Won't read d
d keeps saying bad disk
Hello, welcome to Fixya!
Was this player playing previously? And
how long have you been using this player? I suspect the lens of the
player. Once the lens of the player becomes weak, it won't play discs
The first thing my mind goes to, is the lens. The
lens id responsible for reading/loading data on discs. So if the lens is
unable to read the disc, there is no way the player is going to play
To confirm if actually its a laser problem, insert an
Audio CD into the player and see if will play. If it plays, then
obviously, your laser (lens) is weak. But if it doesn't play Audio CD,
then it might still be the laser (lens) or probably, a mechanism
Get a lens cleaner, use it to clean the lens. If that
doesn't solve the problem, get a screw driver, open the player's cover
so that you can gain access to the lens, use a cotton board to clean the
surface of the lens. This should clean dust or dirt that might be on
If non of the above solves the problem, then know that you need to replace the laser to a brand new one.
replace the lens, remove the bad laser, use it as a sample to get
exactly the same type and do the replacement. Note that replacing a
laser (lens) needs a professional touch, so if you cannot replace the
laser, get it to a repairman to fix it for you.
Once this us done, your player will play all DVD discs again.
