    It does still play CDs fine. Would it still be the laser pickup?

    The unit does play CDs just fine. Would it still be the laser pickup?

  • lynnebp Aug 29, 2010

    Your response was the laser pickup, but the player does read CDs. Would the laser pickup still be the problem? And would it be worth it to send out to fix or just buy a blu ray player but still use the audio of the JVC theater system?

    Yes, not being a tech head, it took a few comments back and forth, but I understand the situation now.

Ok this is simple you need to replace your laser pickup. This is the laser that reads your CD. When it is defective you can clean it all you want but it will not read your CD or DVD. You will have to let a tech do this unless you are a tech yourself thanks.

Thanks.

    No it would be the type of cleaner you have chosen your laser cannot read the information on it thats your only problem

    Thanks

  • lynnebp Aug 29, 2010

    I'm getting confused. Is it the laser pickup or the type of cleaner. It it's the pickup, is it worth it to take it to be fixed or just buy a blu ray player for the video and use the JVC home theater system for the audio?

  • Willard Broughton Aug 29, 2010

    It is is the type of cleaner you have. To answer your question if your laser pick up was bad it would be feasable for you to replace it.

  • Willard Broughton Aug 29, 2010

    Try another claner or just take it apart and use a soft tissue to wipe over the laser lenz.

  • lynnebp Aug 29, 2010

    Thanks. I understand.

Dvd won't play my dvd's. keep saying no disc or wrong disc. what is the problem



  • Hi, Sounds like the lens is just really dirty. Go buy a leans cleaner disk and run it through the DVD player two or three times to get the lens good and clean. Repeat about once a month to keep the lens clean and running properly. Sometimes you need to run it through 3 or 4 times to get the lens to read again.

  • These disks I speak of have little bristles on it that "sweep" the lens clean. I use them on all my disk players and they work real well.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

The dvd player just says it is loading and never plays the disk


Hello,

The reason your player keeps reading a disc but do not play it is either the lens is weak or dirty.

To fix it if it is dirty, all you have to do is to clean the lens with a lens cleaner.

To fix it, if the lens is weak,

  1. Get the appropriate screwdriver,
  2. Unscrew the cover of the player and remove it,
  3. Unscrew the disc tray, you will have access to the lens,
  4. Get a new lens and replace the lens,
  5. Reverse the process to reassemble the player.
  6. Test it with a DVD disc.
Take care

"Wrong disc" memorex dvd player error


Sounds like a build up of dust on the lens.

2 options -

Either buy a DVD lens cleaner

Note DVD LENS cleaner, NOT DVD Cleaner the latter is for the discs, not the player

or second option is to remove lid from your player (usually 5 or 6 screws) and gently swab the lens with a cotton bud or similar soft lint free product. Try not to push too hard on the lens or you may damage the mechanism.

The lens is really obvious as it faces upwards and looks like a small round clear glass bead.

Make sure its unplugged too!
