Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players

1 Answer

Has anyone else had this problem?I bought Star Trek: Enterprise Season Three on DVD and found the first disc was effectively blank, apparently not having been burnt at all.I got a replacement copy and it was better but still appears to be faulty, refusing to play past a certain point in the second episode(and even more worryingly it seems to play less and less each time, almost as though the information is being rubbed off somehow).

It's highly unlikely that 2 sets of "factory" DVD's are defective. If they were recorded copies, then I'd say it's caused by using cheap discs. Try the disc(s) in another DVD player, maybe a friends. Also try cleaning your DVD player's laser lens. Sometimes a cleaning disc will do the job.

BTW, I'm a Star Trek Fan and have the entire collection.

Hope that helps...

Hi, I bought this LG RC897T 2 years ago and have only used the DVD player about 60 times. I've bought original "US" TV Box set dvds and Chinese knock-offs, and wrote my own dvds and they all...


Hello Mark. Most likely your player is regionalized and not compatable ith those DVD's that won't play. To eliminate the regional setting on your player go to this link http://www.wisebread.com/make-your-dvd-player-region-free-in-seconds

It contains the step by step instructions on how to make your player region free. It also has an how to video and a full explanation of why the regionalization was installed in the first place. Joe

I'm having the same problem, i put the disk in - i just bought the XMen 4 Film collection on Blu Ray and the player just spits it out again,

The only thing that comes up on the screen is BD-MV in the top left corner.

I recently have not been able to record on DVD+RW discs. An error message keeps coming up saying it cannot record on this disc.The dumb part about it is I still have a couple of discs of the same nature...


According to the user's manual, for DVD+RW or DVD-RW discs, it may take some time for the disc to be recognized and then it has to format the disc prior to using it. This should be an automatic process when the disc is inserted (looking at page 17 of the owner's manual). If this is not happening, you may need to clean the DVD with a DVD cleaner (a DVD disc with tiny brushes that wipe the lense on the unit while the disc spins). You could first try using a can of compressed air and blowing any dust/dirt out of the DVD slot (with the tray open).

My sony dvd player reads " cannot play this dic" with every disc I put in, is this fixable and if so how?


Depends, first I have to ask what types of disc's your trying. Are they CD-R's (burnt) movies, or all store bought ? I ask because usually if its not reading discs (an optics problem) then it would say no disc found or something to that effect. What type of DVD player is it ? From another country perhaps ? Region settings can come into effect, if the dvd's or the player is from another country. Post back with any answers to the above questions for further help.Thank you for choosing Fixya!

One of my grandsons fixed it.He turned up today out of the blue and noticed that I had been hitting the up button at the same time as the play button.Thats what happens when you are clumsy.This caused the choice to change to German.Thanks for the enquiry. Donca

Disc error


I have this same problem so I called Sharp.  This model is  a little older.  When you buy the disks there is a number with an X after it.  If you buy the - R disk the number has to be 4X or less,  for the -RW it has to 2X or less.  Apparently they can still be bought at Office Depot or online.

Cannot play this disc


The DVD-R130 can only record to DVD-R and DVD-RW disks - it cannot identify blank DVD+R and DVD+RW disks. For recorded DVD disks, the player will play finalised DVD+R/+RW disks without any problem.
