It sounds like your laser or or other part in your CD/DVD has issues. There isnt much you can do to self repair it. Hopefully its still under warranty.

What format video will play from a flash drive


If you wish to play video on any usb-supported devices using usb stick or flash drive, kindly check compatible format for the devices. Try searching it around using google. Some devices only supports .avi or just .mkv but there are also devices that can support various formats. The video format can be changed using FormatFactory. This software can convert pictures, videos, songs to different format according to your preferences.

I have a Power Acoustik PTID-7000NR and the cd is stuck and will not come out. It plays fien and everything else works. But the CD will not come out. Any suggestions? Thanks!


you may have two cd`s inside take the radio out and take it apart. inside the radio there is a realese for the cd tray but you have to have power to the unit for it to work. eject the cd from the front then hit the release on the inside its a little tricky but you should be able to find it

MY PTID 8940NR WILL NOT PLAY DVDS


Hello,

how long have you been using this player? I suspect the laser (lens) of the player. I think the laser (lens) is weak that's why it cannot read data/files on DVD discs.

To confirm if actually its a laser problem, insert an Audio CD into the player and see if will play. If it plays, then obviously, your laser (lens) is weak. But if it doesn't play Audio CD, then it might still be the laser (lens) or a mechanism problem.

Get a lens cleaner, use it to clean the lens. If that doesn't solve the problem, get a screw driver, open the player's cover so that you can gain access to the lens, use a cotton board to clean the surface of the lens. This should clean dust or dirt that might be on the lens.

If non of the above solves the problem, then know that you need to replace the laser to a brand new one.

To replace the lens, remove the bad laser, use it as a sample to get exactly the same type and do the replacement. Note that replacing a laser (lens) needs a professional touch, so if you cannot replace the laser, get it to a repairman to fix it for you.

Once this us done, your player will play all DVD discs again.

Good luck.

Print via usb with HP C3100 photosmart printer on an orange livebox printer using mac os10.6.2


As far as I know, a Livebox does not support an USB print server function, if that's what you're trying to accomplish. The USB port in the Livebox is for configuration only.
However, there might be a new model I haven't seen that has such a functionality.

Xo vision dvd player/receiver 1906 wont read my usb or SD disk.


Consult the manual, it should probably say something about external media.

Check what kind of disk format is supported by your player - some players will recognize an external usb disk (or a usb memory stick) only if it's formatted in FAT32 file system.

Note that if you format the disk on a Windows machine, it will only do it on drives with a relatively small capacity (i think it's up to 32 GigaBytes), but other operating systems (like MAC OS) can perform a FAT32 format even on drives with far greater capacity.

As for the SD disk (did you mean a SD memory card?), see what the manual says about the format type, have the card (disk) formatted in the supported format and see if that works, otherwise you might want to try other brands of SD cards - my friend has an Avia (not Aiwa) dvd player with a usb port and a SD card slot and it simply won't accept some brands or models of SD cards, but will work well with others and it also works well with USB disks and USB memory sticks formatted in FAT32 file system.

That's about all i could suggest, i hope you can get it to work.

Mech Comm Error


sounds like they may have forgotten to take out transit plugs from radio which holds cd mechanism in place when shipping unless you got a new radio thats a dud? but that may also mean dealer didnt check operation of new unit after replacement if replaced which is what usually needs to be done when this error message comes up
