What do I do for a unit that says "incompatible disk", even when there's no disk in it?

It has a very simple solution. Clean the head. (disk head) and you will be good to go Pam.
For this, purchase a DVD/CD head cleaning tool kit.
If it doesn't help let me know. If you don't know how to do it let us know. :)

When I turn my LG BD270 on, the disp;ay keeps scrolling "Hello" and the TV screen flashes an LG logo screen. What could the problem be?

Is your LG unit new, or have you had it some time? If the later, it could be capacitor failure, which can cause all kinds of issues. I had an LG DVD HDD recorder which had a similar problem, except the LG logo didn't flash on screen. Does your unit have a hard disk? The prblem with mine was that the machine would not boot. Eventually, even th date display went, and it would not start. Replacing a bank of capapcitors solved he problem. I didn't have the equipment, but a repair engineer did it for £25in less than an hour.

The disc drive isnt recognizing some discs, I recently bought a few blank CD-RWs and when i put them in it doesnt show up in the computer.

Some optical units will simply refuse to work with some model of disks - you happened to stumble on one of these incompatibilities. Nothing you can do about it, just buy a different brand of disks.

Walang image na lumalabas kapag nag capture ako sa digital camera ko,ang unit ay canon powershot a470

Ang isang mapagmataas panangga sa bintana ay isa pang karaniwang mode kabiguan para sa mga digital na kamera. Ang mga sintomas ng isang palalo o "malagkit" panangga sa bintana ay halos katulad sa kabiguan CCD imahen sensor. Ang kamera ay maaaring tumagal ng itim na mga larawan (para sa mga panangga sa bintana mapagmataas sarado), o ang mga larawan ay maaaring masyadong maliwanag at overexposed, lalo na kapag kinuha sa labas (para sa mga panangga sa bintana mapagmataas bukas).
Upang kumpirmahin ang isang mapagmataas panangga sa bintana, ilagay ang kamera sa anumang paraan maliban sa "Auto", at patayin ang flash OFF (hindi mo nais na bulag ang iyong sarili para sa susunod na hakbang). Susunod na tumingin pababa ang lens at kumuha ng larawan. Dapat mong makita ang isang maliit na maliit andap sa gitna ng lens bilang panangga sa bintana ang nagbukas at magsasara. Kung kilusan walang nakita, at pagkatapos mong malamang na magkaroon ng isang mapagmataas panangga sa bintana. Kung gayon, maaring tignan ang link na ito para sa karagdagang impormasyon at isang simpleng maayos na maaaring makatulong:

Ngayon A470 ay hindi kaya ng pagkuha ng 15 segundo exposures bilang inirerekomenda para sa ayusin. Sa halip na subukan ang mga setting ng kamera sa manual mode, patayin ang flash, got sa isang darkened room, at kumuha ng larawan. Buksan ang pinto baterya habang ang pula at dilaw na liwanag ay flashing. Kung pagkatapos ng maraming sumusubok na ito ay hindi gumagana, at pagkatapos isaalang-alang ang pagsubok Ayusin # 5a sa site. Subalit gawin ito sa kamera ang pinatay at ang lens retracted upang bawasan ang pagkakataon ng damaging ang lens na mekanismo.

Sharp BD-HP20U Had been working fine, until today tried number of disk both blu-ray and dvd in and during disk reading process an error msg comes up incompatible disk

I have the same problem. I started several months ago with brand new blueray disks. Now even disks that worked before, now come up as incompatible disks. I have tried contacting support thru their website and never getting a response. Not even the automated response about how blueray is always changing. No firmware upgrades since 10-29-08. I will never purchase any sharp products again. And I would advise anyone considering it, dont. What a waste of money.
