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.

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.
Had the same problem; here's what i did. Take DVD out of Receiver, close door to receiver and hold down stop button on receiver itself for five(5) seconds. changes should take effect and progressive scan screen should revert back to sanyo screen.
In DVD mode, Progressive Scan shows on screen. Just press the stop button on the front panel for about 5 - 10 seconds and it will go back to standard mode. I did the same thing tonight and I just tried pressing buttons
