Re: won't read dvd's
If your Player is 3 years Old plus. I,d assume the laser head is Gone ( Burnt Out )
Try playing a CD ?
Your only other option, is to purchase A CD/DVD laser head cleaning kit. in the hope that, the laser head is just dirty.
The best method of cleaning the laser head is as Follows.
After removing the appliances Mains Power plug ( from the Wall outlet )
And taking off the Top or outer Casing, allowing access to the players Laser-Eye.
apply a small amount of alcohol or petroleum fluid, to a cotton swab ( Bud ) gently wipe the moistened ( Not Soaked ) bud accros the glass laser eye, several times. re-assemble the casing, and try a dvd.
If this does,nt work. you can safely assume the laser or laser power Diode, has burnt out. And time for a new Player.

Re: won't read dvd's

Check for scratches on the disk surface - these can inhibit the player from reading a disk correctly.
Some players will read olny certain type(s) of disks. This is an issue mostly for disks created on a computer, not those that are prerecorded and available for purchase or rental that contain movies and music.
As stated above, dIsks created on a home computer may not always be readable on a home player. Re-writeable and recordable types that are not listed as being compatible will not work. Check your manual to see which types are acceptable and not. DVD types are: DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW and DVD-RAM CD Types are CD-R, CD+R and CR-RW. Older home CD and DVD players generally work with "-R" types and the newer players with both "-R" & "+R" types. "-RW" and "-RAM" types are the least likely to be readable in home players.
Additionally, most players require that disks created on a home computer be "finalized". This is an extra step that isn't required by most CD / DVD drives in computers. Just because it works in your computer doesn't mean it will work in your home player. If you're using compatible media and still not able to read disks, check your CD / DVD recording software options to enable finalization.
follow this steps, and use the common sense.God bless you If the player skips, make sure that the DVD disc is not dirty or scratched..Use the cleaner disk buy it from R. Shack.
If the tray won't open or close properly, check the belt for dirt or
wear. Then check the tray for misalignment. If needed, remove, clean,
lubricate, and reinstall the tray following the instructions in the
I just saw the date on this message and realize that it was awhile ago. I assume that you have dealt with it by now... So for others who are trying to fix their DVD player:
I have a DMR-EZ485V DVD player and just started getting the error message "No Read." I couldn't find an answer on the internet and finally called Panasonic's customer service, (there is no charge 1.800.211.7262). Since it says "No Read" to everything--store-bought DVDs, burned DVDs, CDs; AND when there is nothing in there (it acts like it is trying to read when the tray is empty), the customer service rep thinks that I am having a lens issue. It either needs to be cleaned (can pick-up a product at Best Buy or Radio Shack) or, if that doesn't work, the lens needs to be replaced.
To solve this Code 10 error, follow these instructions: NOTE: After removing these registry keys and rebooting, it may be necessary to reinstall any CD or DVD recording applications. 1) Close all open programs
2) Click on Start, Run, and type REGEDIT and press Enter
3) Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders
folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry.Look
for any of the following names in the right hand column.
5) If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete 6) After deleting the keys, close the Registry Editor 7) Reboot your computer 8)
Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives

theyellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.
Sansui VRDVD4005 will record DVDs provided they are DVD-R NOT DVD+R. I have one of these for 3 going on 4 years and I took it apart and cleaned the dust off the magnetic hub and that worked for awhile but (2-3 months) now I'm having trouble finalizing again. Someone on this site said it needs 8x NOT 16x disks ... 'cause it's an older unit ... I'm checking it out in the users manuel. magicbbs
