It's possible that the player needs cleaned or the disk has a scratch in it which will not allow it to play. I'd try a good dvd cleaner first. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Bad disc

Without disc in tray, try pressing down backskip/forward/play/pause buttons 

together for 5-10 secs, load disc (loading takes few minutes). Good luck! Tried my burnt disc and it worked.

SOURCE: Bad disk

if this disk plays on other sources then it is not the disk and sounds like it is a problem with the laser or the motor that pushes the laser along the disk if it dont play no disk at all then it is the layser if you have used a good quality lense cleaner and that didnt cure it then you could try if you are ok taking the case off leave it for 24 hours to make sure no electric is running through it and look where the laser eye is it should be neer the middle where the center of the cd sits if it isnt gently push it back to the middle this will recalibrate your laser then put it back together and try again if this dont work you will then have to get a replacement laser unit these can be expensive but you should be able to fit it your self as the wire areconected by conector but before you do this make sure you use a good lense cleaner as the cheaper ones wont work all the time and listen if the cd is spinning in the unit if its not spinning then you need replace the unit if you dont feel up to it then a repair shop will do this for you their si no way round it other than to replaceit they usually last the life of the warranty they are made to last no longer hope this is some help but not much more you can do

I got an Sony HCD S 300 Home Theater set recently. As I put in dvds and cds for playing, the dvd player says NO DISK. Thinking it is because it is not a original dvd it isn't working, I put another DVD...


It could be down to the Region of the Player or the Laser is Failing. As it doesn't play CDs then I suspect the the Laser is Failing (almost failed if it plays a cleaner but not CDs).

Plays cds but not dvds


If the lens is clean (clean with cotton swab and alcohol), then the optics are failing. DVDs require more power and accuracy to be read than CDs. The ability to read CDs but not DVDs is usually a good indication that the optics are starting to fail.

My new DVD player will play all CDs except the ones I burned on my laptop. Why is this and how can I get the DVD player to play those CDs? when I record a dvd on my lap top it will allow me to play it...


Hi,
it,s one of 2 things.
1:) your recording MP3 to CD. Only recognised on a PC, or MP3 Player. The standard CD Format Is WAV.
If you burn with Nero. you should have a tickbox Which Says ( Normalise all audio Files )
2:) the disk is not finalised. Closed having written the T.O.C Table-Of Contents. this is to allow the reader viewing it, what is actually written on the disk.
