Will not play

Load a disk and returns no disk

    It worked just fine and then it decided to not work at all. Insert disc and it says loading for quite some time and then says no disk. Local electronic repairman says the laser reader is bad. If you turn it on with disk inserted and hold down the switch that makes it think the lid is closed you can see the laser through the disk trying to find something. Focusing and traveling along its path you would think it was not the laser reader but I have no knowledge or understanding of these things. Was told that a new reader would cost much. Do not understand why, it is the same as in machines that only cost a few bucks compared to this one.

I have fixed this player by happenstance,costing nothing but a little time. Removing the bottom plate of the player exposes the driving mechanism that moves the laser along its glide, This player would not scan the width of the disc, There is a plastic rack gear driven by a small motor.The rack is spring loaded and can be depressed in order to move the laser along its glide without the motor running.
With a disc in the player, the bottom off and machine turned on, depress plastic rack and move the laser to the other end of its travel and watch for the drive motor to go crazy trying to put the laser where it thinks it should be. You can move the laser freely to any spot you wish back and forth making sure the drive motor responds. Then let go and it should start working. I think gummy bearings in the motor were at fault.Also the laser itself could be a problem if there is no beam working. It uses a HOP 1200 W laser pickup unit which can be obtained at Donberg Electronics in Ireland. One final thought. The bottom plate is held on by seven screws, one of which is longer than the rest. It must go in the hole it came out of because it anchors something inside the machine. GOOD LUCK !!!

My wii wont load up my game disk it just tells me to take it out and to read the operations manual for information and I cant find my . Why wont it let me play the game it wont even lshow the game going in...


There are many reasons why your game won't load. The most common are scratches/dirt from the disk and incompatible game (PAL/NTSC). If it was working before, clean your game disk and the lens of your wii by using a lens cleanser. If you just bought the game, return it back.

My new BD-HP16U will not play a blue-ray movie. I bought Avitar on blue-ray when I got the unit. When I insert the disk the start/title menu will load while display the movie preview. When I press...

Try a different disc, if it does the same, the reader eye is damaged or faulty, return & be sure to get another blue ray player, hope this helps

Ps3 won't play my ps3 disks or movies

Usually that means that the BlueRay drive is bad. You can replace the laser module to take care of it. THey are available on eb@y for $70 or so. Or you could return it to teh store, or send it out to Sony.

Toshiba SD-43HK Discs failing to load.

Sorry not a solution but experienced the same problem. The problem started off the same as you described by now my player won't play DVDs at all. Seems that the laser is faulty and it is cost prohibitive to repair (it's sold as a complete module which would be around £100). I've been advised to replace it :-(
