My dvd player is not playing , when I insert a disc it keeps saying no disc


Hello

The laser could have simply become bad. But usually it is just one or the other (meaning CD or DVD). I would suggest checking the cables going into the drive and make sure they are properly seated and haven't come loose somehow.

Try cleaning it this helps most of the times, use any of the cleaning disc available in a local computer shop if that does not work then try reinstalling and everything else fails take take it to your vendor

"No" message appears on player front.


Try inserting a cd, almost all dvd players can play cds as well, if it displays the same message you may very well have a defective dvd player, if it plays then you may have a damaged disc. If it plays the cd try a mint condition dvd; also, I'll assume that you know better but in many cases if the dvd player is not defective users are simply loading dvds in upside down. If all this fails return your dvd player to the store or check the warrenty.

I hope this helps, good luck

It keeps saying unknown disc,every time i put a disc in there every disc that i put in the player...it will not play it...it keeps saying Unknown-disc...including an audio-disc.


hi, try first to insert a clean up CD, and test your Cd or Dvd player with an original CD or Dvd, if the problem persist , your laser sense is defficient you have to go to fix it to a specialist.
hope this helps you

Wont play


There is no simple "at home" solution to any of these problems listed. However, Since it tries to play or at-least plays Cd's, then that will indicate that affordable repair is possible. I have already repaired several of the Dual units already. With the 7" Dual screen sets, I had to replace the laser assembly or the spinner motor (not spinning fast enough). With the 8" Dual Screen sets, I found mostly that the laser ribbon was binding up in the movement of the laser and preventing it to move to proper position. These repairs should be done by a qualified technician.

DVD PLAYER NOT READING DISC


Well I have been repairing dvd players a while now and the main problem spots are laser ,spindle motor, laser tracking motor and the biggest culprit and un suspecting one the lens cable .....most of them range from the lens cable to the spindle motor though... the constant movement of the lens in watching a whole movie causes the cable to unknowingly and slowly break and if the spindle motor is defective ,on inserting a dvd the disc spins slowly and you may hear the lens chirping ... so you can check those....
