My Insignia DVD/VCR Combo won't read DVD's

The Unit is just over a year old, past warranty. When I put in a DVD it says "Unknown Disk, please check disk". I've tried a lens cleaner but the problem persists.

    I have the same machine with the same problem. It randomly will not load and play DVD's. It loads some and won't others. Sometimes it will not load a DVD 6 times and then will work on try 7. The age or condition of the disk does not seem to matter. All I have tried is cleaning the disks. It currently loads about 40% of the time

Wont read discs


follow this steps, and use the common sense.God bless you
If the player skips, make sure that the DVD disc is not dirty or scratched..Use the cleaner disk buy it from R. Shack.
If the tray won't open or close properly, check the belt for dirt or wear. Then check the tray for misalignment. If needed, remove, clean, lubricate, and reinstall the tray following the instructions in the owner's manual.

I cannot get my Insignia combo player to play some pre-recorded DVDs. It says ''Unknown Disk''. I have tried to clean the DVD and have played it on this unit before. Rick in Chattanooga


You may need to have you unit checked out for aging of the laser, or some weakening of the units drive circuits. You can call Insignia Technical Support at this number : 1-877-467-4289. You can also try cleaning the laser head with Isopropyl alcohol and a cotton swab. Gently try cleaning the laser by rubbing the cotton swab with very little alcohol until the head seems clean and shines. Do not use too much pressure or you may damage the alignment of the laser. Also used a can of compressed air to blow clean any excess dust and debris in the drive carriage. Hope this helps you with your problem.

LG RC797T Won't read disks


I had this problem last year. It had to be sent back to the company to replace the entire dvd unit; however, I found that it probably had been caused by electrical surges. Once I got it back after repair (replacement) I put the best possible surge protector I could buy on it and have not had a problem with that issue again. The idea of a surge problem came about because I blew 3 Onkyo stereos while still in warranty several years ago and they did the same thing- would not read discs, would say no disc, etc. & the protector ended the problem.

I imagine you have checked the disk for scratches top and bottom, if so you can purchase a cd/dvd lens cleaner cdrom as the laser may need realigning and cleaning.
