Ineed to obtain a cvilux cable for the above DVD player this is the flat cable that goes from the circuit board to the laser .
It seems that other people have had the same problem with this cable but no one seems to know where to get one .The same cable is fitted to the goodmans portable
I wonder if you have any suggestions.

The problem is in the laser pickup, there is a cable that is hooked to the pickup head and lower printed circuit board, from the sounds of it the cable has become intermittent, play a standard dvd movie, if no change a defective flat cable, but if problem stops it is the laser pickup head.
Hello Try an other disc. Soem discs may not recogonized. It will depend on its recording. Put an MP3 and Audio CD disc in it and see whether they are regognaized by the player. If it does not reads any disc, there are two possiblilities for this fault. The first one is of dirty or dusty laser pickup lens, and the other is with a faulty laser pick up uit itself. Just put a cleaning disc in it, and play it for at least three times. Check it after. If this does not hel you, beofre replacing the laser pickup unit, just replace the strip wire that goes from this laser pickup unit to the main board. It is a flat thin cable, can be bought from most of the electronic spare part selling shops at your town. Even repacing the strip wire, and cleaning does not help you, you have to repalce the laser pickup unit. OK.
The problem is that the laser or MPEG printed circuit board have become faulty.
You can try to clean the laser by removing the case and wiping the lens with a soft cotton bud or cue tip. If that doesnt fix the isse you may need to contact the authorised repair agent to source a laser, i advise to get the entire DVD loader assembly as it is easier to replace and often cheaper.
If the problem still hasnt been resolved need to replace the MPEG printed circuit board, normally a small circuit board next to the DVD loader assembly often attached with a flat ribbon cable and another set or wires plugging into the power supply printed circuit board. After replacing that part, the problem should be solved. I hope this offers some assistance. Good luck.
The problem with your unit is either a faulty laser or it could also be a faulty mpeg printed circuit board.
The way i would go about solving this issue if the unit is not under warranty is first try to clean the laser.
You can do this removing the case from the unit and if the laser is accessable, use a cue-tip or soft, clean cotton bud to gently wipe the 'eye' of the laser. Make sure to use clean and soft Cotton tips as you do not want to scratch the laser and cause further damage.
After you have done this you can test the unit without replacing the outer case, his will also give you a chance to see if the laser is lighting up to bright, concentrated red dot.
If this isnt happening you need to replace the laser. Nearly every LG product i have dealt with has a yellow or white sticker with a part number on it to make ordering another easy.
If it does not have locatable part number, refer to your local authorised repair agent as they will be able to either repair the unit for you or be able to source and obtain a 'DVD Deck Assembly', which is the entire setup that contains the laser, the drawer that the disc sitson as well as the spindle motors.
Replacing the DVD Deck Assembly is as straight foward as marking everthing you remove with a coloured marker, so you know where it ame from and being careful with any flat ribbon cables you may need to remove near or attached the laser
You need to remove the case from the dvd player and try cleaning the laser with a cotton bud or cue tip to get any grease or grime off the eye of the laser. If that doesnt solve the issue, you may need to source a spare parts provider and replave the laser assembly. If all else fails the only thing left that can cause a problem is called the MPEG Printed Circuit Board and you can normally find that attatched to the Laser loader assembly by a flat ribbon cable or small wire plugs. Good Luck.
It sounds like the most like culprits are the laser assembly or it could be the Mpeg printed circuit board, often found attached to the laser assy by flat ribbon cabbles. the part number should be on the printed circuit board or laser assembly, otherwise obtainable from their closest aurthorised dealer. Good Luck.
The problem is you need to replace the laser assembly if the disc is spinning and not being read, or if the disc isnt spinning, you need to replace the mpeg printed circuit board attached to the laser assembly. Good Luck.
it is either the laser(lens) or the mpeg printed circuit board. its easiest to replace the dvd loader , and to obtain one, you may need to contact LG and find their closest authorised dealer, they normally retail from $50 to $70 and depends when your model was made depends on availability. good luck.
Hi one solution to your probelom is that the lazer is underpowered.here is a fix it 4 u.
A major problem began 2 years ago Some New DVDs would not always play. Message on LED display says "NO PLAY". I discovered today that the problem lies with the laser being underpowered for some DVDs.
On the web I found a fix.
Warning! Always have someone competent with electricity to fix the SA-HT80 with the following instructions:
1. Remove all disks from player.
2. When door is open slide front door cover upwards to remove.
3. Leave door open.
4. Important UNPLUG FROM THE MAINS!
5. Remove the 3 screws from under the front panel then remove cover screws.
6. Disconnect player from the mains. Remove cover.
7. Once you have removed the cover you will see on left side is the drive parts.
8. Pull out the two flat cables which go to the Drive from the
vertical circuit Board(Hold the cable with thumb and forefinger close to the
connector and slide the flat cables out of their connector.
9. Remove the screws fixing the drive unit to the base of the cabinet.
10. Now remove drive unit.
11. Placing the drive upright on a flat surface proceed to remove the two screws holding the Plastic bridge
that sits over the disk.
12. Also undo the screw on the small circuit board which holds the disk sensor switch onto the bridge
and unclip that small board. Remove this plastic bridge over the drive.
13. On underside of drive remove the two small screws from the drive circuit board.
You can now gently prize this board loose.(There is some resistance as a plastic clasp is holing onto the
14. Turn Drive back to upright position.
15. Remove the screws which hold the drive in(Screws go through rubber mounts to cushion the drive).
16. Once you have loosened the drive look at the underside and you will see one flat cable goes to the Laser.
Where this cable meets the metal part you will see a tiny device connected on the outside edge
of the flat cable.
17. Turn the POT 1/5 off a turn clockwise(looks like a small washer and be gentle with it) I used pointed
nose pliers for this.
18. Now reassemble DVD player.
19. Ensure cover is in place and screwed down before connecting to
a power supply.
This is a guide which you will follow at your own risk.
Happy fixing Gerald
