It is likely that the drive has failed. Apparently it is a common problem with the portable players

SOURCE: DVD player issues

Most likely the dvd is dirty, scratched, or chipped. Try cleaning the dvd disk with a soft cloth (chamois works best). Look at the surface of the disk and if it is scratched lightly, dust and dirt particles, fingerprints, etc will cause refractions from the laser light in the dvd player, which is then read as an error by the dvd player. Cleaning it with a soft cloth will sometimes help.

If that does not work, hold the disk up towards a light source and look for light coming through from the other side. If this happens, the disk is unreadable and unrepairable as the data source has been corrupted.

SOURCE: my portable dvd player shows no disc when i put my dvd in player

Hi....
Very lightly clean the laser lens ( looks like a very small eyepiece)
with 91% or better alcohol on a swab. Then very lightly dry it off.
Also..have you tried another DVD or CD in it?
Check for dust or debris in where the laser pickup is

SOURCE: portable durabrand dvd wont read disc

If it is reading a burned movie from the internet make sure you set you brun software for captability mode.

If this is a orginal disk make sure its free of dust and scratches.

1. buy a lens cleaning kit from walmart or any other eletronics store.
2. Make sure the disc is free of scratches.
3. change disc's and see if it works on any others.

if these steps do not help then the laser would need to be replaced. Durabrand is a Wal mart brand i had mine for 2 years and i had to clean the lens 3 times with a cleaning kit.

Thanks

looks like your lcd is either bad or the plug has come loose. If you can get it apart, try reseating the cable to the display.

Disc won't load


Try a different disc, one that worked before if problem still persists try and buy a lens cleaning disc that should solve your problem. If not, your optical laser head needs replacing.

Does not spin dvd


Sometimes the brushless motor driver circuit fails. Rarely does the motor itself go bad. On some models, if the the laser diode is too weak to read the disc, the player will not bother to spin it. It won't spin so a lens cleaner disc won't work You can try to take it apart and clean the tiny lens. Don't use alcohol. Windex and a Q-tip works great to remove grease and dirt. Don't buff it hard. Just wipe lightly a few times and look at it at an angle to make sure it is shiny, not hazy. Almost all of these are not an economically viable repair. If cleaning the lens does not help, you are looking at another portable player.

The dvd player will not read the disc


If it won't read any disc you put in, consider getting a new DVD player, the eye is most likely gone bad. If it is only one disc that you can't read i would suggest a Scotch DVD Cleaner kit. Cleans and Repairs discs, helps prevent skipping and mistracking, and repairs minor surface scratches improving disc audio and image quality.

Hello
Either your DVD players Laser Pickup Unit is dirty or defective or its 'sled' motor has damaged. Sled motor is one, which spins the disc inside. if it does not spins, the main system IC won't get any signal that the disc is "IN", and will show the messege "No Disc". The same will happen if the laser pickup unit is defective or dirty. Insert a Head Cleaning Disc into the system, and play it for atleast 3 times. If there is any dirt or dust, this will solve your DVD's problem. If not, it should be serviced by any skilled technician. It is not a user reparable item, as you have to take out its loading mechanism completly out of it for repair. OK.

My dvd player won't read my dvds. it attempts for about 30-60 seconds and then reads "no disk"


The laser is either dirty, or out of alignment or possibly too weak to read the disc. Try one of the laser cleaning disck with an alignment check I believe that maxell sells these, if you can't find one then a repair technician can adjust or clean i, but if the laser is no good then it will need replaced. Might be better to replace the unit before having a tech work on it or your costs will exceed a new unit.
