DVD player

2 posts in this topic

Not sure it fits here, but something odd that I found with someone's DVD player recently.

I put a video in it and it started making noises (rattling I suppose?) and then wouldn't play. This same DVD player played 2 movies just fine afterward, so I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas what it is? My best guess is that the disc in question isn't balanced in weight? But this disc is played much in another player I have (my own) without any problems, so I'm not so sure... (Possibly my player has a better tray that holds the disc better?)

I've seen discs (not only DVD, but also CD) that we're not exactly centered,

resulting in its sides "crashing" left and right inside the tray's sides.

Of course it's also possible that the disc isn't flat, so it's oscillating

up and down in the tray.

Either way: if it's the disc, I would just make a backup of it and don't use

it, cause it might damage the drive in the end (and it's pretty annoying to

watch a movie with a rattling DVD-player). :unsure:
