clean the lense for you and should solve your problem.
If how ever you still have the problem then try different disk in it to ensure the dvd your trying is working ok if after doing this you still have the problem then the chances are the laser unit itself is no good and needs replacing. The problem with this is unless your dvd player is built into the telly then the chances are it would be cheaper to go out and buy a new dvd player as the cost of repair would more than likely cost more than the cost of a new dvd player
Those discs have a very strong copy protection mechanism to avoid making digital copies on PC systems but some DVD players won't play them because of that, if you have the original movie, download a copy from the internet, burn it to a dvd-r disc and play it. It's perfectly legal because you already bought the movie. The downloaded copies have no copy protection and will play better than the original. The PHILIPS DVD-Home theater players are specially picky about non-standar disk like the one you're trying to watch.
Use DVDFab to rip the files to your HDD, it will create a VIDEO_TSfolder and put all the video files in it. DVDFab is a whole movieripper only, so you're getting everything on the disk ripped to you'reHDD, once DVDFab is done, run DVD shrink. Use DVD shrink to open thefiles created by DVDFab (use the open files tab and browse to theVIDEO_TS folder created by DVDFab and choose it), at this point shrinkwill import the files, use shrink as you normally would to create yourbackup.
1) Dirt on the optical lens - solution use a DVD cleaning disk which can often resolve the issue - you can purchase these at any good Audio store. Insert into drive and play like a normal disk.
Alternatively if you feel confident enough you can open the casing - locate the lens and clean it gently with a Q-Tip and some alcohol cleaning solution. Remember to disconnect the unit from its power supply if you decide to do this.
2) The unit is not reading DVDs because the drive has become misaligned. This is not a user serviceable issue and the unit will need qualified service attention.
Hope this helps. Please do rate this answer. Many Thanks.
It's possible that one of the fuses have blown on the inside. Sony DVD players are known for this (Models DVP 330, 360, 560) and there are many complaints about it. They give the "No Disc" or "C-13" error. I ended up searching the internet and found people that had the same issue. I found the fuse and went to the store to find I had to buy 5 fuses because they were not sold separately. I ended up just soldering the connection knowing that it may break again any time. It works now and has been working for 4+ years since it broke. I'm not a very technical when it comes to electronics. I was just mad that my DVD player broke after the warranty expired. I originally paid $400US for the Sony DVD player. Now I can buy Sony DVD players for under $100US.
