It may be that you just need to get a cleaner for the DVD player (disc with like little brushes on it). They are not expensive and have worked well for me in the past when my kids have done the same thing as your little brother.

Try unplugging the unit for a few seconds, plug it back in and try it. It may also be dirty and need a service.

Disc error "playback feature may not be available on this disc"


Hello arnita2211,

This error message is due to an improper format, that your dvd player can't handle. To correct this you need to use a program such as nero and in nero is a program called nero vision, that will recode the movie file into a dvd playable format.

You can download a trial of nero here
http://www.nero.com/enu/downloads-nero9-trial.php
You will have to purchase a license when the trial ends. Sorry we cannot give you a serial key for this as it is Illegal.

Thank you for trying Fixya!

the message you are getting is the machines waay of telling you that it can not read that disc. which means you will have to burn your discs in a different format. or your are using a type of disc it does not recognize.

Disc error "playback feature may not be available on this disc"


I have a DVD and VHS player in 1 and it was working well then all of a sudden the DVD player part just stopped playing. I stick in a disk and then it would read: disk error play back feature may not be available on this disk. And this disk is fine it plays in my daughters room in her 2 in 1 player. so What can I do? The VHS player works well. Help! I dont really want to buy a new one!

Disc error


It is possible that there is some dirt on the laser lens. With great care the laser lens can be cleaned.

If cleaning the laser lens does not fix it, there is the possibility that the laser unit and or its assembly, or the related electronics has a fault.

I can't get my dvd to load


Do you get this error with every disc, or with a specific one? could it be possible that the discs in question have certain features on them that can't be used with your player? such as audio tracks,subs, angles etc? If you're burning discs, always do so in 2x or 4x, turn off all other programs while ripping/burning. Try other discs and post back if you have any more info
