Re: Won't play dvd's that I have burned even if decrypted...


Most players of this type have 2 laser eyes, 1 for CD and another for DVD. Based on your description, I would venture a guess that the DVD laser eye is at fault. If the unit was playing DVD before and the problem just occurred recently, then perhaps, cleaning with the use of a CD cleaner (similar to the ones used for computer CD ROMs) would correct the fault.

Should this not be the case, you may need to seek the services of a qualified audio technician who can either perform a manual cleaning (involves opening the unit) or diagnosis and repair if required. I am hesitant to suggest that you venture a do-it-yourself as this require working with a live/powered unit when performing tests and diagnosis.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

I load a CD and it reads "no disk' and it wont play.

good evening and welcome to fixya

i think i can help you out, i had the same problem with a playstation and a dvd player. buy some of that aerosol spray for electronics and spray it out really well and insert a disc and see if it does not help. it did me, i had to spray then disc would work, i repeated this step for the next few times before i played anything in the machine and now it is fine. give it a try if you haven't already, let me know and if this dont work then chances are the eye or the track for the dvd player are no longer in time. it also could be the type of cd you are trying to play also, this only applies if you are trying to use a burned cd, if not burned properly then the player may not accept the way you burned it. here are a few ideas for you let me know what the outcome is. thank you

please rate this solution?

Dvd will not play in dvd player but will play in computer

I don't know if I really find the solution but several burned discs I decide to burn a poor disc 8x instead my emtec 16x and voil'a the disc go on my SC-HT70. I suppose it doesn't support new type of discs with higher velocities even burned at a lower velocity (4x). If any one have another solution please let me know.
Also I know we can upgrade firmware of Panasonic but it can only be done by a technician and it's very expensive.

DVD won't play

I am assuming it is not a burned dvd but a retail one, have you tried to play a cd? If it does not read anything it could be a bad unit.
