Replacing the lens alone is only psiible if u know how to take it apart and put it back just the way it was. And it has fine ribbon cables too, U should be careful.
U cud get a lens from a used one but a new one is not possible since sony does not sell the optical pickup buy it's self in these models. I can get a new lens, but it comes with the lens, plus everything u get on that block, meaning the housing with the two motors.
Buying a new one is upto u since I donno where u are, the cost is around 100 USD for us in Maldives but it will be much cheaper in the rest of the world. If u can try googling for the replacmetnt lens block, sometimes this hels on how to get ur hands on an new one.

My Sony dvp NS710H isn't playing most standard, well conditioned DVDs.

Just clean its laser pickup lens, by inserting a lens cleaning disc in to, and play it at least two times. If it doesn't help you, the laser pickup unit should be replaced. The lens cleaning disc can be bought from most of the electronic sparepart selling shops at your town, and won't cost more.

My kid broke the blue optical lens in Sony DVP-FX930 Portable DVD Player. Can i replace the optical lens part from any other dvd drives or is it unique to sony. Please advice.

Portable DVD players are made up of the dvd mechnism, control motherboard and LCD panel. You can buy a defective Sony unit on ebay for parts and replace the dvd mechanism assembly.

Most defective portable dvd players are defective on the control motherboard, just read the defects disclosed on ebay items to decide which one to buy to fix yours.

Not loading


The reason your dvd player is not reading disc is simply because the lens is either weak or dirty.

Try to use a lens cleaner first to see what happens, if it does not read disc still, then you have to go for total replacement of the lens of the player.

Get a replacement lens, open up the player, try to locate the lens and replace it with the new one. Couple it back together and your player will work perfectly fine again.

Take care

DVD player keeps saying "can't read disc" We have tried cleaning w no luck. It was never a problem for 2 years. thanks

hello there,
the problem simply is that the lens is old and weak, cleaning it would not solve it but replacing it would be very ok.

to replace it, you look for a compatible replacement lens, then unscrew the dvd player, you would screw out the cd clipper that is above the lens, then you carefully disconnect the lens and replace it, try a dvd before screwing back to see it is working before you screw the case back on it.

Suddenly, DVD player cannot read discs


how long have you been using your DVD player?

I think the lens (laser) is weak and that's why it cannot read disc.

It is advice able for you to change the lens, so that you player would be able to load discs again.

All the best.

Unlocking Sony DVP-FX820 portable dvd


Sony has designed this player so it cannot have the region code changed, it is hard wired into the board as part of their copy protection scheme.

Most users have rated this player as 'junk' (sorry to be the bearer of bad news) and should be replaced.

Maybe you can sell it on Ebay.

My suggestion is that the less expensive the player the better off you will be in the long run as the cheaper brands and models use DVD drives meant for PCs and Macs. More expensive models have proprietary drives, such as Sony, and cannot be manipulated and are not very versatile in recording media and or playing copyright hacked copies of DVDs even if you own the original DVD but has been scratched.

The courts are still trying to figure out these protection measures as they are not fair use in terms of you the owner of a DVD and wanting to make your own backup copy for the kids to use.
