You have two options. One buy a replacement deck that will only take a phillips screw driver and about ten minutes to swap out or buy an LG IDE pc drive and swap out the lens. The first option will cost anywhere from $ 30 to $ 200. The second will cost from $ 10 to $ 20 but takes about 20 minutes to swap out the laser unit. I always do the second option. You can use any LG pc drive with the numbers GSA-H**n or GSA-41**b. I used GSA-H10n and GSA-4165B but you can buy any pc drive except those with the letter "L" which designates LightScribe. Those units don't seem to work. When you swap out the laser you may have to use the circuit board in the pc drive but that's also easy to exchange.

I get a no disc message on my LG RC897T when I try to play a factory disc, however it plays any disc that I have burned on my computer. It also plays cds fine.


Hello,
how long have you been using this player? I suspect the laser (lens) of the player. I think the laser (lens) is weak that's why it cannot read data/files on DVD discs.
To confirm if actually its a laser problem, insert an Audio CD into the player and see if will play. If it plays, then obviously, your laser (lens) is weak. But if it doesn't play Audio CD, then it might still be the laser (lens) or a mechanism problem.
Get a lens cleaner, use it to clean the lens. If that doesn't solve the problem, get a screw driver, open the player's cover so that you can gain access to the lens, use a cotton board to clean the surface of the lens. This should clean dust or dirt that might be on the lens.
If non of the above solves the problem, then know that you need to replace the laser to a brand new one.
To replace the lens, remove the bad laser, use it as a sample to get exactly the same type and do the replacement. Note that replacing a laser (lens) needs a professional touch, so if you cannot replace the laser, get it to a repairman to fix it for you.
Once this us done, your player will play all DVD discs again.
Good luck.

Returns error message :Unknown Disc. Please Check Disc Again" The DVD disc plays on other DVD players with no problem.


Problem may be reset needed, or lens need cleaning, or dvd recoreder worn out. Reset is pull the plug from the wall for 5 minutes. Turn it back on after reset to load firmware again, may work after that.. TDK makes lens cleaner. LG uses fan so, dirt can get into dvd recorder lens. If the tray moves out wiggly, laser assembly may move wiggly too. Replace dvd recorder which is a dvd+-rw regular ide unit from computers.

My dvd player plays cds but wont play dvds says disc error or unknown disc


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 also what's making it says "disc error" or "Unknown disc". It can still play Cd's because, Cd's does not contain large files, unlike DVD'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 DVD's with no problem at all.

Good luck.

DVD Player stops reading disc Error message :


usually this happens when lens cannot read the the disc. Due to few reason 1 Your disk is scratched 2 Your DVD lens is covered with dust 3 You need to replace DVD lens
Try another few CD/DVD to rectify whether there is any problem with dvd you are trying to play
if this error occurs on all the dvd you played then the most likely proble is with your DVD lens either its coverd with dust use Disk cleaner if not you got to replace a new DVD lense as per model

LG V181 DVD player/vcr combo doesn´t read de DVD´s


You need to go inside and clean the lens yourself with Servisol video 40. You might need to wipe it with a cotton bud etc. Allow it to dry before checking. Repeat it several times if it doesn't clear up first time.
PS check the lens for damage with a magnifiying glass! First!!

Toshiba TV Combo MW24FP1, DVD player doesn't work on some discs


This is a common problem for all combo units. The high voltage of the TV section attracts large amounts of particulate dust from the air and often it collects inside the DVD unit. The best way to deal with this is to clean the lens of the DVD unit u sing a cotton swab and alcohol. The store bought "cleaners" MAY work, but that is rare. These cleaners are nothing but small brushes embedded into a disc. They attempt to brush off hte dust. This rarely works. Open up the unit (if you feel comfortabel in doing so) to access the DVD section. Remove the top cover and carefully clean the lens. That should resolve the problem.
