Question about Apex Digital AD-1165

1 Answer

Apex dvd player-->open.close.open.close.open...you get the idea...

I inherited my late mothers POS Apex dvd player & I was going to throw it on my driveway to make myself feel better after it kept trying to load and would just open & shut.
I opened it up (if for nothing else to learn something) & the slide tray is functioning correctly but the spindle thing isn't "popping up" to grab & spin it. I tapped it a couple of times & it popped up. it would also pop up and catch if I rotated the disc with my finger.... it also loads & plays afterwards

The old man told me to just lube it up but trying to search for a solution makes me think not so I figured I would ask the pro's.

Thankyou much!

SOURCE: dvd player not loading

The lens over the laser may be dirty. Purchase CD/DVD player cleaning kit and follow the instructions for cleaning. If that does not work then it is highly possible that the unit may need to be replaced.

SOURCE: Loading...loading...loading...(10 minutes later)...no disc

I just fixed this problem. This will not fix any underlying problem, but it will get you up and running again. THIS MIGHT SCRATCH THE CD.
Unplug the unit. Remove the top cover. There are screws on the side and the back. Once you do you will see the dvd is not in correct position. Slide it around till you feel it drop into place. YES, YOU MAY END UP SCRATCHING THE CD. Plug the unit back in and it will eject.

For me the underlying problem is that the disc drawer closes while I am putting the cd in, causing it to not be seated properly. If anyone knows how to fix this .....

SOURCE: APEX Digital VCR&DVD PLAYER ADV-3800 will not play DVD's.

What it so far done, it looks pretty fine. I'd break apart the problem if is posible to do it, i mean maybe you have some other sets around the house or some friend who have them.

  • i'd test the dvd/vcr in a different tv
  • i'd test the tv with a different dvd
i would start over again the installation after this test.

the reason is to know if you can trust in those sets and second maybe with some other try the installation works

SOURCE: apex AD-1100W dvd/cd/mp3 player quit playing movies

hi,

Does it happen for all dvd disc or some particular dvd disc. If it is with some particular disc then clean the dvd and try them. If the problem exist for all the dvd then try to clean the lens by dvd lens cleaner and try to play. dvd lens cleaner will be available in dvd stores.

Thanks,

Need remote code for Apex AD-1201 DVD player w/Comcast universal remote (red OK button, black Comcast letters)


I don't have the original control remote for Apex Ad-1201 DVD player. I would like to use my Universal Remotes: Radio-shack USA "flag" 4-IN-ONE Remote and / or RCA 312W three component remote. I got the codes from the manuals but my DVD player doesn't work or turn off (only ejecting; open and close) with pause button. Could I get a possible code (s) for these Universal Remotes?

I have a apex 1225 DVD player and the buttons on the front ( the open/close button) broke off the little box that hold all 3 buttons together. Is there any place I can get a replacment part to repair this...


No,the DVD players are so cheap now,not worth the money or the time to repair the thing.Parts belong to the cheap prices devices are impossible to find parts or they never produced extra parts for it.Basic DVD players,CD players are disposible machines these day.U can buy new one,around $40 dollars.

Opens and closes repeatedly


hello,

The most common reason for the player opening and closing itself is a bad drive. The following website sells the drives and does installs:

store.richspsxparts.com/wiiredvddr

This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your player, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your player including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your player going again!
Hope this helps...

Apex Ad 500 WM won't open - disk stuck in player


Even though the player uses a DVD ROM drive there is no hole.

It is possible there is a loading belt problem in the Drive.....

Here's a link on how to replace the entire drive with an everyday... PC DVD drive...

Here's a link to anything you would like to know know about hacking an APEX,,, not only making it region free but improving it's playback quality (Not all models have improvements,,, but any drive can be better than what is supplied)

I have replaced one drive on an AD-600 and upgraded the firmware for a second drive in an AD-600... AD-500 is a similar model.

WHY WON'T MY DVD PLAYER WORK?


you can try this unplug the unit , you'll need alchohol, q-tips, screwdriver open it and look for all the flat cable connectors. be carefull and remove 1 side at the time ,and clean the contacts, put them back on , see if you can see the optic laser inside the mechanism it looks like a crystal eye, if you can reach it be gentle and clean the dust may it have. or buy at radio shack a cd cleaner. if after that your dvd don't work with dvds try a regular cd. if it plays music the laser its bad nothig else you can do. cheaper to buy a new one
