Bad Disc Errors

Hello. I am getting a "Bad Disc" error when trying to load a disc in the player. It tries to load for about 30-45 seconds and then the error appears. This is occurring on ALL discs. This just started an hour ago. I was watching an episode on a disc. Then when finished I tried to start the next episode. It would not start so I opened/closed the tray and retried, and then shut the player down and retried. No matter what disc I put in however, I get the same error and I know the discs are good.

    The model number is not appearing above, so I'm noting it here. Its a JVC SD-6000 DVD player.

    No, they're store-bought DVD movies (X-Files, Star Wars, etc).

Disc error


It means either the optical pickup trying to read the disc is dirty or bad.

If bad--it may not be cost effective to repair that unit.

What does error 20 mean in a grand prix cd player?


CD Errors E20 or CHECK CD

Cause(s): The CD player cannot focus on the disc or there is an internal focus problem.
Correction(s): Try cleaning the disc or using a new disc. Make sure the disc is loaded correctly. The road could be too rough or there is too much humidity. If the problem is not corrected, service the unit at an ACDelco® Service Center.

Hope helps.

It says unable to read disc when i put the game in.


Please Rate me!
What Is It? The Disc Read error is a simple one. It simply means that the Xbox is unable to read the disc that you have placed in the drive. In the majority of instances, this error has nothing to do with the functionality of the console, but, rather, hinges on the actual disc that has been inserted into the DVD tray.
Disc-Related Errors The most common reason for Disc Read errors are related to the disc itself. Numerous conditions can keep the laser from reading the information contained within the game, DVD or CD in the DVD drive.
  • The disc is scratched - Game discs, audio CDs and DVDs can become scratched very easily. Usually this is because they have not been kept in their cases, but left in the open. Simply resting two discs atop one another can scratch the bottom disc. If discs are sufficiently scratched, the data contained on them will be inaccessible to the drive.
  • The disc is dirty/dusty - Dirt and dust can build up on the faces of discs left exposed. When sufficient dirt or dust has built up, it can block the laser beam used to read the disc, resulting in a Disc Read error.
  • The disc is the incorrect region - DVDs come in formats called "regions." These regions match the region specified in the software of the DVD player. Some games also have these regions. If the region of the DVD and that of the player do not match, the disc will not play.
Can I Fix These Errors? Repairing disc-related issues may or may not be possible. If the cause is simply dirt and dust, you can certainly repair the disc. However, if the cause is due to extreme scratching, then replacing the disc is likely your only choice. If the disc is from the incorrect region or from another country, you will have to obtain the correct region. Returning the disc to the retailer for exchange may work.
Non-Disc Related Errors As mentioned, there can be some Disc Read errors that have nothing to do with the disc at all. In this case, it's time to troubleshoot the Xbox.
  • First, simply try to reboot the machine. Often, this will flush the cache or other error and allow the game to operate or the disc to play.
  • Second, try removing the hard drive and/or memory units. Once removed, reboot the console and attempt to load the disc with the hard drive and memory out of the unit. If this works, you can simply shutdown and reinstall the hard drive.
  • Attempt to play the disc in another type of player. For instance, attempt to play the DVD in another DVD player or the CD in a CD player. If the disc plays in these players, you may need to clean the Xbox DVD player.
  • Check to make sure that all air vents are open and are able to provide sufficient airflow. Overheating can cause Disc Read errors, as well. In addition, ensure that the power supply is unobstructed and uncovered. Much like the Xbox 360, the power supply can become quite hot and can cause errors if unventilated.
  • Check for disc tray errors. Depress the eject button and watch the tray extend. If the tray partially extends and then retracts immediately, you may have a problem with the DVD drive. If your Xbox is under warranty, this can be replaced at no charge. However, if you are out of warranty, you can install a new DVD drive on your own.
  • As a note, make sure that the new DVD drive comes with the same firmware as your original console, or you may experience additional error codes after the installation of the new DVD drive.

I get a lot of "bad disc" error messages with good discs. They often work after 3-10 tries. Can I fix this problem? Is it just a dirty lens?


Try cleaning the head of the DVD and seeif this helps make sure all the connectors are tight in the main board.
If not the optical headd is getting weak or the main motherboard has errors.

Inserted disc reading "No Disc"


Hello Brian,

It looks like you have a bad lens assembly. That explains the "No Disc" error. Just get the lens assembly replaced and it will be back to normal.

Dvd player refuses to read any disc I load into the machine


Hello I was looking to try and help you with your DVD player, we will start by loading a music cd store purchased, no burned cds please, if the cd loads and plays then your dvd player is either out of adjustment or going bad, most dvd players, i have worked on, will load and play a music cd, but will show loading errors when trying DVD's. If the music cd dosen't load then there could be an issue with the drive or tray. If the music cd plays just fine, then your laser is either out of adjustment or going bad. You can call the manufacuter to see if there is a process for resetting the DVD player, not all DVD players have this option, if resetting the DVD player dosen't work, but music cd's do then your laser lens is dirty or going bad. At this point you have three options 1) Take it to a repair shop, 2) Get an new one, 3) Get your hands dirty if your really handy and know what your doing to clean and replace the laser. I hope I can be of further assitance and I look forward to helping in the future, Thank You and have a nice day.

Getting "Bad Disc" message after Loading message...


If you've had it a long time and used it often, could be the lens is dirty or something wore down and it should be trashed since newer players have more features like usb ports.
