    Bought one of these as a cheap pressie for the g/f for christmas.
    Set it all up for her, but have got a problem.
    After inserting a disc, all I get is a 'No Disc' warning in the top left of the screen. I've tried several discs (all region 2), but hit the same problem every time.
    Anyone know if this is faulty or if I'm just being incredibly stupid and doing something wrong.
    I've read the manual, but that was no help.
    Any help would be much appreciated please.

    If they are original disks, I would suggest that the unit is faulty.
    Sorry if I'm insulting you but the disks are the right way up aren't they?
    Have you tried an audio CD?

    Yes, the discs are original.
    Yes, I've got them the right way up (not a stupid question at all m8).
    Yes, I've tried an audio cd.

    Looks like I'll have to give Amazon a call then as it looks like it's faulty.
    I just feel really guilty that you buy someone a present on christmas day and it doesn't work :(

    Thanks for your help though, NoDad

    Assuming that these players are tested before they leave the factory (you never know with something as cheap as a Yamada) its probably been given a bad knock by the courier. This can lead to the little laser tray getting stuck at one end and sometimes just a little bit of light finger pressue can put this fault right. Not saying you should do this with a new item but always worth a go if you've bought something secondhand from an auction.
