Dirty disk?? Check the disk out make sure it is free of scratches,dirt,residue. You can also buy a DVD cleaner and clean the actual player and see if that is it.

I have a Rowe Ami Berkeley and it wont play a whole CD and when the box is not playing a selected track it keeps taking a cd out spins it for a few seconds and then puts it back and goes to the next one...


I don't know why a CD won't play completely, but I seem to remember a jukebox of this type that employed the disc shuffling routine you describe as an "eyecatcher" to get you to play it. It probably can be disabled somehow

Keeps reading no disc


discs can be faulty and lasers can be lazy try another dvd play and try another disc. if you can get a disc to play then try the the one that failed again straight after. persistent problems of this nature usually mean its time to buy a new dvd player

Says loading disc then no disc pops up and it just won't play. Tried the phillips lense cleaner still does same message (loading the no disc)


Hello,

The reason the player keeps loading and showing no disc is simply because the lens of the player is weak.

To fix this,

  1. Open the cover of the player with the appropriate screwdriver,
  2. Open the disc tray,you will see the lens, like a crystal or diamond like object,
  3. Replace the lens by removing it with the mechanism that supports it and fixing the new lens,
  4. Test it with a DVD disc.
  5. Cover the player back.
Take care

The problem you are having is the DVD player. Not all DVD players will play a burned DVD. Some set top DVD players are know for being very picky about what type of DVD's they will play, and Phillips is very bad about this.

If you have the owners manual for the DVD player, look inside and see what type of disc's are playable. if it should play them DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R. DVD+RW should all be listed.

Right now about 80% of DVD players do not play burned DVD's

In time they all will play them, but for some unknownn reason, some are still made without this ability.

Also, not all DVD-R's are created equal.

The best quality of DVD's to buy for burning are Taiyo Yuden. But Sony, memorex, and Maxell are also pretty good.

One way to be certain about the quality of the burned DVD's is to take one to a friends house or anybody you know who has a set top DVD player and see if it plays in their DVD player.

That will at least tell you if the DVD's you are burning are at fault or not. But my guess is that you r Phillips is the culprit here.

I hope this was helpful to you, if so a good rating would really be appreciated.

I have been buring DVD's since they started selling them for the PC. compatibility has been the only problem I have had.
My sony DVD player plays everything I throw at it.

Dvd's not playing


This might be a problem with the alignment of the actual laser in your device. You mentioned that you cleaned the player? Question, how? The reason I ask is because if you used alcohol and canned air you many have left a residue on the laser facet which would cause such a problem. I would suggest that you use an apporved fiber optic cleaning solution and attempt to clean the laser, (it is best to let a pro do this). Then check the laser alignment and power with a laser power meter.

Dvd "unknown disc" message coming up


Have you tryed to use a lens cleaning disc yet. The laser lens on these players and recorders alike, must have the lens cleaned every oince in awhile. If that does not help, most likly you have a bad laser pickup assembly and you will need to replace the plaer as to have that repaiered, you could buy a new unit. Good Luck
