SOURCE: CD not playable

Hello

It sounds to me like the laser lens itself may be damaged or even broken.

Here is something you can try though, this might just work if the laser lens has some dust particles stuck to it. Just go to your nearest cd shop and buy yourself a laser lens cleaner disc, it is cheap.

Follow the instructions, and if the laser lens itself was dirty, this will help, otherwise the laser lens might be broken, which is a ver common problem, cause you used it for three years now.

Hope this can steer you in the right direction.

Kind regards
Andrea

SOURCE: DISC FORMATS??will not play some disc

There are some DVD players that will only allow the store bought discs to work on their system, probably due to copy right infridgements.

Why will my CD's not play on my Wave music system?


it might be you need to get a cleaning disc that cleans the laser inside the cd drive.
or it could be the laser it self has gone faulty.
try a cleaning disc first and see how you get on.

How I clean the lens?


There are special cleaning CDs with bristle hair attached.
You moist them with the special supplied liguid and put the cd in to play.As they spin they gently brush the lens and clean off any debris.
Otherwise you have to open the machine to do it manually with a microfibre cloth (GENTLY) and clear alcohol (JUST A DROP)...

When I try to play a CD I get an "err" message. Using store-bought CD's, not ones that have been copied. I have the Emerson PD6559BL portable CD player Love this CD player so I hope you...


Extract from your cd player manual:

"This CD player can play normal CDs p/us CD Recordable (CD-R)
and CD Rewriteable (CD-RW) discs. However the playability of CD-RIRW discs
may be affected by the type of software that was used in 'ripping' the tracks from
the original discs and 'burning' the tracks onto the blank media. Playability may
a/so be affected by the quality and condition of the blank media you use for
recording. 100% compatibility cannot be guaranteed, this is nof an indication of
any problems with your player."

So try to burn the disc with another software or buy different CD-r.
You also want to make sure that you Burned the tracks as audio files and not MP3 file, because your player can not read MP3s.

Hope this helps.

It will not play Dvd Error message says reject Dvd disc may not be playable type. One DVD began to play but kept jumping. Tried multple Dvd a Few fresh out of box


The device does not play.

Ensure that a supported disc is loaded in the player label-side up.

Ensure that the disc's region code matches the player's region code.

Ensure that the disc's rating level does not exceed the player's.

Ensure that the disc is not damaged or too dirty. Clean the disc or try another disc.

Moisture may have condensed inside the player. Remove the disc and leave the player on for
1-2 hours and then try again.

or lense may be dirty, try using a dvd 'head' cleaner. this may help situation, if continues, may be internal issue and need repair.

My recently made music CD will NOT play in our Philips FW-R7. It will play on all our computers and DVD players. The message is "Wrong Disc." Other music CD we've made do play fine in the FW-R7.


This is common with burned cd's they have trouble playing in different sets. Do prerecorder cd's play fine in your philips? If those are having trouble also you could improve it's playability possibly with a cleaning of the opu. Optical pick up.

My 14" dvd combi player wont read any disc i put in. The only thing that happens is that the main screen says reading disc then about 1 minute later is says please insert a playable disc. I have tried...


The optics can not read the disc. Try cleaning the lens inside using a cotton swab and alcohol. Also try playing a music CD. If the CD plays but a DVD continues to fail, the opticsl will need to be replaced. Depending upon the specific model, this could cost anywhere from $50-$120.
