Today I put a cd in my HK DVD31 and started playing. After about 10-15 seconds it froze, no sound and the display showed the time the cd froze. I turned the DVD off and on again, still the same display message and no button other than the powerbutton is responding. I now plugged out he powerchord and when I plugged it in and restarted the dvd everything is black except from the blue light by the "on" button. Still no other button is responding and I can't get my cd out either. Is there someting I can do?
I'm having the same problem viewing DVD+RW discs. the DVD plays for a while then freezes. I've seen plenty of bad advice on this topics. Most people say "your laser is weak / dirty" and that is ****. A weak laser won't freeze your whole player, and BTW, what standard are people using to comapre weak lasers to strong ones? And really, does the inside of your player get that dirty?
The problem of the whole player freezing up like you mentioned is a manufacturer defect for the player. You should return the product for a replacement. They will give you hassle about it, but stay strong!
To get your disc out, there should be a small pinhole by the tray. Poke an unbent paper clip in there to unlock the tray and then slide it out. You should be able to retrieve your disc.
Good luck with the repair department. - dave
Try another dvd if the same your laser pick-up is defective . You could try a cleaner ,but in most cases if this works it is only temporary. Unfortunately the laser in all likelyhood will have to be replaced. Can be expencesive .

Sound like it either has one or two problems, the door is stuck and or the door eject motor has failed. Look in the front to the player for a small paperclip like hole, and use a paper clip to manual eject the and engage the loading mechanism usually located under the door for most cases. Check you manuals troubleshooting section for manually ejecting a CD..
I have an HK AVR140 all of the displays work, even shows when a digital connection from the Blu-Ray player is connected but no audio comes from the speakers! I found some information that HK does not have DC protection so when there is a problem muting Circuit is initiated on the main Amp. I called HK and they want me to send it in to a service dept that is not close at all. Any ideas? Or is there a way to by-pass the muting circuit somehow?
The funny thing about dvd players is they just stop functioning after awhile. I've had mine for 2 years now (4 players before that), and that's a personal record. On the flipside I have a sony dvd burner that won't read CD's!
Really the only thing i can suggest is updating the firmware via cd if it supports it (if you give me your make and model # i can check on it). I would also try different DVD's- like ones that you know used to play. Some newer ones have really aggressive anti-piracy garbage that will keep older players from playing them.
I have come across one DVR-S120 that has a shorted spindle motor. This is the motor that spins the disk. Therefor the unit will not play a cd or dvd. Yamaha sale's the complete dvd Assy. for $300 witch is absurd.
The thing is...I can't get the tray to open either. So trying a different one is impossible at the moment.
i turned my dvd player on and put a dvd into it. after the dvd went in there was no display and i couldn't get the dvd out. it was like it didn't have any power so i unplugged it and plugged it into a different outlet still no display and no dvd.
