This unit has separate optics to read audio and dvd's and unfortunately you are describing a defective pick up assy (lazer). This unit is not servicable and you cannot get parts for it because LG/Zenith has made these units exchange only. Your owners manual will give the # to call to get quotes and instructions for arranging exchange. I have found this is pretty reasonble for this service.

DVD player wont read disc.....


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 all Cd's/movies.The weak lens is what is making the player select discs, that is, not playing all discs.

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/movies with no problem at all.

Good luck.

My dvd player plays cds but wont play dvds says disc error or unknown disc


Hello,

The lens is weak and that's why it cannot read/load DVD's. The weak lens is also what's making it says "disc error" or "Unknown disc". It can still play Cd's because, Cd's does not contain large files, unlike DVD's.

Disc not being read - reading reading reading


That looks like a lens problem, when there is a fault of different kind you usually get an error message.

If you use a CD cleaner , use a good one , the $2 CD cleaners do not work, you need a kit with cleaning solution. Check here.

Run the CD cleaner a couple of times more , and see if this work.

If it does not work , the unit must be taken apart, and the lens cleaned directly with a cotton stub and cleaning solution, or isopropyl alcohol.

If the lens is defective, then the lens pick up should be replaced.

DVD display indicates "no disc"


Try a lens cleaner cd, as when the lens gets misaligned or if it's quite old, it will find it harder to read a DVD as the tracks are much closer together than that of a VCD as they are cd's and their tracks are wider apart and easier to read.
