Question about RCA RC5215P DVD Player

2 Answers

Disc Incompatible I've been having trouble with my player not playing dvds. I sometimes get a message that the disc is incompatible with the player or the disc plays and the picture breaks and skips. This happens weather the dvd is new or used. This is distressing especially if the disk is part of a set and all the others play. Would buying a lense cleaner disc help and also buying a repair kit that fix scratches on disc help? I've had this player since 2002. Should I just think about getting a new one?

    I got some good advice but I'm not sure what an IC no. is.

    The DVD player in my car all of a sudden gets stuck on "loading" for a few moments, then flashes "incorrect disc format". I have tried several DVDs.

If you've already cleaned the player with a good quality commercial DVD cleaning device then you have done just about all that a typical user can do short of taking it apart. I just had a real nice DVD player die last weekend and was surprised to be able to pickup a fairly decent DVD player/recorder for under $80. I also noted that a basic DVD player (they also play audio CDs) started at $30. Have you considered just tossing the old one and purchasing a new one?

When i put a dvd in my hitachi htdk185uk it says unknown disc what does this mean

Either a DVD with the wrong region code has been loaded, and your player doesn't recognise it, or you have inserted a disc which is either rewritable (or an incompatible format for your player), a blank DVD or CD, or the disc has not been finalised in a DVD recorder. It depends on the disc(s) you have, whether they are region coded or those using a compatible playback format (finalised DVD-Rs are the best as far as burned copies go).

Examples of incompatible formats for your player may include;
DVD-ROMs
DVD-RAMs (which are the wrong version/speed for your unit)
Mini-DVDs/CDs
CD-RWs
DVDs with a different region code to your player or rewritable discs

* When using shop-bought DVDs, including those purchased online, make sure their region code matches your player.

Blu-ray discs all of the sudden incompatible and won't play

Look for a firmware upgrade for your player. They exist for sole purpose of increasing compatibility with newer blu ray releases. If that does not do the trick it appears that your player's laser assembly is losing its ability to focus on the disk(s). Repair is not cost effective and you will have to go shopping.

Incompatible Disc in Sharp BD-HP21X Blu-Ray Disc Player

I had the exact same problem as you did... I bought the Sharp Aquos 42D85X which came with Sharp BD-HP21X Blu-ray Disc player. could not get brand new blu-ray movies to play and i found it froze everytime after 10 secs. I phoned sharp who basically were no help watsoever! I then went and returned my blu-ray movies back to the store thinking it was a problem with the discs.. The people there were extremely nice and since they had a display model of the BD-HP21X instore they offered to test the movie on it to veroify whether it was the blu-ray player was the problem or not. Turns out its a fault with all of the BD-HP21X models. So we then ended up returning it back to the store we bought it and exchanged it with the older model (BD-HP20X). I now have no problems playing blu-ray movies. Although another suggestion is to perhaps download the lastest firmware update & see if that resolves your issues.

Can not read disc

I mainly use my DVR to record TV shows on DVD-RAM discs (Panasonic brand or Maxell). I've had no problems with the DVD-RAM discs. However, today when I put a DVD-R disc in the recorder, I got an "Incompatible Disc" error message. I tried a second disc from the same set, and got the same message. I tried out some of the DVD-Rs that I recorded last year and I could read them. Tried a DVD-RAM. That was OK. So, I tried another DVD-R disc. That one is OK. I don't know if the problem is that these DVD-Rs are getting a little old (2 years??) or if the recorder is developing its own problems reading discs.
