As with all writers eventually they fault at the lens and it gets out of line and cannot read discs, you can try the usual thing of checking Sony for any firmware updates, but first:- Go to my computer>right click>hardware tab>device manager, then down list to cd/dvd drives and click '+' sign and highlight your writer, right click on it and select uninstall. Restart PC and it will be automatically re installed, try again and if no change you will need to replace the drive as they are cheaper nowadays

I have a Toshiba RS-TX20 TiVo that suddenly stopped reading and writing DVDs or CDs.


hello,
you can solve this by opening the back cover of the DVD player.
first clean the lens with a dry cotton bud to clean the lens , you have to do this with care because the lens is fragile.
secondly, power on the player and check if the lens beam up a red light, if it does not the problem could be from the ribbon cable use to connect the lens to the printed circuit board or the lens may be faulty,replace to confirm the faulty one.
take care...

My Sony DVD/VCR combo will play cds but not dvds. I took the top of the player off and I can see that the dvd spins but it won't play. It used to play everything very well but just stopped working...


Please clean laser lens with good quality cotton bud gently and check dvd disc playback, if still does not play, replace optical lens block.
Let me know model number of your Sony DVD-VCR combo to provide you optical laser block part number info.
Thanks.

Sounds like you may need a new drive. If I remember correctly those run about $100 and if you feel confident and read the directions (and research it correctly on the internet) you should be able to install it yourself.

Sony CX995v "Cannot Play" message on DVDs but plays CDs O.K.


Hi...
The laser goes thru a different lens arraignment for DVDs.
Take it to a TV shop and have them "blow out" the laser assembly with some CO2 and clean the lens.
