I also bought mine at Sam's Club. I also have only used mine on trips. Mine also has a date code of 2005. Audiovox wants $80 to fix it plus shipping. I guess they just make throw away products that only wodk for a short time!.

We bought this player almost 5 years ago, and have the same problem. When we called audiovox at the time they told us that it was because some of the dvd mnufacturers had changed the format/technology in which they recorded the dvd programs. The biggest problem was with the Disney dvd's. Also, that they did not have any software upgrades at that time to upgrade the player. We used it for a while with the hit and miss movies that it would play, and then finally shelved it and bought a minivan with a preinstalled dvd player. Very rarely use the audiovox now. I am surprised; however, that after 5 years they would still have the same problem and have still not yet upgraded the software in this player. Good luck.

If it does it with all discs then the player is dying. If it is just the one disc I would say it is a bad disc. You can also see if there is dirt or grease or fingerprints on the laser pickup lens.

I have the same problem! The only way to fix this is to replace the motor that spins the DVD. if you take it apart and spin the DVD the movie will play. The motor is just wore out and has no torque to start the play process. I am still looking for a replacement motor for it and haven't found anyone that carries the motor required. Only Audiovox so far and they want 180 to send in and fix.

It may be that the disc you are trying to play is so dirty that it cannot be read. The other problem may be that the laser head is dirty especially with a portable device. Either way the machine cannot read the disc and gives up trying after some time. Careful cleaning shoudl resolve your issue.
