DVD home theater system

Phillips HTS3400 - Insert disc and it reads 'no disc'. Have used cleaner per Phillips. Pushing play doesn't do anything, still reads no disc. Any help?

    The can of air followed by the disc cleaner did restore the DVD's capabilities! yeah, but the tv screen now says 'no sync detected.' It's wired correctly and on the correct source. The blue screen actually went out when I followed the manuals instructions of pressing open/close on the DVD player and #1 on the remote. Poof the blue screen was gone and the same procedure does not bring it back. Phillips doesn't have a clue. Any solutions? Am referring "FixYa" to all my friends.

Disc is either to scratched or may have a hairline crack on disc. If this happens to all of your disc's, then you have a laser read problem. This can be caused by high humidity as well as dust and debri. Try blowing the unit out with canned air.

My blu ray drive keeps ejecting all discs without reading them


How long have you had the device and DID you keep it clean every ten hours of playing time? If that answer is NO, then you're going to have to replace the drive.

Cannot read any DVD/CD


hi welcome to fixya
here is my solution for that problem, first lets verify to narrow down where the main cause it could be. lets use first a dvd cleaner, dust can cause the optic lens not to read. then insert a dvd observe the light indicator ( yellow ) if blinking which mean the optic lens is starting to read the disc, if not it doesn't read. so at this time you are going to remove the cover with your dvd drive just to know and access the mechanism as will as the optic lens. now turn the power on and insert the dvd look for the optic lens if emits red light then moved going up to read the disc which mean the optic lens has supply. then check the spindle motor if rotates normally if not check the motor replace if defective. one way on how will you check the motor if defective through using a analog tester, check the resistance on the positive and negative terminal of the motor if the resistance is almost 0 ohm or shorted which mean it was worn out need to replace. hope this will help thanks for consulting through fixya.

-cd corrupted ( try clean the disc with cleaner. If you don't have it then try using perfume(with alcohol). I'm also have try many time using my BOSS perfume. Is alright.

-dvd player have problem( try clean with cd cleaner )

-disc dvd is empty (or damage). Right click to DVD ROM .Choose properties, and see what capacity for that dvd. If it have zero use and full capacity is not zero, that mean dvd disc that is still zero.

JLMS DVD-ROM XJ-HD166 DVD/CD ROM Drive does not acknowledge disc in drive after having the computer set back to factory


Does it not acknowledge dvd disc only or cd or dvd both. If it doesn't read the dvd disc, or able to play dvd disc, but able to exlpore regular cd's, then you have a codec error, and you need to download a dvd codec like powerdvd for it for your system to play dvd disc. Check to see if your dvd-rom drive appears in the "my computer" window, if it is there, but wouldn't be able to play anything, then it could be a driver issue. so make sure in the hardware , the drivers is installed and working properly. If it is working properly and driver is installed, then you got a bad drive, the optical laser lenses isnt reading or the spindle ain't working anymore if you don't hear disc being loaded when inserting the disc.

Dvd problem, cyclic redundancy check error


Most likely there is some DRM scheme that your DVD drive does not support fully. Try looking for a firmware update for your DVD drive on your computer and see if that fixes the problem.

My dvd cannot read file(saved on dvd)


Try the DVD media in a different DVD-device.
If it reads correctly, then you need to replace your DVD-device.

DVD Won't Play


You can try to uninstall the hardware, turn off the PC, and then allow Windows to find it when it reboots. Or you can try to update the drivers for it by going to the manufacturer's website. (google is your friend :D) You can also try the restore function located at: start -> all programs -> accessories -> system tools -> system restore restore it to a earlier time when it was working with no problems.
