My dvd player is jammed. making a funny noise. will not open sayes opening then closing then disk error. SD 3750

Disk Errors are commonly caused over time by buildup of dust and dirt on the laser lens inside the player, which may prevent the laser lens from being able to scan the digital information encoded on the DVD. You will need to purchase a cleaning DVD and follow the instructions that come with it. Hope this helps Good Luck!

I got LCD22-208 want play dvds it makes funny noise

There are three things you can do that will eventually give you a working solution. Depending on the level of problem. Start with 1 progress to 3 until it works.
1. Use a cleaning disc. (one that use an alcohol based liquid)
2. If the cleaning disc does not solve it, you can use an ear bud, with some iso-propyl alcohol to clean the DVD lens on the drive directly. (you have to open the player and the drive)
3. The guaranteed working solution is to replace the DVD drive inside the player. This is quite a simple process, as most players use a standard IDE DVD-ROM or DVD writer.
You simply remove the face plate, (apply power to the drive, and press eject first) the tray will open. Unclip the tray face, and then with the tray open you can unclip the plastic face plate too.
Remove the old drive, and fit the new drive by reversing the removal procedure.
Once everything is assembled you should be able to watch DVD's again. If you can't find a cheap DVD drive locally, try ebay.
I have done this on over 50 players for my clients in the past. I use LG DVD roms and DVD writers for the DVD recorders, irrespective of brand.
Let me know how it goes.

The first thing I would do is thoroughly clean the inside. Take particular care when cleaning around the upper left side. Sometimes a buildup of food steam or spray can cause the problem you are having. Never spray anything into the microwave, in an attempt to clean it.
Hope this helps.

Does not read the disc and makes a funny noise

If there is a bad noise coming from inside of your Wii when you are trying to load a game, either there is something stuck inside of the DVD drive or a part has fallen out of place. If you feel comfortable with it -- open up the Wii and check things out. Make sure the kids didn't put anything in the drive. If you're not comfortable with it, the following website does Wii repairs and sells the whole DVD drive unit for the Wii:

DVD is not working

It could be a number of things first make sure it is infact a DVD drive. I know it sounds funny but stranger things have happened. Next what program are you using to play the DVDs on. Windows media player will not play DVDs without installing additional software. Cyberlink DVD player is a good one to try or any free DVD player off the net. Another good choice is and download their free software and see if it works..
