SONY DVP-FX730 - Fails to load DVD. "Cannot Play This Disc"

The Sony DVP-FX730 7 in. Portable DVD Player no longer loads DVD's or CD's. There is a clicking sound prior to the error message: ""Cannot Play This Disc". Sony customer support could not give any details for the error and can only suggest to have the player serviced. However the service cost is about the same as a new player. After some research I found this website, to query some opinions. My approach now is to try to fix it myself. So far five bottow screws were removed. Unable to open the player. Then noticed a round sticker which has a 6th screw underneath. However I cannot remove this screw. The screw turns as expected but it wont come out. Must be a special technique to remove it. Feel free to share any suggestions. Thx, GR

Sorry there is no unlock code for the DVD player. The reason why is because it is a portable one. You can not make a portable DVD player region free.

Good Luck

Desculpe n?o h? nenhum c?digo para desbloquear o aparelho de DVD. A raz?o ? porque ? um port?til. Voc? n?o pode fazer um player port?til de DVD regi?o livre.



Boa Sorte

Where can I purchase battery for fx730 portable DVD player


Unfortunately you can not buy a new battery since it is not sold by Sony. It is possible to patch a similar cell into your existing battery. Be warned that it would be difficult to do this.

here is an answer anyway--if will not play a disc "cannot play disc etc" usually it is either a dirty or bad optical pickup in the unit.

No matter what DVD I load in the player, it won't play the DVD. It says "Cannot play this disk". What's the problem?


The first thing to try is to clean the laser itself by using a cleaning disc. If that fails then most likely the pickup laser is no longer any good. This is usually obvious if you place an audio CD in the unit and it plays fine : )

Hi there, I let my daughter use my DVP-FX730 and next thing I know it's not reading discs. Actually says "Cannot read this disc." It's out of warranty and I hate to throw it out -...


Unfortunately the problem is in the laser pickup assembly, the only option is take rubbing alcohol and a q-tip and carefully wipe the lens and allow several minutes to dry, if you are lucky the unit will function, if not! much cheaper to replace the dvd player.

Wont play disc..what is wrong


Too vague of a questionbut here goes. 1. Check disc for scratches. Could be directory is corrupt. 2. Are you sure it is eitrher an Audio CD or a Video DVD? If it is a computer data CD it won't play. If it is a DVD Rom it won't play either.

Sony DVP-FX730 Portable DVD flashing "Hold on"


There should be a "hold" button to the left of the headphone jack that you can slide and it should stop your screen from displaying "hold on".
