DVD says no disc

When I put in a dvd in, the screen will say incorrect disc, or no disc. I can put in a cleaning disc in and the sound is perfect for the instruction?? It seems that when my sat. box is on it says incorrect disc, and when I turn that off it says no disc.

SOURCE: when i put a dvd in it says

If the player displays this message for every disk you've tried to play (presuming you've tried several) there is likely something wrong with the DVD mechanism and it needs to be repaired or replaced. Some would telll you to purchase DVD lens cleaner and try that, however, in my experience this is usually a waste of money. I have yet to see a DVD with a lens so dirty that it wouldn't play any disk until it was cleaned and then it played everything. If you're under warraty the repair/replacement will likely only cost you shipping of the player to an address you'd get from the manufacturer or your manual. If this is attached to your TV, you'll get in-home service if the screen is big enough. Oherwise you'll have to carry the unit in or ship it someplace for exchange/repair.

What does "incorrect disc" mean

It could be one of several things:
  • Dirty disc. Clean with outward strokes with a paper towel and water or Windex if needed
  • Dead DVD player
  • DVD may be for a region that your player does not support.
  • If the DVD is burned (home made), sometimes players are not forgiving and not all will play burned discs.

I have an Orion FTDV2004A tv/vcr/dvd combo. I was playing a DVD movie. When I paused it, it would not start playing again. Now, every DVD I put in, says "reading" and then "incorrect...

Just power OFF the set by its main power OFF switch, and switch in ON, while listening very close to its mechanism side and see whether there is any sound of disc spin. If disc do not spin inside the mechanism, due to a faulty sled motor, the fault you descrbes here will occur. If disc spins inside, and still it does not reads the disc, the laser pickup unit is faulty and should be replaced. OK.

When i put a dvd in the dvd player it just comes on screen saying theres no disc

Try cleaning the lens with a CD/DVD cleaning kit that you can buy at a local eletronics store. If you have tech skills, open the player up and clean the glass eye reader lens with some rubbing alcohol using a Q-tip. Make sure the DVD you are using is not too scratched up. If it still don't work after you cleaned it and tried different disc then replace the optical reader drive

DVD player cannot read DVD disc.

Have you tried other DVD's in this unit and they work? If so it might be just an incompatibility issue with that DVD in your TV.

Toshiba TV Combo MW24FP1, DVD player doesn't work on some discs

This is a common problem for all combo units. The high voltage of the TV section attracts large amounts of particulate dust from the air and often it collects inside the DVD unit. The best way to deal with this is to clean the lens of the DVD unit u sing a cotton swab and alcohol. The store bought "cleaners" MAY work, but that is rare. These cleaners are nothing but small brushes embedded into a disc. They attempt to brush off hte dust. This rarely works. Open up the unit (if you feel comfortabel in doing so) to access the DVD section. Remove the top cover and carefully clean the lens. That should resolve the problem.
