Question about Philips Magnavox DVD/VCR Dual Player
SOURCE: Dvd reading
I had the same thing happen to a used DuraBrand 7" Portable DVD Player. Check and see if the laser transport is locked in at the top of the track -- which would be in position to read the outer edge of the DVD. The laser transport gets locked into this position and you get "no disc" error messages.
I removed the bottom of the DVD player -- a matter of seven screws -- and moved the laser transport by hand nearer to the center post of the DVD turntable. This cured the problem and my DuraBrand is working fine now.
I have no idea what makes the laser transport move to the extreme outer position and get locked there, but this solution works. Good luck with your own.
