What dvd laser lens cleaner should I use for my Samsung p241 dvd/cd player?

You can use any branded DVD-lens cleaner. I recommend Sony. It is just like a normal DVD except that brushes will pop out to clean the lens when you play it. After the cleaning is complete the sample video file on the DVD will be played indicating that it has been cleaned. Otherwise clean again.

Discs will not play. After loading for about 1 minute no disc note comes up. Discs have been cleaned and neither dvds or neo discs play.


The reason the player wont play the disc is either because the lens is weak or dirty.

Try to clean the lens with a lens cleaner and test with a DVD disc.

If it does not work, then it means the lens is weak and needs replacement.

To replace the lens, open the player with the appropriate screwdriver, open the disc tray, and replace the lens with a new lens, test it with a DVD disc.

Take care.

DVD's will not fully load. I suspect that laser does not move radially.


I quite agree with you. But to be very sure, play also with Video CD and Audio CD plates respectively. These two show play properly.

Once a DVD player lens is getting weak, it would start selecting DVD plates, but would play Video CD and Audio CD well. And if the lens gets weaker, it might not play Video CD's properly.

You could use a cotton board to clean the lens of the DVD player, and see if it would improve while loading DVD plates.

Take care.

This is due to faulty DVD lens/head. Try cleaning it with DVD/CD lens cleaning CD.If still the problem persists, contact near by service center for replacing the faulty Lens.

How do you use the combo I tried but I did it wrong it says wrong dvd and it is a rewritable one Thamks

The Go Video VR 4940 can only record to DVD -R and DVD -RW discs. It cannot record to +R or +RW discs. It can play back many types of discs, but can only record to the -R and -RW ones.

Proscan dvd player

the manual may be available in some of these following website....

just open your dvd player with the door ejected and then just clean the dust particles and obstacles in the door way and especially clean the lens... use only dry clothes for cleaning ... after that just give a try..

if problem persists or if you are afraid of opening it or if you dont have any idea about it then contact the near by technician and tell your problem...
he will clean the lens with the white petrol or spirit...
then your problem will be solved ...
he will not charge much for cleaning lens he may charge 100 bugs or 150 bugs that s all ...
and if there is any other problem just like the lens is out something like that he may charge more...

Dvd "unknown disc" message coming up

Have you tryed to use a lens cleaning disc yet. The laser lens on these players and recorders alike, must have the lens cleaned every oince in awhile. If that does not help, most likly you have a bad laser pickup assembly and you will need to replace the plaer as to have that repaiered, you could buy a new unit. Good Luck
