Question about Televison & Video

Open Question

My LG DA 3520 DVD player has began to stutter/pause intermittently through a film. It seemed to do this when it got warm, or half way through a film. Now the player fails to load a DVD and displays 'DISC ERROR' before giving the DVD back.

I'm afraid you are dealing with a weakened Laser on the unit. The cost vs. benefit ratio of fixing this unit is not worthwhile.

You will find that there are newer versions of this device on the market less expensive than what you paid for the unit you have now.

SOURCE: dvd player doesn't recognize dvd's of any kind

jusguessin should call Toshiba quickly. The units have a 1 year warranty. Do not open the unit or it will void your warranty (I know, I do Toshiba warranty repairs on their recorders. If anything will make be void a warranty, it's a consumer who opens the unit and pokes around inside).

mooch, clean the laser head. I wish I could refer you to a FAQ because this is about the 10th time today I have written this.

Open the unit. Remove the DVD drive. Take the top off of the DVD drive. Clean the lense with a q-tip with a little windex on it. Work the head up and down gently. Reassemble and test. If problem presists, go buy a new one.

I too have this same problem on my current DVD player, AND strangely enough I had the same problem on my previous player.
Previous player was made multi region and was a Sony S660 (I think that was the model number).
My current DVD player is a Denon and was £550! It is also made multi region and has the same problems! I don't get it!

SOURCE: Denon 3910 won't load some dvds/cds and vibrates while trying.."disc error"!

I have the Denon 2900 (about 4 years of use) and until recently, suffered from the same (growing) problem. CD's were very difficult to start/read. I recently found advice which I tried and was succesful with. It was manually cleaning the laserlens. I took away the outer housing by unscrewing all off the on top (6), side (4) and the back (2) bolts. After that I took out the top plate of the laserunit which took two very little screws taking out. Now you are looking at the cd-tray with the lens. Take a very soft and clean cloth and moisten it a little bit with clean water (be very carefull with the moistening, don't allow any waterdrop to come out of the cloth into the laserlens while cleaning! Carefully clean the lens and dry it with a dry part of the same cloth. Replace the top plate and the outer housing and the player will recognize the discs like it's new again. Good luck!

Try cleaning both the disk and the lens of the dvd player. Sometimes even a little bit of dust can make your dvd player go ballistic. Brands like Sony,Philips and LG are very sensitive. If anything else fails, you can take it to a repair shop to find out if the lens isn't cracked or the LED isn't responding while trying to read the disk.

Bose 321 has began to stutter with a DVD, it's a slight stutter but renders it unviewable.


If you still have the receipt in the box that it came with I recommend you take it back to the store since like there's too many dust in it and it wasn't properly taken care of during shipping I would suggest you return it if you got it from the store or ship it back that you got it online and complain

Jerky/Pausing DVD playback on 27" Akai DVD/TV Combo


I have seen many issues with these internal dvd players, I will recommend that you pick up a nice inexpensive walmart dvd player and hook it in to the red. green blue connections, that is really the best solution, the players in all these units fail within 4 years. hope this helps have a great weekend

Playback stutter


Realplayer is ok for small .wav files and for browsing videos on the internet, but for watching a dvd i would use either Power DVD or Windows media player as they have all the supported sound and video codecs Some media players have truoble reading different dvd depending on how they were burned or the file quality.
