Wrong disk problem

The dvd player used to play perfectly well any dvd or cd I tried. But nowadays whenever I tried to play a dvd of cd it will take a good while loading and afterwarts it will say "wrong disk". I have allready tried the solution posed in the manual without any luck. Could it have anything to do with the lens or something?

Thank you found the laser moved back and forth on tracks, seemed to click into place closer to centre of disc, also gave the laser a good clean with alcohol ( morgan's rum) what a waste. cheers

My norcent DVD player DP 315 was saying wrong disk for a long time. Then when I read the above post and unscrewed my DVD player to move the lens. There was a DVD stuck in the back of the DVD player. LOL so check your equipment out before you throw them away or buy new ones.

There is a coil spring on the right side, right next to the laser (you need to slide the lense back to get to it). All you need to do is GENTLY pull the coil back towards the laser (away from the center), not too far, just a little ways, and that fixes the problem. That coil is the censor that tells the laser that it is all the way to the center. If it has coiled in too far, the laser doesn't know it is all the way forward, and it will be stuck saying "wrong disk". If you do it wrong, you will know. it will make a lot of noise as it keeps on moving towards the center, rather than stopping.

My co-worker bought this portable DVD player for his daughters, and had this problem. We *just* fixed it, so I decided to tell you how to fix it while it was fresh on my mind.

Then lens may need a damp isopropyl alcohol qtip run over it a few times, use 90%. If that doesnt work then try a cd cleaning disk to put in the player. The cd or dvd may also be too scratched to read.

Whenever i put a disk in my mxt dvd player it loads and just comes up with no cd.


You said disk. If you have tried different dvd movies then I would suspect a dirty or weak laser. If it plays dvd's ok but wont play certain cd's then I would suspect a compatability issue. You can try one of those laser cleaners at most dept stores or if you take it apart (with it unplugged) the laser is located where you put the disk in and it has a small plastic lens you can clean with a q-tip and alcohol. If that doesnt help the laser is probably bad, depending on the player it would probably be cheaper to purchase a new player.

Problem with reading disk


hello,

the reason your player will not play any disc is because there is a problem with the lens.

it is either weak or dirty.

try to use a lens cleaner, if it is dirty, after using a lens cleaner,it will work perfectly.

if it does not work after using the lens cleaner, then you try to replace the lens completely.

it will work work perfectly again.

take care

I can burn the cd no problem its a video of my


Ken --

You probably made a perfect copy of your wedding day (congratulations!)... the problem with burnt DVD's is the player they are played on. For WHATEVER reason, -R and +R disks seem to play better on old or cheap or portable (or a combination of all three) players than on the super-nice ones. I have burnt hundreds of DVD's, and I have yet to get but a handful to play on my "nice" DVD player... instead, they play perfect on the kid's one that we strap to the car headrest for roadtrips...

Ok... if there is a solution:

#1 - Buy good media, the lower the quality the more chance for error (slightly imperfect thickness = vibrations during burning, etc)

#2 - Try lowering your burn speed to 2.4x, seems to add to odds of being read by better machines

#3 - Are you finalizing your disks? Many computers can "get around" an un-finalized disk, but a DVD-player has a much harder time. Check with your burning software's help menu to be sure and "finalize" or "close" the disk when done

#4 - Have you tried a different burning app? Sony's "Vegas" software is unmatched in quality (but a bit expensive) , but cheaper apps like "VSO DivxToDVD" can convert .avi files to burn-ready video files, which can then be burnt with my all-time favorite burning app, "DVDFab 5"

Whew! I hope something in this helps!

If you have further issues, comment to this thread and Iwill be happy to assist you!

Hello gjbrokke,

First make sure the disc is compatible with the dvd player (CD-R+ , or CD-R - )

Second make sure the region code of the dvd you burned is compatible with the dvd region settings on your dvd player.

One of those two are preventing the disc from playing in your sansui player.

CD's and DVD's has different speeds try to check your dvd player/rom if it is compatible with your cd/dvd disk. Some dvd players are sensitive it will not play perfectly if your cd's are scratched. try to use new cd's. It might work.

Try playing a regular CD first and take it out if it played. Then put the DVD and it will play fine because the player just realign its lense. Hope it will help

"loading" then "no disk"


You might as well just replace the player, the cost to repair is more than a new one.

The laser has become damaged/worn-out. There is no fix for it as replacement parts are not made for it.
