It will still play CD but when I try a DVD (that has worked before) it will make sounds like it is starting to read but then you can hear head seeking and then it reports "NO DISK" on the display and the TV will show "Insert Disk".
If a CD is in one of the other slots, it will start playing the CD instead of the DVD that was inserted.
If you are good at repairs.dismantle the Disk drive unit carefully from the main carriage and if the Optical lens reading unit has got a drive P C B ,then desolder the PCB so that you have only the CD mechanism on your table,with a Digital Multimeter check the Ohmic values of both the Spindle motor and Sled motor. the resistance should read between 4.5 ohms and 8ohms any value beyond this means that the drive signal voltage is not enough to move /rotate the disc and optical-pickup in syncronisation.you can get the drive-motors replaced,or replace the CDM assly available off the shelf.
this should solve the problem.hundreds SONY DVD players are running with this remedy.

Make sure you have a non home made DVD. Some DVD players will not play DVD'S in certain formats.
If you have a normal DVD in the DVD player and are getting "NO Disk" then there is a real good possibility the lens is just so dirty that it is not recognizing your DVD at all. This happens a lot to all disk players that are neglected from the cleaning process. Get a disk player cleaner and run it through a few times until the disk is read again. Sometimes the lens is so dirty you have to try a few times just to get the cleaner disk itself to play just to do the actual cleaning. Make sure to run that cleaner disk through once a week. These disk cleaners "sweep" the lens and work well. You can get one at your local Best Buy for $8usd.
The last thing it could be is that somehow the lens has come out of alignment. Just a millimeter out of alignment is all it takes to not be able to read a disk and DVD players get bumped and knocked off the shelf easy. So this can happen often especially with the more smaller travel DVD player.
No Disk issues on device players like DVDs are caused by the following problems
Dirty Play Heads (Optical lens)
Bad CDs or scratched CDs on the surface
Non Compatible CD formats such as DVDs that are designed for some geographical regions and play formats
Also low electrical current is a major problem too
Your issue could reside amongst any of these problems
Check your DVD compactible play formats if its compactible with the CD you want to play.
If its compactible, then I suggest you get a CD Cleaner to clean to clean to Lens.
Also check your current output and if low, get a voltage stabilizer
Check the surface of the CD if its scratched and get a replacement.
Hi, sounds like you have a dirty laser eye on the DVD player. The eye gets dirty and it won't read movies or function properly. I would recommend a DVD Cleaner CD. I would have you try this before I have you open the DVD Player to clean the Laser Manually. Please try this and Post the Result for me to Review. Thank you
Mine started doing this just the other day and stopped playing the DVD it was playing. I found a solution for a portable player that worked on this one. You need to open it, eject the tray and slide the laser carriage back and forth all the way two or three times gently and by grabbing on to plastic that hooks around the metal bar on the right if you are facing the player from the front. Then plug it in and play a CD all the way through and this recalibrates the laser.
I wonder how many people throw away their DVD players when this is all it needs. Makes me sick to think about it.
Ok looks llike a lens problem..Try this Get a lens cleaner CD with liquid..Put two drops of liquid on the brush of the lens cleaner..insert the CD in your drive and play it..If it plays fine otherwise you will need to replace the lens..Get it replaced rather..should run you about 25-50$.If you want to get it repaired give it for repair only in a Philips showroom.. Good luck!
