Does not read Cds or DVDs


most sony CD and DVD players have a digital signature design to play CDs and DVDs that are original and licensed. some CDs or DVDs dont work since the player does not recognize or scan any digital signature embedded in the CD or a DVD. 2nd, lens problem causes most players not to read CDs nor DVDs. you can try to buy CD or DVD lens cleaners to have your lens cleaned.

Keep getting a no disk error. how do i fix this? is the lens dirty? these are all new dvd's


This can be as simple as a dirty lens as you suspect or a defective optics assembly. Remove the cover and clean the lens with a cotton swab and alcohol. If that fails to allow the unit ti play DVDs, try a CD. If the CD will play, then the unit is likely to require new optics. CDs require less laser power to read then DVDs.

Will only play cd not dvds. lens turns red . plays dvd then stops by itself but no problem with cds


HELLO
This sounds very much like a laser problem. ALL DVD players have a dual laser (one for CD other for DVD). It is very likely that the DVD laser has gone defective that is why you can only play CD's.
Another thing you can try is to clean the laser lens using isopropyl alcohol and a cotton bud - laser may be dirty/dusty as this can cause problems too.
If after cleaning the lens you can still only play CD's, then the laser will be defective. This will be an expensive repair job therefore it's cheaper to buy another unit.
ALL THE BEST (:-)

Sony CX995v "Cannot Play" message on DVDs but plays CDs O.K.


Hi...
The laser goes thru a different lens arraignment for DVDs.
Take it to a TV shop and have them "blow out" the laser assembly with some CO2 and clean the lens.

Trutech 17 inch tv dvd player the dvd spins seems not fast enough


The first step is to clean the lens of the optics assembly (if you can get to it) carefully using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that does not resolve the problem, try playing a music CD. If the music CD plays but a DVD does not, it suggests that the laser is starting to fail and needs to be replaced. CDs require far less laser power to read than DVDs.

Hope this helps,
Dan

I have a portable dvd player model number mdp1030 the unit keeps saying no disk I have tried numerous disks same results.


then i think the lens is not able to read the disk.

and so i would suggest you to buy a disk cleaner CD and run it in your DVD player and then use your regular disks.

if this is not working then it is some internal fault in your DVD players lens.

DVD Player structs after playing 10 minutes of video


the heat from the infra red laser heats up the disk to the point it is hot to touch at which point the read lens cannot read the laser reflection thru the heat noise. cool it down, keep a small fan blowing thru it or play shorter movies.

Portable dvd player will play music cds but not video dvds


Chances are, your DVD player uses one laser to read CDs, and a different laser to read DVDs (since Cds and DVDs are read at different wavelenghts of light). If the DVDs you're trying to watch work properly in other DVD players, it probably means that the DVD laser is dirty, damaged, or burned out. Though you can try cleaning the laser (use Google for suggestions on how to do this, or check the Audiovox website), you will most likely have to get the DVD player repaired, or buy a replacement. Many of the newer CD/DVD players sold today use a single combination laser, which reads both CDs and DVDs, which means that when the laser fails, it will not work at all. Wish I had better news for you, but I guess that the only consolation you have is that your Audivox player still works with CDs...
