Dvd player error

When trying to play DVDs that used to play in he combo, I get an error the top of the screen that reads "wrong disk type", and it ejects. It kind of makes a little noise when the player starts to read the disk also. The unit is only 5 yrs old, is in a bedroom where it is used very little. But it has had a playstation hooked up to it, if that makes any difference.

PS has no effect.. Most likely the laser is going bad in the DVD.. See if it will play a music CD* If it will play a music CD but not the DVD it is the Laser. Most of the Laser asm are made in china and don't last long.

Some DVD's have a disk error "cannot read, disk error" then it ejects. This has only happened on 2 titles....3 of one title and 2 off another title. We have over 150 DVD's in our library and they all play...


Its a possibility that the dvds may be set to a different regional setting that the dvd player dosent read, if there is a setting on the dvd player that allows you change the regional settings try another, the main 3 are pal1,pal2 and ntsc. hope this helps

New dvds show inncorrect disk message. older dvds run fine


Look at older disks and see if they are R- or R+ your dvd player may only read one type or the other. Look at new disks and see if they are R- and R+ disks. Some DVD players read both some only one type.

Samsung DVD-4600 DVD/VCR Player


My Smasung DVD/VCR Combo stopped reading DVDs because of a dirty read head. It started by only playing disks sometimes, and progressed to never playing disks. I assumed it was a dirty laser lens so I bought a lens cleaner set. Unfortunately my player wouldn't play the cleaner disk.

So I took it apart and cleaned the laser lens manually with some isopropyl alcohol (the clenser that came with my cleaning disk), and a lens cloth (that came with my glasses). Just open the case (starting with the screws in the back) and remove the snap in cross panel that obscures the lens of the DVD portion. Put a drop of cleanser on the lens and gently wipe it with the cloth.

Oh and by the way, I take no responsibility if you break your own player while following my instructions. My own DVD player was far out of warranty at the time I cracked it open.

Reads all but DVD-Help PLEASE


When you say it won?t read are you trying to play commercial DVD movies or read DVD data disks? If you're trying to play movies then you need a couple of things the first being some type of player program. Real player works as does Windows media player but usually DVD drives come with a striped down version of PowerDVD or WinDVD. If you in fact have a player installed and when a DVD is inserted in your drive it doesn't play it may not be configured to automatically play DVDs. Try opening your player program and trying to manually play your DVD. Let us know if you have any success or if you need more assisted. If you do let us know what player program and operating system you have and any error messages that may appear.
