I need a motor assembly for a philips dvd player

I've already taken apart the player to see what was happening and i know it's not spinning the disc, the lens does try to read the disc though. I've been trying to find the motor assembly for a while now and can't seem to find anywhere that sells it.

Re: I need a motor assembly for a philips dvd player

I used to repair dvd and cd players, the motor wont spin until the laser focuses on the disc, so you could have a faulty laser. also the mechanism sometimes comes as a complete assembly. which will cost more than anew unit

When loading a dvd it displays, "NO DISK". Is it

There are mainly three motors for most of the DVD players. One to spin the disc we insert in, other to load the laser pickup unit to-and-fro inside it to read the disc and an other one to load the tray mechanism 'in-out'. According to your description, the disc spins inside, and you can hear its spin. So motor which spins the disc has no trouble at all I should say. Then comes to the second motor that moves the laser assembly inside it. If it do not work, the laser pickup unit won't move and no reading will take place and 'No Disc' display will be the result. The last chance is with Laser Pickup Unit itself. Just get this unit repaired by any well experienced service technician or by the authorised service center, because, there are special tools to open this unit. As it is a compactable one, more care should be given to it while repairing. Suspect the second motor I described earlier, and the Laser Pickup Unit. OK.

AZ5737 philips DVD says NO DISC after inserting the disc.;please help

Clean the lens with a soft cotton cloth but be careful not to touch it with bare hands. Make sure the lens is not soiled with dust.
Note: if it says 'NO DISC" immediately after closing the tray, check capstan motor if spins smoothly. It is the one spinning the disc. Open the unit's casing to have a view of the disc when playing. If it doesn't spin, replace capstan motor.
Check also for abnormal heating of any IC on the module. Replace if there's any.

My dvd palyer shows NO DISC for any disc i want to play.

the laser is probably no good or the tiny motor that spins the disc is no good.there is a clamper assembly that goes in the hole in the disc.turn it and see if it spins freely.there is a bronze bushing on the top of the motor driving it ,and a small drop of light oil on the bearing will make it work again if it is gummed up..if the motor does not get the disc speed from 250 to 600rpm,fast,the laser does generate the proper info and the computer says error.yes the motors can be replaced,but the cost is as much as a new one

Won't accept DVD's

HI, this will happen when the lens assembly is damaged and it will need to be replaced. you can confirm by using a lens cleaner. If the system starts to read as normal after cleaning the lens with a cleaning disc, the problem will be solved but, if the problem still exist after the cleansing, you will need to replace the lens assembly. it has failed.

Most of the time, the load motor will fail and this is a integrate part of the Assembly in most cases.

Magnavox dp100mw8b will not read any discs i put in. be it brandnew discs, scratched discs, or burnt discs. It worked two days ago and now nothing. I've already cleaned it, now what? this is the second one...

The lens pickup is damaged and must be replaced. often the soldering joints on wiring to lens pickup are broken, or the lens is scratched. The unit must be taken apart and fixed by a technician.
