  • Anonymous Oct 31, 2008

    i am having the same problem with my onkyo. it has some sort of buzzing sound when it reads the dvd then moves on to next disc. It only reads the audio cd and won't go to the dvd and play them

    The longer I own this player, the fewer DVDs are readable. Very frustrating.

If it reads only the first track, it sounds like a mechanical obstruction of the laser assembly (something is physically blocking it from travelling on its rails). If you are so inclined, try removing the deck lid andgently pushing the laser (in an area where there's nothing fragile) along its track to see if it frees up. It doesn't usually take much.

My dvd gaves me a bad disc


when you play nothing but bootlegs in a dvd player, they tend to burn out the eye inside the player to where it will only read bootlegs. the original movies capabilities won't work anymore. hope this is a help to you my friend.

There are a couple of things to look at: First of all does your computer have software to read copy-
protected DVD's. Second if this anime set of DVD's is imported from Japan it might not be compatible with players from the US. If you look on the Internet you can find patches for your DVD player software to read foreign DVD's. Check out VLC and libdvdcss.

Disc error


Hello,

how long have you been using the player. There is every tendency that the lens (laser) of your player is weak and that's why it cannot read or play DVDs.

The lens (laser) is what makes the player reads discs, and if the lens is weak/dirty, there is no way it can read or play disc.

Get a lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens, if that does not solve the problem, then its means, the lens needs to be changed completely.

Good luck.

Either your lens of the dvd player is dirty or the dvd's you put in have no data on them

Toshiba dvd rom sd r6012 isn't reading the DVDs


Try some factory CD and DVDs and just try to get them to open in Windows (not play in a media player program). If you get errors on every disc you try, it may be your CD/DVD hardware packing in.

If it reads some CDs or DVDs and not others, particularly media discs, you may be having software driver problems, otherwise, it is likely hardware.

Try inserting the disc and spinning it up while resting the laptop on its side, or even upside down. If it reads sideways or upside down, the CD/DVD reader hardware has gone and cannot probably be prepared (this is a symptom of physical controller failure and is ot fixable by normal means).

Good luck...
