Hi most of the time a cleaning disk or canned air is not enough, you have to open your dvd player and clean you laser lens whit a cotton swabs and alcohol do not use peroxide. Do it slowly and be careful

bye and good chance.

Why will my CD's not play on my Wave music system?


it might be you need to get a cleaning disc that cleans the laser inside the cd drive.
or it could be the laser it self has gone faulty.
try a cleaning disc first and see how you get on.

Keeps telling me bad disk...the dvd works in another machine. What does this error mean?


Some players are better then others, try a different disc, if it plays then, player is fine, it's just not got a good enough laser eye to read the disc you want to play or laser eye is dirty. You might try cleaning laser ,player to see if that's problem. If it won't play other disks even after cleaning then it's time to replace player. Not sure what type disk your trying, dvd or blu ray, but I've noticed that dvd's play better in blu ray players, they have better laser eye for reading disc.

Pioneer dv-2010 dvd player makes a whirring noise


That's because the lazer on the tray is trying to read the disc. Does this happen to other discs? When the lazer can't read the file, the drive spins up the disc to help it read it.

Recently, my Curtis 1053 DVD player has stopped playing DVDs. It attempts to load them, and then says "Bad Disk". I know that the disks are not bad, because they play fine on other DVD players. I...


Over time dust and stuff can accumulate on the lasers that read the discs. You should try a dvd laser cleaner (its different then the disc cleaner you might purchase for a cd player). Its a disc that has a little brush on it. You insert it into the DVD player, you may need to run it 2 or 3 times, but when you use it, the little brush will clean the laser off. Another problem could be that sometimes the laser becomes mis-aligned, inhibiting the DVD players ability to read the discs. I would try the laser cleaner first as the only way to get the laser re-aligned is to take it to a service center and get it repaired. Our old PS2 stopped reading discs and my husband actually took the lid off of it and used a q-tip with some of the laser cleaner that comes with the dvd laser cleaner kit to clean the laser off - we're smokers and pet owners and it was just plain disgusting how dirty that little laser got! After that it ran fine and read all the discs that we thought had some how gone bad.

There are other possiblities too such as a bad laser motor, bad spindle motor (although I think this one is unlikely since you can hear it spinning) and other circuit related issues that can be causing your bad disc error. However these things would need to be diagnosed by an authorized service center.

I would say that as a general rule of thumb, if the cost of repairing exceeds 2/3 of the cost of a new unit, I would just buy a new one.

Player will not read discs. keeps saying "no disc" when discs are inserted. Worked fine until today.


Easy option first , clean laser with a laser cleaning disc ,if that doesn't work then (I assume you have tried more than 1 disc). a laser won't read a dirty disc, you may have a laser mechanism fault ie laser sticking in its tracks. you could try oiling the cradle that the laser sits on. other than that it is a costly repair.

Audiovox D2016 returning to the beginning during playback


the player is not able to read your disk ...if the disk is clean and it does the same thing for other disks as well then you probably have dust or debree on the laser ... on some players you can see the laser .. it looks like a little lens thats very springy ...you can clean it with a soft tissue wetted with eye glass cleaning fluid .. dont spray directly on the laser ...gently clean the laser lens .... if you cant see the laser with the lid open then you can purchase a DVD/CD cleaning disk ... that looks like a regular DVD but has little brushes mounted on it to clean the laser when you play it ....cleaning the laser usually works but if it doesnt then you could have a damaged or worn out laser .....just a single hair or particle is enough to keep the laser from working...

Not spinning disc
If it spins with a little help from yourself replace the spindle motor with improved motor, part number: RXQ0749A
Unable to detect discs
The laser head was the culprit. Replacing it fixed the problem. (Laser head code GRP6278A)
Difficulty reading cd, if it does read the sound is strange and sticks
Replace C101 (1000uF/16v)
