Curtis DVD8007C says "No disc"

never heard of powered up on caps. But first try using and IRIS cleaner to remove dirt and dust from the laser eye. The disk has a brush embedded in it and is just run like a normal disk. It sweeps the dirt fromm the eye and then SHOULD be able to see it really does have a disk.

Displays "No Disc"

It can be several reasons
1. Disk is upside down
2. Lens is durty. CD/DVD cleaning disk will help
3. Disk is in different formate (for instance NTSC for US but you trying to playback disk in PAL)
4. Disk has different region code (look is the dvd player and disk have the same code, or ALL Regions code)
Good Luck

DUR 1800.

My daughter had the same problem with hers. What happens is the laser gets stuck. When you remove the DVD-I'll bet the laser is not all the way in towards the center. If you GENTLY slide the lens towards center, and it moves at all, that's the problem. The fix is to look inside the horizontial slot that the laser runs in-you will see gears-with a Q-Tip, put a drop of sewing machine oil on the gears, then rub the oiled Q-Tip where you see a rail that the gears run on. Try it out- the other fix is to check for loose plastic pieces inside the machine. Tilt it GENTLY, from side to side-if you hears something sliding around-try to get the piece out somehow-the case is not hard to open. BUT try the sewing machine oil fix first. Also this machine does not like some DL (Duel Layer) disks-not all but just some-I haven't found a fix for that yet-but still looking.

Recording Error "Can not record on this disk/E4 54037380

I had that exact same problem. I would record a bunch of dvds with no problems for months and then some and one day it doesn't work. Only this showed up E4 EA03738B. However I've found the solution. Instead of going out and returning the recorder or buying new dvds just purchase a Laser Lense Cleaner. It's a dvd cleaner. Works like a charm.

Most DVD players that would display such a message even with a known good disc inside signifies that the that the laser eye/lens is not reading the disc. This could probably be attributed to:
1. dirty, damaged, inverted, blank, un-finalized burned CDs or DVDs;
2. defective, weak burned-out laser eye/lens;
3. defective slider shafting (where the laser eye's carriage moves.

A few things you can try:
1. Use a CD cleaner (readily available from most computer shops);
2. use a can of compressed air and blow through the inside of the loaded disc area;
3. gently tap on the top cover where you estimate the reading/laser eye/lens would be;
4. gently press on the tray door once the disc is loaded.

Should this not be corrective, perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional such as those in a Service Center. Alternately, your friendly neighborhood electronic shop should do just fine.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kindest regards.

Samsung dvd-v4600

Wish I could. I have the 4600 combo and the VCR works fine. The DVD stopped working many months ago and just yesterday started working fine again. Worked fine for two days and then stopped, picture froze, and all I got out of it, is the picture is loading. Wont give me back my DVD nohow, so have opened the case and stole it back. Tray will not open at all. Trying some repairs, will holler if succesful
