Don't. Prevention is better. Smoke and dust free environment. DVD's aren't LP's. There should be no ritual cleaning and fawning over them without cause. Avoid touching the playback surface and you shouldn't have to clean them other than to blow dust off.

Lots of good reading on optical discs.

The READ head is dirty or damaged...very difficult to get to the back of TV to disassemble DVD player.. clean read (light diode) head with light cleaning fulid or don't take apart & use official cleaning DVD disc. Look on web site for CD\dvd cleaning disc.It looks like a CD but has 'fuzz' or a very thin " rug" on 'read' side of disc.

My dvd cant read dvd but can read cd


Your laser head needs eighter cleaning or replacement.

Use a cleaning CD with solution to clean your Laser head.
if problem still exists you have to do a better cleaning by opening the DVD ram and use ear buttonetes with alcohol (a little alcohol dont flood the buttonete).
If still exist you have to replace the laser head, mostly is more expensive than buing a new DVD.

Player will not load dvd. I have cleaned everything, recharged, rested It just keeps loading on and on without connecting. Help.


This indicates that the optical head is weak and so there is no detection or scanning of the CD . If the optical is working the tracks will be read immediately but with no scanning the laser head can be defective.
The main motor will not work in some cases as unless the tracks are read the drive motor will not work with signal from the processor.
Sometimes certain cleaner disks will not be tracked to run for cleaning as it will not be read and so will reject. Hence it is ideal to manually clean the laser head eye using a cleaning swap /cotton bud with gentle pressure on the lens eye.

Dvd player won't play disc


The DVD read head may need to be cleaned. Sometimes perfectly OK drives also fail to read certain discs. If the problem is persistent, i.e. the notebook won't read any discs, then clean the head (with a head cleaner) and try again. If it starts working, fine.. If not, then you may have to replace the DVD drive. If the problem is only related to playing one particular DVD, then its the DVD that is faulty.
Hope this helps.

I have a panasonic RV26 DVD player. After inserting DVD it goes to the reading mode (normal) but it stays on the reading mode for awhile then code H02 shows and then stops and and will not accept any other...


The Optical head or the mother board is defective. The data is not received and so the Mp is not able to read or process.
hence if have cleaned the optical head lens, and there is no reading try to put in a audio cd to test. If the cd is read the head must be Ok and the DVD processing must be faulty possible board issue but if there is no reading then the optica head is faulty

Won't read dvd's


hi try first to clean up your laser sense with a clean up CD, after if your problem is still there, you have to go to specialist cause your laser sense is defficient, and used and have to be replaced, maybe the best thing to do is to buy a new DVD player.
you have to know that a laser sense has a limited life and it's normal to change it after aproximatly 2000 hours.
I hope this helps
Please rate accordingly
Thank You
