Question about Mintek DVD-2580 DVD Player

1 Answer

Disc play interrupted

Recently the dvd player hasn't been reading dvds very well. Sometimes they start out fine but then halfway through the movie little squares appear on the screen, often times starting at the bottom left corner or in the middle of the screen, so the image is distorted and the movie no longer plays smoothly, cutting in and out. The picture and the audio both do not work when this happens. Sometimes it starts right away or other times its fine until we hit fast forward. It also will occasionally say "no disc" when there is a dvd in there that has played perfectly before. None of the dvds are burned, they're all store/amazon bought.

Why is it that sometimes I can watch DVDs on Windows Media Player and sometimes not?

Some movies are encoded with a protection the Disc acts as if you are tempting to copy the write protected dvd. you can get a program for free called shrink dvd that will remove the protection and copy the movie to your Pc so you can watch it.

The dvd player displays "no disc" sometimes.

In your entertainment center there maybe a very low level vibration interrupting the dvd lasers ability to track the dvd's.You should try using a rubber damping pad under the player or putting noise damping feet on the the player. This should stabillize the player and let the unit work correctly Hope this helps you with your problem.

Disney dvd player wont play movies (dvd) but plays music (cd) fine

Might be the type of movie - some of them are only able to play "G" ratings. Try this: click <play> 1234 <play> It will likely unlock the dvd that is in and will begin to play. You will have to do the 'code' each time, or there's an unlock program you can purchase.

DVD stopped playing all DVDs

Reset you player by doing the following:
With the player on, hooked properly to your television, and on the correct station:
Open the tray
Close the tray (with no DVD inserted)
Hold the stop button down for a full 5 seconds
The CyberHome screen should appear. You should be able to play your dvd's now.

Samsung DVD-4600 DVD/VCR Player

My Smasung DVD/VCR Combo stopped reading DVDs because of a dirty read head. It started by only playing disks sometimes, and progressed to never playing disks. I assumed it was a dirty laser lens so I bought a lens cleaner set. Unfortunately my player wouldn't play the cleaner disk.

So I took it apart and cleaned the laser lens manually with some isopropyl alcohol (the clenser that came with my cleaning disk), and a lens cloth (that came with my glasses). Just open the case (starting with the screws in the back) and remove the snap in cross panel that obscures the lens of the DVD portion. Put a drop of cleanser on the lens and gently wipe it with the cloth.

Oh and by the way, I take no responsibility if you break your own player while following my instructions. My own DVD player was far out of warranty at the time I cracked it open.

Tempremental playing dvds

In response to your jvc-a75r DVD player, sometimes the solution might be less complex than it may appear. Had the same problem with my Samsung s321,the machine refused to read DVD's but would play CD's no problem. Simply opened up the cover(usually)4-6 small screws, and found my dog's hair inside of the player covering the laser eye.Electrostatic ionization attracts dust,etc. into the player remarkably well sometimes. Carefully used a cotton swap to remove debri. PLayerworked fine afterwards ...Good luck!
