SOURCE: INSERT DISC PLAYER STARTS TO READ,AFTER A READING

The disc drive is not reading and so after it tries on for some time the drive does not detect and so fails to read. You can try and clean the optical lens unit manually using an ear bud with delicate wipes on the lens eye. If this wont change the error then the optical unit is faulty and will need a change.

Cd inserted in cd player no disc


The problem is in the laser pickup assembly, overtime the laser becomes weak until it will no longer read the disc, it is far cheaper to replace the stereo than have the old unit repaired.

Technika combi unit dvd player wont read discs anymore


Hello,

how long have you been using this player? I suspect the laser (lens) of the player. I think the laser (lens) is weak that's why it cannot read data/files on DVD discs.

To confirm if actually its a laser problem, insert an Audio CD into the player and see if will play. If it plays, then obviously, your laser (lens) is weak. But if it doesn't play Audio CD, then it might still be the laser (lens) or a mechanism problem.

Get a lens cleaner, use it to clean the lens. If that doesn't solve the problem, get a screw driver, open the player's cover so that you can gain access to the lens, use a cotton board to clean the surface of the lens. This should clean dust or dirt that might be on the lens.

If non of the above solves the problem, then know that you need to replace the laser to a brand new one.

To replace the lens, remove the bad laser, use it as a sample to get exactly the same type and do the replacement. Note that replacing a laser (lens) needs a professional touch, so if you cannot replace the laser, get it to a repairman to fix it for you.

Once this us done, your player will play all DVD discs again.

Regards.

When I insert myDVD disc, the screen shows loading for a minute or so--then reads incorrect disc and bad on the player. This is a disc I have used before and has the label that shows it is the disc this...


Hi,
It seems that optical laser block gets fail to read data on disc and possible cause could be dirty/ clogged lens or optical laser block failure.
Put lens cleaning disc in unit to clean optical lens and check DVD playback, if that does not solve the issue then optical laser block would be defective and requires replacement that would cost approx new player price.
Hope these info will help.
Thanks.

It won't play a dvd! and when it does it just sits like it is stopped!!


Hello

Eject the DVD from the Cyberhome DVD player. Look over the bottom of the disc. If any dirt and fingerprints are present, remove them with a damp cloth, moving from the inner circle of the DVD to the outside.

Insert the DVD into a scratch repair device, if the DVD has any light scratches (deep scratches are not reparable). Turn on the DVD repair kit and the device literally sands down the scratch. When this is finished, the DVD should work correctly with the Cyberhome DVD player.

Avoid inserting homemade DVDs into the disc drive. The Cyberhome is not compatible with many self-created DVDs, causing a "Disc Read Error" message to appear on the screen.

Spray compressed air into the disc drive of the DVD player. The compressed air removes dust and other debris from the laser and reading lens in the player.

Player will not read discs. keeps saying "no disc" when discs are inserted. Worked fine until today.


Easy option first , clean laser with a laser cleaning disc ,if that doesn't work then (I assume you have tried more than 1 disc). a laser won't read a dirty disc, you may have a laser mechanism fault ie laser sticking in its tracks. you could try oiling the cradle that the laser sits on. other than that it is a costly repair.

My DVD player / recorder keeps kicking out the discs I put in. It won't even read them. the screen says close and the tray comes back out almost immediatly. Now it's gotten so bad that the tray won't come...


How old is your DVD recorder/player?
It sounds like it needs a service!
The usual problem with DVD players/recorders not reading discs is that the laser output is starting to fail - and consequently the laser light emitted is insufficient for the system to "read" through the minute "holes" in the disc.
It's possible to have the laser replaced, but this would cost you at least £50, depending on where you live.

Initially, you could try buying (or borrowing) a laser cleaning disc. These cost around £3 to £5 depending on where you buy & live, and have a small brush on the lower side of the disc. Insert this into your player and run the disc for a couple of minutes. If there are any dust particles that have been blocking the light output from your laser head, then this may remove it and might solve the problem.

If this fails, then it seems likely that the laser head is not producing enough output and would have to be replaced with a new one.

Also, you could try playing a CD on your DVD player as these discs contain far less information than a video disc (DVD) and the laser head may be able to cope with this.
If the CD plays ok, then you will know that the reason why it won't play DVD's is the light output has started to fade due to the age or excess use of your system.

Sony DVD player reads no disc after inserting disc?


Its due to faulty Laser Lens/head. Try cleaning it by cleaning CD. If still the problem persists, contact near by service center.

DVD player issues


Most likely the dvd is dirty, scratched, or chipped. Try cleaning the dvd disk with a soft cloth (chamois works best). Look at the surface of the disk and if it is scratched lightly, dust and dirt particles, fingerprints, etc will cause refractions from the laser light in the dvd player, which is then read as an error by the dvd player. Cleaning it with a soft cloth will sometimes help.

If that does not work, hold the disk up towards a light source and look for light coming through from the other side. If this happens, the disk is unreadable and unrepairable as the data source has been corrupted.
