    I have the same problem. all has been good for a couple of years. Tried to play a disc yesterday and now all I get is "cannot play disc" on every single disc in the machine (almost full (home burns and store bought)). Not to mention that it won't stop trying to play the next disc so it is like and endless loop unless you open the door. Not only do I not want to shell out for another one but I definitely don't want to have to type in all that info again.

    Can anyone solve this dilemma??

    Thanks

    I have the same "CANNOT PLAY DISK" message. I opened the unit and found a cracked cable between the DVD laser unit and green circuit board. I replaced the cable and now the unit will play CDs but will not play DVDs. Any other solutions out there?

I had the same "Cannot play" problem - happened suddenly, I don't think I was doing anything unruly at the time.

After checking repair (exchange) prices in excess of $250 from Sony, I decided to open the cover to see if I could see anything wrong - normally a futile exercise with electronics except that in the past I have cleared errant disks that have lodged themselves near the drive/player at the rear of the library.

Upon opening and watching the library try to load and play I noticed the drive itself was not spinning the disk once loaded. It would sit for awhile, thinking about it I'm sure, then would unload and load the next dvd, again failing to spin.

I thought okay, maybe try to spin the dvd while in the player to see if it's jammed or otherwise hard to turn. It was not hard to turn and spun freely. In fact, when I put my finger through the hole at the exposed side of the player at the hub to spin the dvd, clockwise, it suddenly started to spin - and play!

I put the whole thing back together to test and all seems to be working fine at this point. Not sure what would cause the motor to stop spinning and remain in that state through poweroff/on cycles etc. but I'm sure this is not the last time I will have trouble of this kind.

I would note that when replacing the library back in its home on the shelf, be careful not to tip the library, especially toward the player area because the disks will spill out of the carousel near the player and become jammed when you power it on and attempt to load. A final tip of the library away from the player area may clear this if you hear the disks rolling out of their slots and you don't want to open the top again (it's a darned heavy box when fully loaded).

Good luck!

Hi...
The laser goes thru a different lens arraignment for DVDs.
Take it to a TV shop and have them "blow out" the laser assembly with some CO2 and clean the lens.

Hello
Just clean its laser pickup lens, by inserting a lens cleaning disc in to, and play it at least two times. If it doesn't help you, the laser pickup unit should be replaced. The lens cleaning disc can be bought from most of the electronic sparepart selling shops at your town, and won't cost more.

The player is playing cds get error message that it can not play dvds


hello,
the problem of the layer is that the strength the lense needs to carry out work on a DVD is not enough, therefore the lense is weak, though it plays cds, cos the strength needed to play a cd is low.

the solution is for you to unscrew the player, detach carefully and disconect the old lense, and replace with a new lense. screw it back and make sure there is no tampering with any of the wires, then test it with a DVD cd.
