Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

I have a Rio HT2030 Home Theater manufactured by Sonic/blue. When I placed a DVD in to play, I received an error message, could not read. I put in a CD in the same unit, and it played the music CD. I know the manufacturer went bankrupt some years ago. Looking for an easy fix, if there is one.

I have one of these as well. It has the same problem playing DVDs. Here's what works for me: Put the DVD in, wait one second, and shake the unit up an down for about one second. It usually takes a few tries, but eventually it plays the disc.

LG blue ray home cinema fault error reads: open,reading,error,open,close.


If this is the DVD withing the unit, try playing a CD. If that works, most likely, the Optical Pickup(laser) in your unit has worn out. These are two lasers in your Optical Pickup, as the wavelength of light between the DVD and CD, so although your DVD doesn't work, the CD may.
If you are interested in having your LG repaired, please look to my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

Dvd sometimes reads error


If this problem occurs only at this dvd it's a disk problem. If it occurs on various disks try using a cd/dvd cleaner set, a wet one is better. Follow the instructions on the set. The main idea is to put one drip of the included liquid at the set (usually isopropyl alchohol) at a specific place (like small brush) on the disk surface and play this disk. That way the "brush" will clean up the laser lens and after that the cd/dvd player will be able to read the disks. BE CAREFULL not to put too much liquid on the "brush".

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs".

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.

Place DVD in any slot and it says "reading disc" then "no disc"


When you get no disk error, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will start operating on certain disks better than others.

In that case you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD/DVD will not be read, therefore the error.

Whe this problem is starting you may be able to read only CD, DVD or Blue ray, or for example only DVD-R and not +R , or only to read and not to write and so on. After more prolonged usage , often the unit goes losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all.

If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens problem.

Try first using a CD/DVD or Blue ray lens cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does not work you will need to disassemble the drive , and clean lens directly with q tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the CD/DVD lens, or the whole drive unit.

NO DISC message


Open up the unit and clean the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that does not resolve the problem, try a music CD and report the results here. I suspect that the optics have begun to fail. If that is the case, the music CD will play but a DVD will not. The optics assembly is available (part # RAF3023A-1) for about $60.

Go into the setup for your system and change the 'video' options from "adjust to fit" to "original". worked for me anyway.
