DVD player sporatically displays message "incorrect disc"

DVD player won't play some of my discs, and has trouble with most of them. I keep getting an error message "incorrect disc". Some of the discs have been able to read after repeatedly inserting and ejecting the disc. Wondering if a cleaning disc would help if available. thx.

SOURCE: Toshiba TV Combo MW24FP1, DVD player doesn't work on some discs

This is a common problem for all combo units. The high voltage of the TV section attracts large amounts of particulate dust from the air and often it collects inside the DVD unit. The best way to deal with this is to clean the lens of the DVD unit u sing a cotton swab and alcohol. The store bought "cleaners" MAY work, but that is rare. These cleaners are nothing but small brushes embedded into a disc. They attempt to brush off hte dust. This rarely works. Open up the unit (if you feel comfortabel in doing so) to access the DVD section. Remove the top cover and carefully clean the lens. That should resolve the problem.

SOURCE: DVD PLAYER SAYS "INCORRECT DISC" AFTER "READING DISC"

LOCAL TV REPAIR SAYS THAT, WHEN THIS HAPPENS, THE DVD PLAYER NEEDS TO BE REPLACED AND WILL COST ABOUT $125 TO DO SO, WHICH IS NOT AN OPTION AS WE ONLY PAID $100 FOR THE WHOLE THING.

SOURCE: when i put a dvd in it says

If the player displays this message for every disk you've tried to play (presuming you've tried several) there is likely something wrong with the DVD mechanism and it needs to be repaired or replaced. Some would telll you to purchase DVD lens cleaner and try that, however, in my experience this is usually a waste of money. I have yet to see a DVD with a lens so dirty that it wouldn't play any disk until it was cleaned and then it played everything. If you're under warraty the repair/replacement will likely only cost you shipping of the player to an address you'd get from the manufacturer or your manual. If this is attached to your TV, you'll get in-home service if the screen is big enough. Oherwise you'll have to carry the unit in or ship it someplace for exchange/repair.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please post a comment if you need additional assistance so that I can help you further.

SOURCE: the dvd player says "incorrect

The DVD player is region locked and will only play DVDs from a particular region. The cheap DVDs are probably region 0 and so will work on any DVD player. You can scour the internet for a code hack to change the region (I've had a quick look and not found anything).

What does "incorrect disc" mean


It could be one of several things:
  • Dirty disc. Clean with outward strokes with a paper towel and water or Windex if needed
  • Dead DVD player
  • DVD may be for a region that your player does not support.
  • If the DVD is burned (home made), sometimes players are not forgiving and not all will play burned discs.

DVD player cannot read DVD disc.


Have you tried other DVD's in this unit and they work? If so it might be just an incompatibility issue with that DVD in your TV.

DVD doesn't play any disk anymore. Displays a message: this can't of disc can't be played ... I tried several different types of disks.


Same here! It would say something along the lines of "this type of disc cannot be played. please insert a different disc." it's the appropriate dvd region, i've tried all types of dvds, and it still won't work. the vhs and cd still works, it's just the dvd player that won't.

DVD player problem


You may have had a brief power outage you did not know about. Then the DVD player needs to be unplugged from the wall and started up again or your lens may need to be cleaned Because your dvd player is only made to play region 1 discs and vcd's are region 2. You need to buy a dvd player which will play all region discs or is rated region 0 which is the same. www.dvdenergy.com/index.htm
