Re: Cd's

I have heard of some systems that use separate lenses for CD and DVD reading. Try cleaning the lenses and see if it helps any. If not, give me your model number and I will investigate further.

I have made several attempts to play a disc on my JVC TH-V70. IT reads 'reading' on the dvd unit then after a few second the disc ejects. Why is this happening?

Hi Adrienne - If it only happens to the one DVD it is most likely a problem with the DVD being damaged or dirty.

If it's happening with all your DVDs your player laser lens is probably dirty or it might be damaged. If no discs are being read get yourself a CD/DVD cleaning disc and run it a couple of times (following the directions). Of this doesn't work you will have to decide if the player is worth the price of a repair (unless it's still under warranty). Most aren't as you can buy decent players for less than $50. Any repair will cost at least that.

If it is the one disc I suggest you take a clean soft cloth and wet it slightly with plain water and the give it a few strokes across the disc (not in circles), let it try dry for a few minutes and try it again. Also examine the disc (bottom) for any obvious scratches or stuck on gunk.

Good Luck and thanks for using Fix Ya.

My dvd's try to spin about a few rotations then stop and it always says NO DISC regardless the type of cd/dvd i insert I was wonderin if it was something to do with the gears because it seems the laser is...

Hi, when a DVD system spins for awhile and does not play, it means that the Lens Which makes the CD inserted rotates, is to weak to play the inserted. Happens when the Lens is dirty.

You will need to clean up the lens by using a DVD lens cleaner. Comes inform of a CD and comes with instruction.

After cleaning the Lens, if still does not play,that means you will need to replace the Lens inside the system with a new Lens.

Have a nice day....

There error reads that "this type of disc cannot

The Systems that I have is an SC-HT70/SC-HT65 which appears to be almost the same type of system. My system cannot play the following disc:
*DVD with an unsuitable region number
*PAL system discs
8DIVX Video Disc
*Photo CD etc.
Therefore, you will not be able to play any of these in your system.
If you are in the USA or Canada, you can play any DVDs that is marked with the number 1 or ALL.
Hope this helps

DVDs & CDs will not play

If you are playing STANDARD CD or regular DVD that you have purchase and you are having this problem,your dvd player is malfunction;however,if you are playing DVD burner disc or a different dvd region disc(we are region 1 in U.S.) that is no going to work.Same thing for your CD burner disc,it might not work.
If you are using a rental dvd disc,check and see if there is scratches?If so,try to get one without that many scratches!

DVD won't play

Is this happens on every disc? The NO PLAY message appears when "The disc that this unit cannot play is loaded (from the user guide)". Maybe it's something to do with the DVD region? If you sure that the system supports the disc's format.. And it won't play other discs... try to clean the CD lens. CD lens cleaning discs: Every CD, stereo equipment, department, discount, store - and even sidewalk venders - carries CD lens cleaning discs. Are they of any value? Can they cause damage? I generally don't consider CD lens cleaning discs to be of much value for preventive maintenance since they may just move the crud around. However, for pure non-greasy dust (no tobacco smoke and no cooking grease), they may not hurt and could even do a good enough job to put off a proper cleaning for a while longer. However, it's also possible they will ruin the lens. Consider that the worst thing to do to a precision optical surface is to wipe it with a dry cloth as this is likely to scratch the surface as it rubs the dust over it. To the lens, a speck of dust is like a boulder. Once the lens is scratched, replacement of the entire optical pickup is the only remedy. And, since there are absolutely no sorts of standards for these things, it is possible for a really poorly designed cleaning disc to damage the lens even if the dust itself is non-abrasive. In addition, if the cleaning disc doesn't look like a CD to the optical pickup or disc-in sensor, the lens it may not even spin. So, the drawer closes, the drawer opens, and NOTHING has been accomplished! (But at least no damage will be done.) As if this isn't enough, NEVER put one into a high-X CDROM (DVD player or DVDROM drive). The high speed rotation may cause the cleaning disc and/or player/drive to self destruct. And, don't try a cleaning disc on an automotive CD player that sucks in the disk - it will get stuck.
