Re: dvd plays cd's but not dvd's - gives no disc message
I have a durabrand portable dvd player we've owned for about 1yr and had just started messing up. When you put the dvd in it says it's loading and shows the blue dvd screen it just wont come on but you can hear it trying, please help what could be wrong?

First, check which input you have the TV set on. There may be an Input button on the side of the TV. (On the SLEDVD197, the button just below the DVD Eject button.) Just press Input and use the Channel Up/Down arrows to navigate the menu to change to the DVD. Press Input again to Enter the selected option.
With the TV in DVD mode, try pressing Play again. If you still have the error, check the region code for the disc. The "Operation not permitted" messages is usually that something on the disc is locked. Frequently, it's the result of using a different region code disc than the DVD player knows how to interpret. Try a different DVD.
If your TV doesn't have the Input button on the TV, you absolutely need a universal remote. However, you will want one that can match the TV/DVD button, the Input/Select button and the Menu button. Usually this requires a higher end remote; you also need a remote that was programmed at least 6 months after Sansui released the TV. If you do have the Input button on the TV, a universal remote may make using the TV easier.
If you are using the built-in DVD tray, press TV (in case you have a Cable Set-top box). Then press Input and navigate with the up/down keys to the line labeled DVD. Then press OK. Finally press play on the Polaroid TDA-03211C remote or on the side of the TV. The remote play button is in the center of the row below the row with skip reverse and skip forward buttons.
If you are using a different DVD player, press the input button and then the up/down arrows to get to the input for your DVD player. Then press the DVD button to control the DVD player.
If you are using a universal remote control, then you may need to program it to the TV and the DVD player separately. (Some universal remotes may only support the TV functions of this TV.) Make sure that your universal remote has an input button that works. You may need to try multiple codes for Polaroid TVs.
I hope this helps.
Cindy Wells (note: the DVD must be correctly installed so that the printed side (label) is facing the front of the TV. If you do not get a response, try the disc in another DVD player. The DVD player laser tracking can fail without warning. If the disc plays in other units, this may be the problem.)
Ur tv have a RCA INPUT holes like Y,R,W INPUT holes from the Front or the Back of the tv wright?Yes.U must buy or have it already a RCA components cable Y,R,W wires.Connected the RCA components cable Y,R,W wires to the DVD player Y,R,W OUTPUT holes and the other end of the RCA components cable wires Y,R,W connected to the tv Y,R,W INPUT holes.Now the tv and DVD player is on ok.Now u playing the DVD player contents Disc and push the INPUT modes on the tv like VIDEO 1 or 2 by the tv remote or manual button on the tv.Now u should have video picture of the DVD Disc contents playing.
I believe you need to switch the TV to the DVD input mode before inserting a disc. There should be a button on the remote or the TV labelled INPUT or SOURCE. Try pressing this repeatedly until "DVD" is shown on the screen or use the UP/DOWN arrows keys on the remote to select DVD from the input list, then press OK / SELECT / ENTER to choose DVD mode. You should then be able to insert a disc and play it.
I need to check some details for this TV and will get back to you shortly. If the TV really wont accept any disc, then you've bought a lemon and the TV needs to be returned to the store for replacement asap. I will post back with more details below in a few minutes.
When you are turning the recorder on it is blocking the signal for cable going to the TV. Your TV will need to be on channel 3 or 4 depending on what the dvd/vcr player channel output is set to. This is why your tv is asking you to re-scan. It is losing the video signal because the dvd/vcr is taking over. The reason why the vcr with the button on the remote is because the vcr button is changing the function of the buttons on the remote to vcr. Even though the dvd/vcr is one unit they still will act like two seperate components independent of each other. They have seperate power buttons and the dvd player part may need to be hooked up seperately with rca cables to work.
1. Turn it on 2. Press "Setup" on the remote 3. Press the down button twice on the remote 4. Press the right button once on the remote 5. Press the up button once on the remote 6. Press "Ok" on the remote
You need to use an audio CDr, data or computer CDr's will not work in this machine. I don't know this specific machine, but usually you select the input, then 'rec type' eg manual,1 track or 1 disc,then press record to get into record pause,start your source,then press play on the unit to start recording. To finalize, you press finalize then either the play or rec button to start the finalize process.
