Try cleaning the DVD's you are using, windex and a very soft cloth like a bath towel work very good.

Cleaning the lens is also important, but if neither of these help you need to have it serviced by a professional. There is no other easy fix for DVD or CD players. If the laser pick up is not reading the disc, it needs to be replaced. It is not always the laser pick up at fault, but it is the most common problem. If it is something other than the laser pick up, a properly trained technician can figure that out. It requires the proper tools like an O-scope, multimeter and soldering equipment to repair them. I have been repairing this type of equipment for 18 years and know a lot about them. The only thing any end useer can do is to clean them, that's it. If you have some knowledge of electronics and have the proper equipment I can guide you thru the troubleshooting process of figuring out what the exact problem is.

For starters, if the disc does not spin many will tell you it is the spindle motor. This is not true, if the laser can not get a reflection back from the disc, it will think there is no disc and not spin. If it does spin the disc but will not read it, it could still be the laser being to weak to read the data on the disc properly. If it spins the disc too slowly, it may be the motor, but could also be the servo driver IC that powers the motor, or a voltage regulator that is not putting out the proper voltage and causing the motor to spin too slow to get a focus lock. All of the above things can be working normal and still not be able to read a disc because of the DSP (digital signal processor) IC not being able to interpret the data correctly. There are also a number of other things that can cause a DVD or CD player to not read a disc. They are extremely complicated and technical equipment that can not be fixed without the proper tools and training unless it is just a matter of the lens of the laser being dirty or the disc's being dirty.

So, try cleaning the lens and the dsic's, if it doesn't work take it to a service center, but in most cases the repair will cost more than a new one.

If I can be of any further help let me know.

    ok, u need to use a lens cleaner disc or, or if worse comes to worse, you will need to replace lens head itself, or the circuitry....in which case I recommend u getting a new piece altogether, which will work out cheaper :)

I have a sony blu-ray player but it will not play bluray films, it will play dvd. are thers any settings to change/ picture is blured, will not play in 1080. thanks dennis


You should download the latest firmware from the website and update your player. If that does not work, the blu-ray lens eye is bad. There are 2 lasers that read discs, one red and one blue. The red reads normal dvd. The blu reads blu-ray.

I have a Toshiba DVD Video Player Model SD 260. I


Hello, The problem could be dirt on the surface of the lens, you can clean this by removing the cover of the dvd player . Gently use a dry cotton bud to clean the lens because the lens is fragile. Insert the disc plate into the dvd player and press play, if it does not play try the second method. Ensure the cover of the player is open, connect the power plug to the mains socket and observe the lens if it beam a red light, Also check the ribbon cable use to connect the lens to the printed circuit board, then gently clean the lens with a dry cotton bud , insert the disc plate and press play to see if it play. If it does not play the disc, then this require a change of the lens

Hi well it could mean that your DVD player is dirty and needs to be clean or the disc that your trying to play is not compatible with DVD player could be a different region.

Can't display Pal on My Sony 57" KP-57WS520


There are probably a few problems here. What are you using to play the disc? Some NTSC players will "play" a PAL disc but interpret it as NTSC with the symptom you are describing. You need a DVD player that will play PAL. Many of those will output NTSC directly when set up to do so. The other alternative is to have a PAL compatible player that will output PAL into the converter. To narrow this down specifically, please post the model numbers and the connection scheme for your equipment. Once I understand your current setup, I should be able to describe a method to get this to work for you.

Sp k-970 dvd player will not play. played 1 dvd whenfirst bought now will not play any


1) Reset DVD player by powering unit off and unplugging from wall outlet for 30 seconds, then try again
2) Run a DVD cleaner

Are you getting a "No Disc" Message no matter what disc you use? Are you getting the message no matter what type of disc you use - commercial DVD vs burned DVD? If you are only having problems with burned DVD's, then make sure the discs are finalized.

Is the TV on the right channel?

If all else fails, call the manufacturer.

My 14" dvd combi player wont read any disc i put in. The only thing that happens is that the main screen says reading disc then about 1 minute later is says please insert a playable disc. I have tried...


The optics can not read the disc. Try cleaning the lens inside using a cotton swab and alcohol. Also try playing a music CD. If the CD plays but a DVD continues to fail, the opticsl will need to be replaced. Depending upon the specific model, this could cost anywhere from $50-$120.
