Step1Make sure the laser pickup lens is actually the problem. There are a wide variety of reasons that a DVD player might not read a disc efficiently. The disc could be scratched or dirty, for example. Test the DVD player with a disc that you know works before trying to clean the lens. Step2Purchase or borrow a lens cleaner disc and try it first. You can find these things really cheap at any large department store. They usually get the job done well. However, you may need to clean the lens manually if the store-bought cleaner fails. Step3Remove the outer casing of the DVD player. Remove the screws that mount the top casing onto the bottom of the DVD player and slide the top casing off. This will expose the DVD deck, which houses the laser pickup lens. Step4Find the lens. The lens will be glass and under the DVD clamp. The lens will probably have a blue tint to it. If you are having trouble finding the lens, you could shine a light on the components and watch for the reflection. Step5Use a cotton swab and some isopropyl alcohol to gently wipe the lens. Just a quick scrub will do. Dry the laser pickup lens with the other end of the swab. Step6Give the lens a few seconds to dry and replace the covering of the DVD player. Test the efficiency of the player. If necessary, repeat the processalso click this link for more help http://www.ehow.com/Search.aspx?s=How+do+I+clean+the+lens+of+a++dvd+player%3F&Options=0

SE PUEDE USAR UN CONTROL REMOTO COBY 514 EN UN DVD COBY 224


Quisas. Only if the control frequencies for both units are identical. Since you are dealing with same manufacturer you have a better chance of it working than if you were using two units from different manufacturers.

Hello
Either your Coby's Laser Pickup Unit assembly or its srtip wire connected in between laser pickum unit to the main board is faulty. Try replace the strip wire first. If it helps you it is OK. If not, replace the laser pickup unit with same type and number. OK.

My dvd player says "wrong disc" for all dvds


Sounds like the DVD/Blue ray laser has gotten dust on it.

I would go to your local electronics store and purchase a cleaning disk. They are normally under $10. Insert it and run it though the player.

This sound no more serious than a dirty read laser.

The lasers are sometimes weak on the Coby DVD players. They can easily be scratched or become dirty. You can try to get a DVD lens cleaner or try and wipe it off with a very soft cloth. Do not use toilet paper or paper towels because they can leave particles on the lens and even scratch it worse than it is. If that does not work the lens can be completely scratched or the DVD can be scratched and can not be read.
