Player says "no disc" when a disc is inserted

The player was left outside one night, and it got a little wet, so it's possible the components are fried. I opened it up and everything looks fine inside. When you put a disc in, the motor starts spinning, and the laser even works, but after a second or two it stops and the screen says "no disc."

Why does my sony DVP display "No Disc" for every disc; when they play fine in any other player?

Sony tend to have a notorious disc lasers... couple of things you might want to try..

1. clean the lens using a standard Lens cleaning CD.
2. Try playing a CD (music) instead of DVD (if this is likely that the lens is not reading DVD)

Displays no disc

1.) If your display is no disk it's possible that your disk you inserted is corrupted or dusty, try to clean your disk with wet clean cotton.

2.) If does not work it is also possible that the CD is only a pirated, try to insert original CD and play it.

3.) If does not work again, try to remove the cover of your DVD and checked all the connections of the DVD connector from the circuit board, try to reconnect the connector and tightening it.

4.) Common problem from the DVD player is the sensor from the DVD reader checked if it is dusty or not, tries also to clean it with clean cotton.

5.) And if you try all of these method and your DVD still doesn't play again, it possible that the sensor from the DVD reader is defective try to replace the sensor with the help of technician.

I insert the dvd and player says loading, and then says no disk?

Ensure a disc has been inserted into the player. Verify that the disc being used is supported by the player. Clean the disc. Attempt to play a different, commercially produced disc. Remove the disc and leave the player on for a half hour to resolve the possibility of moisture condensation inside the player. If the issue is still unresolved, service may be required.

Philips PET710 DVD player shows 'no disc' when disc inserted

I have the same problem with my portable dvd player and found that cleaning the lens of the player using a non-alcolhol wet nap for cleaning eye glasses worked well. I also found the rail that the optics runs along while playing needed a very small amount of silicone greese applied using a Q-tip. You may find that the optic unit may be "stuck" somewhat but can be resolved by gently moving the optic along its guide using a finger.

This changed my unit from not working at all, to working intermittantly sometimes having to vary the player on and off to recongnise the disc. Hope this works

OPEN error stays on when disc inserted

There is a pressure switch that gets pushed down when the disc door is closed. Ether the arm on the switch is busted, the switch is bad or a busted wire to the switch.

Will not play any DVD

I may have bad news for you. Here's my story with the PVD4744S.

I watched over an hour of a DVD-video disc one night, no problems. The next night, I played only the intro; then the DVD player gave a message, "This type of disc cannot be played. Please insert another disc." Thereafter, I couldn't play any of several DVDs.

The manual gives little help:

My disappointment is exacerbated by the declining availability of DVD/VHS players with an RF modulator. Maybe Panasonic should create a repair kit for aging devices.

DVD player not working right

Check your cables between your DVD player and the TV, this play has component video outputs that could possibly cause this issue.
