Re: No disc message on DVD Player

What you might want to try before giving up would be to get a lens cleaning disc. If that does not work then you may have to take off the top, locate where the small laser lens is, and with a small cotton swab, soak slightly in alcohol, and in a swirling motion, clean the laser lens, now with the dry end, do the same. Wait a few minutes for all the residue to dry. Plug in the unit, and see if you made any differance. If you did GREAT!!. If not well at least you tryed, and there is not alot more you can do as a consumer, without test equipment, or speacial jigs. It most likly will not be worth taking into a repair shop, as these days these players are almost a dime a dozen!. Good Luck Ps Please do not forget to rate this.

My dvd player (Sony dav s500 system) kept freezing and now always says"disc is dirty" and wont play. Can I connect another dvd player to the system? How would I connect the 6 speaker cables into the new...

Umm, this isn't just a DVD player, It.s an amplifyer too. Just leave the speaker cables alone, plug in the new dvd player into the "video2" jack, yellow cable onlt. Then,plug the audio cables into the video2 jacs (the red and white ones). Select "video2" on the SonyDAVS300 and "video2" on the tv. Insert the dvd into the new player and enjoy. It's screwy but it works through the amp and sends the picture to the tv.

Cannot get "Test Mode Menu" with remote

Press and hold mute and return on the player and turn the volume control clockwise, the setup menu will appear after a few seconds.Go thru the menu and do the required disc calibration.Do not mess with settings you don't understand, else you'll create more problems than you solve.Have some good single,double layer DVD ,SVCD and CD for the calibration.

No Disc

Stumpy, I think the first step could be to find out between the DVD player and the disc which one has a problem.If the DVD Player is able to play other discs then it is possible the problem is with the disc only. If that disc can be played quite alright in other DVD players then the problem is with your DVD Player. I suggest you trial that first. I think the indication of " No disc insert disc" could be that your DVD Player is failing to load or read the disc either because the disc has some scratches or because your DVD Player lens are not powerful enough. I am, Letsthank.
