Can anybody help as I am totally baffled. I had a Sony DVP NS700V player which was "chipped" a few years ago and everything worked fine until last week.Then the players would say things like "disc is dirty" "no disc" etc even when there was a disc in the machine.As the machine was about 4-5 years old,I thought that the laser had gone. Went out this morning and bought a cheap Goodmans GDVD164 so that I could at least play discs. Anyway after setting it up and popping a disc in,it has exactly the same problem.Keeps saying "no disc" even though there is a disc clearly in the drive. It is connected to a Sony KDL - V32A12U Via scart as the HDMI is connected to SKY HD. Like I said I am totally stumped as both players having the same problem indicate it is not the DVD causing this.
