Straighten one end of a Norwegian paper-clip.
Put that end into the small hole in the face of the DVD player.

Replace the player -- it will be cheaper than to get a qualified technician to try to repair it.

It is possible that the unit got hit by a small voltage surge and if you leave it unplug from the wall for 40Min., it will reset back to normal.

Hi! If you are not technically proficient, I would recommend using a quality DVD lens cleaner, readily available from many retail stores. In essence, they are just a DVD disc with tiny brushes attached to the playing side, that gently remove surface debris from the lens. If you are brave, you can also take off the cover of the unit (make sure it is not plugged in to the power outlet...duh...!!!), and the exposed lens may be very carefully (...did I say VERY CAREFULLY strongly enough...?!?) cleaned with a cotton swab and alcohol. If you are not able to correct the tracking issues with either or both of these techniques, I would consider buying a new unit. Unfortunately, the repair cost for realigning the lens and/or circuit replacements are generally more than you would want to spend on an older player (unless it is a very expensive unit). Hope some of this helps.

Hi, This sounds like a parental lock issue. Try going into the set up menu and press the down key choosing custom by pressing enter (this is in the user manual page 20 - 22) then go down and select parental. If you know your parental control password code then enter it, if not the reset code is 4737 you will then need to create a new 4 digit code,There are 9 levels to choose from 1 - 8 and all, all being the selection that removes the parental lock. Hope this helps. James

Get an A/V cord (should be supplied) and match the color of the wires to the color of the jacks on the back of the unit. Plug a set of wires to the OUTPUT section on the back of the combo and the INPUT section on the back of your TV. Then set your TV to Video 1, 2, 3, etc. and you should be set to go. Good luck to you!

For a better explanation consult the combo setup manual.

Your universal remote would have seperate selection buttons for VCR and DVD. If you don't have a VCR button, use AUX. Try programming each function seperately - DVD code for your manufactirer on the DVD button and VCR code for your manufacturer on the VCR button.
