HELLO

The reason why the DVD section is not playing DVD's (but still plays CD's) is that the laser has gone defective. The laser in a DVD machine has two lasers within it and the one that reads DVD's has gone!

Looks as if a new laser is on the cards!

Reads cds but does not read dvds


There is hope to recover from semiconductor problems such as condesation or overheating. You have to play cd as long as possible, let the unit cool down. Then try dvd again. If works, keep standby power on, forever, to keep moisture out of your dvd/vcr combo.

Some blank DVD+R discs will not read on my DVD player


The JVC DR-MV1S DVD Recorder / VCR Combo does not suppport DVD+R, only DVD-R, -RW etc.
At least mine only supports these formats, as when I first bought mine, I got some blank DVD's they were DVD+R.
I recorded a movie onto one on my PC, then tried playing it in the JVC unit... no go!
Instruction manual (available for D/load online) proved to me that I could not play +R disks!!

Check the link below to see how to clean the laser on a DVD player. If cleaning does no work, then the player will need servicing.

Daewoo DV-6T955B DVD Player Problem


If your DVD is less than a year old, still under manufacturers warranty.
The problem you have "no Disk" is because the laser is not reading the DVDs.

Insignia DVD/Cassette combo player


I imagine you have checked the disk for scratches top and bottom, if so you can purchase a cd/dvd lens cleaner cdrom as the laser may need realigning and cleaning.

Samsung DVD-4600 DVD/VCR Player


My Smasung DVD/VCR Combo stopped reading DVDs because of a dirty read head. It started by only playing disks sometimes, and progressed to never playing disks. I assumed it was a dirty laser lens so I bought a lens cleaner set. Unfortunately my player wouldn't play the cleaner disk.

So I took it apart and cleaned the laser lens manually with some isopropyl alcohol (the clenser that came with my cleaning disk), and a lens cloth (that came with my glasses). Just open the case (starting with the screws in the back) and remove the snap in cross panel that obscures the lens of the DVD portion. Put a drop of cleanser on the lens and gently wipe it with the cloth.

Oh and by the way, I take no responsibility if you break your own player while following my instructions. My own DVD player was far out of warranty at the time I cracked it open.
