Check and see if there is dust or dirt or something on the lens. Dirt, grease and fingerprints will cause a DVD player to have read errors.
If it a new player, or under warranty, get it replaced. It sounds like it is failing.

Hope that helped.

Coby DVD shows Invalid Disc HELP PLEASE


Did you make the disk if you made the disk your computer has to give it a digital signature so the DVD player can read it if you're using a regular DVD then I would very carefully using rubbing alcohol and Q tip clean the actual laser I would be very careful doing this if too much rubbing alcohol is on the Q tip it will ruin the laser you can also try resetting the DVD player by taking out the battery and unplugging it from any power source and leave it that way for at least 20 seconds to a minute if that doesn't work you might have something else wrong

I put the disc in the player ithen tries to play then it says disc not valid .


Same here!!! We've only used it maybe 8 or 9 times. And it's been worthless for the past month because of it. It reads everything "no valid disk" and nothing will work. And I tried e-mailing customer support several times, with no luck.

any commercial films are written to what's known as dual-layer DVD discs, which are like two DVDs sandwiched together. Movie studios try to pack as much cool stuff as they can onto a DVD, so by the time you add movie trailers, documentaries, and other special features, the amount of space necessary far exceeds the 4.7GB capacity of a regular DVD disc. Using a dual-layer disc expands the capacity to 9.4GB, which is enough to hold the movie and many extras, depending on how long the film is. What you seem to be experiencing is a problem related to the DVD player changing layers (when it must adjust the focus of the laser to read the second layer of the disc), which is usually indicated by a brief pause during playback. In the early days of DVD, many players had difficulty during the layer change, which could cause the DVD player to lock up during playback. In other cases, a badly formatted or damaged disc could be the culprit, so you should check the condition of the DVDs that are giving you problems. Since you mentioned that sometimes they work, your problem could stem from a scratch or a fingerprint. But, if the condition of the DVD is flawless, you may have to consider getting your DVD player repaired, replaced, or exchanged (since you mentioned it was new). Since it is a portable DVD player, you may want to try running the DVD player when it is plugged into an AC receptacle. This will at least rule out any relationship to the battery, though a remote possibility. But, portable devices do strange things when its battery is low.
