Try playing Different DVDs, Second Make sure which Region Disk your playing is it Region 1 or Region 2, If your DVD player is Manufactured in USA it plays only Region 1, If its manufactured in UK it plays only Region 2, If still you face same problem Use Lens Cleaner, If still you face same problem do Reset.
To Reset Dvd player, Remove DVD from Dvd Player, Unplug Power chord from Walloulet for 15minutes so player goes to Defult Factor Settings, Then plug back again Power chord. Turn on Dvd player insert DVD, It should Play or else Claim Warranty.

Dvd stuck in the dvd / tv

I had this same problem and fixed it too. It was from a flat torsion spring on the loading mechanism that had moved position. It hits against the chassis of the DVD housing preventing the mechanism from seating the disk on the spindle. Result is a stuck disk and/or constantly running loading motor.

Remove the one black machine screw behind the DVD player. DVD player will slide out of TV with its black plastic trim fascia from bay.

Remove two screws that hold fascia panel, remove fascia and lift off top metal cover.

With CD loading slot facing you, the problem spring (in our situation) was at the left. Also identical spring on the right side too. These are the two torsion springs near the front on sides of chassis. The helical loop on the left should be towards the top. If it shifted to the bottom, it can hit the tab with screw used to secure DVD chassis. When this happens, CD loading mech can't complete loading disk onto the spindle. If spring flips when the CD is on the spindle.... disk can't eject.

I used a pair of tweezers to gently grab the spring and "flip" it upwards by pulling it upwards. Spring will work for mechanism in up or down position, but needs to be up to avoid interence.

Solved my problem and DVD has been great since. If it flips back for some reason, then I will try attaching a small piece of plastic to the side of the chassis to contain spring in upright position only.

Denon 2910 CD player malfunctions

By this time I figure most peoples warranties are expired. So give this a try:

1 Open the case.
2 Turn the unit on and load a disk.
3 On top of the disk transport, you will see a black disk trying to spin as it reads the disk. You might notice that it is a bit quite as the display goes to 00H00M00S. It should be fast and a bit noisy.
4 Try loading a disk again, except this time, try to help that little black disk spin. It might take a couple of attempts, but I was able to get my 2910 working again.

The last year I've had to do this 2-3 times. But it works. From what little I have read, it may just be an issue with lubricating the right part with the right oil. I've narrowed my choices to PTFE 3n1 oil, Lithium oil, or silicone oil.

now I just need to find the right places to oil.

There should be quite a bit of noise and speed

No disc error showing up-takes 20 tries to bring up dvd

Maybe the laser is unable to focus on the smaller pits and lands of a DVD disk but can see the relatively large pits and lands from a CD just fine. This may be solved by using a CD/DVD cleaner disk. It's a disk with small brushes on it that attempt to brush dust from the laser's lense. They don't always work but that's what I'd try.

The laser has become damaged/worn-out. There is no fix for it as replacement parts are not made for it.
