No read on all DVDs inserted

Display shows the disc icon even when the tray is empty. When a DVD of any type is inserted, display says 'read' for a while, and then always ends up saying 'no read'.

Simple, lens have dirt or oil residue so just pop down to your nearest **** smith or radio shack & purchase appropriate cleaner.. test it when you get home & sure enough lens will be able to properly read discs again!!

Empty Tray


@Derekns74 How do you remove the switch? My C3000 also reads "EMPTY TRAY" constantly, even if the tray is empty and clean. It does not display the "EMPTY GROUNDS" error only "EMPTY TRAY"

If I remove the tray it display "TRAY MISSING" but whenever I insert the tray again, it reads "EMPTY TRAY"

On one occasion when our power went out, it fixed the machine, so that it stopped reading "EMPTY TRAY," but after a day or two it stopped working and displayed the same EMPTY TRAY error message again.

The display says, "insert disc",


Thank you for posting to Fixya.com and it is my pleasure to guide you.

1. The disc may be turned over. Insert the disc with the playback side facing down.

2. The disc may be dirty. Wipe it with the correct type rag.

Since you stated the display is showing then I take it the player is on and the chord is plugged in.

3. Is the disc completely centered in the tray? I have done that before.

4. Have you run the self-diagnosis function? If the Error code 'AACS ERR' shows then it is an "AACS read failure". Remove the protected disc. Then turn the unit off and wait a minute or two and back on.

Good luck and please post back that you are successful and give thumbs up if my solution has worked for you. If I can be more helpful just reply.

Had one for years but now it does not even want to spin a disc the disc loads ok but jirks not spins and then the display says :-NG DISC?


This will require a good clean on the inside, POWER OFF then remove the cover clean the plastic rack with rubbing alcohol and cotton bud.

If the DVD won't spin due to trapping inside the tray you will never be able to read the DVD check to see if the tray will insert and eject usinf the button,

NOTE : never push the tray to close this can cause the tray to jump its guide dogs leg which is used to lift he head to the DVD after it has been inserted.

The dvd player part of this unit doesn't work. When you insert a dvd it makes a sound like a dull beep as the unit appears to try to read the dvd. Then "Read" comes up on the display then there is a...


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. When a Panasonic is giving "no read" and there are loud "clunking" or "chugging" noises this usually indicates that the lens is dirty or has failed. Other problems may include a failing or failed Digital PCB or some problem with the ribbon cables from the DVD Drive to the Digital PCB (on 2006 models such as the DMR-EZ models there is some problem with the ribbon cables to the DVD Drive on-board controller board.
Please check this picture for ribbon cable connections--

Cannor Read DVDs


I have a similar issue to you, except that my dvd drive will only recognize a disc if I have booted up into windows with it in the tray...once in windows it will still think it has the first disc in no matter what disc i insert. If i boot up with no disc then it will never read it unless I follow the steps below.

A solution I found by pure frustration and trying all sorts of things is to eject the DVD tray and leave it opened, then right click on the dvd drive in 'my computer' and select the 'hardware' tab...then select the drive and click 'properties'.
A new window should open. Select 'volumes' and click 'populate'. Now close the window and insert the disc you wish to read, close the tray and repeat this process. Windows should now recognize the disc you inserted

Alot of trouble I know, but it works for me. Hope this helps.

ekimt,

Yes, it would not recognize any type of disc. The disc icon was always present on the display even though no disc was inserted. Also, mine went out while recording from HDD to DVD. Panasonic had mine repaired in two business days and it' s working great.
