I have a Digital Home Theater HT-DS400 Samsung. I have problems in reading a music CD or a DVD. You can read the message "Loading.." for a while and then stops and reads "NO DISC". ...


  • Make sure you have a non home made DVD. Some DVD players will not play DVD'S in certain formats.
  • If you have a normal DVD in the DVD player and are getting "NO Disk" then there is a real good possibility the lens is just so dirty that it is not recognizing your DVD at all. This happens a lot to all disk players that are neglected from the cleaning process. Get a disk player cleaner and run it through a few times until the disk is read again. Sometimes the lens is so dirty you have to try a few times just to get the cleaner disk itself to play just to do the actual cleaning. Make sure to run that cleaner disk through once a week. These disk cleaners "sweep" the lens and work well. You can get one at your local Best Buy for $8usd.
  • The last thing it could be is that somehow the lens has come out of alignment. Just a millimeter out of alignment is all it takes to not be able to read a disk and DVD players get bumped and knocked off the shelf easy. So this can happen often especially with the more smaller travel DVD player.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Hi i have a technika dvd / tv combo, it tries to read the disc but after a short while comes up the words no disc, what should i do?


Its sounds to me like your laser in the DVD needs cleaning or the disk you are trying to play is damaged. First you should buy a lens cleaner for your DVD. They are quite cheap.! Then clean the DVD lens.
Try another Pre recorded DVD Film. If this does not work , then maybe your Laser lens is not working. This then is a job for a repair person.
Hope this helps.

My AKAI tv/dvd combo - DVD quit working.


Most times it's video read issue such as a dirty lens on the laser.If you smoke in the house or use a fireplace there is a lot of airborn stuff to leave a slight haze on the lens making reading the disk impossible.Try a standard cd or dvd lens cleaner.The on that looks like a cd and uses alcohol on one of the cleaning brushes on the disk you've got a 50 50 chance.

good luck

Disk is not rotating?


If disk is not rotating, probably that the lens stopped reading and thus it stopped.

Can you do lens cleaning? If you have a lens cleaner, you can go and use it. Also, does the problem goes on even if you use other disks?

If the CD lens cleaner does not work, you might want to clean your lens manually by opening the cdrom and unscrewing the part that covers the lens. Get a soft cotton earbud damped in alcohol and rub gently on the lens. Then try playing those discs again.

If problem still persist, please let me know so that I could suggest other solutions.

Goodluck!

CD IS READING BUT DVD NOT READING IN ASUS COMBO DVD


Hello,

Try to clean you combo drive using disk cleaner. Also if you don't have disk cleaner then you can but it in the video and computer shop. Then try to insert another new cd to test if it really works after you clean the combo drive.

Thanks

Wont recognise any disk


When you get no disk error, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will start operating on certain disks better than others.

In that case you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD/DVD will not be read, therefore the error.

Whe this problem is starting you may be able to read only CD, DVD or Blue ray, or for example only DVD-R and not +R , or only to read and not to write and so on. After more prolonged usage , often the unit goes losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all.

If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens problem.

Try first using a CD/DVD or Blue ray lens cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does not work you will need to disassemble the drive , and clean lens directly with q tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the CD/DVD lens, or the whole drive unit.
