"No Disc" Even with a disc in the machine it says it is loading and then says there is no disc. Why isn't it registering that there is a dvd in there to be played?

"No Disc" also means "I can't read the Disc". The laser must be able to read the disc or you'll get that. There are several reasons:

Bad or noncompatible Disc: Some units won't play certain types of recorded discs. Try a rental or bought DVD.

Dirty laser lens: Either try a cleaning disc, or GENTLY clean the lens with a moistened Q-Tip.

Defective components like laser, spin motor, tracking motor, etc. Usually requires professional servicing.

Hope that helps...

My Road view in the vehicle was working fine...2 day's ago..it's saying 'bad disc' the disc's are all clean and new..I unplug it.. and still saying the same thing.


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
If your mini DVD player reads "No Disc" after you've loaded the disc, it means the machine isn't reading the DVD. Take the DVD out again and clean it. It's quite possible that the disc is simply dirty and cleaning it will solve the problem immediately.
However if the problem persist test the following:

  1. Bad connections to one or more buttons or sets of buttons.
  2. Microcontroller failed to reset properly.
  3. Missing/bad voltages from power supply.
  4. Defective microcontroller or other logic.
go to the repair shop FOR fix it.

If you try several different discs and clean them and you still receive a reading saying "No Disc," then the problem is in the laser and this will need to be fixed by a professional.
Clean a DVD disc:
  1. Hold the disc by its central hub and outside edge.
  2. Blow dust from the bottom surface with a can of compressed air.
  3. Clean dirt and fingerprints from the bottom surface with a lint-free cloth dampened with CD/DVD-cleaning fluid or denatured alcohol, wiping from the center outward.
  4. Clean the objective lens:
  5. Remove the housing and lift the hold-down clamp to expose the lens.
  6. Remove dust with canned air or soft brush. If needed, use a foam swab or a camera-lens tissue dampened with lens fluid

Dvd is stuck


Before you remove the DVD player cover, try turning the device off and then back on to see if the disc will come out after the machine has rebooted.
  • Use the opportunity while you have the outer casing off to clean the lens of your DVD player.
  • Never work on an electrical device that's still plugged in.
  • Opening a DVD player may negate the warranty. Read yours carefully before you proceed.

  • Follow these steps to remove it
    Step 1 Unplug the DVD player and take the outer casing of the DVD player off. This entails either taking out two or three screws or simply sliding one of the pieces of plastic in either direction.
  • Step 2 Locate the disc loader cover. The disc loader cover is located where the extending DVD tray finally comes to rest within the DVD player. It’s the part that holds the DVD loader in place.
  • Step 3 Bend the two tabs outward that hold the loader in place. This is a delicate procedure because you don’t want to hurt the device. The tabs are relatively easy to break since they're plastic in most cases.
  • Step 4 Slide the disc tray out. If your disc got stuck before it was read, it's probably still on this tray. If so, your problem is solved. However, if the disc was fully set and loaded, the job isn’t quite finished yet.
  • Step 5 Move the small mechanical arm that holds the disc in place over so that the disc and the reader are both exposed. Some DVD players will not have anything holding the disc in place. Instead, these devices use a system not unlike that of a common DVD case. The DVD will be locked in place in the center.
  • Step 6 Carefully lift the disc up and out of its loaded position in the DVD player. This may entail sliding the disc reading mechanism over slightly. This won't hurt the device as long as you’re careful. You should be able to access and remove the disc.

    Player won't play any disc now


    Time to look inside the dvd player. try readjusting the variable trimmer under the laser lens of the dvd player assembly. It is usually located under the lens assembly. try to adjust the lens at every 1 degree angle up to +/-5deg. sometimes it can be done. if not. time to change for new lens. damage lens is caused by using pirated DVDs or bad disc as the lens is trying to read the data on the cd.

    No Disc


    Get a new machine. Not "seeing" the disc could be bad laser, transport, electronics, on and on. Given the repair cost, a NEW one is your only practical alternative.
