I'm afraid you are dealing with a weakened Laser on the unit. The cost vs. benefit ratio of fixing this unit is not worthwhile.

You will find that there are newer versions of this device on the market less expensive than what you paid for the unit you have now.

SOURCE: Player won't load any discs

I don't have a solution at this time. I have the same DVD player and mine stopped working this past weekend. It is doing the same thing as yours. I opened the case and loaded a disc and watched the mechanism. The disc won't spin. if you tap the disc it will start spinning and load and start playing. I thought I had fully fixed it. It will load most times but now the video and audio stutters as if the discs is spinning at varying rates.

Hi Allan,

When you get no disk error, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will start operating on certain disks better than others.

In that case you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD/DVD will not be read, therefore the error.

Whe this problem is starting you may be able to read only CD, DVD or Blue ray, or for example only DVD-R and not +R , or only to read and not to write and so on. After more prolonged usage , often the unit goes losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all.

In your case the lens does not work on DVD , but only on CDs for the reasons above , that is quite common.

If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens problem.

Try first using a CD/DVD or Blue ray lens cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does not work you will need to disassemble the drive , and clean lens directly with q tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the CD/DVD lens, or the whole drive unit.

SOURCE: Sony BDP-S300 keeps skipping Blu-ray discs and

The most common problem with blu-ray discs in blu-ray players like the BDP-S300 seems to be related to firmware issues. You can download the latest firmware from the Sony website here. Once burned to a disc on your computer you load the disc into the blu-ray player to update it.

I hope that helps.

How to rip DVD to Sony Ericsson Xperia Play


<a href="http://www.sonyericsson.com/cws/products/mobilephones/overview/xperia-play?cc=gb&lc=en">Xperia play</a> is one of the Sony Ericsson smartphones running the Android operating system. The phone features 4.0 inch LED-backlit LCD screen and a 1GHz Scorpion processor CPU. It is the first PlayStation Certified device. For game fans, it's really a good choice. With this mazing smartphone, watching movies also seems cool.<br /> <img src="sony-ericsson-xperia-neo-camera.jpg" /><br /> As we all know, most portable devices can't play discs. Sony Ericsson Xperia Play is just one of them. Maybe you have a large collection of DVD discs. So play movies on Xperia Play will be a good enjoyment. But, in the first place, we should rip and convert DVD discs to Sony Ericsson Xperia Play supported formats. Here I use this <a href="http://www.freedvdripper.org/">Free DVD Ripper</a>, it's a professional DVD tool. Below is the step-by-step guide:<br /> Step 1. Download the <a href="http://www.freedvdripper.org/dvdvideoguide/dvd-to-sony-ericsson-converter.html">DVD to Sony Ericsson Converter</a>. install and run it. Then add your DVD file. DVD disc or ISO/IFO files all will be OK.<br /> Step 2. Choose the suitable format for Sony Ericsson Xperia Play. i recommend you "Format &lt; Android &lt; Motorola Droid (x) H.264 Video (*.mp4)".<br /> Step 3. Click on "Settings" to set the Size (pix) as 1280&times;720 ( Play 720P movies on your Xperia Play in full screen with High Quality ). Or, you can set its video resolution as 854&times;480 if you need, it also can full screen.<br /> Tips: Click on the "save" to finish the settings. Or you can also click "save as" to rename (such as Sony Ericsson Xperia Play H.264 Video *.mp4) the profile for next use in Custom category of "Format".<br /> Step 4. Click the " convert" to start the process.<br /> After a short time, you will get the converted file. Then transfer it to XP. Now you can watch movies on Xperia Play as ease. Have fun!<br /> More info: <a href="http://www.freedvdripper.org/macconverter/dvd-ripper-for-mac.html">free dvd ripper for mac</a>, <a href="http://www.freedvdripper.org/free-mac-dvd-converter.html">free dvd ripper mac</a>.<br />

Product is stuck on loading


Check it by inserting an other known disc, which was playing without any problem. If with this disc too show the same problem, the optical pickup unit to your player shoud be replaced.

Hello
Either your DVD players Laser Pickup Unit is dirty or defective or its 'sled' motor has damaged. Sled motor is one, which spins the disc inside. if it does not spins, the main system IC won't get any signal that the disc is "IN", and will show the messege "No Disc". The same will happen if the laser pickup unit is defective or dirty. Insert a Head Cleaning Disc into the system, and play it for atleast 3 times. If there is any dirt or dust, this will solve your DVD's problem. If not, it should be serviced by any skilled technician. It is not a user reparable item, as you have to take out its loading mechanism completly out of it for repair. OK.

Screen says loading dvd- movie never begins


Sounds to me like the laser has gone bad. What you are seeing is video that is the start screen. The unit is trying to read the disc to play. You could try to tap the unit on the side to jolt the pickup assembly as maybe its stuck in a spot but don't hit too hard and use a disc that you don't mind if it gets scratched. It probably won't scratch the disc but just in case. The Laser can go out even thou its only a year old they are made very cheaply now.
Hope this helps some.

Dvd do not loads


Our started doing the same thing about a week after the warranty ran out. It has to do with the alignment of the discs being loaded. here's a work-around that works for us:
Open the tray
Choose which disc you are going to watch and use the Change Disc button to push the selected disc to the back (ie, if you want to view Disc 1, discs 3 and 4 will be visible in the tray).
Look down the center holes of discs 3 and 4... manually move your tray left-or-right to align the holes with the tray.
Push the Direct Play button on the top right of the unit for your disc of choice (Disc 1 using the example above).

hope that helps... I've searched for a while and played around with the unit (with and without the cover on) trying to figure out a way to re-align the tray, but no luck.
