Re: discs will not turn

I spun the disc in my pdv-0701a with a dremel tool after cleaning the lens did not help. I held the door button down with a pencil eraser. The CD with mp3 file read and played just fine. Now I have to figure out if it is the motor or the drive electronics. It's not always the laser pick or the lens guys... - Terry

Re: discs will not turn

Dear dmiller,this is a common problem with dvd players.Most probably the optical assembly of your player has gone bad.Please get it checked by some good technician.Replacing this unit should solve your problem.Thanks.

Will not read disc

As it's less than a year old the manufacturer's warranty should still apply.

Your player probably has a failed laser head unit; if you have to pay to fix this fault then you'd be better off just chucking it away and buying a replacement as it will be cheaper.

Not playing dvd saying no disc

You can try a cleaning disc. If the unit is less then a year old I would have it serviced under the manufacturer warranty. If you still need further assistance please let me know.
Thank you,
