How to Fix the DVD Player on a Digilogic TV

Updated February 21, 2017

Digilogic is an inexpensive electronics company that produces a selection of different televisions. Some of these TVs come with a built-in DVD player. This frees up any cable connection typically required with most DVD players, but it does not free up the system from all problems that may arise while playing a DVD movie. If you should encounter any issues with the DVD player on your Digilogic TV, you must follow a few troubleshooting steps to correct the issue.

Power down the Digilogic TV/DVD combo device. This performs a hard reset and corrects many programming issues with the system, including DVD playback issues (including problems that prevent the DVD from loading). Leave the Digilogic off for a few minutes, then power the device back on.

Eject the DVD from the DVD drive and inspect the bottom of the disc. Look over the bottom of the DVD. If there are any fingerprints, dust, dirt or other debris on the bottom of the DVD, the disc is not going to play. Wipe the disc off with a clean, damp cloth from the inner ring of the DVD to the outside. If you clean the DVD in a circular motion, the debris is pushed down into the small holes of the disc, damaging the disc further.

Spray a few shots of compressed air into the DVD drive. This removes dust that is stuck to the lens of the Digilogic DVD player, preventing the DVD drive from playing.

Press "DVD" on the Digilogic remote control. If you choose "Video" (as you normally do with a standard DVD to TV hook up) the television displays the device connected to the "Video In" connection, and not the DVD player.
