Re: my dvd player will not read any disc
Need more info on problem to solve it. Depending on age and amount of use, it could be just a stuck lazer, blocked lazer, gears on lazer track may need 'grease'(very little, applied only to gear teeth, then move the lazer manually(very lightly-do not touch lens) . Or the lazer itself could be burnt out. You don't give enough symptoms to go any further.

Coming up bad Disc means your DVD player is not able to read the discs. There may be some dust on the lense ( optical unit ). If you can clean it please do it. If it does not work even after cleaning, the lense is bad and needs replacement.
I don't know about that model in particular, but in the rare occasions where I've felt the need to clean a disc player lens, I've always taken apart the chassis and taken the lid off the disc assembly, which is usually a separate box with various wires coming out of it to connect to the circuit board in the main chassis.
With the lenses exposed (after taking it apart), I spray some glasses lens cleaner on a lint-free glasses cleaning cloth, and gently wipe the moist end of the cloth over the lenses, using the weight of the cloth only to contact the lenses.
The lenses are held by a very delicate mechanism for focusing by a magnetic field, and if you touch them directly you will very likely damage them and cause the focus to go permanently bad. DON'T TOUCH THEM.
Also, the laser output can damage your eyes. Make sure it's unplugged when servicing it.
If you've never opened up an electronic appliance, don't try to open it to clean it. You'll probably break the whole thing if you don't have experience.
You can try one of those cleaning discs but I don't know if they really work. It's hard to get something close to the lenses without damaging them.
Most DVD players display that kind of error when unable to read data on you disc media. Try other DVD disc if that post the same problem. A new one will test if it is the unit problem or the media disc problem. If it post the same problem on a disc that runs well on other players then your player probably has a dirty lens. You can clean the lens using commercially available DVD lens cleaner on the market.
I had a similar problem with my Yamaha DVD player which just kept displaying "reading, reading and reading"- eject-no disc or disc error. I took it into be repaired and was told it needed a new optical lense-cost $120.00 plus fitting.I was told not viable to fix. Not convinced I had a look on the internet and a suggestion given was to buy a can of Air Spray from **** Smith,$14.00 later and blowing the proverbial out of the inside of the unit-Bingo it works for about an hour and then, away we go again-reading reading reading - eject-no disc. Back to the internet and i found a DVD technician who advised the more often than not the problem is a dirty optical lense, and he has saved 100's from the grave by the following method. The most effective way to clean it is with a cotton wool bud soaked in Isopropyl Alcohol and give it a good rub without damaging it. I got the Isopropyl alcohol for $12.00 a 250 ml bottle from the local chemist and did what was suggested. IT WORKED and is still going- not sure for how long but the bonus is I can use the remainder for rubbing down my tired old body, as after shave or a refresher, in addition to fixing DVD's so not all is lost. It's worth a try considering I was going to throw the Yamaha away. Thanks to the internet and the good people who share their knowledge I am happy again.
Hopefully it will work for you. If not, don't forget the other uses for the alcohol.
hi... the problem might be in ur dvd... If ur dvd is perfect and u found that ur player has some problem means the best solution is that to clean up ur dvd player lense which plays a vital role in reading ur dvd when u insert into it...For cleaning up ur lense all u need is a lense cleaner dvd available in electronic shops.. u can purchase it and play that dvd as normal one.. ur problem will get solved..
There are a few different cleaning kits out there these days for DVD or CD players. I would recommend one that actually has fibers on it so the it brushes the lense of the DVD player. These cleaning kits can be found just about anywhere. Have you tried to clean it with anything?
