I have a technicks sl-pg380a audio player and it reads no disk..i tried putting in other disk everything..i took it apart and found out one of the motors wasnt working..the one that spins the disk..how can...


Be careful. The unit will attempt to verify that a disc is present BEFORE it tries to spinb the disk. If the optics are defective, this can happen. First try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Try to play a clean disc. If it fails to play or read the TOC, then the optics need to be replaced.

Please keep us posted,

Cd player loads cds but wont play them then spits them out or if they do play but not correctly


Hi. The problem is usually a lens fault.

Try first using a cleaner cd to clean the lens. If that does not work, the unit must be taken apart, and the lens cleaned using solution and soft cotton stubs.Lens cleaning may affect warranty status. Call manufacturer to get more info.

Here a general article on the topic, procedures to clean the lens are the same for CD and DVDs:My player does not read disks

My PS2 will play DVD, But I get disk read error when I try to play a game. I have already took it apart and cleaned the lens, and also adjusted the lens wheel.


well it´s time to change the laser lens...you can force adjusting the dvd laser focus in the micro pot located under the ps2 lens...but it´s better to buy a new lens unit..

Put disk in MESSEGE SAYS can't reconize disc.


First try the simple things....put a cleaning disc in it and try to clean the laser. If its too dirty to read the cleaning disc then you need to take it apart and manually clean the lens with a Q-tip and some windex (because alcohol will actually streak on the lens windex won't) if you still cant get it to read the discs then you may need a new laser.

Player shows '' No Disc'' even when inserted with a disk


When player says no disk, even if the disk inside, and you hear a whirring and clicking noise when you insert a disk, that means that the CD lens is dirty or defective, and the CD drive cannot read the initial CD track, and returns no disk.

Try first using a CD cleaner disk, if that does not work, then you will need to take the apart the unit to clean lens with isopropyil alcohol and cotton sticks.

My xbox wont read my game disc


if you can't send the xbox back to Microsoft this worked for me.
The 360 would spin the game up and say reading but than stop and do nothing.
I took the case apart, took out the cd drive, took that apart so i could get to the laser.
put a little big of very clean water on a q-tip, wipe the laser lens down and use the dry side to dry it off.  put it somewhat back together and test, this worked fine for me, it read a disk no problem.
