    We were playing a dvd yesterday when it suddenly froze. I turned it off and hours later tried to play the same dvd. This time it wouldn't play at all and I kept getting "NO DISC" on the screen. It won't recognize any dvd we put in it.

    Last night we encountered the same problem. Whenever we put in a DVD, it displays 'no disk".

    The spinner function of the DVD player does not seem to be working. The laser is okay and the project itself works fine, but the motor that spins the disk around seems to have stopped.

If this unit has a built in DVD player, then the player's lens may need cleaning. There are lens cleaning discs available for this. If the unit does not have a built in player, then the same applies to your player & there is no problem with the projector itself.

    Please advice what type of fluid it is and where to apply it. I have the same problem.


I had this problem once. I sent it in and they had to update the firmware. I don't recall that they did anything else, but, am not certain. I would start with that.

Not sure, but could be as simple as switching to a dvd-rw disc. Not all recorders recognize all formats.

Irregular performance...

sounds to me like your laser is gone.
Some discs are harder to play than others as some are multilayed, check online as to whether it is suitable to use laser cleaners these are like discs with soft brushes attached, you can get them from pretty much any computing place, i wouldnt know whether its sensible to use on a DVD player, but couldnt hurt anymore eh?

Some discs won't play anymore that played fine before

Update: Just found out from Netflix that the encryption coding on many newer DVD disks is coded so that the DVD recognizes that there is a player with a recording device; hence, DVD will not play--a copyright infringement defense.

FYI...the best suggestion I've seen is to hold the channel up and play buttons simutaneously....thereby causing the machine to return to the "factory initialized" state. So far so good for me. We'll see. photog1
