Most DVDs won't play only shows blue screen w/question mark on dvd symbol
When I put a DVD in my daughter's player it goes to the blue loading screen makes a clicking noise and then shows a symbol of a DVD with a question mark over it. I ran a cleaning disc which did no good at all. SOme discs still play fine, it is not a disc issue as a brand new DVD had the same problem. Any ideas?

The only other thing you can try is to clean the lens manualy.. Ok first take off the top of the unit. Unplugged of course! On the left side facing the front where the disc drawer is, should be a small round disc. To the right of that will be a slider assy. with a small lens attached. Take a cotton swab, and dampen it with regular alcohol. In a swirling motion clean off the lens very lightly, easy does it now. Take the dry end and do the same thing. Now wait 2 to 3 minutes and plug in the unit and see if that helped. If it did great close it up and let the kids have a ball. if it did not help, Well im afraid there are other troubles that a servicer will need to do, but this unit most likly is not worth repairing. Good Luck

If its the red white and blue AV cable on both ends yes you can. If its a red white and blue AV on one end and a audio looking jack on the other end you can too. They sell all those cords at Radio shack or most electronic stores.
Not sure it's a solution, per se, but I discovered that my Matsui was acting as if I was opening and closing it, so I guessed that it was the lid. Once I put a paperweight on the "Press to Open" part of the lid, the DVD played through. I'm looking how to fix the lid but that's a workaround for now. Best of Luck - M
you allneed to make sure the disc is spinning in the player you should hear it whirr as ut builds speed listen closely to it and keep a hand on it to feel when the disk quits if it starts. its supposed to spin v ery fast do you think you could tell by the sound of it if its spinning fast. some times they make a clicking noise because the drive mounts have slid down in the case and allows the disk to rub or tap the case. please let me know what you find out. this is for all three problems. let me know the results so i can further advise you.
On most of the set top DVD players you use the monitor button or the remote control menu button to access the mode that flips the display (invert). The mode is for those who mount the units to the ceiling of a vehicle for rear passengers to view. You might have to have a DVD playing at the time or just loaded in the stop mode to access the feature.
