Dvd player will not spin disk

My Coby TFDVD5000 will not spin a disc once it is inserted. It attempts to read the disc and the screen shows, but after a while it simply reads "wrong disc". I wonder if there is something wrong with the spinning element of the player. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Re: dvd player will not spin disk

Unfortunately, your DVD player is broken. Portable units like these often get bumped and jostled and the motor that spins the DVD quits (very small and fragile). Sorry, I wish there were a magic button.

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 had the same problem. It kept reading no disc. This might be helpful- Insert a disc when you press power apply a little bit of pressure down on the door. It worked for me.

Sounds like it's a problem with the optical sensor in the disk drive. Try and clean the little sensor with a cloth. If that doesn't work then you may have to send it back to Coby for either a warranty replacement or a repair.

DVD starts to load but does not play.

Not sure if anyone found this solution, worked for me.
1. Press SETUP
3. Change the code to 255 using the RIGHT arrow key

This will unlock the DVD player for all regions.
