    My DVD does not recognize the disk, it keeps loading and after a while says there is no disk. I read another comment who suggest to change the lens. How do I change the lens and where to buy it.

Won't play dvds


The DVD play part has probably had it. Try putting in a CD cleaner disc (a special CD with nylon brushes on it) if you want to spend time on it, this can fix some dirt on lens problems. I would just go and but the cheapest supermarket DVD player to replace it, why the cheapest? because DVD/CD players never last very long before they fail like this.

Hello, welcome to Fixya!

Was this player playing previously? And how long have you been using this player? I suspect the lens of the player. Once the lens of the player becomes weak, it won't play discs any longer.

The first thing my mind goes to, is the lens. The lens id responsible for reading/loading data on discs. So if the lens is unable to read the disc, there is no way the player is going to play the disc.

To confirm if actually its a laser problem, insert an Audio CD into the player and see if will play. If it plays, then obviously, your laser (lens) is weak. But if it doesn't play Audio CD, then it might still be the laser (lens) or probably, a mechanism problem.

Get a lens cleaner, use it to clean the lens. If that doesn't solve the problem, get a screw driver, open the player's cover so that you can gain access to the lens, use a cotton board to clean the surface of the lens. This should clean dust or dirt that might be on the lens.

If non of the above solves the problem, then know that you need to replace the laser to a brand new one.

To replace the lens, remove the bad laser, use it as a sample to get exactly the same type and do the replacement. Note that replacing a laser (lens) needs a professional touch, so if you cannot replace the laser, get it to a repairman to fix it for you.

Once this us done, your player will play all DVD discs again.

Good luck.

Cd keeps jumping and then stops playing. Fine on different player


Hello,

how long have you been using this player? The problem should be from the lens (laser).

The lens is weak and that's why it cannot read/load Cd's. The weak lens is also what's making it jump.

Get a lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens, but if the lens still does the same thing even after using the lens cleaner, then it means you would have to change the whole lens completely to a brand new one.

By so doing your player would play all Cd's with no problem at all.

Good luck.

Dvd player has stopped playing dvds


Hello, I'm here to try and help you with your DVD player, it sounds like to me the laser is either out of adjustment, or even gone bad, try playing a music cd first, if the cd loads and plays then your laser is out of adjustment or going bad. There isn't a whole lot you can do with it if this is the case. Some manufactors have a certain group or sequeince of buttons you can push to reset the player. Try looking in the owners manual or calling the manufactor for reset directons, if there is none than, it's time to go buy another DVD player. Thanks for contacting us and hope you have a pleasent day.

Screen displays "Error data" when trying to play a DVD


My understanding is that the DVD player uses a different lens to the CD player. So the DVD lens might need cleaning. A CD lens cleaner would not correct the DVD side.
