The problem is using lense cleaners they are really not that good the only proper way is remove the case and clean the lense by hand this shouldnt be done if you are not capable of this as your working with laser products so be warned.

Failing this then the laser is no good and needs replacing

    You need to clean the lens manually.
    To do this you have to disconnect dvd from power.
    then remove dvd cover.
    Clean lens gently first with lens cleaning solution and a soft cloth.
    Then apply isopropyl alcohol
    let dry well and take care not to leave cloth hair on the lens
    Close cover and restart.

Wrong disc error


Two of the most popular problem with this error are if the lens is dirty or the DVD you are playing is from a different region.
To clean the lens buy this - http://www.amazon.com/Maxell-BR-LC-Blu-ray-Lens-Cleaner/dp/B00178HN0O/ref=sr_1_6?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1304733401&sr=1-6
If the DVD is from a different region return it. More info on regions - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD_region_code

It will not play, record or recognize any disk


Can it play regular movie disc's ? Try to use a DVD/CD lens cleaner to make sure that the lens is not dirty. They are easily available at any computer or music store. Do you have a factory reset option in the menu, try to reset the device.

Dvd wont play says wrong disc


If this happen with all disks , then the lens are dirty or faulty.

Try cleaning the lens with a cleaner DVD. If that is not enough, then the player must be taken apart to clean lens with isopropyl alcohol and cotton, or to replace the lens pickup.

Before attempting repair call manufacturer or retailer to check warranty status.

No disc error video and audio cd works only dvd gets nodisc error


Hi there,

Did you try to test it and play another using another disc?

You may try to clean the optical lens of the unit using a optical disc cleaner available on any electronic shop, it seems that the drive lens is dirty and can't recognize the disc inserted.

Hope this helps.

Pionner DVR-540H-S no longer plays DVD's


little,

good day, true it's not advisable to use disc cleaner for it may also damage or scracth the optic lens inside.Possibly the optic lens of your player is either dirty caust by dust or faulty. but let's do hope it's only dust related and the only thing you can do now is to open and unscrew the upper cover of your player. Get a soft cotton buds, after dismantling the upper cover locate the optic drive lens and clean the lens by wipping it gently in circular direction. then try to play some DVD.

cheers,
mark

Won't play dvd


Most DVD players that would not play a disc even with a known good disc inside signifies that the llaser eye/lens is not reading the disc. This could probably be attributed to:
1. dirty, damaged, inverted, blank, un-finalized burned CDs or DVDs;
2. defective, weak, dirty/dusty burned-out laser eye/lens;
3. defective slider shafting (where the laser eye's carriage moves) or some other components.

A few things you can try:
1. Use a CD cleaner (readily available from most computer shops);
2. use a can of compressed air and blow through the inside of the loaded disc area;
3. gently tap on the top cover where you estimate the reading/laser eye/lens would be;
4. gently press on the tray door once the disc is loaded.

Should this not be corrective, perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional such as those in a Service Center. Alternately, your friendly neighborhood electronic shop should do just fine.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kindest regards.
