Re: flashing red light Panasonic portable DVD-LA95
Check the microswith near the hinge .
its generally located on near the back right corner of the player , on the control surface. it looks like a very small white plastic button or pip. sometimes these stick down and look like part of the player casing, when they actually are a switch. it needs to be raised , so when the lid is closed it pushes the pip down and turns the screen off. Try prising it gently free with a pin or needle.
this happened tome and i was on the verge of binning it. when i looked at the manual and it says
power light flashing slowly means screen turned off.
if the light is flashing very quickly then im afraid its knackerred and just not worth repairing.
if this is helpful to you then just drop me a line at

you need to check that it supports pal output, if its a european unit
(check the manual and player bottom for the ce mark) then it will play pal discs and will need reverting to the multiregion upgrade ( a disc and a few button presses about £20 online)) if its an american unit then it wont play pal discs even if you do manage to multiregion it.
any flashing red powerlight ?? (assuming theres any charge left)
if the powerlight flashes quickly then the units kaput ( bin it)
slow flashing means the microswitch may be stuck (the one that turns off the screen when you close the lid.
you may have to be sneaky at a dealer and ask to plug in to a new mains unit ( most new panasonics still use the same power supply voltage and ampage. if it works then run away quickly and go buy a universal power supply, if it doesnt , well your in the right place tobuy a new one ??
1 - Run up speed is not sufficient due to motor wear.
2 - The laser head sits within a 'plastic' runner, which wear down slowly, causing the laser to be misaligned - therefore not reading adequately.
Depending how adventurous you are feeling - you could dismantle the unit - and 'space off' the laser unit (Single piece of paper) this will lift up the laser.
Or you may be able to adjust the calibration power of the laser using a variable pot (unlikely to be available as these are generally hard coded nowadays - and not physical pots)
This could be the laser going or a dirty track. I suggest that you first clean the laser gently. If this doesn't work you must take the player apart and clean the track that the laser moves on along with everything around it (keeping in mind that the laser is fragile).
