Hey deckerfam,

If you're encountering this problem with a good number of your CD/DVD's, you may want to try cleaning the lens of the player itself before resorting to any kind of drastic repair or replacement measures. Surface contaminants can often cause optical devices such as DVD players to fail to recognize any inserted media, and are generally among the most common reasons why such a failure may occur. This type of issue can typically be resolved by using an optical drive cleaning kit which you should be able to obtain through a local retailer, but please keep in mind that using one may not necessarily solve the problem.

Additionally, some DVD players may offer a "reset" button/feature that returns the player to its original factory settings. While I was not able to locate any instructions how to do so for this specific model, you may still be able to reset the player by disconnecting it from all power sources (including the battery) for one to two minutes before reconnecting them. I’d strongly suggest referring to your owner’s manual for more information however, as reset methods can vary from model to model.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Sony cmt-ne5 cd reads no disc


Then it is time to replace this player the Laser reader is defective or the disk doesn't spin due to a defective drive motor, in most cases they don't even sell parts for these players and they are not repaired unless under warranty.

My DVD player won't read, keeps saying disk error


In most cases when the CD does not play it is possible that the optical head is a suspect. Sometimes it might pick up ordinary audio CD but will not play other formats. This indicates that the optical head is weak and so there is no detection or scanning of the CD . If the optical is working the tracks will be read immediately but with no scanning the laser head can be defective.

The main motor will not work in some cases as unless the tracks are read the drive motor will not work with signal from the processor.
Sometimes certain cleaner disks will not be tracked to run for cleaning as it will not be read and so will reject. Hence it is ideal to manually clean the laser head eye using a cleaning swap /cotton bud with gentle pressure on the lens eye.
If there is no result then watch if the CD spins or tries to spin. If so the board seems to work unless a test is taken on the main board but the possibility of a defective optical head can be the suspected fault.
If any of the above seems otherwise we must recheck with possibilities of a malfunction of the main processor board

I am unable to read any cd/dvd in my ATAPI DVD DH16A6L SCSI dvd ROM, checked in device manager there shows no problem.


Hi arunp_1995,

  • If you are unable to read any CD or DVD in your DVD -RAM drive , the this could be an indication of a bad lens , or a lens that required clearning.
  • I would suggest you to get a lens cleaner from the market and use it to clean the lens, by just inserting it in the drive , letting it spin for some time , and then removing it.
  • After you go through this lens cleaning process you can test your DVD-RAM drive , whether it's reading any disks or not , if yes then , problem is resolved, if no , then I would suggests you to connect the DVD-RAM to your friend's computer and check if it's working or reading your cds and dvds, if not then you need to get it replaced within the warranty period if the drive is still under warranty , or get a replacement, as it could be that repairing would cost you almost around the cost for a new drive.

No Disc-alert. Will not play any DVD's. Will not run lens cleaner disc. disc's spin. thank you


Discs spinning after being loaded, that's a positive sign, but 'No READ' or 'No Disc' usually means the laser has failed or its output is too weak to read DVDs (DVD players tend to spin discs at a faster speed with a higher read rate than CD decks (obviously to read the video data as well as audio per disc, the optical/laser voltage rating is higher for DVD). So they are more likely to fail quicker than CD lasers but not always.

In short, since the unit is only a player, and may not be brand new or under any warranty, consider replacing it with a new unit or perhaps a DVD recorder (or even a Blu-Ray player - as they are becoming cheaper to buy now) - the cost of repairs/parts for this one would be higher than a new one and not economical, although you can always submit it to a service centre and get a quote (and a second opinion) on the likely cost(s) of parts/repairs involved. It won't be cheap, trust me.

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.

Error reading any dvd disks


Have you tried a DVD+/-RW ?

The noises that you are hearing will be the spindle motor trying to spin the DVD as the lifting presentation tray for the read/write head has not located, if the media is not spinning this will never be able to read the lead in on any DVD as it has not presented the disc in the correct place.

If is is out of guarantee then I suggest that you check to see if the DVD is spinning by removing the top cover with the power OFF then eject the tray and try to load the media a small touch of the DVD in the clockwise motion should cause the media to start spinning, this is for diagnosis only if this is the case then the spindle motor will need changing

Cd x-9 teac will load cd spin but not play lcd reading says 'no cd'


If this problem occurs only at this cd/dvd it's a disk problem. If it occurs on various disks try using a cd/dvd cleaner set, a wet one is better. Follow the instructions on the set. The main idea is to put one drip of the included liquid at the set (usually isopropyl alcohol) at a specific place (like small brush) on the disk surface and play this disk. This way the "brush" will clean up the laser lens and after that the cd/dvd player will be able to read the disks. BE CAREFULL not to put too much liquid on the "brush". In case you can, use a Q-tip with isopropyl alcohol to clean up the cd lens manually. In case this doesn’t solve your problem, the cd player needs laser lens replacement by a technician.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or add a testimonial.

Thanks and regards

DVD Player Not loading Movies

Wont read any disc


The problem is quite common.

When your console does not read any disk, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will start operating on certain disks better than others.

In that case you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD/DVD will not be read, therefore the error.

Whe this problem is starting you may be able to read only few CD, DVD. After more prolonged usage , often the PS start losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all.

If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens problem.

Try first using a CD/DVD cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does not work you will need to disassemble the PS, and clean lens directly with q tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the CD/DVD lens, or the whole drive unit.

before doing tis, contact Sony to check if the unit can be replaced or repaired by Sony, you find the number on the Console documentation.
