No this happens because at the back of the dvd drive there is sensors that overheat, if you stop the heat build up you will be able to play again.

You can use a good guide or send it in to be fixed.

Hello
Either your DVD players' laser pickup unit or its strip wire has got damaged. Laser pickup unit is one which reads the disc we put into it, and strip wire is one which connected between the main circuit board and laser pickup unit assembly. The strip wire damage is common for all cd players, and dvd players. Just replace the strip wire with a new one of same type; and see the effect. If it helps you it is OK. If not, replace the laser pickup unit assembly with same type and number.
If you wants anymore assistance, feel free to contact me by Fixya. OK.

My DVD has problem read disc DVD. When I put inside disc VCD everything is fine. I have region 0 on my dvd.


hi,
i have got the same complaint some days ago. your players spindle motor is faulty.
its winding have some problem. spindle motor is that one on which the dvd spins. when u insert the dvd it is not rotating at the required rpm. thats why it is not reading. the problem will not be with video cds . because it doesn't required a high rpm. replace the spindle motor. it will not cost a lot. its sure that ur problem will be solved.
if then also the problem remains,
your player's laser pick up unit have some problem with its DVD laser. there are two types of laser in dvd players. one for reading and playing audio cds, mp3 and video cds and the other for reading and playing dvds. in your player dvd laser have problem. dont think that these are two separate unit. the lasers are mounded in the same unit. if any of the laser get damaged you have to replace the whole unit.
if u need any more assistance feel free to contact me through fixya.
bellow is the image of laser pickup mechanism

My xbox is having troubles reading discs. It will sometime read a game as a dvd or even a cd, but wont go farther than a set screen. I have no red rings and have cleared my cache in memory settings. Dont...


You have a dirty laser or bad laser easy way to tell is to take your 360 apart and take the disc drive apart with the disc drive apart hook it back up to the 360 make sure to put the bottom shell back on the disc drive so you dont ground it out on the console. Look at your laser while it tries to read games. IF it produces a red beam try wiping it off with a qtip and rubbing alchol if that doesnt work you need a new laser which cost less then $10 on ebay. Hope this helps.

My xbox wont read my disc. it makes unusual noises when i close the tray. whats wrong?


Hi, the unit needs to have the laser reader lens cleaned but DONT use regular rubbing alcohol.
Get pure stuff....the rubbing type leaves a glare on glass and plastic lenses.
Also ,the chrome rails that the laser moves along need to be cleaned and lubed with liquid silicone.
This method clears read problems most of the time.

Thanks for using fixya.

Wont read discs. turns on fine, i dont get a red light, but when i pop a disc in, whether its a movie or game, it wont read it


replace the dvd loader. that way if it is either the laser or spindle motor, you will have solved the problem.
and its easier than dismantleing the entire unit setup dvd game ***'y

Dvd keeps saying loading but won't play


Sounds very much like you have a either a dirty laser, or a laser unit failure. Put a cleaning disc through the machine, and see if it improves. If not, then you need to either have a new laser fitted, or a new machine.

Disc Read Error


the laser might just need re-aligning or the power adjusting so that it will read the discs again. cleaning the laser with a cotton bud and spit is as good as anything but only wet the tip a little bit enough to wipe the laser. The you would be better to adjust the 'pots' on the 360 laser because after a lot of use the laser unit loses power and starts to get disk read errors. we can fix this type of error and we will knock £5 off the price for all fixya users. www.fixmyconsole.co.uk

I put a brand new game and i wont play i says disc read error


If your other games still work, take the new one back to the store you purchased it from. If your other games are giving you problems then you probably have a laser problem. If you can hear the disc spin, you generally just need to clean the laser lens within the drive. If the disc doesn't even spin, you either have a completely dead laser unit, or a bad spindle motor. Lets just hope it's the laser unit, they only cost like 50 bucks, I don't even know where you could get a new spindle motor. Best of luck

Xbox won't read disks!!!!


If your xbox wont read the disc, it just says open tray, there is a very simple solution i discovered. You dont need to do anything complicated or fancy, simply make sure everytime you turn your xbox off the disc is out. Turn your xbox on without a disc in, let it get to your profile screen, then put the disc in. Works every time.
