I would have to think that the laser lens unit is out of alignment. That is why it works after cleaning it for a short time. Bringing it to your local electronic repair shop should fix this problem at minimal cost to you. You did say it is one year old, if just over, then there is no warranty. You dont have to bring it to a high-end place for this simple repair because they tend to cost too much.

    You can try to physically move the lens mechanism yourself slightly and gently and try it every time. Chances are though, it might not work that way. A large buildup of dust or grease can prevent it from moving properly too and should be looked at first. The laser mechanism is a presicion instrument and not much can be done at home for it. There are repair shops that are much cheaper than others and do the same quality repair. There is a chance that the reader has to be replaced but trying the other solutions first could save you money.

Seems that your disc/cd reader which is in the DVD Player itself is damaged, try to move it a bit with your finger, blow some air out of your mouth at it and clean it again. If that didnt work, take it to protron shop and change the reader.

I have an elderly JVC dvd player; the videos appeared broken up, even the sound was in- consistant. i changed the batteries in the remote and tried several different DVDs, but no improvement.


Try either using a DVD/CD laser cleaning disc or if you are able to, open the case and manually clean the laser lens with a cotton swab. It may only be a dusty/dirty laser. If you choose to open up the DVD player, give all the internals a dust off with a clean household paint brush and a vacuum cleaner (*use care on both the laser lens and internals of the player to avoid damaging it). If this does not solve the corrupted image and audio, the laser may be at the end of it's life and the unit will need replacing.

Here's an example of a DVD/CD player laser cleaning disc so you know what to look for -

How to Clean the Laser Pickup Lens on your DVD Player X missing_author_image.png eHow Electronics Editor This article was created by a professional writer and edited by experienced copy editors, both qualified members of the Demand Media Studios community.

Is your DVD player malfunctioning? If you're getting a no-disc error, you may need to clean the DVD player's laser pickup. The laser pickup is what reads DVD's and allows you to view them on your TV. If you need to clean the laser pickup lens on a DVD player, follow these simple steps.
Difficulty: Moderate Instructions things you'll need:

  • Isopropyl alcohol
  • DVD lens cleaner
    • 1 Make sure the laser pickup lens is actually the problem. There are a wide variety of reasons that a DVD player might not read a disc efficiently. The disc could be scratched or dirty, for example. Test the DVD player with a disc that you know works before trying to clean the lens.
    • 2 Purchase or borrow a lens cleaner disc and try it first. You can find these things really cheap at any large department store. They usually get the job done well. However, you may need to clean the lens manually if the store-bought cleaner fails.
    • 3 Remove the outer casing of the DVD player. Remove the screws that mount the top casing onto the bottom of the DVD player and slide the top casing off. This will expose the DVD deck, which houses the laser pickup lens.
    • 4 Find the lens. The lens will be glass and under the DVD clamp. The lens will probably have a blue tint to it. If you are having trouble finding the lens, you could shine a light on the components and watch for the reflection.
    • 5 Use a cotton swab and some isopropyl alcohol to gently wipe the lens. Just a quick scrub will do. Dry the laser pickup lens with the other end of the swab.
    • 6 Give the lens a few seconds to dry and replace the covering of the DVD player. Test the efficiency of the player. If necessary, repeat the process.

Will not play blu-ray movie Date Night. I have tried 3 movies


Will it play other movies? If so, your "Date Night" disc is almost certianly defective. Try it somewhere else

If not, the player has a problem. Try cleaning the laser with a laser lens cleaner (something like this: http://www.buy.com/prod/memorex-cd-dvd-laser-lens-cleaner-6-brush-drive-cleaner-memorex-cd-dvd/q/sellerid/11408470/loc/101/10340589.html) Blu-Ray is more sensitive to dust because of the thinner laser it uses. If that doesn't work, more likely than not the laser has died or requires adjustment.

[Just for the record, I had an early DVD player (I forgot the brand name) that would play every movie fine except "Stuart Little". This movie worked fine on other players, but not in mine. It would enter the menu>special features all by itself. Let us hope you are not experiencing a similar case.]

DVD player will not play disc.


If you are loading a store bought DVD and that it what it say's. The transport needs to be replaced. roughly 150-200. If you are loading "burned" DVD's the format may be wrong and the unit cannot read it. Best suggestion I can give you is to first buy a "Laser Lens Cleaner" on that uses fluid. Any electronics store sells them for 15-20. Run it thru the unit a couple of times then try a clean, store bought DVD. If it plays, problem solved. With your DVD's, if you have any liquid car polish like mother's or meguiars, put a couple drops on the disc and spread around with your finger, let it set a couple then buff off with a microfiber towel. This works wonders for old scratched cd's and dvd's and helps protect new ones from getting scratched. As for the Lens cleaner, run it thru every product you have that uses discs 3 or 4 times a year, it's the best preventative maintance and only maintanance you can do on a CD player DVD or PC. Hope this helps
