Question about Coby Televison & Video

8 Answers

My dvd player over the past couple of days has not performed well in playing dvd's. It would pause often, skip at times. Now it slowly goes from loading, then slowly to root/title and not proceeding any further. I played the same dvd's on another player in the house and it works just fine. So it is not the dvd. I did clean it several times while trying to get it to play.

    I need more than telling me that my lens might be dirty.



    I need to know how to clean it.



    Do I have to take the top off to get to it? It is not too difficult to take out the screws.

  • myblueheaven Sep 24, 2008

    My dvd player skips, pauses or will not get past title/root.

    I am told that the lens might be bad. To me that is not enough.

    I need to know how to access if to clean it or replace it as needed.

Hi

cleaning DVD Lens.. you need 100% cotton or cotton buds, then open your DVD then slightly touch the lens with cotton buds then cleaning the lens in motion counter clockwise and clockwise then you cotton is dirty... then test run the DVD. now if the problem is the same after you test run, you need to replace the Pick up Lens the part # is 1200 W . Please let me know if the test run is done.

Thanks!!!

Not only should you clean the leans but you should also check to see that the carriage on the tramble arm doesn't have fuzz and dirt on it. the carriage is what holds the lens and it travles on a track back and forth to read the disk.you have to take the top off and expose the tray or carousel that holds the disk. looking down on the tray you will see the lens.and a housing [plate for the tray. remove the tray cover and this will expose the track that the carriage moves on. take a Q-tip and clean the lens with isopropyl alchohol not too much though. as far as the tracking carriage remove any fuzz or dirt and if you want you can use a small dab of mineral oil, if this is not available use olive oil it's about the same. leave the unit top off and plug in and make sure the carriage travels right. then unplug and assemble the unit. insert a disk as see if the problem is solved, iff not the lens is bad and needs replacement. if the cost of repair exceeds the value of the unit your choice would be just to purchase a new one... good luck please rate this solution.........thanks.........Ron

Buy a cleaning kit like this, and follow the instructions on the box. dissasembly of your dvd player will not be required. You put this in like a dvd and follow the instructions on the box.

If this does not fix, honestly its most likely new time for a new dvd player but let me know if it doesnt work and we will see what we can do!

How old is the dvd player? Over time a dvd player can go bad. The laser eye slides back and forth on two posts. I use to fix cd players on jukeboxes by applying a small amount of special lubricant to get them working again. Also a small amount of kodak cleaner for the lens can clean it if it's dirty. This is not suggested on a dvd player because it's enclosed and is very easy to damage the eye.

I would have a competent technician do it. Though if that's the case it would cost just as much to replace a dvd player.

    About taking it apart to get to the lens. There are tons of different types of dvd players and they all come apart a different way. If you are going to get to the lens, yes you will have to remove screws to get to it.



    If you wan't to be able to find a technician to help tell you how to disassemble it you will have to give them the exact model of the player.

The next thing you will want to try is a DVD Lens Cleaner. You can pick it up at any electronics store for about 10 dollars. This will clean the lens itself this is a common occurrence. If you still need any assistance let me know. If you have a moment to accept and rate my solution it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Lee

    Like I already mentioned you need a dvd lens cleaner to clean the lens. It is almost like a regular CD plays just like one and will have instructions on which track to play to clean the lens. You can pick one up at any wal mart, circuit city or best buy. If you still need assistance let me know. You can not replace the lens, and it is not economical to have it repaired. If you have a moment please accept and rate accordingly.
    Thanks,
    Lee

It sounds like a lens problem. Have you try cleaning the lens of your DVD? More likely the lens should be replaced if cleaning doesn't fix it.

DVD player skips and freezes


you have a defective dvd player. if it is only 3 months old take it back in exchange or repair under warranty. it all depends whom you purchased the item from. you could try running a cleaning disk, but chances are the players needs to be repaired, or replaced. Don't be surprised, i've bougth several in the last couple of years, two i had to take back the same day and exchange them. All of these electronics are made so cheap, it takes two or three units to get one good one. Try to stay away from RCA, Panasonic, and LiteOn.

Can I leave a dvd movie on pause in the player for a couple of days?


No, firstly the player will stop after a short time if it is left like this to prevent damage to the lens & disc. Secondly there is no real reason to leave it in pause for such a long period of time.

DVD burns properly but keeps pausing and skipping


Decrease the recording speed. Record at, for example, 8x speed. 4x might be even better. This will solve you problem.

I NEED HELP IN STOLLING MY NEW DVD PLAYER


good day,

just make sure that the colors are matched with the jock and the socket in your dvd player and your tv. just make sure that you unplug first your dvd player and tv while attaching the wires to avoid accidents.

just follow the color coding of the wires and cables and you wont go wrong. just plug in the your tv and dvd player to the electric socket and in no time you will be watching your favorite movie.

for the player, just press the open(eject) button to insert your dvd and normally it will automatically play. just hit rewind (<<) for playback and forward (>>) to skip some scenes. use the |<< button to go back to a previous section and the >>| to skip to the nest section. use the || to pause and the button with the square symbol to stop.

i hope this would help.
