Question about Panasonic DVD-S75 DVD Player
My Panasonic DVD-S75 player has stopped reading discs. I can hear the disc spin, but the machine doesn't recognise the disc and "No Disc" appears on the display. Has anyone experience of this fault or can offer any suggestions about a fix?
SOURCE: No read error
I've had the "can't read disc problem" and "noise" when the
disc is turning. It's not the lens. The rubber pad/ring that the
CD/DVD sits on gets "dirty" and doesn't grab the disc well enough
and the disc slips. It's especially a problem when recording, because
it can ruin the discs, and make then unusable.
I took mine apart and cleaned the rubber ring and that solves the problem.
(for a while anyway) I think the rubber pad has hardened and lost it's grip,
so I have to clean it more and more often now.
1) Unplug it (I take all the cables off)
2) Take the top cover off (5 philips head screws) Don't touch any of the electronics.
3) Remove the blk plastic DVD reader cover CAREFULLY (6 philips head screws)
Don't move any of the parts on the cover or it's really hard to put back together.
4) Gently wipe off the rubber ring with a damp lint free cloth
5) Put the blk cover back on, plug it in, and test it with a disc take make it sure works.
6) Put the metal cover on and you're done.
I used to work as an electrical engineer so I feel comfortable taking this kind of stuff
apart. If you don't, you can buy a new one or have someone else clean it.

This happened to me. I bought a new hard drive. Just got it today! It must be the exact same one. Maxtor, 80G 133.
Type in the above HD and you will find it. Once you get it and install it, it will automaticly format itself.

You need to install or update the Firmware. Go to www.panasonic.ca and search your model. You will then need to download the firmware for your player and burn it/mount it as an ISO file on to cd. Just follow the instructions and you'll be up and running in no time.
It took me about 25min, but it is working fine now.
