Re: dvd won't read

I agree with Mr. hattonhall, but if your unit can read and play disc before probably you can use a CD Lens Cleaner to cleanse the LENS for it may be a dirty Lens that causes the Problem. Hope this helps..

Re: dvd won't read

My friend this could be caused by many things everything from a dirty OR damaged disk, or wrong zone or wrong tv mode disk ie, NTSC instead of PAL OR VICE VERSA! Or the laser unit could be stuffed or a cable connecting the dvd drive to the motherboard could be broken or out of place. Or the reader lens could be dusty or dirty. Some DVD disks need a damn good clean with warm soapy water to have any cleaning effect. clean and reins like you do the washing up! Check these things first. A word with a friendly local tech is the next step.....but we all know thats a money trail often more than the cost of a chepa new player!

Disney d-style karaoke won't read disk or spin disk

The problem is in the laser pickup assembly, the pladder motor is not working that spins the disk, and unfortuneately the only way to correct this is to replace the entire assembly which probably won't be cost effective.

Invalid disc reading

I find that I get the Invalid disk message most likely when I use a DVD-R disk. So now I use only DVD+R for this machine. I have also read somewhere that the problem could be solved by using a Laser Lens Cleaner Cleaning disk.

DVD Player stops reading disc Error message :

usually this happens when lens cannot read the the disc. Due to few reason 1 Your disk is scratched 2 Your DVD lens is covered with dust 3 You need to replace DVD lens
Try another few CD/DVD to rectify whether there is any problem with dvd you are trying to play
if this error occurs on all the dvd you played then the most likely proble is with your DVD lens either its coverd with dust use Disk cleaner if not you got to replace a new DVD lense as per model

"No Disk" message on front display

If when you insert the disk you hear a whirring and clicking noise, CD spins, and does not read, then that is a problem with the DVD lens.

The DVD lens try to focus on the DVD track, by moving lens pickup and spinning the disk, but cannot read the tracks because the lens is dirty or defective.

Try first cleaning the lens with a DVD cleaner disk. And also if you can see the lens from the outside try blowing some canned air on it.

If this still does not help, then the lens pickup may be faulty, in this case you often replace the whole DVD drive unit inside the DVD player.
