Hello,
Try these solutions: 1. Check to make sure the discs you are using are not scratched or dirty, if so clean them with a soft cloth and a small amount of rubbing alcohol on the rag. 2. Remove the cover from your dvd player by using a Phillips screw driver > Then push the eject button > Once the cd tray is out unplug the dvd player from the outlet > Take a few cu-tips and dip them lightly in a small amount of rubbing alcohol and with a small light source look in the carriage and you will see a small round glass looking bubble > This will be your laser optical lens, gently clean off the optical lens with the cu-tip moistened with alcohol > Repeat cleaning with a new cu-tip a few times > Dry off the optical lens with a dry cu-tip and let the dvd player air dry for 1 minute > Replace the cover and plug your dvd player back in and check to see if it plays the dvds.
You might want to invest in a optical lens cleaning disc which are cheap to buy. You should clean your optical lens at least once a month or as needed.
Hope this helps and let me know if it doesn't.

Player will not read discs. keeps saying "no disc" when discs are inserted. Worked fine until today.


Easy option first , clean laser with a laser cleaning disc ,if that doesn't work then (I assume you have tried more than 1 disc). a laser won't read a dirty disc, you may have a laser mechanism fault ie laser sticking in its tracks. you could try oiling the cradle that the laser sits on. other than that it is a costly repair.

Was working earlier today, now won't. Turns on


hello,
i will suggest you check the lens if it is still working properly. then you can tell why it seems to be giving such fault.

clean the lens and try it again.

the disc you are trying could also be a problem so you make sure the disc is ok before trying to play it on your dvd.

goodluck

I just solved my issue. My 2 year old son set the AV switch on the side of the player to 'in'. I switched it to 'out' and now it works fine.
