Does this happen with more than one disc? This seems to be a common problem with this unit. Have you tried contacting the company?

Recently, my Curtis 1053 DVD player has stopped playing DVDs. It attempts to load them, and then says "Bad Disk". I know that the disks are not bad, because they play fine on other DVD players. I...


Over time dust and stuff can accumulate on the lasers that read the discs. You should try a dvd laser cleaner (its different then the disc cleaner you might purchase for a cd player). Its a disc that has a little brush on it. You insert it into the DVD player, you may need to run it 2 or 3 times, but when you use it, the little brush will clean the laser off. Another problem could be that sometimes the laser becomes mis-aligned, inhibiting the DVD players ability to read the discs. I would try the laser cleaner first as the only way to get the laser re-aligned is to take it to a service center and get it repaired. Our old PS2 stopped reading discs and my husband actually took the lid off of it and used a q-tip with some of the laser cleaner that comes with the dvd laser cleaner kit to clean the laser off - we're smokers and pet owners and it was just plain disgusting how dirty that little laser got! After that it ran fine and read all the discs that we thought had some how gone bad.

There are other possiblities too such as a bad laser motor, bad spindle motor (although I think this one is unlikely since you can hear it spinning) and other circuit related issues that can be causing your bad disc error. However these things would need to be diagnosed by an authorized service center.

I would say that as a general rule of thumb, if the cost of repairing exceeds 2/3 of the cost of a new unit, I would just buy a new one.

My niece's dvd player is having a no disc error. I can't even get a lens cleaner dvd to work.


Hello, Thanks for the opportunity to help.

When you said disc cleaner did not work what comes in our minds is a bad laser, or laser pico fuse went out on it.

Regularly people would just purchase a new unit at this point. No disc could also mean the unit is not spinning the disc fast enough to be able to be read.

If there is a warren ty on it witch I doubt you might want to have it honored as the last step.

1. Check and see if the disc is spinning (if not its the motor)

There are not many parts for this unit as disney contracted out there manufacturing to some knuckle head in china. Parts will not be abundant here.

If the lens cleaner did not work chances are the unit is past its prime.

Thanks for using fixya.com

Does not read disc bad disc error


Hi there,
if your player does that with every disc then there's something wrong with its motherboard. Try cleaning it with a CD cleaner which you can purchase at the store. let me know if this works.

Bad disc, lens cleaner doesn't work


Even tho it came up as a bad disk the brushes would have cleaned your lens as it tried to play the disc. If theres no improvement after using the cleaner you may need to take the unit to an engineer. Is it reporting every disk as bad or just a few??
