DVD 10 I have a HK DVD 10 DVD Player. It no longer plays dvd's, it sticks on 'Reading'. After a while it comes back and says DVD incompatible, regardless of what DVD I play. I have tried it with DVD's that I own and that I have played in the player numerous times in the past. It does however continue to play music CD's. Any idea's? David

    1. My polaroid portable DVD player doesn't recognize some DVDs and VCDs. It is able to play some discs but after a while, it gets stucked, sometimes it says bad disk at the time of loading.

    if i use lens cleaning CD will it clean DVD player's lens too?



    2. Also, combo drive of my PC is able to recognize only brand new authentic CDs. The CD that i have written on PC are not recognized by my drive. And when i try to write new CDs on this drive it starts and gets stuck on 2-3% (using NERO). Please help.

It either needs some cleaning to the lens, or it might be that the player can't make the switch to read DVD's. It's my understanding that the laser has to change it's characteristics depending on the media it's reading. I believe what the drive does is try different laser settings (such as beam size, and intensity) until it can read the media. Your player might have a fault with this feature. If opening the player chasis and brushing dust of the lens doesn't fix it, you should take it to a decent lab to get an estimate for repair. It might be minor, as some further cleaning, or it might be more critical, parts replaced etc. Good luck

Why does my Seiki DVD player say incompatible region?

It's possible that the DVD you are trying to play was manufactured for a different region than the one your DVD player is set to. DVD players are designed to play DVDs that are encoded for a specific region or regions. For example, a DVD player that is set to Region 1 will only play DVDs that are encoded for Region 1.
You can check the region code of your DVD player by looking at the back of the player or consulting the user manual. You can also check the region code of the DVD you are trying to play by looking at the back of the DVD case or consulting the information that came with the DVD.
If the region code of your DVD player does not match the region code of the DVD you are trying to play, you will see an error message like the one you described. One solution is to try setting your DVD player to a different region and trying to play the DVD again. However, keep in mind that most DVD players can only be set to a particular region a limited number of times, and once the limit has been reached, the region code can no longer be changed.
It's also worth noting that some DVDs are encoded for multiple regions and will play on any DVD player, regardless of the region code. If you have a DVD that is encoded for multiple regions and it is not playing on your DVD player, there may be another issue at play.

Iview 2600hd dvd player has error "this player is incompatible with the region marking of this disc"

DVDs are coded for different areas of the world. If you bought the DVD from an online source it may not play on your format of DVD player.

Will not read disc

As it's less than a year old the manufacturer's warranty should still apply.

Your player probably has a failed laser head unit; if you have to pay to fix this fault then you'd be better off just chucking it away and buying a replacement as it will be cheaper.

Blu-ray discs all of the sudden incompatible and won't play

Look for a firmware upgrade for your player. They exist for sole purpose of increasing compatibility with newer blu ray releases. If that does not do the trick it appears that your player's laser assembly is losing its ability to focus on the disk(s). Repair is not cost effective and you will have to go shopping.

DVD player and receiver will not play a dvd in surround sound ?

The dvd player is responsible for reading the surround sound track, and sending it to the receiver. First make sure you are playing the surround sound track on the dvd, many have a stereo track too. Next, try another dvd and see if you can play surround sound on that one. If you can't play surround on ANY dvd I would start looking at the audio connection from dvd to receiver. Are you using an optical cable? Red, white, and yellow RCA cables? Optical will transmit any sound over only one cable, RCA cables need one cable for each channel (LF, C, RF, LR, RR, sub.) If your connections are correct, is the receiver set to play a surround sound track? Is it set in 2 channel mode?

WHAT DVD DISCS WILL PLAY ON THIS DVD PLAYER

Assuming you are not having an actual hardware problem with the DVD player or an incompatible format (e.g. HD video & non-HD player); you should know that when you write video to DVD-R or DVD+R discs, you have to 'finalize' the discs on the creating drive for them to be playable on a regular DVD player. (Note a finalized disc can no longer be written to. If the player can read DVD-Ram (and your creating drive can write to them), DVD-Ram discs do not need to be finalized.)

Dvd player says "no disc"

Could a foreign object have been inserted into the tray? I have seen labels peel off and stick inside the mechanism, preventing it from reading the DVD. Also try unplugging it from the wall, let it sit for a few minutes (for the logic circuits to reset) then plug back in. Just turning it off does not reset the logic...
