CD player idicates all disks "bad"

Mechanicly everything seems to work - but any CD or DVD (even directly from Blockbusters) had a "Bad Disk" error after being inserted. I cleaned the lens of the DVD drive, but no help. Any suggestions to fix or to get a new DVD drive for this unit would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I have a Philips Magnavox 20MC4304 20 in. TV/VCR/DVD Combo. But the DVD player shows some error. It said "playback feature may not be available on this disk" and it dosen't read the disk.

Try some other discs if you have not----If all show the same or similar error you have either a dirty or bad optical pickup in the player (it reads the discs).

Sometimes my tv says incorrect disk when I'm trying to watch a DVD. And sometimes it skips with a brand new disk. How do I fix it?

If you do not have a good disk cleaner, I would suggest you use one. Some disks wont play if the lens has film or dirt. There is a kit you can get at Radio Shack, Best Buy, or even Walmart. It is a wet dry system, couple of drops of alcohol, and you clean your dvd player. It has audio on it and you can follow the directions. They also advise after 10 hours of use to do a disk clean up on your system I also do my CD players too, Also on your PC. Hope this helps.

Disks unredable

That sounds like the laser eye is bad,the eye that reads the CD/DVD.How old is your TV?The last time I worked on CD players,those things were priced around $60+ and that was in the late 90's.Also if you are considering repairing it,repair places have at least a 20% markup on parts,not to mention probably at least an hour labor which I am not sure of the current rate.If the TV has external input capability,I would just buy a new DVD player.You can probably find a decent one for $100 or less.Good luck!

DVD Player that repeatedly says "no disk" when there is a disk in it

Most probably the lens is durty. CD-DVD cleaning disk might help.
Good luck

AudioVox VE 1020 BAD DISK

I was able to find a junk unit (screen no good) on eBay -- swaped out the dvd player - everything has worked fine since (except 6 months later I had to swap out the audio card from the same junk unit - and now all OK ever since.)

Dvd player won't work, says no disk


I do not have good news for either of you. These are notorious for having cheap lasers in them and their original purchase price usually makes a repair cost prohibitive. If you are having an intermittent problem where the disc will freeze - then play - then freeze - then play this is often the first indicator that the laser is failing. One easy way to confirm this is to play a compact disc in the player. CDs are easier for the player to read than DVDs are. If it plays CD and you continue to experience problems with DVDs this usually indicates a laser failing. Remember, when buying a consumer electronic product, the price of a thing usually reflects the quality of that thing.

As for cleaning discs; if a laser has enough residue built up on it to prevent the error correction system from overcoming it, then the microfine brushes on a cleaning disc will probably be ineffective at removing that build up. Cleaning discs are akin to the old VCR cleaning tapes, usually ineffective.

Sorry for the bad news,

Dvd player error

PS has no effect.. Most likely the laser is going bad in the DVD.. See if it will play a music CD* If it will play a music CD but not the DVD it is the Laser. Most of the Laser asm are made in china and don't last long.

No disc error showing up-takes 20 tries to bring up dvd

Maybe the laser is unable to focus on the smaller pits and lands of a DVD disk but can see the relatively large pits and lands from a CD just fine. This may be solved by using a CD/DVD cleaner disk. It's a disk with small brushes on it that attempt to brush dust from the laser's lense. They don't always work but that's what I'd try.
