Hi jefflapres,
Check my TIPS on how to diagnose the faulty parts.
I'm assuming here that the disc is good. If the motor is good as well as the optical lens ribbon, replaced the entire lens assembly.

It could have just been your wrong time to borrow it. It could just be dirty... Try a CD/DVD cleaner.... That's about all you can hope for. Other than that let it cool down if it has been in constant use. Repair would be too costly, replacing would be the last step. If it's new it might be under warranty. If it's old it may have had too much use and died. Sorry to hear it!

Either the spindle motor is not reaching the required speed to read the table of contents, the traverse motor is in the wrong place and won't allow the disc to be read or the laser is faulty.
It could be any combination of the above. Time for a new player?

Suddenly my DVD player is saying "no disc" after trying to load DVD. Why isn't it sensing the DVD has been loaded?


When a DVD goes into DVD player it has to spin it and read it. If your DVD player is not reading the disk. The disk could be dirty. The DVD player might need to be cleaned. You could be trying to play a PAL disk on a NTSC player or Visa Versa. or the region coding might be wrong. Try playing a clean disk that you have played in it before. That might tell you if you need to clean the DVD player.

No matter what disc I put in it wont play and Bad Disc comes up on t.v. I know the movie discs are good ones.


Hello marciafoxmar,

If you know for a fact that the discs you are putting in, then there is obviously something wrong with the DVD player. When you put a DVD in your player, can you hear it spinning the disc at all? If your DVD is not even spinning the disk, I'm afraid your DVD player might be toast. If it does spin your discs, try a lens cleaning disc (available at pretty much any home electronics store or large chain store that sells home electronics). If that does not help, let us know and also let us know if you would be comfortable opening your DVD player.

Machine will not read disc


When you get no disk error, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will start operating on certain disks better than others.

In that case you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD/DVD will not be read, therefore the error.

Whe this problem is starting you may be able to read only CD, DVD or Blue ray, or for example only DVD-R and not +R , or only to read and not to write and so on. After more prolonged usage , often the unit goes losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all.

If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens problem.

Try first using a CD/DVD or Blue ray lens cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does not work you will need to disassemble the drive , and clean lens directly with q tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the CD/DVD lens, or the whole drive unit.

Appears not to recognize disks


If when you insert the disk you hear a whirring and clicking noise, CD spins, and does not read, then that is a problem with the DVD lens.

The DVD lens try to focus on the DVD track, by moving lens pickup and spinning the disk, but cannot read the tracks because the lens is dirty or defective.

Try first cleaning the lens with a DVD cleaner disk. And also if you can see the lens from the outside try blowing some canned air on it.

If this still does not help, then the lens pickup may be faulty, in this case you often replace the whole DVD drive unit inside the DVD player.
