While trying to play a DVD on our JVC TH-A9 home theater system, on inserting a disc it did not start to spin and consequently disc did not read . When the " Now Reading " message ended the display changed to 0:00.
Any ideas as to what may be wrong?
I tried a CD and it also refused to spin etc.
the laser carriage moves and light is showing for laser but thats about all.

Re: Home theater won't start playing DVD
If a disc will not spin, A- the laser may not be focusing on the disc, as it must do this before it will spin and read the TOC. ( table of contents) B- you could have a fault in the spindle motor circuit or the motor could be bad. You will need to find an authorized servicer if you do not understand solid state repairs. Good Luck

In response to your jvc-a75r DVD player, sometimes the solution might be less complex than it may appear. Had the same problem with my Samsung s321,the machine refused to read DVD's but would play CD's no problem. Simply opened up the cover(usually)4-6 small screws, and found my dog's hair inside of the player covering the laser eye.Electrostatic ionization
attracts dust,etc. into the player remarkably well sometimes. Carefully used a cotton swap to remove debri. PLayerworked fine afterwards
The laser lens in your player might be dirty or failing.
Try the following solutions:
Clean the laser lens with a DVD player lense cleaning disc.
Lense cleaning discs are available at many electronics retail store.
Sorry i can't help you more.
