Portable DVD player

My portable DVD player keeps freezing up. I have used a DVD lens cleaner several times and it still does it. I put a music CD in it and it plays all the way through just fine. Any ideas or suggestions?

Its sounds like cpu/memory problem. the laptop can't play dvd while doing other things. Try to play dvd while all other application are close, if it doesn't freeze its a cpu/memory problem (inwhich case why should try to buy more memory)

My portable dvd player will not read any dvds


  • I would give it a good cleaning with a disk player cleaning. Those disks have little bristles on them that "sweep" the lens and clean it real well. Remember that if the lens is so dirty that it won't play any DVD you may need to run that cleaner disk a few times to get the lens back to normal working condition.
  • A lens cleaner disk should be ran one time a week to avoid problems with playing disks be it CD or DVD or Computer.
  • Sometimes players go bad so keep in mind this could be the problem as well but I have had the DVD player in my garage get so dirty I had to clean it a few times to get it to work normal.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.
Regards, Tony

Dvd stops playing and freezes less than 6 months old


Try to use lens cleaner. If lens cleaner doesnt solve the problem. Check your warranty. Or inquire to the store where you bought it.

Says no disk


With the power turned off, open the DVD Player, and then open the top where you load the DVD into the player. Locate the laser lens and notice that the laser is attached to a transport assembly that moves the laser diagonally outward in a slot. 1. Slide this assembly outward to the end of its track. 2. Slide the assembly back inward to the closest inward position. 3. Repeat the process of sliding the assembly outward and then back inward.4. Put in a music CD and let it play all the way through. This helps to calibrate the laser head assembly movement. When the music CD is finished playing. 5. Put in a DVD, and you should have a working unit again This is a factory solution from Mintek that was given to a customer who ask for help with the forever loading disc problems. This solution may work on other models of portable DVD players. Most portable DVD players use this type of transport mechanism. Try this solution it might work for you. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

I have a portable dvd player model number mdp1030 the unit keeps saying no disk I have tried numerous disks same results.


then i think the lens is not able to read the disk.

and so i would suggest you to buy a disk cleaner CD and run it in your DVD player and then use your regular disks.

if this is not working then it is some internal fault in your DVD players lens.

The part that reads the DVDs is defective. I would suggest to try cleaning it using a lens cleaner, hopefully that works.
If the cleaning does not work, it might just be cheaper to buy a new one instead of repairing this one.

DVD player isn't loading and playing properly


Since it will play eventualy, I'd suspect a dirty lens. Open up the unit and carefully clean the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Also, try a music CD. If the CD works flawlessly but DVDs still fail occasssionally, the optics are starting to fail and will need to be replaced.

INSIGNIA NS-PDVD10 Problem


I have a NS-PDVD8 . I purchased DEC 2006. I used it in April 2007 and then again in Jan.2008. When I went TO use March -2008 I received message NO DISCwhen attempting to play DVD.i messed with for an hour by rebooting and and dusting with compressed air.No help

next day I tried a CD and after very long loading time played music.
after I let it run for an hour I attempted DVD but same response.NO DISC

I cleaned the optical lens with a damp soft cloth and dried with soft cloth ( I do not recommend using a cloth but I was fed up and needed the player for flight next day) I believe you can purchase a cleaner kit.

I also ran the lens back and forth 5 or 6 times to make sure it could move fully along track.I heard clicking and wondered if this was ever going to run again.

I tried a CD first and the Cd loaded almost immediately and played

Next I tried a DVD and loaded successfully and played entire movie.

I turnred on and off about 10 times and reloaded movie without any problem.

Screen displays "Error data" when trying to play a DVD


My understanding is that the DVD player uses a different lens to the CD player. So the DVD lens might need cleaning. A CD lens cleaner would not correct the DVD side.
