Question about Zenith XBV243 DVD Player/VCR

Open Question

Unit accepts DVDs but will not play 90% of them

Unit accepts DVDs but on 90+% of them, will not play. Indicates "CHECK DISC". Have tried cleaning discs, changing Player Rating code to "1" or unlocked, Not sure HOW to change or modify Region code as some troubleshooting guides suggest. The SAME discs will play on our small "All-in-one" TV/VCR combo, which indicates the discs are not the problem. We have the same issue with an older Sharp brand VCR player in another room. Any suggestions? BC

Every DVD player has a reset function...it is just like rebooting your computer.
For my Samsung, it was to hold in the channel up and down buttons for 10-15 sec with the power on and the whole machine restarts.

Call your manufacturer support line and ask for this option.

It worked for me...Good luck

My JVC HR-XVC27U plays some DVDs but not others. They have the correct codes, but it seems to not play the newer DVDs like Toy Story 3


see the causes and remedies and fix it: God bless you
  1. No disc. - Load a disc into the tray.
  2. Disc has been loaded upside down. Place the disc with the label side up.
  3. Disc region code does not match region code of the player.
  4. Disc type is not the correct type to play.
  5. Disc is damaged or dirty. Clean the disc or try another.
  6. Moisture may be condensed inside the unit. Remove the disc and the leave the power on for one or two hours.

Panasonic BD35 won't play blu ray discs, but will play dvds


You may have come close to what the issue is---Blu Ray for several design reasons is much more critical than DVD---seen a lot with this issue----either a dirty or a failing optical pickup in the unit---I know as when first started seeing it in our shop changed a few and since under warranty found the answer--optical unit was the problem---shortly after that they started just exchanging the cheaper units.

later models didn't need the memory card to play DVDs.

My Sony DVP-NS57P dvd-cd player stopped playing dvds (haven't tried playing a CD). It displays ''Cannot play this disc''. When it first did this, I unplugged it and cleaned the disc and then it played but...


The messagin indicates that the unit recognizes the a DVD is present. Since it goes that far, it suggests that the information read from the disc is wrong. A dirty lens can cause this. Use a cotton swab as Welcomjee suggested dampened with alcohol. If that does not resolve the problem but a CD will play, then the optics are failing and need to be replaced.

Given the cost of replacement optics for your unit, if the optics are bad, replace the unit.
