Sanyo DVD-DX405 No Disc message

It keeps on loading the disc for ages and then says 'No Disc', no matter what disc we try. I'm wondering if I've connected it correctly to my Sharp CX48KA television: yellow connection in yellow coloured plug, white in white. My TV has no place for the red connection, so I don't know whether to put the red DVD connection anywhere. We had a different DVD player connected with just yellow and white, and that was no trouble at all.

Have you checked to see if it is off track? Sometimes when these machines get bumpbed, dropped, or fall they can jump track. You have to take the cover off and inspect to see if it is off track when it closes and opens. It should go all the way back on the track when it closes. Be careful not to shock yourself. If it is on when you do it and your hand touches the metal parts inside you can get seriously burned or shocked.

did you check to see if you had the audio video cables on the dvd player plugged in the right place also you might want to get a s-video cable it is much easier that way not toooo much problem to hook it up you plug it in to your tv and the other part of the cable plugs into your dvd player where it says s-video

SOURCE: Incompatible Disc in Sharp BD-HP21X Blu-Ray Disc Player

I had the exact same problem as you did... I bought the Sharp Aquos 42D85X which came with Sharp BD-HP21X Blu-ray Disc player. could not get brand new blu-ray movies to play and i found it froze everytime after 10 secs. I phoned sharp who basically were no help watsoever! I then went and returned my blu-ray movies back to the store thinking it was a problem with the discs.. The people there were extremely nice and since they had a display model of the BD-HP21X instore they offered to test the movie on it to veroify whether it was the blu-ray player was the problem or not. Turns out its a fault with all of the BD-HP21X models. So we then ended up returning it back to the store we bought it and exchanged it with the older model (BD-HP20X). I now have no problems playing blu-ray movies. Although another suggestion is to perhaps download the lastest firmware update & see if that resolves your issues.

yes that is very possible. cleaning the lens of the dvd player should happen atleast once a month. it can also be that the lens itself is scratched or the lase does not reach the disk tracks due to dust or bad handling

When I load a dvd into the player, after a while it says "no disc" and nothing plays.

Do the "bad" disks work on some other DVD player?
Or, do the "bad" disks work on some computer with a DVD drive?
Dirty disks with lots of greasy fingerprints?

Recording Error, Can not record on this disc, E 4 54040990 Just trying to record from TV on a Memorex DVD+RW. Keep getting this error. Any ideas?

Recently started getting the same error message. I thought it was because I was getting to close to full or something that was trying to over fill the discs. Have tried EP and LP and this just started when I had a disc set to record to the end. I can't even open that one or finalize it. The rest do the same. They are working fine and when the error comes up, ZAP the disc is dead, no access.

I also tried putting the same disc into another Magnavox DVD recorder, still no access. These are both the most reliable recorders I've ever owned and I've had a number.

magnavox error message dvd "e 6 2a031000 can not record on this disc."

I suspect at this point, a batch of cheap Nexxtech DVDs. Also it's possible that it's a heat problem with the recorder? Once the disc goes into error mode, it's unreadable and all recordings that haven't been written to the TOC become invisible, but that time is forever lost on the DVD.

DVD is visibly (looking at recording surface) FULL but the supposed record time isn't used up. Data error. Discs reporting wrong size. Try a different brand of DVD.

Philips dvp 3020 dvd player will not play, the "no disc" sighn keeps coming on.

Try this. Wait for the "no disc" sign to appear, and only after that load the dvd. The 3020 I have works alright when I use this method.
