Question about Audio & Video Receivers

4 Answers

My Phillips AZ 6000 DAB soundmachine tells me that there is no disc in it when I put a disc in and ask it to play. I have tried several discs with the same result so I do not think that the discs are at fault. I would be grateful for your advice.

    I have put a new Phillips Cd Lens Cleaning Disc into the machine as you advised, but it still tells me that there is no disc in it! Please can you help?

  • bill_chowing Jan 01, 2009

    The discs I am trying to play are original discs which I have played many times before on this machine.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, if the discs that fails to be read by the Phillips AZ 6000 DAB soundmachine are readable/playable in and with other machines and head cleaning would not address the issue, then the lens or its attendant cictuiry are faulty and would need replacement. Sorry to be bringing you the bad news.

This of course would require opening the unit, perform voltage measurements, determine faulty component and subsequent part(s) replacement. Further, a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron would be required. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings.Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional. If the cost of repairs and downtime would be factored in, then you may have to re-evaluate your options and consider a replacement.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy New Year.

Are these orignal discs (movies etc) or discs you have burned yourself. ensure that the properties of the recorded video... avi mpg etc are supported by the player. nero can be used to burn video to the format your player will play properly

    OK,
    now here are 2 possibilities, If you can take off top cover of unit then..
    Check connecting flexible wire is intact properly between optical lens and circuit board. If yes,
    then possible reason is optical lens gone bad and requires replacement.

Try to play a dvd in the recorder.If it plays the DVD, most likely the recorder is fine If not, the lens is dirty or the recorder has a problem.You can also try a different brand of DVD/rw

Kenwood hi fi componenet system no play error for dvd-r disc


Is it a DVD-R or DVD+R disc?

comment says -R just wanted to clarify, alot of players have trouble playing the -R discs. If you have your booklet for system, it should say in there otherwise they usually put a little sticker label, by the DVD tray with what file formats and discs it will play.

I put in my dvd on my magnavox blue ray player and it says disc error then something like disc not recorded for thins region code * 2 * 45 *


DVDs are recorded for three world regions (for copyright reasons and to match the electronic TV system also broadly in three world regions known as PAL, SECAM & NTSC)
You're likely in the USA as you refer to the Magnavox brand.
Your region is 1 and system NTSC.
Your machine is correctly telling you it can't play the disc because it's for Region 2 system PAL.
However, there are multi region players available, for a few dollars more, which play discs of any region or system.

The Disc Players optics are either dirty and need cleaned, or the optics are out of align and need replaced/repaired, depending on the make and model. If you have a DVD Player cleaner, one that uses fluid, run it thru a few times and try again. If you do not have one, most convenience stores carry them now and will clean all CD/DVD/Home/Auto models, and is a good investment! Just make sure you get a cleaner that uses fluid. Hope this helps!

First to confirm if its a transport problem play a CD from track 1 to the last. If it is not getting stuck and smoothly plays till the end -- transport is OK. The same laser unit which reads the disc also writes. But when it writes the laser intensity is several times higher and the unit runs very hot. And old unit will start to misbehave due to the heat. TIME FOR REPLACING THE DRIVE UNIT.

The DVD drawer on my Audiologic keeps opening and closing on its own and will not play.


by this i take it you mean when you try to load a dvd this happens. ok the problem is either 1 - a bad run on the tray this fault needs a service tech to repair. fault 2 most common if the laser can not read the disc it will eject it. as a safe mode to not trap the disc. to fix this go to an electronics supply shop and purchase a laser disc cleaner it looks just like a cd/dvd except it has small brushes on it to clean the laser eye on the player run the disc several times

best of luck

Picture dvds are read with different software than that required to play movies. Make sure that you actually have dvd player software installed on your system, like WindDVD or Power DVD. See this link for a few.

PACKARD BELL CD/RADIO/MP3 PLAYER. MODEL PB OP 10


This is not for connecting an MP3 player, but rather for playing MP3-CD's. Using your computer and a CD burner, you can burn a CD with up to about ten hours worth of MP3s on it. The procedure for creating the disc varies depending on your burning software. In Nero, for example, you would select "Music" and then "MP3 Disc" and then select the songs you want to put on the disc. For other software you just select "burn a data disc" and then select the MP3 files you want.

Once you have a CD full of MP3s, put it in the Packard-Bell stereo's CD player, and you will be able to play all the MP3 files that are on the CD. THe advantage, of course, is being able to put ten hours on one CD instead of only 80 minutes.
