Question about Pioneer NS-DV88 System

1 Answer

Doesn't Play DVD's

When I insert a DVD, the system will attempt to read the DVD and then eventually the system kicks out the DVD and says, "No disc" on the display. The system plays CD's okay, but not DVD's. I took it to a repair place and they said it was not worth repairing. Is there a reset button or something on this?

I have made several attempts to play a disc on my JVC TH-V70. IT reads 'reading' on the dvd unit then after a few second the disc ejects. Why is this happening?

Hi Adrienne - If it only happens to the one DVD it is most likely a problem with the DVD being damaged or dirty.

If it's happening with all your DVDs your player laser lens is probably dirty or it might be damaged. If no discs are being read get yourself a CD/DVD cleaning disc and run it a couple of times (following the directions). Of this doesn't work you will have to decide if the player is worth the price of a repair (unless it's still under warranty). Most aren't as you can buy decent players for less than $50. Any repair will cost at least that.

If it is the one disc I suggest you take a clean soft cloth and wet it slightly with plain water and the give it a few strokes across the disc (not in circles), let it try dry for a few minutes and try it again. Also examine the disc (bottom) for any obvious scratches or stuck on gunk.

Good Luck and thanks for using Fix Ya.

I have a Samsung DVD-R155. When I insert a DVD, the screen reads "load", but eventually it screen will say it can't read the DVD, and then ejects the DVD. It doesn' t matter if it is a new or used DVD. I...

Try using a DVD scanner eye cleaner. It is aDVD with a brush grafted to it. I suspect the scanner eye is dirty so it cannot read the boot starp properly and so ejects

DVP-NS30 shows "CANNOT PLAY" message when DVD inserted

Follow this procedure to troubleshoot if the DVD player cannot read or play the inserted disc.
  1. Ensure the inserted disc is compatible with the DVD player.IMPORTANT: Refer to the operating instructions supplied with the product for a list of compatible disc. Manuals are available online in the Manuals/Specs/Warranty section of the Sony® eSupport Web site.
  2. Use a soft cloth to clean the disc.
  3. Examine the disc for any cracks or scratches that might be interfering with playback.
  4. Attempt to play another disc.NOTES:
    • If another disc plays in the DVD player, then the previous disc is faulty.
    • Some recordable discs may not play correctly because of the quality of the recording, the physical condition of the disc, or the characteristics of the recording device or authoring software used.

  5. Remove the disc from the DVD player.
  6. Turn off the DVD player.
  7. Unplug the power cord of the DVD player from the AC outlet.
  8. Let the DVD player remain without power for 1 minute.

Dvd wont play ...each time you insert a DVD it shows DVD HO2...

I had the same Problem, player was only 13months old when the error HO2 appeared (typical huh?) anyway 2 years of this thing getting shifted from cupboard,wardrobe,attic, (did'n't want to throw it out cause it cost me £700), finally it came to fix it or bin it time. scoured the net to no avail, lost the rag and half dismantled it..then during all of this ( oops I'm going on a bit LOL)
you can hear a sound as though the disc is trying to be read, after 100's of attempts to get it to work, I finally noticed the disc had not changed position. (disc was not spinning) pointed to the Motor??
what I did to fix this was unplug from main's, remove top cover until you can see the top of the dvd disc, got hold of a pencil with a rubber on one end, plug back in, switch power on, and gently pushed top of disc ( clockwise ) and it kick started it off

that was over 3 years ago and the player is still going strong
I know its a bit rough, but nothing ventured nothing gained ;)

RCA DVD player model DRC105N that won't read discs anymore

If the DVD is not reading any CD, then it is often a lens problem.

If th lens cleaner does not work the unit must be taken apart, to clean the lens pickup with isopropyl alcohol and soft cotton tips.

In some case is necessary to replace the lens pickup, as this is defective.

Player Does not play any type of Disc

Press case lid where it attaches to player. If this makes unit react you have a defective lid switch. You can probably put some weight over it to hold lid down and it will operate. Otherwise switch must be repaired
