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.

Model 5005 have used successfull for 3 years unit now will not recognise disks made by it or accept new recordable dvd rw or older erased dvd-rw disks. Disks which are successfully played on a Panasonic...


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 does not play


Does it read other CD's. If yes:
I would start off by thinking you just don't have software (codecs) to play the DVD

Try downloading VLC player. Look it up in google.
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.

Watching wmv files on DVd


MPEG-2 video is the file format you’ll need to convert to, but you cannot simply burn the MPEG-2 to a DVD and automatically play it in a DVD player.
The easily way is to buy software that will make the transition smooth; I recommend VSO Convert to DVD.

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
