Why my portable dvd playing won't play when i put a dvd dics in?


If it takes and accepts the disc but will not play it is either a mechanical issue (table not spinning the disc) or if not reading disc it is likely a dirty or bad optical pickup in the unit---

Will not play


Hello Brandon
The fault is with its Laser Picku Unit itself. The sled motor, the motor that spins the disc inside the DVD player, should wok like this as you details here. Just see, when we put in a disc inside any disc player, it will sart spins, after it has been loaded properly into the mechanism. The the laser pickup unit will start scan the recording on the disc, reads it; recogonize its contents, then starts to play from the first track. This is an automatic process ot all disc players, and suring this reading process, the spin speed of the disc will vary, may stop, or rewind to a little and then spins again. This is a common process to all the playeres.
Here, with your DVD player, the laser pickup unit tries to read the tracks, but fails, the again it starts to readit, fails and finally show a 'No Disc' display, as it hasn't got any details about the recoding at the inserted disc.
There are three main causes for this fault. The first one is with a faulty strip wire. This wire is one, that connects the laser pickup unit with main board. You can see a flat ribbon type cable that connectes to laser pickup unit at the mechanism, to the main circuit board of the player. Replace this cable fist. This cable can be purchased from most of the electronic spare part shops at your town, and won't cost more.
The second chance is with dirty or dusty laser pickup unit lens. To cclean this lens, the easisest way is to put in a lens cleaning disc into the unit, play it for at least three times, by ejecting it out and get it into. This process will clean up any dirt or dust accululated on the lens, and will help you. The cleaning disc also can be bought from most of the electronic spare part selling shops at your town.
The third chance is with a faulty Laser Pickup Unit istsef. If so, there is no repair to this unit other than replacing it with same type and number. It is a skilled work, and you have to disassemeble and reassemble the deck mechanism. If you have experience to dothis, you can do it by yourself at home Ok
Please do rate this solution, if it found helpfull to you.

My CD player keeps displaying no disk and wont play the cleaner disc, is something dirty or broken?


Hello
If it does not play the cleaner disc, just inspect whether the disc inserted in spins inside it. You can check this by open the upper cover of the player, and inserting a disc into it. If inserted disc spins inside, and the player won't read it, the fault is with its laser pickup unit, and it should be replaced with same type and number.
If the disc dos not spins, the fault is with the sled motor [the motor that spins the inserted disc], has damaged, and should be replaced. OK.

MY Macbook pro disc drive wont read the Starcraft game discs. Every other cd or dvd i put in the drive at least reads, but when I put in starcraft it just spins for a second, pauses, and spins again...


I was pretty disappointed when I couldn't play a 12 year old game on my new macbook either. The best thing to do is go to battle.net, load up the CD key and then load the software onto your mac. The downside is that you will need internet access before playing even if you play single player. That's the way I got around it.

My front loader reads disc error or unplayable no matter what disc I insert. It worked just fine for about 2 years. It doesn ot get heavy cd use, but everyday radio/alarm use.


To resolve this issue, try one or all of the following:
  • The Wave® music system is designed to play commercial CDs, CD-Rs, MP3-encoded CDS and CD-RWs. If your system has trouble playing MP3 CDs, make sure the discs were recorded with compatible formats. See Cannot play MP3 CDs


  • The system may not be able to play certain CD-RW discs. Playability is dependant on how the disc was recorded, including the format it was recorded in and the actual disc used for recording.
    Note: iTunes defaults to AAC as the encoding format. In order to use iTunes to make CDs that will play on the Wave® music system, you’ll need to change the format to MP3 How to Choose Import Options


  • Different brands of CD-Rs and CD-RWs use different materials which may affect the ability of a player to read them. If you are burning your own CD-Rs or CD-RWs, experiment with different brands of discs


  • If a commercial disc won’t play, check for scratches, fingerprints or other physical damage. Try the CD in another player. If it still won’t play, there may be a problem with the disc


  • Reset the system by disconnecting the power cord from the wall for one minute, then plug the system back in

Sony dav dz100. Disc does not spin.


Hi,
Please put few drops of WD-40 on spindle motor shaft that sound not spin smoothly.
Spindle motor is located in middle of dvd mechanism that holds and spins disc.
If that does not solve your problem, replace optical block.
Let me know if you need optical block part number.
Thanks.

CoD4 disc won't read.


how many times have you tried to play the disc?
the 360 is prone to many disc read errors, and most of the time if you just keep trying to play the disc it will work. xbox recognized the problem, and with the new dashboard update you can install games to your hard drive which minimizes the time the disk is spinning, which in turn minimizes disk read errors.

if it doesn't play, I would deffinetly try getting a new copy before sending in the console. getting a new copy is just a trip to the store, sending in the console will take a month.
