    cd goes up and down all right. I tried openig the front, manually sliding laser, but no avail.not under warranty. I doubt it is worth paying for a fix. It is about 2 years old

    I did not know there is a rubberband in the mechanism

  • ffpa Apr 02, 2008

    I have the same problem... sometimes after shaking the tower a cd will play... looks like a problem with a rubberband inside???

  • Anonymous May 26, 2008

    I try to load a CD to play, and it opens, then closes repeatedly without reading the disc.
    The player seems to be stuck in the open/close mode. In the past, if I turn the player power off for more that a few seconds, and restart it will operate, but not recently.

Dvd player say no disc


Hi.

If this happens with every disk that means that either the drive unit is faulty or that there is a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will start operating on certain disks better than others.

In that case you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD/DVD will not be read, therefore the error.

Whe this problem is starting you may be able to read only few CD, DVD. After more prolonged usage , often the unit will start losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all.

If that does not work, then the drive is faulty. The most common fault is due to the laser beam not emitting on the proper frequency. The red laser light is not in the correct band and the drive does not detect that there is a disk inside.

If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens or laser problem.

Try first using a CD/DVD cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does not work you will need to disassemble the player, and clean lens directly with q tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the CD/DVD lens or the whole drive unit depending on the fault.

Regards.

My player does not read disks


When you get no disk error, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will start operating on certain disks better than others.

In that case you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD/DVD will not be read, therefore the error.

Whe this problem is starting you may be able to read only CD, DVD or Blue ray, or for example only DVD-R and not +R , or only to read and not to write and so on. After more prolonged usage , often the unit goes losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all.

If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens problem.

When your CD does not read any disk, and returns error, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, or a faulty spindle motor unit.

If it is a lens problem, then you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD/DVD will not be read, therefore the error.
