That noise sounds like the focus is trying to see the disc as it has to focus to see or register there's a disc. Maybe the turntable slipped down a little or there's dirt or film on the lens. Good luck

Trutech portable DVD player says 'no disc' all the time

You have problem with lease assembly. It may work if you clean it. You may use laser cleaner disk or take it apart and clean the lens with alcohol.

Audiovox D1812 Portable DVD player won't recognize disc

I have the same model, exhibiting the same problems. I bought it in 2005, and have used it only on trips. I bought mine at Sam's club and I emailed them and Audiovox and have gotten no response. It says little of Sam's Club or of AudioVox!

My Insignia 8" Portable dvd player does not detect dvd!

Try playing a regular CD first and take it out if it played. Then put the DVD and it will play fine because the player just realign its lense. Hope it will help

Wrong disk problem

Then lens may need a damp isopropyl alcohol qtip run over it a few times, use 90%. If that doesnt work then try a cd cleaning disk to put in the player. The cd or dvd may also be too scratched to read.

The laser has become damaged/worn-out. There is no fix for it as replacement parts are not made for it.
