Question about Pioneer DV-533 DVD Player

Disk is "shot" out from the player still spinning fast

When I insert a DVD, the display says "loading", I can hear the disk spinning, then it stops spinning, then it starts spinning again...then the disk is ejected while it is still spinning. I have just moved to USA and I have not used this DVD player before. I bought it in Malaysia (240 volts) and it has always worked fine there. The power rating says 110-240V so I figure that is not the problem. It has always played all region disks too, so that is not the problem either. Any clues?

Maybe got damaged during shipping?? Try also to clean the lens. Theres not alot the consumer can do with a cd or dvd player as you need special equipment to work on these units as there are no user serviceable parts inside. If its a good unit maybe it would be worth a look at by a pro. Good Luck

No disc spin-up when inserted or when powering up


The problem is in the pladder motor that spins the DVD, the motor needs to be replaced, but the problem is they only sell the laser pickup assembly, which is very expensive.

When loading a dvd it displays, "NO DISK". Is it


Hello
There are mainly three motors for most of the DVD players. One to spin the disc we insert in, other to load the laser pickup unit to-and-fro inside it to read the disc and an other one to load the tray mechanism 'in-out'. According to your description, the disc spins inside, and you can hear its spin. So motor which spins the disc has no trouble at all I should say. Then comes to the second motor that moves the laser assembly inside it. If it do not work, the laser pickup unit won't move and no reading will take place and 'No Disc' display will be the result. The last chance is with Laser Pickup Unit itself. Just get this unit repaired by any well experienced service technician or by the authorised service center, because, there are special tools to open this unit. As it is a compactable one, more care should be given to it while repairing. Suspect the second motor I described earlier, and the Laser Pickup Unit. OK.

Error reading any dvd disks


Have you tried a DVD+/-RW ?

The noises that you are hearing will be the spindle motor trying to spin the DVD as the lifting presentation tray for the read/write head has not located, if the media is not spinning this will never be able to read the lead in on any DVD as it has not presented the disc in the correct place.

If is is out of guarantee then I suggest that you check to see if the DVD is spinning by removing the top cover with the power OFF then eject the tray and try to load the media a small touch of the DVD in the clockwise motion should cause the media to start spinning, this is for diagnosis only if this is the case then the spindle motor will need changing

RCA DRC290 "No Disk"


The noise you hear is an attemp to read the disk, which fails. If you can gain access to the optics assembly, try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that fails to resolve the problem, the optics are likely failed and will need to be replaced.

Hope this helps,

My Sony DVP-cx995v stopped playing DVD's


I had the same "Cannot play" problem - happened suddenly, I don't think I was doing anything unruly at the time.

After checking repair (exchange) prices in excess of $250 from Sony, I decided to open the cover to see if I could see anything wrong - normally a futile exercise with electronics except that in the past I have cleared errant disks that have lodged themselves near the drive/player at the rear of the library.

Upon opening and watching the library try to load and play I noticed the drive itself was not spinning the disk once loaded. It would sit for awhile, thinking about it I'm sure, then would unload and load the next dvd, again failing to spin.

I thought okay, maybe try to spin the dvd while in the player to see if it's jammed or otherwise hard to turn. It was not hard to turn and spun freely. In fact, when I put my finger through the hole at the exposed side of the player at the hub to spin the dvd, clockwise, it suddenly started to spin - and play!

I put the whole thing back together to test and all seems to be working fine at this point. Not sure what would cause the motor to stop spinning and remain in that state through poweroff/on cycles etc. but I'm sure this is not the last time I will have trouble of this kind.

I would note that when replacing the library back in its home on the shelf, be careful not to tip the library, especially toward the player area because the disks will spill out of the carousel near the player and become jammed when you power it on and attempt to load. A final tip of the library away from the player area may clear this if you hear the disks rolling out of their slots and you don't want to open the top again (it's a darned heavy box when fully loaded).

Good luck!

"No Disk" message on front display


If when you insert the disk you hear a whirring and clicking noise, CD spins, and does not read, then that is a problem with the DVD lens.

The DVD lens try to focus on the DVD track, by moving lens pickup and spinning the disk, but cannot read the tracks because the lens is dirty or defective.

Try first cleaning the lens with a DVD cleaner disk. And also if you can see the lens from the outside try blowing some canned air on it.

If this still does not help, then the lens pickup may be faulty, in this case you often replace the whole DVD drive unit inside the DVD player.

Prism DVD-352P not loading any disks


What you are hearing is the attempt to read the disk. The unti detects that a disc is present and attempts to read it by spinning it first at CD speeds then at DVD speeds. It will attempt this a number of times before giving up and reporting "no disc". If you can get at the optics, try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Next try to read a CD. If you can read a music CD and not a DVD, it indicates that the optics are starting to fail and need to be replaced.
