    Would the kind people of this forum please help me. I have a Pioneer DV-717 and it has started to play up. When you place a disc into the tray an insert it. It attempts to play it but spits the disc back out, I have tried this with numerous discs. But if you have the tray empty it stays in.
    :lease:

    Probably the laser. I have seen a fair few fail in the last couple of years and so far it's works out to be an uneconomical repair. Maybe time for an upgrade.

    Tried different region discs and I've also changed a switch at the back from PAL to NTSC. Then I changed it to Auto. It has spat out DVD's , music CD's, mp3 discs and VCD's. When I listen to it I hear it start the motor up and warm the laser, but then it stops and spits the disc out.

    Try inserting a laser cleaner, have you ever cleaned it?

    That may have a temporary effect, but a laser that would seem to be that knackered, it will be short lived.
