I note that this a question about a disc that has successfully played once already! Which indicates that the disc player is ok.
Here is the method I have successfully applied many times.
Wash the disc in warm soapy water then rinse in running cold water.
Dry it gently with an absorbent lint-free cloth or teatowel.
(Always hold the disc only by its edges)
Then carefully inspect the disc surface under a good light. If you see any fingerpirnts or smears these can be removed with just a dab of methylated spirits on another piece of lint free cloth. Make sure it is good methylated spirits...not used and not the variety which is coloured purple or pink!
Finally, wipe the disc clean with piece of lint free cloth.
Now try and play the disc. If it does not work then it is either a poorly copied disc or has been damaged in some way.
When you get this sort of failure happen...make sure to play another dvd or cd straight away...not the disc you just played...this will confirm whether the player itself has an intermittent fault or not.

Never use abrasive materials on discs or the lens on the player.
Use a good "Wet type" cleaning disc to clean the lens.These are available from any Audio/tv retail shop or the "2 dollar shops."

Happy cleaning!

Won`t play dvd`s.try a cleaning disc no luck!possible dvd diode gone?any help please.Nigel...

Hi Nigel,
There are three reasons for discs not playing.
First, if the set has been lying for some time, the loading belt becomes lose and the loading is not complete. The result is no disc play.
Second, there is dust on the lense. Again the result is no disc play.
Third, the lense unit has gone bad or weak. Here also the result is no disc play.

My ps2 won't play DVD please help me

Playing DVDs on a PS2 is a hit-and-miss venture. Sometimes they play well, but many times they won't. Very unreliable. Not much you can really do about it, either.

WHY MY PORTABLE DVD WON'T PLAY

It won't play for one of two reasons:
1. There is something inside the DVD player, which keeps it from playing.
2. The DVD player's battery has run out of juice and can no longer play, meaning the player needs to be replaced.

Alba dvd/tv combo playing dvd's in black and white

There are a couple of things you could try with this. One, is to make sure that the video input is connected properly. The second would be to make sure that the DVD that played in black and white automatically changed your settings to PAL rather than NTSC

Does not recognize dvd drive

When you click Start/My Computer is the DvD drive shown as one of your devices? If not then try the steps below:
Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery, turn the laptop over and remove the one screw that secures the dvd drive and pull the drive out. After 20 seconds plug the DvD drive back in, and then try booting to see if it is recognized. If the drive is not recognized then you will have to remove upper and lower filters.

If you are talking about the drive won't play a dvd then that's another issue. Most times computers have a hard time playing something that was created by someone else. Try a store purchased DvD and see if it recognizes and plays it.

My Sony dvp NS710H isn't playing most standard, well conditioned DVDs.

Hello
Just clean its laser pickup lens, by inserting a lens cleaning disc in to, and play it at least two times. If it doesn't help you, the laser pickup unit should be replaced. The lens cleaning disc can be bought from most of the electronic sparepart selling shops at your town, and won't cost more.

When playing a DVD, picture & audio stop for a second one a while, no problem when playing a CD

this may just be the mechanism changing diretion as it reads the second layer on the disc usually because the film is too long to go on one side of the dvd disc.
quite normal.
but if happening quite a lot during playing a film then it could be something as simple as cleaning the mechanism. NOT for the untrained

ERROR CODES E24 ~& E4 54037380 ON MY DVD RECORDER, CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHAT THESE MEAN, THANKS

If you are trying to record vhs tapes to the dvr side, first you need to get 1x up to 8x DVD-R dvds. You can find them on ebay. The machine has problems recognizing the up to 16x type. Put the blank DVD in and let it load. Then start playing (not dubbing but playing) the videotape for at least 6-8 seconds. If you have somewhat of a lead-in on the videotape you can let it go even 10 seconds. Only after the videotape has been playing for this period of time, press the dubbing button. If the error code does come up, rewind the tape and start again, but in most cases the error code will not happen if you do it like this.
