Hi one solution to your probelom is that the lazer is underpowered.here is a fix it 4 u. A major problem began 2 years ago Some New DVDs would not always play. Message on LED display says "NO PLAY". I discovered today that the problem lies with the laser being underpowered for some DVDs. On the web I found a fix. Warning! Always have someone competent with electricity to fix the SA-HT80 with the following instructions: 1. Remove all disks from player. 2. When door is open slide front door cover upwards to remove. 3. Leave door open. 4. Important UNPLUG FROM THE MAINS! 5. Remove the 3 screws from under the front panel then remove cover screws. 6. Disconnect player from the mains. Remove cover. 7. Once you have removed the cover you will see on left side is the drive parts. 8. Pull out the two flat cables which go to the Drive from the vertical circuit Board(Hold the cable with thumb and forefinger close to the connector and slide the flat cables out of their connector. 9. Remove the screws fixing the drive unit to the base of the cabinet. 10. Now remove drive unit. 11. Placing the drive upright on a flat surface proceed to remove the two screws holding the Plastic bridge that sits over the disk. 12. Also undo the screw on the small circuit board which holds the disk sensor switch onto the bridge and unclip that small board. Remove this plastic bridge over the drive. 13. On underside of drive remove the two small screws from the drive circuit board. You can now gently prize this board loose.(There is some resistance as a plastic clasp is holing onto the underside.) 14. Turn Drive back to upright position. 15. Remove the screws which hold the drive in(Screws go through rubber mounts to cushion the drive). 16. Once you have loosened the drive look at the underside and you will see one flat cable goes to the Laser. Where this cable meets the metal part you will see a tiny device connected on the outside edge of the flat cable. 17. Turn the POT 1/5 off a turn clockwise(looks like a small washer and be gentle with it) I used pointed nose pliers for this. 18. Now reassemble DVD player. 19. Ensure cover is in place and screwed down before connecting to a power supply. This is a guide which you will follow at your own risk. Happy fixing Gerald

Panasonic CD player model #SC-EN7: CD will not play, keeps saying "reading disc", but the disc does not spin, the transverse deck has been replaced with no change in status.

There may be dust inside the unit on the laser. Try shoting some compressed air in the CD drive area to clean out. Also, ensure that the CD surface is clean, and try a different factory made audio CD. Sometimes CD players have problems reading "burned" CD's.

Can't get the CD to play at at times - it keeps reading "no disc"

My Panasonic SC-EN5 stereo hadn't worked for years; the screen always read "no disc." I sprayed it with one of those air dusters that had compressed air, and IT WORKED!! Thanks jack 007227!

Cd error

I hate to be the bearer of bad news... that error code means that you have a CD that's bad in the 6 disc changer.... If you're handy... you can take your radio out and manually remove the cd's and make sure that the 6 trays are aligned properly and not stuck together. (known issue) However, Lexus/Toyota does NOT repair ANY of their electrical components. They want you to pay for a NEW one at the tune of 800.00 PLUS installation... and they send the old one back to Japan and remove the CD's and mail them to you. (at no extra cost... as the service rep was telling me.. as to benefit feature me on the sale of the replacement unit.) Next be ready for the "Disc Read Error, Check Disc" on your navigation... lol.. it's a 2.10 motor that moves the lens that reads the DVD navigation CD.. and once again .. they don't replace or repair... that's a 4500.00 item plus installation.. GOTTA LOVE YOUR EXPENSIVE CAR NO? ;)

CD player ate a CD!!

I fixed the same issue by forcibly pulling individual trays to their open position.  I removed the casing to gain better access (tons of screws) but you can probably gain clear access to the shelfs without removing the casing if you have good needlenose plyers.  I found a stuck CD within one of shelfs, wedged WITHIN the moving components of the shelf.  It works perfectly now.

Panasonic Home Theater SC-HT80 "NO DISK"

The problem is that the DVD section is not working properly and can not detect the disk. Try a music CD. If that works, then the problem is either a dirty lens that is not allowing sufficient laser light through to read teh DVD or the optics are failing and need to be replaced. If you can post the model number, I can give you an estimate for the repair cost.
