Question about Curtis CD094 Personal CD Player

1 Answer

Curtis CD181 problem

I have the above personal disc player.

It turns on no problems, I put a disc in and press play and the disc spins
but no sound and the display shows 2 underscore lines. Then er shows
on the screen.

When I open and remove the disc, the laser eye is as close to the middle
of the player as it can possibly go. I tried moving it by hand back to the
beginning and it does move but when I repeat the start up and remove the
disc again, its back at the opposite end again.

Is there a reset button somewhere inside? Or is this a hopeless situation?

Please let me know and thanks for your time.

Pete

I had a similar problem on one of my cd players. I traced the fault to the tiny wires that connect the electronics in the base to the buttons and screen on the top. There is a small ribbon cable that bends every time the lid is opened and over time this can severe the very small wires there. Check that first, but also clean the CD read head with a CD disc cleaner.

Try playing Different DVDs, Second Make sure which Region Disk your playing is it Region 1 or Region 2, If your DVD player is Manufactured in USA it plays only Region 1, If its manufactured in UK it plays only Region 2, If still you face same problem Use Lens Cleaner, If still you face same problem do Reset.
To Reset Dvd player, Remove DVD from Dvd Player, Unplug Power chord from Walloulet for 15minutes so player goes to Defult Factor Settings, Then plug back again Power chord. Turn on Dvd player insert DVD, It should Play or else Claim Warranty.

SOURCE: Curtis DVD 5091 Home Theatre System

I believe I have the solution....but it depends on your dvd player's zuxilarily capabilities. Do you have a second set of OUTPUT plugs that are colored Red and White on the back of the TV? Do you have a separate Red and White INPUT plugs on the back of the dvd? The TV must use the speakers in the DVD system by pushing the sound OUT. You cannot accomplish this if the dvd is only pluged into the INPUT of the tv.
\Another option is o make sure your DVD player has a "auxilary" or separate input channel on the console or remote.
I have a DVD home theatre system as well, not the same brand, but that shouldn't make a difference . Its a matter of how the sound is received.

Hope that helped.

SOURCE: Curtis DVD8007C says "No disc"

never heard of powered up on caps. But first try using and IRIS cleaner to remove dirt and dust from the laser eye. The disk has a brush embedded in it and is just run like a normal disk. It sweeps the dirt fromm the eye and then SHOULD be able to see it really does have a disk.

My Curtis dvd player 1046 won't play dvd's, it says its loading then it says bad disc


First, try playing a regular music CD and see if that works. Next step would be to get a laser lens cleaner disc and run that in the machine. They come in both CD and DVD styles. You most likely won't get a DVD version to work since it's not reading DVDs, but you might get lucky and get a CD version to work, thus the reason for trying a music CD in the player.

If the cleaning doesn't work, or you can't play a CD either, then something has most likely died. There are really only two things that could go wrong with a DVD player, either the spindle motor (spins the disc) dies, or the laser dies. Both are somewhat common problems on low-end electronics. They can be fixed, but with low-end units, like those made by Curtis, it would cost you less to toss it out and buy a new unit.

Now, when I insert a disc, the player just indicates "loading" and will not play the disc. Just prior to this, it would play the movie part way then "freeze". I couldn't rewind or...


Please try to put in an ordinary audio CD track and see if this is detected. If yes the optical is working, if not there is no laser scanning and the possibility of the head being faulty is high.
Certain cleaner disks may not work but the best is to cleaning manually the laser head eye with a cotton bud, very gently and without pressing of the lens eye.
If there is still no result then watch the CD if it spins or tries to spin. If the head unit moves up or down to focus or in and out of the drive, if so the board seems to work correctly and the possibility that the optical head unit is the suspected fault.

I get a no disc error and so far blowing air in it has not helped


Hi,
It sounds optical laser lens is dirty and need cleaning.
Put lens cleaning disc in player and press play, disc will spin and might clean lens to solve the issue.
If that does not fix the problem, unplug player from wall socket, take off top cover and clean lens with good quality cotton bud gently and then check does it play disc. If problem still exist then optical lens got defective and need to be replaced. Local tv repair shop will replace it but replacement would cost you much.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.

Will only play about half the dvds that we put into it. once in awhile if you turn it off and on it will read the disc.


This sounds like the spindle is not spinning the media you may need a new motor, take the top off to see if when you press play the dvd spins this will confirm this

I put a dvd in and after a minute of cycling it say ''no disc''. Its a Curtis sdvd7015 portable dvd player and the dvd is clean.


I've had similar problems with a number of my DVD players in the past. What always worked for me was to fiddle with the DVD door, i.e., press in slightly, press up or down, hold in place until DVD starts playing

My Shanling CDT200 CD player does not spin when I put the down lid or press play. Can you please help? The problem began by first what sounded like a clicking sound & interrupted play. The player is...


This is the case in most CD Players. . .

when you close the lid, it will try to read the CD.
If it recognizes and reads the cd, the cd will spin-up.
If not, it would say no disc.

try to clean the cd-player's lens by using a commercially available lens cleaner. if it still persists, it need a new optical mechanism.

Disc Error when I try to play a dvd LG DP781


Hi,

Sounds like either a dirty or weak laser/lens. Pls try cleaning with a CD disc cleaner or manually using cotton buds (if the eye is accessible).

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

If there is a "HOLD" switch, that needs to be turned OFF. Then, just put the CD in, making sure it fits properly on the spindle, and then press "PLAY" (will look like a ">"). It should start working.
