Hello,

was the player reading discs before now? And how long have you been using this player?

I suspect that the laser (lens) of this player is weak, that's why it cannot load discs.

The symptoms is like that of a dirty or bad laser (lens).

Use a lens lens cleaner to clean the lens. But if that doesn't solve the problem, then it means you will have to replace the lens of your player completely, in order for it to play/read discs again.

Good luck.

My CD player keeps displaying no disk and wont play the cleaner disc, is something dirty or broken?


Hello
If it does not play the cleaner disc, just inspect whether the disc inserted in spins inside it. You can check this by open the upper cover of the player, and inserting a disc into it. If inserted disc spins inside, and the player won't read it, the fault is with its laser pickup unit, and it should be replaced with same type and number.
If the disc dos not spins, the fault is with the sled motor [the motor that spins the inserted disc], has damaged, and should be replaced. OK.

Is this a blueray player? If it is, the disc you put in probably isn't formatted to the blueray. If it is a standard dvd player there is probably something wrong with the player. You have two options. One, to take it in for service or two, to get another dvd player. If you have another dvd player in your home, try the disc you can't play from the one player and put it into the working player. If that works, then something is wrong with the dvd player you are having issues with.

Hi,

Your no disc error can be a DIY like the following steps.
Assuming that the disc is good.
1.Clean the lens. - Sometimes because of dust the lens can't read any disc. Try clean the lens by soft cotton buds. Be careful while doing this.

I've suspect that you have a dirty lens,below are just for your guide.
2.Replace the ribbon - Check the ribbon connected to the lens from the main board for scratch, damage. Once it has an open line then of course the lens can't read the disc. Also try to erase the contact by pencil eraser. If you've done the steps above and the symptoms still there then the next step requires you a little knowledge in soldering technique and reading the ohmmeter.
3.Check the motor - Check the motor that spin the disc with an ohmmeter. You can test it using the ohmmeter (x1) even it is connected on the lens assembly.Good motor - reading should be fairly high and it will spin. Bad motor- reading will drop to low resistance and will not spin.
Hint : 50% of my repaired unit the above parts are commonly caused of the problem.
If you confirmed that you have a defective motor then replace it with a new one. Before replacing the new motor you have to check the clearance of the disc holder with the old one. The clearance should be the same as the old because if not the lens will not read the disc if it is too far or too close.
Ifyou already cleaned the lens, and confirmed that the ribbon is good as well as the motor then I've advice you to send it to repair shop because the next step should be done with an expert because it is quite technical diagnosing the fault between the pick-up lens and the main board.

Give a thumbs up if you find it useful.
Have a nice day!

Dvd player will not spin disk


Unfortunately, your DVD player is broken. Portable units like these often get bumped and jostled and the motor that spins the DVD quits (very small and fragile). Sorry, I wish there were a magic button.
