Hello, Have you tried more than one DVD- in other words does it do this with ALL DVD's?

Also how long have you owned the set for and when did the problem occur?

I have tried others. It said No DVD when I turned it on today with the DVD still in that we watched last night. I bought it Nov 2014. I bought 2 identical at the same time. The other one did this several months ago. We just quit using that one. Now today we have the same problem with this one.

Okay this is a hardware fault with the DVD drive in the sets. RCA's are notorious for this fault and this is something that requires repairs (replacing the DVD drive), or a workaround (connecting a regular DVD player to the TV's AV ports). Since an external DVD player can be purchased for as little as $25 from WalMart, and the replacement drive or these sets is around $55- plus dismantling the set to replace it, I personally would suggest simply working around the issue with another DVD player. There's no quick fix for this- it's an issue inherent to the cheap DVD player used in the set. I wish there were a quick fix, but beyond leaving the set unplugged for an hour or more in the hopes it resets- that's about all you can do.

If you need a link to the replacement drive- let me know and I will dig for a source.

Alternatively if you need a link to a repair center, or a suggestion for an external player- simply reply back and we can proceed.

The DVD module is at the link below for $62 and change plus shipping:

Whereas an external DVD player can be connected to the TV's RCA AV ports and is below for much less than that:

Other than that, I'm sorry for the bad news on this one.
