Hello my name is Israel and I will try to help you out. I have read your problem and what stood out was where you hooked up an ipod and no noise was heard. Do you hear noise when a cd plays? Do you hear noise when the radio plays? When else do you not hear noise?

I have a valor ida700w dvd cd car stereo in my truck and the radio works but the dvd cd player will not play. can you troubleshoot my problem please


FYI..... for any one with a Valor IDA-700w.
The dvd/cd drive assembly was poorly designed.
the clamp that secures disc as it rotates mounts
on one side with a plastic pivot,fine,but the other side
uses a longer metal arm that also has the clamp spring.
The spring exerts too much pressure on the arm and cracks
its plastic anchor.
I repaired mine with JB weld and it plays cds but will not
play dvds,just hunts and hunts or skips.
Oh well,radio plays great-by the way, an undocumented feature
of the unit is that it has a Zoran decoder chip for Dolby Digital
and DTS-too bad drive is inferior.
DTS cd discs play great when it works!

Hi

1) Make sure the discs you are using fit the correct format specified by your Unit . For example - if you are using DVD-R's that you have burned yourself and the unit does not support this format you will get this error.

2) Dirty laser lense causing the unit to have problems in reading the disk. Use a cleaning Disk like this one to see if the error resolves.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Hama-DVD-Laser-Cleaning-Disc/dp/B00005UPDF

If the error remains and you feel confident to do so you can open the unit and look for the glass laser lense - usually blue in color under the DVD clamp. Use a cotton swab and some isopropyl alcohol to gently wipe the lens in order to clean it.

Allow to dry naturally for a couple of minutes before re-assembling the cover on the unit.

3) Try a CD in the unit - if the unit reads CDs and not DVDs - this is an indicator of a faulty or misaligned drive mechaninsm within the unit itself. In this case the drive unit will require service attention and need to be replaced.

Obviously you should check that any disks you are using are clean and free from scratches.

Hope this helps. Please do rate my answer. Many Thanks.

I have the uv8 phase linear and burnt cds wont play only store b


I had the same problem - its because when you burn the disc, you don't use up all the recording time; and the read light on the player is so sensative that if there is any unused time, it will not accept the disc. So, make sure your recording time exceeds the disc space, and make sure the last song you burn is not your favorite because it will cut off midway through the song.

Disc would not of killed the entire unit, it may of clogged up the laser eye where it reads the disc. Use canned air or shop air and throughly blow out the unit. If problem persists contact Panasonic for replacement or repair.

My jensen pauses and turns itself on


i had the same problem with my jensen phas linear, i called the factory and they told me the lens is probably dirty and to try and clean it, well i did, actually cleaned it a couple times then put the movie in and it has worked fine all day today. make sure you get a good brand cleaning disc, not the 99 cent store kind, i bought mine for about $9 didn't even have to put any cleaning solution.

My D1709ES unit say's no disc?


Make sure you try a few different disc's and clean the disc's as well.
Disc cleaning kits are available at retailers that sell the players.
if you want to save a few bucks you can clean the disc's the way I do. it works as good or better than the cleaning devices.
Spray a small amount of windex on the disc and use a soft cloth like a bath towel or terry cloth, something soft that won't scratch the disc (paper towels can scratch disc's) to clean it with.

If that does not help you may need to clean the lens on the laser pick up. You can find a cleaning disc at many retailers that sell DVD and CD players. The disc has some very fine brushes on it and you put it in the player and run it for about 20 to 30 seconds.
If that does not help either, you will need to have it taken in to a repair center for service.
There are no other options for an end user to perform that can make the disc play.
The problem will require some good troubleshooting skills.
many times the laser pick up is bad when it won't read the disc.
There are a few other things that will cause it as well.
You can count on the repair to cost at least $75 if you are lucky and maybe as much as $150 or $200, It just depends on what the exact problem is. There is just no way to tell without troubleshooting it, and that can only be done with the proper equipment.
Audiovox parts are not very easy to find.
I don't mean to discourage you, but if the steps above do not work, you may need to buy a new one, unless it is under warranty. In that case you will probably get it exchanged.
I hope this was helpful for you, or at least lets you make an informed desicion.
let me know if you need any more help with it.
