Panasonic DVD player stuck on Reading

When I insert one particvular DVD, Panasonic DVD player says Reading but won't play the disk. Tried many times. Once got stuck on Opening as well, but finally opened. The disk does play in my computer DVD player. Another DVD of the same kind plays fine on both. Could this be a problem with that particular DVD? Could it be fixed? No other problems experienced with the player..thanks for any advice.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I will try it for sure, once I find out where the optical lens is (?). Do I have to open the player? Anyway, it still seems really strange that it is the only DVD that doesn't work in the machine. I tried making a copy of it and the copy doesn't play either...hmmm...

Hi,
I had a similar problem with my Yamaha DVD player which just kept displaying "reading, reading and reading"- eject-no disc or disc error. I took it into be repaired and was told it needed a new optical lense-cost $120.00 plus fitting.I was told not viable to fix. Not convinced I had a look on the internet and a suggestion given was to buy a can of Air Spray from **** Smith,$14.00 later and blowing the proverbial out of the inside of the unit-Bingo it works for about an hour and then, away we go again-reading reading reading - eject-no disc. Back to the internet and i found a DVD technician who advised the more often than not the problem is a dirty optical lense, and he has saved 100's from the grave by the following method. The most effective way to clean it is with a cotton wool bud soaked in Isopropyl Alcohol and give it a good rub without damaging it. I got the Isopropyl alcohol for $12.00 a 250 ml bottle from the local chemist and did what was suggested. IT WORKED and is still going- not sure for how long but the bonus is I can use the remainder for rubbing down my tired old body, as after shave or a refresher, in addition to fixing DVD's so not all is lost. It's worth a try considering I was going to throw the Yamaha away. Thanks to the internet and the good people who share their knowledge I am happy again.
Hopefully it will work for you. If not, don't forget the other uses for the alcohol.

DVD stuck in my Panasonic DMR-E30


Hi Rock.

I had the same problem like this on my machine. The best way to fix it is to turn the machine off completely and hold on the eject button then turn the power on. You want the first thing the player does is to eject the disk without trying to read it first.

I hope it works let me know if it doesn't and i'll try and recreate the problem on my player and see what i can do to get the disk out.

The last resort is to manually take the disk out but lets cross that bridge if my suggestion above doesn't work.

Thanks

smeags.

H02


This weekend we were watching a movie. It started to skip. I thought it was a dirty disk, took it out, cleaned it with a dry cloth and put it back. Now nothing will play.

When I insert a disk it starts to revolve the machine says reading, two zeros appear and the it stops. My wife noted a message H02 and the manual says to call for an explanation.

We tried turning the machine off and on and we tried pulling the plug -- no luck. What is the problem?? Jeff

DVD doesn't play any disk anymore. Displays a message: this can't of disc can't be played ... I tried several different types of disks.


Same here! It would say something along the lines of "this type of disc cannot be played. please insert a different disc." it's the appropriate dvd region, i've tried all types of dvds, and it still won't work. the vhs and cd still works, it's just the dvd player that won't.

Playing recordable dvd


My Emerson won't play anything except DVD Movies, never has, wasn't suppose too. Make your movies in DVD Video format and it will read them fine (unless it's broke). I make movies all the time and play them back in mine. It reads DVD-R, DVD+R, and in duel layered. It will not read RW disks!

Man I've every problem you can imagine with DVD Players. I've found when the disk gets stuck, as long as it's not jammed. You can turn the unit off or unplug it. Plug it back in but DON'T TURN IT ON! Instead hit the eject button and the drive should open the drive without trying to read the disk.
