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.

Cannot read dvds. Display says incorrect disk


If the dvd player is doing this on all disks then there is something wrong with the laser assembly. Cost to repair for what it is, is prohibitive. If tv has audio video input, connect external player to that for viewing disks OR buy another combo.

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.

WRONG DISC ERROR WHEN PLAYING A DVD


HI,. this is a lens assembly fault. the lens is malfunctioning or, it may have stopped reading. this wrong disc code is just a universal warning that is concerning a fault if the main board doesn't receive any data(audio,video) when the disc is inserted.

Due to the integrated status of your unit, this will be a costly repair because, the entire assembly is combined together with the vcr section as well.

You will need to replace the entire assembly to fix this issue. the lens has burned out.

you can confirm my diagnosis by preforming a cleaning of the lens with a cleaning disc. if the unit continues to not read or play a CD after the cleaning, this will confirm my diagnosis.

Please rate and have a great day:)

DVD doesn't play any disk anymore. Displays a message: this can't of disc can't be played ... I tried several different types of disks.


Same here! It would say something along the lines of "this type of disc cannot be played. please insert a different disc." it's the appropriate dvd region, i've tried all types of dvds, and it still won't work. the vhs and cd still works, it's just the dvd player that won't.

Wrong disc on screen


If you DVD player is damaged, and u have external AUDIO\VIDEO inputs.Buy a $59.00 scan DVD player & save yourself a $100 repair bill.
The DVD heads coud be internittan { sometimes it works & sometimes i don't } U could have issues with the country codes that tell your DVD where the DVD CD was made at or where is was recorded.
