Etched ring on outer ring of dvd disc

Salutations Experts.  My IS PDVD10 is making a ring around any dvd disc.  The cushion or padding that I guess supports the disc is having uneven wear on by closely examining it.  There are a total of 6 pads. They look uneven and some are flatten.  Is that my cause?  Can I fix it or replace those padding? if that is the cause. JS

Hey jtsing000,

Yes you can replace these pads with felt pads. You should be able to purchase some adherable pads for furniture legs at Home Depot, Menards, Lowes, or any hardware store...just get the really small ones. Otherwise you can cut your own out of felt from a hobby, craft, or fabric store.

Before going through all this trouble, check to make sure your discs are seating completely on the spindle. If you are getting a partial ring, this may be because the disc is not clipped in on the spindle completely. If the ring is all the way around the disc, then there is an issue with the height of the spindle.

I hope this helps!

How can ichange the disc brakes on a renault 19

Hi there, I have a few steps here to help you out:
  • With your hand brake ON, loosen the wheel bolts to hand tight, jack up front wheel, chock back wheels, and put axle stands/blocks in place (just in case) .
  • Remove wheel. Disconnect pad wear wire, it pulls out of the connector.
  • Remove lower caliper bolt (at the back of caliper at the bottom), need a 13mm ring spanner for head of bolt and 17mm to stop it spinning
  • Use a screw driver between the back of the outer pad and the caliper to raise the caliper back away from the back of outer pad. Pivot caliper upwards to rest on top of wheel disc (good idea to tie it up with some wire) .
  • Remove and discard old pads , clean out with wire brush and soft brush , don't breath in to much of the dust its nasty.
  • Fit new pads (remember pad wear sensor on inside pad), make sure that the pads are in contact with the disc , and the top of them sitting flush with the rim of the disc, don't force them into this position they should naturally sit there.
  • Lower caliper down into position, you may need to push back the piston further in order to make room for the new pads , do this with you hands or a small piece of timber. Keep an eye on the brake fluid reservoir , your pushing fluid back in so if its over full it may spill over. Refit lower caliper bolt (Renault say to replace this each time), and tighten. Reconnect pad wear sensor.
  • Pump brake pedal until normal brake pressure returns.
  • Remove axle stand/blocks, refit wheel and bolts, lower jack and tighten up wheel bolts.
Hope this helps...

No disc fault appears on screen of model insignia ns-pdvd10. Am I able to correct this problem?

Ensure that the disk is clean. The player may not play a disk if there is internal condensation; leave the player on for an hour. You may wish to try a lens cleaner. If these steps don't resolve the problem, repairs may be required. Service can be obtained by carrying the unit in to the place of purchase.

Front drivers side disc brake on 2001 dodge stratus. put on new rotor and brake pads. Get up to around 5mph it makes a noise, until brakes are hit. accelerate the noise starts again. outer brake pad is...

The piston from the caliber will keep the inner and outer pads close to the rotor. If outer pads is loose, need to reassemble to find out if it didn't get installed right.

Scratching disks

Microsoft have changed the mould for the dvd trays (or the suppliers have changed them at least) so that on the latest editions of the 360 it does not scratch them as much as it used to. the previous person is right. what happens is that when the disc is being read from it will spin very very fast and one slight knock on the older 360's would produce a ring right around the 360. this happens when the game disc wobbles and touches the moulding on the dvd tray.

i would try not to move the console while its on, wait at least 30 seconds before moving the console after you turn it off.
if you have a wired pad this can make things worse as everything you pull the pad it can make the disc wobble and cause this problem.

a friend of min stopped this happening by getting a thin enough peice of soft foam and gluing it onto the tray so that when the discs did wobble they would skim the soft rubber and not the hard mouldings.

im also guessing its a samsung drive you have because the earlier ones were really bad for this.

hope it helps a bit.

Keeps saying "No disc" when I put a DVD in to play

This sounds like the lens inside the unit is broken. Take it back to where you bought it from they should take it back under warrenty.

Rings around the disc

It's caused by badly pressed discs - due to shake caused by the high speeds of the disc spinning and then catching the laser assembly. There are things you can do such as place foam pads inside the DVD drive itself, so discs cannot move as much when they spin.
