    We've had this DVD player for less than 3 years. Tonight it stopped in the middle of a movie. I tried everything to get it to play and finally turned it off. When I turned it back on, it kept trying to load and then I got a "no disc" message. I tried again and it did the same thing and then tried another DVD. Nothing is working. I am going to get a cleaning disc and hopefully that will work. If not, it would seem to me that the most logical thing to do would be get a new one since repairing it would cost more than I paid for it.

My phillips 5.1 dvd player not playing dvd disc, only playing vcd


the laser lens on the optical pickup is dirty or scratched. to clean: buy a disk cleaner and use it per instructions. if it doesn't help, you can do it manually. remove the top, remove the top off of the disk assembly (you may have to remove the whole assembly first) until you see the lens. be careful with the cables and wires. use a lint-free swab (not a q-tip and not your finger), gently wipe off the lens. replace the covers and test. if it still doesn't work, it may be scratched or damaged. in which case, it needs to be replaced.

My dvd palyer shows NO DISC for any disc i want to play.


the laser is probably no good or the tiny motor that spins the disc is no good.there is a clamper assembly that goes in the hole in the disc.turn it and see if it spins freely.there is a bronze bushing on the top of the motor driving it ,and a small drop of light oil on the bearing will make it work again if it is gummed up..if the motor does not get the disc speed from 250 to 600rpm,fast,the laser does generate the proper info and the computer says error.yes the motors can be replaced,but the cost is as much as a new one

Player unable to load discs when inserted


http://forum.videohelp.com/topic350059.html

I think I found these adjustments! There are two tiny surface-mount potentiometers (could be capacitors also) sitting in the small circuit on laser assembly.

this is exactly response I would like to hear - an expert opinion!

What I did with help of 1mm-wide screwdriver:

1) There were two surface-mount potentiometers marked with C1 and D. I tried first D. Turned it clock- and counterclockwise by about 45 degrees.
2) After each turn I opened and closed tray to force the player read DVD disc.
3) It did not help, "NO DISC", then I tried the same with C1, and again, no luck.
4) Finally, I came back to D and turned it by about 180 degrees in one direction. IT WORKED!!!

Moreover, seem that now player reads content of the DVD discs faster then before. Probably manufacturer did not really adjust it properly and upon the time something has degraded, so it failed eventually.

"no disc" message


sounds like you have a problem with the laser.laser has to focus a lot sharper to play dvd thus will play vcd but not dvd.Try cleaning first and if this doesnt work would suspect laser faulty,.
