Try using a DVD cleaning disk-If you already have done that- then try this before you take the machine in for repair. Take a HOSPITAL straw(you know, the type that bends) and insert it into the disk drawer. Now blow very hard-but try not to get spit down the straw. Move the straw around blowing up and down and sideways until you think you have really covered everywhere in the DVD slot. Then if you have one , put your DVD cleaning disk in, and run it. I know it seems like a crazy thing to do, but it has worked for others in the same situation. It works on RCA multi disk CD players too. If that doesn't work-it would probably be cheaper to purchase a new machine than get it fixed. Let me know if this helps. Remember that DVD lasers do burn out from time to time, and cannot be fixed.

Hi, I wonder if anybody can help me with a problem with my DV-717 DVD Player?

Hard question: Have you considered opening it to see what mechanism is doing and also to make sure something that does not belong inside got there in the mechanism?

I have seen where somehow a second disc got inserted and if the mechanism jams for any reason odd issues and or shutdown may happen.

I have a proton pds-2302, serial # pd230250022248. Purchased in 2006. Had been working until this year (2010). When I inserted a disc, nothing happened. I heard some whirling sounds and had difficulty...

as with all dvd type machines the lazer builds up dust and debree on the lazer lens this makes it harder for the lazer to read the incripted information on the disc. much like a torch bean being covered with a cloth the fix is simple you need to purchase a lazer disc cleaner it looks and works just like a normal dvd disc but it has brushes on it that when put through the player brushes the dust of the laser lens this needs to be done on a regular bases to keep your lazer working to its optimum level and hense fixing your problem.

best of luck
merry christmas
and please remeber to rank this advice as to how well it help you.

Insignia DVD player NOT WORKING

Hey jgconstable,

Before seeking repair assistance, there are a couple of options that you may wish to try out at home.

First, you may want to try cleaning any affected discs if you are only encountering this problem with a select few titles. Any kind of contaminant (dirt or lint) can often cause optical devices to not recognize a media title that is inserted. I would suggest checking each disc that is affected for any signs of scratches, and try cleaning them with a soft, lint-free (typically microfiber) cloth. Remember to use gentle, outward strokes from the center of the disc towards the outer edge.

Second, you may want to try cleaning the lens of the player itself. Many retailers (including your local Best Buy™ store) often sell commercial cleaning kits that are designed to be inserted directly into the player, in place of a normal CD or DVD.

If cleaning doesn't resolve the problem, you may wish to attempt resetting the player. Many DVD players will have either a physical reset button located someplace on the exterior casing, or be capable of a "soft reset." A soft reset is typically done by pressing and holding the power button for five to ten seconds, but please keep in mind that your owner's manual would have the most detailed information on how to reset the player to the original factory settings.

Should the player continue you malfunction, remember that you can always bring your DVD player into your local Best Buy™ store for service and repairs.

Hope this helps you out.

Go Ahead. Use Us.
