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)

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.
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.
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.
You can try a CD/DVD Cleaner Disk ($3-$5). Some sell for $15, don't know if you'll get better results. If it doesn't work, then you have a laser alignment issue that needs calibrating. The labor is likely to cost more than a new DVD player.
hi angedembe, guess your dvd lens is dirty or worn out.try using a dvd lens cleaning disk this might solve your problem n if it still of no use then u have to change your dvd lens.hope the 1st method solve your problem.have a nice time.. raj..
1.bad rca jacks
2.could be connected to wrong audio lead rca jack
3.the settings in dvd player donot match the receivers example- dts or ntfs
4.make sure its regioned to your player some audio isnt on the disks
5.pc's usually have new cd formats that came out
cd's and dvd's for some reason in this age isnt being able to play fully in older equipment do to the change in cd/dvd formats which makes you go out and buy new equipment it happened to me not just 2 weeks ago bought a new dvd and found out it wouldnt play in my year old dvd deck had to go out and buy new dvd deck then disk and all my others played fine
Ok looks llike a lens problem..Try this Get a lens cleaner CD with liquid..Put two drops of liquid on the brush of the lens cleaner..insert the CD in your drive and play it..If it plays fine otherwise you will need to replace the lens..Get it replaced rather..should run you about 25-50$.If you want to get it repaired give it for repair only in a Philips showroom.. Good luck!
