Alba DVD 114 can not play DVDs
I live in the UK and bought an Alba DVD 114 player. It worked for a good few months then stopped recognising DVD disks. It plays Audio CDs but will not play any DVD disks at all. The disk is inserted, it takes about 3 minutes before displaying No Disc on the display panel. I do not know if the video and audio settings have altered and I still have the remote but no instruction manual.

What is wrong with the DVD player?

Maybe its full of dust? Playstation 2's have  tendancy to do that too. You gotta open em up and clean off the lense with a q-tip and often even have to re-adjust the laser.

Have you tried unplugging it for a day and then plugging it back in? It might reset the programming if it was a power issue.

Hope that helps.

If it is new, maybe it's time to go back to the retailer for warranty? We get 12 months usually here in Australia for electrical goods.
