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

no, your dvd drive has gone bad. to check if it is working or not your try to manually open the content of the cd and try copy on the hard drive. if it copies fine then the cd is good if not cd is bad. you might get a error message of bad sector or data randomization. if it does not open at all the cd drive is bad.

This is a work-around rather than a solution. We put an audio CD in the tray and after closing the tray the unit begins to play the music. After waiting a few seconds we open the tray and quickly substitute a DVD and it loads OK. We had also tried cleaning the player to no avail. The CD approach is a pain but it does allow us to play DVDs. Jim
Try playing Different DVDs, Second Make sure which Region Disk your playing is it Region 1 or Region 2, If your DVD player is Manufactured in USA it plays only Region 1, If its manufactured in UK it plays only Region 2, If still you face same problem Use Lens Cleaner, If still you face same problem do Reset. To Reset Dvd player, Remove DVD from Dvd Player, Unplug Power chord from Walloulet for 15minutes so player goes to Defult Factor Settings, Then plug back again Power chord. Turn on Dvd player insert DVD, It should Play or else Claim Warranty.
