Question about Televison & Video

Open Question

I have a Magnavox MPD1810A portable DVD player and it does not work. Sometimes when a DVD is inserted it reads: Loading but that is all it does. I cannot watch anything on it but the laser is in tact and the DVD spins inside (sometimes).

Some suggestions assuming you know you're using good discs, and have this problem with more then 1 disc. In anything that requires you to open the player and play around in it, I also assume you're not too akward with electronics, and out of warranty: spindle motor problems - you could either fix that by changing the motor, or occasionaly by dropping a little bit of 3 in 1 oil on the shaft. Just dont start it as a hobby if you can still go complain at the store... Good luck

The general amateur fix, and one with surprisingly high success rates is to brush dust accumulated on the laser lens. This is assuming you get this with all disks, otherwise better not risk opening it. Plug it out, open the screws, open it up, if necessary remove another board covering the lens, and gently brush the dust off. Assemble back and hopefully you're solved. Anything else is for the lab(motor, lens assembly, focusing problems etc) Good luck

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

The high voltage is failing. The LSB board is about $200 from partstore.com.

Dvd not reading portable magnavox


Check and replace the optical pick up unit. It might be faulty. Clean it by inserting a lens cleaner disc into the device, and play it at least 2 times. If this do not help you, the fault is said above.

My Tru Tech portable dvd player is only a year old and just quit working. When you insert a dvd, it comes up with it's typical, ''loading''. Instead of going to the movie it just satays on the loading...


It's a wonder that DVDs (or even CDs) are read at all; the positioning mechanisms reading them have to deal with millionths of an inch precision and anything can upset the alignment of them.
You might try cleaning the path of the laser with a simple 'cleaning disk' you can buy at electronics outlets. They are not expensive (<$10 US) and can sometimes restore operation by removing dust from the light path. If this doesn't help, I'm afraid you have just another Chinese dumpster item since the repair costs will likely exceed the replacement cost.

Philips PET710 DVD player shows 'no disc' when disc inserted


I have the same problem with my portable dvd player and found that cleaning the lens of the player using a non-alcolhol wet nap for cleaning eye glasses worked well. I also found the rail that the optics runs along while playing needed a very small amount of silicone greese applied using a Q-tip. You may find that the optic unit may be "stuck" somewhat but can be resolved by gently moving the optic along its guide using a finger.

This changed my unit from not working at all, to working intermittantly sometimes having to vary the player on and off to recongnise the disc. Hope this works

Cannot read disc


Had the same type of problem; I called Magnavox on this one. These DVD players aren't "guaranteed" to be able to read discs that were "burned"/homemade. They're only "guaranteed" to play commerically produced DVDs. If you're trying to play something that you made it probably isn't going to work.

Magnavox portable dvd player


i've had two magnavoxes, one that i just got about 2 months ago and they're both doing that. I got a lens cleaner CD from walmart, it's like $15, but that didn't completely fix the problem. It helped for a little while, but then the player completely broke and won't even load the cleaner. I'm not going to buy magnavox things anymore.

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.
