Hi, Its possible that dirt (even just dust) is blocking the eye (optical). You may need to seek the services of a qualified service professional since the unit has to be opened and the optical lens cleaned. Should you venture into doing it yourself, with the power of & unplug, remove the cover lid exposing the inside mechanism and electronics. A sliding bar near a black disc (spindle) would be holding the eye. You need to check/clean the said eye and make sure that no foreign object is on top. Even a speck of dust or a small fiver or hair would cause it to fail reading your DVDs. It is also possible that the sliding bar is stuck at the far end or near the center. Gently shake it loose if it is so. If this does not work, I guess you're back to the first suggestion. Hope this works out for you and give you some ideas. Pls post again how things work out and/or if you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

    Hi again Badjack,
    Based on your new post/description, there is no mechanical problem with your DVD player. One can try is to to go to the setup function via your remote and set your progressive scan mode or sometimes called PScan mode (causes the split screen/display) back to default or off or back to interlace. In your remote it is the bottom right button.
    You may have to consult the your manual for a more comprehensive instruction, It is likewise available online athttp://www.harmankardon.com/product_supp...
    Hope this works out for you. Good luck and pls post again how things turn up. Cheers.

When a DVD player starts doing that, it either needs to be cleaned, or something is going wrong with the DVD mechanism inside of it. You can purchase DVD lens cleaner from any large retail store that has an electronics section. However, if you clean it and the problem persists, it will likely be cheaper to replace the unit rather than trying to have it repaired unless you're under warranty in which case any repair or exchange will be covered by said warranty. If you call the manufacturer they will give you your full range of options.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please post a comment if you need additional assistance so that I can help you further.

My laptop wont play dvds!


One of two possibilities:

1. Your laptop does not have a DVD player installed. Check the bezel on the optical drive and see if it says DVD on it. If not, then it won't play DVDs.

2. The DVD player needs to be replaced as the DVD laser has gone bad.

OK. The movie industry strikes again! Your RENTED DVDs are the key.Hollywood made some adjustments to prevent the copying of the movies. So they put software to detect the kind of drives in which the movies are inserted. DVD/RW are capable of copying a movie, so they are disqualified as playing devices. Have it be a normal DVD player you won't be facing any troubles.

Picture sticks, breaks up repeatedly


Change the location of the unit, this sounds like an overheating problem. It is too close to other units or is enclosed in a tight space. You may also try putting a small fan behind it to cool it down.
