I have a tascam 564 i,m unable to eject the disk from the machine it only reads disc loading


I listed a similar answer for a similar qestion. If you have a push in to load mechanism, it is probably worn out. I had similar problems and found they were impossible to correct - think of it is an out of allignment or mechanical problem.

The few places which can fix this problem were charging $60 an hour plus shipping to and from, and may not have the parts to fix it. the cheapest way to go is to eBay for another MD.

If you are buying a used deck check it out like this - Load and record a good disc. Eject it and then replay it. If the reloaded disc plays you have a good MD if not you have a bad MD recorder of some sort.

Bad decks act like they are recording but MDs are not CD recorders they use a laser and a magnetic riding skate on the other side to of the MD write to the disc. If the skate is damaged they will appear to write but when you put the disc in another recorder or reload it to your recorder they will not have anything recorded on them.

I get bothered when I see clueless ads for used MD recorders saying it plays but does not record but it is a simple fix - It is not and the unit although it will probably play well it is not cost effective to fix the record problem I mentioned.

I have put in a dvd into the slot, it will not play, the message saying self check keeps displaying


Hi

Assuming that the machine accepts the disc in and begins to spin the disc, you will hear a spinning sound, and goes no further than this point, it would suggest the optical pick up is unable to read any data on the disc or the spindle motor is unable to spin the disc to its correct velocity, it is more than likely the laser has failed, either way the machine needs to be serviced.

System unable to read disc.


Hi,
Try cleaning the lens with an approved laser lens cleaner.
Check to see if you can hear the disc being spun. If not, the spindle motor is bad.If your discs are spinning but aren't being read, your laser could be damaged. Contact Nintendo for service, unless you're comfortable replacing the laser yourself. Buy one online and get it replaced.
Thank you!

My PS3 isn't reading discs!


If it isn't even trying to spin up, than it is probably a failed drive motor, or a driver issue. If it is connected to the net, try to install the latest drivers for the disc drive. If you aren't, or that doesn't fix it, you need to take it in.

Yes, the PS3 can play PS2 games.

Sony DVD+/-RW |DW-Q30A will not record cd or dvd & only play dvds


When you get no disk error, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will start operating on certain disks better than others.

In that case you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD/DVD will not be read, therefore the error.

Whe this problem is starting you may be able to read only CD, DVD , or for example only DVD-R and not +R , or only to read and not to write and so on. After more prolonged usage , often the unit goes losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all.

If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens problem.

Try first using a CD/DVD cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does not work you will need to disassemble the drive , and clean lens directly with q tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the CD/DVD lens, or the whole drive unit.

Should recorder play cds bought from shop


Yes it should play all cd's - the laser is either dirty or needs replacing assuming it can spin discs ok.

No disc displayed


The disc won't spin until the unit recognizes that there is actually a disc there. Try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that fails, try playing a CD. If the CD plays, the optics are starting to fail as reading a DVD requires higher laser power.
