I have just the dvd player, the player keeps ejecting the disc and not playing it


Could be lots of things, but here are a few easy ideas:
1) Is the disc Blu-Ray? A regular DVD player can't read Blu-Rays.
2) I think all DVD players can read CDs, but if the disc you're putting in is a CD, maybe that's the problem.
3) Maybe the disc is dirty. Wet the disc, wash it with dish soap (or hand soap, then rinse it clean and dry it off. You can use a cloth or a paper towel for washing/drying. When washing and drying, make motions across the disc from the inside hole to the edge; don't swirl around the disc.
4) Maybe the disc is not the same region as the player. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD_region_code
5) You've got a PAL (European) disc and an NTSC (American/Japanese) player.

After inserting any disc, it will read a few seconds, then it says "no disc"


Either a dirty optical pickup or a bad one (it reads the disc).

Hi -- my toshiba SD3990 model DVD player won't


Your DVD player is fu.k.d up.  These things are made so cheap now a days that it is more trouble to try to fix the thing, than going out and buying a new one.  You can try running a disc head cleaning kit through it first to see if that helps.

RCA DVD player model DRC105N that won't read discs anymore


If the DVD is not reading any CD, then it is often a lens problem.

If th lens cleaner does not work the unit must be taken apart, to clean the lens pickup with isopropyl alcohol and soft cotton tips.

In some case is necessary to replace the lens pickup, as this is defective.

DVD problem


It could be a couple things...
#1. Over time, dust and deposits can accumulate on the laser that reads the disc. In many cases, DVD players with this problem can still read CDs. You could try a DVD laser cleaner, which is usually a disc that has a tiny brush glued onto it. Run the cleaning disc 2 or 3 times, and try it again. Try both CDs and DVDs, since CDs are easier to read than a DVD.
2. After a DVD player has been used for awhile, another common problem is that the laser in the DVD player becomes misaligned, inhibiting its ability to read DVDs. In many cases, DVD players with this problem will still be able to read a CD. I'd try a cleaning disc first, since the only way to fix this problem is to bring the unit to a service center for repair.
Let me know what happens after you get the DVD laser cleaner and run it. Hope this helps.

DVD stopped playing all DVDs


Reset you player by doing the following:
With the player on, hooked properly to your television, and on the correct station:
Open the tray
Close the tray (with no DVD inserted)
Hold the stop button down for a full 5 seconds
The CyberHome screen should appear. You should be able to play your dvd's now.

Bad disc


I have the same problem with some of the Discs I have burned. Most people say the power supply, but I have 2 of these units so I swapped the power supply to see if that was it. The problem stayed in the one machine, ruling out the power supply.
