Re: Still not working

Is it possible for you to see the lens while the disc in on the platform or turntable while its tring to see the disc?? if you can manage this see if the lens moves up and down . If it does then the units trying to focus but cannot. as it needs to focus on the surface of the disc to reconize the disc or to start it spinning. If its trying to but dosent it could be the spindle motor or the control curcuit, the laser its self but not likely as alot of repair peeps blame the pickup assy but motre then 3/4 that are returned for warrantee replacements have been found not to be defective, the turntable could have slipped down, or it needs a foucus offset or focus gain alighnment. In any case your gonna need to probably take this to a good audio repairperson to see what the treue problem is. Good Luck

Will not load to watch. says no disc

Hopefully it's just dirt on the lens of the player, which can be cleaned off. If it that doesn't work, then either then lens is damage or there's an electronic fault, or mechanical fault.

I have a (jvc dvd digital cinema system th-s3). that will not play original dvds however it seems to play copies and cds just fine in fact all other functions work correctly. i have tried a lens cleaning...

I have the same system. I've had no trouble until a year ago, then the system got particular about when it wanted to play DVDs. I've also used lens cleaner to no avail. It plays some DVD's but plays all CD's and some copies. It has given me good service but cost me a lot of money. I hope there is a simple solution to this.

My RCA RTD317 has problems recognizing most DVD movie disks. It will play some disks most of the time and all audio disks, so I figure the lasers are working. What could be the problem?

If you've tried cleaning the Laser with a Lens Cleaner Disk or directly with Lens Cleaner Fluid and a QTip without any improvement then the Laser is Failing.

It takes less power to read some DVDs than others and a lot less power to read an Audio CD. The Laser will continue to deteriorate until it won't play anything.

Pioneer xv-hdt520 stereo dvd/cd player cant get it to play cd,s works fine on the dvd part of it and all discs are read by the same reader it just tries to start then boots the cd out no matter which...

I would guess this model is over two years old. not sure how much you paid, but target sells a decent surround sound blue ray system for just under 300. i got it. it works great, streams netflix movies an even has an internet radio system in it.

if you dont wanna do that, and have made sure that you have tried brand new cds, another option is to play cds on a cheap cd player hooked into your surround sound. it can go in any input on the back with an adaptor you can buy at radio shack, or many of them have an input in the front.

they used to make a cd lens cleaner, not sure if they still exist. it was a tiny brush hooked onto a cd that you put in and it cleaned up the lens.

bottom line is that it makes little to no sense to me that it would play dvds and not cds. i would assume that they both use the same lens to read the device.

When I put a DVD in the player it gives a "no Disk" message.

I had the SAME problem, and all that was needed was for the laser lens to be cleaned. They have laser lens cleaning discs at Best Buy (that's where I got mine) and probably just about any electronics store that sells/repairs DVD players-- mine cost about $16. You pop it in, it spins and cleans the laser lens, and then your discs are able to be read properly. Hope it helps-- it worked for me!

My jvc wont play disc's anymore it keeps saying no disc I took the cover off and cleaned the eye and that worked for two days and now its back to not reading discs.


OK, if you already tried to clean the laser lens, you might be out of luck, because it is the laser lens which cases this problem.

You can try running another laser lens cleaner disc, if this doesn't work, the lens itself is burnt out.


Kind regards

The player will not play dvd's or cd's, what might be the problem? The stereo will work, but the discs will not play.


You probably need to have the DVD optical lens to be cleaned. You can also try to buy some CD lens cleaner discs from best buy.

I hope this helps. Thanks and good day.

Do you mean DVD jumps / skips forward in playback?
If yes, please clean optical laser lens in player. It sounds optical lens has thin layer of dust and causing ' tracking error ' in playback.
Put CD Lens Cleaner disc in player and press play to clean optical lens by cleaning disc and if problem still exist, need to clean lens manually with good quality cotton bud.
Hope this will solve your problem.

Denon DHT-500SD - DVDs wont load

the problem may be two fold
1 the optical pickup assembly's lens may be dirty and needs to be cleaned (donot use any liquid to clean the lens just a soft cotton swab will do)
2 the optical pickup assembly has failed and can no longer read discs (if the laser or sensors inside the optic fail it is "blind" and can not "see" the disc)
start with the cleaning.

Did this problem just start or been that way since you purchased it? Do you still have a warranty on it? Whens the last time the Lazer Lense has been cleaned?
