Where did u bought this DVD player?US,Canada,and Mexico?The DVD disc. used NTSC region format.Asia,Europe,Africa,and the Middle East.The DVD disc. used PAL region format.They can't be mix or it will not play as u find out.If u move in and out to another region of the world.U must have a regions free DVD player to play either NTSC or PAL regions.
Put a cd in the dvd player if it is marked that it plays cds... if it plays the cd your dvd laser is shot... cheaper to get a new unit. if it doesn't play a cd try cleaning the laser. and last but not the last thing try unplugging it for a short time then plug it back in... if nothing works get the one tool that fixs most everything...... take it to office depot and they can recycle the stuff inside and help keep the earth green...then onto wally world.
Fixed it! I got a new laser/optical pickup (SF-HD65) and replaced the old one. Replacing it wasn't too hard, just a little fiddly. Once it got it all back together, I fired up the unit with the case open and could easily see the red glow of the laser through the spinning disk. This didn't happen with the old pickup. Every disk I put in (originals and burnt stuff) was detected.
Even though the new laser worked, I can't be 100% sure the 24 pin ribbon cable / flat flex cable (ffc) connecting the laser to the mainboard isn't dodgy (I didn't try the old laser again). It's very flimsy and I may have somehow managed to re-seat the connectors better or bend the cable enough to make a contact over a break. If I get the "no disc" error again I'll replace that with the same or similar. For all out there it has the following written on it Kotobo E188165 AWM 20798 80C 60V VW-1. It's about 25 cm long, has 24 pins.
Regardless, I'm happy I didn't send the player to landfill. For $15 + shipping, replacing the optical pickup was cheaper than buying a new player that plays as many formats. T1mb0
