You need to open up the unit and clean the laser lens with a q tip and some rubbing alcohol. If this does not work then the laser diodes have weakened and /or there is an issue with the digital signal processor. The latter two cases are not economical repairs.

Sony bluray player flashes wait


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
If your mini DVD player reads "No Disc" after you've loaded the disc, it means the machine isn't reading the DVD. Take the DVD out again and clean it. It's quite possible that the disc is simply dirty and cleaning it will solve the problem immediately.
If you try several different discs and clean them and you still receive a reading saying "No Disc," then the problem is in the laser and this will need to be fixed by a professional.
Clean a DVD disc:
  1. Hold the disc by its central hub and outside edge.
  2. Blow dust from the bottom surface with a can of compressed air.
  3. Clean dirt and fingerprints from the bottom surface with a lint-free cloth dampened with CD/DVD-cleaning fluid or denatured alcohol, wiping from the center outward.
  4. Clean the objective lens:
  5. Remove the housing and lift the hold-down clamp to expose the lens.
  6. Remove dust with canned air or soft brush. If needed, use a foam swab or a camera-lens tissue dampened with lens fluid

Why do dvd players say no disc when there is one in it?


This can be caused by several different things. It may be the read head assembly needs to be cleaned, the disc cannot be recognized. Or it could be a disc format which the player does not work with. Check the owner's manual for compatible disc formats. the Disc may be damaged or needs to be cleaned. The disc may need to be finalized by the recorder it was recorded on if a recordable disc. This is not the case for DVD-video as these are stamped discs.

You can try a cleaning disc but it may not solve the problem.
Inspect and clean the disc and try again.
Having the disc head assembly cleaned may be the answer but the service cost could be more than just buying a new player.

The dvds are not detected - No Disc or Disc Error


Hi. These steps should help.
  1. Check the disc you're using for scratches and dirt. If the disc is damaged it won’t play properly, regardless of the DVD player’s ability to function. You can use a DVD repair device like the "Disc Doctor" to repair the DVD or purchase a new DVD.
  2. Make sure the discs you're using fit the correct format specified by your DVD player. For example, if your DVD player doesn’t support home-burned DVD-R's, then you can’t use a DVD that you made at home. You may need to upgrade to a newer model, most of which accept the latest DVD formats.
  3. Clean the laser lens with a DVD laser lens cleaning disc. DVD laser lens cleaning discs can be purchased at most electronics retailers or online. Insert the laser lens cleaning disc and follow the instructions.
  4. Insert a correctly-formatted, undamaged disc into your player. Listen to see if it begins to read the disc. If it continues to make no sound and gives you the same message, then the problem is probably that your disc is not spinning in the device.
  5. Turn the device off and unplug it. Take off the outer casing by removing the three or four screws and lifting the top piece off. This will allow you to see if anything is simply stuck or jammed. If this is the case, a simple nudge back to the correct position will fix the problem.
  6. Clean the lens while the DVD player is open. A dirty lens is most likely the cause of your no-disc error. The lens should be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol and a cotton swab.
  7. Take your DVD player to have it professionally fixed only when none of these other solutions solves the problem. A professional repair technician will be able to tell you if fixing your DVD player is worth the money.

Sony DVD player reads no disc after inserting disc?


Its due to faulty Laser Lens/head. Try cleaning it by cleaning CD. If still the problem persists, contact near by service center.

PORTABLE DVD PLAYER NOT SPINNING DISCS AND SAYING NO DISC


When it is region lock it will say it on the display, if the player is not reading any disk, it is more likely a lens problem, see below:

Try first using a lens cleaner disk, like the ones here.

If that does not work, the unit must be disassembled, and lense cleaned with q tips and isopropyl alcohol or cleaning solution. See below:

Dvd player won't play disc


There are a few different cleaning kits out there these days for DVD or CD players. I would recommend one that actually has fibers on it so the it brushes the lense of the DVD player. These cleaning kits can be found just about anywhere. Have you tried to clean it with anything?
