Question about Televison & Video
I have a GOTECH GTD 5200 DVD player. It is a "Play Only", very simple. Every time I put in any disc and press play or any other key on the rmote or on the device itself it reads"err disc" on the tv screen. I have used a cleaning disk, and I have cleaned the laser"eye" with isopropyl alcohol. None of this works. The player itself has been barely used, maybe 10 times in the past year since I bought it. It worked fine the last time I used it 2-3 months ago but even after mty attempts to clean it as other sites have suggested it still reads "err disc". I also have misplaced the instruction manual, however, it is a "play only". Any suggestions!?!??!!,
Thank You, Bob Frustrated.
Connect the DVD player and while it is off, press for 5-10 seconds the 'A-B' button. This will help clear the 'Bad Disc' memory. Enjoy!

I had a similar problem...the machine, which had been great up until then, started to be very fussy when loading a disc; using a lens cleaner did not help at all.
I opened the disc tray and used a can of "air duster" with the straw attachment blowing in lots of air into every little nook and cranny that I could reach, especially in and around the actual lens area. The liquified gas under pressure must have been too cold as, at first, there was no improvement whatsoever when I tried playing a disc. However, the next day the player was working perfectly again.
It is worth a try.

Might be the type of movie - some of them are only able to play "G" ratings. Try this: click <play> 1234 <play> It will likely unlock the dvd that is in and will begin to play. You will have to do the 'code' each time, or there's an unlock program you can purchase.

I did have a similar problem. It was solved by cleaning the laser lenses/prisma. You have to dismantle the whole pick-up the to see the laser lenses.
There is one lens which is held by couple wires and below there is prisma/mirror.
I did use ear-cleaner-stick and desinfection liquid (with alcohol) for cleaning. Now it works!
