Question about Sharp DV-NC55U DVD Player/VCR

1 Answer

DVD player skips

When playing a DVD, the DVD pauses at odd intervals for about 3 seconds then continues to play. Sometimes it is every 10 seconds, which can be annoying when trying to watch a movie. I used a DVD head cleaning disk, twice, but it did not solve the problem. The DVD works in my other player, so I know there is a problem with the DVD player. It is a Samsung combo DVD VCR player.

I guess it depends on how old your player is,but i would say it's your player,that's the bad thing about having multiplayer units,when one go's bad it kind of screws you up.but since dvd players are so inexpensive nowadays just replace it.

This player is a big,huge hunk of ****.problems since i got it in 2001:...


The most common mechanical problems that can prevent a dvd player from playing or reading the discs are the following:

1. The spindle motor not functioning properly (this is by far the most common, if the spindle motor is not spinning the discs then the optical lens can not read them). For the most part it is an cheap part to replace averaging around 25-35 dollars if you can replace it yourself. If you do not know how and have to take it to a repair shop expect to pay 50-75 dollars in labor depending on the area you live in. The best thing is to do some comparison shopping and call the different repair shops and get estimates. The key is to listen closely when you insert the disk into the player, you should be able to hear it spin up. If you hear nothing then that is most likely the problem.

2. The tray could be out of alignment. This is another easy and cheap fix if you have the proper tools. This could happen if you drop or pull/push to hard on the tray (which you should not really do anyway, but always use the open and close button). This is an example picture of the drive assembly with the tray open.

3. The small gears are plastic and often break, this will cause the players other parts to not move and function properly. They are difficult to reach, but inexpensive to replace. It is always recommended that you always order any part from the manufacturer of the device. A visual inspection is usually required to determine if the small teeth have been broken, which requires for the most part taking out the carriage assembly.

4. The small belt drives either break or come off. Again, this will cause the other mechanical parts not to function. They are difficult to put back on as well, so you may need an extra pair of hands if you have not done this before. On average you will usually have 2-3 of them inside your player.

5. The Optical reader has malfunctioned. This is the most expensive thing to replace, so you might consider purchasing another player depending on how much you want to spend and the original cost of the device, unless you can find a great deal on the part you need. You can check to see if the laser is firing with a visual inspection (DO NOT LOOK DIRECTLY INTO THE LASER) put in a disc with the case off and you should see the glow of the laser hitting the disc. You can also see the spindle/spindle motor.

Picture of the optical reading assembly dismantled:

6. The tray also has a drive motor which can fail and cause the cd tray not to open and it also has a track that it rides on (located in the drive assembly). Check these two components if you are having problems with your tray not opening and closing properly or stops working completely. Sometimes, the tray will open and then immediately close on it's own. This is usually caused by the track being dirty or some type of debris is lodged in the track. Cleaning the inside of the player with a can of compressed air will help remove dust and dirt. Blowing out the inside of the device once a month is a good preventative maintenance measure.

CAUTION: When working with any electrical device, you should always ensure safety first. Make sure that the device is turned off and unplugged from any power source. This does not completely prevent electrical shocks because Capacitors will hold an electrical charge for some time even if the device is turned off and unplugged.
The following are example pictures of what Capacitors look like:

How do i get rid of message code 3 ??????


Actucally, there are a few ways to bypass Cinavia, but no program can remove Cinavia. If your video is a homemade movie or other personal recording, to play your recording without muting you may either:
· Pause the video, wait 30 seconds for the audio to be un-muted, then skip over those portions where the professionally produced material is used and continue playing the rest of the video, or
· Pause the video, wait 30 seconds for the audio to be un-muted, then play video from a different optical disc for at least 10 minutes before continuing playback of this video.

CD player skipping and pausing at start up


CD player lens run on a ratchet teeth system that moves up and down. When you hear it clicking, it could be that the mechanism has either fouled, or has teeth missing, or is damaged. It might be possible to correct the problem, sometimes with superglue. But it needs looking at to determine the damage.

Hi my cd player in my new beetle . when i play a cd it pauses between tracks instead of playing continuously as the cd was designed to do


It is most likely an anti-skip feature built into the radio. Many radios have this option and they pause for a moment and build up a bit of the song into the internal memory(up to 60 seconds), and this internal memory helps keep your CD from skipping.

Hello Mr. Varghese,

Your LG dvd player's lens might need cleaning. It is having a hard time reading those cds that is why it sometimes skips or just stops in the middle of playing them. Does this happen also to new cd's? Sometimes cleaning those cds helps the lens reading them.

If you have a disk cleaner, you can run that for 30 seconds on your player. It that does not help, then you might need to open your DVD player's casing and clean the lens manually by opening your player, get a soft cotton earbud and damp in an alcohol and gently wipe your dvd's lens. Then try to return back everything and test playing cd.

DVD burns properly but keeps pausing and skipping


Decrease the recording speed. Record at, for example, 8x speed. 4x might be even better. This will solve you problem.
