Sounds like the lazer/ lens damage. Try looking at the lens with a magnifiying glass, to see if you can see a chip/scratch.
The Sony UK website has a list of part supply places.

My RCA RTD317 has problems recognizing most DVD movie disks. It will play some disks most of the time and all audio disks, so I figure the lasers are working. What could be the problem?


If you've tried cleaning the Laser with a Lens Cleaner Disk or directly with Lens Cleaner Fluid and a QTip without any improvement then the Laser is Failing.

It takes less power to read some DVDs than others and a lot less power to read an Audio CD. The Laser will continue to deteriorate until it won't play anything.

My Toshiba SD-2715 dvd player periodically stops playing and turns off. This usually occurs after 1 hour of play. This has happened with multiple disks, and I have tried cleaning them with no improvement....


Try cleaning the lens, also the inside of the player in and around the disk tray is probably full of dirt, dust etc, carefully try cleanig all that out, you may need to disassemble a bit to get at everything

VCR will play, DVD returns disk with"check disk"-will not accept


Dirty or defective laser lens. try manual cleaning of the lens if you know how to open the unit top cover. manually clean the lens using cotton swab gently rubbing it in circular motion. blowing of air to remove dust will not really help clean the lens.

I have had this on a number of other players. First try the disks in question on another DVD player after giving them a thorough clean. If they work there then you know the problem is not with the disks.

After that (assuming the RH299 is actually working in every other respect e.g. on HDD), run a laser cleaning DVD/CD in the machine to clean the laser lens. If your machine is out of warranty then you can try opening it and cleaning the laser lens with rectified spirits/pure alcohol. Then try the disks again. If they still don't play, then it's off to a local electronics expert to see if realigning or replacing the laser and transport mechanism is economically viable, or buy a new machine.

Bad disc, lens cleaner doesn't work


Even tho it came up as a bad disk the brushes would have cleaned your lens as it tried to play the disc. If theres no improvement after using the cleaner you may need to take the unit to an engineer. Is it reporting every disk as bad or just a few??

Samsung DVD-4600 DVD/VCR Player


My Smasung DVD/VCR Combo stopped reading DVDs because of a dirty read head. It started by only playing disks sometimes, and progressed to never playing disks. I assumed it was a dirty laser lens so I bought a lens cleaner set. Unfortunately my player wouldn't play the cleaner disk.

So I took it apart and cleaned the laser lens manually with some isopropyl alcohol (the clenser that came with my cleaning disk), and a lens cloth (that came with my glasses). Just open the case (starting with the screws in the back) and remove the snap in cross panel that obscures the lens of the DVD portion. Put a drop of cleanser on the lens and gently wipe it with the cloth.

Oh and by the way, I take no responsibility if you break your own player while following my instructions. My own DVD player was far out of warranty at the time I cracked it open.
