Good day..

That is the common problem of DVD..In that case it usually happen when the lens is not function well or cannot read the CD clearly so you have to do is..

  • First,remove the cover of the DVD by loosening all screw from the side and back that holds the top cover.
  • Secondly,if your DVD having a top cover to the disc assembly or the disc tray,remove it..If none you need to remove the whole disc assembly from the unit to reveal the cd lens
  • Thirdly,after the lens will reveal..Try to clean the lens using cotton buds and don't put any chemical such as alcohol or contact cleaner even water..
  • And finally assemble it to test the DVD if it is OK..



  • Thank you and good luck.

PS2 wont play DVD movies!


Hi. It seems that you might have an old version of the PS2.

The original PS2's had a problem with the laser that read CDs and DVDs, often failing, creating problems with reading DVDs and in rare cases, CDs.

Unfortunately, the class action lawsuit filed against Sony is too old to get yours fixed for free, but there are ways to attempt to fix the laser yourself, if you would rather not send it in to Sony.

My lg dvd writer could not read all dvds (it reads some cds and dvds). What may i do?


This may be caused by bad media, or incompatible formats. There are a variety of media formats for CDs and DVDs. Your reader may not read them all. What model are you running, and what type of media (DVD-R, DVD+R, etc) are you using?

Can't read or play any DVDs, CDs or games. Can do


It sounds like the drive is failing. If it will turn on, but can't read any media then I would suggest cleaning it, checking it for warranty replacement, or exchanging it at the place you purchased it, if it is possible.

DVD-ROM drive reads CDs, but not DVDs Dell x-200


It shouldn't be a driver issue. DVD drives are natively supported by XP. What software do you have installed for playing DVD'? Windows Media Player 11 would be excellent, and it's free from Microsoft. PowerDVD and WinDVD are also good, but you have to buy them.

Plays cds but not dvds


If the lens is clean (clean with cotton swab and alcohol), then the optics are failing. DVDs require more power and accuracy to be read than CDs. The ability to read CDs but not DVDs is usually a good indication that the optics are starting to fail.

Portable dvd player will play music cds but not video dvds


Chances are, your DVD player uses one laser to read CDs, and a different laser to read DVDs (since Cds and DVDs are read at different wavelenghts of light). If the DVDs you're trying to watch work properly in other DVD players, it probably means that the DVD laser is dirty, damaged, or burned out. Though you can try cleaning the laser (use Google for suggestions on how to do this, or check the Audiovox website), you will most likely have to get the DVD player repaired, or buy a replacement. Many of the newer CD/DVD players sold today use a single combination laser, which reads both CDs and DVDs, which means that when the laser fails, it will not work at all. Wish I had better news for you, but I guess that the only consolation you have is that your Audivox player still works with CDs...
