SOURCE: my DVD recorder won't play my CDs

Recently purchased a unit... You can imagine the joy when I found in Manual: Audio discs can only play if in .mpg or .wma formats! Yes, all the bells and whistles except the most basic of functions such as all common audio formats. Other portable $99 dvd player works with them.

SOURCE: Portable DVD player .disc error unit spins but says says no disk

Likely to be a classic laser failure. It will require technical person to replace it - try starting with the point of sale and see about warranty etc

SOURCE: Does not work always says check disc after loading

You need to try to clean the laser head and the transport. To do this you will need cotton swabs, isopropyl alcohol and small cans of lithium grease and compressed air.. Open the up the compartment that the dvd discs are placed. In the center of the compartment you will find the spindle and a laser transport. In the transport you will see the laser head. Take a cotton swab and put a small amount of alcohol on the tip. Rub the tip of swab gently across the head of the laser. Do this until the head look bright and shiney. Use the other end of the swab to dry the excess moisture off the laser head. Take another swab and use a small amount of alcohol on the tip and go around the transport device cleaning the dust and dirt from it. Use a small can of compressed air to blow away any dust and dirt in the compartment. Once the laser head is cleaned and the transport is cleared of dust and dirt, Move the transport to the outer most point and bring it back in to its closest point. Do this several times. Do not applie to much pressure while doing it.If you find ruff and uneven action. Clean the areas of problem and return the transport action to smooth and easy operation. If still not smooth and easy. Take another cotton swab and use some lithium grease in very small amounts to lubricate the transport rails. Again move the transport back and forth to lubricate the laser transport. This should return the transport to normal action. Now play a music cd to calibrate the laser head . Let the cd play through a couple of times. After doing this you can now try a dvd disc and it should play normally. If it still does not play correctly, check the spindel to see if it is loose. If this is the case use a drop of super glue to tighten it up. Let it dry completely and try the disc again. It should work correctly. If you are still having a problem.You either have a problem with the laser itself or the drive motor. The drive motor problem would usually be noticed on the playing of the cd. The laserhead and the motor can be replaced if this is the problem. You can find more information on how to do these repairs on you tube. Put cleaning and repairing portable dvd players in the search engine and it will bring up videos on how people have done these types of repairs. I hope this information will help you with your problem.

Drt389h dvd recorder update fix


If error is gotten with all disks then the laser mechanism is no longer working properly. If only with some disks then the mechanism is picky and will only work with certain disks; if so, that is a unique characteristic of your gear and you simply have to live with it.

LG DP450 portable dvd player will not play dvds. No disk appears on the screen & these are new original disks which work in other devices.


This solution worked for me! My portable player would no longer turn the dvd, "no disc error". I bought a disc cleaner at a local office supply and manually turned it with my hand about 10 times. It works now!!

Does not play divx/mpeg4 files on dvd disk!!


The player plays strictly DIVX files, but not variants like XVID (which today is more common since divx became not free).
Divx is actually the same than XVID. After spending days converting my files from xvid to divx, realized that changing only the FOURCC code of the files works.
Look for a program named videoinspector. It allows to edit the fourcc for a video file. for all xvid and variants change the fourcc of the files to DIVX. The change takes a second instead hours of conversion, and movies in xvid that used not to play on this device, now will be played without problems.

DivX certified player cannot read DivX files on DVD+R


Is there a Divx logo on the player? Does this particular DVD player capable of reading DVD+R disks?

If you used the Divx converter program, there is a way to create a DVD in Divx format with menus. Did you use that particular program? If you didn't, you may have the DVD in a data format and the player can't read it that way.
