New out of box GPX d2816 player, display on tv says "bad disc". Display on d2816 dvd player says" ddl SC. I put a dozen good video discs in unit and the same problem persists, "bad disc". Only thing the unit will do is turn off and on and open/close dvd door. TV display will say open/close and loading and then bad disc. Any help will be appreciated!!!
Hey i know what it is ...i had the same problem and i took the top off and found the whole carriage for the disc inside has slotted holes and is adjustable.i simply moved it around until it worked then tightened it into place.
hope that helps......
I have the same problem, and I am really disappointed in the product. I am a mommy, who knows absolutely nothing about electronics. I hope this solution works, needless to say though I will be waiting for my husband to disassemble it- before I make the product even more screwed up! Thank you for your suggestion, and I will let you know if it works!

I heve worked with so many DVD players including playstation2 a while back. Almost all the time this problem is caused by a bad laser diode assembly. You can order one for your particular model, but they are not easy to replace, even for an electronic guy like me. A mechanical talent is a must.
Either the lens is dirty or the optica are starting to fail. If you can gain acces to the optical assembly, try cleaning the lens carefully using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that fails to resolve the problem and you are able to read CDs but not DVDs, the optics are failing and need to be replaced.
A cable could cause this problem. I would try using a standard RCA patch cable and go from the composite video output of the DVD player to a composite video input of the TV. See if that produces color. If not, the DVD may be at fault. On the other hand, if you get normal color, the S-video cable could be bad.
1.- TURN ON THE DVD PLAYER 2.- PRESS OPEN/CLOSE 3.- PRESS THE FOLOWING NUMBERS 8888 4.- PRESS ENTER UNTIL SHOW "Region code: 9" (Region Free) 5.- PRESS OPEN/CLOSE
1-Turn on your DVD player. 2-Open the tray. 3-Press 9 five times, you will see a number (for me it was 6, you'll see it on the screen, where the DVD displays all messages, like a blue bar up top) then I pressed 9 a few more time until the number being displayed there turned to a 9, when it does then press enter, now it's region free.
