    hi..i bought a coby tf-dvd5000 last two years ago. after more than a year of seldom using it (at least once a month) it says there, "no disc" and "wrong disc" to the cd/dvd i played before. i let it check to an electronic shop and the technician suspected that it has a defective pick-up lens or motherboard. if i let them fix it, it would cost me a lot of money and it will take 2 or more months to fix it. also, it has no guarantee that it will work even if the parts have been made. do you know any service center here in the country with much cheaper price? wat could be the real prob of my player? pls help me, tnx! email me at

"Wrong Disc"

Manually slide the laser (in its bed) along its track toward the center of the player. Try this a few times, restart as needed. I just got this advice from another poster and am happy not to spring for repair costs now, or another cheaply made substitute.

Dratted Coby TF-DVD7100 Portable DVD player not working!

Its defective. Coby doesn't repair the units. The lense is off balance which is causing the laser to not read the dvd/cd.
