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

My Sony CX995v is about 3.5 years old. When attempting to play a DVD I get a flashing "Reading" message for about 5 seconds followed by a "Cannot Read" message. This only happens on DVDs and not on CDs.

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.

What would cause a panasonic cp 67 dvd/cd player to play only cds. How do I adjust the reader?


It is most likely a permanent fault as CDs and DVDs require the laser to focus differently. If the unit is a few years old it will not be viable for economic repair.

The player is playing cds get error message that it can not play dvds


hello,
the problem of the layer is that the strength the lense needs to carry out work on a DVD is not enough, therefore the lense is weak, though it plays cds, cos the strength needed to play a cd is low.

the solution is for you to unscrew the player, detach carefully and disconect the old lense, and replace with a new lense. screw it back and make sure there is no tampering with any of the wires, then test it with a DVD cd.

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.

Suddenly "cannot play this disk" on Sony DVD/CD..every DVD...CD's work!


I have the same problem. I have a 5 year warranty from the company I purchased the unit from. I am not sure if they will replace it or not. I am reluctant to buy another one with this known issue. We have enjoyed the unit for nearly 3 years with no issues.
