SOURCE: DVD Player won't work

DVD's: does it display any kind of error? All DVD's?

To your second question.

The manual explains cable and TV hookup for CABLE but there is no mention of off-air TV tuning.

If you don't have the manual go to:

two of the main problems associated with players are their motor's and their lens. the lens emitts a light which reads the image off the disc, if the lens is going bad then that lighting signal isnt as strong as it should b and it wont be able to read the disc. on the other hand if the motor spinning the disc is spinning to slowly or it starts but doesnt continue spinning to allow the lens to read the disc then u will experience the problems that u are facing with your player.

solution: get the whole lens motor mechanism changed.

In SONY CD/DVD Player, it is able to read CD where as DVD is not able to be read. Saying NO disc. What could be possible reason and remedy for the same.


Some dvd have a multiple laser function for dvd and use a single laser for cd. common fault on not reading dvd is dirt on laser or fault on multiple laser that cannot read dvd. If cleaning doesnt help only repair tech can fix. Just check that the dvd is working in another dvd player to ensure it is not disk

Dvd player not working


If the disc isn't spinning, and you have cleaned the lens (using a proper method) then it is likely that the laser has failed. The disc usually won't spin until the laser has sent/recieved a pulse from the surface of the disc. A new laser is usually about the cost of a new player.
