"No Valid Disc"

I have a Durabrand Dual-7C. When I load a disk, it shows "loading", I can hear it working, then it says "no valid disc". I've tried several discs, none that are not scratched.

You can find the spindle motor in a wore out cd rom drive or just about any house hold electronics , that you could take it out of something else that isn't any good any more , you can find them type motors just about in anything .

Re: "No Valid Disc"

These units are known for bad spin motors. the unit appears to be working , but does not obtain the speed needed to extract the information for the a/d converter to correlate.Unfortuneately it is not economically feasible to repair there units. I would however clean the laser just to rule out the obvious. Scrivitron

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.

Cant load disc

I was having the same problem with my pvd-702...I genlty cleaned the lens with a dap of alcohol on a q-tip. I blew the lens so it was dry and the dvd player started working. No need to try to call the 1-800 number, it is disconnected and the warranties are not valid, because the address does not exist. try the q-tip, it worked for me.

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.

Portable DVD player not spinning says no disc

Check to see if the disc is spinning. You can do this by one of two ways either
  • a:) Listen for the disc to spin after inserting it or
  • b:) Place disk in drive right way up (so that the label is not upside down). Load the disc and eject the disc again to se if the disc has moved i.e. the writing may now be upside down.
If the disc does not spin then it is likely that there is something wrong with the disc motor. If it does spin then the issue is more likely to be with the laser unit. Try cleaning the lens but if this doesn't help it's likely to be a more serious and ultimately more expensive problem.

Hope this helps
