Insert Disc Message

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.

Hello! I get the error message when I load up 3.55 from USB. 8002F281 what's wrong? Best reagard Per Gustafsson


Error Occurred. Press the Eject button and remove the disc. Turn the power off and follow the instructions in the console manual

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, use this repair guide...it helps a lot....

WON'T PLAY CD'S READS "NO DISC"


  • 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.

    Samsung DVD player when disc put in after trying to load it comes up with a message disc error on all discs


    it can be two possibilities. 1)either the disk is faulty.check out in another player or drive and confirm whether the disk is properly working. 2)or the lens in the drive which reads the disk is either faulty or got dusty.in the electronics shop you get lens cleaning cd.insert that in your drive and play it.it will spin for a period of time and stop.then insert your dvd disk and check out if the same problem.then drive inner lens is faulty and needs replacement.

    "no disc" showing when disc is inserted.


    The lens cleaners are nothing but litle brushes that more often than not make the situation worse. If you can get at teh lens, use a cotton swab and a little alcohol to clean it. If that does not resolve the problem, the optics are starting to fail. The message is generated after a number of attempts to read the Table Of Contents off of the disk.
