Try and get a Lens Cleaning disc and put it into the DVD Player side and wait until it's done.

CD disk is plays, but DVD disk in no playing,,sometimes dvd plays,mostly no disk

try cleaning the laser lense
If you have a dirty lense it can still read cd because data is not as compressed on dvd, each byte of data takes up far less space on a dvd so the dirty lense might not pick it up whereas it might pick it up on a dvd

My ps2 won't play DVD please help me

Playing DVDs on a PS2 is a hit-and-miss venture. Sometimes they play well, but many times they won't. Very unreliable. Not much you can really do about it, either.

I have a Panasonic DMR-ES30V. I've only ever recorded from what I'm watching on the TV to a DVD. I now have a VHS tape that I'd like to record to DVD. I tried starting the dvd to record...

Most Combo Recorders (VHS and DVD) will prevent you from
recording a Copyrighted VHS tape program onto DVD.
Try recording a TV program onto your VHS tape, then
transfer it to your DVD and see if your new DVD recording
will work or not.

I had the dvd player/radio /cd player replaced in my 2007 Yukon, the cd player would not read discs, the dealership ordered a new radio & now the dvd player reads disc region error & will not play...

If your using copies then some dvds wont read them even if the old one did, sometimes its a gamble if it reads or not, if your using a master then i would have them check it out, it may be bad or need programing, it funny because sometimes it will play a copy and sometimes not, thats what i've run into. hope this helps.
