if the red ray disk is not playing in the system that means there is some problem with pick-up assembly. u need to open the cover, clean the pick-up assembly's lens very gently. if that does not work that means you have to replace the pick-up assembly first.

I get disc error when inserting a disc into my Denon DN S700

Are you using the correct format of discs? It requires Standard compact disc (12 cm), types CD-TEXT, CD-R, CD-RW (CD-R and CD-RW disks must be finalised before using - but even then will not always be accepted) It will not work with CD+R or CD+RW
If it will not work with ANY CD (including professionally produced CDs) then the lens may need cleaning. Purchase a CD cleaning disk (a computer CD cleaning disk will work fine) pop it in the slot and hit the play button.

  • Check the disc you're using for scratches and dirt. If the disc is damaged it won't play properly, regardless of the CD player's ability to function. You can use a CD repair device like the "Disc Doctor" to repair the CD or purchase a new CD.

  • Clean the laser lens with a CD laser lens cleaning disc. CD laser lens cleaning discs can be purchased at most electronics retailers or online. Insert the laser lens cleaning disc and follow the instructions.

  • Insert a correctly-formatted, undamaged disc into your player. Listen to see if it begins to read the disc. If it continues to make no sound and gives you the same message, then the problem is probably that your disc is not spinning in the device.

  • Clean the lens while the DVD player is open. A dirty lens is most likely the cause of your no-disc error. The lens should be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol and a cotton swab.

    My cd-dvd drive does not recognize discs, so movie discs are not played when I use Win Media player. I insert a disc and there is no automatic recognition of inserted disc.

    You should clean your CD-Drive lens with Disk cleaner Cd that will work or move anticlock wise and your problem will be solve after cleaning the lens.

    Good Luck

    My disk drive is not reading the cd. I have tried blowing it out, but it just shows that it is trying to read the disk then stops thinking.

    Clean smudges off of disc with microfiber cloth and a little water.  Disc will not play if heavily scratched.  Insert different discs isolate the problem.  If other discs won't play, then you optical disc reader is fu.k.d up. Get you a CD disc cleaning kit from one of those box stores and try cleaning the optical reader that way.  If that don't work, then you need IT to open this puppy up and replace the optical drive.  Do it yourself if your IT.  Order the optical drive for cheap on e-bay.

    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.
