"Sensor unit that reads the Disc". When I try to play a disc it tells me it cannot "Read Disc". I purchased a new part "KHM-240AAA SERVICE ASSY ". When I replaced it with the old part I'm getting nothing out of the system. The disc reader is not even spinning, when I put the old part dack in at least it's spinning but still same error " Not reading Disc". I mail the company I bought the part of, they suggested I reset factory settings of my DVD?
How do I reset settings or do you think there is a different problem.

The player works speed sensor for drive. Home produced or scratches videos are harder for it to read and if after a certain time interval of not being able to read it the player goes to a default(No Disc). A lot of times this is a mechanical problem which can be solved by lubricating the rod that the laser reader rides on as well as the DVD holder which grabs the disc, I use silicone lube. It does require removing the cover of the unit and removing part of the drive. Good luck..
The clicking noise is the optical unit trying to read the disc. When its working normally the CD spin's and the system reads the table of content ( info: on the CD ) and the disc stops till you give the next command , e.g PLAY etc. Now when the laser beam is weak due to dust on the lens or age, the unit starts to hunt for the CD by popping the len up and down trying to focus the laser beam to get a strong reflection. This constant up and down movement is the clicking sound you are hearing. Either unit has dust on the lens or is due for replacement ( if it has done more than 500 / 750 hours ).
Is it just that disk or are all the discs not reading?? If it is just that disc try cleaning the disc with a lint free soft towel. Also is the disc a factory dvd or a burnt copy of media. Some dvd players will not play certain re-write discs some play DVD-R and some play DVD+R and some will play both ... good luck
if the disc starts to rotate when helped by hand then you definately have a weak spindle motor. dvds spin faster than cds which gives more wear & tear to the motor. i've repaired these faults numerous times. hope this helps?
Our started doing the same thing about a week after the warranty ran out. It has to do with the alignment of the discs being loaded. here's a work-around that works for us: Open the tray Choose which disc you are going to watch and use the Change Disc button to push the selected disc to the back (ie, if you want to view Disc 1, discs 3 and 4 will be visible in the tray). Look down the center holes of discs 3 and 4... manually move your tray left-or-right to align the holes with the tray. Push the Direct Play button on the top right of the unit for your disc of choice (Disc 1 using the example above).
hope that helps... I've searched for a while and played around with the unit (with and without the cover on) trying to figure out a way to re-align the tray, but no luck.
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! Joe
