Question about RCA RC5240P

1 Answer

My RCA RC 5240P does not detect the disk.

No matter what disk I put in it just flashes "NO DISK". This thing is not that old and hardly used. The manual says unplug for 2 minutes, this does nothing. Anything I can try? Anything!? Thanks Rick

My BDP-51FD can not read disc. At the time I bought I already feel it's very picky for the disc. And thing's getting worst later. And now it even showed no disc no matter what kind of disc I put in. I feel...

Try updating the software from more than likely going to have to put the software update on a disk, burn it, and install it. The old Sony's work the same way but are hard. Good Luck

Everytime I put in a disk in the player it searches and comes up no disk. I tried using my cleaning disk and it doesn't even acknowledge it. The dvd player is a RCA DRC277

Hi...The only other thing you can do is:
UNPLUG from the AC..Take the top case off and see if there is any access to the laser lens..( very small "1/8th inch" clear plastic)
If you can , clean it( VERY lightly) with swab of 90% alcohol

RCA DRC290 "No Disk"

The noise you hear is an attemp to read the disk, which fails. If you can gain access to the optics assembly, try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that fails to resolve the problem, the optics are likely failed and will need to be replaced.

Hope this helps,

When i insert my disc in proton 5.1 home threater then it says no disc..i am using it after months so the disc which worked on it before now the do says no disc...plzz help me with it

Try using a DVD cleaning disk-If you already have done that- then try this before you take the machine in for repair. Take a HOSPITAL straw(you know, the type that bends) and insert it into the disk drawer. Now blow very hard-but try not to get spit down the straw. Move the straw around blowing up and down and sideways until you think you have really covered everywhere in the DVD slot. Then if you have one , put your DVD cleaning disk in, and run it. I know it seems like a crazy thing to do, but it has worked for others in the same situation. It works on RCA multi disk CD players too. If that doesn't work-it would probably be cheaper to purchase a new machine than get it fixed. Let me know if this helps. Remember that DVD lasers do burn out from time to time, and cannot be fixed.
