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.

I keep getting no disc staus when inserting the sony dvd-rw


Hi,
Some DVD players wont read the copied DVDs and
then it show no disc..additionally if recorded disc has not been finalized wherever recorded,other players can not read it..To make sure if it is properly recorded you can try to run them on your laptop...to verify that it works..

However if this is not the case ,I recommend to buy a "wet DVD/CD laser cleaner " from any store.it is available even in Walmart..And clean the laser eye at least twice..
YOUR DVD itself should be clean and finger prints free as well...

Hope this helps! Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me

Have a philips pet800 portable dvd player which won,t read dvd discs.the display shows the dvd loading then after a minute it stops and displays that there is no disc


The problem is the lens of your dvd. You will see the optical lens when you open the the dvd and put the disc. Cleaning the lens of the dvd, you must be very careful, never touch the lens with your hand,Use a cotton buds to wipe the the lens gently.

When I put in a disc the recorder says no disc.


No disc error can be a DIY like the following steps.

Assuming that the disc is good.


1.Cleaning the lens. - Sometimes because of dust the lens can't read any disc.

Try clean the lens by soft cotton buds. Be careful while doing this.

2.Replacing the ribbon - Check the ribbon connected to the lens from the main board for scratch, damage. Once it has an open line then of course the lens can't read the disc. Also try to erase the contact by pencil eraser.

If you've done the steps above and the symptoms still there then the next step requires you a little knowledge in soldering technique and reading the ohmmeter.

3.Checked the motor - Check the motor that spin the disc with an ohmmeter. You can test it using the ohmmeter (x1) even it is connected on the lens assembly.

Good motor - reading should be fairly high and it will spin.

Bad motor - reading will drop to low resistance and will not spin.

Hint : 50% of my repaired unit the above parts are commonly caused of the problem.

If you confirmed that you have a defective motor then replace it with a new one. Before replacing the new motor you have to check the clearance of the disc holder with the old one. The clearance should be the same as the old because if not the lens will not read the disc if it is too far or too close.

If you already cleaned the lens, and confirmed that the ribbon is good as well as the motor then I've advice you to send it to repair shop because the next step should be done with an expert because it is quite technical diagnosing the fault between the pick-up lens and the main board.

Thanks for using fixya.

Samsung DVD player when disc put in after trying to load it comes up with a message disc error on all discs


it can be two possibilities. 1)either the disk is faulty.check out in another player or drive and confirm whether the disk is properly working. 2)or the lens in the drive which reads the disk is either faulty or got dusty.in the electronics shop you get lens cleaning cd.insert that in your drive and play it.it will spin for a period of time and stop.then insert your dvd disk and check out if the same problem.then drive inner lens is faulty and needs replacement.

"unknown disc, please, check disc again


this happens all the time on my dvd player. im just about ready to throw it out the window. ive only had it awhile.
i called customer service. they said you need a dvd cleaner to clean the lens. I bought one called dvd dr laser lens cleaner. unfortunately, it rejected that disc as well. you could try it i guess, but good luck. tell me what happens. in the meantime, i'm going to put this piece of garbage up on ebay or throw it out my window. total waste of 300 something dollars. buy the warranty! i didn't and im paying through the nose.
i payed $80 for a new laser about 2 years ago, it did JACK. so, dont do that either. sorry to sound so aggravated, but i have been working on this for a few hours now. i opened it up and tried to look at the lens. looks fine. good luck.
