I work for Coby technical support. Our customer service phone number is 1-800-727-3592.

Unfortunately, Coby is a company whose electronics cannot be repaired because there are no spare parts available. If you were to find an after-market company that sales parts such as a laser lens for the dvd mechanism, you would want an electronics repair person to install it for you. Unfortunately, I don't know of any company that sales such parts, and the repair would cost you more than a new player would cost.

If you feel this solution doesn't deserve a good rating, please let me know why so that I may better assist you. If there is anything more I can do to help, I will!

You can't replace the lens, its carriage is welded on the reading head. You could replace the entire disk mechanism with one recovered from a junked one.

The machine keeps stating bad disc, for all dvds. We have the GoVideo DVD VCR combo... we tried playing several different dvds and the machine keeps coming up with "bad disc".

It could just be dirt on the lazer/lens. Try cleaning it with a good brand name lens cleaner for DVD/CD. If that doesn't do the trick there might be damage to the lens, or an electrical fault.

HI. the optical lens assembly has failed. this units optical assembly is one whole piece. the actual issue here is a failed spin motor but, due to the fact that the assembly is integrated, you will need to have the entire assembly replaced.

Dvd player reading no disc error

where you say u have cleaned the lens have you been in side it, if so does the dvd spin round when you put a disc in, if it does and it doesnt read try a cd in it if it reads that then it will be the lazer, if it doesnt read it it could still be the lazer but could be a few other things like spin motor.

hope this helps
