try buying optical clean for the cd play run it few time before you do any thing else, make sure you buy one that has media disc cleaning fluid. put few drop of liquid on each pad push play, fast forward, stop reverse forward, stop few times, let it run until it stops. you mite find it at walmart but you may have to go dvd or record store, radio shack may also have it
First check the relay that pulls in when a record loads up and the amps come on, the contacts may be dirty or burnt away, then another possible cause is the small spring under the turntable, is it stretched .Another relay check, thats the one that pulls in when you power up without playing.After all that, is it a loose wire to the mech or credit unit, if you pull a plug off and look at the end they can look ok but be broke inside.Let me know if you can Skype so i can explain better
I seem to be having the same problem and all signs point to the serial control board board Pt# 0046630 under the player. The symptoms with mine were randomly cutting off songs about 20 sec after song start and returning disc to carrier. It started mostly when juke was first turned on (cold) and then progressed to all the time and now display on cd board is dark only randomly coming to life then dead again. power on the sub transformer is good and when it comes to life player works well. I am sending the board to be repaired.
DVD movies usually send out a digital signal, like dolby digital, and this requires a matching decoder in your receiver in order to hear anything. Regular CDs don't use dolby digital, usually. Check you receiver to make sure it can decode the digital signal, and check your optical or digital coaxial cable.
All players need cleaned from time totime. Do NOT try to clean it with anything other than a CD / DVD lens cleaner. They are available almost everywhere that sellsBlank media. It will clean the lens without scratching or smearing it.
If this is a common problem to most CDs and DVDs that you are playing, then it could possibly be the slider shafting in the mechanism of the unit. The optical reader/lens laser eye sits atop a carriage that slides on this shaft roughly 2~3cmm in dia and about 6 cm long. This tends to accumulate dirt, grime, dust and cakes the lubrication. Rebuilding normally solves the problem. This would call for opening the unit to gain access, clean with alcohol or contact spray, relube and dry test by sliding the carriage which should move freely to and fro.
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
It sounds like the DVD region (a setting in both your OS and your DVD hardware) may have been changed. DVD regions are the agreed upon method (by entertainment companies, hardware manufacturers and governments) to limit cross-border sharing of media. Most valid (read: non-pirated) DVDs have a region code. Your DVD drive will only play DVDs with a region code that matches the DVD region code set on the DVD drive.
You didn't mention your OS but if you are running Windows XP then go to Start->Control Panel->System->System->Hardward->Device Manager and find your DVD player. Right-click the DVD player and select Properties from the menu and you should see a properties dialog-box with a DVD region tab. This is where you can change the DVD region that your player will recognize. Be careful, don't play around here, most DVD players have an embedded limit on the number of times (4-or-so) the DVD region can be changed.
