That player is at least 5 years old. The DVD market has changed a lot over the last 5 years. Blue ray and HD and now UHD and 4K so it is time to get a new player. Most places wont take a DVD back after you open it.

Basically you need to buy a new remote as the buttons do wear out or get dirty over time, and repairing them is pretty much impossible.

I had this exact same issue with a TEAC VCR a couple of years ago. The problem was the mode switch/loading motor. A new loading belt and new mode switch fixed the problem.

In this case, I would be pretty sure the mode switch is not allowing the mechanism to fully load correctly, hence the 'error' on the display. A new mode switch is inexpensive as a part by itself, but the labour involved by a workshop to fit and align it to the mechanism to it could be costly, but you can always obtain a quote beforehand; that way you can decide if it is worth getting the VCR fixed (because it is a combo unit with DVD player, I can totally understand this). As long as the DVD part works fine, you can go ahead with a workshop repair on the VCR, since this is a straightforward issue which is fixable.

It is up to you, you can always say no if the repair quote/labour cost is likely to exceed the value of the unit.

The good news is this 'error' with the VCR is easy to correct - in a workshop by a qualified technician. I don't recommend that you attempt to service this unit yourself unless you have considerable experience with electro-mechanical devices such as VCRs. These are complex machines, and the alignment of such requires an expert with service manuals, adequate stock of spare parts, and all the necessary equipment to do this properly. Hence why I suggest the quote.

You could clean the mode switch with an aerosol electronic cleaner (available from places like Radio Shack), but this will not last very long and is not reliable. Whenever this issue occurs, and the switch is found to be the culprit, it must be replaced/mech. re-aligned/re-timed; since these are not cleanable items as they develop high resistance on their internal contacts.

Fingers crossed that it is a cheap enough repair overall.

Are the batteries good? Do you see any lights (if it has any) when you press any of the buttons? It this a universal remote? Have you programmed the remote for your TV?

Daewoo Televison... | Answered on Feb 02, 2019

not enough information... when the tv is on standby then there should be a led on...what happens when on is pushed...is the light then flashing or remains the same...starting point is to check the powersupply rails... a circuit would be helpfull. This tv is an old CRT type which would have a b+ rail of aprox 150v and how that rail is set up is important (feedback and protection may shut down the rail)

Unless you have a second DVD player (or a PC with a DVD drive or similar) on hand, to cross-reference the discs with, you won't be able to tell if it is the discs or the Daewoo player that has the issue. It could just be a bad batch of discs, but without the second player available to confirm this, there is little you can do.

On the other hand, some of the discs may not be NTSC, they may be PAL, and unless your player supports PAL compatible playback, it won't play it. Rare, but not uncommon (some PAL DVD players won't play NTSC discs regardless of the region code), and it is not your player that is necessarily at fault here.

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