Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players

4 Answers

Daewoo DV-6T999B DVD/VCR Combo DVD player has suddenly stopped recognizing DVD's that it has played in the past, or new DVD's. It tries to load and ends up saying Bad Disc. There is nothing wrong with the discs. It plays video cassettes fine. Any suggestions?

    I used a lens cleaning cloth as you suggested and it still does not recognize a DVD.

  • rdmslm Mar 31, 2008

    I have cleaned the lens as suggested by one of the "experts" and this did not help. He has not answered my reply so I'd like other suggestions please.

    I was completely out of line for my wise crack. I was just frustrated because I did not hear back from bestdarngood when I replied to him. You were right to put me in my place.

    Thank you so much. The cotton swab and the isopropyl alcohol worked like a charm. I truly appreciate your help. I have a disabled son who relies heavily on his DVD player. He is now a happy camper.

The step after using cleaner solution and disk is cleaning the pickup lens inside the DVD.
You need to disconnect device from power and remove the case.
Find the lens, that is the glass lens and under the DVD clamp.
Use a cotton swab and some isopropyl alcohol to gently wipe the lens.
Here is the complete procedure.

If it still does not work, you will need to replace the laser lens pickup that is the part below:

Use the schematics in the service manual if you decide to DIY

Or contact the nearest service.

    interestingly, all the 'experts' are telling you the same thing. That
    seems like good advice, but of course, perhaps you have a higher
    understanding than four world wide seasoned professionals, eh?

Try cleaning the laser lens with a soft cloth or a dvd cleaner and let me know if this fixes the problem. If it doesn't I will propose another solution to try. Thank you and have a good day.

My VHS-to-DVD Burned Disc used to work and now it doesn't


Richard,

It could be your disc is scratched or DVD+R can't be read in the DVD player. Check for any scratches. Then pop in the disc in to your PC DVD, to see if it's readable.

NOT ALL DISCS WILL PLAY ON ALL DVD'S. IT'S THE NATURE OF THE BEAST. TRY PLAYING THEM ON A MORE EXPENSIVE DVD PLAYER. THERE ARE MANY DIFFERENT PROTOCALLS USED BY THE DIFFERENT COMPANIES.

Dvd wont play just spins


Usual suspects (I have seen each one of these):
1. Home-made DVD defective
a- bad blank
b- bad burn (software settings incorrect)
c- not finalized
d- bad DVD recorder
2. Commercial DVDs - very scratched near center hole where startup data lives
3. Dirty laser lens on DVD player
4. Bad circuitry in DVD player (repairs almost always cost more than a new player)

Dvd "unknown disc" message coming up


Have you tryed to use a lens cleaning disc yet. The laser lens on these players and recorders alike, must have the lens cleaned every oince in awhile. If that does not help, most likly you have a bad laser pickup assembly and you will need to replace the plaer as to have that repaiered, you could buy a new unit. Good Luck
