I am going to guess the dvd player needs reset. It may have gotten some of the internal eproms corrupted. It happens quite frequently.

So, to reset, do the following:

Unplug the power cord and leave disconnected for at least 30 minutes. When you power it back up all internals will go back to factory defaults.

If the reset does not solve the problem, you may have upset something internally with moving it around - that can happen, too. Just smack the set once or twice with your hand to jar any loose connections or cold solder joints back to activity.

ALso, clean the optical lense. Use a cotton q-tip. Just flick the q-tip across the lense a few times and that will dislodge any microscopic particles that may have gotten in the way.

For accurate solution let me know your model num and circumstances.

My DVD is showing "no disc"

The DVD drive may be unable to read the disc. If you try a couple of different DVDs and get the same result, it pretty much confirms drive failure.

Why is my portable dvd player is reading no disc when disc is in?

Over time the laser pickup becomes weaker until it is unable to read a disc. Try a dvd cleaning kit and follow instructions, or get a Q-Tip and rubbing alcohol and gently clean the lens, allow several minutes to dry. If this fails cheaper to replace the player.

I have an older DVD player. COBY DVD-404. I downloaded pictures from my camera to my computer onto a DVD-R disc and then again onto a DVD+RW disc. Neither disc would play on my player. It comes up on...

Your 'old' DVD player is the problem. It is unable to 'read' picture files. Time to put the COBY away and upgrade to a DVD player that can read .jpg, .jpeg images. Most new players do and they are not that expensive.

The player just reads "disc error"


If your DVD player keeps reading disc error, it simply means the player is unable to read.

The reason is that the lens of the player is weak and cannot play the disc.

The solution for you to completely replace the lens.

to replace the lens, get a replacement lens from an electronic shop,

get the appropriate screwdriver and unscrew the player,

open up the disc tray and carefully replace the lens,

ensure that you do not tamper with the panel of the player.

once the replacement is properly done,

couple back the player and test with a DVD disc.

take care

Dear Sir The dvd cannot read the disc

One of the problems with many DVD players is as they get older the spindle motor is unable to overcome the inertia of the spindle + the disc.

If this is the case the read head will try to hunt for the start of the DVD if it is not spinning then it wont be able to find the DVD. If you can access the DVD by taking the cover off you can give the DVD a chance to spin by giving it a little push if the player can find the DVD then you can watch the movie.

If this is the case you will need a new spindle motor fitting to your player.
