Its due to faulty DVD Lens/Head/Pickup. Try replacing it with a new one.

My dvd won't play. every dvd i put in, it says bad disc. the vcr works fine. is it time for a new system. i tried a head cleaner and it says bad disc


Hello,
Not necessarily time for a new one. I would give the DVD player a good cleaning before you consider a new unit. A good cleaning disk with some little bristles on it. Run it through three full times. DVD players are far more sensitive than VCRs and have to be cleaned even two weeks or so. When they get real dirty it can take some fooling with to get the DVD player to even accept the cleaning disk. But if it just won't accept the cleaning disk and you can't watch a DVD in it then it's time for a new one. I had a DVD player one time that took an hour of fooling around with before it got cleaned good enough to play DVDs. Worked for a couple years afterward.
Regards, Tony

I don't know if my first REQUEST for Assistance was received, at any case, I REQUESTED to find WHY my GO.VIDEO COMBO Player is NOT READING any of my blank DVD DISC( SONY, IMATION, MEMOREX, DVD+R ), IT KEEP...


If there is nothing on the disc, it will read, "no disc". It will only read and/or identify discs with media loaded or burned onto it. Your unit is a player, not a DVD+R (recorder). Can record VHS, but not discs.

The machine keeps stating bad disc, for all dvds. We have the GoVideo DVD VCR combo... we tried playing several different dvds and the machine keeps coming up with "bad disc".


It could just be dirt on the lazer/lens. Try cleaning it with a good brand name lens cleaner for DVD/CD. If that doesn't do the trick there might be damage to the lens, or an electrical fault.

Disc unknown


Not all media discs are playable in all machines.Not all formats are supported in all machines.Coppied and Bootleg discs will not play on expensive players.Dirty,figerprints,badly scratched,all will have problems.Use a disc cleaner (liquid,and fine cloth) to remove scratches.Buy a $ 25-35 cheap player they play anything.Good Luck.

My daughters GoVideo DVD player always says CHECK DISC!


If no disk is detected it means that the lens are dirty or defective.
If the lens cleaner disk, or using Qtips and alcohol did not work, then the lens pickup or the disk drive must be replaced. this involves precision soldering and must be done by a technician. Regards.

"Bad disc" message


You can buy a CD/DVD player cleaner, which is basically a set of brushes attached to a CD. This will gently brush the CD/DVD laser and hopefully that will restore your player to full working order.
