    machine tells me that there is a fault with the disc but there is not,they play fine on another player. Unlike the previous complainant, there had been a steady decline in the quality of the pictures being viewed over along but infrequently used period.

    My dvd worked fine. The next time I turned it on, jt keeps saying to reject the dvd.

    Nextplay machine suddenly won't recognize that a disc is inside. Dispays "Loading" while the spinning the disc. The disc will stop spinning in intervals of about 30 second, three or four times, then "No Disc" is displayed. No buttons will respond. Have tried at least five differest discs.

    dvd will not play

    Won't play DVD either. Plays the disc when it feels like it, the player always comes up with "wrong disc" on the TV screen. Not worth the aggrivation, will spend more next time.

I agree, no fix! We bought 3 nextplay 7" portables and with VERY little use 2 do not work (same problem) company absolutely NO help! These are junk!

Their is no solution, they are junky. Look at the unit, take it apart, you won't find a single label or anything regarding any sort of quality control during the manufacturing or assembly process.

Look at the box it came in, no mention of any kind of warranty whatsoever.

Hello there.

Push "Play/Pause" and "DVD Rec" on the dvd recorder a few seconds to see the service menu. There you can find your firmware version.

Post back the version for us.

DVD won't play

Netflix doesn't know what they're talking about. I looked it up - your DVD player doesn't have an autoplay feature. Can you try the DVD on another DVD player. Computers DVD drives generally read them differently - and decode them differently, than a regular DVD player. Also, if your DVD drive is a writable drive, it will have a stronger laser than your DVD player. I think it's likely the disk is damaged, slightly. If you cleaned your DVD's laser, it might be able to read it well enough to play - or it might not. I started having problems like this with a few of my own DVDs before my DVD player's laser went out. Basically it's a combination of laser quality and disc quality. If it remains just this one disk, I'd suggest leaving it alone. But if you start running into this problem on other disks as well, you'll probably want to have the laser replaced in your DVD player.

Hi camonk2004,

It's interesting that your DVD player was purchased in Russia but plays Region 1 DVDs. Region 1 is North America. Does your Player also play Russian DVDs (region 5)? If so, then it has probably been modified to play DVDs from multiple regions.

Check the back side of the DVD player - the rear panel should have a Region number on it. If the region number is 1, then try playing a Region 5 DVD. If it reads the DVD, then the modification that was done in Russia will probably allow it to read any DVD. IF the Region 5 DVD won't play (or if it is ejected automatically), then your player's region control os still intact, and it will only play DVDs from the same region as the one listed on the rear panel of the player (or DVDs marked "ALL").

I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Kind Regards,

No picture, only sounds when playing DVD


The issue might be that you could be missing some codes to play the dvds.

First i want to uninstall all the codecs from the control panel - add/remove programs.

Then download the latest vesion of klite codec pack with the player.

The link is :

Install this by selecting "lots of stuff" with the player.

Then play your DVD, it will work fine.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.
