If the disc spins for a minute then stops it may be your blu-ray laser. One way to check is trying to play a cd or dvd. If it works then know your having issues with the laser.

NAD T515 connected only to a Harman Kardon amp, and also skips for a second. Listen only to the cd spinning: a fault exists with the mechanism.

Replace the Laser head.
this Error is from reading the Disk. as long as the reader doesn't get enough Data from the disk it will continue spinning.

Good luck

My PC wont play album I requested.

You only need compatible dvd player software to listen to movie dvd disks. For playing standard audio cd disks, nothing is needed since this support comes built in-to the OS, (Windows XP or higher)

Disk 0 fails so no boot disk on the server

If you have a RAID remove all the drives use some canned air in the RAID cage and replace the drives. Turn the unit on and listen to the drive(s). Are they spinning? Are they making a clanking sound? (bad) if both are bad you will have to replace them and restore from a backup.
If you have a single boot drive do the same thing listen. If you have spin but still fails check the sas or sata cable. Unplug it then plug it back in of both sides with the power off.
If still no good the drive might be bad and you will have to replace it and then restore from a backup.
Hope this helps.

Playstation 3 (PS3) Console: hi, my playstation 3 wont play dvds or video games...

You can try powering on to your "diagnostic screen", (there are videos online to show you how) and try restoring your file system. If this does not work, listen to the area that you insert your disk while inserting. if it sound like it is spinning, then you may have a dirty lens. If it is making a "studdering noise" then your Bluray laser is bad and needs to be replaced. The part is about $50.00 on ebay on not hard to do.

This should tell you how to determine the laser model that you need. Your model number is on teh back left and starts with CECH

Screen say : no dish

the unit will say "no disk" if it is unable to read your disk ... that is often caused by dust or debree on the laser or the laser could be damaged ... the laser is the little lens that you see when the lid is open ... you can clean that with a soft tissue and some eye glass cleaner ..dont spray directly on the laser .. spray only on the tissue . very gently clean and dry the laser ... its mounted on a flexible mechanism so you have to be careful not to stress it ... also clean your disk . if the laser cleaning doesnt help then it may be damaged or worn out .. make sure the laser wiggles freely as if it was on a spring ... make sure the disk is actually turning .. you can listen for it to spin up .. ...
