Read the owner's manual for your DVD player. Some brands (cheaper ones) are particular on the type of DVD to use (i.e. + or - DVD..). Most will NOT play a rewriteable (DVD-RW) disc.
I had a COLBY (WalMart) and it would only read DVD+R discs...
Did you make the disk if you made the disk your computer has to give it a digital signature so the DVD player can read it if you're using a regular DVD then I would very carefully using rubbing alcohol and Q tip clean the actual laser I would be very careful doing this if too much rubbing alcohol is on the Q tip it will ruin the laser you can also try resetting the DVD player by taking out the battery and unplugging it from any power source and leave it that way for at least 20 seconds to a minute if that doesn't work you might have something else wrong
Check and see if there is dust or dirt or something on the lens. Dirt, grease and fingerprints will cause a DVD player to have read errors. If it a new player, or under warranty, get it replaced. It sounds like it is failing.
Power up, no disk in. Status says READ then INSERT DISC.
Press MENU (status reads invalid key icon)
Press 1 (status reads invalid key icon)
Press 9 Menu is displayed.
Press ENTER on the region, digit turns to "-"
Press ENTER again
Press EJECT to clear the special menu.
PS If you're gagging to get at this and the remote doesn't work,
pull out the tab that isolates the supplied button cell in the remote
Region 1 NTSC
Region 2 PAL
