If you have the ability to take the drive apart - you can take a child's medicine dropper to the red laser reader - most of the time it will sink back into the drive - its the little round thing that actually reads the cd..give it a try you just need to pull it out with a dropper

When I load a dvd into the player, after a while it says "no disc" and nothing plays.


Do the "bad" disks work on some other DVD player?
Or, do the "bad" disks work on some computer with a DVD drive?
Dirty disks with lots of greasy fingerprints?

I load a dvd in the sylvania sdvd 9009 player and it says no disc after loading


If the DVD loads, there should be something on the display that indicates it is being read (maybe a spinning disc icon). If it tries to read, then displays the "no disc" icon it means either that particular DVD can't be read or the drive has failed. If you try another DVD and get the same result, you can be pretty sure the drive has failed

Have panasonic dmr-ez485v error message -NO READ- changed disks used prerecorded movie same as my recorded disks, hit reset - still no change


I just saw the date on this message and realize that it was awhile ago. I assume that you have dealt with it by now... So for others who are trying to fix their DVD player:

I have a DMR-EZ485V DVD player and just started getting the error message "No Read." I couldn't find an answer on the internet and finally called Panasonic's customer service, (there is no charge 1.800.211.7262). Since it says "No Read" to everything--store-bought DVDs, burned DVDs, CDs; AND when there is nothing in there (it acts like it is trying to read when the tray is empty), the customer service rep thinks that I am having a lens issue. It either needs to be cleaned (can pick-up a product at Best Buy or Radio Shack) or, if that doesn't work, the lens needs to be replaced.

DVD drive will not spin when loading


you need to first replace the laser mechanism, if that doesnt work you then need to replace the printed circuit board that conects to the laser meachanism.

Acer aspire 2930 DVD player only opens some dvds


Try Media player classic under k-lite codec pack. Then open video files on the dvd. If it doesn't help try another codec player. If nothing helps could it be that dvd player is not capable of multilayer dvd reading.

DVD player problem


you allneed to make sure the disc is spinning in the player you should hear it whirr as ut builds speed listen closely to it and keep a hand on it to feel when the disk quits if it starts. its supposed to spin v ery fast do you think you could tell by the sound of it if its spinning fast. some times they make a clicking noise because the drive mounts have slid down in the case and allows the disk to rub or tap the case. please let me know what you find out. this is for all three problems. let me know the results so i can further advise you.
