    Mine has done that since the day I bought it. Does anyone answer these or is it just a place for the poor suckers that bought this piece of junk to complain?

Mine did the same thing for any media, DVDs or CDs. I took off the cover and when it started to spin which was very slowly, i took my finger and spun it fast and viola, it works fine. So i would assume that the motor is not putting out enough to spin from a dead still.

Because you have limited knowledge of your products history, first ensure that your Country Code is set correctly. Using your remote, access your User Menu/Setup > Country Code > U S > Memory > Setup. I am assuming that you are in the US, and are trying to view Region 1 DVD's. Please update for further instructions if the above doesn't solve your problem....good luck.

Dvd sometimes reads error


If this problem occurs only at this dvd it's a disk problem. If it occurs on various disks try using a cd/dvd cleaner set, a wet one is better. Follow the instructions on the set. The main idea is to put one drip of the included liquid at the set (usually isopropyl alchohol) at a specific place (like small brush) on the disk surface and play this disk. That way the "brush" will clean up the laser lens and after that the cd/dvd player will be able to read the disks. BE CAREFULL not to put too much liquid on the "brush".

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs".

No disk


The first thing to try is to run a "DVD" "CD" Player cleaner thru it, preferrably one that uses fluid. Run it thru a couple of times then try another disc. That's really all you can do. Manufacturers do not "repair" Players, it's too time intensive and cost prohibitive. They just swap out the existing transport in the unit for a new one. Price range from 100-150 on average. Hope this helps. If you still have a problem, reply as to what area of the country you are in and I can find service center near you.

Does not read cd or dvs


Could be many things. But it probably needs a new pick-up (laser). You can try cleaning it with rubbing alcohol on a cotton swab.

My Sanyo DWM-400 plays some DVD's and won't play others.


I bought another DVD player. I found out that all DVD's don't play on all DVD brands of players. They are cheap enough these days so I decided it wasn't worth a repair bill. The Sanyo DWM-400 plays many of my store bought DVD's and not others. I never tried a home made DVD in it so I don't know how it responds.

This is an indication that the optics are either dirty or failing. Carefully open up the unit and clean the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. That should resolve the problem. If not, try playing a music CD. If the CD plays but a DVD does not, the optics are failing and need to be replaced.
