Could be one of several things:

  1. Disc not spinning due to bad motor or electronics.
  2. Laser not reading dues to dirty lens. Try cleaning it gently with a moistened Q-Tip.
  3. Laser assembly defective.
  4. Laser assembly not sliding on slide rail due to either bad lubrication, bad slide motor, or bad electronics.
Hope that helps....

I have a Sony RDR-GX7 DVD recorder that has become very selective in reading DVDs. All the home made DVDs and insertion of new (SONY) DVD blanks result in "disc error". Only exception to the rule...


The laser is probably getting old. Disk have different "grades" and as the unit gets older it cant read the higher ones.
For instance you will probably see that your unit will 100% read CD's official or not.

My Sony RDR-GX7 dvd recorder keeps giving me a "disc error" message every time I try to play a disc. How can I fix this?


Hard to say because this could be caused by any number of things. You could try cleaning the optical read head but this could get very involved unless you use a cleaning disc which may not work. You could try different discs such as a CD to see if that still fails. It could be the disc format. If everything fails then most likely a repair is required. Go to https://eservice.sony.com/webrma/web/index.do and locate a SONY repair location.

Formats maxell discs,not sonys, then records less than2 mins.and reads dirty disc.. disc style cleaners,unplugging unit for days does nothing to help.store bought movies play perfect.


What you can do is open the Player. You will see a DVD drive in there (same type used in Computers) You can replace it with another IDE DVD writer. This solved many of my client's problems.
I always keep a few IDE DVD roms, and writers handy in my shop. It is the simplest, and cheapest fix.
Hope it helps.

Having trouble recording to -R discs after 5 successful years. Tells me the disk is dirty and stops recording after 30 seconds. Thanks!


5 years is a good long run for this type of component. try cleaning your lens first. if that doesn't work, try changing disc manufacturers
