Problem with reading discs

I have had this player for about a year now. It started having problems gradually at first then worsened until it barely will recognize a disc anymore. When I put in a DVD, it doesn't matter if it's storebought, recorded, or a blank, the player will either not recognize that a disc is inserted or will say that there is a disc problem. I tested the discs in other dvd players and they work perfectly. Now it is to the point where i have to open and close the tray around 50 times or so for it to both recognize the disc and then be able to play it. Any solutions?

    I opened up the case on the DVD Recorder later that day that I posted the problem. I figured out that there was a problem with the motor that drives the tray to open and raises the lens and laser up to read the disc. I discovered that the rubber band that drives the motor was slipping, so I just replaced the rubber band on it with another one that I had. That completely fixed all the problems it was having.

Greetings,

Try a DVD lens cleaner first, if it doesn't fix the issue, the player is bound for service because lens die out.

Your symptoms are from running lean. Foam air filters put debris in carb jets. Check all the carb passageways and jets. Always start with a new plug.

Clean ? Repareable ? Trash ? Sell as is?


The laser pickup assembly is shot, over time the laser becomes weaker until it can no longer read the disc,it is time to retire the item, far cheaper to replace the entire unit.

My LG DR389 Recorder is nearly 2 years old, was working fine until recently, when it began not to read DVD discs recorded by it:the error message "cannot read disc due to disc error"shows up.I noticed by...


Hello,
A common reason for dvd players to give you error messages like "bad disc", "incorrect disc", "disc not readable", etc is that the optical lens needs to be cleaned. Dust will build up over time and prevent the device from reading the discs properly. Discs that are dirty and have finger smudges or if the discs have scratches will also cause these errors. There are some common mechanical problems that will also cause disc reading problems which you can find in my tips and tricks, just click on the link to read more about them.
TRY THE FOLLOWING STEPS FIRST:
You can clean your dvd player two ways, manually or by using a dvd cleaning disc. The following link will provide you with detailed information for doing cleaning the optical lens. I would suggest that you use the cleaning disc because it is easier and much faster. You can also clean your dvd discs themselves using the information here.
I hope that this information helps you solve the problem and you get many more years of use from your device. I wish you all the best. Please let me know if you need further assistance and I will do my very best to help you.

If you would not mind, please rate my help. I would greatly appreciate it. Thank You.

Staarting to not get past certain discs mennu screens.....


We have had out Toshiba P25-S509 for a very long time. It's a great laptop and watching DVDs with a wide screen was great; That is, until the CD/DVD player was no longer recognized by the computer. We took it in (still under warranty) to have it fixed, only to not work again after a couple of months.

Now YEARS have gone by and I have bought another Toshiba (M305D-S4831) which is great unless you try to reboot and it doesn't fully start up. That's for another review, not this one... So, back to the P25-S509 and YEARS later. We just received two 1GB memory cards, which are being used to replace the "stock" two 256 MB memory cards. Well, the computer is MUCH FASTER and THE DVD PLAYER FINALLY WORKS!!! Woo-Hoo! $98.00 investment in memory cards saved up from ditching the older Toshiba.

Hope this review helps someone out there that might have had the same problem.
