I have a Coby dvdtv 1390 that has problems playing dvds. Sometimes it will most times it won't. It will come up with a blank screen or wavy blank screen that says loading. sometimes the discs won't even...

how long has it been since you cleaned the DVD tray? you need to clean after about 10hrs. of play time on a DVD player, just buy a simple cleaning disc at the store, a Walmart, K-mart, Target,....etc....and run it through your player, just follow instructions on package.......I had this problem with my kids ps2, works fine now, the discs you rent are very dirty, and in turn leave your player dirty...hope this helps.....

HI,. this is a lens assembly fault. the lens is malfunctioning or, it may have stopped reading. this wrong disc code is just a universal warning that is concerning a fault if the main board doesn't receive any data(audio,video) when the disc is inserted.

Due to the integrated status of your unit, this will be a costly repair because, the entire assembly is combined together with the vcr section as well.

You will need to replace the entire assembly to fix this issue. the lens has burned out.

you can confirm my diagnosis by preforming a cleaning of the lens with a cleaning disc. if the unit continues to not read or play a CD after the cleaning, this will confirm my diagnosis.

Please rate and have a great day:)

DVD problem

Hello Everyone,
All you have are common problems anywhere. Make sure DVD discs are not pirated or not digitally copied. Most players like DVDs are quite sensitive. Most likely, laser lens are dirty or covered with dust. The best way to eliminate the problem is to clean your lens by using disc cleaner available in the market somehow. Drop a small amount of solution on the little brush adhered at the disc itself, load the disc into the tray, like a normal you play and push the botton PLAY , Some cleaner has an audio or video , so that you will be know the operation or further instructions.
Hope this will help solve the problem... Good luck.

Dvd's not playing

This might be a problem with the alignment of the actual laser in your device. You mentioned that you cleaned the player? Question, how? The reason I ask is because if you used alcohol and canned air you many have left a residue on the laser facet which would cause such a problem. I would suggest that you use an apporved fiber optic cleaning solution and attempt to clean the laser, (it is best to let a pro do this). Then check the laser alignment and power with a laser power meter.

is the dvd a store bought disc or a burnt dvd? If the disc is a store bought disc I unfortunately can't help you. But if the dvd you are trying to play is burned from dvd burner you are most likely using the wrong type of burnable dvd. There are two types of dvd's you can burn, DVD-R and DVD+R. You need to make sure which one you dvd player can play, some play one or the other, some play both. I have also heard of some older ones that can't play any type of burned disc. Hope that helps Peter
