If this problem occurs only at this cd it's a disk problem. If it occurs on various disks try using a cd cleaner set, a wet one is better. Follow the instructions on the set. The main idea is to put one drip of the included liquid at the set (usually isopropyl alcohol) at a specific place (like small brush) on the disk surface and play this disk. This way the "brush" will clean up the laser lens and after that the cd player will be able to read the disks. BE CAREFULL not to put too much liquid on the "brush". In case you can, use a Q-tip with isopropyl alcohol to clean up the cd lens manually. In case this doesn?t solve your problem, the cd player needs laser lens replacement by a technician.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Why my dvd wont play on my player


Does that disc work on other players? Do other discs work on your player?

If you tell us more about the player, the disc, and what happens when you try to play the disc, we'll be able to make better guesses about what the problem is. Can you play other discs? Does that disc work in other players?

Not having specifics, here are some ideas, in the order in which they popped into my head:
1) That's a Blu-Ray disc and you have a DVD player.
2) The disc is dirty. Take a wet cloth (or paper towel), put a little dish soap on it, and gently swipe the shiny side of the disc from the center of the disc to the edge (don't wipe the cloth around and around the disc). Rinse the disc with cold water. Wipe with a soap-free wet cloth. Rinse again. Wipe with a dry cloth (or paper towel).
3) The disc is scratched. Some players handle scratched discs better than others. There isn't much you can do here. There are kits that can repair some scratches, but the kits aren't free, and they don't work a lot of the time.
4) You are putting the disc in upside-down. The side with the printing on it has to face up.
5) Your DVD player is dirty. Open the disc tray and blow as hard as you can into the player. Try not to blow any spittle into the player.
6) Your DVD player is broken.
7) Your disc is NTSC (Japan/US) and your player is PAL/SECAM (the rest of the world). Or vice versa.
8) There is some thing about region codes which is some kind of copyright protection scheme that means not all discs will work with all players.
9) Your disc is a CD, not a DVD. (I think most DVD players can play CDs, though.)
10) Your disc is DVD-ROM, meant to be used in a computer.

I have a onn dvd portable my daughter gave me while i was in hospital but it says no disc but the disc is in the dvd


This sounds like your player doesn't recognize the disc's format. You can either try the disc in a different player or try different discs in your player.

When your known good player shows "no disc" it means either the player has a problem recognizing the disc's format, or the disc is bad or maybe the lens has gotten dirty.

Player sys "no dics" when a disc is put in


Try the following, if that does not work, try a dvd "head" cleaner, if not then it needs to be repaired/or replaced, also make sure that the dvds you are playing is correct format...

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.

I have a Sony Psyc CD Walkman D-Ej010 and I will have a cd in there at it will play for a few minutes and then stop and say no-disc. What could be the problem?


There may be a couple of reasons why a NO DISC , DISC ERROR or INSERT DISC error may appear in the display of your CD player. Try doing the following steps to troubleshoot why the error is displayed:
  • For disc players with a HOLD switch, make sure to move the switch to the OFF position.
  • Verify that the disc being used is supported by the CD player. NOTE: CD players do not support VCD or DVD discs. In addition, some CD players do not support CD-R or CD-RW discs that are created by a CD burner. For information regarding disc compatibility with your player, refer to the operating instructions supplied with the product
  • Ensure a disc has been inserted into the player. Make sure that the disc is inserted correctly, with the playback side of the disc facing down on the disc tray.
  • If the disc still does not play, attempt to play a different, commercially-produced disc.
  • NOTE: If more than one of the commercially-produced discs do not play, verify whether the discs are extended-length discs. Some players are not able to play discs where the recording exceeds the standard 74 minutes. If the recording of the disc is longer than 74 minutes, it is possible that some of the specifications of that disc were compromised and therefore, the CD player will not recognize that disc.
  • If the disc is dirty with fingerprints or smudges, or if the disc is scratched or broken, the CD player may not recognize the disc.Clean the disc using a soft, dry cloth.
  • Properly reinsert the disc into the player.
  • Attempt to play the disc again.
  • Only press the PLAY button once. If the PLAY button is pressed more than once, the disc may stop playing.
  • If the disc is still not recognized, remove the disc and leave the CD player powered on for approximately one hour to resolve the possibility of moisture condensation inside the player.
  • Please use a Lens Cleaning disc and check if that helps.

If the issue persists, please click hear to locate the repair facility near your area.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any clarifications.

Player keeps saying no disc why?


there r two reasons that the player says no disc on display. 1)the disc which you insert in your player is really not redable.check out that disc in any other player and confirm whether its working or showing the same fault in other player too. 2)the disc may be perfectly all right, but the lens in the player which reads the disc is either got dusty or the lens is turned faulty. for dussty lens you can clean it with tissue paper and check out .but for the faulty lens its necessary to replace the lens.thats a costly issue.
