Try to play various DVD's and get "insert disc" message .
This rarely happened at first, but now occurs most of the time I press the play button on my Sony DVP-NS700P. This player is about 3 years old. I have a feeling the reader is out of alignment and their is no easy fix.

Re: Try to play various DVD's and get "insert disc"...
This could just be a dirty laser lens. Turn the unit on and open tray. While the tray is open unplug the unit without turning off so the tray stays open. Remove the cover and under the disc clamp is the optical pick up assembly. The lens can be cleaned gently with a alcohol dampened q-tip. The lens should look clear not hazy. If this does not help the whole pick-up assembly will have to be replaced. There are no adjustments that can be made on these, they are factory set. Go to www.encompassparts.com and click on guest log in, or http://servicesales.sel.sony.com (search is in the upper right, make sure to change drop down menu to psrt number) and use this part number A-6062-705-A to get prices.

System settings were lost: You need to reset the time and date from the Nintendo GameCube Main Menu. To access the Main Menu, turn the power ON while holding down the A button on the controller. Follow these steps to reset the time and date:
From the Main Menu Screen, go to the Calendar Screen by pushing RIGHT on the Control Stick. Press the A Button to display Calendar Menu choices of Date or Time. Use the Control Stick (UP or DOWN) to highlight your menu item and press the A Button to select your choice. Use the Control Stick (LEFT or RIGHT) to highlight the number you want to change, then (UP or DOWN) to adjust the value. Press the A Button to accept your choice. Press the B Button to return to the Calendar Menu or the Main Menu. Pressing the B Button before accepting your choice with the A Button will return you to the Calendar Menu without changing the settings. If the same error continues to happen, you will need to have your system repaired as it is likely you have an internal battery malfunction. Please use our convenient repair options.
Wrong Game Disc: This message happens when a Game Disc has been removed while the system is on, and a different Game Disc is inserted. Re-insert the original Game Disc.
No Game Disc: This error can occur when the Game Disc has been removed while the system is on and then the Disc Cover is closed. Follow these troubleshooting steps:
Ensure the game is inserted correctly. With the power turned off on the system, replace the Game Disc in the system, printed side up. Press down gently on the Game Disc until it locks on the center hub. Close the Disc Cover and press the power button ON to see if the game comes on the screen.
Determine if this happens with more than one game by inserting a different game into the system.
If the error occurs with all games, follow the Multiple Game Disc troubleshooting.
If the error occurs with only one game, follow the individual game disc troubleshooting.
You can't add a title to a disc from a player (such as this). You can only add a title on a disc writer before finishing the disc. (The only exception is RW (rewritable) disc which can be unfinished.) If a title (disc, chapter or track) is on the disc you can display it. Press Title on the remote. If you want to read all of the information on any disc, insert the disc and press Load on the player (when in Stop mode) or press the TV/DiscExplorer/DVD button to set the unit in Disc Explorer mode. It takes about 30 seconds to load the data. Press Stop to cancel the data search. Then use the folder buttons (ALL,DVD,CD,A,B,C,D) on the remote or the player to read the various items. Press Return to leave the folders. If you enter the Disc Explorer while playing a disc, the playback will stop and you will have to press Play to restart (Resume is not an available option).
Once loaded the player will store the data even after you remove the disc. It will clear when a new disc is inserted or you press Load.
Try unplugging the unit, then remove the cover. Take a cotton swab, wet one end with glass cleaner, and clean the lens on the laser assembly. Use the other end to dry it off and finish cleaning. Wipe very gently, do not press down hard on the lens.
This problem is usually (not always) caused by dust and smog accumulating on the lens, preventing the laser from reading the disc. Symptoms are skipping, spinning and not reading, or "no disc" errors.
I get this message occasionally on my Panasonic DMR-ES15. It's actually a really simple fix. It occurs when there is a corruption in the disc which causes the recording mechanism to malfunction. There is a separate error message for this, however it is usually not detected until it's too late. When the recorder asks you to carry out the recovery process, do it. When the disc ejects, make sure you take the disc out that was in there when it occured and throw it away...it will keep happening because the disc is permanently corrupted. However, do not close the tray without a disc or the self-check will fail. Instead pop in a disc of the same format that the error occured in (if it was DVD+RW then put in a DVD+RW). It resolves the problem every time on the first try. (It only happened two times in a year and a half for me). As the manual says the unit is "NOT BROKEN".
