This may sound overly simple but try disconnecting the power from the unit (i.e. unplug it from the wall), wait a few minutes and plug it back in, kinda like a hard re-boot.

I was getting the same error and I could not get regular dvd or blu ray discs to play either. I dug out my old cd player lens cleaner and put it in and it started playing. I let it clean the lens for a couple minutes and now it is playing my movies again.

Problems reading dvds


Have you tried cleaning the lens of the portable player? You can purchase a DVD cleaning disc, this disc has microfiber brushes which clean the laser len assembly of the player as the disc spins.

CD/DVD fix


If your CD or DVD player stops reading, insert a CD cleaner disk in the device & run it several times to clean the dirt off the optics. The CD cleaner disk has brushes on the data side of the disk which sweep the optics clean.

My portable dvd player will not read any dvds


  • I would give it a good cleaning with a disk player cleaning. Those disks have little bristles on them that "sweep" the lens and clean it real well. Remember that if the lens is so dirty that it won't play any DVD you may need to run that cleaner disk a few times to get the lens back to normal working condition.
  • A lens cleaner disk should be ran one time a week to avoid problems with playing disks be it CD or DVD or Computer.
  • Sometimes players go bad so keep in mind this could be the problem as well but I have had the DVD player in my garage get so dirty I had to clean it a few times to get it to work normal.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Have the Samsung DVD-AR650. When I insert a blank


My last recommendation, before seeking a replace or repair; would be to run a cleaner disk. Optical drives can be affected by dust on the optical block lens or dust on the disk itself.

It is recommended you clean your lens every 3 months in an office environment, or once a month if you use the drive in an industrial environment. They range in price from $3 to as high as $130. In such an

I have a portable dvd player model number mdp1030 the unit keeps saying no disk I have tried numerous disks same results.


then i think the lens is not able to read the disk.

and so i would suggest you to buy a disk cleaner CD and run it in your DVD player and then use your regular disks.

if this is not working then it is some internal fault in your DVD players lens.
