hi, if your dvd player is giving you disk error message or no disk message then the chances are the laser lense needs cleaning.
What you need to do is go to any big computer store and purchase a dvd lense cleaning disk, dont buy the cheapest one as they tend not to work so go for mid range or top end one. Then all you need to do is put this disk into your dvd player and it will then clean the lense for you and should solve your problem.
If how ever you still have the problem then try different disk in it to ensure the dvd your trying is working ok if after doing this you still have the problem then the chances are the laser unit itself is no good and needs replacing. The problem with this is unless your dvd player is built into the telly then the chances are it would be cheaper to go out and buy a new dvd player as the cost of repair would more than likely cost more than the cost of a new dvd player
How old is the system? DO CDs work when you try them? Put a disk in... remembering the position it was in.. Then try to play the disk... Eject if it does not play and look to see if it has moved to a different position... If not, there is a motor problem or the laser is not sensing the disk being there.
Have you ever opened up the main box of the system? Has anyone else been inside it?
If yes, then maybe it is time to do it again to observe if there is movement of the laser pickup..
PAL is the format of the dvd and there are two main formats for a dvd and they are PAL or NTSC. The NTSC format is mostly used for the United States, and the PAL format is used more in Europe and Asia. An older dvd player will have the format options in the setup menu for the dvd player, and from the setup menu on the tv screen the dvd player can be set to play the PAL dvd's. However if that is not the problem and the dvd player no longer can tell a PAL from a NTSC format then the dvd player either needs a serious lens cleaning or it has a malfunction. Also, the back of the cover for the dvd should say if it is PAL or NTSC.
No Disk issues on device players like DVDs are caused by the following problems
Dirty Play Heads (Optical lens)
Bad CDs or scratched CDs on the surface
Non Compatible CD formats such as DVDs that are designed for some geographical regions and play formats
Also low electrical current is a major problem too
Your issue could reside amongst any of these problems
Check your DVD compactible play formats if its compactible with the CD you want to play.
If its compactible, then I suggest you get a CD Cleaner to clean to clean to Lens.
Also check your current output and if low, get a voltage stabilizer
Check the surface of the CD if its scratched and get a replacement.
i think i can help you out, i had the same problem with a playstation and a dvd player. buy some of that aerosol spray for electronics and spray it out really well and insert a disc and see if it does not help. it did me, i had to spray then disc would work, i repeated this step for the next few times before i played anything in the machine and now it is fine. give it a try if you haven't already, let me know and if this dont work then chances are the eye or the track for the dvd player are no longer in time. it also could be the type of cd you are trying to play also, this only applies if you are trying to use a burned cd, if not burned properly then the player may not accept the way you burned it. here are a few ideas for you let me know what the outcome is. thank you
I have this problem.. I put in a DVD that I know it has read ok before. But, now it takes a long time trying to load and then it just stops trying and returns 'NO DISK" So, I opened it up and watched it try to load. The motor on the DVD drive was struggling and couldnt keep the disk spinning a the correct speeds. Now, I am looking for a drive replacement. I hope this helps.
I think the first step could be to find out between the DVD player and the disc which one has a problem.If the DVD Player is able to play other discs then it is possible the problem is with the disc only. If that disc can be played quite alright in other DVD players then the problem is with your DVD Player. I suggest you trial that first. I think the indication of " No disc insert disc" could be that your DVD Player is failing to load or read the disc either because the disc has some scratches or because your DVD Player lens are not powerful enough.
