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?

Re: DVD Player Problems

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..

Daenyx TV DVD Player Error

You either have a dirty optical pickup or a bad one in the unit--it reads the disc.

They do make a cleaning disc but that is only 50-50 chance(sometimes a disc gets put in with some kind of residue on it)

If bad the built in player will cost more to fix/replace than a cheap external unit connected to rear inputs in place of it--this is the real issue with combo units--usually cheaply made etc.

I put a dvd in and it says it is loading and then it says no disc found even though it is in the dvd player. I have tried several different dvd's.

Unfortunately , Some DVD players cant read some DVD s and
then it gives either "loading" or " no disc"..reading on the display...

it generally happens when you want to play "A copied DVD/CD " taken from somewhere else..
Just to make sure that such DVD is ok ,you can try to run them on your laptop.If the disc itself has problem, laptop does not read either..
Since you h
ave not stated,if it is an old player pls Clean your DVD player's LASER lens anyway .. A clean DVD player Lens ensures that your DVD disc would be read properly. Unfortunately, your DVD player's Lens accumulate as much dust and lint as the other parts of the DVD player. There are many available DVD lens cleaner kits that you can purchase and use to clean your DVD player.

YOUR DVD disc itself should be clean and finger prints free as well....
Here are three suggested DVD Lens Cleaner that should do the job of cleaning your DVD Player's lens.
Memorex Laser Lens Cleaner for DVD - This cleaner contains six soft brushes that gently remove dust, dirt and other airborne contaminants from your DVD player's lens. (Price: $6.09)
Maxell DVD-LC DVD Lens Cleaner - This DVD Lens cleaner features the "Thunderon Brush System" and include tests for audio performance including Dolby 5.1 surround sound. It also features an interactive on-screen instructions in 8 languages including system set-up. (Price: $10.81)

Before to apply BFH method as it is final and ultimate fix for these things, unplug unit from wall socket, take off top cover of DVD-CV51and clean optical lens with good quality cotton swab gently and check DVD-CV51 as dirty/ clogged optical lens does not read one disc and player go for next disc to read it and gives up after trying all discs.
Hope this info will solve your dvd player problem.

Built-in DVD player

Are you trying to play DVD's you've made or copied yourself or new one's you buy from an actual distributor? Because sometimes self-ripped Cd's & DVD's won't play on a LOT of DVD players. Otherwise it's bad DVD player and you should go get it swapped out if it's not too late.
