Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. It seems that the lens is unable to read discs or is dirty. To start with try running a lens cleaning disc, if that does not work then you have to open the unit and clean the lens with a Q-tip dipped in alcohol. If still the issue is not resolved then the lens should be replaced however, replacing a lens will cost you around $75 and a new one will cost you around $50. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Philips DVD 724 doesn't read disc. When put disc in, dvd players says no disc


Does the disc have a lot of scratches on the surface? Even the smallest scratch can make your disc unaccessable. Try a clean disc and see if the problem repeats itself. If it does, then the problem might be that the laser in your DVD is dirty, and needs to be cleaned. This can be done with a cd drive cleaner kit, which should be available at just about any electronics/gaming store.
Otherwise it might need a bit of a checkup from your local tech repair shop.
Hope that helps.
Cheers from NZ

I have plastic cover migration to my CD's. Slight problem is removed by alcohol; but some discs will not clean, and the disc is not readable. Help.


Try cleaning CDs under tap water and dry them thoroughly with a soft cloth. May seem weird, but this often clean the CD better tan alcohol.

Ensure CD have no paper label on top before washing them.

Crc on almost every DVD


A CRC error is a data check - cyclic redundancy check,
Either the DVD discs are dirty or scratched OR the DVD drive needs the laser lens cleaned OR the DVD drive is faulty.
If the DVD discs are scratched you may be able to polish out the scratches with a CD scratch removal kit.
Try cleaning the DVD drive with a CD drive cleaning kit to clean the laser lens.
If none of this works the the DVD drive is faulty and needs to be replaced.

Navigation not working get disk reading error message upon starting car and every few minutes afterward


Check for a scratched or dirty Navi DVD disc. Clean or have the scratches polish out at your local game store. Video game stores usually have a disc repair machine that polishes out scratches.
Note: In some cases the Navi unit can cause rotational scratches on the DVD. If this is the case than the Navi unit will have to be replaced.

Fifa 09 football problem. telling me to clean disc as it is unreadable i am cleaning the disc and restarting the console but it keeps telling me to clean the disc.


One common problem that video game players have all the time are scratched discs. A helpful way around buying a brand new game or a disc scratch remover, is to first:
a.) Borrow the same version of the game from a friend
OR
b.) Rent the same version of the game from a store
Now, take the unscratched disc, and install it to your hard drive.
And lastly, now you can put in the scratched disc and go to "Game Library", choose the game, and select "Play from Hard drive."
The reason this trick works, is because when you play your disc from the hard drive, it uses minimal memory from the disc itself.
NOTE: Installing a disc to your hard drive does NOT replace having to put in the game to play it.
You still need a copy of the game in order to run it from your hard drive. I believe this is some security feature so people don't go around copying the games and not buying them.
Also, I would NOT install the scratched disc to your hard drive, for this will not help your problem at all.

When i put a dvd in the dvd player it just comes on screen saying theres no disc


Try cleaning the lens with a CD/DVD cleaning kit that you can buy at a local eletronics store. If you have tech skills, open the player up and clean the glass eye reader lens with some rubbing alcohol using a Q-tip. Make sure the DVD you are using is not too scratched up. If it still don't work after you cleaned it and tried different disc then replace the optical reader drive

Skips or won't play disc if even slightly scratched


Hello opie440,

The optics might be dirty or the pickup assembly might need alignment. In the former case you can get an optics cleaning kit and try to clean the laser LED and pickup assembly. For the latter cause you will need to have thre unit aligned at a TV repair shop.

Ps2 keeps saying disk read error everytime disk is put in no matter what disk is put in what can i do to fix


  • Confirm the disc is inserted correctly into the PlayStation 2 console (label side should be facing up when the PlayStation 2 console is in the horizontal position).
  • Confirm the disc is clean. To clean a disc, use lint-free cleaning cloths made specifically for cleaning CD/DVD discs, sold at computer software stores. When cleaning the disc, we recommend starting from the innermost circle, and wiping out to the edge in a straight line. We do not recommend wiping in a circular motion, as it may create more scratches on the disc. [Note: Other materials, such as a paper towel or a T-shirt, may also scratch the disc. If there are any scratches, smudges, or fingerprints on the disc, it may not function properly.]
  • Try playing different CDs, DVDs, and games on the PlayStation 2 console to see if the problem exists across multiple discs.
  • To determine if the problem is with the disc itself, try playing the disc on a different PlayStation 2 console (or a PS oneTM or a standalone CD/DVD player, if applicable).
  • Confirm that you are not using any game modification devices. Unlicensed devices such as game modification devices can interfere with the proper function of the software. We do not recommend the use of any game modification devices or unlicensed products[1].
