SOURCE: No Disc message

Turn off the power.

Open the lid and gently push the laser mechanism to the outermost point of the slot.

Power on and try a disc again.

Also try cleaning the laser lens with a mild foam cleaner and cotton swap. Leave to dry and re-try a disc.

If neither work, then the laser is probably faulty. If the unit will play CDs but not DVDs, then this is a good sign of a faulty laser.

SOURCE: Won't play

Fixed it! I got a new laser/optical pickup (SF-HD65) and replaced the old one. Replacing it wasn't too hard, just a little fiddly. Once it got it all back together, I fired up the unit with the case open and could easily see the red glow of the laser through the spinning disk. This didn't happen with the old pickup. Every disk I put in (originals and burnt stuff) was detected.

Even though the new laser worked, I can't be 100% sure the 24 pin ribbon cable / flat flex cable (ffc) connecting the laser to the mainboard isn't dodgy (I didn't try the old laser again). It's very flimsy and I may have somehow managed to re-seat the connectors better or bend the cable enough to make a contact over a break. If I get the "no disc" error again I'll replace that with the same or similar. For all out there it has the following written on it Kotobo E188165 AWM 20798 80C 60V VW-1. It's about 25 cm long, has 24 pins.

Regardless, I'm happy I didn't send the player to landfill. For $15 + shipping, replacing the optical pickup was cheaper than buying a new player that plays as many formats.

This is a known problem with the DVP3020.

I am assuming that your lens cleaner is for CD as well.

Although identical, CDs & DVDs store data completely differently, which means DVD players need two lasers to read both formats.

It sounds like the DVD laser has failed on your player, which is why it will still play your lens cleaner.

Unfortunately the cost of replacing the laser outweighs the value of the player.
The DVP3020 has been replaced by the DVP3120 which is far more reliable.

The DVP3120 with a multi-region modification can be bought for £17.99 from CheapestElectrical.

You could try cleaning the laser using a laser cleaning disk. Most of the time when it cant read a disk its just because the laser is dirty. If that doesn't work it could just be a faulty laser

SOURCE: does not recognise discs

If this disc that you are trying to use is a DVD+/-RW and it has been used a few times for DVD-Video or DivX then you can try to do a FULL ERASE using the excellent ImageBurn by lightining now at v2.5.0.0 it takes about 20 mins to erase a full single sided DVD

Hope this helps.

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.

The DVD player built into the unit has suddenly stopped working. We can load and eject as normal, but it doesn't play the disc. Pressing PLAY displays the "No disk loaded" message.


Disc do not loads into it properly. Is a loading mechanism fault. Contact any service technician. The disc loading mechanism should take out from the set for repair. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Ferguson TV DVD fault - won't play discs


Check its loading mechanism for proper disc loading. Replace the loading belt first and check. If it does not help you, insert a cleaning disc into it. If the fault is with accumulated dust or dirt on the laser pick up lens, it will be cleared out. If not, replace the laser pickup unit.

We can't get the factory 6 disc cd player to load more than 1 disc. What is the sequence for loading additional discs?


The following is the owner's manual for your 2004 Dodge Neon:

http://www.dodge.com/en/owners/manuals/index.html?year=2004&nameplate=Neon

P.99 describes how to load discs:

1. Select and press any numbered button without an illuminated light above it.
2. Insert the CD while the light above the chosen button is flashing and the two lights on either side of the slot are illuminated.
3. Upon insertion, the CD will begin to play, and both the button light and the lights in the corner of the loading slot will illuminate.
4. Repeat the process for loading any additional CDs. The CD playe rwill stop while additional CDs are loaded.

Playing Discs
The radio will show the CD number, the CD track number, and the Track Time Elapsed while the radio is in the CD mode. IF more than one CD is loaded in the changer, the changer will automatically play the next disc after playing the last track of the current disc.

Wow, that's a lot of typing.
I didn't know the 2004 Dodge Neon had such a nice changer.
Good luck.

When a disc is loaded, it reads no disc, and disc cannot be played.


It is very possible that the lens motor has burnt out. Sometimes the capacitors on the motherborard short out causing the gear timing to go out..

The only thing you can do to fix this is to take the cover off. Get cotton swab and dip it rubbing alcohol and clean the glass laser eye with it.

Player won't load any discs


I don't have a solution at this time. I have the same DVD player and mine stopped working this past weekend. It is doing the same thing as yours. I opened the case and loaded a disc and watched the mechanism. The disc won't spin. if you tap the disc it will start spinning and load and start playing. I thought I had fully fixed it. It will load most times but now the video and audio stutters as if the discs is spinning at varying rates.

Your DVD player is having a problem reading the disc. This is what is accounting for the pausing and the slow loading times...especially if it plays other movies without hitches. Even if the DVD is cleaned, some scratching on the disc will prevent it from being viewed properly. Blockbuster shoudl give you another disc to try of the same movie if you ask. Also, you can try getting a cleaner for your DVD player to remove dust and help it read discs better.
