    player will not read dvd

  • Anonymous Jan 30, 2009

    I have had this problem from one day past the warrenty experation.

  • TIM- Feb 08, 2009

    Will not read disk. Opened up the unit, disk doesn't spin. Spun up the disk manually, spindle motor can almost keep it going..but eventually slows. Motor driver IC gets quite warm. trying to decide if motor driver IC is the problem or the spindle motor. Am now looking for replacement spindle motor price to decide if unit is worth repairing. BTW: disk carriage and associated mechanisms is made by sony (in the suffex C unit anyway).

The only troubleshooting you can try is to unplug the unit for 30 minutes. If the problem persists, the unit needs to be repaired. If you're under warranty, the manufacturer will repair or replace the unit. If you're out of warranty, they may have an out of warranty exchange or repair program.

Your toshiba is not spinning that's why it keeps on saying loading. Unplug the dvd Open the device,once open plugin the dvd and put the dvd cleaner in the player. take your finger on the top where the dvd disk is and spin the disk. What happening is that you are cleaning the len. keep spinning until it spin on its own.Put the toshiba top back on and clean again. It should clean on it's on. Now you can play your dvd. Clean your dvd on a regular basic.

SOURCE: "Wrong disc" memorex dvd player error

Sounds like a build up of dust on the lens.

2 options -

Either buy a DVD lens cleaner

Note DVD LENS cleaner, NOT DVD Cleaner the latter is for the discs, not the player

or second option is to remove lid from your player (usually 5 or 6 screws) and gently swab the lens with a cotton bud or similar soft lint free product. Try not to push too hard on the lens or you may damage the mechanism.

The lens is really obvious as it faces upwards and looks like a small round clear glass bead.

Make sure its unplugged too!

I recenlty purchased a Memorex MVBD2520 Blu-Ray player. Upon trying to play a DVD, it read "This disk is incompatible." I've tried other disks, and tried CD's. I contacted Memorex, who sent me the...


I can suggest you to verify the unit is on BD mode. To do so, you have to press the USB/SD button on remote. If you already tried to load the firmware update and still that did not work; it seems like there is a problem with the actual laser lens.

This product has a year warranty, try taking it back to the store or contact Memorex at 1-877-363-6673 and ask how to get the unit replaced.

Have a Memorex MVD2050-BLK. Insert disk then displays loading then "no disk. Would like to clean using a cleaning disk but it won't load. What gives?


sure because a cleaning disk doesnt clean the laser lens at all;you will have to clean by your self using a qtips and wood alcool ;and wipe the lens gently and dot not apply to much pressure on lens while you wipe it.
if it does nt works after that you may have to replace the lens assembly or buy a new one.
hope that will help you

Will not play disk comes up no disk


With the power turned off, open the DVD Player, and then open the top where you load the DVD into the player. Locate the laser lens and notice that the laser is attached to a transport assembly that moves the laser diagonally outward in a slot. 1. Slide this assembly outward to the end of its track. 2. Slide the assembly back inward to the closest inward position. 3. Repeat the process of sliding the assembly outward and then back inward.4. Put in a music CD and let it play all the way through. This helps to calibrate the laser head assembly movement. When the music CD is finished playing. 5. Put in a DVD, and you should have a working unit again This is a factory solution from Mintek that was given to a customer who ask for help with the forever loading disc problems. This solution may work on other models of portable DVD players. Most portable DVD players use this type of transport mechanism. Try this solution it might work for you. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

Portable dvd wont play movies


I was getting the blue screen and open, then a black screen after loading the disk. If you have the AV switch in the wrong position, it will do the same thing. My kids must have moved it on me.
