LG DVD player - Disc Error

  andyjck208 18:31 09 Apr 2018

Hi. I recently bought a 2nd hand LG HT805TH 5.1 surround sound with DVD player etc. No matter what disc I put in, it would spin then get spat out with "Disc Err" written on the unit. I bought a DVD cleaning disc from Maplin and the DVD player recognised the disc and plays it like normal! What on earth is going on? Please help! Andy

Take/Send it back

I bought the whole system for £50 and the USB, aux and all speakers work but it's main use would have been for the kids DVDs. I can't take it back, must be +5 years old

They probably sold it because it stopped working.

You've been conned.

Having said that, you may be able to get a DVD Player that will work with your PC and therefor the Speakers unless they require an auxiliary Amplified

What region is the player set to and what region are the DVDs you are trying to play.

Can you play music CDs on it.

Hi Alan. I can't play any CD's other than the cleaning CD

OK,this is inconsistent. You have said it is a DVD then a CD, which? Is the cleaning disk a CD or a DVD.

A DVD drive has 2 lasers incorporated. The first is for reading/writing DVDs, the second for reading/writing CDs which works at a longer wavelength.

You also have not answered what region the DVD is set to.
