Hello, My Philips DVDR7300H has a recording error after burning to dvd - burns VERY Slowly, and then gets hung on 95% - then "Disk Error" and the disk is then unreadable. It reads other previously recorded...

This happens with a number of drives.
1. DVD Dye type - but as you have tried DVDs from a batch that works seems unlikely.
2. Some drives dont like +R or -R If using +R try -R etc. Also some drives have problems with RW's used previously
3. Drive head travel is faulty. Sometimes only recording a max of 4Gb or 90% on a disk works OK.
Good Luck

Dvd won't play my dvd's. keep saying no disc or wrong disc. what is the problem

  • Hi, Sounds like the lens is just really dirty. Go buy a leans cleaner disk and run it through the DVD player two or three times to get the lens good and clean. Repeat about once a month to keep the lens clean and running properly. Sometimes you need to run it through 3 or 4 times to get the lens to read again.

  • These disks I speak of have little bristles on it that "sweep" the lens clean. I use them on all my disk players and they work real well.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

The go video DV2130 will not read a dvd. It loads, but will not play. Can this be fixed? No longer under warranty

  1. Make sure you have a non home made DVD. Some DVD players will not play DVD'S in certain formats.
  2. If you have a normal DVD in the DVD player and are getting "NO Disk" then there is a real good possibility the lens is just so dirty that it is not recognizing your DVD at all. This happens a lot to all disk players that are neglected from the cleaning process. Get a disk player cleaner and run it through a few times until the disk is read again. Sometimes the lens is so dirty you have to try a few times just to get the cleaner disk itself to play just to do the actual cleaning. Make sure to run that cleaner disk through once a week. These disk cleaners "sweep" the lens and work well. You can get one at your local Best Buy for $8usd.
  3. The last thing it could be is that somehow the lens has come out of alignment. Just a millimeter out of alignment is all it takes to not be able to read a disk and DVD players get bumped and knocked off the shelf easy. So this can happen often especially with the more smaller travel DVD player.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

I recenlty purchased a Memorex MVBD2520 Blu-Ray player. Upon trying to play a DVD, it read "This disk is incompatible." I've tried other disks, and tried CD's. I contacted Memorex, who sent me the...

I can suggest you to verify the unit is on BD mode. To do so, you have to press the USB/SD button on remote. If you already tried to load the firmware update and still that did not work; it seems like there is a problem with the actual laser lens.

This product has a year warranty, try taking it back to the store or contact Memorex at 1-877-363-6673 and ask how to get the unit replaced.

I am getting a "no disc" error on my memorex dvd player and was wondering if there was a way to fix this

There are a few things that you will want to troubleshoot:
First, if you have other DVD's that are being read with no problem, then either your DVD is scratched or unreadable or is in a format your DVD player cannot read (some of the newer DVD's will not read in older players) or your rating level is set to block the DVD.
If your player is not reading ANY DVD's after working normally, check to see that the carriage is not damaged and that it opens and retracts cleanly and smoothly, Use a professional cleaning kit and follow the instructions. Still not detecting your DVD's MP3 Discs or Video CD's? The lens and laser apparatus can be damaged and can fail over time for many reasons from being struck or jostled, a power surge, and just normal wear and tear. It might be time for a new one.

I have a Magnavox MWR 20v6, I keep on getting error messages.

I figured how to get the Memorex DVD-R's working again. I went and bought a DVD lens cleaner and all the errors stopped at least for a while I hope.

First, go to Panasonics Website Download all Firmware and software updates. Install in your recorder. The Website will tell you how to make a Disc to do this., Then Clean the inside of your unit of Dust etc., Clean Laser eye with rubbing alcohol use q-Tips. If your unit does not read the Firmware updates do clean as described first.
