DVD does not recognize disc

I have a Panasonic TV/DVD/VCR Combination - PV-DF2004 and the DVD tries to read the disc and then says it does not recognize the disc and to put in another.  I have tried using a head cleaner and blowing out any dust without success.   Does anyone have any idea of what I would need to try for the next step.  I had put it on  Craigs List for $75 and when I found out the DVD did not work, I reduced the price to $50, but if I can fix the problem myself that would be a better solution.  If anyone can help me with this issue, I would be most appreciative or if you need more information to solve my problem, please email me.  Thank you.  CJ

    Appreciate your prompt response.   If I had to purchase a laser unit, do you have an idea what the cost maybe and whether it would be worth it on a 4 year old TV.

Hi..if a lense cleaner  dont solve the prolbem then you can replace the laser unit itself if that type of cleaning also dont work means and you think you are capable of taking the casing off make sure you switch it off first this should send the laser to the center of the laser tray if you take the case off and it is not in the center it might just be that it has got stucked sometimes gently pushing it back to the middle will get it working again if it is already in the middle then it could be that the laser needs replacing but if not in middle push gently dont shake the device too much it  should be quite hard to push any way when you push back to middle try a disk  but please make sure you dont touch anything while device is it is plugged in if nothing works then it probably is the laser but before you do anything as soon as you get the case off switch it on and put a dvd in and make sure the disk is spinning.. if its not spinning then ur laser unit is damaged..

thank u

My dvd on my tv has stopped working,this is the 2nd tv first one did just the same


This is EXTREMELY common and is why I absolutely do NOT recommend buying combination units. You can order a replacement drive for it (usually), but it will often not be worth the price (the laser assembly is often over $50 and can sometimes be in the $100's.)

Describe your Panasonic PV-D4743 DVD Player / VCR Combo Problem I DO NOT HAVE REMOTE FOR THE DVD/VCR. WILL A UNIVERSAL REMOTE SOLVE THIS? I HAVE A SHARP TV WHICH ALSO LACKS A REMOTE.


Universal remote may give you few controls like power on-off, FF, REW etc but Menu may not open.
Substitute remote for this Combo is available in Remotes.com and original remote is available in Panasonic Parts under part number LSSQ0374
Same thing goes to your Sharp tv.
Thanks.

Stuck DVD in Magnavox combo TV/DPD player...how to remove?


Unplug it from the wall, wait an hour to discharge it completely, flip it over, take the back cover off, access the dvd mechanism (you will have to remove temporarily some boards to have full access) and unscrew the top arm - one screw on either side. Take off the disk and reassemble it.

ekimt,

Yes, it would not recognize any type of disc. The disc icon was always present on the display even though no disc was inserted. Also, mine went out while recording from HDD to DVD. Panasonic had mine repaired in two business days and it' s working great.
