Check and make sure the laser eye is clean and clear of dust and smudges. With player OFF, blow across laser eye. Try cleaning with soft dry Qtip. Otherwise you probably have a bad laser drive or bad drive ribbon cable.

I have just the dvd player, the player keeps ejecting the disc and not playing it


Could be lots of things, but here are a few easy ideas:
1) Is the disc Blu-Ray? A regular DVD player can't read Blu-Rays.
2) I think all DVD players can read CDs, but if the disc you're putting in is a CD, maybe that's the problem.
3) Maybe the disc is dirty. Wet the disc, wash it with dish soap (or hand soap, then rinse it clean and dry it off. You can use a cloth or a paper towel for washing/drying. When washing and drying, make motions across the disc from the inside hole to the edge; don't swirl around the disc.
4) Maybe the disc is not the same region as the player. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD_region_code
5) You've got a PAL (European) disc and an NTSC (American/Japanese) player.

Dvd does not read loaded disk


Have a detailed answer on wiki.answers under how to fix a dvd player. My conclusion is : 1. If the cd or dvd player won't start a disc (might display 'no disc') open the box and get good access to the laser lens (quite easy in many models). Clean the lens with an ear-bud (q-tip) and add some alcohol (I used after shave) on to aid the clean if there are still reading problems. Persevere with cleaning before trying option 2.
2. If it's selectively rejecting certain dvd's (and the problem might have become worse with time) consider ever-so-slightly bending the fine wires that suspend the lens over the laser, in an upward direction. Be very careful and read all the observations above first (on Wiki).

Dvd in player but display says no disk


Check the regional code of the DVD you want to play. It is at the back of the DVD cover. It should be compatible with the regional code which your DVD player can play. If they are not tallying the disc will not be read

I HAVE MY DVD PLAYER FOR ONE YEAR WITH NO PROBLEMS. NOW SOME DISCS WONT LOAD, AND THOSE THAT DO LOAD ONLY PLAY FOR A FEW MINUTES THEN STOP.


You may need to clean the DVD player's lens because it hardly reads the discs that is why you are experiencing that problem. If you have a disc cleaner, try playing it; having it spin for like 30 seconds will clean the lens. If this does not work, then you may have to manually clean the lens by opening the DVD's casing and unscrewing the plastic cover that protects the lens inside. Get a q tip or a cotton bud and damp it in an alcohol. Gently wipe the surface of your lens and let it dry for a few seconds. The return everything back and play those DVDs again.

Good luck and hope this helps.

Cds fine; dvds won't load


Most likely the DVD laser lens is dirty. Unplug the CH-DVD 300 from the wall outlet, wait 5 minutes, then remove the top cover. Next, remove the rectangular metal plate which covers the area where the CD or DVD disc would be when in the player's tray. Underneath the rectangular plate you should see two small lenses. Gently clean these lenses using ear swabs moistened with isopropyl alcohol. Reassemble the CH-DVD 300 in the reverse order that you disassembled it, plug it back into power, and now it should read your DVD discs just fine.

When a disc is loaded, it reads no disc, and disc cannot be played.


It is very possible that the lens motor has burnt out. Sometimes the capacitors on the motherborard short out causing the gear timing to go out..

The only thing you can do to fix this is to take the cover off. Get cotton swab and dip it rubbing alcohol and clean the glass laser eye with it.

When a disc is loaded, it reads "no disc".


Okay, so I had this problem a few days ago and started watching movies on my X-box 360. Then my X-Box came up with the same error as my DVD player. After reading countless reviews and e-mailing Samsung, I read somewhere that someone had pummeled their X-Box until it adjusted the laser back.

So, I pummeled my DVD and X-Box into oblivion and oddly enough both of them are working. Don't go crazy smacking it but give it some sturdy hits right above the CD tray as you are putting CD's in and opening the tray. Worked for me and hope it helps...

After loading every disc displayes "wrong disc'


are they bootleg dvd's? if not try getting a lense cleaner because wrong disc means it's reading your dvd's as .mov files which only play on quicktime in a computer. if it reads your cleaner as wrong disk too then get yourself a refund cuz it has a motherboard malfunction.
