Drive not reading discs


Is it not reading all discs, or just DVDs? Try a CD. I'm not sure about X Box, but any normal DVD should play a CD. Please reply back.

Wont read bluray disks


If there is no reading of the disc then there is no laser scanning and the possibility that the laser head can be defective.
Try to clean the laser head unit.
If other DVD are working except bluray discs then
above seems otherwise we must recheck with possibilities of a malfunction of the main processor board

Cd rom drive reads some cd's and not others


If those other discs are working in other cdrom drives then you could have a dirty cdrom drive, a laser failure, or it could be a firmware problem in that drive. Check the mfr's website for any firmware updates first. If that should fail, then you will need to replace the drive.

What's happening inside is, you have a laser inside that bounces a beam off the disc and receives the beam into a buffer. The beam scans for and detects "Pits" and "plateaus" on the surface of the disc (it's kinda like morse code on a plastic disc.) and the dots and dashes reflect into the buffer.

If you cannot read a disc, that means the laser is having trouble with either:
1. emitting the beam,
2. targeting the tracks where the pits and plateaus are or
3. receiving the beam into its buffer

SOMETIMES a burned disc is harder to read by a standard reader, but not often. Most times it is a sign of dirt on the buffer receiver, dirt on the lens, or inability to scan the tracks. Try using a cdrom lens cleaner, and update the drive firmware. if that doesnt help you, you need a new drive.

My old compaq presario wont read my scan disc


Can you use that port to read any other device?What operating system are you using?Did it work previously?Windows 98 you will have to install drivers.Chances are that old computer has a usb 1.0 so it might not work.However try another device in that port or any usb port on the computer to see if any ports are working.Does your scan disk work on another computer.Have you done a windows update recently.Make sure you try all the above.
Good luck

Problem with lappy reading music discs and programs


Most DVD drives have two lenses - one for CD's and another to read DVD's. It could be that the CD lens on your drive is failing. Try using a CD lens cleaner (available in most electronic shops). If that doesnt work, then the lens is scratched and will have to be replaced.
If that is the case, then I suggest buying a new DVD drive, as it would be cheaper than attempting a repair.

Panasonic DMR-E55 DVD Recorder won't read most dvd-r brands


Hello jancinn,

This might be due to a dirty pickup or scan laser head, or the optics as a whole might be going bad (both are common problems). A qualified TV repair person should be able to determine if the scan laser or pickup head are bad by doing a laser power test. If the optical devices are dirty it is just a simple matter of cleaning them with a DVD cleaning disk, however if the optics are bad, then replacing them is actually cost inefficient, and you may want to think about getting a new DVD player/recorder.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Cant read disc


Try checking the scan and pickup heads of the DVD with a DVD cleaning disk . If this does not help the optics or the decoder/encoder might be defective. In that case, you will need a qualified TV repair person to work on these units for you all.

I hope this helps

Thank you,

Various LG DVD Player


Some models of PIONEER cd players had radio frequency problems that caused them to work on and off. Are you near any radio or braodcast towers? Poorly shielded power supplies cause this as well. A weak laser diode in the pick-up assembly in model runs could be the problem. You might want to Google the model number and see if this is common for these units.
