Yeah, she put a DVD in on top of another DVD and closed player, tried to play and now I get "NO PLAY" on DVD display and "This disc may not be played in your region" on the TV display. Help, I love my DVD-XP30 and need to find a fix!

I gather it won't eject them both?


Turn the player upside down and tap gently then right side up and try to eject.


That doesn't work you'll have to open the player and open the drive to remove them. Not that hard to do.

The player ejects and loads without a problem. It just won't play another DVD. I get the "No Play" and the "This disc may not be played in your region" messages. Weird, I have no idea what the problem is. Help

Sounds like the pickup laser got damaged. You might want to open it up and see if it's scratched or otherwise damaged and see if a good gentle polish will bring the lens back if it is, otherwise it might be garbage


I have done that before on a few of my DVD burners in here and luckily so far it just made awful noises and scratched the disks but didn't damage the burner.

Would you be interested in an Oppo 981 in like BN condition? That will be the end of your worries.

I would be tempted. I took the XP-30 to a repair shop. It is the perfect DVD player for my 720P display until I need to go 1080P. If mine cannot be repaired I'm thinking about an entry level BR. I'll get back to you on the Oppo 981 because it is a fine player, if I have to decide to replace my XP-30, and thanks for the offer.

There is an AVS member named Sango who repairs Panasonic DVD players in his spare time, mostly as a hobby, and could probably fix it for you if the repair shop cannot. Sango is a great guy to deal with and I highly recommend you consult him if all else fails.

Did you get anything from the repair shop yet?


For next time I would have done a bit more testing... does it play CD-DA discs still? How about CDs with audio files, MP3 and WMA? There are so many questions that could help figure out the extent. I would have done everything myself that I could rather than pay the $60/hr to have it diagnosed... by the time you get parts and install a new player (even BR) may be less expensive.


I remeber looking at my RP-91 when it had a disc problem, found out it would cost about $60 in parts to get a new disc assembly (thanks to sango finding the correct replacement part). I never did fix the RP-91 just because of the cost. And this was just a motor problem, not a pickup problem which could be more difficult to do it yerself.
