Try to use lense cleaner.........................


If that wld wrk, its perfect........................

You can replace the DVD drive with a new one. Liteon makes the original one. I replaced mine when it did the same thing. I used a Liteon 16X drive (overkill) to do so. It worked fine. Just do not update the firmware later for the drive. The original drive used a rubber belt for a drive and it stretches very quickly. You can also replace the belt on the drive but that is chancy. I would go for the drive replacement.

Hello schmidt755,

I am assuming this is a copied disc? Try it in a differnet DVD player, if it;s readable in another player the problem is the actual disc and not your player. DVD players are notorious for only reading certain disc types. If it's a dvd-rw it's most likely the player will NOT read it.

Hope this helps.

My DVD is showing "no disc"


The DVD drive may be unable to read the disc. If you try a couple of different DVDs and get the same result, it pretty much confirms drive failure.

Insert disk all i get i load then it eject disk


Well it seems that your DVD player is having an issue reading the disc, I guess the first question is what kind of disc are you trying to insert? Is it a burned DVD or is it a movie dvd? This model is not a Blu Ray so if you are trying to use a Blu Ray disc then it will not read it. If you are trying to read a burned disc from someone then more then likely the disc was not finalized and is unable to recognize the disc, because the finalization process is where all the the information is written about what kind of disc it is and the format, codecs, etc. OR maybe the laser is dirty or the DVD player has kicked the bucket. Finally, the product DESC says it can read DVD-RAM, DVD-RW, DVD-R, DVD+RW, DVD+R, VHS formats, but I have found that some DVD units do not like certain brands of Blank DVDs. I hope this offers some ideas for you and good luck!

Why is my portable dvd player is reading no disc when disc is in?


Over time the laser pickup becomes weaker until it is unable to read a disc. Try a dvd cleaning kit and follow instructions, or get a Q-Tip and rubbing alcohol and gently clean the lens, allow several minutes to dry. If this fails cheaper to replace the player.

The player just reads "disc error"


Hello,

If your DVD player keeps reading disc error, it simply means the player is unable to read.

The reason is that the lens of the player is weak and cannot play the disc.

The solution for you to completely replace the lens.

to replace the lens, get a replacement lens from an electronic shop,

get the appropriate screwdriver and unscrew the player,

open up the disc tray and carefully replace the lens,

ensure that you do not tamper with the panel of the player.

once the replacement is properly done,

couple back the player and test with a DVD disc.

take care

Insert any dvd any player says it cannot read and spits it out vcr will play fine just the dvd unable to read.


Could be simply the lens needs to be cleaned, if it is dirty it will not read the disc, try a lens cleaning disc or it could be a fault with the lens not being able to focus on the DVD, if this is the case a replacement lens is required.
