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.

Did you try another disc and does it has the same problem? was everything working using this player or its new? If its working before you can first cleaning the player using a CD cleaner because sometimes this can only be cause by a dirt inside it..

Hope that helps..........

    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 :)

DVP-NS30 shows "CANNOT PLAY" message when DVD inserted


Follow this procedure to troubleshoot if the DVD player cannot read or play the inserted disc.
  1. Ensure the inserted disc is compatible with the DVD player.IMPORTANT: Refer to the operating instructions supplied with the product for a list of compatible disc. Manuals are available online in the Manuals/Specs/Warranty section of the Sony® eSupport Web site.
  2. Use a soft cloth to clean the disc.
  3. Examine the disc for any cracks or scratches that might be interfering with playback.
  4. Attempt to play another disc.NOTES:
    • If another disc plays in the DVD player, then the previous disc is faulty.
    • Some recordable discs may not play correctly because of the quality of the recording, the physical condition of the disc, or the characteristics of the recording device or authoring software used.

  5. Remove the disc from the DVD player.
  6. Turn off the DVD player.
  7. Unplug the power cord of the DVD player from the AC outlet.
  8. Let the DVD player remain without power for 1 minute.
  9. Plug the power cord back into the AC outlet.
  10. Turn on the DVD player.
  11. Insert the disc into the DVD player.
  12. Attempt to play the disc.
If still persists, its time for your device to get serviced.

Says "wrong disc"


This problem can often be caused by the DVD player software thinking it is in a region different than your discs. (DVD discs are often encoded with 'region codes' meaning a disc purchased in Asia will not work in a player expecting to see North American discs)

What can happen is the player 'forgets' where it is, and your regioned discs won't play any longer (region free discs should continue to work as will audio CDs ....)

A power surge, random cosmic ray or similar flakiness can cause a player to 'forget' what region it was designed for ....

If that is what has happened you need to 'reset' the region code.

Altho I can diagnose this, I have NO CLUE as to how to do this with a Protron PD-800 DVD player. Anyone out there know how to reset the region codes for this (or generically for a DVD player?)

Thanks!! //cheapz

Screen does not work.


I had the same problem on my Protron PD-758LP. What the problem was with mine, is that the switch on the back was set to "IN, it should be set to "OUT" when playing DVD's.
