HELLO
This sounds very much like a laser problem. ALL DVD players have a dual laser (one for CD other for DVD). It is very likely that the DVD laser has gone defective that is why you can only play CD's.
Another thing you can try is to clean the laser lens using isopropyl alcohol and a cotton bud - laser may be dirty/dusty as this can cause problems too.
If after cleaning the lens you can still only play CD's, then the laser will be defective. This will be an expensive repair job therefore it's cheaper to buy another unit.
ALL THE BEST (:-)

Does not read Cds or DVDs


most sony CD and DVD players have a digital signature design to play CDs and DVDs that are original and licensed. some CDs or DVDs dont work since the player does not recognize or scan any digital signature embedded in the CD or a DVD. 2nd, lens problem causes most players not to read CDs nor DVDs. you can try to buy CD or DVD lens cleaners to have your lens cleaned.

My dvd player will not play any dvds or cds... It says disc error


Hello,

how long have you been using this player? The problem should be from the lens (laser).

The lens is weak and that's why it cannot read/load Cd's. The weak lens is also what's making it say disc error.

Get a lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens, but if the lens still does the same thing even after using the lens cleaner, then it means you would have to change the whole lens completely to a brand new one.

By so doing your player would play all Cd's with no problem at all.

Good luck.

I have a Hitachi DV-DS163A it will play cds but


Hello,

how long have you been using the player. The problem is from the lens (laser) of your player, its too weak to play DVDs. That is, the power of the lens cannot load DVDs anymore.

The lens still loads Cd's, because Cd's don't have much bytes, compared to that of DVD's. The lens needs to be extra active to be DVD's

Get a lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens, if that does not solve the problem, then its means, the lens needs to be changed completely.

Good luck.

My BOSS 380DVD will not load DVD's, it will play CD and the radio, but the DVD player stopped


This is normally caused by a dirty lens. It will play cds because they are easier to read, but dvds use the whole lens to play. You need to run a lens cleaner in your system and it will work like it should.

Plays cds but not dvds


If the lens is clean (clean with cotton swab and alcohol), then the optics are failing. DVDs require more power and accuracy to be read than CDs. The ability to read CDs but not DVDs is usually a good indication that the optics are starting to fail.
