Question about Koss KS2503 System

1 Answer

DVD Player turns on spins says reading but there is no picture or sound.

Dvd Player turns on spins says its reading disc 1. Then thats it, no picture or sound comes out. It just sits there for hours on end doing nothing, but say reading. If I change to AV or tuner then flip it back to dvd player. It just says stop. So anybody else have any notion to what I should do. Mr. Thom

I had same problem and once left the player on for 3 weeks (left for vacation) and it still never worked. Finally had to dissassemble body of player to get dvd out. There appears to be no solution to this problem. I have called it quits and this cheap piece of junk is now in the trash. Koss will never be on my list of best buys.

I've had this DVD player for a while and haven't had many problems until now. Any kind of DVD I put in the player, it says it's loading for a while, and then comes up with the message "Wrong Disc", for...


Hello kpohl385,
Sorry to hear you are having some problems with your player, but hopefully I can help you solve the problem. The following are some common reasons why dvd players fail to read discs or give you error messages.

1. The discs are scratched or dirty. If you hold them up to the light and tilt them, you will be able to see smudges, finger prints, scratches, chips, etc. Since your player is not reading any disc (even new ones) this does not sound like the problem, but still needs to be considered.
2. The optical lens that reads the discs is dirty and needs to be cleaned. According to the description you have given of the problem, this sounds like the most likely source of the problem you are having.
Here is a example picture of what the optical lens looks like:

3. The spindle motor could malfunction which will cause the disc to not spin at all or spin erratically. If a disc will not spin properly the laser inside will not read the information on the disc.
4. The optical assembly has malfunctioned and the laser that reads the information is not working.

You can also read my tips and tricks section on the most common reasons why dvd players fail, which will provide you with more in depth descriptions, pictures, and information.

The easiest way to clean the optical lens of your player is by purchasing a dvd cleaning kit. You can purchase this kit at most stores that sell electronics such as Wal-mart, Best Buy, Circuit City, etc. They are not expensive. You can also clean the optical lens manually and you will find information on how to do this here. I would also recommend you purchase a disc cleaning kit as well. This will help keep your dvd/cd discs in good working order and help remove dirt and scratches and they are also not expensive (this is totally optional) and can be purchased at the same type of stores I mentioned above. You can also clean your discs manually, but it will not really help with scratches. You can find step by step instructions here.

Here is a example picture of what a dvd cleaning kit looks like:

All dvd/cd devices eventually fail over time, but by far the most common problem is just a dirty optical lens or dirty or scratched disc.
Sorry for all the links, but if I posted all the pictures and instruction on here, it would look like a novel :-).

I sincerely hope that this solves the problem you are having. Please let me know if you need any further assistance and I will be more than happy to try and help you to the best of my abilities. I wish you all the best.

If you would not mind, please rate my help. I would greatly appreciate it. Thank You

DVD spinning slow and get a 'No Disc' message


Hello,
The problem sounds like the spindle motor is about to go out completely. If a disc does not spin or does not spin at it's proper speed the optical lens reading laser can not read the disc and you get a "no disc", or "disc not recognized" error message. On average a dvd will spin 3 times faster than a regular cd will. The following pictures will show you what these components look like.

Check around your local area to find what a service technician will charge to replace the part. On average it will usually cost between $60-90 dollars most of which is labor.

I hope this gives you some idea of what the problem is and how to solve it.

If you would not mind, please rate my help. I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you

DVD stopped playing all DVDs


Reset you player by doing the following:
With the player on, hooked properly to your television, and on the correct station:
Open the tray
Close the tray (with no DVD inserted)
Hold the stop button down for a full 5 seconds
The CyberHome screen should appear. You should be able to play your dvd's now.

Koss KD365 DVD - Says No Disc


Make sure the disc is spinning. This might sound crazy but try turning the whole player upside down and see if it plays.

After trying to read a disc it says cannot read


I had the exact same problem - I bought this DVD player TODAY at a garage sale for 5 bucks, they said it wouldn't read the disc, so I looked it up and found this thread. I did what that other person did, in that I had a DVD loaded into the player, then I took the top off. The DVD worked perfectly! I actually didn't even have to touch anything inside. I then put the top back on, making sure not to tighten the screws too hard. I think what it was is that this is a very slim unit, and there really isn't much room for the motor to spin the DVD, especially if there is even a 1 millimeter bend in the casing - it prevents the DVD from spinning around. I would reccomend never putting anything on top of this DVD player.
