"Disc Error" means your DVD player is not able to read the disc due to some reason. The reason may be an old and scratchy disc or a dirty lense. I am sure you must have tried another good clean disc also. Open the top if you can. Eject the tray and try to see the lense. If you can reach it, clean it very gently with a clean cloth so that any dust particle if deposited there is removed. If some kind of smoky deposit is there on the lense clean it gently with a moist ear bud. I hope your this will solve your problem. If it does not work, please show the player to some technician.
Hi, the only real thing you can try yourself is a cd lense cleaning kit, you can buy these from most computer hardware stores and some discount shops, this may solve your problem as it will clean the laser lense and should get it working again.
if how ever after doing the above it still dont work then this points to the fact that the laser is on its way out and if this is the case then the chances are it would be cheaper to buy a new player.
let me know if you need further assistance ok
plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated answers, thanks
Hi the chances are the problem you are having is going to be with the laser lense, you will probably find that it is covered in dust and is not reading the disks properly, so if you go into a computer repair or hardware shop you can buy a cd lense cleaning kit you then put the cleaning disk into your dvd player and it will then remove any dust build up and should get it working properly.
If after doing this your still having problems then the chances are the laser is on its way out and may need replacing, the problem with this is that the cost of repair could cost more than buying a new dvd player, so for now i would try the lense cleaning kit and see if that solves your problem. 9 out of 10 of the times it solves the problem so it is worth trying the cleaning first.
Also make sure you dvd's are clean and free from scratches you can run them under a cold tap to clean them and then dry them using kitchen roll just dont press to hard when drying.
Hi the message you are getting is telling you that either the laser lense is dirty so buying a cd lense cleaning kit would clean the lense for you or it could mean the laser has packed up and would need replacing.
Make sure the dvd your putting in is not scratched, try blowing into the dvd slot to remove any dust, failing that you need to buy a lense cleaning cd you can get these from most computer stores then run this in your dvd player then give it a try it may solve the problem. If it dont then the problem is going to be with the laser itself and then you would need to work out wether the cost of repair was worth doing compared to replacing the dvd player.
let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
Nope. The laser mechanism seems to have developed a preference of its won and refuses to work with DVD media.
You have already done a firmware update so that is ng. Could be that when you updated it to play newer blue rays, the update messed up unit for dvd playback. Happens.
But do not sweat - that unit has a one year warranty - use it.
I had a RH 178 with the same problem. I opened case and removed the plate with the 2 drive cables and the front lcd cable. Simply wait a few mins and plug it back in, connect the 3 cables and use the 4 srews and VOILA it runs!!
No more "please Wait"
I think it was a connection problem with the "uplink" to mainboard (not the three drive cables and LCD). Can someone please report if it works with his LG?
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.
