My DVD player keeps saying forbid while driving. I just got the head unit and can't figure out how to get it to play DVDs


Most dash-mounted dvd players have a "park" switch that disables them from playing unless the vehicle is in park - cuts down on distracted driving.

Dvds keep skipping


It is possible that your portable set has a defective optical head and so does not read properly the cds. Hence it will be good if you cna get the optical head changed provided the cost if effective. the unit has to be changed with precaution because any static damage to the new head can be serious. hence if you are not familiar get help to install the new head . Hope you try. Good day

The DVD-VCR unit won't accept any DVD - blank or with content. It says "LOAD" but then ejects the DVD. Same DVD works in an identical Samsung unit in another room.


You may have a dirty lens on the DVD read head. There are CD/DVD cleaning kits available at some drug stores and electronic stores. Do not get a "CD cleaning kit" (that only cleans the discs), get a "CD/DVD lens cleaning kit" (it will have a special CD and cleaning solution) for $10 to $20.
If that's not it the DVD illumination LED may be dead. If it still plays CDs, but won't play DVDs, that's the problem. There are separate LEDs for playing CDs and DVDs.
Either way, if the cleaning doesn't work, it has to be fixed in an electronics shop.

When trying to play DVDs the words unknown disc title appears. Even after several attempts with various DVDs we havent had any success.


have u tried cleaning the hea of ur dvd player?after using a dvd player or cd player for long times of continous play say 6 months or if u play too many scratched discs and u dont clean the head of the player it starts skipping the disc or many a times dosnt recognise the disc so it'll give u errors like "Unknown Disc", "Disk Error" etc so i would really recommend u to clean its head using a dvd head cleaner cd.. its easily available in the video stores or malls.. u can purchase any dvd head cleaner cuz there are number of manufatcures for this. im sure this would solve ur issue.
PLEASE DO RATE ME,WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE IT
THANX

Cannot Play Commercially Produced DVDs (Panasonic DMR-ES40V)


Dear FixYa Team,

Thanks for your inquiry re my problem.

Since I posted, I THINK I may have solved my problem. I unplugged the unit for an hour or so, plugged it in again, and it DID play a "commercial" DVD that I had tried earlier. I don't know if this is a permanent solution -- we'll see. If not, I'll take the next step in seeking some help.

Thanks again.

My in dash tv dont play dvd when the park brake is on


Sounds like it was wired backwards. The car in-dash receivers with video are suppose to be wired so that they will only play when the parking brake is on.

You should check your manual with your in-dash and find out how the parking brake sense wire is suppose to be wired, typically people just wire them with a switch to ground or +12V (CHECK MANUAL FOR WHICH ONE) and then flip the switch when they want it to play video; or they just wire it permanently to whatever is needed, but on some receivers that won't work because it checks for that.

I have a Ripspeed DVD-730B head unit for my car. its all installed but when trying to play a dvd it displays a message sayin: do not watch while driving and then only plays sound, no picture. how do i...


if the unit was installed with a handbrake lead properly it will only get picture with handbrake on,try taking that wire off and connect it to a permenant positive like the permanent live to the head unit,so the unit thinks the handbrake is on, or if it wasnt installed properly and that wire is somewhere else like a permenant negative then the unit thinks the handbrake is always off hence no picture while driving,hope this helps :-)
