Question about Audiovox Televison & Video

1 Answer

Plastic spindle that holds DVR is broken. I would like to find a replacement part to change the broken piece. The broken piece appears to be pressed on as it came off easily enough so replacement should not be difficult.

There are 2 possible causes. Either the bearings for the spindle motor, or the tracking mechanism for the laser. It depends on when you're hearing the noise. If the noise is heard continuously then the spindle motor bearings may simply be dirty. If this device has hinged lid to allow the loading of your discs; then open it and remove any loaded disc. In the middle is where the spindle motor is mounted, and the locking mechanism that holds them into place. One small drop of lightweight household oil such as what you'd use to lubricate an electric shaving device would be all it takes right into the spindle top where you press with your finger to unlock your loaded discs. Put in a drop and spin it with your finger.
Next, look into open space of the chassis where the laser is mounted. Use a cotton swab or small brush to remove any dust or grime from way screw and guide shafts. Look at the plastic gears for broken teeth. There will be ribbon style electric cable connector; make sure that a loop of it isn't sticking up into the area of the disc tray...if it is, carefully reposition it.

The dvd open/close will not work. It does not open or close when pressed by wither remote or manually.

Mine does the same thing, it appears there is a white plastic piece of the track that slides is broken. If I take the cover off and look in the front right hand side I can push it with a pen while pressing the open button and it works. Now if I could replace the plastic piece I would be all set.

DVD drawer will not open lite on LVC-9016

I had this problem, and found that the cause was that the mechanism that lowers the disk spindle to allow the drawer to open was not strong enough to overcome the magnet that clamps the spindle into position when it it is closed. The following procedure fixed the problem:

Unplug the unit, and remove its outer cover (eight screws, four on the sides and four on the back)

Remove the thin metal cover over the DVD drive (four screws)

There is a round metal cover on the top of the drive. It is glued in place. Carefully pry it loose. Be careful not to bend it.

The spindle clamp assembly is beneath this cover. It consists of a plastic housing and a metal insert that holds a black fabric gasket and a small, donut-shaped magnet. Remove the entire assembly.

The metal insert is held inside the plastic housing by three bayonet-style prongs. Rotate the insert to free it, then remove it.

Remove the black fabric gasket and the magnet from the metal insert.

Here's where it gets a little strange. The problem is that the magnet is too powerful. Estimate its power by placing it on any iron or steel surface and note how much force is required to dislodge it.

In order to reduce its power, hold it over a range burner or torch for a minute or so. (Honestly, this amount of time is a guess. I "overcooked" my magnet to the point that it lost virtually all its power. The repair, however, was still successful.)

Check the magnet's power again by placing it on the same iron or steel object. It should be significantly weaker.

Reassemble the spindle clamp. Drop it back into place in the plastic top cover of the drive. Replace the thin, round metal cover over it. (In my case, the old glue was still good enough to hold it in
place. The spindle clamp will not pop out of the top of the drive- it is held down by gravity and by magnetic attraction to the spindle.)

Plug the unit in and test the drawer opening again. If it still strains but does not open, disassemble the spindle clamp assembly again and "cook" the magnet some more, then reassemble it.

After verifying that the drawer opens normally, replace the metal cover over the drive and the outer cover of the unit.

DVR-S120 doesn't play any cd's

I have come across one DVR-S120 that has a shorted spindle motor. This is the motor that spins the disk. Therefor the unit will not play a cd or dvd. Yamaha sale's the complete dvd Assy. for $300 witch is absurd.

DVD doesn't spin

The spindle motor could be burned out. If so, it's not worth repairing unless you could find on ebay an equivalent unit and change the part yourself.

Panasonic dvd-ls91 erro code H03

I experienced the same dreaded H03 error code recently. The fix was simple:

Open the DVD lid. In the center is the black plastic spindle. To the right of the spindle is the laser reader which slides from side to side.

When my player was in error mode, the laser reader was stuck in the far right position on the track. To fix the problem, gently, but firmly push the laser reader to the right until it clicks in to proper position. For mine, I pushed it to the right about an eighth of an inch before it clicked.

Insert a disc, and turn the player on. This should fix the problem, at least it did with mine.

Plastic thingee

Are you talking about the spindle turntabe that the disc sits on? or the clamper on the lid part?? Eather or Im sorry to say probably wont be worth fixing if you take it in to a shop or send it to their main depot for service. Unless you can contact the company and get the parts your self so you can take apart the player and replace the parts.. Good Luck
