SOURCE: Problem after installing new Lens for LG DVD Player !!

I've been working on DVD players since they were invented, and was factory trained by Sony, Hitachi, and Kenwood, but I must admit, I'm not understanding your question.
The laser diode fires through a lense, that is supended on tiny wires, and moved into focus by an electro-magnet. Now, I have replaced lenses that have popped off due to poor adhesive from the factory, but I have no idea what you mean by "unlocking the lense"
If you mean that you have replaced the entire laser ***'y, and it is not emitting, then that is likely because the shorting bar has not been removed. It protects the laser during shipping and storage, and must be removed. If you compare it to the old laser, you will see pins shorted together by a tiny metal bar, or in some cases just solder...if this is not removed, the laser will not emitt. If you put the old one in and it does, then 99% that is the problem...if the old one does not, then the laser is probably not your problem. Hope this helps, and be careful to always look at the laser at an angle to check for red light, so you aren't performing home laser eye surgery...not a good idea!

P.S. After re-reading your question, on some models, it is possible to replace the lense ***'y, because the electro-magnet has failed in some way, and does not move the lense, but if that is the case, I don't know why the laser would suddenly stop emitting, just because that was changed...normally it is all one ***'y. Good Luck!

Hi norberty

When you load a disk, do you hear a faint screaching sound, or the disc turn a tiny bit, but wont sart to spin? If that is what happens, then the spindle motor is lazy. You will need to replace it. Sometimes, you can get the motor to work again, by squirting some crc2-26 lubricant spray into the motor(through the bottom) Be careful not to use too much. Try this, if it doesnt sort it out, let me know here before you rate the solution, We can go further

SOURCE: laser disc player produces b&w only lately? pioneer cld-d504

Ooops, in my efforts to find laser disc INFO I ended up in a completely irrelevant category; because there no longer exists a Laser Disc category. So I shall abandon the laser disc player as technologically obsolete (there goes still another species of dinosaur off to the fossil beds) and give up on seeing those movies in color.

Unplug pc, open cabinet and look for dust and debris , clean with compressed air.
If it's still dirty use 50/50 distilled water and alcohol with a swab. Allow 30 minutes before plugging back in.

My pioneer blu ray player displays " no disc " message when insert any disc , Can you pls advice the chance of problem

The most likely problem is a bad optical pickup(the lens is part of that) aka laser. If the laser is weak, it can't read the disk, hence the error "no disk". For more information, or should you have further questions, please visit my website at You may contact me through the website. Thank you.

Is your DVD player malfunctioning? If you're getting a no-disc error, you may need to clean the DVD player's laser pickup. The laser pickup is what reads DVD's and allows you to view them on your TV. If you need to clean the laser pickup lens on a DVD player, follow these simple steps.
Difficulty: Moderate Instructions things you'll need:

  • Isopropyl alcohol
  • DVD lens cleaner
    • 1 Make sure the laser pickup lens is actually the problem. There are a wide variety of reasons that a DVD player might not read a disc efficiently. The disc could be scratched or dirty, for example. Test the DVD player with a disc that you know works before trying to clean the lens.
    • 2 Purchase or borrow a lens cleaner disc and try it first. You can find these things really cheap at any large department store. They usually get the job done well. However, you may need to clean the lens manually if the store-bought cleaner fails.
    • 3 Remove the outer casing of the DVD player. Remove the screws that mount the top casing onto the bottom of the DVD player and slide the top casing off. This will expose the DVD deck, which houses the laser pickup lens.
    • 4 Find the lens. The lens will be glass and under the DVD clamp. The lens will probably have a blue tint to it. If you are having trouble finding the lens, you could shine a light on the components and watch for the reflection.
    • 5 Use a cotton swab and some isopropyl alcohol to gently wipe the lens. Just a quick scrub will do. Dry the laser pickup lens with the other end of the swab.
    • 6 Give the lens a few seconds to dry and replace the covering of the DVD player. Test the efficiency of the player. If necessary, repeat the process.

Hi. You need to replace the opu (optical pickup unt), laser in other words. The laser diode is slowly getting weaker and the lens works in conjuntion with the laser. The reason it works when it's upside down is because gravity is pulling the lens closer to the disc, thus it does not need as much power to focus onto the tracks etched into the disc. Replace opu with type PEA1030 aka PU-23 Hope this helps you out and good luck.

If cleaning the lens on the laser does not solve the problem, then you will need a new laser or optical pickup. You may as well buy a new unit.
