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.

Re: no disc error showing up-takes 20 tries to bring up...

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.

I have a Philips Magnavox 20MC4304 20 in. TV/VCR/DVD Combo. But the DVD player shows some error. It said "playback feature may not be available on this disk" and it dosen't read the disk.

Try some other discs if you have not----If all show the same or similar error you have either a dirty or bad optical pickup in the player (it reads the discs).

Panasonic PV-20DF64 20 inch TV/DVD Combo TV can not read disc

If the disc loads up and you can hear it spin, then you get the error, more than likely the optical lens has been damaged. This will have to be repaired by a local shop if its worth the cost. if the part is available it would probably run anywhere from 130-165 to repair

Good Luck!

DVD player cannot read DVD disc.

Have you tried other DVD's in this unit and they work? If so it might be just an incompatibility issue with that DVD in your TV.

DVD player isn't loading and playing properly

Since it will play eventualy, I'd suspect a dirty lens. Open up the unit and carefully clean the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Also, try a music CD. If the CD works flawlessly but DVDs still fail occasssionally, the optics are starting to fail and will need to be replaced.

Wrong Disc

You now have a optical block problem. An alignment may do the trick, but you'll be out the estimate if it's a major repair and you refuse to dump more cash into it...accordianman
