My DVD player no longer plays original dvd's - only copied dvd's
I am inserting an original DVD into my DVD player and you can hear it trying to read it but after a few minutes it displays "No Disc". I then put a copied DVD into the player and it plays this immediately. Why is this the case and any suggestions on how to overcome this??

Some times when you create DVD movies by high speed DVD writers, your data cannot be read by dvd player with high performance. it s due to speed mismatching. always write DVDs with Normal speed in order to use with DVD players. while in case oof PC-DVD -Rom it does not happens. it can read any high speed wriiten DVDs. DVD-Rom in PC are more precise than DVD players. Some times Weak DVD player Lens system can also mis read.

Does the disc you insert are original..If not is isn't posibbles for your dvd player to not recognize yor disc cause most of the branded dvd players like you have didn't read pirated disc..but if the disc you insert is original. Try to clean your dvd player using a dvd disc cleaner.
If the disc loads up and you can hear it spin, then you get the error, more than likely the optical lens has been damaged. This will have to be repaired by a local shop if its worth the cost. if the part is available it would probably run anywhere from 130-165 to repair
This sound like a problem with the laser read circuits and it may be solved with a simple cleaning and using compressed air to clear the unit of debris .To do this you must take off the top cover of your unit by taking out the screws and lifting the top off. To clean the laser head you should use cotton swabs and isopropyl alcohol. put a small amount on the cotton swab and rub the swab gently back and forth over the head, until it seems bright and shiny.Check the transport carriage for dust and debris and also the gears. all these must be clean for proper operation. You may want to put a little lithium grease on the gears and guide rails for smooth operation. All this should be done in minute amounts so you do not over do it and cause more problems. If all this fails to allow you to use you disc player, Then you probably have a worn out laser sensor and will have to have it replaced. If under warranty send it in and if not try to find the part number and order it and either take in to a service center for repairs or do it yourself. Hope this helps you with your problem.
I have the same problem. When I insert a disk, my NAD T 550 DVD player displays 'No Disc'. It started with new disks while still reading older disks, but at some time it stopped recognizing any disk. Did you receive any suggestion yet or has anyone a suggestion?
Press case lid where it attaches to player. If this makes unit react you have a defective lid switch. You can probably put some weight over it to hold lid down and it will operate. Otherwise switch must be repaired
There are several things you can do to try and solve your problem:
Make sure that the DVDs you try to play are encoded for the right region.
Make sure that the transportation lock (usually a plastic screw on the bottom of the unit), is not engaged.
Turn off player with disc inserted, unplug temporarily from wall outlet, plug back in and turn back on.
