Question about LGDVT418 System

1 Answer

DVD's won't play

I've had my LGDVT418 for just over 3 years now. Last week I put a CD cleaner in my DVD player and now I'm having problems. You can hear it trying to turn the DVD's but it seems like its not getting the right amount of turning speed on the disc to display the picture or something. You can hear it spinning the DVD's, but it sounds like its not spinning them fast enough. It will play CD's but not DVD's. Now here's the weird part, if I put a DVD in it that I haven't watched yet it will play that disc. But any DVD movie that I've watched prior to putting in the CD cleaner disc, it will not play. I'm not ready to buy a blue ray yet as they still don't have digital tuners in them. Any suggestions on how to fix this promblem or where I can buy just the DVD player would be greatly appreciated. If there are other LG DVD players that are compatible with the speakers for the LGDVT418 that would also help.

I have a somewhat similar problem, but wasn't after a cleaning disk use. Most of the time when I try to use this system now, after I put a DVD in, I start getting a loud buzzing noise (almost as if gears are meshing)

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.

I have a (jvc dvd digital cinema system th-s3). that will not play original dvds however it seems to play copies and cds just fine in fact all other functions work correctly. i have tried a lens cleaning...


I have the same system. I've had no trouble until a year ago, then the system got particular about when it wanted to play DVDs. I've also used lens cleaner to no avail. It plays some DVD's but plays all CD's and some copies. It has given me good service but cost me a lot of money. I hope there is a simple solution to this.

My RCA RTD317 has problems recognizing most DVD movie disks. It will play some disks most of the time and all audio disks, so I figure the lasers are working. What could be the problem?


If you've tried cleaning the Laser with a Lens Cleaner Disk or directly with Lens Cleaner Fluid and a QTip without any improvement then the Laser is Failing.

It takes less power to read some DVDs than others and a lot less power to read an Audio CD. The Laser will continue to deteriorate until it won't play anything.

I got an Sony HCD S 300 Home Theater set recently. As I put in dvds and cds for playing, the dvd player says NO DISK. Thinking it is because it is not a original dvd it isn't working, I put another DVD...


It could be down to the Region of the Player or the Laser is Failing. As it doesn't play CDs then I suspect the the Laser is Failing (almost failed if it plays a cleaner but not CDs).

Wont stop reading "no disc" on the display even


If it will play a CD but not a DVD then it could be the Laser is failing. If it won't play either then its more than likely that the Laser has failed.

First thing though is to try cleaning it with a Lens Cleaning DVD.

If after this it still won't recognized a DVD you need to remove the Main Cover followed by the DVD Tray cover. You can then clean the lens directly with some lens cleaner fluid and a QTip. Make sure you only use a little cleaner fluid and wipe off with a dry QTip. Do not touch the lens with your fingers.

After you've reassembled the unit if you still have the same fault then the Laser has failed and would require replacing, although this is not normally cost effective.


Please leave feedback

Cheers

It wont play dvds!!! Help!!! Panasonic SC-HT520


You can try a CD/DVD Cleaner Disk ($3-$5). Some sell for $15, don't know if you'll get better results. If it doesn't work, then you have a laser alignment issue that needs calibrating. The labor is likely to cost more than a new DVD player.

Ok looks llike a lens problem..Try this
Get a lens cleaner CD with liquid..Put two drops of liquid on the brush of the lens cleaner..insert the CD in your drive and play it..If it plays fine otherwise you will need to replace the lens..Get it replaced rather..should run you about 25-50$.If you want to get it repaired give it for repair only in a Philips showroom..
