Sounds like the is something restricting the laser from traveling down the guide bars. If you are able, take the cover off and make sure the laser moves freely back and forth on the raols.

My VBR-110 Vizio Bluray player says no disc when there is a disc. I've cleaned the disc, tried different discs, cleaned it, unplugged it for a long ass time, so I don't know what else to do.


It's the laser that is faulty. The laser retrieves information . Normally when you load a disc you will hear it speed up then slow down and as the laser reads the disc it sort of makes a noise like a small hiss or squeak.
i imagine yours will take the disc and then runs to full speed and after around 30secs you have the error message and it stops? . Depending on how your model loads the disc this can sometimes be the result of someone pulling open the drawer or pushing it shut. If it's self loading try getting a good disc cleaner .
They cost very little and it may be enough to clean the laser lense. So buy a basic cd or DVD cleaning kit . The disc will have small brushes on it to clean the laser .
Good luck

It will not play the dvd, it states ''no disc''


Usually "no disc" means that there may be condensation inside the dvd.

Bring the dvd into a warm room ,switch it on and leave for about 2 hours.Then retry.

Philips PET710 DVD player shows 'no disc' when disc inserted


I have the same problem with my portable dvd player and found that cleaning the lens of the player using a non-alcolhol wet nap for cleaning eye glasses worked well. I also found the rail that the optics runs along while playing needed a very small amount of silicone greese applied using a Q-tip. You may find that the optic unit may be "stuck" somewhat but can be resolved by gently moving the optic along its guide using a finger.

This changed my unit from not working at all, to working intermittantly sometimes having to vary the player on and off to recongnise the disc. Hope this works

Wharfedale WDM1381 when loading disc a constant clicking sound is made whilst spinning and disc does not load.Loading is written on screen.


The disk is probably corrupted. Try it on an another DVD player. If it doesn't work on anaother DVD player spray some furniture polish on the DVD, leave for 30secs / 1Min and rub down with a lint free cloth if the DVD ids not too badly corrupted you may get it to work by doing this.

If the DVD Player is the problem get a lens cleaner, £10 quid. insert the cleaner and follow the instructions.

Hope thats a help.

Dvdr3576h will record on dvd+r but will not play on other devices


You will need to finalize the discs on the Philips. I know the manual says that +r may auto-finalize, but I found that finalization sometimes fails on the first attempt. Go into the menu for the Philips, and select the Edit Disc -> Finalize option. Once finalized, your disc should play in other players.

  • Disc not loaded. Load a disc into the player, close the door and press PLAY.
  • The disc used may be defective. The disc used may be defective, try another disc.
  • The disc is placed improperly in the tray. Make sure the disc is properly placed and centered in the tray and if the disc has a label on one side, make sure the label is facing up.
  • The disc is dirty. Use a soft cloth to clean the disc by wiping in a straight line from the center of the disc to the outside edge.
  • Use of DualDisc or Flip Disc which does not meet the Compact Disc Digital Audio Standard. Some music labels have recently introduced the DualDisc for pre-recorded audio and video content. The DualDisc bonds DVD content on one side 'back-to-back' with digital audio content on the other side. However, the digital audio side does not meet the technical specifications specified in the Compact Disc Digital Audio Standard. For this Reason, DualDisc is not permitted to carry the CD logo. Philips DVD and CD players and disc drives fully comply with the CD specifications and therefore may not recognize the DualDisc. Attempting to use DualDisc may lead to playback problems or jamming in the slot loader or drive.
    The DVD video content on the DVD side of the DualDisc should play on Philips DVD players and DVD drives. However, Philips DVD players and drives do not support DVD Audio, and will not play any DVD Audio content present on the DVD side of a DualDisc. Philips will further investigate DualDisc and update this notice accordingly.
