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 !!!

No disc spin-up when inserted or when powering up


The problem is in the pladder motor that spins the DVD, the motor needs to be replaced, but the problem is they only sell the laser pickup assembly, which is very expensive.

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

Hi Allan,

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.

In your case the lens does not work on DVD , but only on CDs for the reasons above , that is quite common.

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.

The laser has become damaged/worn-out. There is no fix for it as replacement parts are not made for it.

Disk is "shot" out from the player still spinning fast


Maybe got damaged during shipping?? Try also to clean the lens. Theres not alot the consumer can do with a cd or dvd player as you need special equipment to work on these units as there are no user serviceable parts inside. If its a good unit maybe it would be worth a look at by a pro. Good Luck
