DVD-S540 Player-disk not recognised

Hi hope you could help. I have the above dvd player 2 years old. For some reason, when I try to play a dvd or cd I get the message "no disk". Can this be solved? Is it an optical failure? Is it cost effective to have it repaired?
Regards

Had similar problem..used pure ethanol with a cotton bud on the lens for cleaning. Its been working ok for a while..But my problem is not 100% fixed yet as it still gives me hassle on ad adhoc basis. Maybe the solution of Seanrm might be a much better one....

I had a similar problem...the machine, which had been great up until then, started to be very fussy when loading a disc; using a lens cleaner did not help at all.

I opened the disc tray and used a can of "air duster" with the straw attachment blowing in lots of air into every little nook and cranny that I could reach, especially in and around the actual lens area. The liquified gas under pressure must have been too cold as, at first, there was no improvement whatsoever when I tried playing a disc. However, the next day the player was working perfectly again.

It is worth a try.

Does this player still recognize another disc that was not made from it ? of it doesn't recognize and disc at all? if that is teh case that this can be a problem with the lens of the player already you can try to run a DVD cleaner and hopefully that will fix the problem but if still not this may need a lens replacement already...

Yamaha DVD S540 stops playing at 1H:15M.


Hi,

Its abnormal for every Disk to stop playing after every 1H:15M.

I believe there is a setting on your DVD player that need to be adjusted.

Check the Timer settings on your DVD. You could also check that of the TV.

The fault is not from the lens. If it was from the lens, the disk would not play in the first place or it would crack.

So check the timer settings thoroughly.

Take care.

Dvd player only plays some movies


it might be sevral reasons:
1. Check if region code is the same for movies you playing and DVD player
2. If you using video CDs or copyed DVDs, player might be preventing to playback those kind of discs, due to copyright laws or due to different speed settings for DVD player and discks you using (for intsrance you player can playback DVD/CD+R, and you using DVD/CD-R, or mximum allowed playback speed is 16 you using disk recorded at 24, but this is in case you using burned/copied CD/DVDs)
3. Check it lens is durty. For that use CD/DVD lens cleaning disk
($6 in Walmart, if you are in US)
4. Check if movies you are have the same coloring system, i.e NTSC for US
5. Check CD/DVD for scratches, some DVD players can not playback scratched disks
Please kindly let me know if my information was helpfull for you or you need more info
Good Luck

Not able to read last files


Hi,
This sounds like your player is on the way out.
If it,s 2 years or more older, i,d consider getting a new player, they,re cheap now £20-£30 ish Plus.
The remote will be new-Batterys. The DVD Player laser is probably on the way out. The mechanical sounds are possibly the laser head moving up and down, struggling to read The Data on The Disk.
Heres all you can do before Binning it.
1:- try a laser head disk cleaning Kit.
2:- put new batterys In The remote.
3:- ensure the underside of the CD/DVD are clean of fingerprints And scratches.
Hope this Helps Mike @ Compurepair.

My Insignia 8" Portable dvd player does not detect dvd!


Try playing a regular CD first and take it out if it played. Then put the DVD and it will play fine because the player just realign its lense. Hope it will help
