    When I put a DVD in (it's a TV with a DVD player built in if that makes any difference) the blue screen comes up and it says 'reading' as usual but then nothing happens aside from it making a weird squeaky noise. If I wait long enough it then says 'no disc'. It was working perfectly last night and nothing has happened to it in the mean time :confused: I've tried turning it off, using a different DVD etc. Any ideas?

    you could try buying a lens cleaner or something like that.

    otherwise go on freecycle and get a standalone dvd plater, we have 4 or 5 spare ones lying around our house

    The DVD Player is not reading you CD. This means the format in the CD is not compatible with ur player or its damaged. Put some other CD which worked before and see if it still works.

    Better is to a buy a standalone system dvd system.

    Thanks but I already said I've tried other discs and the same problem occurs.

    To me, it sounds like a mechanical fault! If it didn't recognise the disc or the lens needed cleaning then it wouldn't make noises. Making noises it shouldn't = a shot mechanism.

    If you bought the DVD/TV combi as a space-saver, rather than separate units (space invaders), then just use the DVD player in your PC/laptop.
