Re: TV says WRONG DISC TYPE
Is the dvd a store bought disc or a burnt dvd? If the disc is a store bought disc I unfortunately can't help you. But if the dvd you are trying to play is burned from dvd burner you are most likely using the wrong type of burnable dvd.
There are two types of dvd's you can burn, DVD-R and DVD+R. You need to make sure which one you dvd player can play, some play one or the other, some play both. I have also heard of some older ones that can't play any type of burned disc.
Hope that helps

Now u put in a DVD movie disc into the DVD player slot.The DVD disc still register on the tv LCD screen,but just don't read the DVD disc?Yes.Tries websites like Amazon.com,Ebay.com to buy a DVD cleaning disc kit to used to clean the DVD laser eye of the DVD player slot,after this it should work.If tv still have the same result,than this tv problems DVD player slot can't be fix or worth fixing because the DVD player slot laser eye is bad or dead alredy.
If the disc loads up and you can hear it spin, then you get the error, more than likely the optical lens has been damaged. This will have to be repaired by a local shop if its worth the cost. if the part is available it would probably run anywhere from 130-165 to repair
This is a common problem for all combo units. The high voltage of the TV section attracts large amounts of particulate dust from the air and often it collects inside the DVD unit. The best way to deal with this is to clean the lens of the DVD unit u sing a cotton swab and alcohol. The store bought "cleaners" MAY work, but that is rare. These cleaners are nothing but small brushes embedded into a disc. They attempt to brush off hte dust. This rarely works. Open up the unit (if you feel comfortabel in doing so) to access the DVD section. Remove the top cover and carefully clean the lens. That should resolve the problem.
