Its on but won't start playing. Also keeps saying no disc

It is broken. It would be MUCH cheaper to REPLACE it than to try to get a qualified technician to TRY to repair it.

I put a disc in my sanyo DWM 400 and the doorwont open to eject it or get it out.

Have you tried unplugging the player, waiting a few seconds and then plugging it back in? Sometimes that works.

Says "No Disc"

If you have put a dvd disk in your dvd player, and it says "no disc" then try cleaning it with a dvd cleaning disk. It could be that the eye of your dvd player is dirty. You can get a dvd cleaner at any department store.

If you have put a dvd disk in your dvd player and its a home made or "burnt" disk and your player says "no disc", it usually means that the disk is the wrong format to be played on your dvd player. Try another disk.

If you have not put any disk in your dvd player, and it says "no disc" its just telling you that there is no dvd inserted for it to play.

How do u hook up

If you have HD TV it is best to hook up the DVD player separately.

The easiest way to connect your DVD player with your TV, is to find the cable going from the receiver to the TV and disconnect it from the TV.
Connect this cable to the back of the DVD player where it says "in" or "input".
Next take another cable and connect it from the DVD player output to the TV. Once you've done this make sure your TV set is tuned to the proper input or source. Your DVD's should play when the receiver is off, however, you'll probably need your DVD player on to get the DISH signal.

I put DVD in player. It will spin but won't read

Dear mgunwall, If dust particles are sticking to the DVD surface, use a piece of soft cloth to wipe off the dust. To hold the DVD, insert a finger or thumb inside the center hole of the DVD or handle it by the edges but never touch the shiny surface. If the DVD surface feels sticky or greasy, mix some baby shampoo in lukewarm water and use cotton or soft cloth to gently rub the DVD surface with this solution. Make sure the DVD is completely dry (no water drops) before putting it back in the player. If you notice a scratch on the surface of a CD or DVD, I would suggest that you immediately make a copy of the disc (if it's not copyrighted). If none of the above work, try cleaning the lens of the DVD player by using a CD laser lens clear CD like this: http://www.comparestoreprices.co.uk/images/ha/hama-cd-and-dvd-laser-lens-cleaning-disc--ref-11434.jpg
Good luck!

Disk drawer does not open

Hi.

Try disconnecting power. Connect back and then turn the DVD on by using the button in the player (not the remote) while at the same time you keep pressing repeatedly the eject button on the player. You will need to keep pressing eject until the unit start loading the disk.

If that does not work, then the DVD must be disassembled undoing the screws holding the top cover in the chassis.Once disassembled there is usually a disk stuck inside the drive or a mechanical issue. The disk tray motor rarely fails.

Here the service manual showing disassembling and repair procedures:sanyo_dwm400 .pdf

Do not disassemble the player unless you have repair experience. Before proceeding check warranty status.Call Sanyo if you want to book a repair:SANYO :: Contact.

Regards.

Ginko.

The disk drawer does not open

Try pressing repeatedly the eject button while you turn on the unit. If it does not work
then it is a mechanically problem in your player.

You need to open the dvd player manually .

The rubber thread which should be connected to the motor inside the DVD player might have moved from its place.
You need to place the rubber thread to proper place.
If you still face the problem then you need to replace spindle motor.


Hope this helps.

DVD JUST SPINS IN PLAYER

Its probably becouse the laser that reads the DVD is dirty or damaged. I had the same problem with my DVD player. I bought a DVD laser cleaning disc ( it looks just like s DVD movie, but has a little brush on it), played the disc and the problem was gone.

How do i open the

It sounds like you might have taken a power surge and it has scrambled the processor ic, the only option I can offer is unplug the power cord from the receptical in the wall and let player sit for at least 30 minutes or more, this should reset the ic. If this fails I recommend replacing the unit, because it will cost far more to repair.

My dvm400 says no discs.

Try cd for music, if that works there is hope to get the circuits hot enough to drive out the moisture on the semiconductors. Otherwise try using a fan to blow on the dvd player(more than 2 hours) to dry it out. Then try cd, then try dvd?
