Nothing. the dvd deck needs to be replaced probably due to a bad optical pickup (laser). The cost of this would be more than buying a new unit.

SOURCE: dvd drive dose not recognise any dvds i put in it keeps saying unknown disc

If your unit is older the optical pick up lens may be dirty or has gone bad. Most Philips units are exchange items only, meaning they replace it under warranty instead of fixing it, if its out of warranty there usually are no parts or service information on them. Philips was bought be Funai and is not the company it used to be. Check if the unit will play a audio CD, if it does the pickup assembly is bad, some will play a CD but not a DVD. You may be able to clean the p/u lens with alcohol and a Q-tip. The lens is under the clamp that holds the disc while spinning.

SOURCE: When I put dvd inside of dvd player, player says

I'm not really an expert in this area so please dont' be mad if I say something wrong, but I do know that in order for a disc to be read by the device, a laser has to shine onto the disc and when it reflects back, that's how it is read. I don't know if something is wrong with the laser or if it's just not reading it for some odd reason but maybe if you want it fixed you might would want to send it into the company or buy a new one.

Do you leave the unit on all day and night on standby?

If this unit gets to hot you can experience this problem I suggest that you turn the power OFF totally until the unit cools down and try again. Normally 15 mins is enough.

DVD player will play store bought dvd's but will say unknown disc when I insert one from Netflix.


Is it possible that this is a Blu-Ray disc from Netflix? If so, It may not be able to be read on a standard DVD player.
Another possible reason for this is that the disc is somehow damaged and thus unreadable.
I'm afraid without seeing the disc I am unable to help you further.
Either way, might be time to complain to Netflix:

My Sony Blue Ray has been updated with the lastest firmware yet I still get UNKNOWN or No disc when I load ANY disc.It will eventually work if I eject and reload several times.Help??


If you can play standard dvd movies without a problem, then you are looking at a laser pickup assembly issue. The blue ray disc require more precision to provide the higher resolution when it is demanded, this is an early indicator of impending failure in the assembly. However there is a small chance that cleaning the laser pickup lens may solve the problem but unlikely.

My 2 1/2 year old LG dvd/vcr recorder will play some dvds but will not play others. It says unknown disc. I was told to try a lens cleaner; I bought one and the lens cleaner says unknown disc as well. ...


Hi,

Your DVD /VCR says unknown disc because the
dvd which you have inserted is not of the supported format by player.

If you insert unsupported formats only it will say as unknown disc.This is not related with disc cleaners.

Please insert the supported formats and it will play the disc.

Thanx

Just installed a LG WH08LS20 in my computer, everytime I put in a Blu-Ray disc the computer freezes up. Any ideas?


The exact same thing happens to me. It reads Blu-Rays, burns DVDs fine, but when I put in a blank Blu Ray disc to burn, it freezes. As soon as I open the tray, the computer continues as normal as though nothing happened. I can't find anything on what is going on.

It keeps saying unknown disc,every time i put a disc in there every disc that i put in the player...it will not play it...it keeps saying Unknown-disc...including an audio-disc.


hi, try first to insert a clean up CD, and test your Cd or Dvd player with an original CD or Dvd, if the problem persist , your laser sense is defficient you have to go to fix it to a specialist.
hope this helps you
