Sometimes the brushless motor driver circuit fails. Rarely does the motor itself go bad. On some models, if the the laser diode is too weak to read the disc, the player will not bother to spin it. It won't spin so a lens cleaner disc won't work You can try to take it apart and clean the tiny lens. Don't use alcohol. Windex and a Q-tip works great to remove grease and dirt. Don't buff it hard. Just wipe lightly a few times and look at it at an angle to make sure it is shiny, not hazy. Almost all of these are not an economically viable repair. If cleaning the lens does not help, you are looking at another portable player.
Ok, disc error happens for 2 reasons....1. If this is self made dvd, it wasn't finalized, or, as was already said the lens is dirty. If you feel up to it, unplug it, and remove the top....if you can get to the lens, simply apply rubbing alcohol with a q tip. Hopefully, it fixes the problem.
Hi, Your no disc error can be a DIY like the following
steps. Assuming that the disc is good. 1.Clean the lens.-
Sometimes because of dust the lens can't read any disc. Try clean the lens by
soft cotton buds. Be careful while doing this. 2.Replace the ribbon- Check
the ribbon connected to the lens from the main board forscratch,
damage. Once it has an open line then of course the lens can't read the
disc. Also try to erase the contact by pencil eraser. If you've done the steps
above and the symptoms still there then the next step requires you a little
knowledge in soldering technique and reading the ohmmeter. 3.Check the motor- Check
the motor that spin the disc with an ohmmeter. You can test it using the
ohmmeter (x1) even it is connected on the lens assembly.Good
motor- reading should be fairly high and it will spin.Bad
motor- reading will drop to low resistance and will not spin. Hint :50% of my
repaired unit the above parts are commonly caused of the problem. If you confirmed that you have a defective motor
then replace it with a new one. Before replacing the new motor you have to
check the clearance of the disc holder with the old one. The clearance should
be the same as the old because if not the lens will not read the disc if it is
too far or too close. You may replaced also the entire lens assembly for your convenient. You can buy it in your local electronics supply, bring the sample as much as possible. Hope it may help you. Have a nice day!
It may be a dirty lens, or perhaps the drive is getting stuck.
The first thing to try, if you feel up to it, is to clean the lens. First, you'll need rubbing alcohol (peroxide isn't the same thing) and a Q-tip. Add a tiny amount of alcohol to the Q-tip and gently rub it against the lens of the laser. After a few times around the lens, use the dry end of the Q-tip to pick up any excess alcohol lying around. Put the player back together and try playing a disc.
If it still doesn't fix the issue, then the following steps can be taken.
Have a disc in the drive and while it's off, open it up. Start the drive and see if it's spinning freely. If not, then onto the next part.
Use some WD40 on the shaft of the drive motor that makes the disc spin. Just use a little bit at a time and work it in by manually spinning the spindle (what the disc rests on). Once that's finished, put the disc back in and reassemble the drive, plug it in, turn it on, and see if it spins better.
Check the disc you're using for scratches and dirt. If the disc is damaged it won’t play properly, regardless of the DVD player’s ability to function. You can use a DVD repair device like the "Disc Doctor" to repair the DVD or purchase a new DVD.
Make sure the discs you're using fit the correct format specified by your DVD player. For example, if your DVD player doesn’t support home-burned DVD-R's, then you can’t use a DVD that you made at home. You may need to upgrade to a newer model, most of which accept the latest DVD formats.
Clean the laser lens with a DVD laser lens cleaning disc. DVD laser lens cleaning discs can be purchased at most electronics retailers or online. Insert the laser lens cleaning disc and follow the instructions.
Insert a correctly-formatted, undamaged disc into your player. Listen to see if it begins to read the disc. If it continues to make no sound and gives you the same message, then the problem is probably that your disc is not spinning in the device.
Turn the device off and unplug it. Take off the outer casing by removing the three or four screws and lifting the top piece off. This will allow you to see if anything is simply stuck or jammed. If this is the case, a simple nudge back to the correct position will fix the problem.
Clean the lens while the DVD player is open. A dirty lens is most likely the cause of your no-disc error. The lens should be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol and a cotton swab.
Take your DVD player to have it professionally fixed only when none of these other solutions solves the problem. A professional repair technician will be able to tell you if fixing your DVD player is worth the money.
I've had the "can't read disc problem" and "noise" when the
disc is turning. It's not the lens. The rubber pad/ring that the
CD/DVD sits on gets "dirty" and doesn't grab the disc well enough
and the disc slips. It's especially a problem when recording, because
it can ruin the discs, and make then unusable.
I took mine apart and cleaned the rubber ring and that solves the problem.
(for a while anyway) I think the rubber pad has hardened and lost it's grip,
so I have to clean it more and more often now.
1) Unplug it (I take all the cables off)
2) Take the top cover off (5 philips head screws) Don't touch any of the electronics.
3) Remove the blk plastic DVD reader cover CAREFULLY (6 philips head screws)
Don't move any of the parts on the cover or it's really hard to put back together.
4) Gently wipe off the rubber ring with a damp lint free cloth
5) Put the blk cover back on, plug it in, and test it with a disc take make it sure works.
6) Put the metal cover on and you're done.
I used to work as an electrical engineer so I feel comfortable taking this kind of stuff
apart. If you don't, you can buy a new one or have someone else clean it.
