    Same problem. Disc was stuck, took it apart and there is a slider underneath the dvd apparatus if you bring it to the side the disc will eject.

    Sliding peice is a thin plastic peice, about 2-3 inches long faced towards the bottom of the DVD player. This doesn't fix the problem, but at least I got the disc out safely.

I have had my Panasonic DVD-F87 Multi-disc DVD Player for over three years and within the last 4 months, it stopped playing DVD's. It plays CDS and CDRs' but it will not play a DVD at all (used to play...

Hello jwbabyj hi, 3 years of good listening to music on your player is rather good for its life, no device doesn't last forever, this failure is due to use, dust, temperature, shock, fluctuating power source and other external devices, which will make you player eventually give up. My solutions suggest the following:
  1. Clean your player lens, there are after market lens cleaners, buy one. and use it to clean the player lens.
  2. You may need to remove the top cover to have access to the lens for manual cleaning if the lens cleaner will not work out. Get one clean ear bud, and dampen one side with warm water, rub this in circular motion to the lens, 3 to 5 revolutions will do, use the other dry side to dry off the lens. replace the cover and test. do this several times until the player works.
  3. If still, this does not work, remove the cover and see if the lens glows visible light, to do this eject the tray, do not place any CD, then close, look at the lens and see if it emits visible light. No light bad lens. needs lens replacement. bring it for service.
  4. Check for worn out belts, does your player spindle spins? no spinning spindle bad player. needs spindle replacement.
  5. If 3 and 4 are likely, better buy a new one.

My dvd player plays cds but wont play dvds says disc error or unknown disc


how long have you been using this player? The problem should be from the lens (laser).

The lens is weak and that's why it cannot read/load DVD's. The weak lens is also what's making it says "disc error" or "Unknown disc". It can still play Cd's because, Cd's does not contain large files, unlike DVD's.

Get a lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens, but if the lens still does the same thing even after using the lens cleaner, then it means you would have to change the whole lens completely to a brand new one.

By so doing your player would play all DVD's with no problem at all.

Good luck.

The DVD-VCR unit won't accept any DVD - blank or with content. It says "LOAD" but then ejects the DVD. Same DVD works in an identical Samsung unit in another room.

You may have a dirty lens on the DVD read head. There are CD/DVD cleaning kits available at some drug stores and electronic stores. Do not get a "CD cleaning kit" (that only cleans the discs), get a "CD/DVD lens cleaning kit" (it will have a special CD and cleaning solution) for $10 to $20.
If that's not it the DVD illumination LED may be dead. If it still plays CDs, but won't play DVDs, that's the problem. There are separate LEDs for playing CDs and DVDs.
Either way, if the cleaning doesn't work, it has to be fixed in an electronics shop.

Dvd wont play says wrong disc

If this happen with all disks , then the lens are dirty or faulty.

Try cleaning the lens with a cleaner DVD. If that is not enough, then the player must be taken apart to clean lens with isopropyl alcohol and cotton, or to replace the lens pickup.

Before attempting repair call manufacturer or retailer to check warranty status.

After approx 1/2 hour of play the movie gets stuck for few seconds, plays again for 2-10 seconds, then permanently gets stuck. Sometimes a smack to the machine works, ff does not work....we usually just...

Smacking the machine is a good way to destroy the DVD lens. Get a CD/DVD lens cleaner and make sure there aren't any marks on the disk. Dirt & smudges cause about 75% of all CD/DVD player problems.

DVD player reads no disc. Was working just fine earlier today

Try these solutions: 1. Check to make sure the discs you are using are not scratched or dirty, if so clean them with a soft cloth and a small amount of rubbing alcohol on the rag. 2. Remove the cover from your dvd player by using a Phillips screw driver > Then push the eject button > Once the cd tray is out unplug the dvd player from the outlet > Take a few cu-tips and dip them lightly in a small amount of rubbing alcohol and with a small light source look in the carriage and you will see a small round glass looking bubble > This will be your laser optical lens, gently clean off the optical lens with the cu-tip moistened with alcohol > Repeat cleaning with a new cu-tip a few times > Dry off the optical lens with a dry cu-tip and let the dvd player air dry for 1 minute > Replace the cover and plug your dvd player back in and check to see if it plays the dvds.
You might want to invest in a optical lens cleaning disc which are cheap to buy. You should clean your optical lens at least once a month or as needed.
Hope this helps and let me know if it doesn't.

CD/DVD won't eject, won't play, Device Manager doesn't recognize.

If it's only 8 months old, then you have atleast 4 months left on your warranty. The problem will either be the ide controller channel or the dvd drive and firmware has faulted, the same fault probably happens when you have put a dvd in and it wont read or eject. Return to the place of purchase, where the drive should be replaced or the notebook exchanged.
