DVD PLAYER TROUBLES

I have had this DVD player for two years now and it worked fine until last summer. The issue is that it constantly says open and I hear no movement in the motor which reads the disc. I dont wanna buy another one if this one can be fixed. What is causing the player to display the "open" even when lid is closed completely?

Hello, There are really only things that can cause that problem, either the microswitch inside has failed which tells the processor that the drawer has closed, or the processor itself has failed. If you have some experience working on electronics, you can open the unit and see if the drawer is contacting the switch, and if so meter the switch to see if it has gone bad, otherwise, I would recommend replacing it, as you can do some home laser surgery to yourself if you open the unit and look at the laser. We have bought Durabrand sold at Walmart, it is normally not expensive to replace, and actually going by the one I bought my son, it has held up well. Good luck, I hope the info helps.

I have an 11 year old Toshiba DVD player. The last 2 times I rented a disk I had problems. Everything seems to be fine through the previews. When the movie starts to play, the screen goes green. The audio...


This is usually an issue with the component cables running to the TV. Remove the cables and retry with different component cables. If this doesn't fix the issue, its a problem with the DVD player itself.

As far as DVD players go, you've done quite well keeping yours going for 11 years. A cheap DVD player at the local big box electronics store here costs about $30, definitely not breaking the bank getting a new one.

Does the player ask for a password?
If it does look in the manual or contact Philips on their website.
This helped me a lot once.

Non bose dvd player for bose system


In short, you can. I did it last night. My Bose 321 DVD player is junk and it's always been junk, but I love the sound sytem. Last night, after the thing gobbled it's last DVD, I went through the whole, unplug, wait 5 minutes, plug back in, etc. and it still wouldn't eject so I ripped the DVD tray out of the thing with a pair of pliers, recovered my DVD, and slammed the tray back in, stripping all the gears and screwing up the motor in the process.
BUT, I disconnected the video cable from my Bose and plugged it into the video out on my el-cheapo Tru-Tech $99 DVD recorder. Then I ran the audio out cables from the Tru-Tech to the Aux 1 inputs on my Bose 321.
When I want to watch a DVD now, I put the DVD in my Tru-Tech, turn on the Bose, switch it to Aux 1, and I get a great picture and the Bose sound. Best of all, I don't have to plug and unplug that sorry Bose system everytime the wind blows.
They used the absolute cheapest DVD player they could get their hands on--a Toshiba model--for all the Bose 321 older models. Every single person who bought one has had these same troubles and they've made no offer to fix them.
This was my first and last Bose because of that and I hope more people stay away from Bose until they get their act together and protect their customers. $1000 for a system that eats DVDs like M&M's is ridiculous.

DVD Problem


Call Bose and they will send you an update CD to update the firmware of the CD/DVD player. I had a problem where a few of my new movies would not play at all. They sent me an update, no more issues. If you're a registered owner, they will send update CDs frequently, be sure you're registered as well.

Insignia DVD/Cassette combo player


I imagine you have checked the disk for scratches top and bottom, if so you can purchase a cd/dvd lens cleaner cdrom as the laser may need realigning and cleaning.
