Hello Churen,
If the everything powers on when you push the power button and the optical reader laser is not coming on, then I am sorry to say that this is a serious problem. The optical reader assembly is one of the most expensive parts to replace or work on. If you do not see the laser when you load a disc while you have the cover off, then that means there is a problem with this component and the cheapest solution is to trash it and buy a new player. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but please do not take my word for it call around and get some free quotes from local repair shops and do some research online.

If you do not mind, please rate my help. I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks

Player reading invalid disc and disc is not spinning


My dual screen dvd player was reading invalid disc and disc was not spinning. Took player completely apart and white gears had dirt in them. This was preventing the player from spinning. Used dust remover and cleaned the whole inside and now it works great.

My sylvania portable DVD player won't read discs the display says No Disc after the spin. What do I do?


I had same problem with a sylvania portable DVD: no disc. After cleaning the laser didn't work, I took the unit apart, and found that there is a small gear that moves the laser back and forth across the disc.. The gear could easily be misaligned with a rough bump along the drive.. All I did was realign the gear to the center where the disc was. Inside, there was even a small lever to pull back on to do this.. I also noticed a small Ribbon cable connecting the laser to the main board. Again, seemed nimble. I detached the ribbon, cleaned the connectors with alcohol and reattached. Happy to say, it works perfectly now. :). Good luck.

Toshiba Flat screen VCR/DVD combo DVD doesn't work


that means that the DVD player was unable to read the disk .. that could be caused by dust on the laser inside the unit .. or it could be that your laser is just getting weak ... you can purchase a cleaning disk (a few dollars) it has some little brushes mounted on it that sweep away stuff on the laser .. unless its smoke .. smoke has to be professionally cleaned off the laser or you can do it if you are brave enough to take everything apart .. i use lens cleaning solution..

Ps3 blu-ray player will not work


No it will not.... It surges the disk 2-3 times senses there is a disk and then starts it spinning if there was a disk in there.

Phillips 6500 "no disc". It will read cd but not dvd? I took it apart and cleaned the laser lens w/q-tip and alcohol. No go.


Install the latest firmware located on Philips website. Download to a DVD and the 6500 will do the rest. Good Luck.

PS2 not reading disks


Your lazer lense has bit the dust. Depending on your model type the first gen systems lazers are very easy to replace. The later versions sony made it harder to replace. You can find out what model you have by looking at the back of your PS2 then you can either call sony or go to there website and find out what generation PS2 you have. Then go from there. Hope this helps

DVD player


My Smasung DVD/VCR Combo stopped reading DVDs because of a dirty read head. It started by only playing disks sometimes, and progressed to never playing disks. I assumed it was a dirty laser lens so I bought a lens cleaner set. Unfortunately my player wouldn't play the cleaner disk.

So I took it apart and cleaned the laser lens manually with some isopropyl alcohol (the clenser that came with my cleaning disk), and a lens cloth (that came with my glasses). Just open the case (starting with the screws in the back) and remove the snap in cross panel that obscures the lens of the DVD portion. Put a drop of cleanser on the lens and gently wipe it with the cloth.

Oh and by the way, I take no responsibility if you break your own player while following my instructions. My own DVD player was far out of warranty at the time I cracked it open.

Disc loads but player displays No Disc message


If you cleanred the optics and this didnt help then you did all you can do without more test equipment. Your player might need an focus or tracking offset alighnment or a focus or tracking gain alighnment or the unit could have a defective laser. Only by connecting it up to test equipment will a tech be able to tell.
