Ok...I'm tired of buying new electronics because everything is throw away-junk. I want to be able to fix it myself. Hope you can help.
As with many problems that I have seen here my DVD-R130 will not recognize any DVD. The funny thing is that if I let it sit for a while somtimes it will play a movie. I am referring only to purchased DVDs nothing that I have recorded.
Any help will be appreciated. BTW, I have 2 other cheap players that do the same thing.
I had the same problem and after reading and trying allot of disks I found the following to work.
Maxell - RW disk. Did a complete format on my computer (takes a while).
Burned a DVD using Vista DVD burner with only a Jpg as per one of the
other posts. Once the disk plays. Stop and goto disk management and
format using DVD-V (VR did not work).
I know its not pretty but at least its better than throwing it in the garbage bin.

Someone with electronic troubleshooting experience will need to look at it. You might spend as much to fix it as buy a new one. Don't throw it away, someone will buy it like that on eBay or Craigslist. Sell it "as-is", disclose " will not power on".
Hello K4, hi you can manually get the disk out, but you need to remove the cover. As for the power thing, you have a power supply problem, would you like to service it yourself or call a technician, If you will service it yourself, this are the things you should check:
shorted or over heating rectifier diodes and voltage regulator
bulging filter capacitors
Switching regulator IC, check for the output pulse using a scope.
The player uses a different laser to read dvd's in respect to cd's. Either there's dust on the laser (or lens) and it needs cleaning or the dvd laser unit is busted - it can't be fixed, junk it and buy a new one.
Throw it away an buy a new one. WalMart's dvd's and all their electronics stuff are produced in china without any quality control and from the cheapest components. They aren't even worth repair. Buy a branded DVD (SAMSUNG, Sony) to avoid future problems.
