    I have a Sky HTS3200 Home Cinema unit - yes it was distributed by Sky UK some years ago. It has stopped playing DVDs (message after attempted reading = "No disc") but will still play CDs, VCDs and MP3s.

    Any ideas on what fault is.

    Failed laser.

    Units which play multiple categories of optical discs have co-mouted or tri-mounted lasers.

    When one disk type plays and the other does not , it means the laser for that type has failed.
