My bose lifestyle 48 system suddenly stopped playing new DVDs...is there a problem with the head..I bought it only in 2008


is the discs just spinning and then stopping when you put them in the drive?
there may be a chance that the lens might just needs cleaned. suggest a dvd lens cleaner but on the down side there is a strong possibility it may be a faulty lens. dvd players aren't built to last.
always clean the dvd player from dust and keep in an open space.

DVD Player Error Message


I have this problem.. I put in a DVD that I know it has read ok before. But, now it takes a long time trying to load and then it just stops trying and returns 'NO DISK" So, I opened it up and watched it try to load. The motor on the DVD drive was struggling and couldnt keep the disk spinning a the correct speeds. Now, I am looking for a drive replacement. I hope this helps.

DVD Player Problems


Me three, same thing, reads 'no disc' or just won't play it. I have found that it happens more frequently on rental DVD's and that running a cleaner cd through several times helps but eventually that will even stop working. No idea what the problem is

DVD Player turns on spins says reading but there is no picture or sound.


I had same problem and once left the player on for 3 weeks (left for vacation) and it still never worked. Finally had to dissassemble body of player to get dvd out. There appears to be no solution to this problem. I have called it quits and this cheap piece of junk is now in the trash. Koss will never be on my list of best buys.

Bad Disc


If you sure that the system supports the disc's format, the disc is clean, and its the right region.. try to clean the DVD lens. DVD lens cleaning discs: Every CD, stereo equipment, department, discount, store - and even sidewalk venders - carries CD lens cleaning discs. Are they of any value? Can they cause damage? I generally don't consider CD lens cleaning discs to be of much value for preventive maintenance since they may just move the crud around. However, for pure non-greasy dust (no tobacco smoke and no cooking grease), they may not hurt and could even do a good enough job to put off a proper cleaning for a while longer. However, it's also possible they will ruin the lens. Consider that the worst thing to do to a precision optical surface is to wipe it with a dry cloth as this is likely to scratch the surface as it rubs the dust over it. To the lens, a speck of dust is like a boulder. Once the lens is scratched, replacement of the entire optical pickup is the only remedy. And, since there are absolutely no sorts of standards for these things, it is possible for a really poorly designed cleaning disc to damage the lens even if the dust itself is non-abrasive. In addition, if the cleaning disc doesn't look like a CD to the optical pickup or disc-in sensor, the lens it may not even spin. So, the drawer closes, the drawer opens, and NOTHING has been accomplished! (But at least no damage will be done.) As if this isn't enough, NEVER put one into a high-X CDROM (DVD player or DVDROM drive). The high speed rotation may cause the cleaning disc and/or player/drive to self destruct. And, don't try a cleaning disc on an automotive CD player that sucks in the disk - it will get stuck.
