HDD/DVD RECORDER DHR-8100Pp can't read dvd's

When a dvd is loaded into the machine the DVD menu displays ''No Disc''. We've tried air spraying the machine internally to remove dust but this has not solved the problem. Please advise?

Chances are the Laser that reads the disc has gone bad. It's usually cheaper to buy a new one instead of having it repaired.

What is the settings for playback?


There are no specific settings for playback on this machine?
If the lazer does not read discs and the display shows NO DISC or UNKNOWN DISC then the lazer pick-up needs replacing.
I believe that the lazer pick-up for this LG recorder has been discontinued?

Disc load problem


DVD players need a finilized disk. When the program finilizes the disk, it's writing the TOC which is where the players go to find the files.

Trying to record on a DVD-R , after several minutes trying to load i get a msg saying it can neither read nor play this disc , check disc,,please help


I've had this problem with trying to record on CD-Rs also. DVD and CD recorders can be very fussy. You just have to get a piece of dust or a fingerprint on the CD or DVD that's being recorded onto and it gets kicked back as a check disc or blank disc..

Another problem is some recorders will only accept certain brands. I've had problems recording onto a SONY CD-R with a SONY recorder! So, in summing up, try a different brand or make sure the disc is clean. Sometimes just taking the disc out and putting it back in in a different position will make the recorder think it's an OK disc. Hope this helps.

We have a govideo vr2940 and the dvd recorder does not copy vhs to dvd. the machine wont read the disk. we tried different types of blank dvd's but still says no disk. i found a solution that says...


I've had this problem (No disc) with my VR2940 and was preparing to open it up and find and clean the lens that detects the disc. This was suggested as a solution.
However, I used a can of compressed air (enviro-duster) and sprayed air in the drive slot (back and forth since I don't know where the lens is located).
No problem since, but I keep a can handy.

I have a Daewoo DHR-8115D DVD Recorder . When I record to HDD it works , but when I want to record to a dvd it wont . I cant even watch dvd movies which I have rented . Please assist !!


you cant record directly onto the disk, it records onto the harddrive. Click ''menu'' on the remote and the HDD videos and select a video/s the click dubbing, only works with DVDRW. To transfer it to your computer you need a dvd ripper

DVD will not recognise discs


I think that moisture has formed on the boards.

The best thing to do is to take the recorder
and put in a warm room,connect it and leave for 2-3 hours.
Then try with a disc again.

I hope i`ve helped!

DMR-EH75V DVD Recorder


ekimt,

Yes, it would not recognize any type of disc. The disc icon was always present on the display even though no disc was inserted. Also, mine went out while recording from HDD to DVD. Panasonic had mine repaired in two business days and it' s working great.

Disc read error


Sounds like the laser has gone or the try is not fully loading the disc.

Won't Read blank disc!!


I my DVD-HR735 wont recognise any discs at times, and is getting worse. I've now discovered (out of frustration) that if I tip the front up to between 30-45 degrees, it will play all the discs it says were unreadable. I've started jamming three dvd boxes under the front of the machine when i want to play dvds.
