Re: No disc

This is in response to the exchange program. I found the site online from the sony official site. If its under warranty, then there is no cost, but if you leave the date blank (or the date indicates that your product is out of warranty), then the cost is around $85 - not $12.50 With repairs being what they are, its cheaper to buy a new one...

Re: No disc

Your unit is not reading the disc. If you know absolutely that you have a good disc it could be anything from the laser being dirty to too much slop in the laser control arm to an accumulation of dirt and grime. The easiest remedy is to try a cleaning disc preceeded by an inspection of the laser area for any foreign matter such as hair or dirt. I've taken dust bunnies and hair balls out of PS-2 laser assemblies so don't be upset by what you find. If you remove all dirt, run the cleaning disc and still cannot read a disc you'll probably need a tech to look at it. Good luck.

Why does my digitec dvd player say NO DISC?

Usually, you either have dust on the laser, so it can't see anything, or you have something on your disc (or damage to the inside part of the disc, which tells the player where all the files are). You can try cleaning your disc, but if you've already tried more than one disc, you might be able to find a CD or DVD cleaning disc at an electronics store. If your DVD player plays CDs, either one might work, but if it doesn't play CDs, then you will have to look for a DVD cleaner. As a last resort, you could try getting a can of electronics dusting spray (don't use a vacuum, as the static from a vacuum can damage electronics) and use several quick sprays, while the DVD player is unplugged. Give it a few minutes to dry out, then give the DVD one more try.

Advent problems

Dear Stephanie,

Check at the rear of your DVD player or in its manual which region is it set to. It has a symbol that resembles a globe with a number inside.

In the U.S., players are set for region 1. Latin America and Australia for region 4. Europe and Middle East for region 2 and so on. Please check:

Maybe you are trying to use a DVD for region 2 (from Europe) in a DVD player in U.S., that only accepts region 1 discs. Please, check the label on your DVD or the back of its box.

Another reason could be that you are trying to play a recorded DVD in a format that is not read by your device, like DVD-R or DVD+R.

Hope you may find this information useful!

Best regards,

Miguel Luiz Martins

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.

I have tried several DVD discs in my Memorex DVD player and the same thing keeps occurring where it will say it is loading but then after a minute or so it says "Wrong Disc." It used to work fine...

I am not even sure I am allowed to tell you this but if you take out all the screws holding the cover in place so you can clean the lens inside with a cotton swab and a little bit of alcohol it will most likely fix your DVD player. MAKE SURE IT IS UNPLUGGED!!! If you dont UNPLUG it you can cause serious injury or death! I myself have fixed several read errors by doing so. Make sure to replace cover before plugging it back in.

When I put dvd inside of dvd player, player says there is no disc inside

I'm not really an expert in this area so please dont' be mad if I say something wrong, but I do know that in order for a disc to be read by the device, a laser has to shine onto the disc and when it reflects back, that's how it is read. I don't know if something is wrong with the laser or if it's just not reading it for some odd reason but maybe if you want it fixed you might would want to send it into the company or buy a new one.

My daughters GoVideo DVD player always says CHECK DISC!

If no disk is detected it means that the lens are dirty or defective.
If the lens cleaner disk, or using Qtips and alcohol did not work, then the lens pickup or the disk drive must be replaced. this involves precision soldering and must be done by a technician. Regards.

Insignia portable player NS-8PDVDA not working

Here's how I've solved same symptoms with our NS -PDVD8a:

1. Cleaned laser optics with isopropyl alcohol/swap --make sure you let the optics dry/IPA evaporate from the optics before running
2. Using compressed air can--cleaned laser track
3. Gently move laser along track several times - it seems laser is having most trouble at start of disc -- not sure it needs lubrication, but running it along track several times seems to have righted it

Had to do this a couple of times, but it's working now -- expect I will need to do this again -- no idea how long fix will work.

Good luck!

Troubleshooting pdv-0800

The usual reason for a drive to report "No Disc" is that the Reader eye is dirty or past its servicable life. this will be shortened in a Smoky or Dusty environment, A Cleaning disc (Preferably wet and dry) in the drive may solve the problem if the drive is dirty, if not then a replacment reader or drive are the only options.
If the Player is still within warranty I suggest you send it n.
