Buy a cleaning CD. It's a CD with either small brushes attached to one side of the disc or it will have a type of soft material on one side and may come with a cleaning solution like alcohol. You should be able to pick this up at your local walmart, bestbuy, futureshop, circuit city. Depending on where your are they are easy to find and shouldn't cost more than $20.

Where is the lens to clean on Sharp component system?


Hello
To clean the lens, you have to open the device and access the loading mechanism. it is really a skilled job. If you want to clean the lens only, there is a simple way. Just put in a lens cleaning disc into the device, and play it for about three times at least. Take the disc ejected each time, and put it in after. The lens cleaning disc can be bought from most of the electronic spare part selling shops at your town, and won't cost more. You can clean the laser head lens, by this way, without opening the device. OK.

When playing a dvd, it loads then says no disk. This just started yesterday & does it with all dvds.


Either the laser has suddenly burned out without warning, or there's something on the lens.
My first guess is something on the lens
Don't open the unit if it's under warranty...return it.
If you want to do it yourself, remove the cover so you can get at the lens.
With a q-tip and isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol, VERY GENTLY wipe the lens clean.
Put in a DVD while the unit is open.
Everyone says the laser is outside the human visual spectrum but that's hogwash...when the disc is in, you should be able to see the laser right through the disc.
If you can't and it's still saying no disc, the laser is likely burned out.
The other possibility is that the unit isn't spinning the disc.
In either case, it needs to be serviced by an expert or replaced.

Wii will not read discs


clean the game disc. Nintendo recommends using a clean, lint-free cloth and water to clean game discs. Use short strokes and gently wipe from the center of the disc out to the edge. Do not use circular strokes, and do not use any cleaning solvents.

Nintendo also makes a lens cleaner tool. The lens cleaner is inserted into the console drive and cleans the disc reader lens. It is available through Nintendo's website.

Keep the console clean and dust free. Use a duster or a vacuum to keep dust out of the vents, and clean the exterior of the Wii console with a clean cloth dampened with window cleaner. Make sure that the Wii console is ventilated properly and that the vents are not obstructed.

PORTABLE DVD PLAYER NOT SPINNING DISCS AND SAYING NO DISC


When it is region lock it will say it on the display, if the player is not reading any disk, it is more likely a lens problem, see below:

Try first using a lens cleaner disk, like the ones here.

If that does not work, the unit must be disassembled, and lense cleaned with q tips and isopropyl alcohol or cleaning solution. See below:

My ps2 wont read the disk. says there is no data. help


it's your laser with something like dust keeping it from reading the discs. Just get a simple CD cleaner kit, one that has the little brush on it and then of course put some solution on it. Rubbing alchol will due. This happens to everyone eventually.

Should do the trick.

If it doesn't do it after playing the cleaning disk three times for around 10 secs each, then you may want to open it up and put clean the laser lens directly with a rubbing alchol soaked que tip and a dry one. For more instructions on how to open it do a search on fixya and there is one guru who goes into great detail about this.

DVD problem


Hello Everyone,
All you have are common problems anywhere. Make sure DVD discs are not pirated or not digitally copied. Most players like DVDs are quite sensitive. Most likely, laser lens are dirty or covered with dust. The best way to eliminate the problem is to clean your lens by using disc cleaner available in the market somehow. Drop a small amount of solution on the little brush adhered at the disc itself, load the disc into the tray, like a normal you play and push the botton PLAY , Some cleaner has an audio or video , so that you will be know the operation or further instructions.
Hope this will help solve the problem... Good luck.

REgrds,
Eriez

No Disc


If you sure that the system supports the disc's format.. and it wont play other discs... try to clean the CD lens. CD lens cleaning discs: Every CD, stereo equipment, department, discount, store - and even sidewalk venders - carries CD lens cleaning discs. Are they of any value? Can they cause damage? I generally don't consider CD lens cleaning discs to be of much value for preventive maintenance since they may just move the crud around. However, for pure non-greasy dust (no tobacco smoke and no cooking grease), they may not hurt and could even do a good enough job to put off a proper cleaning for a while longer. However, it's also possible they will ruin the lens. Consider that the worst thing to do to a precision optical surface is to wipe it with a dry cloth as this is likely to scratch the surface as it rubs the dust over it. To the lens, a speck of dust is like a boulder. Once the lens is scratched, replacement of the entire optical pickup is the only remedy. And, since there are absolutely no sorts of standards for these things, it is possible for a really poorly designed cleaning disc to damage the lens even if the dust itself is non-abrasive. In addition, if the cleaning disc doesn't look like a CD to the optical pickup or disc-in sensor, the lens it may not even spin. So, the drawer closes, the drawer opens, and NOTHING has been accomplished! (But at least no damage will be done.) As if this isn't enough, NEVER put one into a high-X CDROM (DVD player or DVDROM drive). The high speed rotation may cause the cleaning disc and/or player/drive to self destruct. And, don't try a cleaning disc on an automotive CD player that sucks in the disk - it will get stuck.

Won't play discs. Instead conitnuously rotates showing 20 segments per disc, no matter what.


Yanaha has had lots of bad laser pickups the past several years. It has to focus before it will spin. Sometimes they will focus and spin but still not read the disc. mybe you can try to clean the lens...
