Question about Audiovox D1812 Portable DVD Player
THE UNIT DOES NOT PLAY IT SIMPLY ALWAYS SAYS LOADING , AND THE MOTOR ALWAYS RUNS.
I have the same model, exhibiting the same problems. I bought it in 2005, and have used it only on trips. I bought mine at Sam's club and I emailed them and Audiovox and have gotten no response. It says little of Sam's Club or of AudioVox!

If it does it with all discs then the player is dying. If it is just the one disc I would say it is a bad disc. You can also see if there is dirt or grease or fingerprints on the laser pickup lens.

Probably the spindle motor is defective. Most of the times this is the major couse of htis problem.
The collectors of the motor became internally stuck with dirt.
You can check this by measuring the impedance of the motor by disconnecting the motor and measure the resistance of the motor with an Ohm-meter.(multimeter) . Itshould read somewhere in the 8-14 ohms range. when turning the motor the slightes bit, verry verry slowly (still measuring..) you should always read the same resistance. Only fluctuating a bit when turning but when stopping the turning the resistance should be the same. If not and you measure different value, then the collectors are polluted / filthy.
The answer to this is to either replace the motor, or (takes some more effort and precision) take the motor apart and clean the collectors carefully. THat is a difficult yob but I do this all the time when no new motors are available.
Hope this helps...
