Try to make sure that all the cables are plugged in the TV and the DVD. Also make sure that the CD is not dirty or damaged.
For support to the MIntek MPD-1070 i suggest you to go to Best Buy, they will fix it for you for a good price and it will work.
Hope this helped you.

What is the most likely cause of a "NO DISK" error with the Onkyo DX-C390 6-Disk changer? Would it be the laser pickup assembly?

Could be dirty laser lens, dying laser, faulty component,
Due to the complexity of multi-disk changers, it may be best to have the device looked at.
You can try running a cleaning disk through it first, but from your post, it sounds like this unit may have multiple problems and need tested by a physical person.

Panasonic sa-ch64 cd is choosing the wrong cd

I looked at the users manual. I'm assuming single play slot zero is empty, if not unload it. Do you have your manual, if not, google your model number and select the search result '', it can be found there. Recheck how your discs are programmed to play, sequential, block, etc. What you're seeing could be normal for how the unit is programmed. The disc was seen as being played, even when powered down, so the unit automatically selects the next disc. Some players attempt to read every slot , empty or not. Again, this may be programming. If a disc was loaded into the laser play position, was another disc placed in that tray position? Your unit has a wide range of programming/ listening functions, over time is could accidentally be programmed to other than what you are used to. Last resort is profession service. Good luck.

Hi i have a bose 321 and when trying to play a movie i get an error message that says cannot read disc. How do i fix?

Your unit has developed a drive problem in most cases. This means either the disc motor or the laser unit is nonfunctional or out of alignment. Not for the faint of heart.

Question: Can you feel or hear the drive motor running during "load" or hear a shuffling or clocking noise? That latter would indicate that the laser is at least looking or the disc.

Question: Will the unit play a CD or accept a cleaning disc? If so, it is generally an alignment problem.

Good luck.

My ps3 will not play discs. and when it does it only plays them for a certain amount of time and then it just stops and the only thing that works is the ps button but if you quit game or turn off the...

Your PlayStation 3 most likely needs a new laser. Over time dust can collect in and around the console and can cause the laser to become dirty and scratched. Contact Sony to see if your unit is still under warranty.

If your unit is not under warranty, then go to We are a video game console repair company and we can get you back up and running again. All of our repairs come with a 90 day warranty that covers everything on the console, not just what we repaired. If you have any other questions or concerns feel free to email us at or call toll free at 888-389-3038.

CD playing erratic

Run a "Laser Lens Cleaner" thru the unit a couple times. Use one that takes fluid, you can find them at just about any retail store for 15-20. If that doesn't solve it, it needs to be repaired. At that point weigh the cost over replacement. A new transport usually will cost 100-150 on average for parts and labor. Hope this helps

To open the drawer, unplug the unit while the power is on (so that the drawer doesn't try to open on its own). Keeping the unit flat on a table, look underneath and find the small hole where you can turn the loading gear. Rotate it until the unit opens, using a standard flat screwdriver. The loading gear is a white plastic part with a slot in it. You should be able to see it rotate if you move the drawer by hand.

After manually removing the disc, turn the gear with your screwdriver until the drawer is all the way in, The gear should be able to be turned for three or four more turns when the drawer stops loading. If it doesn't, turn it a bit further unit it "pops" past one more gear notch. It should then turn freely for a few more turns, at this point you should stop. Do not force it once it stops the second time. This is the "Disc Loaded" position.

Power the unit back up and see if it loads a disc and plays correctly.

Disc drawer will not open

Try to hear a sound of of a running motor inside the unit. If you can hear it, the there's a broken or misplaced rubber belt. The belt drives the drawer open.
