LG DVD player Disc Error message even when playing lens cleaners!

My LG (LX-D5230) DVD player has stopped playing DVDs, saying "Disc Error" and ejecting every time I try anything, INCLUDING 2 different brand new lens cleaner discs that I've tried (philips and another). Any ideas?

blue ray players takes one to two minute to read the content. it will not read as fater as dvd. give some time and then find out what the player says. error or no disc. also check ur BD's region and the region of the disc u inserted. BD's comes with only one region.

DVD player will not play Dvds error message saying incorrect disc


try running a dvd lens cleaner through it if that doesn't work then the dvd portion is not working but you can always use a regular dvd player plugged into one of the inputs.

You can purchase a DVD lens cleaner for under $10 just about anywhere DVD's are sold

My 2 1/2 year old LG dvd/vcr recorder will play some dvds but will not play others. It says unknown disc. I was told to try a lens cleaner; I bought one and the lens cleaner says unknown disc as well. ...


Hi,

Your DVD /VCR says unknown disc because the
dvd which you have inserted is not of the supported format by player.

If you insert unsupported formats only it will say as unknown disc.This is not related with disc cleaners.

Please insert the supported formats and it will play the disc.

Thanx

No DVD is playing and says disc error all times. The same DVD plays on my computer. I have tried many DVDs and the same error everytime


Hello,

how long have you been using this player? The problem should be from the lens (laser).

The lens is weak and that's why it cannot read/load DVD's. The weak lens is also what's making it say disc error.

Get a lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens, but if the lens still does the same thing even after using the lens cleaner, then it means you would have to change the whole lens completely to a brand new one.

By so doing your player would play all DVD's with no problem at all.

Good luck.

My dvd player plays cds but wont play dvds says disc error or unknown disc

The lens is weak and that's why it cannot read/load DVD's. The weak lens is also what's making it says "disc error" or "Unknown disc". It can still play Cd's because, Cd's does not contain large files, unlike DVD's.

My LX d5230 has stopped playing Audio Cd's. It just spits them out showing "Disc Error". Any Ideas anyone?


Hi.
If you get Disk Error only on few CDs, then it can be the media (CD scratched, defective or dirty).

If you get the error on all or almost all CDs, then it is usually because of a lens problem.

You will need to clean the lens.

Player won't read the DVDs


some players won't play burnt discs. If you are using a factory made disc and you still get this, then you can try and clean laser lens with rubbing alcohol and cotton swab.
If the cleaning doesn't work, then the laser lens circuit will need to be replaced.

WRONG DISC ERROR WHEN PLAYING A DVD


HI,. this is a lens assembly fault. the lens is malfunctioning or, it may have stopped reading. this wrong disc code is just a universal warning that is concerning a fault if the main board doesn't receive any data(audio,video) when the disc is inserted.

Due to the integrated status of your unit, this will be a costly repair because, the entire assembly is combined together with the vcr section as well.

You will need to replace the entire assembly to fix this issue. the lens has burned out.

you can confirm my diagnosis by preforming a cleaning of the lens with a cleaning disc. if the unit continues to not read or play a CD after the cleaning, this will confirm my diagnosis.

Please rate and have a great day:)
