When the disc is loaded, the optics attempt to first determine whether or not there is actually a disc there. If that fails, the disk won't spin. The typical causes for this are:
1) The lens is dirty so that the optics don't realize that a disc is present.

2) The optics are bad and do not attempt the above.

Try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. That should resolve the problem. If not, try playing a music CD. If the CD plays but a DVD does not, the optics are failing and need to be replaced. If neither one will play, the optics have failed completely and need to be replaced.

Keep us posted.

Error reading any dvd disks


Have you tried a DVD+/-RW ?

The noises that you are hearing will be the spindle motor trying to spin the DVD as the lifting presentation tray for the read/write head has not located, if the media is not spinning this will never be able to read the lead in on any DVD as it has not presented the disc in the correct place.

If is is out of guarantee then I suggest that you check to see if the DVD is spinning by removing the top cover with the power OFF then eject the tray and try to load the media a small touch of the DVD in the clockwise motion should cause the media to start spinning, this is for diagnosis only if this is the case then the spindle motor will need changing

When I put a disc in my dvd player it just continues to spin. It's like, it's not reconizing that a disc has been inserted, it just keeps spinning and spinning.


Try a lens cleaning disk. They can be purchased at pretty much any place that sells dvds or cds. If that does not work than it is the motor in your dvd player most likely.

Wrong disk


I looked at everybody's ideas, and none of the ideas seemed to fit my situation. My DVD player has been working fine for one month. I got a new DVD today in the mail. It froze, and then began to display the WRONG DISK message. Then, nothing would play on the player, All of the DVDs that had worked fine before, now would not play. They all said WRONG DISK. I tried reaching under and trying to clean the laser lens, but that did not fix the problem. I am not saying that this will fix your problem, but this is what fixed mine.

1. Place the DVD player on a table

2. Plug in the DVD player.

3.Push the OPEN button so that the DVD platter extends outside of the player (It now looks like it does when it is ready for you to put a DVD in it to play it.)

4. Unplug the DVD player. (Now the power is off, and the platter is still extended.

5. Remove the cover of the DVD player being careful not to damage the extended platter.

NOTE: With the platter extended, looking slightly from the rear, under where the DVD is spun, you will be able to see the Laser lens. It will be covered by the mechanism that spins the DVD. The lens will be connected to a mechanism that that has two rails on either side.

6. Grasp the plastic surrounding of the laser lens area and pull the entire mechanism toward the rear of the DVD player.

CAREFUL: DO NOT YANK THE MECHANISM BACKWARDS as this will break off the laser unit. This mechanism is being moved with the resistance of many gears. PULL SLOWLY AND FIRMLY, and the entire mechanism will move on the rails until the laser unit is clearly visible to you and completely from under the spinning mechanism.

7. Since the lens was clearly visible now, and easily accessable, I carefully and lightly cleaned the lens with a Qtip and alcohol.

8. Replace the cover on the DVD player

9. Place a DVD on the platter.

10. Plug in the DVD player

You will find that you no longer get the WRONG DISK message and your DVDs will now play properly. As I said, just reaching under and cleaning the laser lens did not seem to fix the problem. It was only when I moved the entire laser unit from under the spinning mechanism, and forced the DVD player to realign itself when it powered on, did the DVDs begin to play again.

Panasonic Portable DVD Player LS50


Can you see or hear that the disk is spinning up normally as it did before? I understand that the small, spin-motors on these portables often go bad.

Portable DVD player not spinning says no disc


Check to see if the disc is spinning. You can do this by one of two ways either
  • a:) Listen for the disc to spin after inserting it or
  • b:) Place disk in drive right way up (so that the label is not upside down). Load the disc and eject the disc again to se if the disc has moved i.e. the writing may now be upside down.
If the disc does not spin then it is likely that there is something wrong with the disc motor. If it does spin then the issue is more likely to be with the laser unit. Try cleaning the lens but if this doesn't help it's likely to be a more serious and ultimately more expensive problem.

Hope this helps

Disk is "shot" out from the player still spinning fast


Maybe got damaged during shipping?? Try also to clean the lens. Theres not alot the consumer can do with a cd or dvd player as you need special equipment to work on these units as there are no user serviceable parts inside. If its a good unit maybe it would be worth a look at by a pro. Good Luck
