Not playing movies

For some reason, i think the lens in the dvd player is stuck. I dont know why, becuase one min, i was watching a movie, then i put on another but it wasnt working, i tried the next and it still wasnt working. I tried to put on the first that i knew worked, but it no longer did. i noticed that the lens wasn't in the right spot, (nest to the spinner) and for some reason it wasn't moving, which is probably why ithe movies dont work, everytime i put in the movie it make a weird clicking sound. how can i fix that?

Re: Not playing movies

The clicking sound is the lens assy trying to move on the traverse mechanisim and the release spring is ticking. You might want to crack her open and look for any foreign objects in the laser area. You can also try to move the lens assy by hang gently sometimes they get stuck for no reason. Let us know :-)

2 symptoms; don't know if they're related or not. For some time now, when trying to watch a movie on my small screen Coby Portable DVD player, it will play just fine for about half the movie, then...

I'm sorry that the DVD player is not playing discs are expected. Based on the information you have provided, it appears that the Lens head of the DVD player is dirty. I suggest that you use a lens cleaning disc to clean the lens head and it should resolve the issue.

Thanks for understanding.
Please let me know if the issue persists.

Player stops during movie or will not start playing movie

the reason the dvd stops a movie while watching or doesn't play at all is that the lens is already weak.

the best advice is to replace the lens.

you can take it to an expert for repairs or fix it yourself.

to fix it yourself, you will have to get a compatible replacement lens, then try to unscrew the dvd player, carefully disconnect the components to locate the lens, try not to damage any part of it while doing this, the remove the old lens and carefully fix the new one.

couple it back together then try a cd on it. if you cant do it yourself, then take it to an expert.

Dvd player only plays some movies

it might be sevral reasons:
1. Check if region code is the same for movies you playing and DVD player
2. If you using video CDs or copyed DVDs, player might be preventing to playback those kind of discs, due to copyright laws or due to different speed settings for DVD player and discks you using (for intsrance you player can playback DVD/CD+R, and you using DVD/CD-R, or mximum allowed playback speed is 16 you using disk recorded at 24, but this is in case you using burned/copied CD/DVDs)
3. Check it lens is durty. For that use CD/DVD lens cleaning disk
($6 in Walmart, if you are in US)
4. Check if movies you are have the same coloring system, i.e NTSC for US
5. Check CD/DVD for scratches, some DVD players can not playback scratched disks
Please kindly let me know if my information was helpfull for you or you need more info
Good Luck

Dont know what to do

Probably not much help. but the 1st thing I would do is check to see if the disc is even turning...put it in with label straight up, then when it fails, eject...odds are severely against the disc being oriented the same way if it spins, so if it hasn't moved, the main drive motor is bound up or dead. Either way, return it.

Well I have been repairing dvd players a while now and the main problem spots are laser ,spindle motor, laser tracking motor and the biggest culprit and un suspecting one the lens cable .....most of them range from the lens cable to the spindle motor though... the constant movement of the lens in watching a whole movie causes the cable to unknowingly and slowly break and if the spindle motor is defective ,on inserting a dvd the disc spins slowly and you may hear the lens chirping ... so you can check those....
