Question about LG V181 DVD Player/VCR

1 Answer

Disc Error with all DVDs

I have put new and old DVDs in my V181 VCR/DVD Combo and it says Disc Error with all. Could this be due to needing the laser cleaned or will I need a new DVD player? The VCR works fine.

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.

LG V181 DVD player/vcr combo doesn´t read de DVD´s


You need to go inside and clean the lens yourself with Servisol video 40. You might need to wipe it with a cotton bud etc. Allow it to dry before checking. Repeat it several times if it doesn't clear up first time.
PS check the lens for damage with a magnifiying glass! First!!

Dvd player won't work, says no disk


Greetings,

I do not have good news for either of you. These are notorious for having cheap lasers in them and their original purchase price usually makes a repair cost prohibitive. If you are having an intermittent problem where the disc will freeze - then play - then freeze - then play this is often the first indicator that the laser is failing. One easy way to confirm this is to play a compact disc in the player. CDs are easier for the player to read than DVDs are. If it plays CD and you continue to experience problems with DVDs this usually indicates a laser failing. Remember, when buying a consumer electronic product, the price of a thing usually reflects the quality of that thing.

As for cleaning discs; if a laser has enough residue built up on it to prevent the error correction system from overcoming it, then the microfine brushes on a cleaning disc will probably be ineffective at removing that build up. Cleaning discs are akin to the old VCR cleaning tapes, usually ineffective.

Sorry for the bad news,
Rob

DVD PLayer says no playback on all DVDs. New & old.


The laser might be defective in that case you will have to have a laser power meter to determine if the laser is bad or not. If you do not have a laser power meter take this set to the shop.
