Disconnected and reconnected the leads.
Switched it on and off a few times.
Opened and closed it a few times.
Now working?? Been faulty for weeks.
May turn out to be an intermittent problem.

DVD player will play store bought dvd's but will say unknown disc when I insert one from Netflix.


Is it possible that this is a Blu-Ray disc from Netflix? If so, It may not be able to be read on a standard DVD player.
Another possible reason for this is that the disc is somehow damaged and thus unreadable.
I'm afraid without seeing the disc I am unable to help you further.
Either way, might be time to complain to Netflix:

My 2 1/2 year old LG dvd/vcr recorder will play some dvds but will not play others. It says unknown disc. I was told to try a lens cleaner; I bought one and the lens cleaner says unknown disc as well. ...


Hi,

Your DVD /VCR says unknown disc because the
dvd which you have inserted is not of the supported format by player.

If you insert unsupported formats only it will say as unknown disc.This is not related with disc cleaners.

Please insert the supported formats and it will play the disc.

Thanx

Unknown disk error when putting disk in player.


hello,

when the disc player shows unknown disc error, it simply implies that the lens of the player is weak and cannot read the disc.

the solution is for you to try to clean the lens with a lens cleaner or better still replace the lens.

take care

Disc unknown


Not all media discs are playable in all machines.Not all formats are supported in all machines.Coppied and Bootleg discs will not play on expensive players.Dirty,figerprints,badly scratched,all will have problems.Use a disc cleaner (liquid,and fine cloth) to remove scratches.Buy a $ 25-35 cheap player they play anything.Good Luck.

After disc is loaded, it says "unknown disc."


Is it a pirated dvd? If it is, do you know some dvd players won't read pirated dvds? And if it isn't, then your dvd player may be dirty (the lens). For that you would have to buy a cleaning disk. You can get one at Radioshack. Or maybe what type of dvd type is it? Is it dvd-r, dvd-rw, or what? Some dvd players have trouble reading dvd-rw sometimes.

Hope this helps.

It keeps saying unknown disc,every time i put a disc in there every disc that i put in the player...it will not play it...it keeps saying Unknown-disc...including an audio-disc.


hi, try first to insert a clean up CD, and test your Cd or Dvd player with an original CD or Dvd, if the problem persist , your laser sense is defficient you have to go to fix it to a specialist.
hope this helps you

Dvd player gives unknown disc


thats because its region locked..do the following:

start the player without any DVD in it.
open the lid.
while the lid is open press 9,9,9,9,0
you should see region 0 displayed.
close the lid.

Your DVD player is now region free.

note:
replace 0 with 1 to 6 at to set the wanted region number if needed.
do let me know if it worked.

Dvd "unknown disc" message coming up


Have you tryed to use a lens cleaning disc yet. The laser lens on these players and recorders alike, must have the lens cleaned every oince in awhile. If that does not help, most likly you have a bad laser pickup assembly and you will need to replace the plaer as to have that repaiered, you could buy a new unit. Good Luck
