You may not have adjusted the laser correctly. if you actually did place the laser in without damaging it, then what you need to do is adjust it so that it picks up the Game.

DVD recorder will not load even a new disk. After a period of loading opens the drawer. I suppose a dirty laser lens.


Before you go through all of that trouble, you might want to go pick up a Maxell DVD cleaning disk. I maintain a few old Laser disk players with DVD and find that this disk works well for cleaning the optics without taking apart the machine. This disk has a small brush that cleans the lens as it rotates and provides some images to show that the disk is reading. I would try this first as it is low cost ($6.00) and can be used over and over.

I hope this helps with your problem.

My cd changer wont play the cd.. it works meaning it seems to be spinning around but just suddenly says check disk. help !! i need music to drive !!! thanks


In most cases when the CD does not play it is possible that the optical head is a suspect. Sometimes it might pick up ordinary audio CD but will not play other formats. This indicates that the optical head is weak and so there is no detection or scanning of the CD . If the optical is working the tracks will be read immediately but with no scanning the laser head can be defective.
Sometimes certain cleaner disks will not be tracked to run for cleaning as it will not be read and so will reject. Hence it is ideal to manually clean the laser head eye using a cleaning swap /cotton bud with gentle pressure on the lens eye.

My DVD player won't read, keeps saying disk error

The main motor will not work in some cases as unless the tracks are read the drive motor will not work with signal from the processor.

If there is no result then watch if the CD spins or tries to spin. If so the board seems to work unless a test is taken on the main board but the possibility of a defective optical head can be the suspected fault.
If any of the above seems otherwise we must recheck with possibilities of a malfunction of the main processor board

Now since you have changed with a new one ( please make sure that the solder jumper was removed which is for static damage security in the new unit)

My Samsung BD-P1500 keeps saying "No Disk." It won't play Blu-Ray or DVDs? Why?


Is it new? Then send it for warranty claim. Is it old? Warranty expired? Then send it for repair. U have an internal problem. Either with circuitry or with the pick up lens. Most cases if the power is there, then the issue is with the lens. In optical disc drives, lens is the main culprit which fails most of the time. Just in case if u don't know, pick up lens is what reads the cd/dvd/bluray through a laser.

Will not play dvd's... get error message no disk... wrong disk ... tried multiple disk


Is this a cheaper-budget brand player? If so it could simple be a dead laser. The old cheap apex player were prone to that. They only cheap solution is to try a dvd laser cleaner. Possible accumulated dust etc is on the eye. Other than that it is probably best to pick up a new player. It's a throw away world these days.

I have a portable dvd player model number mdp1030 the unit keeps saying no disk I have tried numerous disks same results.


then i think the lens is not able to read the disk.

and so i would suggest you to buy a disk cleaner CD and run it in your DVD player and then use your regular disks.

if this is not working then it is some internal fault in your DVD players lens.

Hi Lee,
Your lasers on the way out.
it,s all to do with the power output of the laser head, and the angle for reading the 2 different disk types.
i,d suggest getting a new laser fitted. not too expensive usually with older consoles. Try E-Bay :)

'Where can I get an LG optical pick-up for the LG LH-D6230 DVD player?


Easy and inexpensive to repair. not laser at all. disks are not spinning at the correct speed, clean the round rubber seal that pushes against the disk with 100% alchohol.
