DVD Player won't read

The DVD player won't read the DVD's. It started a while ago just not reading some and reading others. Now it won't read any & probably just needs the laser cleaned. I just would like to know which screws to remove to get at the inside chassis.

    Could you please go into a little more detail about encoding for the right region? Most of the DVDs are coming from Netflix.

    My DVD player has not worked since I bought it! I'm wondering if it even has a real DVD player inside. If anyone has advice on getting DVDs to play please let me know.



    Thank you

I have to disagree with the previous answer you got. It's a common scenario that someone uses his DVD player to play CD's and then the point is lost. DVD players DO get plagued with dusty lenses, same as any other disc player. If you can get to the lens its worth a try, but from your post it seems that you should take it to a pro lab. I say this because you'll have to open the TV chasis to get there, and TV's are just about the most dangerous home appliance to mess with. Touch the wrong spot, even when plugged out, and you can get bit by enough voltages to kill. Take care and good luck

It is very rare to have any problems related to dirty lenses, on DVD players. This is because the rotational speed of the disc is so high compared to CD, that a significant drag wind builds up under the disc, which keeps the lens blown clean of dust deposits. Your laser might be defective though. Also, make sure that the DVDs are encoded for the right region.

Can anyone give a response that let's the person actually open and try to fix it. Not just tell them not to and to take it to get repaired... If they wanted to do that, they wouldn't have written on here

There is something that you can do safely and it'll cost you just a few dollars, just go to any electronic store(Kmart, circuit city, office depot, best buy etc.) and buy a dvd laser lens cleaner and that might solve your problem. This way you don't have to open the TV chassis.

You didn't say whether the unit was shutting down. Usually when there is a fault in the VCR the TV shuts down to protect the unit. Your unit has a fault in the tape system. It has a bad sensor or something in it which is triggering a fault. Sometimes kids put things in the slot and cause this kind of problem. Using a flashlight look into the slot and see if there is an obstruction. If there is try to get it out. If you are capable and understand TV safety, unplug the set and remove the back to look for any foreign objects in the set. If there are no foreign objects you will probably have to have the set looked at by a shop if you want the VCR to work. If you have composite video and audio inputs on the unit you can hook up an external DVD player with an RCA patch cable. Hook the same colors together on each unit. Yellow for video, red and white for audio. You will have to select the input through the menu. Good luck.

I put in a dvd, it starts to read it, and in a couple of seconds it ejects

Hello; There are many laws and rules controlling what you can watch on all DVD players, built into a TV or separate player. If you go buy an MGM or other dvd of some movie at Walmart , Best Buy ETC it should play in your DVD player, But if You or somebody " Burned a DVD" , It Likely won't play. If The DVD is an original store copy and still won't play, the DVD chassis must be replaced. BIG BUCKS. Just buy a Cheap DVD player and plug into the jacks on the back of the TV and save a TON of money. John

When a disc is loaded, it reads "no disc".

Okay, so I had this problem a few days ago and started watching movies on my X-box 360. Then my X-Box came up with the same error as my DVD player. After reading countless reviews and e-mailing Samsung, I read somewhere that someone had pummeled their X-Box until it adjusted the laser back.

So, I pummeled my DVD and X-Box into oblivion and oddly enough both of them are working. Don't go crazy smacking it but give it some sturdy hits right above the CD tray as you are putting CD's in and opening the tray. Worked for me and hope it helps...
