Clean lense with alcohol and soft cloth if you can carefully move eye to the start position and then clean. Try again.

My DCM-360 has stopped playing discs after my moving house. It spins the carousel, picks up the disc and then puts it down without spinning the disc up. Laser problem or disc-spinning-motor problem or...

Had a similar problem with my Denon. When I inserted CD it takes it in but immediately stops - like it doesnt sense the CD. Same problem with Single or Multi changer. Removed cover, removed reader ( 4 screws) and found lens had fallen out. Cleaned, reinstalled with touch of super glue on rim - works fine.

My samsung HT TQ22 dvd player doesn't play dvd's."DISC ERROR" appears each time I try to watch a movie. Any info on how to fix this problem would be greatly appreciated.

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.

Hp dvd/rw does not read discs

If the CD or DVD disks you inserted work in some other reader, then your reader is the problem -- even though it is properly connected to your computer, and Windows has the correct device-drivers, it is the "hardware" that is the problem.

When you insert a disk, rotate it to some position, i.e., top-lettering goes in first, and close the drawer. Do you hear the drive start to spin the disk? Open the drawer. Is the disk in the same (non-rotated) position? If so, then the motor that spins the disk is the problem. If the disk does spin, but nothing happens, then it is the "laser" part of the mechanics that is not working.

Replace it.

DVD player will not read any disc

The motor is on its way out - the H02 code indicates motor failure as in it cannot spin the disc. You can sometimes fix it but for how long is anyone's guess. Disconnect from the power, remove the three rear screws and two screws on each side (total 7) and lift off the outer cover. Now if you carefully reconnect the power BE VER YCAREFULLY NOT TO TOUCH ANY PARTS INSIDE THE CASE and put a DVD disc in as per normal, you'll will see that when the tray closes, the upper platen (a honeycomb disc) that sandwiches the DVD to the lower platen does not spin - it should. Give a gentle spin clockwise and it should spin up and the DVD will play. You may need to restart if you missed your chance first time. If you switch off and on, eject and close the tray, the spin should happen as normal. If it doesn't, your motor is knacked and not an economical repair. Buy a new player. If it spins time and time again, you may well have temporarily fixed it for a while.

Turntable is wacky

try loading half your discs on one side of the turntable and the other half on the other side and see if that solves it.

Disc won't spin. Disc doesn't show up in browser

You got a problem with the lasers data getting back to the Motherboard.
One of these could be your problem

  1. Laser lens is melted. Look at the lens with a magnifying glass to see if it or its supporting frame is melted. REplace the laser in this case.
  2. The ribbon Cable going from the Laser to the motherboard is damaged or loose.
  3. Your laser is burned out. Press the two interlock to override the door being open, to see if the laser even lights up. 2 switches, one at rear left corner, one behind the On/reset switch.
  4. Your Laser is dirty and needs cleaning look at it with a magnifying Glass to make sure you got it clean. Use Q-tip and window glass cleaner, not alcohol.
