The disc cleaners that can be purchased are little more than brushes that can clean dust only. If you can gain access to the lens of each unit, try cleaning the lens carefully using a cotton swab and alcohol. That should resolve some of the problems. If not, then for some reason you have multiple failed optics assemblies.

Dvd won't play my dvd's. keep saying no disc or wrong disc. what is the problem



  • Hi, Sounds like the lens is just really dirty. Go buy a leans cleaner disk and run it through the DVD player two or three times to get the lens good and clean. Repeat about once a month to keep the lens clean and running properly. Sometimes you need to run it through 3 or 4 times to get the lens to read again.

  • These disks I speak of have little bristles on it that "sweep" the lens clean. I use them on all my disk players and they work real well.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Regards, Tony

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

Hi, my philips dvd player model number dvp3360/05 has stopped reading disks. Wjen it loads a disk instead of going to the start screen it just goes blank and on the LED display it says title. Any ideas on...


Hello,

There are several reasons why your DVD player would stop reading discs.
1. Bad or dirty lens
2. Bad disc spinner motor
3. Busted capacitors on the mailboard

If you can open up your DVD player. Try to check for these problems.

DVD Player Not loading Movies


optical sensor is burned out or the spindle is not spinning the disk to read it.

Only says loading when started, does nothing


Hi, your problem is the laser lens, it went sour. This device is coded to read only region 1 disks, when U attempt to read other regions disks it will read them once, 2 or 3 times but then... it will stop reading any disk regardless the region they are. Regions codes were implanted on disks to control piracy, so USA has region 1, Mexico 4, Asia I believe is 3 and so on. There are a total of 6 regions worldwide, U have to get disks matching the region U are from or, better solution... get a multi-region DVD player.

Says no disk


With the power turned off, open the DVD Player, and then open the top where you load the DVD into the player. Locate the laser lens and notice that the laser is attached to a transport assembly that moves the laser diagonally outward in a slot. 1. Slide this assembly outward to the end of its track. 2. Slide the assembly back inward to the closest inward position. 3. Repeat the process of sliding the assembly outward and then back inward.4. Put in a music CD and let it play all the way through. This helps to calibrate the laser head assembly movement. When the music CD is finished playing. 5. Put in a DVD, and you should have a working unit again This is a factory solution from Mintek that was given to a customer who ask for help with the forever loading disc problems. This solution may work on other models of portable DVD players. Most portable DVD players use this type of transport mechanism. Try this solution it might work for you. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

Dvd keeps reading no disc


It can be several reasons
1. Disk is upside down
2. Lens is durty. You will need to use CD/DVD cleaning disk for that
3. Disk is having diffrent region code or recorded in diffrent formate (for instance player playback disk recorded in NTSC, and you trying to playback disk in PAL formate)
4.Disk is recorded at higher speed (for instanse player markered X16, but disk is recorded at X24)
Good Luck

Cant play anything on it


I had the same problem, After googling for a few minutes I found the reset procedure for this player.

1. Turn it on.
2. Eject any disk you have in there and close the tray.
3. Hold down the "STOP" button on the player (not remote) until the green light flashes red and the system reboots.
4. Insert disk and enjoy.

This worked for me... mileage may vary.

Problem with portable dvd player


i would return the item to your retailer as it should hold a 12 month warranty, as if it cannot read cds or dvd, the lens is faulty, and trying to repair it yourself will void your warranty. Please dont forget your ratings are important, thank you
