    Ok you said you have tried to clean and you have tried adjusting the potentiometer. These would be the first things to try and test the player with. After doing this if it still does not work the lens itself needs to be replaced.

Incert dvd read out sats NO


Hello
This usually happens when the DVD or laser lens pick-up has become dirty.All you need to do is

1. Check the disk for scratches.

2. Make sure the disk you are using fit the correct format specified by your DVD player.

3. Clean the laser lens with a DVD laser cleaning disk.

4. Insert a correctly formatted undamaged disk into your player,listen to see if it begins to read the disk,if it continues to make no sound.

5. Open the DVD player carefully and clean the lens with isopropyl alcohol and cotton swab.

6. If none of these solutions works out then a professional repair technician will be able to tell you if fixing your DVD player is worth the money.
BEST OF LUCK

VCR will play, DVD returns disk with"check disk"-will not accept


Dirty or defective laser lens. try manual cleaning of the lens if you know how to open the unit top cover. manually clean the lens using cotton swab gently rubbing it in circular motion. blowing of air to remove dust will not really help clean the lens.

Cannot read discs


this dvd sucks. I just bought it around 5 months back and it as working fine till now. Now no matter what kind of disks i try to play on it, it has a common answer. " the disk vant be played".

i guess the problem is with laser reading lens. u may try to the following guide but i am going to dump this machine to samsung service stations as it is still covered by warranty.

it sucks wont buy this brand again.

Step1 Make sure the laser pickup lens is actually the problem. There are a wide variety of reasons that a DVD player might not read a disc efficiently. The disc could be scratched or dirty, for example. Test the DVD player with a disc that you know works before trying to clean the lens. Step2 Purchase or borrow a lens cleaner disc and try it first. You can find these things really cheap at any large department store. They usually get the job done well. However, you may need to clean the lens manually if the store-bought cleaner fails. Step3 Remove the outer casing of the DVD player. Remove the screws that mount the top casing onto the bottom of the DVD player and slide the top casing off. This will expose the DVD deck, which houses the laser pickup lens. Step4 Find the lens. The lens will be glass and under the DVD clamp. The lens will probably have a blue tint to it. If you are having trouble finding the lens, you could shine a light on the components and watch for the reflection. Step5 Use a cotton swab and some isopropyl alcohol to gently wipe the lens. Just a quick scrub will do. Dry the laser pickup lens with the other end of the swab. Step6 Give the lens a few seconds to dry and replace the covering of the DVD player. Test the efficiency of the player. If necessary, repeat the process. jQuery('.Article .Steps .Image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); });

Disk error


That means that the lens are dirty, and the unit cannot read any disk.

Try first cleaning the lens using a lens cleaner kit (the ones with liquid cleaninc solution), like the one here :
Allsop Ultra Pro Lens Cleaner for CD, DVD and Game Consoles

Ifthat does not work, then you will need to access the lens inside theunit by opening the cover and accessing the lens pickup, and gently clean lens by using isopropylalcohol and ultra soft soft cotton sticks.

Here is how the lens look like:

The disk does not spin when placed in the dvd player


When the disc is loaded, the optics attempt to first determine whether or not there is actually a disc there. If that fails, the disk won't spin. The typical causes for this are:
1) The lens is dirty so that the optics don't realize that a disc is present.

2) The optics are bad and do not attempt the above.

Try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. That should resolve the problem. If not, try playing a music CD. If the CD plays but a DVD does not, the optics are failing and need to be replaced. If neither one will play, the optics have failed completely and need to be replaced.

Keep us posted.

Disc Skips


The non-technical answer would be that the lens needs to be cleaned. This is the first step for this type of problem. There are many things that can get the disk drive lens dirty like smoke, incense, dust, moisture. Open the unit and open the DVD cover. You will see the lens that reads a DVD. Get a cotton swab (the ones for cleaning out ears) and some isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) and moisten the cotton swab with the alcohol (moisten not soak) and gently (I mean, do not push hard or scrub hard) rub it on the lens. Now with a dry cotton swab, do the same. Let it dry for a minute (longer if the swab had more alcohol and it might have dripped down) and close the unit. Now try to play DVDs and let us know if it worked. Thanks.
