Question about LG BD530 Blu-Ray Player

1 Answer

My LG BD530 suddenly stopped playing DVDs yesterday. It still will play Blue-Ray discs, but rejects every DVD with a "check disc" error. It had played everything fine for 2 months. I updated the software, but that didn't help. LG service is saying I'll have to send it in to them. Any other suggestions before I kiss it goodbye for 6-8 weeks?

    Mine recently stopped playing all DVDs as well. When it first started saying "No Disc" while trying to play a DVD, it would eventually work after 20 or so times of ejecting and closing. Now it won't play DVDs at all. Today it also started to take quite a while longer to even load BluRay discs. Not looking good...

Why is it a sony BDP-S1200 not play DVD discs but can play blue ray discs?


Check that you are playing the correct region coded discs for your player. Blu-Ray discs tend to be universal but not DVDs. If you are playing Region2 disc when the player is set for region 1 (American) then they won't play and again Vice Versa.

My JVC HR-XVC27U plays some DVDs but not others. They have the correct codes, but it seems to not play the newer DVDs like Toy Story 3


see the causes and remedies and fix it: God bless you
  1. No disc. - Load a disc into the tray.
  2. Disc has been loaded upside down. Place the disc with the label side up.
  3. Disc region code does not match region code of the player.
  4. Disc type is not the correct type to play.
  5. Disc is damaged or dirty. Clean the disc or try another.
  6. Moisture may be condensed inside the unit. Remove the disc and the leave the power on for one or two hours.

Disc Error when I try to play a dvd LG DP781


Hi,

Sounds like either a dirty or weak laser/lens. Pls try cleaning with a CD disc cleaner or manually using cotton buds (if the eye is accessible).

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

you have probably to clean up your dvd player with a clean up CD. After that if your dvd player doesn't want to read a dvd but play a cd, your laser output must be to fix. you'll have to go to a specialist.

Won't Read blank disc!!


I my DVD-HR735 wont recognise any discs at times, and is getting worse. I've now discovered (out of frustration) that if I tip the front up to between 30-45 degrees, it will play all the discs it says were unreadable. I've started jamming three dvd boxes under the front of the machine when i want to play dvds.
