The DVD player on my home theatre stopped working. It only says "reading" and nothing else happens. We got the 3 discs out, thinking it was a disc that went in wrong somehow..but is not working. I don't know a thing about these things, have not used this very much, just went to play a disc, from the main unit not the remote, and this all happened. Can you help me? It is out of warranty now, of course. Thanx...your time and help is greatly appreciated...sincerely...Leeann Miller

Re: Stopped playing discs
Leeann Have you tryed to clean the lens yet with a lens cleaning disc? If not invest in one as it may be your problem as dirt and dust does collect on the lens if its not used all that often or worse yet a film on the lens will stop it from reading the disc. Since you did already say you knew nothing about these things then thats where your troubleshooting stops, If it dosent correct the problem with a cleaning. Now its time to call JVC to see where the best and closest servicer are located Sorry couldnt help ya more But theres a limited amount a consumer can do these days as these units have no user serviceable parts inside and best to be done by a pro Good Luck.

REstart the system and reinstall the DVD Player program that let the DVD Play.
maybe the DVD disc is required some codecs to play. try another player such as VLC player, or install the DVD player provided in your laptop DVD Rom. You can search and Download VLC player for free just search in google.

From the manual: Press STANDBY/ON to put the system in standby, then press and hold the front panel (stop) button for about 8 seconds until the display shows Mem.clr?. Press the front panel I<<<< or the >>>>I button so that the display shows Interlace?. Press the front panel >/II button to set to interlace & switch the system back on.
Some models of PIONEER cd players had radio frequency problems that caused them to work on and off. Are you near any radio or braodcast towers? Poorly shielded power supplies cause this as well. A weak laser diode in the pick-up assembly in model runs could be the problem. You might want to Google the model number and see if this is common for these units.
