Either you have to clean the glass laser eye with rubbing alcohol and cotton swab, if cleaning doesn't help read the disc, then the laser lens circuit is faulty due to bad capacitor and will need to be replaced.

    Either unplug unit for an hour, press power button, wait another half hour, then plug back in and see if it opens then, If not, then you will have to pry it open, After open, take out disc, pull tray back gently far back as it will go, then try pressing power button again to see if track will go back in and act normal again. If door does still not work, then motor or circuit may need to be replaced

Sometimes Xbox 360 won't read disc


Hi...

Get a can of "Dust-off" from radio shack or walmart

It has an extension tube for the can . Use it and spray into the drawer slot with the drawer open. Swish it around a bit and wait for things to warm back up.

Also check your game disc for extra smudges or scratches that might need to be polished out

If this help,please rate my help

Thanks

Hp dvd/rw does not read discs


If the CD or DVD disks you inserted work in some other reader, then your reader is the problem -- even though it is properly connected to your computer, and Windows has the correct device-drivers, it is the "hardware" that is the problem.

When you insert a disk, rotate it to some position, i.e., top-lettering goes in first, and close the drawer. Do you hear the drive start to spin the disk? Open the drawer. Is the disk in the same (non-rotated) position? If so, then the motor that spins the disk is the problem. If the disk does spin, but nothing happens, then it is the "laser" part of the mechanics that is not working.

Replace it.

Kenwood dv-505 door will not open


THERE IS AN EMERGENCY OPEN OPTION ON MOST ALL DISK DRIVES, LOOK RIGHT BELOW THE DRAWER USUALLY TO THE RIGHT FOR A SMALL PINHOLE. GET A PAPER CLIP AND STRAIGHTEN ONE END OUT, INSERT STRAIGHT INTO HOLE UINTIL YOU FEEL IT STOP AT THE MANUAL RELEASE CATCH AND GENTLY PRESS UNTIL YOU HEAR THE DRAWER BEGIN TO OPEN.
BLOW ANY DUST OUT, AND CHECK THE PC AND DRIVE WEBSITE FOR A POSSIBLE FLASH UPDATE FOR YOUR DRIVE MODEL. THEY ARE OFTEN POSTED WHEN DRIVES SHOW PROBLEMS READING SOME OF THE NEWER DISK BEING MADE. THIS HAS WORKED FOR ME A FEW TIMES IN THE PAST.

To install wii fit


    "Unable to read the disc" / "Disc could not be read" / "Eject the Game Disc" Error Message.
    If you are getting one of the above error messages:
  • Ensure that you are properly loading a Game Disc. insertdisccorrect.gif
    • If your console is placed vertically, the disc label will face to the right.
    • If your console is placed horizontally, the disc label will face upwards


  • If you know you are inserting the Game Disc correctly, but are still have the same problem with only one game (or if you only have one game), try cleaning the Game Disc by following the disc cleaning procedures

  • If after reading the above information you are still unable to play a game disc, please call 1-800-255-3700 to discuss available options.
