Is your player a cd player or a dvd player? Because a cd player will not show movies but a dvd player will play music And show movies. I hope this helps.

Try the DVD in another player, if it works fine, the problem is with your player, not the disc.

    Yea I know it's with the player, I'm trying to figure out if there's anything I can do to fix it

    I have three that do the samw thing and I'm still trying to fix them, with no luck. Only other option is to take it in for service, unfortunately many times repair is more then a new one, so make sure you get a written quote first!

When i insert a CD, it won't accept it, "disc error" appears. What is the solutions.


hello there soenensistva
Well first of all Compact discs are easy to be read by a DVD player then ordinary Cd player cause of their lens are made for more compressed Data discs..there for try some of the options

1. make sure that the disc Surface is Clean and don't have finger prints or any other material that is disturbing the the read process between the CD and lens present inside CD player

2.if your CD is precious for you ( that consist some important Data you may need ) then try a DVD player for that

3.if both things doesn't work try a cleaning Cd for Cleaning the Head of CD player .

i wish that your problem may be solved
Best Regards

Disc shows loading then error on all dvd disc


Put a cd in the dvd player if it is marked that it plays cds... if it plays the cd your dvd laser is shot... cheaper to get a new unit. if it doesn't play a cd try cleaning the laser. and last but not the last thing try unplugging it for a short time then plug it back in... if nothing works get the one tool that fixs most everything...... take it to office depot and they can recycle the stuff inside and help keep the earth green...then onto wally world.

you can get the cleaning disc at any electronic store or even at some other stores like drug stores and even at the dollar store , but if the laser lens is probably to dirty to even see that disc if your player will not even read a music disc, have you tried a music disc? can it read it ? if so the cleaning disc will work.
if not then taking the player apart and manually cleaning the lens will be required

When trying to play DVDs the words unknown disc title appears. Even after several attempts with various DVDs we havent had any success.


have u tried cleaning the hea of ur dvd player?after using a dvd player or cd player for long times of continous play say 6 months or if u play too many scratched discs and u dont clean the head of the player it starts skipping the disc or many a times dosnt recognise the disc so it'll give u errors like "Unknown Disc", "Disk Error" etc so i would really recommend u to clean its head using a dvd head cleaner cd.. its easily available in the video stores or malls.. u can purchase any dvd head cleaner cuz there are number of manufatcures for this. im sure this would solve ur issue.

DVD player error


Try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Next try playing a CD. If the D plays but a DVD does not, the optics are weak and need to be replaced.
Keep us posted.
