Question about Sanyo DVW-6100 DVD Player/VCR

Won't read DVD's

When I put my dvd into my player it starts to read. After an extended period of time it stops and says 'NO DISK'. I pulled the casing off and wiped the eye with a Kleenex tissue, but it still doesn't work. I noticed that the disk isn't spinning at any point. We started having this problem a couple of days ago, but sometimes it would work just fine.

    mine reads cd's and dvd's but will not read a blank dvd. Says 0 available and 0 used. This happened a couple of years ago and found the solution but now I forgot how I fixed it. It was a software problem. Any ideas?

I discovered that is was dust covering the sensor. It's not easy getting to it, but you can. I took the DVD system out of the casting and flipped over looked in with a flashlight and noticed the dust. Using a flat thin instrument, such as the end of a flat spoon handle and tissue wrapped around you are able to clean the sensor. Only a mother whose child is upset that his DVD doesn't work, would come to this kind of solutions, but it worked.

Hi, am Mr.Varghese. I have LG dvd which is 1-2 yrs old. Problems are:- 1) DVD - not playing at all 2)VCD - Playing but stucks after 3-5 mins 3) MP3/Audio CD - Afer 1 song is over it restarts from the...


Hello Mr. Varghese,

Your LG dvd player's lens might need cleaning. It is having a hard time reading those cds that is why it sometimes skips or just stops in the middle of playing them. Does this happen also to new cd's? Sometimes cleaning those cds helps the lens reading them.

If you have a disk cleaner, you can run that for 30 seconds on your player. It that does not help, then you might need to open your DVD player's casing and clean the lens manually by opening your player, get a soft cotton earbud and damp in an alcohol and gently wipe your dvd's lens. Then try to return back everything and test playing cd.

Samsung DVD player when disc put in after trying to load it comes up with a message disc error on all discs


it can be two possibilities. 1)either the disk is faulty.check out in another player or drive and confirm whether the disk is properly working. 2)or the lens in the drive which reads the disk is either faulty or got dusty.in the electronics shop you get lens cleaning cd.insert that in your drive and play it.it will spin for a period of time and stop.then insert your dvd disk and check out if the same problem.then drive inner lens is faulty and needs replacement.

Wrong disk


I looked at everybody's ideas, and none of the ideas seemed to fit my situation. My DVD player has been working fine for one month. I got a new DVD today in the mail. It froze, and then began to display the WRONG DISK message. Then, nothing would play on the player, All of the DVDs that had worked fine before, now would not play. They all said WRONG DISK. I tried reaching under and trying to clean the laser lens, but that did not fix the problem. I am not saying that this will fix your problem, but this is what fixed mine.

1. Place the DVD player on a table

2. Plug in the DVD player.

3.Push the OPEN button so that the DVD platter extends outside of the player (It now looks like it does when it is ready for you to put a DVD in it to play it.)

4. Unplug the DVD player. (Now the power is off, and the platter is still extended.

5. Remove the cover of the DVD player being careful not to damage the extended platter.

NOTE: With the platter extended, looking slightly from the rear, under where the DVD is spun, you will be able to see the Laser lens. It will be covered by the mechanism that spins the DVD. The lens will be connected to a mechanism that that has two rails on either side.

6. Grasp the plastic surrounding of the laser lens area and pull the entire mechanism toward the rear of the DVD player.

CAREFUL: DO NOT YANK THE MECHANISM BACKWARDS as this will break off the laser unit. This mechanism is being moved with the resistance of many gears. PULL SLOWLY AND FIRMLY, and the entire mechanism will move on the rails until the laser unit is clearly visible to you and completely from under the spinning mechanism.

7. Since the lens was clearly visible now, and easily accessable, I carefully and lightly cleaned the lens with a Qtip and alcohol.

8. Replace the cover on the DVD player

9. Place a DVD on the platter.

10. Plug in the DVD player

You will find that you no longer get the WRONG DISK message and your DVDs will now play properly. As I said, just reaching under and cleaning the laser lens did not seem to fix the problem. It was only when I moved the entire laser unit from under the spinning mechanism, and forced the DVD player to realign itself when it powered on, did the DVDs begin to play again.

H02


This weekend we were watching a movie. It started to skip. I thought it was a dirty disk, took it out, cleaned it with a dry cloth and put it back. Now nothing will play.

When I insert a disk it starts to revolve the machine says reading, two zeros appear and the it stops. My wife noted a message H02 and the manual says to call for an explanation.

We tried turning the machine off and on and we tried pulling the plug -- no luck. What is the problem?? Jeff

LG RH177 - Problem after playing American Gangster Extended Version


I had the SAME problem...sort of. American Gangster UR got to a real cliff hanger of a place, and then would go no farther. When I tried to push a forward arrow, it started rewinding. When I put another DVD in my player to see if it was the DVD or my player, it ruined THAT DVD too. Now I get the message "DISC ERROR," no matter what I play, so I have two broken DVDs and one broken DVD players! HELP!
