    Same problem ..started occuring spasmodically; dvd head cleaner appeared to work for awhile; some CD discs worked once then not on immediate replay; now appears both CD & DVD's are not being recognized. Machine 3 1/2 years old, but not been used all that much, especially not with DVD's. It appears these company's are having a lend of us..what happened to buying a product and having it last for years and years? So, what's the next step to getting the bleep bleep thing to work?

There are several causes for this problem.

1) Faulty DVD drive. Most drives have a dual laser, one for CD, and one for DVD. Check the player with both CD, and DVD. If it reads one and not the other, then it is most certainly a faulty laser. The laser assembly or whole mechanism will need changing.

2) Dirty or dusty lens. If the unit is kept in a dust environment, dust and dirt can be drawn into the machine by the fan. Try using a DVD lens cleaner. If this doesn't work try a CD lens cleaner. (Dual laser - see 1))

3) Condensation. Condensation can build up on the laser lens if the unit is kept in a humid environment. Also, this can be caused by a cold environment. In this case, condensation forms as the unit warms up. In either case, leave the unit in a warm dry environment for an hour.

When trying to play a computer generated DVD +R DL, I get a message that says this type of disc cannont be played. please insert a different disc


The disc is probably an incompatible format for this model player. Even if the disc is finalised in your PC, or in a DVD recorder, this player may still be unable to read it. Some DVD recorder/players do not recognise DVD+R (or +R DL) media, while others won't recognise +/-RW discs (except CD-RW); this is a model limitation - not a fault with either your player, the PC burning software or the discs themselves.

Nothing can be done to fix this except purchasing a model which accepts multimedia (+R/DVD-RAM etc). The question is, does your player play ANY normal DVDs? I am guessing your player will accept DVD-R DL discs just fine since this is standard as well as proper shop-bought movies.

You possibly have outdated drivers or you need to see if there are updates at the manufactures site.
Reload the drivers.

No disc present


Try running a cleaner disc in the unit if that doesnt work try the following.

Starting at my computer... Right click on my computer icon.

Go to properties.

Then Hardware tab then go device manager. Right click on cdrom in device list. Select uninstall then reboot the computer. If this doesn't help replacing the unit will be necessary.

My tv dvd combi 21pt6820/05


These units use a belt for the loading mechanism. If the belt slips at all, the loading will not complete and lock. This will prevent the unit from reading the disc. Try loading a music CD. If hte CD plays ok, then the optics assembly is in need of at least a cleaning or replacement.
