    Hi Drumbanger:

    thank you for responding but the tip didn't help. I wipe over and around the lens, then gently tried to raise the lens. I also dropped it on a soft pillow. Please.... am I missing something?

    I also am having the same problem. My daughter might have touched the screen. I was looking at the time. It shows no disc. I have tried everything I know. Please help.

Dvd won't play my dvd's. keep saying no disc or wrong disc. what is the problem

  • Hi, Sounds like the lens is just really dirty. Go buy a leans cleaner disk and run it through the DVD player two or three times to get the lens good and clean. Repeat about once a month to keep the lens clean and running properly. Sometimes you need to run it through 3 or 4 times to get the lens to read again.

  • These disks I speak of have little bristles on it that "sweep" the lens clean. I use them on all my disk players and they work real well.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Regards, Tony

My memorex DVD player doesn't read the discs anymore. I cleaned the laser with alcohol and and a cotton swab. It will spin the disc for a while and then will say no disc. It's not the discs because I...

If you already tried to clean the laser lens and that did not work, it seems like the lens is defective. This product has a 90 day warranty so you'll need a copy of your proof of purchase in order to get a warranty replacement from Memorex.

The dvd player just says it is loading and never plays the disk


The reason your player keeps reading a disc but do not play it is either the lens is weak or dirty.

To fix it if it is dirty, all you have to do is to clean the lens with a lens cleaner.

To fix it, if the lens is weak,

  1. Get the appropriate screwdriver,
  2. Unscrew the cover of the player and remove it,
  3. Unscrew the disc tray, you will have access to the lens,
  4. Get a new lens and replace the lens,
  5. Reverse the process to reassemble the player.
  6. Test it with a DVD disc.
Take care

"Wrong disc" memorex dvd player error

Sounds like a build up of dust on the lens.

2 options -

Either buy a DVD lens cleaner

Note DVD LENS cleaner, NOT DVD Cleaner the latter is for the discs, not the player

or second option is to remove lid from your player (usually 5 or 6 screws) and gently swab the lens with a cotton bud or similar soft lint free product. Try not to push too hard on the lens or you may damage the mechanism.

The lens is really obvious as it faces upwards and looks like a small round clear glass bead.

Make sure its unplugged too!

My DVD Pler loads but in aminute or so it says no disc

Try another disc, does this happen with all discs? the optics are most likely failing, did you try a DVD lens cleaner and also try canned air?

My dynex dx-pdvd7 is showing "no disc"

If there is no little circle eye near the center of the spindle-you are out of luck. If you can see the lens it may be just jammed. Simply, gently, slide the eye along the track back to the spindle. That usually fixes it.
