Does it do this with all Discs? If you haven't I would try using a Different disc one you know works in another DVD system. You can do a couple things if it still does not play a known good disc. You can purchase and run a CD/DVD Lens cleaner disc, or you can open up the player and find the section where the DVD sits and is spun up to operation speed, Look for a Small Glass looking Eye/lens, It will be on a movable carriage that allows the player to read the disc across its entire width, Get a couple Good quality Q-Tips and Personally I prefer 90% Rubbing Alcohol, Take the Q-Tip and soak one end and use that end to clean the lens, then I would soak the opposite end of Q-Tip in alcohol again and repeat the cleaning, Following that Use one of the new Q-Tips to wipe the lens to ensure there are no smudges or alcohol left on lens. Re-assemble unit and re-try playing disc. I have done this oh id say 200+ times on both CD players DVD Players and my Laptop DL DVD recorder and every time I had a Issue of playback Errors this has always solved theissue and the players work like new

Daenyx TV DVD Player Error

You either have a dirty optical pickup or a bad one in the unit--it reads the disc.

They do make a cleaning disc but that is only 50-50 chance(sometimes a disc gets put in with some kind of residue on it)

If bad the built in player will cost more to fix/replace than a cheap external unit connected to rear inputs in place of it--this is the real issue with combo units--usually cheaply made etc.

We have a spectroniq pdv-768. When we put in a disc and it try to load it it come back and says WRONG DISC. How do we get it to read the disk and play?

If your dvd player on your flat panel tv says "wrong disc" then it usually means that the format used to create the disc is not compatible with your player. Read the manual that came with your tv to figure out what file formats are acceptable for burned discs. Try another disc. Verify with a store bought disc that your player works. If it plays regular discs and not home made or burned media, then you will know that its just the file format used when the disc was created that is causing the issue.

LG DVD player - disc will not load / showing disc error for all discs

In most cases when the CD does not play it is possible that the optical head is a suspect. Sometimes it might pick up ordinary audio CD but will not play other formats. This indicates that the optical head is weak and so there is no detection or scanning of the CD . If the optical is working the tracks will be read immediately but with no scanning the laser head can be defective.
Sometimes certain cleaner disks will not be tracked to run for cleaning as it will not be read and so will reject. Hence it is ideal to manually clean the laser head eye using a cleaning swap /cotton bud with gentle pressure on the lens eye.
If there is no result then watch if the CD spins or tries to spin. If so the board seems to work unless a test is taken on the main board but the possibility of a defective optical head can be the suspected fault.
If any of the above seems otherwise we must recheck with possibilities of a malfunction of the main processor board

The laser head is newly replaced, "but very selective" plays only audio CD, when it comes to DVD discs it displays no disc.

Either the laser is installed incorrectly with focus errors, it is the wrong laser, it is a Panasonic and the tab switch is still across the DVD part or the spindle motor does not get up to speed.
I cannot comment any further as you failed to mention what make or model.
Hope that helps.

My fukuda dvd player won't play any dvd or cd.It always show the "no disk " error even if there is already a cd/dvd inside.Already remove the top cover and saw that the disc is spinning but will...

Either the spindle motor is not reaching the required speed to read the table of contents, the traverse motor is in the wrong place and won't allow the disc to be read or the laser is faulty.
It could be any combination of the above. Time for a new player?

When movie is playing, the screen continues to stop and go to a black screen. I took the disc out to wipe it off with a lint free towel and it's still stopping often.

I think the problem didn't come from the television.
Maybe the disc is too hard to play, this usually happen when we play an original CD or DVD.
Or your CD/DVD player already broken so it can't spin the disc.

Hope this help and RATE please !

I put the disc in and the display comes up with READ then NO DISC and ejects the disc. I have clean the drive. If I put an audio disc in it plays okay. It will not read a DVD, not sure why. can anyone...

The CD is a simpler system than DVD and requires less information to complete the codes. Replace the laser as it is out of tollerance.
Ebay stock replacement mechanisms.
