    Sony DVP-NS405 similar problem i can hear the laser trying to operate but the disc is not spinning and after 30secs(approx) a message reads"Cannot Play"

  • tdmiller99 Apr 12, 2008

    Starts up but won't spin the disc. Player states "No Disc". Is this something I can fix myself and where do I purchase replacement parts if I need them? I used a dvd cleaner thinking it was dirty. It was a gift from my son in the military and because of limited space while traveling, he couldn't bring the box. I have no receipt. HELP!

    I am having the same issue. When I put a disk in, it sounds like it is working however when I open the lid, there is no movement. I am also getting a message that says No Disc.

If a disc wont spin or start to spin is an indication that the lens is not focusing on the serface of the disc. Try cleaning the lens with a lens cleaning disc. If that does not work, clean the lens manually with a damped cotten swab with alcohol and see if that helps. If it does not, it needs an alighnment of the tracking / focus offsets or gains and your going to need special equipment to do that alighnment. it most likly will not be worth the expense. Good Luck Please dont forget to rate this thread.

I'm afraid you are dealing with a weakened Laser on the unit. The cost vs. benefit ratio of fixing this unit is not worthwhile.

You will find that there are newer versions of this device on the market less expensive than what you paid for the unit you have now.

Does not spin dvd


Sometimes the brushless motor driver circuit fails. Rarely does the motor itself go bad. On some models, if the the laser diode is too weak to read the disc, the player will not bother to spin it. It won't spin so a lens cleaner disc won't work You can try to take it apart and clean the tiny lens. Don't use alcohol. Windex and a Q-tip works great to remove grease and dirt. Don't buff it hard. Just wipe lightly a few times and look at it at an angle to make sure it is shiny, not hazy. Almost all of these are not an economically viable repair. If cleaning the lens does not help, you are looking at another portable player.

I purchased a toshiba portable dvd player and the disc is not spinning therefore reads no valid disc. I have put in a few discs still same reading? Any suggestions?


Hello
The Sled Motor is defective. this is the motor, whic spins the disc as it has been loaded properly. If the loader mechanism loads the disc properly into place and if the catch up magnet catches the disc in place, and still the dis do not spins, replace the sled motor. OK.

No disk message


Hello
Check it with a standard company burned disc. if it does not read it, make sure that either the disc does not spins inside, or the laser pickup unit is faulty. Just open the top cover of the set, and insert the disc, see whether it spins at high speed at first and then slows down. if the disc do not spind, the sled motor is faulty. If the disc spins, and still the player do not read disc, the laser pickup unit should be repalced.

My CD player keeps displaying no disk and wont play the cleaner disc, is something dirty or broken?


Hello
If it does not play the cleaner disc, just inspect whether the disc inserted in spins inside it. You can check this by open the upper cover of the player, and inserting a disc into it. If inserted disc spins inside, and the player won't read it, the fault is with its laser pickup unit, and it should be replaced with same type and number.
If the disc dos not spins, the fault is with the sled motor [the motor that spins the inserted disc], has damaged, and should be replaced. OK.

Wat should i do when is displays no disc


Hello
If your DVD player shows no disc, even a disc is inserted, try to clean its laser head assembly, by inserting a cleaning disc in it and play atleast three times. Take it ejected each time before you play it. If it does not helps, open the top cover of your DVD player, insert a disc, and notice if the disc spins or not. If disc spins, and not reads, the laser picup unit of your DVD player is faulty, and should be replaced with same type and number. If its stripe wire connected between pickup unit and main board is detachable, try repalcing the strip wire first. In some occations, bad strip wire will show this type of problem.
If disc does not spins, the sled motor [the motor that used to spin the disc at high speed], is damaged and shoud replace it. OK.

"No Disk" message on front display


If when you insert the disk you hear a whirring and clicking noise, CD spins, and does not read, then that is a problem with the DVD lens.

The DVD lens try to focus on the DVD track, by moving lens pickup and spinning the disk, but cannot read the tracks because the lens is dirty or defective.

Try first cleaning the lens with a DVD cleaner disk. And also if you can see the lens from the outside try blowing some canned air on it.

If this still does not help, then the lens pickup may be faulty, in this case you often replace the whole DVD drive unit inside the DVD player.

Dvd player will not spin disk


Unfortunately, your DVD player is broken. Portable units like these often get bumped and jostled and the motor that spins the DVD quits (very small and fragile). Sorry, I wish there were a magic button.
