Hi.

If the problem happens with few disks, or with a single disk only, then the problem is the disk.

If you get the message with any disk, then it is probably caused by dirty lens.

Try first cleaning the lens with a cleaner disk kit. If that does not work , then the lens must be accessed and cleaned using QTips and cleaning solution.

Here broad procedure.When you get no disk error...

You could just have a dirty disc and that is why it isn't reading. Just open the disc tray and blow inside real hard about 3 times. This should clean off any dust on the lens. Or you can use a can of air duster.

To check region code, go into the menu settings, go to region. See if is set to 0

Says all DVD discs are "incompatible" how to fix


Unless there is a malfunction of the device, the only reason for all DVDs to come up as incompatible might be if the DVD's region codes do do match the code set into the player.

DVDs are coded for different areas of the world. If you bought the DVD from an online source it may not play on your format of DVD player.

When i put a dvd in my hitachi htdk185uk it says unknown disc what does this mean


Either a DVD with the wrong region code has been loaded, and your player doesn't recognise it, or you have inserted a disc which is either rewritable (or an incompatible format for your player), a blank DVD or CD, or the disc has not been finalised in a DVD recorder. It depends on the disc(s) you have, whether they are region coded or those using a compatible playback format (finalised DVD-Rs are the best as far as burned copies go).

Examples of incompatible formats for your player may include;
DVD-ROMs
DVD-RAMs (which are the wrong version/speed for your unit)
Mini-DVDs/CDs
CD-RWs
DVDs with a different region code to your player or rewritable discs

* When using shop-bought DVDs, including those purchased online, make sure their region code matches your player.

Portable dvd player when you put disc in machine it comes up with wrong disc display on screen is it the settings


It would more likely be the types of discs used. They are either of a region code not compatible with the player, contain foreign/unknown data, or they are unsupported formats. For example, if the player supports DVD-R playback, and you put a DVD-RW in, the player will generate 'wrong disc' message if the player cannot recognise the disc or the contents on it.

The disc formats/types that can be played should be outlined either on the unit itself or in the instruction manual (if you still have it). If the player shows that message even with genuine shop-bought DVDs then there is a defect within the unit, workshop attention may be required to fix it, but it could be costly.

'WRONG DISC' usually means the disc inserted is of a different region code to the player, or the wrong format (DVD-RW instead of DVD-R as exampled above). Try using different discs before going any further.

I can get the home page up on the tv where it says cyberhome. i put disc in and it says loading and then it says bad disc. what does a bad disc mean?


Assuming the player is fine, the 'Bad Disc' display message usually means either a disc which is an incompatible format (for example DVD-ROM) with this player; a disc which is a region that does not match that of the unit; or a defective/damaged disc. Check the discs prior to using them in this player and if they are burned discs, make sure they are a compatible standard format for playback.

This model is not region-free by default unless stated otherwise in the manual.

It will not play Dvd Error message says reject Dvd disc may not be playable type. One DVD began to play but kept jumping. Tried multple Dvd a Few fresh out of box


The device does not play.

Ensure that a supported disc is loaded in the player label-side up.

Ensure that the disc's region code matches the player's region code.

Ensure that the disc's rating level does not exceed the player's.

Ensure that the disc is not damaged or too dirty. Clean the disc or try another disc.

Moisture may have condensed inside the player. Remove the disc and leave the player on for
1-2 hours and then try again.

or lense may be dirty, try using a dvd 'head' cleaner. this may help situation, if continues, may be internal issue and need repair.

Message incorrect disc


It is possible that the DVD is not the right format, or that the region code is not correct for the region that you are in. See the PDF file below for more information.
