What could be the problem if a dvd won't play on my dvd player.

For a start, try to read the DVD on a computer. Press on CD/DVD on right button's contextual menu for exlpore. If the computer can open and list the DVD, try to play it with VLC player.
If you have problem reading the DVD disk, it's it. If you can read, it's your player

get a cotton bud/q-tip and clean the lens very gently you will not see much dirt but lite cleaning will remove a film from the lens

My protable DVD player(philip) is unable to play korean / Hong kong DVD series only and after dropped on the floor. I try so to play the dry cleaner and also the same problem as mentioned...

A dvd writer (dont matter what make) is using a concentrated beam, called the eye, that is actually lies on a balanced spring, if you can call it that, and when you put in a dvd that eye is lifting up close to the dvd/cd to start read, first it read the lead in and then the lead out and if happy it plays what ever is on that disc, and when you drop the dvd writer that springs get damaged and the eye don't lift up high enough to read the dvd, while it is still reading other dvds it again depends on the type of make (pay close attention on the thickness of some dvds, it is build in layers and that is the possible cause)

I have a panasonic RV26 DVD player. After inserting DVD it goes to the reading mode (normal) but it stays on the reading mode for awhile then code H02 shows and then stops and and will not accept any other...

The Optical head or the mother board is defective. The data is not received and so the Mp is not able to read or process.
hence if have cleaned the optical head lens, and there is no reading try to put in a audio cd to test. If the cd is read the head must be Ok and the DVD processing must be faulty possible board issue but if there is no reading then the optica head is faulty

Not reading and playing dvds

You can try cleaning the DVD lens.
DVD just says loading--
This can be as simple as a dirty DVD lens. CAUTION!! The lens is delicate! I wipe DVD lenses with ONE drop of glasses cleaner on a Q-tip and, starting in the center, wipe in circles to the outside. Do not press down! Do not force the lens side to side. It will move while cleaning but don't put more pressure than needed to move the lens 3/4 way down!
Its a cheap test to see if there is a fingerprint on the lens. (You won't be able to see it - does not take much)
If this does not help, it means it needs a laser or worse. Probably just replace the player.

A Sony RDR-GX210 DVD player I can play a CD - no problem but when I try a DVD, the TV screen says - ''loading please wait'' and then it drops back to the TV picture witha message - ''Can't play this disc''...

Hi Allan,

When you get no disk error, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will start operating on certain disks better than others.

In that case you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD/DVD will not be read, therefore the error.

Whe this problem is starting you may be able to read only CD, DVD or Blue ray, or for example only DVD-R and not +R , or only to read and not to write and so on. After more prolonged usage , often the unit goes losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all.

In your case the lens does not work on DVD , but only on CDs for the reasons above , that is quite common.

If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens problem.

Try first using a CD/DVD or Blue ray lens cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does not work you will need to disassemble the drive , and clean lens directly with q tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the CD/DVD lens, or the whole drive unit.

I've got a panasonic SA-MT1, it's become a bit temperamental at reading discs - some it will read with no problem, others it says "no play". is there a quick fix for this?

Hello sir,

This is the dust problem in Lens. So plz buy a good Lens cleaner CD and put it on and play it. After that u can play all type of disc. But make sure that dvd/vcd is support by your player. ok

My dvd player plays avi files but now it wont play any dvd just dont read disks

The reading lens inside the player should have accumulated dirt or must have been corrupted in some other way. You can get lens cleaning kits and this problem will be solved easily.

this problem occurs quite often if the players are used for a long time, or left without usage.

Many cleaning products out there.. heres one.. click here
