Tip & How-To about Audio Players & Recorders

DVD player wont play disks

Hi, if your dvd player is giving you disk error message or no disk message then the chances are the laser lense needs cleaning.

What you need to do is go to any big computer store and purchase a dvd lense cleaning disk, dont buy the cheapest one as they tend not to work so go for mid range or top end one.
Then all you need to do is put this disk into your dvd player and it will then clean the lense for you and should solve your problem.

If how ever you still have the problem then try different disk in it to ensure the dvd your trying is working ok if after doing this you still have the problem then the chances are the laser unit itself is no good and needs replacing.
The problem with this is unless your dvd player is built into the telly then the chances are it would be cheaper to go out and buy a new dvd player as the cost of repair would more than likely cost more than the cost of a new dvd player

bad disc error


Hi the chances are the problem you are having is going to be with the laser lense, you will probably find that it is covered in dust and is not reading the disks properly, so if you go into a computer repair or hardware shop you can buy a cd lense cleaning kit you then put the cleaning disk into your dvd player and it will then remove any dust build up and should get it working properly.

If after doing this your still having problems then the chances are the laser is on its way out and may need replacing, the problem with this is that the cost of repair could cost more than buying a new dvd player, so for now i would try the lense cleaning kit and see if that solves your problem.
9 out of 10 of the times it solves the problem so it is worth trying the cleaning first.

Also make sure you dvd's are clean and free from scratches you can run them under a cold tap to clean them and then dry them using kitchen roll just dont press to hard when drying.

dvd wil not load says disc error


Hi the message you are getting is telling you that either the laser lense is dirty so buying a cd lense cleaning kit would clean the lense for you or it could mean the laser has packed up and would need replacing.

Make sure the dvd your putting in is not scratched, try blowing into the dvd slot to remove any dust, failing that you need to buy a lense cleaning cd you can get these from most computer stores then run this in your dvd player then give it a try it may solve the problem.
If it dont then the problem is going to be with the laser itself and then you would need to work out wether the cost of repair was worth doing compared to replacing the dvd player.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

my 6 cde changer will no longer play cds, just gives me an error message that says check disk


hi, the only thing you can try is go out and buy a cd lense cleaning cd then put this into your cd player this will then clean the lense and should hopefully solve your problem.
If this dont solve the problem then their is a good chance that the laser has packed up and would need replacing the problem with this is that the cost of repair would be more than buying a new one so unless the cleaning cd works your best option would be to replace the stereo
