Disc shows loading then error on all dvd disc

Put a cd in the dvd player if it is marked that it plays cds... if it plays the cd your dvd laser is shot... cheaper to get a new unit. if it doesn't play a cd try cleaning the laser. and last but not the last thing try unplugging it for a short time then plug it back in... if nothing works get the one tool that fixs most everything...... take it to office depot and they can recycle the stuff inside and help keep the earth green...then onto wally world.

No disc displayed

The disc won't spin until the unit recognizes that there is actually a disc there. Try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that fails, try playing a CD. If the CD plays, the optics are starting to fail as reading a DVD requires higher laser power.

the play head of your device known as the ''lens'' is either dirty or bad thats why its selecting disc,try clean it with lens cleaner,if it still does the same thing call your technician,and tell him to change the lens for you.if he does the right thing ,it will work perfectly well.

Try a lens-cleaning DVD. If the problem persists, the internal drive will probably have to be replaced.
