THE UNIT DOES NOT READ DVD'S WHEN LOADED.


Hello,

the answer is "YES". You can replace the laser (lens), that's the only option you have left since cleaning the laser (lens) did not solve the problem. This shows that the laser (lens) is dead. You need a brand new one.

So go ahead and replace the laser unit, its a very good idea.

Good luck.

I have a Toshiba DVD Video Player Model SD 260. I


Hello, The problem could be dirt on the surface of the lens, you can clean this by removing the cover of the dvd player . Gently use a dry cotton bud to clean the lens because the lens is fragile. Insert the disc plate into the dvd player and press play, if it does not play try the second method. Ensure the cover of the player is open, connect the power plug to the mains socket and observe the lens if it beam a red light, Also check the ribbon cable use to connect the lens to the printed circuit board, then gently clean the lens with a dry cotton bud , insert the disc plate and press play to see if it play. If it does not play the disc, then this require a change of the lens

Dvd player will not play movies


Hello,

how long have you been using this player? The problem should be from the lens (laser).

The lens is weak and that's why it cannot read/load DVD's. The weak lens is the cause of he problem and not battery.

The lens reads the files/data on the disc inserted into the player and once the lens is weak, there is no way it would load Cd's.

Get a lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens, but if the lens still does the same thing even after using the lens cleaner, then it means you would have to change the whole lens completely to a brand new one.

By so doing your player would play all CD's with no problem at all.

Good luck.

Pansonic e 85h won't play recorded disc or finalize recorded discs also unable to play previously finalized discs, hdd is working and recording fine, what could be the problem on this dmr e 85h panasonic...


The symptoms sound like the laser needs cleaning adjusting or replacing by a qualified technician. If it is under warranty then you can return it. The only other thing youmight try is to open it and gently clean the laser lens with a q tip and a drop of alcohol if you know how. Otherwise get it professionally serviced.

Kind Regards

Can not play disc


You can try a lens cleaning kit. If it is the kind that comes as a disc all it will do is lightly brush the lens which may not remove all the debris. If you disassemble the player you can easily get to the laser lens. It will usually be fairly accessible once you remove the DVD case. Sometimes it may be located within another box that needs to be disassembled before you can gain access to the laser. The laser unit will be located on a rail system and will have a small clear lens about the diameter of the eraser on a pencil. You can gently clean it with a cotton swab and lens cleaner or rubbing alcohol works just as well. Try that first before buying the lens cleaning kit or replacing the player.

WRONG DISC ERROR WHEN PLAYING A DVD


HI,. this is a lens assembly fault. the lens is malfunctioning or, it may have stopped reading. this wrong disc code is just a universal warning that is concerning a fault if the main board doesn't receive any data(audio,video) when the disc is inserted.

Due to the integrated status of your unit, this will be a costly repair because, the entire assembly is combined together with the vcr section as well.

You will need to replace the entire assembly to fix this issue. the lens has burned out.

you can confirm my diagnosis by preforming a cleaning of the lens with a cleaning disc. if the unit continues to not read or play a CD after the cleaning, this will confirm my diagnosis.

Please rate and have a great day:)
