I have this problem.. I put in a DVD that I know it has read ok before. But, now it takes a long time trying to load and then it just stops trying and returns 'NO DISK" So, I opened it up and watched it try to load. The motor on the DVD drive was struggling and couldnt keep the disk spinning a the correct speeds. Now, I am looking for a drive replacement. I hope this helps.

I have a Digital Home Theater HT-DS400 Samsung. I have problems in reading a music CD or a DVD. You can read the message "Loading.." for a while and then stops and reads "NO DISC". ...


  • Make sure you have a non home made DVD. Some DVD players will not play DVD'S in certain formats.
  • If you have a normal DVD in the DVD player and are getting "NO Disk" then there is a real good possibility the lens is just so dirty that it is not recognizing your DVD at all. This happens a lot to all disk players that are neglected from the cleaning process. Get a disk player cleaner and run it through a few times until the disk is read again. Sometimes the lens is so dirty you have to try a few times just to get the cleaner disk itself to play just to do the actual cleaning. Make sure to run that cleaner disk through once a week. These disk cleaners "sweep" the lens and work well. You can get one at your local Best Buy for $8usd.
  • The last thing it could be is that somehow the lens has come out of alignment. Just a millimeter out of alignment is all it takes to not be able to read a disk and DVD players get bumped and knocked off the shelf easy. So this can happen often especially with the more smaller travel DVD player.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

How to solve disk read error


If you are getting a disk read error message with any of these devices listed then just follow the instructions at the bottom.
House stereo
Car stereo
Car dvd
Dvd player
Blue ray player
Computer
Games console
Or anything else that uses cd or dvd.

The first thing you need to do is go out and by a cd or dvd lense cleaning kit you can buy thse from most computer stores or electronic hardware stores make sure you dont buy the cheapest one you see as these tend not to do any good and can cause more harm than good, so go for a mid range to high end one.
Run this disk in your player and this will then clean the lense of any dust or grime that has built up over time this should then solve your problem.

If after doing this you still have the problem then this would indicate that either the laser unti has over heated due tp build up of dust or it gas reached the end of its working life and needs replacing.
The problem you have with this is unless its a high end player or games console then the chances are it would cost more to repair then it would to replace the whole player

DVD player wont play disks


hi, if your dvd player is giving you disk error message or no disk message then the chances are the laser lense needs cleaning.

What you need to do is go to any big computer store and purchase a dvd lense cleaning disk, dont buy the cheapest one as they tend not to work so go for mid range or top end one.
Then all you need to do is put this disk into your dvd player and it will then clean the lense for you and should solve your problem.

If how ever you still have the problem then try different disk in it to ensure the dvd your trying is working ok if after doing this you still have the problem then the chances are the laser unit itself is no good and needs replacing.
The problem with this is unless your dvd player is built into the telly then the chances are it would be cheaper to go out and buy a new dvd player as the cost of repair would more than likely cost more than the cost of a new dvd player

I have a Phillips LX3950W home theater system. On the display it reads "No Disc" (dvd movie) When I take the disc out I can play it on the other DVD machine, it doess this not with all the...


The player works speed sensor for drive. Home produced or scratches videos are harder for it to read and if after a certain time interval of not being able to read it the player goes to a default(No Disc). A lot of times this is a mechanical problem which can be solved by lubricating the rod that the laser reader rides on as well as the DVD holder which grabs the disc, I use silicone lube. It does require removing the cover of the unit and removing part of the drive. Good luck..

Dvd sometimes reads error


If this problem occurs only at this dvd it's a disk problem. If it occurs on various disks try using a cd/dvd cleaner set, a wet one is better. Follow the instructions on the set. The main idea is to put one drip of the included liquid at the set (usually isopropyl alchohol) at a specific place (like small brush) on the disk surface and play this disk. That way the "brush" will clean up the laser lens and after that the cd/dvd player will be able to read the disks. BE CAREFULL not to put too much liquid on the "brush".

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

DISC ERROR OCCURING TIME AND AGAIN


If this problem occurs only at this cd/dvd it's a disk problem. If it occurs on various disks try using a cd/dvd cleaner set, a wet one is better. Follow the instructions on the set. The main idea is to put one drip of the included liquid at the set (usually isopropyl alchohol) at a specific place (like small brush) on the disk surface and play this disk. This way the "brush" will clean up the laser lens and after that the cd/dvd player will be able to read the disks. BE CAREFULL not to put too much liquid on the "brush". In case you can, use a Q-tip with isopropylic alchool to clean up the cd lens manually. In case this don't solve your problem, the cd player needs laser lens replacement by a technician.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

LG HDD/DVD player - navigational error message


HI,
DVD shrink can't handle the copy protection on the disk you're trying to backup, use DVDFab decrypter first instead.
Get it here:
http://www.dvdidle.com/download/DVDFabDecrypter29.exe

Use DVDFab to rip the files to your HDD, it will create a VIDEO_TSfolder and put all the video files in it. DVDFab is a whole movieripper only, so you're getting everything on the disk ripped to you'reHDD, once DVDFab is done, run DVD shrink. Use DVD shrink to open thefiles created by DVDFab (use the open files tab and browse to theVIDEO_TS folder created by DVDFab and choose it), at this point shrinkwill import the files, use shrink as you normally would to create yourbackup.

Easy and inexpensive to repair. not laser at all. disks are not spinning at the correct speed, clean the round rubber seal that pushes against the disk with 100% alchohol.
