How to fix the DVD player when it reads "bad disc" upon loading a new DVD.

Asked by Apr 06, 2014 at 08:46 PM about the 2004 Ford Freestar SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The van is new to me. Upon trying to play a DVD, the machine will allow the disc to load,
it makes noises like it is trying to read the disc and the screen says "reading", but every
time the machine then says "bad disc". The disc could be brand new and that code still
pops up on the screen.

Have you tried cleaning the DVD drive. A CD lense cleaner disc works well to do this.

Did you ever figure out how to fix this issue??
