Re: dvd player

To test the laser pick-up, push the lid swith down to simulate to unit it is closed. Turn unit on to see if the pick-up goes to the middle, tries to focus and the laser can be seen on the lens. If the laser is not present during this operation, bad pick-up. Replace entire unit due to replacement cost of pick-up vs new unit. If it is 70% cost of part vs the new unit, I would opt for a new one. If you are not familiar with a repair of this nature, please do not try. There are more adjustments than just a new pick-up.

Philips portable dvd player (white tab or) wire strip is out

This is a really easy fix. There should be a little black bar that is right about the point that the white tab looks like it should go. The black bar will snap into place or pop up if yours is already snapped down. I took the entire DVD player casing off to re-attach this tab but it could probably be done without that in retrospect. I needed the room to maneuver however. The blue tip will insert just below that black bar and when you've met resistance (which will be rather soon, I could see all of the other color stripes) snap the black bar down. The tab should be held in place and the DVD should read again. Hope that helps!

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

CyberHome DVD player not responding...

The internal power supply has failed and is shutting down each time you try to turn it on. To remove your DVD there is a slot on the bottom labeled: Emergency.... with an arrow pointing the direction you need to push a lever to open the drawer. With good lighting you'll see the tab you need to slide over. Use a small flat blade screwdriver and the drawer will open enough to grasp it and pull it open. The power supply will need to be repaired, but it may have caused other damage and may be more expensive than buying a new player.

Try going into player's menu, and set video out or TV type to NTSC.
It might have switched to PAL, or disc is PAL and player is set to any.
