Disc says loading and goes no further


First try different DVD discs. All players of DVD or CD are likely to fail in this way over time. You can try to clean the lens inside the unit, but it may not fix it. Its wise to buy the cheapest replacement, because they never last much longer than a year.

My Allure TV is working well unfortunately the DVD isnt. I put the DVD in and it starts loading then says no disc. It sounds scratchy when loading. The TV works well but I use the DVD every day can yo


The only solution is buy a DVD disc cleaning kit and follow the instructions, this will clean the plastic lens and maybe get it back in working order. Second option is to buy a cheap DVD player in hopes the back of the set has the proper audio and video input jacks.

Emerson dvd/cd ewd7002 wont play anything


The first thing to check is the condition of the disc you are trying to load, if it is so very dirty that the laser can't read it, as might be expected from a child's disc, then cleaning it may well resolve the issue.

sometimes this happens. now. the dvd you put in was it rewritable. a friend could not run his dvd recorder until i gave him a dvd+r rw disc in and lo, it worked.
some dvds have this function without telling you, perhaps it is in the instructions in small print. 
also, try a straight dvd+r disc, not a rewrite. experiment with other discs because some will not see cheap discs but expensive ones.
i have dvd that does not even reconise a dvd, but when i wish to burn a dvd, i use that one because it is the best.
strange isnt it...

Toshiba SD-K860 DVD Player wont load DVD's


Having the same problem. DVD player loads enough to identify it is a DVD or a CD, but won't actually start playing anything.
