Have you tried using a cleaning disk? Also, have you tried plugging it out for about 30 minutes and then plugging it back in? Does this happen on all DVDs - ones you bought at the store and ones you burned? How about blank DVDs? If both of my previous solutions don't work, and you're comfortable opening up the case, you can try cleaning the inside of the case and cleaning the lens of the disk drive with rubbing alcohol and a Q-tip. If that doesn't work then you'll have to replace the drive inside the recorder. If you're not comfortable opening the case you should have it serviced, and if it's under warranty, you should of course go down that route and not open it up at all.

Machine doesn't read read games or movies kepts telling us to open disc. or disc is not readable

This can be caused by dirt on the laser lens, or a posible malfunction of it. CD/DVD lenses tend to loose power over time, when that happens, they cant read the discs anymore and you have to get them replaced.
But before you go that way, try cleaning the DVD drive with a disc cleaner, if problem persists, try to purchase a new, and compatible, dvd drive and change it yourself if you can, or take it to repair.

My PS3 will not read any discs once they are inserted. Why and is there a simple fix. Everything else works. Just cant read games or data discs

This can be caused by a dirty laser in the drive. Try cleaning the laser with a q-tip and alcohol. If this does not fix the problem, the laser needs to be replaced. Contact Sony and see if the unit is still under warranty.

Put disk in MESSEGE SAYS can't reconize disc.

First try the simple things....put a cleaning disc in it and try to clean the laser. If its too dirty to read the cleaning disc then you need to take it apart and manually clean the lens with a Q-tip and some windex (because alcohol will actually streak on the lens windex won't) if you still cant get it to read the discs then you may need a new laser.

I put in a disc and its like theresw no disc in there

wel first you should try cleaning the lens or the eye that reads the disc becouse if that has dust or anything on it it will find it really hard to read a disc with little or no scratches on it,once you've try'd this,wipe the disc a cloth or piece of tissue,if you are still having the same problem well then i recommend that you do ring microsoft and see what they can do
hope this helps GD.

Cant read disc

Try checking the scan and pickup heads of the DVD with a DVD cleaning disk . If this does not help the optics or the decoder/encoder might be defective. In that case, you will need a qualified TV repair person to work on these units for you all.

I hope this helps

Thank you,

My nintendo wii wont load discs??

Here's a page on the official Nintendo site that might help.

"Unable to read the disc" / "Disc could not be read" If you are getting one of the above error messages:
  • Ensure that you are properly loading a Game Disc. insertdisccorrect.gif
    • If your console is placed vertically, the disc label will face to the right.
    • If your console is placed horizontally, the disc label will face upwards

  • If you know you are inserting the Game Disc correctly, but are still have the same problem with only one game (or if you only have one game), try cleaning the Game Disc by following the disc cleaning procedures (click here).
  • If after reading the above information you are still unable to play a game disc, please call 1-800-255-3700 to discuss available options.
