You will be asked to set a password. Enter something simple and easy to remember, e.g. 0000 then press ENTER. You will need to confirm the password by entering the same number again, then press enter again.

Try 0000 - It's the default code for most brands unless you set a code yourself and you've forgotten it.

If not, also try 1234, 1111, 2222, 3333, 4444, etc.

Hope this helps,

You may need to get the discs repaired or it may be your laser in the player need cleaning. Easiest soloution is to basically clean your disc(playside). Check for scratches on both sides of your disc. If the label side is scratched in any way, it might be unrepairable as this is where the data is stored, if the playside is scratched they are repairable. You can try home remedies if the scratches are very slight, if not professional repair is required. Try other discs in your player, if they are not working either, then it may the players laser is dirty and may need a laser cleaner, fairly cheap in some stores.

If it's the disc thats scratched visit www.discREPAIR.ie for FAQs and futher help or disc repairs.

the reason the disc is jammed is because the player did not sit the disc properly.

what you will have to do is;
get a screw driver, open the dvd player, you will find a mechanism that presses the cd down to the lens, you unscrew it too and remove the disc that is jammed in it.

press open to see if it would open up, if it does, then you can screw it back together, but if it does not open then there is a fault with the mechanism that open and closes the player. so you carefully check it out and put it back in order and it would start working.

It depends on the model of player you have. For example, COBY has older models that won't play anything other than commercial DVDs. However, most new DVD players, and by new I mean ones that are no more than 12 months old, can play DVD +R and -R. To find this information, you need to consult the manual or contact the manufacturer about your specific model.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
