If your unit is still making noise like it is trying to eject, then give it a little help by using a tweezer to pull the disc out after you pressed eject. Then clean the eject's mechanism rollers by using a couple of Q-tips and alcohol. Stick the slightly wet Q-tip into the center of the disc player slot until you reach the rollers after that slide it against the rollers from side to side, when you do that the sliding switches will trigger the eject mechanism and the rollers will start to roll. After afew times change the Q-tip and repeat. Allow 10-15 minutes for it to dry out completly. It should work after that. But if your unit is making clicking sounds or no sound at all right now and it display mechanical error message, then you have deep mechanical problems. There are services on Ebay for about $100, contact Rick for service. He own SAME DAY AUDIO SERVICES, he is very reliable. You can call me too:801-414-4566. Good luck.

Not loading dvd's


Either a problem in the mechanism where it is not loading all the way or a dirty or bad optical pickup in the unit that reads the disc.

Vhs tape is stuck and message reads "tape


Unplug the TV/VCR/DVD Combo from the main power for a couple of minutes, the unit may eject the tape at the power ON.
You can also try openening the unit, reset the loading posts and eject the tape by manually turning gears, motors etc..You have to know what you're doing otherwise, you will do more damage or get injured and don't forget HIGH VOLTAGE CAN KILL.

Hello
There are two fault possibilities for this problem. Both are not user reapairable. The first one is of 'sled' motor. Sled motor is one that spins the DVD disc inside the DVD mechanism. If it fails to rotate the disc, the laser reading assembly cant get any signal from the inserted disc and will show "Reading" display on the front panel for a long time, and finally stops. The second one is of Laser Pickup Unit Assembly itself. If it has got damaged, there will be no laser beam to scan the DVD inserted, and the same thing as described above will occur. In both cases the final displauy will be "Open". To replace both items, you have to take its mechanism fully outside and to disassemble it. It is really a skilled work. It is best for you to get it repaired by any experienced service technician you know very well, or get it repaired by any authorised service centers. OK.

Unit fell on the floor and now gets stuck while "Reading Disk .." after hitting play. Can hear the mechanism start and stop continually but never gets past the reading disk stage. Perhaps...


1. Open unit as if you were loading a disc.
2. Locate laser lens and sliding lens assy.
3. Take a non-conductive material (wood, plastic) and try moving the laser assy. along the track.
NOTE: you may have to be a bit heavy-handed to make the laser assy. move.
4. Move it in one direction but only far enough to free the jammed laser mechanism
5. Reinstall a DVD and press "play"

Kef dvd is stuck in tray. It is trying to read it and now wont allows us to eject, change for sat sound NOTHING!! Help!


First you do is to unplug the cord of your DVD unit for 5 hours in order to drain the stored current,the purpose is to reset the unit. After the 5 hours plug the DVD see to it if it open If not,just try to press down on the stop button and pressing eject button at same time and it will unlock the tray .Then the other option is to open the cover of the DVD unit and unplug the unit again to avoid electricshock . When open already look for the disc platter moved it outward while driving the gear or simply push out. The drawer or door of the DVD player and you will see a small circular disc which is often called turntable or disc platter.When the disc platter is out push it back and push it out you do this three times so the slider mechanism align it properly.If you do already what i said then plug it again and if works already closed the cover. The slider mechanism, depending on the age of the unit and the manufacturer, consists of the small chrome rail, a drive motor, a small gear assembly, and (in some units) a small belt that drives the slider unit via the motor. This small belt causes all sorts of problems. If the belt is broken or slipping, it can cause skipping, dropouts, or simply no start up at all. Also, if the belt breaks in the middle of the disc, the drive mechanism gets hair or dirt wrapped up into the gears, or the pick-up assembly doesn?t return to the start position (called home), the unit will (99% of the time) refuse to release the disc, causing it to become stuck inside the unit. There?s a little micro or leaf type switch located at home position that sometimes gets dirty or breaks and, causing this problem also. Hope it may help you; Regards; VOTIT DONT FORGET TO RATE;

Neither CDs nor DVDs will insert into the player to be read


It sounds like there is aother disc stuck in the CD player. while unplugged from electrical source, open up the cover and see if there is anything in it's way. You might think there is nothing inside, but perhaps someone was there before you!

The Best!

Error code on Panasonic LS50 portable DVD player


I purchased my LS50 over 16 months ago. I had a H03 error before and it went away after sitting on the shelf for three days. It worked ok for another couple of months and then stopped again. The screen says reading but the motor is not spinning. i pointed out that the laser lens is in the wrong place. When at resting location, the lens should be parked near to the spindle in the middle. The mechanism to move the lens backward and forward sometime get stuck at the end of its travel - furthest away from the spindle. If your player is out of warranty, then you maybe able to try this. Open up the bottom cover by taking out the screws - 10 or so. This will reveal the lens and motor module. Flip over the model and you should see the gear and shaft for the lens. Move the gear so that the lens move towards the centre. Click the covers back into place , reconnect the battery and try. If it works, put all the screws back. Mine was fixed this way but this is not a gaurantee that this will work on yours. Good luck.

Forgot to mention. You can also clean the gear shaft in case there are small particules stuck to the grease and affect the movement. After cleaning, apply a tiny bit of grease just to lubricate the moving shaft. Not too much. I am glad that the instructions help.
