Question about JVC TH-A10 System

1 Answer

Will not play any DVD or CD

I opened up the unit, thinking that there would be a huge ball of dust over the laser or something,  but everything looked rather clean.  When I insert a CD or DVD, it starts to spin, and then ejects the disk.  I could see the laser (red light) being emitted, so it looks like that is working as well.

I tried using a lens cleaner, but the little brushes are at the edge of the disk, and I noticed that the head really only travels from the inner centre to about half the radius.  i.e.  it never reaches the outer edge...

Any idea as to what may be happening?

BTW   Before it stopped completely running any disks, it started being selective about which disks it would play.

Thanks!

My Philips HTS3541/f7 5.1 will not read blu rays or dvds how can this be corrected?


I think if you try a CD disc, you will find that disc will play. The Optical Pickup(laser) has worn out of specification. There are actually 3 lasers in the unit; a CD, DVD and Blu Ray lasers. They are all use different wavelengths of light, so one laser cannot cover all 3 wavelengths. Unfortunately, you will need a new pickup. Again, try the CD. I'm 90% sure it will play fine, unless the pickup is covered in dust(like my house :-(. If you would like more information, or would like to inquire about having your Philips repaired, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

Technika combi unit dvd player wont read discs anymore


Hello,

how long have you been using this player? I suspect the laser (lens) of the player. I think the laser (lens) is weak that's why it cannot read data/files on DVD discs.

To confirm if actually its a laser problem, insert an Audio CD into the player and see if will play. If it plays, then obviously, your laser (lens) is weak. But if it doesn't play Audio CD, then it might still be the laser (lens) or a mechanism problem.

Get a lens cleaner, use it to clean the lens. If that doesn't solve the problem, get a screw driver, open the player's cover so that you can gain access to the lens, use a cotton board to clean the surface of the lens. This should clean dust or dirt that might be on the lens.

If non of the above solves the problem, then know that you need to replace the laser to a brand new one.

To replace the lens, remove the bad laser, use it as a sample to get exactly the same type and do the replacement. Note that replacing a laser (lens) needs a professional touch, so if you cannot replace the laser, get it to a repairman to fix it for you.

Once this us done, your player will play all DVD discs again.

Regards.

My cd rom does not read dvds


you might as well check your Toshiba PC Laptop if your CD-ROM can read DVD's .. Look at this figure... ryanpajaro20_6.jpg

There will be a hint for you to check the Optical drive if it has the DVD label. Otherwise , consult Toshiba for it...

Panasonic DMR-EZ48V Dvd unit said disc was scratched/dusty - so would not record. Tried a newly opened DVD disc - same problem. Tried a pre-recorded DVD that had previously been played on this machine...


I would suggest since this is just out of warranty/guarantee as you say, try a DVD laser lens cleaner (these look like DVDs but they are for shifting surface dust off the laser lens in these drives (without the need for you to worry about opening them up). If the recorder suggests dirty discs, the laser probably has a speck of dust on it - you cannot see this speck, but the device can.

Do not use CD/DVD lens cleaner discs - those are supermarket products designed for CD/DVD players, not recorders or DVD-ROM drives in a PC. I recommend a true DVD lens cleaner kit - you may be able to obtain this through Panasonic or similar electrical outlets (like where you originally purchased the combo). These 'specific cleaners' are cheap, but unlike CD/DVD cleaners, these will not damage your unit.

Hopefully it is nothing more than a bit of stubborn dirt stuck on the lens inside the drive or anything more serious.

I have a philips hts6510 home theatre system and when i put a dvd in to play it says no disc


hi,
Normally a dvd player shows the message NO DISC when,
1. The disc inserted is bad.
2 The lase pickup unit inside the dvd lost its reading intensity, dirty lens or the spindle motor damaged .

In your case the second one happened. the intensity of the laser pickup unit has lost or the spindle motor faulty or there is some dust on its lens. just insert a cleaning cd in it for two or three times. then check again is the DVD is reading or not

if the problem remains then you have to check the motor and the laser pickup unit. the lase pickup unit have two laser emitter and receiver in its inside . one for reading and playing DVDs and the other for CD and MP3. also the spindle motor runs in different speed when u insert dvd and cd.

Open the cover of your dvd player and power it on insert an audio cd and watch is it reading or not also notice the speed of the spindling of the cd. if the audio cd reads and play. then the possible problem is the spindle motor

To conform it remove the audio cd and insert a dvd. watch the rotation of the dvd. if it feel very hard to rotate it then, the spindle motor is damaged. if so replace the spindle motor if it runs more the the speed of than audio cd then the laser pickup unit is faulty. Then u have to replace the laser pickup unit.
if you need any further assistance from me , feel free to contact me through fixya.
ok

A friend gave us a dvd of a wedding. We played it on our player but ever since then the player won't play anything. It just clicks for several seconds and then an error displays on the tv that it can't...


Get a lens cleaning kit. Most likely some dust got on to the laser lens.

A non compatible CD or DVD disk cannot damage a CD player. There is no actual physical contact between the disk surface and the laser unit.

By coincidence, the player may have failed.

Problems with playing discs


There are several causes for this problem.

1) Faulty DVD drive. Most drives have a dual laser, one for CD, and one for DVD. Check the player with both CD, and DVD. If it reads one and not the other, then it is most certainly a faulty laser. The laser assembly or whole mechanism will need changing.

2) Dirty or dusty lens. If the unit is kept in a dust environment, dust and dirt can be drawn into the machine by the fan. Try using a DVD lens cleaner. If this doesn't work try a CD lens cleaner. (Dual laser - see 1))

3) Condensation. Condensation can build up on the laser lens if the unit is kept in a humid environment. Also, this can be caused by a cold environment. In this case, condensation forms as the unit warms up. In either case, leave the unit in a warm dry environment for an hour.

DVD skips or freezes when playing and not related to a scratched or dirty DVD


I think that this is the laser unit as I have three of these units and I have swapped everything but the laser unit.
