Question about Onkyo DV-CP702 DVD Player

1 Answer

Onkyo DV-CP702 will not load any disks!

Hey, Maybe one of you guys or gals can help me out. I have had this thing in the shop twice now for the same problem of disks not loading. 1st time they gave me a new player, 2nd time they sent it off and repaired it. Now I'm out of warranty and they want and arm and a leg to look at it. I told them they couldn't get it right the 1st time so I wasn't gonna pay for another guess at fixing the problem. So I load the disk and it starts to spin and then it just stops and says no disk. I removed the top to have a look and the darn thing starts playing. 5 minutes later its back to the same thing again. It just refuses to load. I noticed a loading mechanism that looked as if it could be adjusted or replaced. Any suggestions on this before it gets trashed. I hate to do it because its not even 2 yrs old yet. And by the way my 2 yr old is screaming for her disney movies! Thanks

    My problem is similar. The cp702 plays CD's fine but when I put in a DVD it cycles through all the disk trays then say's no disk.

    having the same problem- the dvd's will not load. tried everything to correct the problem- and nothing. it is nothing junk. one would think you are buying something decent- not the case. never buy this brand again.

    exact same problem. tried reset procedure. it didn't work. initialize procedure in the manual doesn't work. it tells you to press the standby/on button while holding down the stop button. the only problem is the standby an on buttons are two different buttons and the procedure doesn't work with either one.

    Exact same problem. Started with the first one I purchased, returned it and got a second one. Then it started to no load DVD's but would load CD's. Now, it just cycles through all 6 dvd's and then says "no disc".

    I have the same problem, put in a dvd and it cycles through until the message comes up No Disk. I had my player for about 2 years before it crapped out.

Power steering makes whining noise when the wheels are turned from side to side. The longer the car runs the louder the noise gets. We have had the pump replaced twice and the hoses replaced and...

take it to another shop for diagnosis. Some shops just simply cant figure out some things. I'm a guy who works on cars from my house. there are a few local dealerships that call me for advise or send me cars to figure out issues simply because I know more about some complicated things than some of the guys working in the dealership. There is always someone who knows more, so maybe you have a bunch of guys that are over looking the problem for some reason. either by accident or lack of experience or lack of ethics or morals but clearly a problem exists and needs to be solved.

Onkyo DV-CP702 will not load any disks!


Yes, it may be a mechanical misalignment. You may be able to find a way to readjust the tray, etc., but probably the focusing of the laser diode needs reset. For a dvd player this old, you are lucky to the extreme that it still works at all.

Any dvd player over two years of age that needs major repair should be replaced as the cost of repairs will be greater than the cost of a new set! Sad but true. You will not be able to get the focus adjustment done for less than $50!

So, my strong advice is to get a new dvd player.


Does the player make squealing noises or is it totally quiet? Squealing noises may indicate that the player is trying to synchronize with the disc but can't due to an obstruction on the lens or in the laser path inside the pickup or a defect in the pickup. This can also be caused by an intermittent signal problem due to a faulty ribbon cable.

Totally silent means that the photo sensor is not getting any usable input from the laser at all, meaning that the pickup is "blind" for lack of a better word.
This can be caused by an obstruction of the beam by foreign matter on the lens or inside the pickup all the way to a marginal or failed laser diode and/or photosensor array. This can also be caused by a bad ribbon cable with one or more severed traces.

You could try to clean the optics. This is the most common malfunction as far as i know in all disc players. It would involve taking the cover off and finding a way to expose the lense, and then cleaning it with a very gentle brush. some players have a cover for the lense that swings to the side during playing, this greatly reduces the chance of dust accumulating, but its still worth the try.

If you actually see dust on the lense, then its just that simple. clean, close, play.

It may also be worth your while to check on the small shafting that guides the carriage of the laser pickup. Dirt, grome, dust and solidified lubricant can cause stoppage of the carriage and the laser eye then fails to read the next track. Please refer to the image below.

I have a 93 Toyota Camry and windows locks don't

Sounds like you need to find the fuse panel and check for blown fuse's first. Could also be the switches are bad as well. The car is 18 years old and things have just worn out. The guys and gals at just about any auto parts store are more than willing to help you figure out what is wrong and/or refer you to a good shop.

Hey my name is Gal i bought my Camcorder (GZ-MG330AU) a year ago. i havnt used her much and when i came to use it, the rec. button doesnt work. i have no idea what to do. how can i fix the problem? i didnt...

This is common problem for camcoder hard disk type (if it long time not used) . Please replay recorded AV several times of your Camcoder then start to record again.
If problem persist, you have to get it repaired in shop ( Authorized dealer shop is preferred).
It doesn't matter you bought it in other country, as customer you have right to get it fixed with reasonable cost.

Hey guys i help

Hi d_smog,
If you can make it to windows then go to start-run and type 'chkdsk' and hit enter. That will run check disk.
But I don't think that running a check disk will solve the problem, I am guessing that could be either a virus; because you tell me that norton went down at the same time your PC went down, in this case I recommend formating the drive; or it could be that your PC's cooler stopped working and the PC is overheating which causes an automatic shutdown to prevent the components from breaking down, in this case I recommend testing your PC's cooler and changing it if necessary.

CF 27 Original Boot Disk

What OS did you load? It originally came with either Win 95 or Win 98. I believe I've got the restore cd for the CF-27 Win 98 at the shop. I could burn you a copy.
BTW, how did you get it to load from a usb cdrom?
