After inserting disc the player shows "no disc"
I recently had this problem with my combination CD / DVD player: would play cd's just fine but wouldn't recognize or play DVD's. There are a few potential things that could cause this problem: bad dvd mechanism, bad laser, bad wiring/circuits. There was a part called "DVD mechanism" on my unit (Onkyo DV-CP706) that was bad. That seems to be a common failure on Onkyo DVD players, at least judging from these help forums. It may be a common failure for DVD players in general. The part cost me $50, and labor was $100. For my unit, not under warranty anymore, it was still worth it to have it fixed rather than buy a new one. If you just have a cheapie $50 DVD player it's probably not worth it to have it fixed. Otherwise, take it to an authorized repair center for your particular brand and it will probably come back to you in better shape than when you bought it new. That, and you'll help save the environment by not dumping another piece of home electronics in the landfill. :)
