It would be a very bad idea for you to try and fix this yourself, unless you have some experience with these type of systems. They are difficult to take apart and the problems with the disc player could be a lot of different things. You really should just take it to a service center, they may be able to fix it for about $100, depending on just what is causing this problem and the rates they charge. The DVD/CD mechs in these units are very difficult to diagnose and then repair. I have been repairing car and home audio systems for almost 18 years and can fix just about anything, but I do not like working on these, they are that difficult to repair.

The dvd is not loading and will not play. the cds are working fine.


Hi,

how long have you been using this player? I suspect the laser (lens) of the player. I think the laser (lens) is weak that's why it cannot read data/files on DVD discs.

To confirm if actually its a laser problem, insert an Audio CD into the player and see if will play. If it plays, then obviously, your laser (lens) is weak. But if it doesn't play Audio CD, then it might still be the laser (lens) or a mechanism problem.

Get a lens cleaner, use it to clean the lens. If that doesn't solve the problem, get a screw driver, open the player's cover so that you can gain access to the lens, use a cotton board to clean the surface of the lens. This should clean dust or dirt that might be on the lens.

If non of the above solves the problem, then know that you need to replace the laser to a brand new one.

To replace the lens, remove the bad laser, use it as a sample to get exactly the same type and do the replacement. Note that replacing a laser (lens) needs a professional touch, so if you cannot replace the laser, get it to a repairman to fix it for you.

Once this us done, your player will play all DVD discs again.

Regards.

The Jensen dvd player won't play all dvds. It says dad disk on brand new disks. Does anyone know how to make it read all dvd's.


New player? Under warranty? Take it to whoever installed it. Sounds like a weak laser, or a laser alignment problem. Could also simply be a dirty laser lens, but proper cleaning requires disassembly (those laser cleaning discs are hit-n-miss, and I've seen them actually damage the laser pickup, so I do not recommend them).

Avic-n2 won't read the navigation disks...


If it play cd's but not not dvd's or navi disc then your laser is "tired" or out of alignment. If it does not play any type of disc then it needs a new laser pick unit. A capable tech should be able to re-align or replace the laser pick up unit for about $75 to $150. Contact me if you need it perfome. My number is 801-414-4566.

Cd dvd wont play


Many of the older DVD and CD players will not play disks recorded on a computer. This has to do mainly with the laser optical response.

There were several manufactures that manufactured their laser unit with a built in filter that would not allow their player to read non pressed CD disks (disks burned with a home computer).

When buring DVD's or CD's, use the slowest possible speed for the burn to have the highest readablity and least data errors possible for the medium.
