DVD player making noise...figured out that the laser is stuck...

We opened up our Phillips model dvd player and figured out that the little side wheels that adjust the laser up and down is stuck...and can't move the laser forward- which in turn is making the pdvd player to make a loud noise...is this something we can fix?

This pioneer DVD player is rejecting all disks. Kindly assist


Most dvd players (or anything with a laser) will fail eventually. If the laser failed, there isn't much point trying to get it repaired.

Panasonic dvd player does not read cd and dvd.


Hi,

There are numerous possibilities as to what may be causing this. It may be that the laser pick up inside the unit has failed or is misaligned and cannot read the disks or there is some other component failure inside the unit itself. Without seeing the unit on a bench for diagnosis it is impossible to say.

However there are two main things you can try yourself that may resolve the issue.

1) Unplug the unit completely from the mains supply. Leave the power disconnected for at least 5 minutes. Power up again and check to see if the disk is recognised.

2) If this fails the next thing to do is clean the laser lens. Often the cause of this behaviour is that the lens has become opaque with a grimy residue or dust particles are impeding the laser.

The most effective way to resolve this is to open the unit and gently clean the lens with a Q-Tip and some isopropyl alcohol.

The other option which is easier to do but may not be as effective as the Q-Tip method is to use a laser cleaning disk such as this one.

Simply insert the disk as you would any CD or DVD and it performs a cleansing action to the laser lens.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa.

This usually means the laser is damaged or our of alignment; DVD player will need to be replaced. It can also be incompatible media - not all DVD players can read all brands of DVD+R ot DVD-R discs.

Change regional code


To changethe Region code on your DVD player, open Control Panel - System - Hardware -Device manager, and click on DVD/CD ROM drives, then right click on the DVDdrive and click Properties then click on DVD Region.
You can enter a new region and it also shows you how many changes have been made.
NOTE you can make only 4 changes and the player will lock permanently on the4th change.
If you want to play DVD from any region you maybe able to upgrade the firmwareto make it region free BUT if you make a mistake or installed the wrongfirmware the player will be a piece of junk.
The best solution to make the player region free is to install a piece ofsoftware that allows you to play DVDs from any region. There are severalavailable on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free From:-

No disc error even with DVD inside the player


I am sure that you have tried using another DVD.
Try putting a Music CD and see if it can read it.
In any case, even if the CD works, it looks that you have a faulty unit the laser on the drive is probably bad now but just in case it is just dirty, try to clean it with a Cleaning Disk and see if the problem disappear.

Philips 1gb go gear not working


look just mark this as solved and heres why: inside theres a little hard drive and when that and the board it was connected to got wet it fried them both there is no way to fix that however you can look inside to see for your self with a small phillips screw driver At the top right theres a phillips head screw-remove that and pull it out just a little then turn it as theres a little catch in the middle of it,if you try to pull it straight out it may break so turn it while you do so it will come loose just have to kinda twist it or you can slide a credit card down the side til you feel it then it will open/ the little hard drive and curcuit board is alot like a pc and water would fry a pc just like it did that mp3
