Cd player plays first track then skips the rest


You most likely have a bad Optical Pickup, meaning a bad laser. They loose output as they age. Sorry to say, it doesn't pay to repair it.

Tip

CD skipping? DVD won't play?


Try a different disc - if other discs play then it's the disc itself.<br /><br />Don't try fixing the disc yourself with "YouTube solutions" like toothpaste or Vaseline etc etc.<br />Go to your local video / game rental establishment. Most of these places have a machine that resurfaces the disc (by shaving a thin layer off of it just a bit deeper than the scratches) making it read like it was new.<br />Usually it just costs a couple bucks, and some places will even do it for free (good advertisement!).<br />Pawn shops often have these machines too. Call around.<br /><br />

My Sony DAV-DZ720 Theater System not read the some dvd disc,.,i think problem is in lens system,..help me to fix lens pls,tanx


First try playing a CD. If that too skips you can clean the lens by opening it.Dust on the lens will effect all types of disc and will not be selective.
You can buy a lens cleaning disk from any Cd store and play it to clean.
The cleaning action takes place only if the disc rotates, so keep the top lid off to see if it rotates.
If you have crossed 500 hours of playing may be the lens is due for a change.

I put a dvd in but the system is not reading it. i've tried other dvds and tried all 5 disc changers, but my system is still not reading any dvds. what is wrong?


Hi, what makes the DVD not to be able to read the inserted DVD's is because the lens of the player is too weak to spin the dvd plate to play.

You will need to use a DVD Lens cleaner to clean up the lens inside the player to clean up dirt disturbing it from not playing any DVD cd.

If after cleaning the Lens and still does not play,you will need to replace the Lens..

Have a nice day..

There error reads that "this type of disc cannot


The Systems that I have is an SC-HT70/SC-HT65 which appears to be almost the same type of system. My system cannot play the following disc:
*DVD with an unsuitable region number
*DVD-audio
*PAL system discs
*DVD-ROM
*DVD-R
*DVD-RAM
*+RW
8DIVX Video Disc
*CD-ROM
*VSD
*CDV
*CD-G
*CVD
*SACD
*SVCD
*Photo CD etc.
Therefore, you will not be able to play any of these in your system.
If you are in the USA or Canada, you can play any DVDs that is marked with the number 1 or ALL.
Hope this helps

Place DVD in any slot and it says "reading disc" then "no disc"


When you get no disk error, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will start operating on certain disks better than others.

In that case you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD/DVD will not be read, therefore the error.

Whe this problem is starting you may be able to read only CD, DVD or Blue ray, or for example only DVD-R and not +R , or only to read and not to write and so on. After more prolonged usage , often the unit goes losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all.

If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens problem.

Try first using a CD/DVD or Blue ray lens cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does not work you will need to disassemble the drive , and clean lens directly with q tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the CD/DVD lens, or the whole drive unit.
