    disc will not read dvd cleaner will not work

  • oblio Nov 12, 2007

    Get message that "no disc is inserted". Happens also when I try to run a disc cleaner. The discs go in, but I get the same message.

  • JRomulus Dec 09, 2007

    I've had the same issue, "no disc" detected. If I eject and reload the disc about 12 times, sometimes it will then read. Some other times if I pull the plug, wait 10 seconds and plug it back in it will read.

    Sounds like it might be a dirt or contamination issue. It is an annoying problem.

  • Anonymous Dec 11, 2007

    When I insert the Dvd disc in it just makes a humming sound and tells me no disc has been inserted. I have tried cleaning it, but no luck. When I first started using the dvd player all I had to do was put in the dvd and hit play I never had to do anything else.

Take a swiffer duster, and shove it in the unit. Then pull it back out. Thats exactly what I did to mine, and it started to work again. Not even kidding.

Turn on my PS2 and I get a read disc error. Can I have the directions to fix this?


Disc Read Errors (DREs)

The PlayStation 2 was infamous for the number of disc read errors that occurred. There are a number of causes for this problem and a number of fixes:

  1. Clean the disc: Dust or smudges from fingerprints can cause disc reading problems. Use a high quality cleaning cloth and remove all smudges from the disc by lightly wiping outward from the center hub. Do not use a circular motion.
  2. Clean the disc drive: If not the disc itself, dust buildup in the drive is often the culprit. For the tech savvy, you may remove the disc drive, and gently clean the assembly with a cleaning cloth. For a less intrusive approach, use a can of compressed air, and attempt to blow the dust out from the vents and the disc tray, though this may also cause dust to settle where it is not desired.
  3. Repair the disc: If your game disc is scratched, it is sometimes possible to recover the disc with a disc repair kit.
  4. Ensure proper venthilation: To avoid overheating, make sure that your PlayStation 2 is placed in a well ventilated area, and that the vents are not obstructed.

How to clean electronic equipment


<li>Unplug any cables or power cords from the electronic equipment before working on them. Remove any component cables leading to other devices.<br /> </li> <li> 2 Wipe down the electronic equipment with a soft damp cloth starting at the top of the device and working downwards. Wipe away any accumulated dust, lint or dander.<br /> </li> <li> 3 Use a small amount of isopropyl alcohol on a soft cloth to remove fingerprints from any CDs or DVDs. Work from the center of the media outwards. Do not rub too hard or in a circular motion.<br /> </li> <li> 4 Clean a LCD television or <a href="http://www.ehow.com/computers/">computer</a> monitor screen by wiping a damp cloth gently across the screen once all power is disconnected. Wipe down the ventilation area to remove any dust. Clean the base with the same cloth.<br /> </li> <li> 5 Open a computer case by removing the screws that hold the side in place. Blow dust and debris from the interior with a can of compressed air. Start at the power supply and blow through the rear ventilation fan. Continue to dust the motherboard, component slots and case.<br /> </li> <li> 6 Insert a compact disc cleaning disc into CD and DVD players to better clean up these electronic devices from the inside. This cleans the interior lenses, removing dust accumulation that can lead to early device failure.<br /> </li> <li> 7 Rub down an MP3 player with a soft cloth and a small amount of ammonia-free glass cleaner.

It says unable to read disc when i put the game in.


Please Rate me!
What Is It? The Disc Read error is a simple one. It simply means that the Xbox is unable to read the disc that you have placed in the drive. In the majority of instances, this error has nothing to do with the functionality of the console, but, rather, hinges on the actual disc that has been inserted into the DVD tray.
Disc-Related Errors The most common reason for Disc Read errors are related to the disc itself. Numerous conditions can keep the laser from reading the information contained within the game, DVD or CD in the DVD drive.
  • The disc is scratched - Game discs, audio CDs and DVDs can become scratched very easily. Usually this is because they have not been kept in their cases, but left in the open. Simply resting two discs atop one another can scratch the bottom disc. If discs are sufficiently scratched, the data contained on them will be inaccessible to the drive.
  • The disc is dirty/dusty - Dirt and dust can build up on the faces of discs left exposed. When sufficient dirt or dust has built up, it can block the laser beam used to read the disc, resulting in a Disc Read error.
  • The disc is the incorrect region - DVDs come in formats called "regions." These regions match the region specified in the software of the DVD player. Some games also have these regions. If the region of the DVD and that of the player do not match, the disc will not play.
Can I Fix These Errors? Repairing disc-related issues may or may not be possible. If the cause is simply dirt and dust, you can certainly repair the disc. However, if the cause is due to extreme scratching, then replacing the disc is likely your only choice. If the disc is from the incorrect region or from another country, you will have to obtain the correct region. Returning the disc to the retailer for exchange may work.
Non-Disc Related Errors As mentioned, there can be some Disc Read errors that have nothing to do with the disc at all. In this case, it's time to troubleshoot the Xbox.
  • First, simply try to reboot the machine. Often, this will flush the cache or other error and allow the game to operate or the disc to play.
  • Second, try removing the hard drive and/or memory units. Once removed, reboot the console and attempt to load the disc with the hard drive and memory out of the unit. If this works, you can simply shutdown and reinstall the hard drive.
  • Attempt to play the disc in another type of player. For instance, attempt to play the DVD in another DVD player or the CD in a CD player. If the disc plays in these players, you may need to clean the Xbox DVD player.
  • Check to make sure that all air vents are open and are able to provide sufficient airflow. Overheating can cause Disc Read errors, as well. In addition, ensure that the power supply is unobstructed and uncovered. Much like the Xbox 360, the power supply can become quite hot and can cause errors if unventilated.
  • Check for disc tray errors. Depress the eject button and watch the tray extend. If the tray partially extends and then retracts immediately, you may have a problem with the DVD drive. If your Xbox is under warranty, this can be replaced at no charge. However, if you are out of warranty, you can install a new DVD drive on your own.
  • As a note, make sure that the new DVD drive comes with the same firmware as your original console, or you may experience additional error codes after the installation of the new DVD drive.

