The laser is either dirty, or out of alignment or possibly too weak to read the disc. Try one of the laser cleaning disck with an alignment check I believe that maxell sells these, if you can't find one then a repair technician can adjust or clean i, but if the laser is no good then it will need replaced. Might be better to replace the unit before having a tech work on it or your costs will exceed a new unit.

My dvd gaves me a bad disc


when you play nothing but bootlegs in a dvd player, they tend to burn out the eye inside the player to where it will only read bootlegs. the original movies capabilities won't work anymore. hope this is a help to you my friend.

Won't read any DVD's


Have you tried using a CD player cleaner in the unit? Try a "wet" system. One that uses a cd with tiny brushes on it that you pour a little (included) cleaner on it and run it in the player as if it were any other cd. They have worked miracles for me in the past. Also, although I'm not sure about Kenwoods, I have had a number of aftermarket head units and they have all had. "Reset" button on them. I usually find them on the front located behind the faceplate. Simply remove cd's, press and hold button (with ballpoint pen) for 10- 20 seconds. This will require you to reset time, memory etc... Good luck!

The dvd player side doesn't want to read all discs. Some it just flashes the loading and makes a clicking sounds, sometimes it loads up and freezes on dvds, it does this when i try to put in a cleaning...


The clicking is made by the laser head as it moves across the surface of the disk repeteadly trying to pick up the data signal and failing.
If it has used to work then it's clearly a dirt problem. If a cleaning disk has failed to work then the dust has gone all the way to the reading sensor. To clean it you will need top completely dismantle the unit access the optical mechanism, take off the cover and access the reading head - there blow with the can between the lens and the sensor then with a q-tip wipe the surface of the lens.

My CD/DVD drive won't read/play DVDs and it won't write DVDs either. It used to do this fine, but it doesn't anymore. It will still play and write CDs, but not DVDs. I have tried EVERYTHING to...


You probably will need to replace the optical drive (CD/DVD drive) in your laptop. Go to Google and search for "Dell Inspirion 6000 CD/DVD drive" to find a replacement.
To be sure it's the CD/DVD drive that's defective and not your operating system software, you could also try to boot from a boot-able DVD disk.

Hi, I bought this LG RC897T 2 years ago and have only used the DVD player about 60 times. I've bought original "US" TV Box set dvds and Chinese knock-offs, and wrote my own dvds and they all...


Hello Mark. Most likely your player is regionalized and not compatable ith those DVD's that won't play. To eliminate the regional setting on your player go to this link http://www.wisebread.com/make-your-dvd-player-region-free-in-seconds

It contains the step by step instructions on how to make your player region free. It also has an how to video and a full explanation of why the regionalization was installed in the first place. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

After disc is loaded, it says "unknown disc."


Is it a pirated dvd? If it is, do you know some dvd players won't read pirated dvds? And if it isn't, then your dvd player may be dirty (the lens). For that you would have to buy a cleaning disk. You can get one at Radioshack. Or maybe what type of dvd type is it? Is it dvd-r, dvd-rw, or what? Some dvd players have trouble reading dvd-rw sometimes.

Hope this helps.
