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.

    Thanks- I will give that a shot first; and I didn't even think of cleaning it first. So much for perspective.

    Your idea worked great! I had to clean it 4 times and finally just left it for about 10 minutes cleaning, but so far all of the DVD's I put in loaded with no problems. Thank you.

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.

Every disk that I try to watch on movies shows no disc error message it won't play the movies but it does play musical CDs

There are several possible reasons why your DVD player is not playing movies, but is playing CDs. Here are some steps you can take to try to fix the issue:
  1. Clean the disc: Sometimes, a dirty or scratched disc can cause the "no disc" error message. Try cleaning the disc with a soft, lint-free cloth, wiping from the center outwards. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasives.
  2. Clean the DVD player: A dirty lens or other components in the DVD player can also cause problems with reading discs. Try using a DVD lens cleaning kit to clean the lens, or open up the DVD player and carefully clean any visible dust or debris.
  3. Check the disc format: Make sure that the movies you are trying to play are in a format that is compatible with your DVD player. Some players may not support certain file types, such as Blu-ray discs or region-specific DVDs.
  4. Check the connections: Make sure that all cables and connections are securely plugged in and functioning properly. Try using a different cable or port if possible.
  5. Reset the DVD player: Some DVD players have a reset button or option in the settings menu. Try resetting the player to its default settings and see if that resolves the issue.
If none of these steps work, it's possible that there may be a hardware issue with your DVD player, such as a malfunctioning laser or drive motor. In that case, it may be necessary to take the player to a repair shop or consider purchasing a new one.

CD/DVD player won't read discs

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.

Dvd player refuses to read any disc I load into the machine

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.

Trouble Loading & Not Registering To TV

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.

DVD appears to not be reading or recognizing discs

Unfortunately your DVD drive mechanism looks to have bit the big one.

You can try taking it apart, removing the top of the drive and cleaning the lense. Work it up and down. Use a q-tip with a little squirt of windex on it.

Reassemble and try it again. If you get the same results, it's time for a new DVD player.
