Disc Error when I try to play a dvd LG DP781

I put the dvd in the LG DP781 8" portable dvd player, close the lid and the dvd spins for a few seconds sounding like it tries to read the dvd. The dvd stops, and ''disc error'' pops up on the screen. I can get my dvds to play sometimes. The majority of the time I can't get the dvds to play, and get the above mentioned error message. Please help!

    I'm sending the dvd player back to where I bought it. It does not play the dvds at all now. The LG people suggested sending it in for factory service because the eye/lens is damaged.

Hi,

Sounds like either a dirty or weak laser/lens. Pls try cleaning with a CD disc cleaner or manually using cotton buds (if the eye is accessible).

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Lg dp 781 is saying no cd when there is a cd in it and then sometimes it says disc error. we have played the cd's that are in it a million times before. help


Look closely, with lots if light and magnifying glass, at the pickup lense. Static attracts teeny tiny fibers and they bend the light and cause read errors. Also, smoking covers lense sometimes. Can be cleaned with rubbing alcohol and swab. I think that cd cleaning disks cannot actually clean as the lense is recessed.

DVD plays audio but no video? The LG screens comes on but the screen goes dark and only the audio plays. I ran the disc cleaner.


NO NEED TO CLEAN LENS, YOU HAVE A MOTOR PROBLEM, IN THIS CASE YOU WILL BE ONLY ABLE TO PLAY AUDIO DISK AND NOT DVD. BECAUSE OF FREQUENTLY USED, DVD DISK MORE SPEED ROTATION THEN NORMAL CD, SO CHANGE YOUR MOTOR AND CHECK IT WILL WORK......

Broken disk lid


Not sure if you can find a replacement lid but you may be able to play DVD's if you manually depress the small switch that the lid would engage if it were closed. The switch is located where the lid hinges at the right side, you should see a small rectangular hole. The switch can be depressed through that hole. Of cousre, your DVD will be spinning with no lid to protect it but just don't touch it while the disc is playing. When done playing, you can just turn the unit off or remove whatever you used to engage the small lid switch.

Stops Playing: screen freezes


My friend suggested I clean the dvd optical reader lens inside the player with a fine brush (like a camera brush with a blower bulb). This seemed to help immensely. I'm not certain if this is just a temporary fix, but it seems to be ok so far.
