Re: check disc

Is the surface or your disk smudged or damaged? If not, try a lens cleaner CD or kit and see if the problem goes away. If they are DVD Rs or something similar(DVD-RAM, DVD+R, ETC) the player may not be able to play that particular format, and you should double check the instruction manual to see what types of disks can be read.

Trying to record on a DVD-R , after several minutes trying to load i get a msg saying it can neither read nor play this disc , check disc,,please help

I've had this problem with trying to record on CD-Rs also. DVD and CD recorders can be very fussy. You just have to get a piece of dust or a fingerprint on the CD or DVD that's being recorded onto and it gets kicked back as a check disc or blank disc..

Another problem is some recorders will only accept certain brands. I've had problems recording onto a SONY CD-R with a SONY recorder! So, in summing up, try a different brand or make sure the disc is clean. Sometimes just taking the disc out and putting it back in in a different position will make the recorder think it's an OK disc. Hope this helps.

Sony BDP-BX2 Blu Ray player won't read disc. Do i need to update the firm ware? or something?

The latest update version is .008. Yes, you most likely need to do this. I have done two update so far. Ver. .006 and .008. Both times this solved my disc problem. On one of my disc for the newest version, I put the disc in and it could not read it. I was really surprise and put in back in again and it played. I've come to the conclusion that many disc pressing are not very good and some of the Blu-ray players are more finicky about reading that bad pressing. Exchanging the disc for another sometimes works.

When a disc is loaded, it reads no disc, and disc cannot be played.

It is very possible that the lens motor has burnt out. Sometimes the capacitors on the motherborard short out causing the gear timing to go out..

The only thing you can do to fix this is to take the cover off. Get cotton swab and dip it rubbing alcohol and clean the glass laser eye with it.

Wont play

There is no simple "at home" solution to any of these problems listed. However, Since it tries to play or at-least plays Cd's, then that will indicate that affordable repair is possible. I have already repaired several of the Dual units already. With the 7" Dual screen sets, I had to replace the laser assembly or the spinner motor (not spinning fast enough). With the 8" Dual Screen sets, I found mostly that the laser ribbon was binding up in the movement of the laser and preventing it to move to proper position. These repairs should be done by a qualified technician.

Hi, sometimes if the disc is not completely flat in the tray, I get the same problem. Pretty low tech, but sometimes works!

Not reading pre-recorded dvd's and ocassionally not re-wrtten dvds

Over recent months my recorder has stopped reading pre-recorded disc's and more requently re-writer disc's. I had thought that the region had some how been altered, but not too sure now. Is there a way of checking? Or is there a problem with the laser block. I have stripped the machine down and thoroughly cleaned (but no dust found) and no loose parts. I have reset to manufacture default but this hasn't helped.

DVD-RW discs I have recorded sometimes say 'disc error' sometimes 'no disc' sometimes start ok but cycles round and round for 5 - 10 mins before stopping, sometimes goes straight into play at last position, won't stop back in menu just goes straight to stndby. Factory reset dosn't help. Wont play pre-recorded discs without going into menu and messing around. It seems to damage or not record RW discs properly a lot of the time. Not even sure if it's resetting to factory settings properly.
