Re: durabrand 8.5 dvd player

Is it the correct type of disc? Whilst these devices will play almost all 'commercial' disks In many cases 'burned disks' Cumputer Data disks and audio disks are a No No The manual/packaging will tell you which. You could try a Lazer cleaner disk. Failing that it looks as if the device is failing and needs replacing - I doubt if there is a repair option.

We have a Durabrand portable DVD player, the issue we have is once we place the dvd in, the screen reads loading, then reads no disc. We have tried several discs. Any free troubleshooting suggestions?


use a cd/dvd lens cleaner kit or if that does not work, you will need toopen lid, access the lens pickup, and clean the lens directly, using isopropyl alcohol with cotton sticks.
anyway if these all dont help you need to replace pick up with a new one. i recommend original spare parts as those sold on ebay mostly chinese production with low quality and durability.

kind regards

Player reading invalid disc and disc is not spinning

My dual screen dvd player was reading invalid disc and disc was not spinning. Took player completely apart and white gears had dirt in them. This was preventing the player from spinning. Used dust remover and cleaned the whole inside and now it works great.

I have a Durabrand dual screen 7" portable dvd player Model PDV-722. Has worked fine for over a year. Now it just spins and says loading. Then it will say disc error. I have tried several discs and have...

Looks like your optical sensor is gone. And considering the price of the PDV-722 replacing the optical unit is not an option. By the other hand I have a burned slave monitor and I would be happy to buy yours to complete my set, which is reading DVD's very well.

Durabrand DVD Model 1002 Want load disc

The laser or pickup has failed or is out of alignment. That symptom is caused by either a dead motor, or a bad laser. The only thing you can MAYBE check is that there is no dirt or grease on the lens. If it is clean it is time for a new unit.

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.

DVD cannot read DVD's anymore

Have you tried cleaning lense with soft cloth and alcohol? Sometimes cd or dvd cleaners do not work well for some systems.
