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.

Re: Dwm-3900 wont play dvd's
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.

yes unfortunately your laser isnt reading for 1 of 3 reasons, dirty fingerprints etc on the disc, the laser is dirty,dusty or the laser is weak..clean the disc and or laser if still ng the laser is defective
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".

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.
TThe player does not play this type of dvd disk! only pre-recorded movies and CDs Try hooking Up a player that plays DVD+ and DVD- disks!Hope I was of help!

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.
