Problem with the lens most likely, I would take it in to be tested first, if you got warranty then that covers it.

    see if the player tries to read the disc. Load a disc and listen.
    Does
    the player make squealing noises or is it totally quiet? Squealing
    noises may indicate that the player is trying to synchronize with the
    disc but can't due to an obstruction on the lens or in the laser path
    inside the pickup or a defect in the pickup. This can also be caused by
    an intermittent signal problem due to a faulty ribbon cable.

    Totally
    silent means that the photo sensor is not getting any usable input from
    the laser at all, meaning that the pickup is "blind" for lack of a
    better word.
    This can be caused by an obstruction of the beam by
    foreign matter on the lens or inside the pickup all the way to a
    marginal or failed laser diode and/or photosensor array. This can also
    be caused by a bad ribbon cable with one or more severed traces.

    You
    could try to clean the optics. This is the most common malfunction as
    far as i know in all disc players. It would involve taking the cover
    off and finding a way to expose the lense, and then cleaning it with a
    very gentle brush. some players have a cover for the lense that swings
    to the side during playing, this greatly reduces the chance of dust
    accumulating, but its still worth the try.

    If you actually see dust on the lense, then its just that simple. clean, close, play.


    It may also be worth your while to check on the small shafting that
    guides the carriage of the laser pickup. Dirt, grome, dust and
    solidified lubricant can cause stoppage of the carriage and the laser
    eye then fails to read the next track.

    You can also take a cotton ball and lightly dampen it with
    alcohol.Gently swirl it over the lens.Take another cotton ball (dry)Gently
    swirl it over the lens.

    common f15 errors are caused by the cd players lid not being closed,
    you need to see if the protruding plastics inside your cd player pushes
    the closed lid detection properly. If not, it needs some manual
    disassembly.I strongly recommend you to get it repaired.There are no home remedies.

No disk error


Try another disk, if not this unit may be broken and repair may not be economically to your advantage. These drives where out - they are a mechanical spinning part.

Disney d-style karaoke won't read disk or spin disk


The problem is in the laser pickup assembly, the pladder motor is not working that spins the disk, and unfortuneately the only way to correct this is to replace the entire assembly which probably won't be cost effective.

My CD player keeps displaying no disk and wont play the cleaner disc, is something dirty or broken?


Hello
If it does not play the cleaner disc, just inspect whether the disc inserted in spins inside it. You can check this by open the upper cover of the player, and inserting a disc into it. If inserted disc spins inside, and the player won't read it, the fault is with its laser pickup unit, and it should be replaced with same type and number.
If the disc dos not spins, the fault is with the sled motor [the motor that spins the inserted disc], has damaged, and should be replaced. OK.

When loading a dvd it displays, "NO DISK". Is it


Hello
There are mainly three motors for most of the DVD players. One to spin the disc we insert in, other to load the laser pickup unit to-and-fro inside it to read the disc and an other one to load the tray mechanism 'in-out'. According to your description, the disc spins inside, and you can hear its spin. So motor which spins the disc has no trouble at all I should say. Then comes to the second motor that moves the laser assembly inside it. If it do not work, the laser pickup unit won't move and no reading will take place and 'No Disc' display will be the result. The last chance is with Laser Pickup Unit itself. Just get this unit repaired by any well experienced service technician or by the authorised service center, because, there are special tools to open this unit. As it is a compactable one, more care should be given to it while repairing. Suspect the second motor I described earlier, and the Laser Pickup Unit. OK.

Restored an still tells me to restore


If you did a hard reset and it still doesn't connect, not even to windows explorer, most likely you have a broken logic board or broken hard drive. Try to listen to the HDD when it is spinning - is there a repetivie sound? If so, it's a defective HDD, if the hdd spins smoothely mostlike a broken logic board, you can try to replace it yourself, there are guides websites online that teach you iPod repair skills, if you're already a little tech savy.

Cover fordisk holder is broken


You can trick the player into thinking the cover is closed and still play DVD's.
Open the lid and notice the small button on the top right side. Pressing the button will simulate the "lid down" so the disks will play.
You can even see the cool red laser when there is no disk.

Disc won't load and then shows weird symbol in right corner


Check the black spindle that holds the disk it may be cracked or broken or the little spring tabs are broken. If this is the problem when the disk spins it lifts up and the head doesn't read the disk, this is what has happened to mine. I am trying to locate the part but so far have not had luck finding it.
