Yah mine says bad disc as well for any CD, however sometimes it will read it after restarting the player like 7 times or so. its not totally bad but sometimes it works sometimes it doesnt. what sucks is i paid 130 bucks for mine and theres ones for 80 dollars at wal-mart that im sure would have lasted longer than this one

First determine where the problem lies. This can be done by analyzing what is happening. Is the disc spinning. Is it spinning erratically? If the disc is not spinning, the spin motor is probably defective. But sometimes you can be fooled, if the laser does not detect information of the disc, it will not issue a start spin motor command. If you can get the unit to work with the door open by defeating the switches,(Do not under any circumstances look directly into the laser)If you see the laser then the spin motor is bad, In either case the unit is is probably cheaper to replace than to repair.

When inshirting movies dvd in dvd player showing message on dvd players screen no disc and cant play movies dvd why?


it could be the disc itself dvds really don't age that well a common problem is that one day they just decide to freeze and stop working even though they had only been played a few times the most extreme would be your situation. I would suggest trying newer dvds out if same problem occurs then it is a problem with the dvd player.

That usually happens when the laser deteriorates. You can get it replaced but it's not cheap
