Panasonic DVD player in 2004 Escalade ''Disc Format Error''

Had this vehicle about 4 months used the factory DVD player 8-10 times and it worked fine. Now every time we try to use it an error comes up ''Disc Format Error'' we have tried several different DVD's plus the same ones that worked fine before. I also tried a cleaning disc....any suggestions?? I really need this fixed ASAP...
Thanks!

the disc cleaner is not exactly clean your lens! much better to open your DVD and you clean the lens with 100% cotton or cotton buds then slightly touch your cotton to lens in clockwise to remove the dirt!

Your laser eye is either dirty or tired(out of alignment). Buy a cleaning kit, if it doesn't help get someone who knows how to re-align it.

SOURCE: car DVD player won't read DVDs

Well if like me you have tried taking it to a repair shop, you know that no one will touch it. These are unreliable cheap units, the screens are great just the DVD players keep going wrong. Give up and plug a portable media player into the input, all the films on a hard drive - no jumping - stopping etc etc

It can't read dvd disc, but if i'm using an mp3/cd its fine


Was this a burned dvd or a store bought one? Sounds like the laser that reads dvd is dirty, try to play another dvd and see what happens after cleaning.

DVD player will not play disc.


If you are loading a store bought DVD and that it what it say's. The transport needs to be replaced. roughly 150-200. If you are loading "burned" DVD's the format may be wrong and the unit cannot read it. Best suggestion I can give you is to first buy a "Laser Lens Cleaner" on that uses fluid. Any electronics store sells them for 15-20. Run it thru the unit a couple of times then try a clean, store bought DVD. If it plays, problem solved. With your DVD's, if you have any liquid car polish like mother's or meguiars, put a couple drops on the disc and spread around with your finger, let it set a couple then buff off with a microfiber towel. This works wonders for old scratched cd's and dvd's and helps protect new ones from getting scratched. As for the Lens cleaner, run it thru every product you have that uses discs 3 or 4 times a year, it's the best preventative maintance and only maintanance you can do on a CD player DVD or PC. Hope this helps

If it reaeds the cleaner... then try another disc. 20-30 seconds is a long time to looad a disc...
If the new disc does not work either , I would suggest resting the deck .
If reseting does not help , it is still under warrantee. so have it serviced.

No Valid Disc


I had tried cleaning the lens like most solutions said to do, with no luck. I tried what user gthumm said he/she tried, which was taking off the back of the player. Their problem was the white wheel (motor) and the next wheel (black) were not turning smoothly. He/she pushed the white wheel down until it snapped back in, allowing the wheels to turn. I tried it twice and finally, I have a working portable dvd player again! Yeah! Thank you so much gthumm and fix ya team! My kids especially thank you! You are the BEST!

Won't play disc, reads no disc


Hi, well I see this type of thing in my Lab alla time unfortunately it sounds if ya DVD has gone faulty... an all too common occurrence these days.. the Laer seem to be very "Frail" You could try a cleaning Disk, but they seldom work.. but sometimes? all ya can do is replace it with another good DVD.. OR if thats not possible use any AV input and connect a remote DVD player that way.. a bit of a hassle, but it's a work around anyway.

No disc


Sorry no luck with a manual yet best I could come up with is e-mail address; Tech-support@Farenheitusa.com They should help. It does sound though as if you have to either get it serviced (try your local repair shop) or replace it - I will keep looking for a manual and post anything i find; Hope this helps :)
