    I have the same exact problem. The player is exactly 2 years old. We put in a good DVD disc and end up with a Bad Disc error on the blue GoVideo screen. The disc is good on other players.

    We have the same model 2150 that is 1-2 years old. We had just finished watching a movie and then placed another movie in the player for a double feature and BAD DISC came up on the blue screen. We put in our laser lens cleaner DVD and tried again - the problem persisted. We also tried a new, never played DVD, and still got the BAD DISC message. When we listened to the disc in the player it was making a clicking, gear shifting noise.  Help....

    After copying a VHS tape to DVD and let it go to the end the DVD player does not recognize any blank DVD. After turning a while it comes up with the message BAD disk.

    dvd player says "bad disk" im trying to record vhs to dvd but am unsuccessful

  • elektrakid Mar 31, 2008

    We have 2 of these and almost simultaneously, the same problem occurred on both - new discs and old, cleaned & everything - definitely not "bad" but reading "bad disc" after "loading" for quite a while. Still have not heard any solutions but clearly I'm not alone.

I need to know if my Go Video player (model DV2150) can play dual layer DVD's.

1) you must read carefully the owner manual for instructions, about if your Dvd can play all Formats. However most of DVD can NOT play all format, they have restriction.
Please read instr. manual if you do not have it download. from
God bless you

I don't know if my first REQUEST for Assistance was received, at any case, I REQUESTED to find WHY my GO.VIDEO COMBO Player is NOT READING any of my blank DVD DISC( SONY, IMATION, MEMOREX, DVD+R ), IT KEEP...

If there is nothing on the disc, it will read, "no disc". It will only read and/or identify discs with media loaded or burned onto it. Your unit is a player, not a DVD+R (recorder). Can record VHS, but not discs.

My dv2150 says Bad Disc no matter what DVD I put in.

HI.This will occur when the optical assembly becomes unstable. this ((Whole One Piece)), assembly incorporates the spin/load motor, optics housing /arm, tracking device and tracking rail. This is connected to the loading dock assembly. This 'NO/BAD Disc' or CD NOT PLAYABLE, code is the result of a failed or burned out lens. It is possible that you have a dirty lens cap. you can try using a cleaning disk in this case to confirm actual lens failure. if the cleaning doesn't restore normal reading capabilities, this will confirm my diagnosis.

You will need to have the optical assembly replaced in this case. once replaced, your unit will be able to read and track once more.

My Dvd payer keeps telling me to check the disc,

If it is a commerical disc then your laser may be going out...if it is a material that was burned on a blank disc it might be formatted incorrectly for your player.

No matter what disc I put in it wont play and Bad Disc comes up on t.v. I know the movie discs are good ones.

Hello marciafoxmar,

If you know for a fact that the discs you are putting in, then there is obviously something wrong with the DVD player. When you put a DVD in your player, can you hear it spinning the disc at all? If your DVD is not even spinning the disk, I'm afraid your DVD player might be toast. If it does spin your discs, try a lens cleaning disc (available at pretty much any home electronics store or large chain store that sells home electronics). If that does not help, let us know and also let us know if you would be comfortable opening your DVD player.

Keeps flashing "Bad disc".....

Try playing a CD instead of a DVD, if the audio CD plays normally that means that the laser on the DVD side is defective. This devices come with 2 laser picks, one for CD and the other one for DVDs.

"Bad disc" message

You can buy a CD/DVD player cleaner, which is basically a set of brushes attached to a CD. This will gently brush the CD/DVD laser and hopefully that will restore your player to full working order.
