My DVD player won't play my DVD's

One day it would play DVD's and the next it wouldn't. I tried to a lense cleaning DVD and I tried different DVD's, but it won't play them anymore. I called Tech support and all they could tell me was to make sure the disk was clean and that it was the correct region. Is there any way I can fix this on my own? My DVD movie (Cranford) from Netflix plays on my little portable DVD player but not on my other one DVD player connected to the TV. Yet when I put a different DVD movie (Streetcar Name Desire) into the DVD player connected to my TV, it works and reads it fine and I can see that movie. Why won't my DVD player (the one connected to my TV) read my Cranford DVD?

Won`t play dvd`s.try a cleaning disc no luck!possible dvd diode gone?any help please.Nigel...


Hi Nigel,
There are three reasons for discs not playing.
First, if the set has been lying for some time, the loading belt becomes lose and the loading is not complete. The result is no disc play.
Second, there is dust on the lense. Again the result is no disc play.
Third, the lense unit has gone bad or weak. Here also the result is no disc play.

Disk won't load


First make power reset.
  • Switch off your DVD, remove power card from wall out-let. Then connect again and power-up.
  • Use CD/DVD lense cleaner to clean the lense.
  • Then try out.
Thanks

DVD player wont play disks


hi, if your dvd player is giving you disk error message or no disk message then the chances are the laser lense needs cleaning.

What you need to do is go to any big computer store and purchase a dvd lense cleaning disk, dont buy the cheapest one as they tend not to work so go for mid range or top end one.
Then all you need to do is put this disk into your dvd player and it will then clean the lense for you and should solve your problem.

If how ever you still have the problem then try different disk in it to ensure the dvd your trying is working ok if after doing this you still have the problem then the chances are the laser unit itself is no good and needs replacing.
The problem with this is unless your dvd player is built into the telly then the chances are it would be cheaper to go out and buy a new dvd player as the cost of repair would more than likely cost more than the cost of a new dvd player

Dvd player won't play disc


There are a few different cleaning kits out there these days for DVD or CD players. I would recommend one that actually has fibers on it so the it brushes the lense of the DVD player. These cleaning kits can be found just about anywhere. Have you tried to clean it with anything?

DVD player keeps skipping and gets very blocky looking and then sometimes it just stops I tried cleaning both the lenses of the dvd player with dvd lens cleaner disc and cleaning the dvds nothing seems too...


It sounds like the problem is with the DVD's you've been playing. I've gotten those problems before, but not on every DVD. How many different ones did you try playing?
