Despite all trays having a cd in them system shows No Disc

For no apparent reason all 5 disc trays show NO

DISC despite there being a Cd in the tray.I thought maybe the lens might be dirty so tried using a Cd cleaner but this Cd also led to a No disc response.Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

Sounds like your laser lens is dirty. Cleaning disc usually dosen't work. Have to clean lens with alcohol and cotton swab/q-tip. If this doesn't work the optical pick up assembly will have to be replaced.

    You will have to remove everything that's in the way, to get to where the disc is clamped in place to play. At that point open the tray and there will be a motor with a a small turn table on it and next to that you should see a component with a lens on it. That lens focuses the laser onto the disc. See if it is dusty on cloudy, if it is gently wipe it with the swap, don't push hard or move it any more then needed to clean the lens, it will break, and don't soak it just dampen the swap. Then use the dry end of the swap to dry off excess, lens should be shiny. If this doesn't work the optical pick-up will have to be replaced. Good Luck.

RCA RS2664 Stereo wont play CD in any of the trays but seems to try to scan to play.


Hello
The laser pickup unit's lens may be dirty or dusty. Just put a lens cleaning disc into the tray, and play it at least three times, by ejecting the disc each time, and reinsert in in to. The lens cleaning disc can be bought from most of the electronic spare part selling shops at your town, and won't cost more. If it dose not help you, the laser pickup unit of your RCA device should be replaced with same type and number. OK.

When i put the dvd in it will not read and there is a hitting noise at regular intervals


Hello,

The reason your player is not playing the disc could be that the disc is not sitting properly or the lens is weak or the lens is dirty.

To fix it if it is dirty,

Get a lens cleaner and use it to clean the player,

If it does not work after that,

Try to fix the tray by,

Getting the appropriate screwdriver,
Open the cover of the dvd player,
Try to assess the disc tray to see if it is sitting properly,
Turn it on and test a disc on it to know where the fault is from,
If you do not detect any kind of irregularities,

Then it is most likely to be the lens of the player that is weak and needs replacement.

All you have to do is follow the process you used in assessing the disc tray, but you have to remove the disc tray and disconnect the lens and replace it with a new one.

Take care

My Akai dvd player shows "no disc" after loading a dvd. The tray sometimes makes a grinding noise when opening and closing as well.


Hello,

The reason the player is not reading the disc and showing no disc is either because the disc is not sitting properly on the lens from the disc tray, or the lens is weak or the lens is dirty.

To test if it is the disc tray, open the cover of the player with the appropriate screwdriver, place a disc directly on the tray and apply a little pressure on the tray, if it reads the disc, then it is the tray.

All you have to do is to adjust the disc tray and screw it tightly.

To test if the lens is weak, try several DVD disc on it,and test them also on another tested ok player, if it does not work on your player and works on other players, then the lens is weak.

to fix this, get the appropriate screwdriver, open the cover and unscrew the disc tray.

You will gain access to the lens, carefully disconnect the lens and replace it with a new lens. then it will be ok.

To test if it is just that the lens is dirty, clean the lens with a lens cleaner and test a DVD to see if it will work.

Take care.

Cannot Read Disc?


I would say get a cleaning CD with the bristles on the Cd to clean the lens of the Wii. When you get it all it does is spin in the CD tray and clean the lens inside the CD tray. That should fix your problem the lens is probably dirty. If it doesn't leave a comment and ill try to help again.

My ps2 game disc says disc read error, but there is nothing wrong with the disc


Most disk read errors that are not caused by the disk itself are caused by having a dirty lens in the drive you put that disk into.

Two easy ways to clean that lens are either buying a cd lens cleaner (cd with brushes on the underside of it) or by using a can of compressed air to blow the debris off the lens.

If you go the route of compressed air in a can, there is an extension that comes with the can...it usually looks like a mini red sipping straw. You can reach the lens by open up the drive tray and pulling the power to the console when it is open. The reason to pull the power is that you can now move the tray halfway closed without it auto closing on you. When you have access to the lens from positioning the tray, stick the extension into your console and place it right at the lens and press the nozzle to spray the air. Do this a couple times and try reading your disk again.

Hope this helped.

hi, check that when the right side tray closes the screen must show up READ or DISC CHECK. the behaviour must be the same as the left side cd deck. if loading is faulty then the cd tray is out of alignment or sensing swithches are faulty. if disc is loading then u have a laser pickup problem or the laser ribbon cable is intermittent or the spindle motor is tired or the laser lens needs accurate cleaning. cheers.
