Mustek mp-85a works fine for period of time then stops and tries to re-load dvd. occurs in unpredictable time. have tried ac and battery only power, clean dvd, used previously working dvds, cleaned...


Hello,

I suspect the laser (lens) of the player. I think the laser (lens) is weak that's why it cannot read data/files on DVD discs.

To confirm if actually its a laser problem, insert an Audio CD into the player and see if will play. If it plays, then obviously, your laser (lens) is weak. But if it doesn't play Audio CD, then it might still be the laser (lens) or a mechanism problem.

Get a lens cleaner, use it to clean the lens. If that doesn't solve the problem, get a screw driver, open the player's cover so that you can gain access to the lens, use a cotton board to clean the surface of the lens. This should clean dust or dirt that might be on the lens.

If non of the above solves the problem, then know that you need to replace the laser to a brand new one.

To replace the lens, remove the bad laser, use it as a sample to get exactly the same type and do the replacement. Note that replacing a laser (lens) needs a professional touch, so if you cannot replace the laser, get it to a repairman to fix it for you.

Once this us done, your player will play all DVD discs again.

Good luck.

Cannt play/record DVD's - keep getting "no read" error sfter inserting disk - nothing works - tried brand new discs to record on and even a new movie on disc! How do I correct no read error on...


Depending on the formats of the discs you tried, and assuming they are the correct ones for this machine, it sounds very much like a defective DVD drive and/or software within the unit. If it is under warranty take it to an authorised service agent/workshop for assessment to see if it needs a new drive or not. If it isn't reading any discs, and the unit is brand new, it would most likely be the drive which would be at fault.

Putting a new disc and it wont read it


Hi

This particular model has good compatability with all disk types. Therefore the problem is unlikely to be with the type of disk you are using.

If this is happening with all disks then there is a problem with the laser reading the disk and this is usually due to dirt or debris on the lens.

You can avoid disassembly of the unit by trying a DVD cleaning disk such as this. The alternative is to clean the lens with a Q-Tip and some isopropyl alcohol.

If the problem is confined to one brand of disk then suspect the disk itself as some recorders are picky about which brand disks they can read.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa.

Reads a new disc,but after a few uses will not read.


First try cleaning the heads with a kit that may be obtained at many discount stores. If that doesn;t work, It really sound like a drive head alignment problem. Not a service preformed w/o equiptment.

Recording on Samsung VR375


Sony is not a good brand for buying DVD's. One option for you with the sony discs will be to try it in a computer and see whether it reads the disc. Also you can try using formatting using a software program like nero and see whether the samsung can recognize the disc.
Next time buy good quality discs...look up some reviews on the net.
