This thing used to work, now when I put a disk in, it will load for 30 seconds or so, then go to a black screen with the words Line 1 on it... that's all it does.. thank you so much for your help!! /Neo
I spent the day taking apart this player and found the drive gear on the motor that moves the laser was cracked. it allows the laser to move until it hits the part of the gear that is split. The reader will then hang up and the screen goes black. I got on line to find a replacement gear and found this site so I thought I'd share what I had found. Now I'm looking for a nylon 12 tooth gear.

ok if you already have it fixed great but if not here is a solution if the other ones that were told didnt work... My sister had the same dvd player it wouldnt load any of the dvds. so she gave it to me. If you dont want to risk what im going to tell you than well u can pay 200 dollars or somthing to get it fixed. Take the top part of the dvd player off. you then take the little disk cover that holds the disk on the player off. if you can push the laser as close as you can to the thing that spins the disk. now if that doesnt work clean the lens by taking prokide or rubbing alchol with a q tip and just rub the lens lightly. it should clean that off. put everything back together and then try it. if it still doesnt work the mother board in it could be fried. if that is the case than well u can get it fixed for no telling how much. if you dont wont to pay anything than throw it away. Hope this helps!
1. Remove disc from tray. 2. Switch off player and unplug power cord. 3. Wait 30 seconds, then reconnect power cord. 4. Turn on player with remote. Wait for player to finish loading and display 'no disc'. 5. Press enter on remote. (There will be no on-screen response.) 6. Press 8, 4, 2, 6, 9 on the remote. (There will be no on-screen response.) 7. Press enter on the remote. Player will automatically shut off. 8. Turn player on. 9. Turn off. 10. Turn player on then off again. 11. Player is now region-free.
did you follow the steps carefully. the number "9" on this hack is region free. you could go back and try the hack again,following the steps,to see if it works.
When I try to play a DVD, operation seems normal, the unit makes a slight noise like the disk is rotating and "Loading" is displayed. Then after about 30 seconds the message "No Disk" is displayed. Then just the Polaroid screen is displayed. I have lost the remote control but surely the unit will play using the front panel buttons. One thing, only the remote is named as having a Setup Button in the manual but the unit has no such button.
I wonder if you are trying to play burned dvds, if so that could be a major issue alot of players won't play burned disks, others will only play certain ones. another thing I have had problems with, though i don't know a fix. My samsung sometimes has a similar issue where it flat out will not play certain company dvds.
Chances are, your DVD player uses one laser to read CDs, and a different laser to read DVDs (since Cds and DVDs are read at different wavelenghts of light). If the DVDs you're trying to watch work properly in other DVD players, it probably means that the DVD laser is dirty, damaged, or burned out. Though you can try cleaning the laser (use Google for suggestions on how to do this, or check the Audiovox website), you will most likely have to get the DVD player repaired, or buy a replacement.
Many of the newer CD/DVD players sold today use a single combination laser, which reads both CDs and DVDs, which means that when the laser fails, it will not work at all. Wish I had better news for you, but I guess that the only consolation you have is that your Audivox player still works with CDs...
