Turn off and disconnect power from unit. Check laser shuttle worm gear, look for dirt or hair (as I found). Remove with tweezers carefully. Check lubrication of worm gear shaft. If gone or worn, use white lithium grease to lube (very little). Play music CD 2 - 3 x. Than DVD. Worked for me.

Check your settings in the menu of the dvd player you can do this with or without a dvd in it. If not a setting it maybe the speaker/s are blown try putting earphones in if you get sound from them it is probably the speakers.

The problem I think is with the burner on your pc. Try re burning on another program like Nero and pay attention to the options. It will ask you if you wish to play disc in all types of players.

If it has the RCA (Red,White,Yellow) ports you will have to use those. In that case if you are using something like a DVD player that only has HDMI output you will need a special cable that goes from RCA to HDMI. Here is a quick link for you to reference.

2 answers 1 usually you can remove a stuck disk by finding the tiny pin hole on the dvd insertion tray and pushing it in about 1/2 inch this will force open the player so you can remove the stuck bootleg dvd you put in it. step 2 is you can unplug the tv lay it face down and remove the stand and the back screws from the tv there about 20 screws once removed you can pll the back off the TV and find the dvd module and carefully disconnect the moduler plugs connected to the dvd
