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?

Re: Disk is "shot" out from the player still spinning...

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.

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

"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.

DVD player problem

you allneed to make sure the disc is spinning in the player you should hear it whirr as ut builds speed listen closely to it and keep a hand on it to feel when the disk quits if it starts. its supposed to spin v ery fast do you think you could tell by the sound of it if its spinning fast. some times they make a clicking noise because the drive mounts have slid down in the case and allows the disk to rub or tap the case. please let me know what you find out. this is for all three problems. let me know the results so i can further advise you.

Cd's are ok but no dvd's...

Had similar problem. Found the disk was not rotating. Adjusted the torque on the hold down screws of the drive unit allowed the disk to spin. Still had some motor noise, but DVD would load.

The laser has become damaged/worn-out. There is no fix for it as replacement parts are not made for it.
