Re: "No Disc" message

Its always a good idea to open it up and look for accumulated dust on the lens. make sure to note where each screw goes, and such. If you see dust on the lense you can brush it off with a soft brush, and give it a damp wipe. If that didn't do anything then the lens mechanism could use a cleaning and oiling, but dont go any further if you're not confident that you know what you're doing, and don't take things apart to a degree where you're not positive that you'll remember where everything goes. I had a "no disc" error recently that was fixed by taking the lens mechanism apart cleaning and oiling it, and putting it back together. It could also be a problem with the motor. Get a repair estimate at a local shop. good luck

My blue ray player quit playing any dvd/cd etc.apps still work.what could be the problem?

When you load a disc can you you hear it spinning? If not then the primary drive motor or drive mechanism is broken . If it is spinning can you hear the laser extract information as it boots up ?
If it spins and then comes up with disc error or any non compliance message then the laser may be out of sync or jammed. Be very carful if you decide to open it up on your own as obviously you run the risk of a fatal electricity shock.
blue ray disc players and especially temperamental if they are in say a ps3 or have a dual function.
my opinion is to have a professional look at it .
good luck

No disc spin-up when inserted or when powering up

The problem is in the pladder motor that spins the DVD, the motor needs to be replaced, but the problem is they only sell the laser pickup assembly, which is very expensive.

I am receiving the message "no valid disc" on the dual screens...

it appears yous direct drive motor is damaged. When a disc does not spin, it will say the same as a bad disc. You can easily get this fixed, but not cost efficient. Better off replacing it the component.

Hi. Look underneath (bottom) of unit, right under the DVD drive. There is a open narrow slot. Take a PLASTIC, or non-metal, instument, like a chop-stick, etc., & insert into slot. Start from the very right of open slot & move the instrument to the left. You will be moving a plastic slider that will open the dvd drive, Simple. Also, keep a dummy disc in drive & it will open all the time, but the drive will constantly spin & spin, overheat & no longer work. It only shuts down when no disc is inserted. I have rebuilt dozens of these models. What I do is after viewing disc, I remove right away, because when you switch to view from hdd or cable/sat., the inserted disc will spin all the time & wear out drive very soon. By keeping a disc out, the drive will last a long time. It is so easy just to manually!! open the dvd drive, each time. Better than replacing with a PC internal IDE dvd burner. Then you have to cut hole on top for IDE cable & power cable & the dvd burner/drive sits on top of unit because it will NOT fit inside. Plus, if you do this, remember to put plastic button on master slot seen on the back of new dvd burner. Also, another tip, if you save a show, ect, on HDD, burn onto disc right away, if you want to save program onto a disc. Another tip, you can hold onto stop button on remote, a few seconds, & dvd drive door will open. Hold again & it will shut.
