Question about Recoton Advent Advent DVD-8200 DVD Player

1 Answer

Every disc is a "Bad Disc".

I insert the disc. It will attempt to turn but just doesn't. Then the screen will read "Bad Disc". We have tried all kinds of disc, but none will work. I tried a disc cleaner. It turned the first time I tried it. Then I put a movie in and it still did not work. Now it will not even turn the disc cleaner DVD.

The laser unit is most likely faulty and requires replacement. There are usually separate laser diodes for the CD & DVD reading, so the CD might work perfectly while the DVD won't.

Insert disk all i get i load then it eject disk


Well it seems that your DVD player is having an issue reading the disc, I guess the first question is what kind of disc are you trying to insert? Is it a burned DVD or is it a movie dvd? This model is not a Blu Ray so if you are trying to use a Blu Ray disc then it will not read it. If you are trying to read a burned disc from someone then more then likely the disc was not finalized and is unable to recognize the disc, because the finalization process is where all the the information is written about what kind of disc it is and the format, codecs, etc. OR maybe the laser is dirty or the DVD player has kicked the bucket. Finally, the product DESC says it can read DVD-RAM, DVD-RW, DVD-R, DVD+RW, DVD+R, VHS formats, but I have found that some DVD units do not like certain brands of Blank DVDs. I hope this offers some ideas for you and good luck!

RCA DVD player model DRC105N that won't read discs anymore


If the DVD is not reading any CD, then it is often a lens problem.

If th lens cleaner does not work the unit must be taken apart, to clean the lens pickup with isopropyl alcohol and soft cotton tips.

In some case is necessary to replace the lens pickup, as this is defective.
