When I insert a DVD into the player it starts reading the disc and after quite some time it displays a question mark (?) in the same area where it displays Reading. the LED indicator near the door starts changing colours from green to red and red to green. Can anyone please help me in this matter. Most disgusted with this player.
The power supply is probably bad and needs repair. Check the 5 volt output for the correct voltage and look for swollen leaky capacitors that need replaced. If the P/S is badly burned you'll have to replace it. Also, they don't last long so if you have used it a lot for a year or more the laser & motors are probably worn out and the ribbon cable connecting the laser carriage may be broken at the end. The ribbon cable can be replaced but there's nothing you can do for the motors or the laser.

dvd player keeps saying no disc when I try to play a dvd.what can i do? worked fine until about 3 months ago. started to say no disc when disc inserted but after opening and closing 3 to 6 times it would read.now it just wont read. any ideas?
The way i fix this, and mine does it quite often, is to either unplug it from the wall outlet and let it stand or a minute or two, or with the unit off, open the tray and close it, and it will recognise the disc then.
Reset you player by doing the following:
With the player on, hooked properly to your television, and on the correct station:
Open the tray
Close the tray (with no DVD inserted)
Hold the stop button down for a full 5 seconds
The CyberHome screen should appear. You should be able to play your dvd's now.
are they bootleg dvd's? if not try getting a lense cleaner because wrong disc means it's reading your dvd's as .mov files which only play on quicktime in a computer. if it reads your cleaner as wrong disk too then get yourself a refund cuz it has a motherboard malfunction.
