No disc error showing up-takes 20 tries to bring up dvd

About 3 weeks ago the DVD Player started having trouble loading and telling me there was no disc in the slot; at first I thought it was a bad or cheap DVD- now all the DVD's take either 20 or more times of opening closing the loader to play. The funny thing is all of the CD's play no problem with Audio- and load the first time.

    Thanks- I will give that a shot first; and I didn't even think of cleaning it first. So much for perspective.

  • michelle martin Dec 28, 2006

    Your idea worked great! I had to clean it 4 times and finally just left it for about 10 minutes cleaning, but so far all of the DVD's I put in loaded with no problems. Thank you.

Maybe the laser is unable to focus on the smaller pits and lands of a DVD disk but can see the relatively large pits and lands from a CD just fine. This may be solved by using a CD/DVD cleaner disk. It's a disk with small brushes on it that attempt to brush dust from the laser's lense. They don't always work but that's what I'd try.

DVD will not load or play. Just keeps saying loading over and over


This probably means that your DVD player has a dirty lens or a tracking problem or both. If the DVD player has a tray, you can try putting an optical disc lens cleaner into the unit. (Slot-loading DVD units may not properly accept or eject the disc. So don't try a cleaning disc in that type of unit.)

Since most DVD players are cheap, it's usually better to replace the unit if the tracking is bad. Similarly, if a lens cleaner does not work, replace the unit. If the player is under warranty, contact the manufacturer.

I hope this helps.

Tries it with many other DVD discs,If u have the same result the DVD player Laser eye is having problems and it dying,not reading Data's from the DVD disc anymore.If not,that only DVD disc,that have problems,than check DVD disc for smushes,grims and cracks on the DVD disc itself.If it is the DVD player having problems with it Laser eye and it dying.The DVD player is junk not worth repairing.The DVD player sell really cheap these days,like $40 for a brand new one.

Just Loading - Bad Disc


Normally I would say clean the laser lens, but I actually had the exact same model with the exact same problem, and that didn't work. I was able to get mine to work sometimes by turning it off and on and unplugging it, but even after opening it up, re-lubricating the gears, and replacing a few capacitors near the reader, I never did find a permanent solution.
I guess this isn't what you wanna hear, but I think its an untraceable problem with the motherboard.

Hi -- my toshiba SD3990 model DVD player won't


Your DVD player is fu.k.d up.  These things are made so cheap now a days that it is more trouble to try to fix the thing, than going out and buying a new one.  You can try running a disc head cleaning kit through it first to see if that helps.

Player won't load any discs


I don't have a solution at this time. I have the same DVD player and mine stopped working this past weekend. It is doing the same thing as yours. I opened the case and loaded a disc and watched the mechanism. The disc won't spin. if you tap the disc it will start spinning and load and start playing. I thought I had fully fixed it. It will load most times but now the video and audio stutters as if the discs is spinning at varying rates.

Trouble Loading & Not Registering To TV


I can't say 100% but it sounds similar to the problem I had with the same model . The sleep mode in the on/off switch had gone bad and a new switch fixed the problem. It was about $42 to rtepair at my local electronics repair shop. Hope this helps.

Emerson PDE-2725N DVD player


My PDE 2625n worked on the way to Mimi's and starting on the way home it displayed "Disk Loading..." then errord out with "Bad Disk". I dug through the internet and over 3 days found the answer.

Your laser is tired. Since the DVD player is cheap, replacing it is not worth the $$. Fix it! Remove the back cover (about 10 small phillips screws). It is important to know that their is a back plate AND a back panel; remove the PLATE which should have a model number sticker.

Now you should see a circut board with a set of polished rails which holds the read head. On the read head (by a ribbon cable ) are two very, very, very small flat blade POT screws. These control the amount of power sent to the laser. Turn the right most one CLOCKWISE about a 1/8 to 1/4 turn.

You can test your handy work by popping in a DVD while the cover is off and seeing if it loads. If all is ok, put it back together. If not turn it a little more. I used a car battery charger to run my test since it's about 25 degrees outside.

Be aware the more power sent to the laser, the faster it burns out (according to my research). By feeling is the DVD player is broke, so what? Am I going to break it? What the hell;) and I cranked away.

BTW I just got this fixed this morning. My kids are screaming with joy for DVD's in the car again! I'm thrilled that I don't have to spend $100 or more to replace this unit.

Cheers!
