Please try to put in an ordinary audio CD track and see if this is detected. If yes the optical is working, if not there is no laser scanning and the possibility of the head being faulty is high.
Now certain cleaner disks are not read and so will not be tracked. Hence the rejection but the best is for cleaning manually the laser head eye with a cotton bud very softly and without pressing the lens eye.
If there is still no result then watch the CD if it spins or tries to spin. If the head unit moves up or down to focus or in and out of the drive, if so the board seems to work correctly and the possibility of the optical head being the suspected fault is closer.
Please take an estimate of the cost of the optical head before you can decide to replace.

Problems reading dvds


Have you tried cleaning the lens of the portable player? You can purchase a DVD cleaning disc, this disc has microfiber brushes which clean the laser len assembly of the player as the disc spins.

Hope this helps

I keep getting wrong disc error on my Daenyk DVD player and do not understand why I have played these DVDs on it prior and no Problem


Hello,

The reason the player keeps giving you wrong disc error is because the player is not reading the disc.

the reason is either the lens is dirty or weak.

To test if the lens is dirty, try to clean the lens with a lens cleaner and test the player DVD disc.

To fix it if the lens is weak, open the player with the appropriate screwdriver, open the disc tray, and replace the lens with a new lens, test it with a DVD disc.

Take care

DVD problem


It could be a couple things...
#1. Over time, dust and deposits can accumulate on the laser that reads the disc. In many cases, DVD players with this problem can still read CDs. You could try a DVD laser cleaner, which is usually a disc that has a tiny brush glued onto it. Run the cleaning disc 2 or 3 times, and try it again. Try both CDs and DVDs, since CDs are easier to read than a DVD.
2. After a DVD player has been used for awhile, another common problem is that the laser in the DVD player becomes misaligned, inhibiting its ability to read DVDs. In many cases, DVD players with this problem will still be able to read a CD. I'd try a cleaning disc first, since the only way to fix this problem is to bring the unit to a service center for repair.
Let me know what happens after you get the DVD laser cleaner and run it. Hope this helps.

DVDs won't play


Hi Pookie, This is an easy fix. All you need to get is a CD/DVD-Player Laser-Lens Cleaner for about $5.00. You can get these at Best Buy, Circuit City, Radio Shack, or any similar place. Use this, and let me know how it works for you. Best regards, nightdiver
