When you get No Disc, it normally occurs for one of two reasons. Either dust has built up on the lens of the laser mechanism, or the operating voltage of the laser has drifted off slightly due to heat and age. Of course, occasionally there are actual failures of components, which cause this, but these are the main two reasons.


Tools required by this guide are (not all are required for all parts however):


1) A normal sizes star (Phillips) screwdriver.

2) A very small Phillips screwdriver.

3) A small, flat screwdriver.

4) Some isopropanol alcohol (IPA)

5) A few cotton buds

6) A little mechanical grease. (I've used Vaseline before)

7) A can of compressed air.

8) An oscilloscope.

Cleaning the laser lens

1) Remove any CDs from the unit and unplug all leads and memory cards. Turn the unit upside down and use the small, flat screwdriver to pop out all the little plastic and rubber screw covers.

2) Take your normal sized Phillips screwdriver and unscrew all the screws.

After removing them the step is to clean the laser lens

Take a cotton bud and careful place some of the alcohol on it (but not so much that it is dripping everywhere). This alcohol is the same (or similar) to the small bottle of alcohol which is in audio and video cassette cleaning kits. This is probably the best way to locate a source. Locate the lens (the circular glass part) and very gently rub the cotton bud around the lens in circular motions for about 30 seconds, being very gentle. Once done, flip the cotton bud over and dry the lens with the other end for about 10 seconds.
But if otherwise you will need to change the lens to a new one .
Take care.....

I had this problem. your disc may be scratched. There are numerace ways to clear scratched discs. I myself use anti-frizz hair serum to smooth out the scatches and now my disc plays perfectly. Try putting your xbox somewhere it won't pick up vibrations and never move an xbox with a disc inside it

I put a game in my PS2 and it scratches it. Whats wrong?


Your disc trey or disc spindle is off balance maybe see if your trey is out of line and bend it slight back inline. Or if its the piece that spins your disc it might need replacing or a good push back down.

Psp


is it a scratching scrapping noise?

as some UMD cases, as in the plastic thing around the disc colapse or come apart this stops the disc spinning properly.

Check the plastic on the UMD... click any sides together that may be loose / or make sure the case isnt pushing on the disc.

Also open the PSP, hold it upside, gently shake it & blow into it.

Put the UMD back in & try again.
