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

Re: Portable DVD player Scratches the disc

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.

Re: Portable DVD player Scratches the disc

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.

Re: Portable DVD player Scratches the disc

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: can't play recorded dvds on other dvd players

are you finalizing the discs after recording? some recorders do this automaticaly others have it as an option you have to select.. without finalization they will play on your own recorder but not on other machines.

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.

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


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.

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!

When I load a disc in I get a message saying,(NO DISC).I bought a cleaning disc but it still comes back,(NO DISC)

Does it do this with just one disc or several? If its just one disc, check the disk for scratches. Deep scratches or scratches which extend along the curve of the disk will affect playability. If your player is giving the same error on all discs, check to see if the lid to the disk player is closing securely. If that is not the problem, you would need to contact the manufacturer for service. The link is:

Good luck. Let me know if that works.

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.

Portable durabrand dvd wont read disc

If it is reading a burned movie from the internet make sure you set you brun software for captability mode.

If this is a orginal disk make sure its free of dust and scratches.

1. buy a lens cleaning kit from walmart or any other eletronics store.
2. Make sure the disc is free of scratches.
3. change disc's and see if it works on any others.

if these steps do not help then the laser would need to be replaced. Durabrand is a Wal mart brand i had mine for 2 years and i had to clean the lens 3 times with a cleaning kit.
