Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players

1 Answer

The laser lens of the DVD Player in my Home Theater system is died. It does not throw any light. Is there any way to change the lens or only change the DVD player unit in the home theater system? My Home theater system is Philips HTS3400. I'm pretty happy with its receiver the only bothering thing is: its DVD Player . It is not in warranty now and service charge is more than its original value. Please suggest how can I change DVD Player unit only from my home theater system.

This happend to me before on a toshiba 2 disk dvd changer it i searched on the net for lasers but it was about 30 to 40 dollars i got lucky and found a single disk toshiba in a trash and dicided to have a look i opened both and they looked the same so i swapped it out and it worked my suggestion is if its an old player and u have a little money scrap it u can buy a cheap walmart brand for about 30-40 dollars and if ur a home theater freak and have hdmi ports on your tv and if your tv is 1080p the get an upconvert dvd player which tranforms your standard dvd to 1080p which is a way better than regular dvd but not as good as blue ray

How do i fix the dvd blue ray 3d player to load the dvd?


Most likely the laser is failing , try an audio CD if it works then it is a bad laser. A cd has much less data to read.

It sounds that the laser pickup unit to your HTS is faulty. Contact any service technician to replace it. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Viewing it in "Mosaic" or "Magazine" will make surf easy. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. Do a search by type in the brand name of your device at its search box.

It plays CDs, but not DVDs even after the laser lens cleaner that fixed my home theater dvd. When you load in a dvd, it clicks three times, says load, clicks three more times, then has disk error message....


Time to get a new one, probably. The laser for DVDs is different for CDs so the DVD laser or a component in that section has probably failed and at today's prices, get a new player with morre features for less than you paid for this one. You can keep it for CD playing. The fact that it plays CDs means most of the player works except the DVD laser circuit. You might look at the lasers with a magnafying glass (Unplug for 1 hour before that look) to see if you can see the 2 laser lenses and one is dirty. Not very likely fixable but it is a free try. Good luck.

My Onkyo DVD/CD Player CP704 plays CD's with no problem, but DVD's are a problem: I get "loading" but does not play and I get "no disc" on many occasions. What gives, any solutions? Thank you.


Laser Beam could be dirty, use disc cleaner or clean the eye beam on the laser pickup but the Laser ickup could also be bad, Mats has them
1-800-628-1118 First try Cleaning Eye Beam.

Can not play disc


You can try a lens cleaning kit. If it is the kind that comes as a disc all it will do is lightly brush the lens which may not remove all the debris. If you disassemble the player you can easily get to the laser lens. It will usually be fairly accessible once you remove the DVD case. Sometimes it may be located within another box that needs to be disassembled before you can gain access to the laser. The laser unit will be located on a rail system and will have a small clear lens about the diameter of the eraser on a pencil. You can gently clean it with a cotton swab and lens cleaner or rubbing alcohol works just as well. Try that first before buying the lens cleaning kit or replacing the player.

Toshiba reads no disc


Dust infiltration is a likely culprit. Unplug the unit, open the case. Take a cotton swab and wet it with a small amount of glass cleaner. Gently wipe the laser lens several times without applying pressure, then use the other end to finish cleaning it off and to dry it. Often, so much dust gets inside these units and coats the objective lens it can't see the disc anymore. Give it a try, might work after this operation. I've fixed many CD & DVD players this way. If that doesn't work, take a can of compressed air and blow out dust from inside the laser by pointing the nozzle to the open space between the lens and the lens cover. Hold the can at least three inches away so as not to damage the internal workings of the laser assembly. Several short/sharp bursts of air might dislodge dust that has accumulated inside the laser housing.
