When I put in a movie, it will play for while, then I have all these little digital squares on the screen that pulsate. I take the DVD to another unit and it plays perfectly, so I am sure it is the unit, not the movie.

Unit is old enough that the laser pickup may be worn out. Not an uncommon problem with older disc players. You may try to obtain the laser pickup yourself at someplace like MCM eletctronics

Does not read dvds correctly. It stops and pauses without playing correctly, as if it were skipping, but all of the discs are fine.


Make sure the unit isn't overheating. They have processors in them to decode the digital video. If there are any fans make sure they aren't clogged up with lint. Th unit shouldn't have and thing sitting on top of it or sitting on anything hot. If all that looks good try getting a lens cleaner one for CD players should work. Its just a disc that plays that has little brushes on it. Best of luck!

I have a philips hts6510 home theatre system and when i put a dvd in to play it says no disc


hi,
Normally a dvd player shows the message NO DISC when,
1. The disc inserted is bad.
2 The lase pickup unit inside the dvd lost its reading intensity, dirty lens or the spindle motor damaged .

In your case the second one happened. the intensity of the laser pickup unit has lost or the spindle motor faulty or there is some dust on its lens. just insert a cleaning cd in it for two or three times. then check again is the DVD is reading or not

if the problem remains then you have to check the motor and the laser pickup unit. the lase pickup unit have two laser emitter and receiver in its inside . one for reading and playing DVDs and the other for CD and MP3. also the spindle motor runs in different speed when u insert dvd and cd.

Open the cover of your dvd player and power it on insert an audio cd and watch is it reading or not also notice the speed of the spindling of the cd. if the audio cd reads and play. then the possible problem is the spindle motor

To conform it remove the audio cd and insert a dvd. watch the rotation of the dvd. if it feel very hard to rotate it then, the spindle motor is damaged. if so replace the spindle motor if it runs more the the speed of than audio cd then the laser pickup unit is faulty. Then u have to replace the laser pickup unit.
if you need any further assistance from me , feel free to contact me through fixya.
ok

"No Disc" message when trying to play DVD or music CD.


Try a "Laser Lens Cleaner" preferably one that uses fluid, run that thru the machine a couple times. You can find them at just about any retail store that sells CD's/DVD's or electronics. Next, if you have any liquid car polish, take a couple drops and spread on the surface of the disc. Use a microfiber towel to clean off. This helps clean off smudges and protects the disc from scratches. And it works great on damaged discs too! If your discs still do not play, then the unit needs to be repaired or replaced. Hope this helps

Dvd wont play ...each time you insert a DVD it shows DVD HO2...


I had the same Problem, player was only 13months old when the error HO2 appeared (typical huh?) anyway 2 years of this thing getting shifted from cupboard,wardrobe,attic, (did'n't want to throw it out cause it cost me £700), finally it came to fix it or bin it time. scoured the net to no avail, lost the rag and half dismantled it..then during all of this ( oops I'm going on a bit LOL)
you can hear a sound as though the disc is trying to be read, after 100's of attempts to get it to work, I finally noticed the disc had not changed position. (disc was not spinning) pointed to the Motor??
what I did to fix this was unplug from main's, remove top cover until you can see the top of the dvd disc, got hold of a pencil with a rubber on one end, plug back in, switch power on, and gently pushed top of disc ( clockwise ) and it kick started it off

that was over 3 years ago and the player is still going strong
I know its a bit rough, but nothing ventured nothing gained ;)
