Re: Keeping the DVD player going

The problems with dvd & cd players, are located in two areas - both mechanical.
#1 On the laser cartridge, there are minute springs that hold the lens while a coil and magnet arrangement moves the lens (similar to a speaker cone) to focus on the disc. These springs become weak and break on the cheaper models - Therefore it can't see the disc information clearly - and the output is not digital - it says no disc.

#2. The main bearing at the centre of these drives can run dry and start to become rough. This may cause the disc to wobble enough to start to vibrate. This failure is characterised by a noisy drive just before giving up.

So use a product that sources a quality optics package, and a decent framework.
It's amazing that the electronics can compensate for cheap build quality - but they do! - a bit like good suspension compensates for bad road quality.

When I open the dvd lid, and I put the dvd in and close it, the screen still says its open and it wont do anything until the dvd lid is closed. Even though I close it, the player still thinks its open.

There is a mechanical switch that is operated by the lid as it's closed. Sometimes, a DVD player such as yours can be made to work by pressing down on the lid but this is a sure indication that something is wrong with the switch. It isn't practical to hold the lid down for the entire time you're viewing a movie so repair or replacement is the only solution

Matsui PL700 lid won't close properly

no need to tighten the cap or whatever, that's the problem there is with the switch control, which must be touched when the lid closed. you just need to open the DVD case cover, then locate these switches, make sure the switch is still normal or not, if it is normal that you only need to give a little pad on the suppressor to the switch. suppressor usually exists on the DVD casing.

Temporarily you can hold the lid closed with your hand and press play and leave the lid after it loads the disc. But for permanent solutuion you will require to repair its lid switches,

Lense not reading properly

Check to see if it is not the lens, but rather the fact that the little tab on the lid that closes the disc compartment is not making firm contact with the mechanism that tells the disc to play. I had the same problem (player would play for a couple of minutes, then it's stop and I'd get an "Open" message. I called Mustek and they unhelpfully suggested various tricks to do with the lens carriage, none of which worked. On my own a carved a matchstick to the shape of the tab on the lid, and stuck it in there. That worked! Eventually (since you can't watch it with the lid up), I just put some duct tape (a little pice) around the tab, and that has worked like a charm. Makes it hard to open the lid again (I use a knife to pry it up), but hey--the player works now!

Portable dvd player Film's stop and go back to loading screen

Not sure it's a solution, per se, but I discovered that my Matsui was acting as if I was opening and closing it, so I guessed that it was the lid. Once I put a paperweight on the "Press to Open" part of the lid, the DVD played through. I'm looking how to fix the lid but that's a workaround for now. Best of Luck - M

DVD Door won't close

It needs to be realligned. There is a little peg (usually white) that rides in a slot under the tray. It has popped out and needs to be put back in the track.

My friend give me hers in frustration for the same problem. Turned out to be that little tiny switch under the lid. Inside, just to the right of th play button, is asmall black needle-looking thing sticking up. It's protected by a little plastic fence. This whole thing is less about 5 mm across. To test it, open the lid, then use a pencil or something to hold down the switch ALL THE WAY, then see if the unit springs to life. If so, then look at the bottom of the lid and find the little bump that presses down on the switch. Find some way to build that up a little bit, maybe a few layers of fingernail polish, or a small felt sticker, or some glue. Once it starts pushing that switch down a little further, the unit will work OK. I ended up using a teeny tiny little screw like the kind that mounts a hard drive in a PC, but I had to drill out a hole for it first. I wouldn't do it that way again. Now if that fixes your problem, let me know exactly what that wide/normal switch does! I can't tell if it actuall keep the correct aspect ratio or if it just stretches the picture. Drop me a line at and let me know. Hope that helps you out!
