Portable DVD player Scratches the disc

I've had this DVD player for about six months. Recently it started to scratch all the DVDs or CDs that are played in it. Why is this happening? My seven year old uses it the most, could it have been dropped? what happened? Appreciate any help i can get, Thanks. Romero

I have bought a new lens for a DVD Player. But it needs to be unlocked, before it can be used. I have fixed the lens in the player, but when i started it there was no laser beam emitted by the laser diode. I want to know what should i adjust to get that lens working properly. I want to unlock the lens. There are 2 presets on the lens, I tried adjusting them, but still it is not emitting the laser beam. Plz help me.

 Thanx & Regards.

Its needs a proper service. Some part inside is rubbing with the disc as the player plays the disc. If the scratch is at one place of the disc then the part is from the tray or dvd section of the body. if the scratches are all over the disc it at the movable lens. It need a repairing. And proper disc alignment. Lastly i would suggest is see to it that the DVD player is perfectly horizontal. This can also happen if the CD where it gets tucked in. Like the turntable head has become loose. that is it looses its grip while the cd spins. What ever the cause if you check all these angles can be solved.

Look inside of it to make sure your seven year old didn't leave something in it. And also there could be something left loose from the factor causing this.

SOURCE: My Portable DVD Player Battery can't hold a charge

Rechargeable batteries can only be recharged so many times. They begin to slowly lose their capacity after about the first 5 charges until ultimately it won't hold a charge anymore. It appears that this is your problem. Look for a model number on the battery & do a Google search for it if you want to try & replace it. You might also find it is cheaper to buy a whole new DVD player than it is to buy a replacement battery.

Game was new it plays then it may just stop in middle of game saying disc not readable clean with a soft cloth


Look on the bottom of the disc, if there are any scratches, use Brasso furniture polish to fill them in. A good guide to resurfacing cds and dvds can be found here:
http://www.geeksaresexy.net/2007/06/11/how-to-remove-scratches-from-cds-and-dvds/

If the disc looks okay then you may need to run a lens cleaner through the drive.

If you've done both of these things, you may need to look at a new drive.

It won't play a dvd! and when it does it just sits like it is stopped!!


Hello

Eject the DVD from the Cyberhome DVD player. Look over the bottom of the disc. If any dirt and fingerprints are present, remove them with a damp cloth, moving from the inner circle of the DVD to the outside.

Insert the DVD into a scratch repair device, if the DVD has any light scratches (deep scratches are not reparable). Turn on the DVD repair kit and the device literally sands down the scratch. When this is finished, the DVD should work correctly with the Cyberhome DVD player.

Avoid inserting homemade DVDs into the disc drive. The Cyberhome is not compatible with many self-created DVDs, causing a "Disc Read Error" message to appear on the screen.

Spray compressed air into the disc drive of the DVD player. The compressed air removes dust and other debris from the laser and reading lens in the player.

Im not able to play my dvd when i insert the dvd in the dvd drive


Does this happen on all DVDs and CDs or only on some DVDs?
If this is happens on all DVDs and CDs then this drive is faulty and needs to be replaced.
If it only occurs on some DVDs then check the region code on the DVD player and the region code on the DVD, the region codes must match.
To play DVDs from any region the player needs to be a region free player or you need to install a region free program on your notebook/computer.
For details on making your DVD player region free, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

My coby dvd player will not load dvds. After trying to load, I get a message that says "Wrong Disc". I have tried to put in other dvds, but get the same response. These dvds work in our other dvd...


its probably the laser is misaligned. somtimes you can maually reset it by takeing the disc out and sliding the "eye" toward the center. this will possibly break it, but a misaligned laser is not going to work so you;ve got nothing to lose. put in a disc you know is good, no scratches, and turn it on again.
good luck!

My dell dvd rom can't read some cds and dvds


you were saying some? and not all the cds and dvds? it may be that those other discs are unreadable anymore caused by scratches, marks, or the like. if other discs can be read then the player is all good. also check what file format you are trying to play. it may also be that the file format you are playing is not compatible with the program you are using to play it with like windows media player, media classic, etc.

Recently, my player will intermittantly show a blank blue screen on certain DVD's, not all of them. There were no scratches I could see on the discs. I bought a new DVD player and it did the same thing...


You are getting drop out of data from the DVDs, depending on the quality of the orinal DVD discs, some times they will deteriorate after few years. Look for any scratches on the lable side of the DVD. On some discs lable side where the reflective coating may not be protected well, if it is damaged it cannot be read.

My samsung dvd player will not play dvds, but it


Are you trying to playing recordable DVDs (DVD+R or DVD-R) ? if so, try playing original DVDs (the type you rent or buy) those are pressed DVDs - if it works, then your player does not support DVD-R or DVD+R - If you are using a computer burner that supports bitsetting you can change the booktype of a DVD+R to DVD-ROM to fool your player.

If however your player cannot play either DVD-R, DVD+R nor original DVDs and only plays CDs, then your dvd laser diode is finished - there is one for CD and one for DVD, this is rare but happens, there is nothing you can do, any repairs would be very expensive - you are better off getting a new DVD player they are very inexpensive now and any repairs will cost you multiple times a new DVD player.
