    it's stopped playing dvd's all-together.
    it still plays music cd-s as well as cd-r's but any video refuses to play. it just spins up the disc then "no disc" is displayed in the window.

    it just up and stopped working. it's been in the closet for a few months, but i want to get it working again.

    what would be the cause of this? would it be easily fixed?
    it's model number is DV-434.

    thank you

    I had one of these die on me too. The estimate was for a new main board. it was going to cost more than $100 to repair. Wasn't a great player to begin with....

    Retire it and get a new one.

    The cost of repair would probably be equal to or greater than the price of a new one. A new one would offer many new features as well.

    Talk to Pioneer. My DV-05 died, transport. I had to bug them a little, but they took it back and gave me a great deal on the 47ai. (Took me 2 letters and a phone call, but they did do the "right thing.")
