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!

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.

CD player won't play after pressing the play button on all tracks


This problem is usually caused by dust or smog accumulating on the laser lens assembly. Unplug the unit and remove the top cover. Take a cotton swab and wet one end with glass cleaner. Wipe it gently across the lens (do not apply pressure). Use the other end of the swab to dry the lens. Reassemble the unit and test for skipping or non-playing discs.

Dvd read


This is becaz of the lens which is used to read the data frm the Disc. The weak (not damaged) lens may read CD but no DVD.

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

Used lens laser lens cleaner & now player won't play.


You can open the dvd and try to clean it manualy.open the dvd so you can see the lazer.take a normal earbud and wet it with normal methylated spirits and clean the lazer gently with that.the lazer cleaners hardly ever work 100%.Just remember not to push to hard on the lazer or you will brake it.gently clean and wait for lazer to dry and try again.
