Unit needs to be returned for service under warranty. If not under warranty. You Must open the unit by removing all the screws on the bottom of the unit and use a small plastic pry bar to open the case around the space where the volume control is.slide the pry bar all around the case to open it.Becareful not to lose any of the switch cover that may fall off as you open the case. You must replace these covers exactly to operate the unit once reassembled. Check all rubber bumpers for hidden screws before trying to open the case. you must unlock the plastic locking mechanism all around the case. Then take apart the laser and motor assembly and disconnect all the wire straps and ribbon cables. Clean all these connectors with a contact cleaner by apply it to a cotton swab and cleaning. Try cleaning the laser with a cotton swab and Isopropyl alcohol. Put small amount of alcohol on swab and gently clean laser lens, Check transport for dirt and try cleaning the travel rails of the laser to remove dirt and grease and reapply a small amount of lithium grease to a swab . Lube the rails and ratching mechanism. Do all this with the utmost case, do not use to much grease or you will cause more problems..Use light gloves. do all the work with the cotton swabs. Check disc spindle and see if it is loose, if it is use a drop of super glue to to tighten the grip of the spindle to the motor shaft.Reassemble unit and put together in case put all screws back in unit and test unit on a level non vibrating surface. Use a clear disc from CD cases to check and see if laser is turning on and attempting to track normally. If this does not work attempt to polish laser head with soft foam material and non abrasive high gloss mirror or glass polish very carefully try to make the laser clear and shiney. Do not work to fast and do not push to hard on the laser or you will ruin the alignment.Slowly try to clear the lens of all discoloration.If all this fails try to buy a new laser mechanism from e-bay and replace your old one. Hope this helps you with your problem.

Insignia Portable DVD Player does not play DVDs - says no Disc?

SOURCE: Plays CD but not DVD, says no disc

HI.This will occur when the optical assembly becomes unstable. this ((Whole One Piece)), assembly incorporates the spin/load motor, optics housing /arm, tracking device and tracking rail. This is connected to the loading dock assembly. This 'NO Disc' or CD NOT PLAYABLE, code is the result of a failed or burned out lens. It is possible that you have a dirty lens cap. you can try using a cleaning disk in this case to confirm actual lens failure. if the cleaning doesn't restore normal reading capabilities, this will confirm my diagnosis.

You will need to have the optical assembly replaced in this case. once replaced, your unit will be able to read and track once more.

Try using a lens cleaner. Also, reset the unit to factory defaults. Ensure that the disk you are attempting to play is clean and scratch-free. If the problem persists, you may pursue service options through the place of purchase.

Dvd does not play


The problem is the laser. CDs and DVDs use a different frequency (color) of light. One can fail or weaken and the other still be strong. Check with Insignia for repair.

It sounds like the player needs to be cleaned. Just go to your local electronics store and get DVD player cleaning disk. They are only like $10 and do the trick. Whatever you do, DONT blow into the player as it will only make it worse.
