First of all check the little trigger inside that checks to make sure the lid is closed. It won't play the disc if it thinks the cover is open. Otherwise, it sounds like the motor that spins it is probably broken and needs to be repaired / replaced.

The most likely situation you have here is that the cd drive lens isn't reading, just because with a gamecube, it relies on that lens to detect if there is a disc inserted. Your best bet is to try and clean the lens with a que tip and some rubbing alcohol. Be gentle, only very gentle wipes back and forth in a circular motion, then dry it the same way. If that doesn't work, I can give you some tips on how to rip the thing apart and see if it is a connection inside somewhere

I have a Goodmans DAB600 Micro System and its not reaind the disc


Hello,
how long have you been using this player and when did this begin?
Remove the disc and try another.
If the player still doesn't read disc, then it means the laser is weak.
The lens is weak such that it cannot load data on discs. Its spinning, trying to load, but can't because of the weak laser.
Get a lens cleaner, use it to clean the lens. If that doesn't solve the problem, get a screw driver, open the player's cover so that you can gain access to the lens, use a cotton board to clean the surface of the lens. This should clean dust or dirt that might be on the lens.
If non of the above solves the problem, then know that you need to replace the laser to a brand new one.
To replace the lens, remove the bad laser, use it as a sample to get exactly the same type and do the replacement. Note that replacing a laser (lens) needs a professional touch, so if you cannot replace the laser, get it to a repairman to fix it for you.
Once this us done, your player will play all discs again.
Good luck.

If you took it apart you might of voided the warranty. Try buying like a cd cleaner they sell them at bust buy and stuff and give that a try. If that doesn't work. Contact Stanton and Have them take a look at it for you.

Not reading DVD discs


Hello,

has it been reading DVD discs before? Also, does it read other discs apart from DVD's?

It is possible that your DVD drive's lens (laser) is weak. You can try to use a lens cleaner or cutton board to clean the lens.

Take care.

Doesn,t read and start disc


Clean the lens with a soft cotton cloth but be careful not to touch it with bare hands. Make sure the lens is not soiled with dust.
Note: if it says 'NO DISC" immediately after closing the tray, check capstan motor if spins smoothly. It is the one spinning the disc. Open the unit's casing to have a view of the disc when playing. If it doesn't spin, replace capstan motor.

My xbox 360 wont play discs - keeps repeating open tray, I can play demos and xbox live but not discs or movies, any tips?? Thanks!


I just found a post on this and it worked for me. My warranty is past. So I took matters in my own hands. I took it apart which was fairly simple cleaned the lens and surrounding areas but it didn't work. But this is what I found out its not reading the disk because the disk isn't spinning. With the box apart and drive open I put it back in the system and turned on the power I noticed the drive would spin slowly I then while the disk was trying to load I spun the disk by hand to help it along and wala it started spinning I powered down put it back together and as of 10:45 2night my gaming nightmare is over. I hope this was helpful. Good luck all!!

My xbox wont read my game disc


if you can't send the xbox back to Microsoft this worked for me.
The 360 would spin the game up and say reading but than stop and do nothing.
I took the case apart, took out the cd drive, took that apart so i could get to the laser.
put a little big of very clean water on a q-tip, wipe the laser lens down and use the dry side to dry it off.  put it somewhat back together and test, this worked fine for me, it read a disk no problem.

Disc won't spin,


If your PS2 slim console is chipped for playing fake games then try it by replacing the modification IC otherwise replace the lens with new one and your problem should be solved.

You're probably right to suspect the motor, since its not spinning, and the lens is clean. I recently had a "no disc" error that was fixed by general mechanic maintnance- taking apart the lens mechanism, cleaning, oiling and putting back together. If youre lucky it could also be your problem, and it should be a minimum repair fee. Good luck
