20 Most Recent Rotel RDV-1040 DVD Player Questions & Answers

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!!!

Hello Ernest, I'm going to think that you have a Vizio Smart TV; (only happens when using SmartCast?) In this case it is a variant to perform a Factory Reset, it is very likely that it will be restored to normality.
Anyway, you should check the Moden or Router (if you have it) connection does not seem to be the application, but as if it were connectivity problems because in Vizio SmartCast mode is included in the included applications.
I leave a link to follow the procedure to factory reset.

Personally I do not pay for defective or damaged items. I always return for a refund or exchange for a new one.Put your big girl pants on on and return it.

There is something short inside the circuit board, may be a shorted transistor or so. Your TV need a through check up. Contact any service technician. Products powered by electricity should be serviced or repaired only by experienced professional technicians. Any attempt to service or repair the product by anyone else could result in serious injury or death. If you are not familiar with electronics, do not attempt to repair. Whether you suffer fatal electrical shock. Instead, contact the nearest service centre.

Hello John, compact disc recordable, can't be erased once the data is recorded on it. Only the CD-RW (Compact Disc-ReWritable) and DVD-RW that are rewritable have this option; also be aware that CD-RWs may not be compatible with all CD and DVD players. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CD-RW

Use code search on your Star URC to find something that works. If a search through all codes stored in the URC fails, try a different one.

Use code search on your One For All remote control to find something that works. If a search through all codes stored in the remote control fails, you may have to try a different universal remote control. all universal remote controls do not contain all possible codes.
