Question about Venturer PVS1950D Car DVD Player

1 Answer

DVD player plays some dvd's but not others. It takes a long time to load & then either doesn't play or freezes up at different times. Someone told me that the lazer could be getting weak. Is this a possibility, and if so, what should I do? Can I replace the dvd deck?

Hello Danabelle, The person who told you this is somewhat correct. Over time components tend to weaken and this is true for the laser in your DVD player, however you should not dismiss the fact that what you possibly could do is clean the laser. I would suggest that you go the a store that sells DVD cleaning equipment which should consist of a lens cleaning solution, and cleaning swabs (a fiber optic cleaning kit would work great here)now, to clean the lens you will have to open the unit so as to expose the lens which is the glass looking object near the DVD locking spindle. follow the kit instructions as to cleaning. (I do not recommend a DVD cleaning disk unless it is the brushless type.). Now once the DVD lens has been cleaned try to paly a DVD that formerly had a problem. If it plays you solved the issue. However if this does not solve the problem. The lens may have to be aligned and/or the carriage has to be cleaned. That procedure is a little involved and could lead to damage if not done correctly. If cleaning does not help, you should take the unit to a repair shop or find a shop on fixya that can do this for you. Please let me know if cleaning works. Thank you, Shuttle83

Boss Audio System Model #BV8966B - will not play DVD or CD's anymore & keeps saying "No Disc"

Some DVD players cant read some DVD s and
then it shows either "loading" or " no disc"..

it generally happens when you want to play "A copied DVD/CD " taken from somewhere else..
Some DVD players are fine at the beginning but after some time later,it begins to have some problems as you have..This is mainly due to LASER eye problems..
Just in case,quick remedy ,
pls Clean your DVD player's LASER lens .. A clean DVD player Lens ensures that your DVD disc would be read properly. Unfortunately, your DVD player's Lens accumulate as much dust and lint as the other parts of the DVD player. There are many available DVD lens cleaner kits that you can purchase and use to clean your DVD player.
YOUR DVD disc itself should be clean and finger prints free as well....
Here are three suggested DVD Lens Cleaner that should do the job of cleaning your DVD Player's lens.

if this remedy does not help and if your set has still under warranty ,consult to service they may replace the LASER Reader EYE...most of the time Laser Eye malfunctions and does this..
if it is not under warranty ,never ,never have someone repaired it..go buy a new one,It will be cheaper.. ...

Hope this helps! Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me

The dvd is not loading and will not play. the cds are working fine.


how long have you been using this player? I suspect the laser (lens) of the player. I think the laser (lens) is weak that's why it cannot read data/files on DVD discs.

To confirm if actually its a laser problem, insert an Audio CD into the player and see if will play. If it plays, then obviously, your laser (lens) is weak. But if it doesn't play Audio CD, then it might still be the laser (lens) or a mechanism problem.

Get a lens cleaner, use it to clean the lens. If that doesn't solve the problem, get a screw driver, open the player's cover so that you can gain access to the lens, use a cotton board to clean the surface of the lens. This should clean dust or dirt that might be on the lens.

If non of the above solves the problem, then know that you need to replace the laser to a brand new one.

To replace the lens, remove the bad laser, use it as a sample to get exactly the same type and do the replacement. Note that replacing a laser (lens) needs a professional touch, so if you cannot replace the laser, get it to a repairman to fix it for you.

Once this us done, your player will play all DVD discs again.

DVD player will not play disc.

If you are loading a store bought DVD and that it what it say's. The transport needs to be replaced. roughly 150-200. If you are loading "burned" DVD's the format may be wrong and the unit cannot read it. Best suggestion I can give you is to first buy a "Laser Lens Cleaner" on that uses fluid. Any electronics store sells them for 15-20. Run it thru the unit a couple of times then try a clean, store bought DVD. If it plays, problem solved. With your DVD's, if you have any liquid car polish like mother's or meguiars, put a couple drops on the disc and spread around with your finger, let it set a couple then buff off with a microfiber towel. This works wonders for old scratched cd's and dvd's and helps protect new ones from getting scratched. As for the Lens cleaner, run it thru every product you have that uses discs 3 or 4 times a year, it's the best preventative maintance and only maintanance you can do on a CD player DVD or PC. Hope this helps

Your laser eye is either dirty or tired(out of alignment). Buy a cleaning kit, if it doesn't help get someone who knows how to re-align it.
