SOURCE: will not play dvd s

I guess, this happens with every CD/DVD player - and the root reason is fine grain sticky dust on the lens + backlash of laser driver motor.

Please take this as a general guideline:
If possible, open the DVD player - not all DVD players are designed to have quick access to lens - however you can try.

Get a micro-fibre lens cleaning cloth - do not use any fluid - be very very gentle, while wiping the lens - and I am quite sure you will see dirts in the microfibre cloth.

I did so for 2 of my DVD players, one was bit expensive one from ONKYO - even with visual inspection, the lens looks shining and no dirt, when I rubbed [very gentle rubbing] with micro-fibre cloth [I got from Pro Camera/Photography shop - as lens cleaner] - I got good results.

SOURCE: i put a dvd in

Hi, what makes the DVD not to be able to read the inserted DVD's is because the lens of the player is too weak to spin the dvd plate to play.

You will need to use a DVD Lens cleaner to clean up the lens inside the player to clean up dirt disturbing it from not playing any DVD cd.

If after cleaning the Lens and still does not play,you will need to replace the Lens..

Have a nice day..

SOURCE: can't read blu ray disc, he could read before

If the firmware update is done then you may have a problem in the laser lens, it is either dirty or the laser is defective or the laser reader chip is defective. Due to the fact that Blu Ray players are now dirt cheap compared to just 2 years ago the cost to repair would exceed the cost to replace with a new player. Try cleaning the laser lens with a cleaning kit, they are available all over and very cheap. Could you please rate my help for Fixya. Thanks

My harman kardon player will read blurays, however it wont read dvds. Any idea why?


More than likely the lens that read dvd discs has failed. On blu-ray players, there are two (2) optical lens. One reads blu-rays and the other dvd/cds. They are independent of one another.

Cannot read DVD but can CD?


Could be just a dirty lens. Try :-

1) Blowing some compressed air through it. You can get cans, may already have one.

2) Running a CD lens cleaner. Its practically the same mechanics.

After that, its taking it out and cleaning it.

Ps3 wont play games, dvds, or blurays. The disc doesn't spin??


This may be a case of replacing the laser lens. If your console is out of warranty, take it to your local Game Stop, or somewhere that does Sony repair. PSR does Sony authorized repair, but it usually involves shipping. You can contact PSR at 877-777-3491, or email at psr_repairs@msn.com. Hope this was helpful

DVDs won't play


Hi Pookie, This is an easy fix. All you need to get is a CD/DVD-Player Laser-Lens Cleaner for about $5.00. You can get these at Best Buy, Circuit City, Radio Shack, or any similar place. Use this, and let me know how it works for you. Best regards, nightdiver
