Question about Panasonic sa-ht800V Home Theater Audio System SA-HT800V System

NO DISC message


The DVD worked fine a few days ago. Today I put in a DVD and got a NO DISC message. I've tried 3 different DVD's and the same message. 
I've had this home theater for about 4 years and its worked fine up until now.

My other components (speakers SB-FS803, SB-PC803, SB-WA312) are fine. If I can't fix the receiver, can I purchase any other receiver that can use these speakers?

    Yes, thank you. I am interested in any receiver that I can use with my current speakers (SB-FS803, SB-PC803, SB-WA312).

    THANK YOU.

Hi,

The first thing i would suggest you to do is a hard reset by unpluging the the player for 30min and then try again.

If this does not solve your problem then please see if the player tries to read the disc.
Load a disc and listen.Does the player make squealing noises or is it totally quiet? Squealing noises may indicate that the player is trying to synchronize with the disc but can't due to an obstruction on the lens or in the laser path inside the pickup or a defect in the pickup. This can also be caused by an intermittent signal problem due to a faulty ribbon cable.

Totally silent means that the photo sensor is not getting any usable input from the laser at all, meaning that the pickup is "blind" for lack of a better word.
This can be caused by an obstruction of the beam by foreign matter on the lens or inside the pickup all the way to a marginal or failed laser diode and/or photosensor array. This can also be caused by a bad ribbon cable with one or more severed traces.

You could try to clean the optics. This is the most common malfunction as far as i know in all disc players. It would involve taking the cover off and finding a way to expose the lense, and then cleaning it with a very gentle brush. some players have a cover for the lense that swings to the side during playing, this greatly reduces the chance of dust accumulating, but its still worth the try.

If you actually see dust on the lense, then its just that simple. clean, close, play.

It may also be worth your while to check on the small shafting that guides the carriage of the laser pickup. Dirt, grome, dust and solidified lubricant can cause stoppage of the carriage and the laser eye then fails to read the next track.

If the problem does not get solved then you have to get it repaired.

Goodluck,
Please don't forget to rate the solution

Hello

It's possible the lens is dirty, this can be fixed with a DVD / CD lens cleaner disk.

its also possible the lens is damaged and would need to be replaced.

I'd first try a dvd lens cleaner.

Hi there

I would suggest cleaning the laser lens with a lens cleaner disc first

    That may bring the player back to life. If not, then it may have an optic failure occurring or needs a new spindle motor. MOst speakers are interchangeable with other systems. BUT these days, packaged systems are often the go. Are you looking for some reccommendations for what to get next?

    They are fairly conservatively rated at 60wrms, I will get back to you in a couple of minutes with a few "choice" picks. :)

    Looks like this type of combined receiver dvd/vcr player has been surpased somewhat. These days, DVD record functions are popular, but they mostly dont have power amps built in, that means a bit more expence with an additional amp to power the lot up.

    Check a few for your self here

Open up the unit and clean the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that does not resolve the problem, try a music CD and report the results here. I suspect that the optics have begun to fail. If that is the case, the music CD will play but a DVD will not. The optics assembly is available (part # RAF3023A-1) for about $60.

I assume that problem is dirt on laser lenses. If you don’t get any result after this, than you can replace receiver with new one. If you want to use your existing speakers with new receiver with integrated amplifier, you must pay attention on wattage, to be same like old one (i.e. 100W), and also resistance (i.e. 4 ohm). If it’s same like old receiver, you should have no problem. Good luck.

SAMSUNG DVD R120 error EC:0207


I had exactly the same problem -- error message of "This disc can be neither played nor recorded. Please check the disk [EC:0207]" after the machine had been working fine for a year. I downloaded the latest firmware from the Samsung website, burned it to a CD-R disk (took three tries until the DVD Recorder recognized the disk -- worked when I used Rocio CD Creater software), then loaded the firmware updates to the DVD Recorder. On the Samsung website you can retrive the firmware update instructions as well. I had to perform the firmware upgrade several times until it successfully updated both the system firmware as well as the disk firmware. After successfully updating both, the Recorder now recognizes the DVD-R disks and I was able to resume recording. I have however, noted some choppiness with the playback of the newly recorded disks. Other than that, the firmware upgrade successfully resolved the problem.
