You need to blow on the lens inside. It may be dusty. Unless you have a can of airduster.

If the lens is good it will work. If it doesn't work then the motor inside is bad

    Well it is a good sign that the cleaning cd works. However, the cleaning cd might not be doing it's job.

    I would take the top cover off the player and take a Q-tip and rubbing
    alcohol and wipe the lazer lens. After it is dry, try playing a dvd
    with the cover off and see what happens. Take notice of the lens while
    it is trying to play your dvd. Does it slightly wiggle back and forth
    and then doesn't read? If it does, then It is misaligned/untuned due to
    an electronical problem.

    Tell me how cleaning the lens and then playing dvd goes.

Dvd drive dose not recognise any dvds i put in it keeps saying unknown disc


If your unit is older the optical pick up lens may be dirty or has gone bad. Most Philips units are exchange items only, meaning they replace it under warranty instead of fixing it, if its out of warranty there usually are no parts or service information on them. Philips was bought be Funai and is not the company it used to be. Check if the unit will play a audio CD, if it does the pickup assembly is bad, some will play a CD but not a DVD. You may be able to clean the p/u lens with alcohol and a Q-tip. The lens is under the clamp that holds the disc while spinning.

Disc Error when I try to play a dvd LG DP781


Hi,

Sounds like either a dirty or weak laser/lens. Pls try cleaning with a CD disc cleaner or manually using cotton buds (if the eye is accessible).

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi,

A couple of things To try.

1:) The DVD Player May be Region encoded, can only play certain region Dvds. ** Try different Disks**

2:) The Disk May Be Dirty-Scratched ( Towards The Centre )
** Clean The Disk With A Soft Lint-Free Cloth**

3:) The Laser Head may have a speck of dust or debris on it.
** Try a Laser Cleaning CD**

Hope this works For You.
