Keeps telling me bad disk...the dvd works in another machine. What does this error mean?


Some players are better then others, try a different disc, if it plays then, player is fine, it's just not got a good enough laser eye to read the disc you want to play or laser eye is dirty. You might try cleaning laser ,player to see if that's problem. If it won't play other disks even after cleaning then it's time to replace player. Not sure what type disk your trying, dvd or blu ray, but I've noticed that dvd's play better in blu ray players, they have better laser eye for reading disc.

My dvd won't play. every dvd i put in, it says bad disc. the vcr works fine. is it time for a new system. i tried a head cleaner and it says bad disc


Hello,
Not necessarily time for a new one. I would give the DVD player a good cleaning before you consider a new unit. A good cleaning disk with some little bristles on it. Run it through three full times. DVD players are far more sensitive than VCRs and have to be cleaned even two weeks or so. When they get real dirty it can take some fooling with to get the DVD player to even accept the cleaning disk. But if it just won't accept the cleaning disk and you can't watch a DVD in it then it's time for a new one. I had a DVD player one time that took an hour of fooling around with before it got cleaned good enough to play DVDs. Worked for a couple years afterward.
Regards, Tony

The dvd player says BAD DISK, but will play CDs


It's possible that the player needs cleaned or the disk has a scratch in it which will not allow it to play. I'd try a good dvd cleaner first. Hope this helps.

Dvd player won't work, says no disk


Greetings,

I do not have good news for either of you. These are notorious for having cheap lasers in them and their original purchase price usually makes a repair cost prohibitive. If you are having an intermittent problem where the disc will freeze - then play - then freeze - then play this is often the first indicator that the laser is failing. One easy way to confirm this is to play a compact disc in the player. CDs are easier for the player to read than DVDs are. If it plays CD and you continue to experience problems with DVDs this usually indicates a laser failing. Remember, when buying a consumer electronic product, the price of a thing usually reflects the quality of that thing.

As for cleaning discs; if a laser has enough residue built up on it to prevent the error correction system from overcoming it, then the microfine brushes on a cleaning disc will probably be ineffective at removing that build up. Cleaning discs are akin to the old VCR cleaning tapes, usually ineffective.

Sorry for the bad news,
Rob
