I had this problem with my unit. After disassembling it and finding no problems it dawned on me.

The drive motor is very small and not very powerful. So I assumed that any resistance to the motor (like a sticky bearing) may cause it a problem.

So by taking 2 small screwdrivers and gently taking off the disk attachement (just open the lid and gently pop it off) I then put very light oil on the motor shaft.

It has fixed the problem. It took about 5-10 minutes for the oil to work its way into the bearing but works fine now. You might want to give it a try....only takes a couple of minutes.

See shoie33's solution. GENIOUS!!! The only thing I would add is that the screwdrivers are only for popping the disc spindle off - NOT for removing the two small phillips screws found under the spindle. THANK YOU shoie33 !!!

When a DVD is placed in the player to play, the reading on the screen is "No Disc" and nothing plays.


Check the motor if its spinning or not.If it isn't spinning fast enough that you need to lubricate the motor from the underside so that the lubricant doesnt go on the lens.But if its spinnig fast enough that maybe the lens isnt picking and needs cleaning or replacing..Good Luck

SAMSUNG HT-P10 DIGITAL HOME THEATER SYSTEM wont play DVDs


You could try cleaning the drive with a dvd cleaner disk and also a can of compressed air to blow into the drawer. It may just be dirty. Good luck! I hope this helps you.

Place DVD in any slot and it says "reading disc" then "no disc"


When you get no disk error, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will start operating on certain disks better than others.

In that case you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD/DVD will not be read, therefore the error.

Whe this problem is starting you may be able to read only CD, DVD or Blue ray, or for example only DVD-R and not +R , or only to read and not to write and so on. After more prolonged usage , often the unit goes losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all.

If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens problem.

Try first using a CD/DVD or Blue ray lens cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does not work you will need to disassemble the drive , and clean lens directly with q tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the CD/DVD lens, or the whole drive unit.

DVD's won't play


I have a somewhat similar problem, but wasn't after a cleaning disk use. Most of the time when I try to use this system now, after I put a DVD in, I start getting a loud buzzing noise (almost as if gears are meshing)

Wont play disk has error code


It is a lens problem, the laser lens is either dirty or the lens pickup is faulty.

DVD PLAYER PROBLEM


Sounds like a common problem with this trutech brand. There are some possibilities. 1. Laser could be worn out, 2 it could be a bad cable coming from the laser. 3 The home switch for the laser to come all the way back to its "HOME" position could be bad. But usually if this is the case, the disc won't spin at all. And 4th, the spindle motor that spins the disc could be worn out. Causing the disc not to spin fast enough and thus causing an error. Let me know if you want to send me one of these anyone so as i can trouble shoot the problem further. Keep me posted and i hope this helps you out some. Thank you Jay

Dwm-3900 wont play dvd's


Because you have limited knowledge of your products history, first ensure that your Country Code is set correctly. Using your remote, access your User Menu/Setup > Country Code > U S > Memory > Setup. I am assuming that you are in the US, and are trying to view Region 1 DVD's. Please update for further instructions if the above doesn't solve your problem....good luck.
