Sony tend to have a notorious disc lasers... couple of things you might want to try..

1. clean the lens using a standard Lens cleaning CD.
2. Try playing a CD (music) instead of DVD (if this is likely that the lens is not reading DVD)

I have had Sansui vrdvd4005 for many years. now i put in a dvd that i have been able to play in the past but it says 'reading' and never runs the dvd. help. i bought a cleaning dvd but that did not...

Cleaning DVDs that look like a DVD with a small brush on them will rarely work. After unplugging unit try opening unit and using a Qtip and rubbing alcohol try VERY GENTLY cleaning the optic on the player. If this does not work player will need to be replaced.

DVP-NS30 shows "CANNOT PLAY" message when DVD inserted

Follow this procedure to troubleshoot if the DVD player cannot read or play the inserted disc.
  1. Ensure the inserted disc is compatible with the DVD player.IMPORTANT: Refer to the operating instructions supplied with the product for a list of compatible disc. Manuals are available online in the Manuals/Specs/Warranty section of the Sony® eSupport Web site.
  2. Use a soft cloth to clean the disc.
  3. Examine the disc for any cracks or scratches that might be interfering with playback.
  4. Attempt to play another disc.NOTES:
    • If another disc plays in the DVD player, then the previous disc is faulty.
    • Some recordable discs may not play correctly because of the quality of the recording, the physical condition of the disc, or the characteristics of the recording device or authoring software used.

  5. Remove the disc from the DVD player.
  6. Turn off the DVD player.
  7. Unplug the power cord of the DVD player from the AC outlet.
  8. Let the DVD player remain without power for 1 minute.
  9. Plug the power cord back into the AC outlet.

Sometimes after inserting a DVD into my Zenith DVD player and start playing it it plays for awhile and then freezes every so often. What can I do?

The problem with the unit is the drive circuits are locking up either from overheating or aging. If in warranty send it in for service. If not in warranty look in your owners manual for the Zenith website and check the frequently asked question and troubleshooting sections. See if someone has posted this problem and gotten a solution. If not call the technical service telephone number and get technical help with your problem. You can also try opening, your unit and looking at the drive circuit and dvd carriage to see if the accumulation of dust and dirt has caused a problem with the operation.Use compressed air and clean out the carriage and around the circuit boards.Only work on the unit with the power off and unplugged for your saftey. You can also try using a fan to cool the internal circuits of the unit. It may just need better air flow. You should clean and check the laser and carriage every six months to make sure it has not accumulated dust and dirt that may affect the units operation.To clean the laser use cotton swabs and a small amount of isopropyl alcohol. Rub the head of the swab across the laser head gently until it looks clean and shiney.You may want to use a little lithium grease to lube the carriage and gears. Also check all belts for wear. I hope this helps you with your problem.

Suddenly "cannot play this disk" on Sony DVD/CD..every DVD...CD's work!

I have the same problem. I have a 5 year warranty from the company I purchased the unit from. I am not sure if they will replace it or not. I am reluctant to buy another one with this known issue. We have enjoyed the unit for nearly 3 years with no issues.

Problems with Samsung DVD-VR330 Combined VCR and DVD Recorder

You have a dirty laser lens! There are two different ways to solve this problem on this unit...( and yes, I do own this unit and have cleaned it both ways)! 

First and most simple method.......Go to WalMart. Spend  $15.00. Buy a DVD laser lens cleaner. Follow the instuctions. Use after every 10 hours of play.

Second and more complex. On excessively dirty lenses that have not been cleaned with the above mentioned product....get a Philips screwdriver.
Remove three screws in the rear of the unit, and two more screws on each side of the case that hold the top portion (black in color) of the case together. This top portion will simply slide off by pulling it backward from the from the faceplate (which does not need to be removed).
If unplugged, plug the dvd player in and eject the tray. Unplug the player leaving the tray out. Locate the laser lens.... (a clear piece of plastic that is round and about 3/16" in diameter). The lens will be facing up towards the top of the player.
Get a Q Tip and some Windex window cleaner and wet one end of a Q Tip and clean that lens throughly and dry it with the other end.
Plug the player back in and close the tray.
Unplug the player and reassemble the unit.
The next time you plug your Samsung DVD VR330 in and to play your DVD....IT WILL PLAY.
