If you're in warranty, you can exchange the player through Memorex. If you're out of warranty, you'll want to buy a new player. It isn't feasible to have a player like this repaired because repair cost will be far more than what the player actually cost,

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Disk won't play - says ''disk not found'' . multiple disks won't play in this player but they play in another player


After you explained the situation theres really only one conclusion. Which is that the laser inside the dvd player will be the source of the problem.

There is really only one way to try and correct this problem. Any store that sells DVD's and DVD players typically sell a lens cleaning disc. If you can get one of those you can try cleaning the lense.

If that does not solve the problem then it has become defective or malfunctioned. You could track down a local dvd repair shop but the cost of having it fixed would likely be as high as just buying a new one.

Post back if you have any further questions or comments. Thank you for choosing Fixya!

When i put a dvd in the player makes noise and screen says no disk or unable to read

Sounds like the mounting spindle is out of alignment, meaning the disks you load into the player are not spinning in a balanced, stable position. Without this being the case the laser pickup will not be able to read the disk and the unbalanced disk will cause a noisy hum and you may even be able to feel vibration in the player itself to confirm this. Sometimes the noise and vibration is a disks fault but if it occurs on any disk you insert (and can confirm the same disks work ok with no noise in other DVD players) it will be the players mounting mechanisim that is not playing the game properly I suspect.

My Xbox 360 makes a loud humming noise while i play

The Xbox 360 does not like to be moved when playing a disk some of the mechanics may have misaligned or slightly out of sync this may be reason the DVD drive is making those sounds.

I strongly recommend you remove any visible dust from the 360 especially the sides and air vent holes using a vacuum cleaner. Once youve cleaned it place it horizontal (never on carpet) on a flat surface well ventilated away from other devices that generate a lot of heat.

As for the 'shredding sound', place in **** game into the 360 when it starts to make those sounds again gently tap the 360 on top (where the DVD drive is) until it stops making that sound. This doesnt always work but has for me and many others.

My experience tells me that dust can build up not only inside the 360 but also the drive itself which can lead disc read errors and the sounds and you mentioned.

Remember DUST and HEAT is the 360's biggest enemy and can cause RROD, 1 Red Light Problem, and disk errors.

Hope this helps..good luck!

My dvd won't play any movies

the ticking sound is most likely the laser hitting the disk trying to focus, my guess is the motor isnt spinning the disc or the laser is bad or weak.