Fell down three times and now its not reading any disc but it still working. u can still go online with my ps3 slim(250)


Hello

Check the PS3's vents or its location if the power button alternately flashing red and green. This means it is running hot. Shut it off and wait for it to cool down.

Shut down the system if the power button flashes red and fails to operate. This means it has overheated and has reached a critical phase. Move it to another location where the vents are not blocked and it isn't in an enclosed area. Don't restart it until it cools down.

Open your PS3's disc tray and spray the inside of the machine with some compressed air, which comes either in a can or in a squeeze ball. This air will help remove any larger particles of dust or dirt that may have accumulated on the machine's lens.

Insert the cleaning CD into the disc tray and close it. These CDs often have no data on them and instead have a small brush along the bottom that cleans the laser as it spins over it.

Follow any on-screen instructions or paper instructions that may have been included with your lens-cleaning CD until the laser has been successfully cleaned, and then remove the CD.

Restore the PS3 to its default settings if the PS3 isn't able to read any discs. Go to "Settings," and then "System Settings." Under "System Settings," select "Restore Default Settings" and press the "X" button on your controller to restore the settings. Once the operation has been completed, the initial setup screen will appear.

Check to see whether the machine will load games or DVDs properly. If it still doesn't, you may have an internal hardware issue that requires sending your machine to Sony for professional repairs.

This is a very common error, you need a DVD drive replacement. Only an experienced person can do this, if you don't do it correctly you won't be able to play games again. If you'd like I can do the repair for you, contact me at [email protected]

Sony CX995v "Cannot Play" message on DVDs but plays CDs O.K.


Hi...
The laser goes thru a different lens arraignment for DVDs.
Take it to a TV shop and have them "blow out" the laser assembly with some CO2 and clean the lens.

DVD problem


It could be a couple things...
#1. Over time, dust and deposits can accumulate on the laser that reads the disc. In many cases, DVD players with this problem can still read CDs. You could try a DVD laser cleaner, which is usually a disc that has a tiny brush glued onto it. Run the cleaning disc 2 or 3 times, and try it again. Try both CDs and DVDs, since CDs are easier to read than a DVD.
2. After a DVD player has been used for awhile, another common problem is that the laser in the DVD player becomes misaligned, inhibiting its ability to read DVDs. In many cases, DVD players with this problem will still be able to read a CD. I'd try a cleaning disc first, since the only way to fix this problem is to bring the unit to a service center for repair.
Let me know what happens after you get the DVD laser cleaner and run it. Hope this helps.

Various issues can cause drives to occasionally balk at writing optical discs. These run the gamut of physical, hardware, and software troubles.

Inappropriate or dirty media may be to blame. Make sure to match the type of recordable disc to the drive, and check each disc for fingerprints or other contaminants. If a disc is dirty, wipe it with a clean, soft cloth in a straight line from the center hole outward. Try a quality optical drive cleaning disc if you suspect dust contamination on the drive’s laser lens.

Some discs don’t perform well with certain drives, even within their rated speeds. Try recording at a slower speed and then with a different brand of disc. Also, on PCs, verify that the temporary file storage area on the hard drive used by the burning software has enough free, defragmented space. Allocate at least 5GB for a DVD (9GB for a double-layer [DL] disc) and about 1GB for CD burning.

Disc reading


hi there

long reading time for cds or dvds only means that there might be dust or residues hindering your cd lens to accurately read the data of the cd/dvd. what you can do is try to clean the lens with a cd cleaner.always check the cd/dvd that you insert are clean and fre of dust . if this still wont work and the player still have the long time to read the cd/dvds, my advise is to bring this to a service center and have this checked out.

hope this helps.
