Question about Sony DAV-S400 System
Was getting no disc inserted message so I cleaned the lens which worked for about 2 discs then I had to do it again. This went on for a while but now that does not work. So in desperation took the cover off the drive. Watched the disc enter and you hear a whirring noise but the machine doesnt seem to engage the disc to spin it. Am getting desperate as I ma stuck on a boat with nothing to watch !!
SOURCE: No Disc
Stumpy, I think the first step could be to find out between the DVD player and the disc which one has a problem.If the DVD Player is able to play other discs then it is possible the problem is with the disc only. If that disc can be played quite alright in other DVD players then the problem is with your DVD Player. I suggest you trial that first. I think the indication of " No disc insert disc" could be that your DVD Player is failing to load or read the disc either because the disc has some scratches or because your DVD Player lens are not powerful enough. I am, Letsthank.

Tips for a great answer:
There may be dirt or scratches on the disc or internal lens.
First remove the disc and gently wipe from the center to the outside with a soft cloth. You can also try using the Lens Cleaning Kit (sold separately) to clean the internal lens. Then re-insert the disc in the console and turn the power on again. If the same error message still appears,

Check the disc you're using for scratches and dirt. If the disc is damaged it won't play properly, regardless of the CD player's ability to function. You can use a CD repair device like the "Disc Doctor" to repair the CD or purchase a new CD.
Clean the laser lens with a CD laser lens cleaning disc. CD laser lens cleaning discs can be purchased at most electronics retailers or online. Insert the laser lens cleaning disc and follow the instructions.
Insert a correctly-formatted, undamaged disc into your player. Listen to see if it begins to read the disc. If it continues to make no sound and gives you the same message, then the problem is probably that your disc is not spinning in the device.
Clean the lens while the DVD player is open. A dirty lens is most likely the cause of your no-disc error. The lens should be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol and a cotton swab.
