My HK dvd101 player reports "disk error" with every disk

I have a second HK DVD 101 of the same age. It does not have a disk error with any dvd. It (the defective DVD101) sounds as tho it's going through the motions internally, but always fails.

Any ideas guys? I use to work for HK at Madrigal. (Tis why I have two.) I B A Bench tech. I'm looking for a short cut from someone who knows the 101 product. I worked w/ Audio Access product line.

Help !!

Thanks in advance.

Hello Fixya Team,

I've focused in on the location of the problem. ATT, I'm trying to find a replacement input control board from Harmon. Not looking good tho. It acts like a cold solder joint or a flaky connector.

Thanks for getting back to me. If I end up stuck, I'll get back to you.


TKS,
BG

All the dvds I insert are reading disk error.


Sounds like it is time for a new unit. your problem is not worth fixing as it is either a failing laser pickup due to age, or the laser beam is caked with tar from smoking.

New blurays are quite inexpensive.
Please dispose of the unit responsibly.

Record errors


If your dvd player only supports dvd+r discs then that is the only way it will record. It will only record once onto the dvd-rw and, since it doesn't support the re-writables, it won't be able to use this function. This is the most likely reason for the first error. The second problem is a little confusing. Is it when you are trying to record on dvd-rs or dvd-rws that it says it can't record? I hope this post was helpful (for the first error, anyway). Good luck! I hope everything works out! Sincerely, Der Strom

The dvd player says it is loading, but then


there are two solutions to that,
firstly open the dvd and check that the disc in side is turning round. if not check the servo control on the card. if it is turning then check the second solution.
secondly, check the senser bulb if its caming on when the disc is turning. this also can be replaced.
thanks finding from fixya.

Solutions to incorrect disk error c105 & c104


Hello gjbrokke,

First make sure the disc is compatible with the dvd player (CD-R+ , or CD-R - )

Second make sure the region code of the dvd you burned is compatible with the dvd region settings on your dvd player.

One of those two are preventing the disc from playing in your sansui player.

Dvd player error code h2


On my DVD-LV50, I was able to re-initialize and fix a different error (error code H05). It might work for you, too.

With no disk in the player, press and hold these buttons for 4 seconds:
  1. Back skip -- [ |<< ]
  2. Pause -- [ || ]
  3. Play -- [ > ]
The screen will go blank, then say "Initialized."

After that, it worked like new.

I hope that helps.

Finalization of Disks


Failing to Finalize and thus making the DVD 'playable' on other DVD Players is most often caused by the media (your blank disk), not the Recorder. Trying another disk, from the same 'stack' or manufacturer will often have the same result. But, it is a 'hit and miss' situation. As you have the recording on the hard drive it can be worth your while connecting another basic DVD Recorder to input the material to a disk in that recorder. Sounds silly perhaps, but I have actually done this - and had the disk finalized in the second unit.

DVD reports: No disk when I try to play a DVD-R record by me


Dvd-R and +RW are two different formats. Check to see if your player should play -R disc.

Dvd recorder wont finalize etc


The DVD drive works harder when trying to record the info faster. As the unit ages, tracking is less precise. DVD-R copies occur at 4-16X real time. Try DVD-RW disks which copy slower (now that the price has dropped substantially), and you may find that your aging drive can still copy programs from the HD to the DVD.

DVD 10


It either needs some cleaning to the lens, or it might be that the player can't make the switch to read DVD's. It's my understanding that the laser has to change it's characteristics depending on the media it's reading. I believe what the drive does is try different laser settings (such as beam size, and intensity) until it can read the media. Your player might have a fault with this feature. If opening the player chasis and brushing dust of the lens doesn't fix it, you should take it to a decent lab to get an estimate for repair. It might be minor, as some further cleaning, or it might be more critical, parts replaced etc. Good luck
