Error reading any dvd disks

Have you tried a DVD+/-RW ?

The noises that you are hearing will be the spindle motor trying to spin the DVD as the lifting presentation tray for the read/write head has not located, if the media is not spinning this will never be able to read the lead in on any DVD as it has not presented the disc in the correct place.

If is is out of guarantee then I suggest that you check to see if the DVD is spinning by removing the top cover with the power OFF then eject the tray and try to load the media a small touch of the DVD in the clockwise motion should cause the media to start spinning, this is for diagnosis only if this is the case then the spindle motor will need changing

Disc loads, makes click click sound then message no disc

that click click is the laser trying to focus and it is hitting the disc.
the biggest failure is the disc motors.they are very tiny motors and if they do not spin fast enough,the laser can not get the info it needs.
sometimes banging on it lightly while it is focusing will get the disc to spin.
with the price of new ones,it is not worth repair.
that is why i got out of the repair biz in 1995

had the same LD FVU (Load FVU or firmware disc) message and fixed it this way: download firmware from and make firmware disc and insert. After it loads and updates, you need to activate your remote again. When the message SET 1 appears, on the remote press ENTER and 1 together for 10 seconds. Done.

Error message H07

The spindle motor is defective. Open the cover and see if the disc spins when it loads. If it doesn't, give it a spin in a clockwise direction immediately after loading the disc.

Philips dvd783c wont spin.

It sounds like one of the hindge/wheels are off set. Most of the time that can also cause the lazer lense not to come up all the way in order to properly read the disc. When you keep the door open and press start does it allow the lazer lense to come up all the way? That is the small circle glass peice you will see when you look in--some you can see it some you cant.

Let me know.
