Hey all, thankfully my DVD player isn't doing this but a Friend's is. Last night my friend called me, panicked, because his year old DVD player/HTib combo unit had stopped reading discs which he had been able to play with no problems no more than a week or two ago.According to him it has stopped reading discs period. I don't know much about the unit other than the fact that it's a Panasonic DVD/Reciever HTib combo unit. I told him I'd ask my friends here at the HTF.It sounds as though the thing definently has a major malfunction going on but I'm not sure what it could be. Any ideas? thanks.
