No disc error showing up-takes 20 tries to bring up dvd
About 3 weeks ago the DVD Player started having trouble loading and telling me there was no disc in the slot; at first I thought it was a bad or cheap DVD- now all the DVD's take either 20 or more times of opening closing the loader to play. The funny thing is all of the CD's play no problem with Audio- and load the first time.
Re: no disc error showing up-takes 20 tries to bring up...
Maybe the laser is unable to focus on the smaller pits and lands of a DVD disk but can see the relatively large pits and lands from a CD just fine. This may be solved by using a CD/DVD cleaner disk. It's a disk with small brushes on it that attempt to brush dust from the laser's lense. They don't always work but that's what I'd try.

Firstly you need to get a Lens Cleaning Kit from KMart, BigW or your countries version of a Supermarket. Use that on the DVD player and then check all your discs for dust and dirt. Clean the discs by lightly wiping from the inside to the outside in a circular motion. Next step if that doesn't solve the problem would be to take the cover off ( ensure unit is off and unplugged from the power source) and check if the lens is not covered with dust, lint, fluff etc. If covered wipe lightly. NEVER LOOK DIRECTLY AT THE LENS LIGHT
dvd player keeps saying no disc when I try to play a dvd.what can i do? worked fine until about 3 months ago. started to say no disc when disc inserted but after opening and closing 3 to 6 times it would read.now it just wont read. any ideas?
Hello I was looking to try and help you with your DVD player, we will start by loading a music cd store purchased, no burned cds please, if the cd loads and plays then your dvd player is either out of adjustment or going bad, most dvd players, i have worked on, will load and play a music cd, but will show loading errors when trying DVD's. If the music cd dosen't load then there could be an issue with the drive or tray. If the music cd plays just fine, then your laser is either out of adjustment or going bad. You can call the manufacuter to see if there is a process for resetting the DVD player, not all DVD players have this option, if resetting the DVD player dosen't work, but music cd's do then your laser lens is dirty or going bad. At this point you have three options 1) Take it to a repair shop, 2) Get an new one, 3) Get your hands dirty if your really handy and know what your doing to clean and replace the laser. I hope I can be of further assitance and I look forward to helping in the future, Thank You and have a nice day.
I can't say 100% but it sounds similar to the problem I had with the same model . The sleep mode in the on/off switch had gone bad and a new switch fixed the problem. It was about $42 to rtepair at my local electronics repair shop. Hope this helps.
try to clean your machine by playing a lens cleaner disc coz the lens might be dirt enough not to pick on data from the discs you play. if it does not work then isuggest you change the lens coz it might be weak
