    I have a Kenwood DV-505 DVD/CD player that suddently decided to stop reading
    DVDs. It still reads CDs VCDs CDRW, etc. Try to read a DVD and it will go
    to some odd chapter, and sit there doing nothing. Or, it will continually
    change discs looking for something it can read.

    From what I've gathered it sounds like it's the pickup, and not worth
    fixing, but I'm hoping maybe someone can give me a miracle solution.
    Anyone?

    Thanks!
    Clinton.

    I would check the performance of the laser assembly.

    i.e. the pickup, which others have suggested and I agree with.

    Clinton,

    I'd try cleaning it fairly thoroughly. Dust is death on CD/DVD
    players.

    Put a meticulously clean CD or DVD in the player, and then check the
    CD/DVD disc once you take it out. If it has dust hanging all over it,
    then the player is dirty and needs to be cleaned.

    If this doesn't help I'd just buy a new player. They are so cheap
    these days.

    I retired my old technology DVD player to play MP3 data discs for me.
