Overtime the laser pickup becomes weak until it can no longer play, try cleaning lens with a Q-Tip and rubbing alcohol gently, allow several minutes to dry. if no change! cheaper to replace the player.

SOURCE: DVD player issues

Most likely the dvd is dirty, scratched, or chipped. Try cleaning the dvd disk with a soft cloth (chamois works best). Look at the surface of the disk and if it is scratched lightly, dust and dirt particles, fingerprints, etc will cause refractions from the laser light in the dvd player, which is then read as an error by the dvd player. Cleaning it with a soft cloth will sometimes help.

If that does not work, hold the disk up towards a light source and look for light coming through from the other side. If this happens, the disk is unreadable and unrepairable as the data source has been corrupted.

Hello
I had that problem, the problem is that where you put the disc (the black Circle) tends to get a bit loose so it moves downwards.

so the distance between the lens and the under surface of the DVD / CD is reduce, so the beam is NOT return to the lens.

The way I fix it is by pulling the black circle EXTREMELY carefully and SLOWLY while you are turning it.

Once is out, with a toothpick or a needle put a small amount of crazy glue in the inner walls of the hole that is in the center ( where the pole of the rotor goes in) this way the hole is reduce.

Wait till it dries, then gently put it back in, it will be a tight fit, IT MOST NOT GO ALL THE WAY IN!!!

By this i mean that you will see the pole of the rotor go into the hole, but it most not reach all the way, it should be below the surface. The distance between the end of the pole and the surface of the black circle should be THE THICKNESS OF THE BLACK CIRCLE.

The way to know that the distance is right, put in a CD and play some songs, then try it with a DVD.

If it reads no disc it means you inserted the disc to much, pull it out a bit, then try again.

Once it reads both CD and DVD, fill in the hole with a drop of crazy glue, this way the black disc will not move anymore.

One more thing, I do not recommend to use alcohol in the lens, 'cause some lenses are now made of polymers non resistant to abrasive, instead use a cue-tip (cottonete, little pole with cotton to clean your ear) moistened with bottle water or distiled water.

Note MOISTENED not soaked or wet.

Hope it works for you.
Best Regards
Luis.

SOURCE: PORTABLE DVD PLAYER NOT SPINNING DISCS AND SAYING NO DISC

When it is region lock it will say it on the display, if the player is not reading any disk, it is more likely a lens problem, see below:

Try first using a lens cleaner disk, like the ones here.

If that does not work, the unit must be disassembled, and lense cleaned with q tips and isopropyl alcohol or cleaning solution. See below:

SOURCE: my portable dvd player shows no disc when i put my dvd in player

Hi....
Very lightly clean the laser lens ( looks like a very small eyepiece)
with 91% or better alcohol on a swab. Then very lightly dry it off.
Also..have you tried another DVD or CD in it?
Check for dust or debris in where the laser pickup is

SOURCE: portable durabrand dvd wont read disc

If it is reading a burned movie from the internet make sure you set you brun software for captability mode.

If this is a orginal disk make sure its free of dust and scratches.

1. buy a lens cleaning kit from walmart or any other eletronics store.
2. Make sure the disc is free of scratches.
3. change disc's and see if it works on any others.

if these steps do not help then the laser would need to be replaced. Durabrand is a Wal mart brand i had mine for 2 years and i had to clean the lens 3 times with a cleaning kit.

Thanks

The dvd player will not read the disc


If it won't read any disc you put in, consider getting a new DVD player, the eye is most likely gone bad. If it is only one disc that you can't read i would suggest a Scotch DVD Cleaner kit. Cleans and Repairs discs, helps prevent skipping and mistracking, and repairs minor surface scratches improving disc audio and image quality.

My handheld dvd player isn't reading the disc-they just spin really fast


Spray an small drop of safe window cleaner onto a Q-tip. Clean the laser lens carefully and then use the other end of the Q-tip to dry it. Use compressed air on and around the laser lens (do not blow on it). Clean your DVD disc and try again. If it fails again, try using a CD, if it will play a CD and not a DVD your optical pickup assembly is defective. If the CD wont play at all, your optical sled or spindle motor and/or drive is defective.

Most cases if cleaning doesn't fix it, it's cheaper to replace the entire DVD player. All portable DVD players are junk, regardless of brand.

My Philips Portable DVD Player dont read avi files, how can I write my avi files to dvd discs to be readable.


Get a DVD burner program, like Nero, then follow the directions.

If you're running Windows, you can download Windows Live Movie Maker, if it's not already on your computer, and use it to convert the AVI's to DVD.

I have a coby vzon that says wrong disc but reads cds then when cleaned and blown loads up mp2 instead of dvd or says wrong disc still please help.


All DVD players use a dual laser pick up. One laser is for CD/VCD/MP3 and the other laser is only for DVD. If you have watched more DVD and less CD's you could be having a problem with the DVD laser. Must have become week and the system cannot read the disk. Change of the lens unit will solve your problem.
