SOURCE: Dvd player not reading ANY disc

If you tryed to clean it and it didnt work you could have several things that went wrong and depending on what did go wrong will tell you if you wanna spend the money or buy a new one. If the laser assy went bad you probably will buy a new one. if you find a good authorized repair shop, then it may just need cleaning and a servo alighnment. or a bad spindle motor, or your missing a switched voltage on the power supply could be missing. Im sorry to tell ya that there are no user serviceable parts inside this unit unless your a tech. The only info i have for emerson is the help # Maybe they can show you where to take the unit to be servced/ 905-940-5089 Good Luck

SOURCE: how to fix a insagnia dvd player

Simply put. Don't ever purchase an Insignia product ever. I Have the same problem with a product I purchased just over 3 months ago, and the Insignia Customer service rep Sandra Larraburu gave no help to me other than the following solutions.
1. Make sure all the cables are plugged in right (Are you serious Sandra?)
2. Try a different DVD (I told her in my original email that I had even been trying different DVD players, so of course that was done)
3. UnPlug it (Is this a solution?)
4. Plug it back in (O....kay)

Then she proceeded to tell me that because the manufacturer's warranty had expired after 90 days, that I was entitled to no resolve.

Note Insignia states this "All of us here at Insignia strive to provide the best quality products
and a
great customer care experience"

If that is the sign of a company striving, I've learned my lesson.
No Insignia for me again.

hi,

please try cleaning the lens manually with cotton or check if the flexible board connecting the lens to the mpeg board is ok or may be loose. if the same problem appears, maybe you've got defective lens or affective mpeg board.

Showing NO DISC while on DVD mode why this


I'm assuming it plays CDs? If it reads NO DISC, in the DVD mode, the laser that reads the DVD is no longer able to read the TOC, Table of Contents. Generally, that means the laser(Optical Pickup) needs to be replaced. For more information, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

Bush portable DVD player will not load my disc


Hello
Just put in an audio CD disc or an MP3 disc, and see whether it reads them or not. If the player can read these discs, and only refuses to read DVD discs, make sure that the laser pickup unit of it is faulty, and should be replaced with same type and number. If none of them reads, there are two possibilities, the first one is of laser pickup disc itself and the second one is the strip wire [a flat flexible cable connected between laser pickup unit and the mainboard of the player] is faulty. First replace the strip wire. If it helps you, it's OK. If not replace the laser pickup unit also. The strip wire can be bought from most of the electronic spare part shops at your town. When buying laser pickup unit, its number must be noted, and exact replacement should be done. Otherwise, it won't match with the main board. OK.

I have made several attempts to play a disc on my JVC TH-V70. IT reads 'reading' on the dvd unit then after a few second the disc ejects. Why is this happening?


Hi Adrienne - If it only happens to the one DVD it is most likely a problem with the DVD being damaged or dirty.

If it's happening with all your DVDs your player laser lens is probably dirty or it might be damaged. If no discs are being read get yourself a CD/DVD cleaning disc and run it a couple of times (following the directions). Of this doesn't work you will have to decide if the player is worth the price of a repair (unless it's still under warranty). Most aren't as you can buy decent players for less than $50. Any repair will cost at least that.

If it is the one disc I suggest you take a clean soft cloth and wet it slightly with plain water and the give it a few strokes across the disc (not in circles), let it try dry for a few minutes and try it again. Also examine the disc (bottom) for any obvious scratches or stuck on gunk.

Good Luck and thanks for using Fix Ya.

I have a 22" LCD


Hello
Either your DVD players' laser pickup unit or its strip wire has got damaged. Laser pickup unit is one which reads the disc we put into it, and strip wire is one which connected between the main circuit board and laser pickup unit assembly. The strip wire damage is common for all cd players, and dvd players. Just replace the strip wire with a new one of same type; and see the effect. If it helps you it is OK. If not, replace the laser pickup unit assembly with same type and number.

I have a philips hts6510 home theatre system and when i put a dvd in to play it says no disc


hi,
Normally a dvd player shows the message NO DISC when,
1. The disc inserted is bad.
2 The lase pickup unit inside the dvd lost its reading intensity, dirty lens or the spindle motor damaged .

In your case the second one happened. the intensity of the laser pickup unit has lost or the spindle motor faulty or there is some dust on its lens. just insert a cleaning cd in it for two or three times. then check again is the DVD is reading or not

if the problem remains then you have to check the motor and the laser pickup unit. the lase pickup unit have two laser emitter and receiver in its inside . one for reading and playing DVDs and the other for CD and MP3. also the spindle motor runs in different speed when u insert dvd and cd.

Open the cover of your dvd player and power it on insert an audio cd and watch is it reading or not also notice the speed of the spindling of the cd. if the audio cd reads and play. then the possible problem is the spindle motor

To conform it remove the audio cd and insert a dvd. watch the rotation of the dvd. if it feel very hard to rotate it then, the spindle motor is damaged. if so replace the spindle motor if it runs more the the speed of than audio cd then the laser pickup unit is faulty. Then u have to replace the laser pickup unit.
if you need any further assistance from me , feel free to contact me through fixya.
ok

Dvd player isn't working, tuner working, i am not sure what happened, it says that there is no disc. worked unitl few days ago, company out of business.


Hello

Ok, the no disc error is not good...
Firstly, i must inform you that there might be a possibillity that the laser lens which actually reads the dvd/cd is burnt out.

Is there a possibillity that there is a cd stuck in the trey?

One other thing you can try is to buy a laser lens cleaner disc, this looks like a cd/dvd, but is cleans the laser lens in the player. This error sometimes occur when the laser lens itself has some dust particles on it.

The other alternative is that you replace the laser lens itself, which is not worth the money.
You can buy a new unit for this replacement fee.

You can buy the laser lens cleaner disc at any cd or music store.

Kind regards
Andrea

Dvd player will not open


the problem is internal and the only way is to bring it back to the store you just bought it. because it is still under warranty, since it is just newly bought.

Good luck

RCA DVD player model DRC105N that won't read discs anymore


If the DVD is not reading any CD, then it is often a lens problem.

If th lens cleaner does not work the unit must be taken apart, to clean the lens pickup with isopropyl alcohol and soft cotton tips.

In some case is necessary to replace the lens pickup, as this is defective.
