It is either your laser or the thing that spins the dvd so that it can be read. Is it one where the door pops up or slides open? If it is one where the door pops up, then try this: open the door of it and put the disc in. Then get something like a paper clip and unbend it. In the slot where a piece of the door is supposed to go to tell the dvd player if there is a dvd inserted, stick the paper clip in that area and see if the dvd spins. If it spins, it is a problem with the laser, and if it does not spin, them you may need a new motor or you may have to check the power cord that leads to the motor.
If yours has the door that slides out, check to see if you hear any noise of a dvd spinning. If not,then you will need to replace the motor or check the power cord to the motor. If it does spin it is also a problem with the laser. If it can spin, a laser cleaner can be used.It has bristles at the bottom of the cd used to clean the laser of dust and dirt. You can also try blowing on it, but do not touch it. This should work.

When you put in a CD cleaner or any CD for that matter. A CDROM will automatically initialize meaning it will spin the disc and try to read it. hence the min that you put in the CD cleaner and the lens TRIES to read it. the lens is already being cleaned.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Your description normally would indicate either a dirty or faulty laser/lens. Pls try to clean with the use of a CD cleaner.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

    The CD cleaner disc need not be read. It has a small protrusion with brush like membranes. The cleaner disc will brush over the lens and physically clean it.

    Hi again,



    Any updates or developments so far?

    Hi again,

    Appreciate the reply. Offhand, the only alternative left is to open the unit and perform manual cleaning. Might as well do some housekeeping and use a can of compressed air to blow out the dust and re-application of appropriate lubricant on the mechanism especially the guide rail of the lens carriage. Cotton buds maybe used on the lens/eye itself.

    Should this still be not corrective, then it would be a defective laser. Though it is replaceable/repairable, the cost may no longer be economical and perhaps you can consider other options such as purchase of a new unit. Sorry.

Disc inserted but NO DISK message appears


Try other discs to see if its still working properly...most likely the recording on the disc is not burnt properly or there's something wrong with the disc, (ie, scratched or surface dirt etc) or the DVD player just can't read the disc...for example can it read the type of disc(does it read dvd+r or dvd-r, or both?--- if i remember rightly)..... I've had discs that have had bad recordings but can still be read if placed into tray a particular way around... randomly try different positions, also cleaning disc as you go...depending on how desperately you want it to read the disc...could also be bad disc batch... there could be many reasons...

Since a week ago, the player doen't want to read bluray discs. It reads the dvds but not the bluray discs.


The DVDs use red light, and the blue rays use blue light, 2 systems. Have you tried a cleaning disc?

I purchased a toshiba portable dvd player and the disc is not spinning therefore reads no valid disc. I have put in a few discs still same reading? Any suggestions?


Hello
The Sled Motor is defective. this is the motor, whic spins the disc as it has been loaded properly. If the loader mechanism loads the disc properly into place and if the catch up magnet catches the disc in place, and still the dis do not spins, replace the sled motor. OK.

No disc


Hello,

has it been reading discs previously? If it has been reading discs previously, then it means the lens (laser) of your player is weak and that's why it cannot read disc.

You need to change the lens for it to be able to read disc again.

Good luck.
