Go video DV2150

When insert DVD to play, whirrs a bit and comes up with bad disc.

We had someone staying here who may have tried to play a Taiwanese dvd disk - would this affect it?

Have tried resetting defaults with no result.

Any ideas?
/Thanks, Caroline

    Suddenly won't play any DVD. VCR works perfectly. DVD shows "loading" and I can hear the usual loading sound, but no disk actually loads, and sometimes a "bad disk" message appears. Tried resetting to default settings, but nothing changed.

    Won't play any DVD. VCR works fine. When DVD is inserted, the loading message appears, along with the usual loading sounds, but the disk never load and some times a "bad disk" message appears. Tried resetting to default settings, but that doesn't work.

'bad disc' error message comes up every time I

Your optical pickup drive lens is dirty or needs to be replaced.  Run a DVD disc cleaning kit through it and see if that helps.  If not, then you have to open this thing up and clean the lens with a bit of rubbing alcohol and then try.  If that don't work you can either kick it to the curb or replace the optical lens.

HP dvd play on my laptop malfunctioning

grinding sounds is from the dvd drive itself. Sounds like its not sitting properly in the drive or the holder that it sits in is going bad. Either way replace the drive and that will take care of the grinding sounds. Also the more grinding sounds that happen, the more of a chance you take on your dvds getting scratches on them and going bad eventually.

No matter what disc I put in it wont play and Bad Disc comes up on t.v. I know the movie discs are good ones.

Hello marciafoxmar,

If you know for a fact that the discs you are putting in, then there is obviously something wrong with the DVD player. When you put a DVD in your player, can you hear it spinning the disc at all? If your DVD is not even spinning the disk, I'm afraid your DVD player might be toast. If it does spin your discs, try a lens cleaning disc (available at pretty much any home electronics store or large chain store that sells home electronics). If that does not help, let us know and also let us know if you would be comfortable opening your DVD player.

Go video DV2150 not working

Try using a lens cleaner. It could be that the lens is just dirty. If that doesn't work, it could indicate a problem with the optical assembly, which may result in expensive repairs.

Try the leans cleaning first. Kits are available in most stores. Should that not work, then shop around for rates from various repair shops, and if the cost doesn't warrant it, best go in for a new unit..

Keeps flashing "Bad disc".....

Try playing a CD instead of a DVD, if the audio CD plays normally that means that the laser on the DVD side is defective. This devices come with 2 laser picks, one for CD and the other one for DVDs.

"Bad disc" message

You can buy a CD/DVD player cleaner, which is basically a set of brushes attached to a CD. This will gently brush the CD/DVD laser and hopefully that will restore your player to full working order.
