Its the problem of the main circuit board in the unit.actually the neg.disk requires more power from the board then normal disks.the actual system is when you insert normal disk the laser lens which you called eye.that reads the normal inserted disk from siome particular distance.but when you insert neg.disk in the player ,at that time the laser lens comes more nearer to the neg.disk then normal disk.so in your player the lens is not moving more near to read the neg. disk.this is happening because of main board.as its not giving the command to the laser lens to function when neg.disk is inserted. so the error comes up as wrong type or dirty disks. in this problem on the main board sometimes there is not a single burnt spot.but internally the tracks get short.this can only be checked by multimeter.this can be easily got repqaired by a local repair center.who is familiar with electronics parts repair and knows how to use meltimeter and soldering iron.also the cost will be negligible. to much usage of the player in this same condition also makes the laser lens weak.because when ever you insert the neg.disk in the player the lens has to function.but due to main board problem the lens cannot read the disk and the pressure is applied on the lens every time.so to avoid further damage of board towards lens assembly get it repaired. this will help you. thanks.please do rate the solution.thank you for using fixya.keep updated.

I get the disk dirty message when I try to play a DVD R disk that I just recorded with a Sony VRD-MC6 video converter. It states in the book that some players will not accept DVD R disks, is that what is...


IT MIGHT BE. BUT MOST OF THE NEWER PLAYERS WILL PLAY ALL TYPES OF DISKS. I WOULD FIRST TRY TO CHANGE YOU BRAND OF DVD R'S. I HAVE USED MEMOREX DVD+R FOR ALMOST 10 YEARS AND I HAVE ONLY HAD 3 BAD DISKS BUT I BURN ABOUT 4-8 MOVIES A WEEK. SO I COUNT MYSELF LUCKY. PLUS ANY ONE WHO BORROWS A MOVIE HAS NEVER COMPLAINED. HOPE THAT HELPS IF NOT SHOOT ME A RESPONSE AND I'LL GIVE YOU SOME MORE TIPS.

Try a different brand of blank dvd+r or -r. you will find that your dvd machine is fussy on what discs it plays. More exspensive dvd players are fussy with what dvd discs you put in, as cheaper dvd players would virtualy play most types of dvds.

DVD movies not playing but CD-ROM games and CD's do?


With the disk inserted, 1) double-click on MyComputer, 2) right-click on the DVD, and select Auto Play from the resulting menu; a window will appear, 3) click on your favorite DVD playing software and 4) check the little box below to do the same every time you insert a movie (as it used to be).

Dvd player only plays some movies


it might be sevral reasons:
1. Check if region code is the same for movies you playing and DVD player
2. If you using video CDs or copyed DVDs, player might be preventing to playback those kind of discs, due to copyright laws or due to different speed settings for DVD player and discks you using (for intsrance you player can playback DVD/CD+R, and you using DVD/CD-R, or mximum allowed playback speed is 16 you using disk recorded at 24, but this is in case you using burned/copied CD/DVDs)
3. Check it lens is durty. For that use CD/DVD lens cleaning disk
($6 in Walmart, if you are in US)
4. Check if movies you are have the same coloring system, i.e NTSC for US
5. Check CD/DVD for scratches, some DVD players can not playback scratched disks
Please kindly let me know if my information was helpfull for you or you need more info
Good Luck

Unable to play a DVD movie


Most probably the TV system is not compatible.
This VCR/DVD uses NTSC formate. Is the DVD in PAL formate. Also the Region code can be different. This DVD palys DVD-Disks with regional code 1 or All.

It could be the lens on the laser. There are special cleaning disks for that.

My Smasung DVD/VCR Combo stopped reading DVDs because of a dirty read head. It started by only playing disks sometimes, and progressed to never playing disks. I assumed it was a dirty laser lens so I bought a lens cleaner set. Unfortunately my player wouldn't play the cleaner disk.

So I took it apart and cleaned the laser lens manually with some isopropyl alcohol (the clenser that came with my cleaning disk), and a lens cloth (that came with my glasses). Just open the case (starting with the screws in the back) and remove the snap in cross panel that obscures the lens of the DVD portion. Put a drop of cleanser on the lens and gently wipe it with the cloth.

Oh and by the way, I take no responsibility if you break your own player while following my instructions. My own DVD player was far out of warranty at the time I cracked it open.
