This is due to faulty DVD lens/head. Try cleaning it with DVD/CD hed cleaning CDs.If still the problem persists, contact near by service center for replacing the faulty Lens.

Does not spin dvd


Sometimes the brushless motor driver circuit fails. Rarely does the motor itself go bad. On some models, if the the laser diode is too weak to read the disc, the player will not bother to spin it. It won't spin so a lens cleaner disc won't work You can try to take it apart and clean the tiny lens. Don't use alcohol. Windex and a Q-tip works great to remove grease and dirt. Don't buff it hard. Just wipe lightly a few times and look at it at an angle to make sure it is shiny, not hazy. Almost all of these are not an economically viable repair. If cleaning the lens does not help, you are looking at another portable player.

Player reading invalid disc and disc is not spinning


My dual screen dvd player was reading invalid disc and disc was not spinning. Took player completely apart and white gears had dirt in them. This was preventing the player from spinning. Used dust remover and cleaned the whole inside and now it works great.

My sylvania portable DVD player won't read discs the display says No Disc after the spin. What do I do?


I had same problem with a sylvania portable DVD: no disc. After cleaning the laser didn't work, I took the unit apart, and found that there is a small gear that moves the laser back and forth across the disc.. The gear could easily be misaligned with a rough bump along the drive.. All I did was realign the gear to the center where the disc was. Inside, there was even a small lever to pull back on to do this.. I also noticed a small Ribbon cable connecting the laser to the main board. Again, seemed nimble. I detached the ribbon, cleaned the connectors with alcohol and reattached. Happy to say, it works perfectly now. :). Good luck.

My memorex DVD player doesn't read the discs anymore. I cleaned the laser with alcohol and and a cotton swab. It will spin the disc for a while and then will say no disc. It's not the discs because I...


If you already tried to clean the laser lens and that did not work, it seems like the lens is defective. This product has a 90 day warranty so you'll need a copy of your proof of purchase in order to get a warranty replacement from Memorex.

Player doesn't recognize DVDs


I hate to be the bearer of potentially bad news, but the problem is not likely the motor. The player attempts to detect a disc present, once that has been completed, the disc will be spun. Since you have the unit open, try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Next try a music CD. If the CD will play but the DVD will not, the optics have failed and need to be replaced.

Keep us posted.

I'm having an identical problem with my very new "Memorex DVD". After trouble shooting everything suggested in the manual, I'm on my way to buy another "new" dvd player. Definately will not be Memorex.
