    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.

When playing commercial DVD's, my DR-MV150B starts to stall. It stops with the picture on the televsion screen, but can't see the rest of the movie. Any thoughts? The disc does eject.

My factory DVD player will except disc the ejects it


If I understand your rather cryptic post correctly...

This very well could be a Blue-Ray disk loaded into a
non-Blue-Ray capable DVD player. Your car player's capabilities MUST match the disc, otherwise, the disc won't play.

I've run into this very same problem with my home DVD players. Which both are non-Blue-Ray capable, but I was able to verify the Blue-Ray discs on my PC.

DVD player wont eject dicks or play just say's disc error


You need to insert dicks into the DVD player, also, once it ejects the dicks, you should wait 20 minutes or so before attempting to eject more dicks.
