Possibly a "logic lock" issue. Try unplugging the unit WHILE it's powered up. Wait a few, then plug back in and try agin. Let me know.

If sme problem, you can "try" a laser lens cleaner but I never had any luck with those. By my guess the unit is around 2 years old?

Oh, and make sure the discs are clean.....duh :-)

My Necvox RE8269D will start to load a disk, then after about 20 seconds says "No Disk". It does work on some disks


Dust is a killer to anything that uses a laser to read information, eg... CD's DVD's etc etc. we get at least 3-4 people coming in to the shop a week that have problems with units failing to read CD's. The only thing that you can do with out pulling apart the unit (which can get very complicated) is to use a lens cleaner CD/DVD. you can buy on specificlly made for units that "****" CD's in, or for lid types. i would suggest getting the appropriate one for your needs and running that through a couple of times. afterwards, remove any dust off where the DVD/CD inserts, to stop it carrying it in to the lens. If that doesnt work then you may have to take it to a specialist where they will check for loose connections etc.etc...

I hope this has helped you and please dont forget to rate my solution.
cheers

DVD player in 05 Nissan Quest will play a DVD then quit


Did it come back on later? Did you try a different DVD ? Cars are a harsh inviroment as cars get parked in the sun and left out in the cold and tend to change interior temps very quickly and condensation can build up rust and fogg up things. Did you try running a CD cleaner disk? Can you hear the disk turning as the DVD or cleaner disk is in there ? Do the function buttons light up? If its plum dead no sounds no ejeck it could have blown a fuse. If it seems to be going but not making a picture or auitio sound and the cleaner disk or other disk is no help the bulb may have gone out. In the dark with a clear disk CD or DVD doesnt matter in it you should see some light coming out where the disk goes. If not the bulb may have gone out Call the geek squad at curcuit city and tell them what you find and they'll tell you the troble your in cheapest.

Hi

1) Make sure the discs you are using fit the correct format specified by your Unit . For example - if you are using DVD-R's that you have burned yourself and the unit does not support this format you will get this error.

2) Dirty laser lense causing the unit to have problems in reading the disk. Use a cleaning Disk like this one to see if the error resolves.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Hama-DVD-Laser-Cleaning-Disc/dp/B00005UPDF

If the error remains and you feel confident to do so you can open the unit and look for the glass laser lense - usually blue in color under the DVD clamp. Use a cotton swab and some isopropyl alcohol to gently wipe the lens in order to clean it.

Allow to dry naturally for a couple of minutes before re-assembling the cover on the unit.

3) Try a CD in the unit - if the unit reads CDs and not DVDs - this is an indicator of a faulty or misaligned drive mechaninsm within the unit itself. In this case the drive unit will require service attention and need to be replaced.

Obviously you should check that any disks you are using are clean and free from scratches.

Hope this helps. Please do rate my answer. Many Thanks.

Bad disk


Wow! That's a first. I used to sell both the Jensen AND Phase Linear versions and never a problem. It sounds like a bad unit. You say it plays NOTHING? No CD's OR DVD's that are the factor made?
The only thing I hav up my sleeve is to do a reset on the unit. If it has a button (I don't think it does frm what I remember) use it first, then with the unit ON, unplug the poer plug, wait a few, then plug back in and see.

Sorry I have no more tricks foir that,

W200 will not play any type disk say "disk error"


The only fix i've found for this (without replacing parts) is to turn the unit off and back on and it will read the cd.

Cd dvd wont play


Many of the older DVD and CD players will not play disks recorded on a computer. This has to do mainly with the laser optical response.

There were several manufactures that manufactured their laser unit with a built in filter that would not allow their player to read non pressed CD disks (disks burned with a home computer).

When buring DVD's or CD's, use the slowest possible speed for the burn to have the highest readablity and least data errors possible for the medium.
