The most probable problem with your battery problem is your charger is not charging the battery and doing a voltage check on the end that plugs into your dvd would verify or negate that. The other problem could be that your battery needs to be replaced. The problem with the no disc could be four things and this is usually the order I check them in. Your lens that actually reads the disc is probably dirty enough to have stopped reading probably and it cannot read the initial sector You can clean the lens manually with a q-tip and a little isopropyl alcohol on one end. After you clean it turn the q-tip over and wipe off the excess. The second thing that can cause a no disc is that there is a mechanical switch that has to be made for it to detect that there is even a disc in the disc carrier. After this switch is made then it tries to read the disc. That switch is usually in the position so that when the door closes it makes that switch. Only by taking the dvd module out can you actually determine if it is working properly. The third thing is that after the switch closes the disc motor has to start turning in order for the disc to be read. If it does not turn after the door closes it cannot read anyway and you get a no disc error. Keep in mind the door switch has to work for the motor to even start turning initially. You have to be able to see this by taking the cover off your dvd player. There is also an electronic component that drives that motor but you would need to be an electronic tech to be able to find it and replace it with the right one. Good luck and let me know.

Sony dvp-fx750 dvdplayer is dvd disc is nodisc problem ,but audio cd,vcd runing

In most cases when the CD does not play it is possible that the optical head is a suspect. Sometimes it might pick up ordinary audio CD but will not play other formats. This indicates that the optical head is weak and so there is no detection or scanning of the CD . If the optical is working the tracks will be read immediately but with no scanning the laser head can be defective.

The main motor will not work in some cases as unless the tracks are read the drive motor will not work with signal from the processor. Also in some cases the central motor base can shift and so the distance to the disc can be more resulting in low detection. You can pull up the spindle to come closer.
Sometimes certain cleaner disks will not be tracked to run for cleaning as it will not be read and so will reject. Hence it is ideal to manually clean the laser head eye using a cleaning swap /cotton bud with gentle pressure on the lens eye.
If there is no result then watch if the CD spins or tries to spin. If so the board seems to work unless a test is taken on the main board but the possibility of a defective optical head can be the suspected fault.
If any of the above seems otherwise we must recheck with possibilities of a malfunction of the main processor board

I have a sumsung dvd-L300 portable player. Do I need a converter or transformer to use it in Europe?

I think so, DVD region codes are a DRM scheme. DVD videodiscs may be encoded with a region code restricting the area of theworld in which they can be played.

Thecommercial DVD player specification requires that a player to be soldin a given place not play discs encoded for a different region (region0 discs are not restricted).

so if you want to making the DVD region free,watch and copy multi region-coded DVD on any DVD player and any DVDplayer software, back up protected DVD to computer and convert DVDMovie to play on iPod iPhone PSP, et portable players, you have toremove DVD region code.

Here we have one great software "Daniusoft DVD Ripper"which can remove region code from any DVD. Not just remove DVD regioncode and copy DVD to computer with 1:1 lossless quality, Daniusoft DVDRipperis also capable of converting DVD Movie to other Video auidoformat to play on portable players like iPod, iPhone, Zune, PSP,Blackberry, etc.

I've inserted several dvd's and cd's which are not being read with the display stating nodisc.The problem first started with a dvd stopping after showing about 75% of content, and since stopped working...

There can be 2 reasons for this 1. might be a collection of moisture or 2.dust.
For both put the dvd in a warmer room for about 2 hours for(unplugged) and let the moisture evaporate.
Try it again.
If dust is there blow throught the area where the dvd enters.
Also remember you can only play certain discs, and the area code should be correct.

Philips PET710 DVD player shows 'no disc' when disc inserted

I have the same problem with my portable dvd player and found that cleaning the lens of the player using a non-alcolhol wet nap for cleaning eye glasses worked well. I also found the rail that the optics runs along while playing needed a very small amount of silicone greese applied using a Q-tip. You may find that the optic unit may be "stuck" somewhat but can be resolved by gently moving the optic along its guide using a finger.

This changed my unit from not working at all, to working intermittantly sometimes having to vary the player on and off to recongnise the disc. Hope this works

No disc error video and audio cd works only dvd gets nodisc error

Hi there,

Did you try to test it and play another using another disc?

You may try to clean the optical lens of the unit using a optical disc cleaner available on any electronic shop, it seems that the drive lens is dirty and can't recognize the disc inserted.

Hope this helps.
