Have you tried a lens-cleaning disk? Data on DVDs is much more closely packed and so the weaker signal prehaps more likely to be lost to a dusty lens.

Our DVD player stops several time during a movie. This even happens on new movies. What can we do about this?


Tries websites like Amazon.com,Ebay.com buy a set that call a DVD or CD disc laser eye cleaner.Used it might help.If still happening than the laser eye itself it is dying and to be dead soon.DVD players that are having laser eyes are dying or don't read DVD or CD disc like say no disc all the time.Are not repairable except replaced the whole laser eye data's reader itself not practical,because u can a whole new basic DVD player just the same prices or even cheaper.These day a basic DVD players u can buy it like $40 brand new at any major box retailers stores like Walmart,Target..extra.

Samsung DVD-V6800 combo wont read any DVD's


When you put disc in dvd player tray, optical laser got initialized automatically and all previous data in memory of player erased.
You should not worried about laser movement because its control by servo section of dvd player circuitry.
Kindly contact Samsung to provide warranty cover of your newly player.
Need further info, let me know please.

After inserting dvd in player it reads no disc


Hi,
Unfortunately , Some DVD players cant read some DVD s and
then it gives either "loading" or " no disc"..reading on the display...

it generally happens when you want to play "A copied DVD/CD " taken from somewhere else..
Just to make sure that such DVD is ok ,you can try to run them on your laptop.If the disc itself has problem, laptop does not read either..
Just in case,quick remedy ,
pls Clean your DVD player's LASER lens .. A clean DVD player Lens ensures that your DVD disc would be read properly. Unfortunately, your DVD player's Lens accumulate as much dust and lint as the other parts of the DVD player. There are many available DVD lens cleaner kits that you can purchase and use to clean your DVD player.

YOUR DVD disc itself should be clean and finger prints free as well....
Here are three suggested DVD Lens Cleaner that should do the job of cleaning your DVD Player's lens.
Memorex Laser Lens Cleaner for DVD - This cleaner contains six soft brushes that gently remove dust, dirt and other airborne contaminants from your DVD player's lens. (Price: $6.09)
Maxell DVD-LC DVD Lens Cleaner - This DVD Lens cleaner features the "Thunderon Brush System" and include tests for audio performance including Dolby 5.1 surround sound. It also features an interactive on-screen instructions in 8 languages including system set-up. (Price: $10.81)
Allsop 23321 Carbon-Edge DVD and CD-Drive Cleaner - This DVD Lens Cleaner features an 8 brush carbon-system with carbon edge that removes static build-up from your DVD Players. It prevents skipping and also improves the sound and picture output of your DVD Player. ($13.11)

if this remedy does not help and if your set has still under warranty ,consult to service they may replace the LASER Reader EYE...most of the time Laser Eye malfunctions and does this..
if it is not under warranty ,never ,never have someone repaired it..go buy a new one,It will be cheaper.. ...

Hope this helps! Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me

LG DVD PLAYER DP 171 First problem: don't read any dvd, but main motor work. I have changed de laser module, but main motor doesn't work. Before, the main motor work. How is possibile to...


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.

Now since you have changed with a new one ( please make sure that the solder jumper was removed which is for static damage security in the new unit)

The main motor will not work in some cases as unless the tracks are read the drive motor will not work with signal from the processor.
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

Dvd will not play, machine is saying 'no disc'.


Put in an ordinary audio CD and play to notice if the CD is detected. If yes the optical is working, if not there is no laser scanning and the possibility that the laser head can be defective.
Now certain cleaner disks will not be tracked to run for cleaning as it is not read. Hence it will reject. So it is ideal to clean manually the laser head eye using a 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.
