DVD Player Problems

The DVD has recently been giving an error disc or no disc on all DVD's I try to use. Now it is making an awful noise like its about to take off when it tries to read the disc but then it errors. We've only had the Akai a yr, is it already going bad?

    I'm also experiencing the err disc reading on previously viewed discs and discs that play fine on another Akai unit. Any solutions out there excepting that it is not a well built unit?

YES-- Not a well built TV in my opinion! And the cheap DVD play table and pick-up assemblies are of no better quality that Colby..

"no disc" error message

Did this problem just start? It may be due to the lens no longer reading the disc. Try a lens cleaner. If your lens went south, it usually is paired with a clicking noise or/and the combination of a no disc/disc error message. I would also recommend staying away from Polaroid dvd players and tv's in the future. They have a habit of not making parts available, especially after the warranty.

My blue ray player wont read any discs

that means that your laser is broke they probably made a coding error on the program when they made that one and the awful sound your hearing is the little motor that makes the laser go back and forward there is probably a gear broke in it also.

Aiwa xd-dv370 doesn´t play lens cleaner disc

The lense of the player may have gone week, since you have been using it for a long time. Replacing lense will be a solution to this.

"wrong disc" message

Since the device is new, I suggest that you take it back to the shop, ask for a replacement and check it while in the shop to make sure its working. This is assuming that you made sure that you're trying to play the correct format discs. Consult the manual on which format DVD's it can support. Its multi-region so that can't be the problem, but its possible that you're trying to play other unsupported formats. Try also playing other discs - audio discs, DVDs, DIVX etc... make sure the disc isn't scratched badly. But the bottom line is you shouldnt have problems on the first day, take it back. Good luck!
