This is a used machine bought on ebay. Problem has been ongoing but got worse this week. It reads occasional disc first time. Often I must reload multiple times to read. Sometimes opens without reading. There is a whirring sound, but not steady. Sometimes it gets jerky with playback when I can get it to read. Once it starts to read it seems to work O.K. until next time I use it. Tried blowing compressed air to clean dust. Reset all settings to factory default (it worked for a day).

Re: Trouble reading discs
Well compressed air is ok to a certain extent. But sounds like you need one on one with laser. Open up and clean with soft cloth and alcohol, I found the best way to do it. let dry and try again. Hope this helps

At power on, enter the bios (usually by tapping a function key like Tab or Del or F2) and change the boot device order to have the CD drive first. Put the disc in the disc drive. Save and continue. Now, you may get a message asking you to "press any key to boot to the CD". Touch any key, and the reload should start.
06 means the cup dispensers jammed. Remove all cups and switch the machine on. if the cup dispenser make a clicking sound the the cames in the cup dispenser is jammed and needs to be freeed. if it works theres no clicking noise, switch machine off, and reload the cups in the tube that arn't directly over the cam hole. if this is an ongoing issue, tell me what colour are the cams (theres 5 and there black or white) and describe the cup that your using.
Possible that the disc is not reading and so the the TOC- table of content error must be referred.
It can be due to a poor head tracking or the failure of the data being read or processed.
Clean the head and use a good disc to be checked once again. If so the optical head can be faulty as it might be getting weaker.
I think the only option for you is buy a replacement drive off ebay (you want the same model doesnt matter about the FW version) swap the PCB of the drives over so the new one has your old PCB. The same thing happened to me but when I lubed the spindle the grinding noise went away for a week at a time, so I got fed up of constantly lubing it and bought a new one off ebay and swapped the PCB worked brilliant ever since. Hope this helps.
I my DVD-HR735 wont recognise any discs at times, and is getting worse. I've now discovered (out of frustration) that if I tip the front up to between 30-45 degrees, it will play all the discs it says were unreadable. I've started jamming three dvd boxes under the front of the machine when i want to play dvds.
