Trouble playing DVDS

Lately, I've been having trouble playing DVDs....an error message pops up saying, "Unknown Disc"....I wipe the DVD off to make sure there isn't dust, etc...but still have the problem...I've had this DVD player for 2 years and haven't had this problem as much as I've had it in the past few weeks. Does it need service or repair?

All discs will not play with this set. It is not a fault. It is a common trouble to this model.

After disc is loaded, it says "unknown disc."


Is it a pirated dvd? If it is, do you know some dvd players won't read pirated dvds? And if it isn't, then your dvd player may be dirty (the lens). For that you would have to buy a cleaning disk. You can get one at Radioshack. Or maybe what type of dvd type is it? Is it dvd-r, dvd-rw, or what? Some dvd players have trouble reading dvd-rw sometimes.

Hope this helps.

When trying to play DVDs the words unknown disc title appears. Even after several attempts with various DVDs we havent had any success.


have u tried cleaning the hea of ur dvd player?after using a dvd player or cd player for long times of continous play say 6 months or if u play too many scratched discs and u dont clean the head of the player it starts skipping the disc or many a times dosnt recognise the disc so it'll give u errors like "Unknown Disc", "Disk Error" etc so i would really recommend u to clean its head using a dvd head cleaner cd.. its easily available in the video stores or malls.. u can purchase any dvd head cleaner cuz there are number of manufatcures for this. im sure this would solve ur issue.
PLEASE DO RATE ME,WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE IT

Disc error with some DVDs


If the DVD recorder is an early model, it may be having trouble understanding some of the newer copy-protection schemes that are in use.

There's not too much you can do for this kind of problem, but you can try looking on the manufacturer's website to see if there's a firmware update for the DVD recorder. It would be something you would download and burn to a CD or DVD and then load into the recorder. That would update the DVD player's software so it can work with newer discs.
