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?

Re: portable DVD player

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

I have had my Panasonic DVD-F87 Multi-disc DVD Player for over three years and within the last 4 months, it stopped playing DVD's. It plays CDS and CDRs' but it will not play a DVD at all (used to play...

Hello jwbabyj hi, 3 years of good listening to music on your player is rather good for its life, no device doesn't last forever, this failure is due to use, dust, temperature, shock, fluctuating power source and other external devices, which will make you player eventually give up. My solutions suggest the following:
  1. Clean your player lens, there are after market lens cleaners, buy one. and use it to clean the player lens.
  2. You may need to remove the top cover to have access to the lens for manual cleaning if the lens cleaner will not work out. Get one clean ear bud, and dampen one side with warm water, rub this in circular motion to the lens, 3 to 5 revolutions will do, use the other dry side to dry off the lens. replace the cover and test. do this several times until the player works.
  3. If still, this does not work, remove the cover and see if the lens glows visible light, to do this eject the tray, do not place any CD, then close, look at the lens and see if it emits visible light. No light bad lens. needs lens replacement. bring it for service.
  4. Check for worn out belts, does your player spindle spins? no spinning spindle bad player. needs spindle replacement.
  5. If 3 and 4 are likely, better buy a new one.

When you put a dvd in it it says no disc I used all dvds it tells me the same thing the player is about 2 years old

try to use cd cleaner first. usually len has a dirt thats why you player was unable to read year disc. if same thing happened after you cleaned the lens. then it might be a lens problem

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.

Portable dvd player keeps saying bad disc

try cleaning the lens with a lens cleaner cd, if this doesn't work the lens itself is scratched or faulty and you will need to buy another dvd player

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.

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.
