Displaying "Disc Error"

Working fine one minute watching a movie. Took that one out and tried to watch another to no avail. Now only displayes "disc error" and "check disc" on any DVDs placed in the player. DVDs work on other players, so it is not a defective DVDs. Please Help!
Thank you in advance for your time and effort,
Karu

Hey

The laser lens could be dirty, try a dvd laser lens cleaner.
Something like this one : http://www.amazon.com/Maxell-DVD-LC-DVD-Lens-Cleaner/dp/B00000JPPI


if the cleaning disc doesn't correct the problem and if you are outside of warranty, you can open up the dvd player, get to the dvd drive, and clean the lens yourself with a Q-tip and alcohol 70% - I've myself used water on the qtip a few times and it has worked aswell.

Here is a example video of how you would clean the lens on your dvd player, this is for another device but this is exactly how you would clean the lens with a Q-tip.

What is Netflix DVD


There are SEVERAL services out there now other than Netflix if you are looking for a movies that you don't see on Netflix. I highly suggest a Smart TV with apps on it already. Amazon Prime is one kind of service with Netflix does not have it. Sometime Hulu Plus is another.

No Valid Disc


I had tried cleaning the lens like most solutions said to do, with no luck. I tried what user gthumm said he/she tried, which was taking off the back of the player. Their problem was the white wheel (motor) and the next wheel (black) were not turning smoothly. He/she pushed the white wheel down until it snapped back in, allowing the wheels to turn. I tried it twice and finally, I have a working portable dvd player again! Yeah! Thank you so much gthumm and fix ya team! My kids especially thank you! You are the BEST!

Try to play a disc and the player says ''bad disc''


Have you tried unplugging the DVD player and letting it sit for a couple of minutes? If that doesn't work try holding the power button as you unplug/plug the machine.

Suddenly quit working


Looks like the lens of the player is dirty or damaged. Try a lens cleaner CD first.

If it doesn't work then you will have to get the lens replaced. Since the Player is still under warranty use while you still can..

Try this out; Go to your DVD player's settings/setup menu, find the "Disc Lock", set it to "off" if it is already set to "on"
