Re: rotel dvd player not reading dvd but will read cd
If it doesnt read any kind of dvd discs at all it only means you have been rip off. It happened to my sony dvd player that I bought from this website. I tested it and it only reads cd or audio cd. Good thing my couzin fixes electronics, He checked on the lens and it turned out that the lens has been replaced with an audio/cd lens like the one we use for our car stereo. Too bad!!!

It may be that itis not set up to read burnt CD's. I have a Rotel DVD but it won't play burntCD's. This is due to the fact that burnt CD's are missing some headerinformation that regular CD's have. Here are some further steps to check
Try a different cd if the player won't read any CD or DVD then there is most likely a problem with the actual reading hardware. If under warranty HP should replace, if not can take to a repair shop or purchase a replacement unit. Another thing to try would be looking for a reset to default options in one of the configuration menus to make sure there isn't some software setting that is causing the issue.
First remove power cord from the wall for five minutes o reset the firmware. Then power on again and let the firmware load before inserting any dvd or cd. If it still can not read the disks, you use TDK lens cleaner until it can read the cleaner disk. It maybe power line glitches, you may need powerline filters for this dvd player.
Well I fixed the problem myself by taking yhe cover off and cleaning the laser with a cue tip and alchohol very gently of course. I guess it was not reading the disc the first time it closed because some foreign object , works fine now
