" unknown disc, check disc" message

When I load a DVD to play or record it reads the disc and then ejects it and I receive a message that it is "unknown disc, check disc". It was working fine, then the next time I tried to play or record a disc I received the message. I also tried to call 1800-736-7679 and a recording tells me that I have reached an unassigned number try another number. That is the only number in the manual. I tried to resolve the problem by unpluging the DVD for at least 5 seconds. I even tried using the DVD sent to me some time ago to to upgrade. Nothing worked.

    I have the same problem. I have tried the same remedies and had no success. The machine will play a DVD+R disc but not a brand new out of the box movie.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, try to clean the lens using a CD disc cleaner. Additionally, verify that your blanks are either DVD-R or DVD-RW.

LG DVD recorder not playing DVD


When a unit does that it can be a fingerprints on a disc not letting it read the disc and or also that it is not finalized. Can also be a disc format that does not work on unit. Some units only work with either -R or +R and not both. Hope this helps

Wont play dvds, only cds, music and photos when dvd placed in tray, goes through reading process, then ejects tray with an on screen message, unknown disc! With all discs not a certain few. when a blank...


DVD & CD use different wavelengths for the read head. I suspect that the blue laser is out of alignment or otherwise in need of repair.

PhotoCD is a format.

MODEL LG RC299 NOT READING DVD VIDEO'S. ERROR COMES UP "UNKNOWN DISC.PLEASE CHECK DISC". PLAY'S OK PREVIOUSLY RECORDERED DISC'S,RECORDERED ON THIS UNIT.


I also have this annoying problem - but I bought mine new on ebay and have zero after-sales support. I have tried all the hacks I cna find over the last 12 months and when I am finished, the messages all say 'congratulations, you're now region free'. But even the local DVDs don't work. Disc ejects itself with irritating message 'unknown disc'. Does anyone have this problem who has a SALES RECEIPT from an authorised LG dealer? If so, can you jump up and down with LG until they offer a solution? Thanks!

Dvd "unknown disc" message coming up


Have you tryed to use a lens cleaning disc yet. The laser lens on these players and recorders alike, must have the lens cleaned every oince in awhile. If that does not help, most likly you have a bad laser pickup assembly and you will need to replace the plaer as to have that repaiered, you could buy a new unit. Good Luck
