Re: Dvd reads wrong disc

Since 4 days I've searched 99% of internet to fix 'Wrong Disk' solution for my DVDV822-05 Player, but I could not get any such solution. Some solutions for other players of the same company is to change region codes but I could not find these codes for this particular model. I got this player from some other country which I dont know. It's sayying 'Wrong Disk' to all disks either MP3, audio, VCD, DVD etc. It's my humble request to all e-guys and companies to find some solution for this model.

Re: Dvd reads wrong disc

It means the disc is not a format the player supports, or has no playable files.

Hi mgarragh1,
If you have necessary tools and test instruments, know safety precaution in basic troubleshooting try the steps below to solve your problem.
Assuming that the disc is good.
1.Clean the lens. - Sometimes because of dust the lens can't read any disc. Try clean the lens by soft cotton buds. Be careful while doing this.
2.Replace the ribbon - Check the ribbon connected to the lens from the main board for scratch, damage. Once it has an open line then of course the lens can't read the disc. Also try to erase the contact by pencil eraser. If you've done the steps above and the symptoms still there then the next step requires you a little knowledge in soldering technique and reading the ohmmeter.
3.Check the motor - Check the motor that spin the disc with an ohmmeter. You can test it using the ohmmeter (x1) even it is connected on the lens assembly.Good motor - reading should be fairly high and it will spin. Bad motor- reading will drop to low resistance and will not spin.
Hint : 50% of my repaired unit the above parts are commonly caused of the problem.
If you confirmed that you have a defective motor then replace it with a new one. Before replacing the new motor you have to check the clearance of the disc holder with the old one. The clearance should be the same as the old because if not the lens will not read the disc if it is too far or too close.

Ifyou already cleaned the lens, and confirmed that the ribbon is good as well as the motor then I would advice you to send it to repair shop because the next step should be done with an expert because it is quite technical diagnosing the fault between the pick-up lens and the main board.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

Disc inserted but NO DISK message appears

Try other discs to see if its still working properly...most likely the recording on the disc is not burnt properly or there's something wrong with the disc, (ie, scratched or surface dirt etc) or the DVD player just can't read the disc...for example can it read the type of disc(does it read dvd+r or dvd-r, or both?--- if i remember rightly)..... I've had discs that have had bad recordings but can still be read if placed into tray a particular way around... randomly try different positions, also cleaning disc as you go...depending on how desperately you want it to read the disc...could also be bad disc batch... there could be many reasons...

Warfdale portable dvd player wont play dvd wrong discs

It may have a setting in the menu for DVD or CD but should on its own play either if designed for that.

Also if all discs give this reading it can be either a dirty or bad optical pickup in the unit.

After I insert a dvd disc in the dvd drive, it still asks me to isert a disc in the drive. It seems that it is not able to read the disc. We currently subscribe to netflix. Certain dvd"s whhen inserted...

If it is a hardware fault, a fault in your drive, it occurs on every disk
if it is a disk fault it occurs only when faulty disks are used.
Probably Netflix discs are bad, wrong region code, or scratched, or badly copied

Dvd player will not spin disk

Unfortunately, your DVD player is broken. Portable units like these often get bumped and jostled and the motor that spins the DVD quits (very small and fragile). Sorry, I wish there were a magic button.
