The optics are either dirty or are starting to fail. Higher laser power is required to read DVDs. Try opening up the unit and cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that fails, the unit will need to have new optics.

Pioneer dv-2010 dvd player makes a whirring noise


That's because the lazer on the tray is trying to read the disc. Does this happen to other discs? When the lazer can't read the file, the drive spins up the disc to help it read it.

My remote control did not function at all. I flipped the switch in the back of the DVD player from "system" to "single" and not the remote control works fine. This is not mentioned in the manual.

Dvd no read error


The 'NoRead' error points to a faulty DVD-RAM drive. If the drive is making clunking/whirring noises, and taking too long to read an inserted disc, chances are the traverse unit (spindle motor/laser assembly) within the drive has failed. Unfortunately, this part cannot be replaced; you would need to replace the whole drive.

Look around for a good cheap used one, or, if you are prepared to do so, order a new drive (brand new DVD-RAM drives ordered through Panasonic could cost a couple of hundred dollars or more though so be warned). Check the model number on the top of the drive (prefixed with VXY before considering any replacement.

THE UNIT DOES NOT READ DVD'S WHEN LOADED.


Hello,

the answer is "YES". You can replace the laser (lens), that's the only option you have left since cleaning the laser (lens) did not solve the problem. This shows that the laser (lens) is dead. You need a brand new one.

So go ahead and replace the laser unit, its a very good idea.

Good luck.

DVD player will not read any discs.


> I tried recording a VHS to a DVD according to the instructions in the manual.
There can hardly be instructions in the manual to do this since that model is not a DV Recorder, but if it isn't reading any DVD then you have a warranty problem assuming your unit is still within the warranty period.
That unit is capable of recording DVD content to VHS tape but not the opposite.

Picture roll, loss of vertical sync.


I opened the cover, found nothing smoked or loose, no tweaks available, in short there was nothing I could do without diagnostic gear. All other sources in my system were fine, so simple substitution confirmed the problem was output of Teac dvd player. Taking it to a repair shop would be $50 up front for fix-or-not... So, I went to Walmart and replaced it with a Sony DVD player for about $40. Regret loosing the look of matching components with my Teac receiver, cassette player but it's job is to play movies. Fixtya!

Unknown disc error and whirring sound!


Do you leave the unit on all day and night on standby?

If this unit gets to hot you can experience this problem I suggest that you turn the power OFF totally until the unit cools down and try again. Normally 15 mins is enough.
