Hey WeiesBlitz,

There may be a number of reasons why you may be encountering this problem, but there are a couple of quick solutions that may always try before seeking repairs on the player.

First, I would suggest making sure that the DVD's being used have been cleaned and are dust-free. Imperfections or impurities of any kind on the surface of a CD or DVD may prevent the laser in your player from being able to read, or even recognize the media inserted. You should be able to clean the DVD by using a soft and dry, lint-free (typically microfiber) cloth. Remember to try using gentle, outward strokes that run from the inner ring of the disc directly to the outer edge.

Second, you can always try cleaning the lens of the player itself using a commercial cleaning kit. Many retailers (including your local Best Buy™ store) may sell kits that clean lenses when inserted into your player like a normal DVD. Please keep in mind that not all DVD players are designed to function with these cleaning kits, and that you should always refer to your owner's manual for any possible warnings against the use of such products.

Should these suggestions fail resolve the problem, you may wish to try using other DVD's from your film library in the player. If other discs function normally, the non-functioning disc may be damaged. If using other discs results in the same error message, the player may be in need of physical repairs.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

When I insert a DVD disc I get the message "cannot read disc". The DVD player will play an audio CD but not the video. DVD player is a JVC Model #XV-N320.


Hi,

Good day. The message your getting only tells you that the Dvd your trying to play have a lot of scratches already that makes it unreadable for your dvd player. You can try to wipe the dvd first then try it again. If it doesn't work then that means the dvd unusable. Hope this information help a bit in resolving your question. Thanks for using fixya and have a great day

Dvd player says no disk


does it read other disks?
try a few difference DvD's.
if other disks work, the disk you want to read is broken.
if other disks do not work, your dvd player is broken and you should get a new one or contact JVC if it is still under warranty.

  • Check the DVD player to ensure that you do not have a DVD disc inserted into the device. Press the "Eject" button and lift out any DVD present in the device.
  • Turn off your JVC DVD player.
  • Unplug the device from the power source.
  • Examine the front or rear of your DVD player and note the model number.
  • Reset your particular device using the "DVD Reset Procedures" documentation provided by JVC (see Resources). Cross-reference your particular device's model number with the instructions provided within the reset procedure documentation

    My JVC DVD player sometime does not read a DVD disk that was played in it before in it or it has just played?? this is driving me nuts!!!! an ideas... pls...


    It's an anticopy feature. JVC extensively uses sony electronics. And Sony is the anti copy king of retardedness. I've permanently stopped purchasing sony products for this reason. From dvd players, to video game consoles, and their records and movies (columbia). I've been doing this for 10 years and haven't really missed anything :/
