SOURCE: player won't play any disks only says CANNOT LOAD DISK

http://forum.videohelp.com/topic350059.html

I think I found these adjustments! There are two tiny surface-mount potentiometers (could be capacitors also) sitting in the small circuit on laser assembly.

this is exactly response I would like to hear - an expert opinion!

What I did with help of 1mm-wide screwdriver:

1) There were two surface-mount potentiometers marked with C1 and D. I tried first D. Turned it clock- and counterclockwise by about 45 degrees.
2) After each turn I opened and closed tray to force the player read DVD disc.
3) It did not help, "NO DISC", then I tried the same with C1, and again, no luck.
4) Finally, I came back to D and turned it by about 180 degrees in one direction. IT WORKED!!!

Moreover, seem that now player reads content of the DVD discs faster then before. Probably manufacturer did not really adjust it properly and upon the time something has degraded, so it failed eventually.
Some Home dvd players may not have any adjustment abilities, but you would find such things not too far away from the lense, if they don't exist, get a new unit.

SOURCE: Disc error when reading dvd

If cleaning of the lens did not help then it is possible that the laser beam torch needs a replacement. Different formats need different strengths of the beam and the torch would need to be replaced.

My IBM R51 laptop can't read any other cd/vcd


Hello,

its either its a lens problem or that was how the CD/DVD Drive was made.

There are some drives that doesn't play white face discs, that is, they select disc and don't play all CD's, so maybe yours fall under this category.

How long have you been using your laptop and has it ever played Cd/Vcd's before?

If it plays them before, then it means your drive's lens is weak, but if it has never played them before, then it means that's how the player was made.

Which ever way, you still have an option of replacing the drive if you wish.

Take care.

Acer LAptops Optiarc DVD Player plays VCD but no DVD.


Only way to make sure it's the drive is to test it in another machine. If it's the drive just buy a new one, it'll cost more to repair in time alone!

Unlock my DVD player to watch VCD's.


VCD's do not have "regions" specification. The DVD player either can play VCD's, or cannot play VCD's. It's a format that is not very popular among manufacturers. I have two players that both play my VCD's, but I had to make sure they accepted that format before I bought them. This player accepts DVD and CD's but it did not say VCD's. It's kind of a proprietary format that was only really popular overseas. The PHILIPS DVP5140 is one that I just found that does play pretty much everything.

I just don't know what program and format to use so I can listen on my AVH-P4900


It can play Audio CD, MP3, WMA, including formats like Video CD (VCD), DVD, Div. It has 4 channels, with In-Dash Player, In-Dash Monitor. Th inputs it recognizes & plays are DVD Video, VCD, SVCD, DVD-R, DVD-RW, CD (Audio), CD-R, CD-RW. In the radio you can hear AM, F. It has a 6.5 inch dipla. A quote from their website reads "The AVH-P4900DVD lets you take your digital music files with you, whether they're MP3 or WMA format. Burn files onto one CD-R and play them in any mix you want. Use the touch-panel to easily navigate through your file and folder lists to find exactly the song you are in the mood for." I hope this is enough to answer your query!......sodeep

There is nothing wrong with it, it is set to only play in the region it was purchased from. That is how all DVD players are made, with regional settings. No repair is going to help, you just need a DVD player from the proper region to play those disc's.

Cd player reads disc error


maybe you need to change the optical eye now.
but first try to adjust the variable resistor/trimpot resistor.
try this options to your player.

(TIP)
if using a cd/vcd/dvd products, we only should play a cd/vcd/dvd dics without a bad scratches. the scratches are making the optical eye worn-out easily.

When playing DVD no sound but VCD sound OK.


dvd are up to 6 times the density of a cd there making the laser eye read much closer rings on the disks. so in other words its having a hard time reading dvd. the only thing you can do is take a cotton swap dipped in alcohol and open the tray look with a flashlight for a small optical eye in exact center of dvd player and rub lightly on it to remove dust build up or spray some canned air into the dvd youll hit it. try it again and if no sound again the computer cant keep up with the dvd or vise versa.
