I bought a H/K BDS 270/330 second hand and it played CD's well but after inserting an older DVD it displayed DISC ERROR. It did however play a new DVD. When calling the H/K service desk the gentleman advised to clean the lens with a DVD lens cleaner disc. That really helped! The problem is solved. Thumbs-up for H/K service!

SOURCE: DVD'S stop playing

Hey folks,

I have a Lifestyle 48 with the same issue. I spoke to tech support at Bose and had it explained to me this way. My Lifestyle 48 was purchased in 2006, but the hard drive and the optical reader were from as far back as 2004. Well since that point most new DVD's are double embedded, if I remember correctly. Now the manufacturers embed more information on the DVD in a double layer. They stick all those director's cuts and all the other **** that no one watches all on one DVD now instead of requiring two or three DVD's. Ultimately, this f***s up your Bose system. As for me, every DVD that I try to watch now freezes up at some point and gives me a Cannot Read error. The tech I spoke with at Bose said this is an industry wide problem and he had the same problem with his XBox. It has become so prevalent that Microsoft is now saying not to use the XBox to play DVD's. The tech I spoke with said they could send me a firmware update, but there is no guarantee that it will correct the problem. His suggestion was to have the system in to have the guts replaced. This is something that Bose is doing free of charge plus they give you a new 1 year warranty on the new parts. Since I spoke to them they have sent a box to my house with all the packing material. My job is to pack up the main unit and ship it off to Framingham, MA. I have been told that repairs and returns are currently taking 3 to 4 weeks. I do suggest you call Bose, talk to them and they will take it from there. In my case they are definitely standing behind their product. Good luck.

SOURCE: Bose Lifestyle 38 Unsupported Format message

All you have to do is carefully take the top off and clean the "Iris" which is the reader with a little alcohol and cotton swab. Bose will charge $165 plus shipping to do this. Go to website metacafe.com and search how to clean DVD players and it will show a video, easy to understand.

SOURCE: my samsung HT TQ22 dvd player doesn't play

Take the top case off the unit, power on, and place a dvd into disc tray. Press the play button and see what happens. It should find the dvd, clamp it in the reader and then spin it at high speed. If it does this and still says disc error, then the read head is bad. If it does not spin at high speed, then the epindle motor is bad. This is the more common error with Samsungs. Repair shop time.

My harman kardon player will read blurays, however it wont read dvds. Any idea why?


More than likely the lens that read dvd discs has failed. On blu-ray players, there are two (2) optical lens. One reads blu-rays and the other dvd/cds. They are independent of one another.

I cant play some blu-ray disc how can i get some of them to work


since it doesn't have enough RAM in it, some BDs or larger multi-layer DVDs fail to play/load entirely Its slow to buffer BD, and even slower to upscale DVDs. It doesn't support homemade DVD+/-R movies. It also doesn't support video on CD.

SOLUTION:
to get the movie to play add a 4GB SD card into it and format it for use as extra memory. Apparently, some BDs require a lot of memory. By adding the SD card, DVDs and THE BDs load faster and have no play problems. The overall downside to the RAM issues and the SD card is that, when the SD card gets full,you will have to reformat it to get anything to play. Tho, all lost disc info needs to be rebuffered onto the card the next time you watch the movie.

Disc shows loading then error on all dvd disc


Put a cd in the dvd player if it is marked that it plays cds... if it plays the cd your dvd laser is shot... cheaper to get a new unit. if it doesn't play a cd try cleaning the laser. and last but not the last thing try unplugging it for a short time then plug it back in... if nothing works get the one tool that fixs most everything...... take it to office depot and they can recycle the stuff inside and help keep the earth green...then onto wally world.

Check disc error


When you get a please check disc error when playing a DVD in your DVD machine, this is a signal that the lens of the DVD machine is getting weaker. I would ask you to try and play a CD in that machine. If it plays that means the lens of your DVD machine is weak. You have to change or purchase a new DVD machine.
