    The DVD player was working fine but I do have a bad habbit of leaving a disc in it without turning it off. Well, I did this one night then took the dvd out the next day and turned of the dvd player. Then later in the day I turned it on and put a dvd in and the icon comes on the screen likes it's reading the disc, but the dvd player doesn't sound like it's doing anything. Then the icon says there is not a dvd in there. I have a disc used for cleaning dvd playing and I tried to put that in but it didn't recognize that in there either.

    I have the same problem.  I have a disk in the player and it says it is loading, but then it says there is no disk.


    The answer given previously was the last had to be cleaned.  How do you do that?  Can I do that myself?

    Are you using a commercial type DVD like ones that have movies on them or was this one burned on a computer or another recorder?

SOURCE: Dvd reading

I had the same thing happen to a used DuraBrand 7" Portable DVD Player. Check and see if the laser transport is locked in at the top of the track -- which would be in position to read the outer edge of the DVD. The laser transport gets locked into this position and you get "no disc" error messages.

I removed the bottom of the DVD player -- a matter of seven screws -- and moved the laser transport by hand nearer to the center post of the DVD turntable. This cured the problem and my DuraBrand is working fine now.

I have no idea what makes the laser transport move to the extreme outer position and get locked there, but this solution works. Good luck with your own.

I load a dvd in the sylvania sdvd 9009 player and it says no disc after loading


If the DVD loads, there should be something on the display that indicates it is being read (maybe a spinning disc icon). If it tries to read, then displays the "no disc" icon it means either that particular DVD can't be read or the drive has failed. If you try another DVD and get the same result, you can be pretty sure the drive has failed

Sony dvd player doesn't read disc says no disc when loaded


This would indicate the laser pickup assembly is the problem, try a DVD cleaning kit and follow instructions, if no change, far cheaper to replace the stereo.

After disc is loaded, it says "unknown disc."


Is it a pirated dvd? If it is, do you know some dvd players won't read pirated dvds? And if it isn't, then your dvd player may be dirty (the lens). For that you would have to buy a cleaning disk. You can get one at Radioshack. Or maybe what type of dvd type is it? Is it dvd-r, dvd-rw, or what? Some dvd players have trouble reading dvd-rw sometimes.

Hope this helps.

I believe the craig CVD329 is a progressive DVD player, not a HD DVD player. It can not read HD DVD discs, it can only read regular DVD discs.
