Dvd player makes noise, doesn't read discs

Have a panasonic f-86 dvd player. it makes a loud clicking noise when trying to read certain dvds (some just out of the packaging, some that are lightly scratched), and either doesn't read them at all or eventually plays them, but starts skipping and eventually breaks down.

    tried the vac, but still have the problem. it looks like the laser just can't get situated or something with the disc i tried. it's jumping all over the place with this dvd, but when i tried a cd it was fine. And the problem dvd (brand new) works perfectly in another dvd player. Um...?

    I have a Toshiba DVD player new at Christmas - I played a disc that froze - i tried skipping ahead, back- stayed frozen - so I ejected. Now the DVD player simply clicks and says every disc is a "bad" disc - though they play on an old player and my computer - is the laser messed up, can it be repaired?

Why does my Emerson VCR/ DVD Player Model # EWD2203 make clicking noises?


The laser lens is dirty. It is trying to read read read and it can't.

With the tray open, try cleaning the little lens thingie you see inside, at the bottom, with a moist cotton swab.

That otta fixya!

My insignia NS-PDVD8 is having a problem reading discs. Some dvds work fine but other dvds make the mechamical lens go back and forth rapidly make a loud chopping noise. What can i do


Try cleaning your disc with alcohol and a soft cloth. If you don't have a good clotH use tissue or toilet paper. Just maker sure you blow off the fibers that are left on the disc after you use a paper product. Hope it helps. If not by a SONY DISC PLAYER AND YOU WON'T HAVE THE PROBLEMS.

Cannot play certain dvd discs the make is panasonic model num nv vp33


Panasonic NV-VP33 is a DVD/VCR combo unit. These are good, but limited in DVD media playback formats. It depends on the types of DVDs you are trying to play, and their region codes (if they apply).

This model will NOT play:

DVD-ROM / DVD audio / DVD+R (unfinalised) / DVD-RW / Blu-Ray (obviously).

This model WILL play:

DVD-R (finalised) / DVD-RAM (no finalising required) shop-bought DVD movies / CD-R (for JPEG/MP3/DivX) / DVD-R DL (finalised) / DVD+RW (titled or with a top menu to make them compatible with other players, but again, finalising not required).

You didn't specify which DVDs do not play in your unit.

I would be very concerned if your player didn't read ANY DVDs at all. I assume the image below is what the model looks like. I have never had any problems with mine.

I'm having problems formatting discs for Panasonic EZ47 DVD recorder. Keep getting "formatting unsuccessful" message.


Now here are the types of DVDs that you can record to DVD-RAM, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, DVD+R, DVD+R DL, DVD-R DL
Now the only types that you can format are DVD-RAM, DVD-RW, DVD+RW
So first make sure you are not trying to format the wrong type of DVD. If you are using the correct type then you might want to try a different brand. Sometimes certain brands of DVDs have problems with certain players. You can also try updating your player's firmware and see if that corrects the problem also.

Magnavox MWR-20V6 DVD/VCR recorder fails to record one time but not the next This problem just recently started as the unit was functioning perfectly up to now. And I've kept the unit in excellent condition and free of any dust. What's happening is this. When the timer is set to record a program, the unit will turn on and begin to record. But after about 9-10 seconds of recording, it will fail and you'll see an error message saying you cannot record on this disk. FYI, this happens too when not using the timer and just pressing record. And in both cases, it's been hit or miss, so one time it successfully records no problem and the next time no. So you don't know when and if it's going to happen, which is really frustrating! What's even weirder is that once it failed, you can wait a few seconds and try recording again with possible success. So if it failed at first, it may work the next time, but who knows if it'll work after this. And even if it does work the next time, after that, it's again hit or miss. This recording problem happens even when dubbing. So it doesn't matter if you're copying from VHS to DVD, using the time, or just hitting DVD record, the same recording error happens. And as I said above, it may work the next time but who knows? And even if it worked then, anytime after that is also very hit or miss. Nobody else touches the unit and it's never been moved or banged. So again, I've kept it in very good shape and working order. No problems whatsoever on the VCR side. And I most often use DVD-R discs rather than RWs, but even with RWs, the same problem can happen. Lastly, finalizing has also become more hit or miss now when it used to be very consistent. So I don't even know when or if it'll be successful in finalizing a discs. Most times, it does work, but a couple of times, it hasn't. Lastly, a weird thing with discs that failed to finalize is this. A few of them were finally able to be successfully finalized after just sitting around for about a month of not being able to be finalized. So for whatever reason, a few of those discs that wouldn't repeatedly finalize suddenly worked. The rest of those that were not successful still cannot be finalized. And I've kept all these discs in plastic sleeves or in a disc case.
