Open message when closed/disc wont spin

Pretty simple, i put in the disc, close the lid and i still receive the "open" message in the to left, sometimes with a disc logo, sometimes not. if i switch it from av2 back to dvd while its in, the disc will start to spin momentarily, before stopping and showing the open message again, PLEASE HELP ME im going on a road trip very soon.

Re: Open message when closed/disc wont spin

I figured it out, it was the little plastic sensor stick that tells the unit that the lid is closed therefore reading the disc. cheap piece of plastic that has surely snapped on many a unit. good luck replacing it. i rigged it though problem solved

Where do i put the dvd in at and how to turn it on

  1. Press the open/close latch on the front of the DVD player.
  2. When the screen drops down look up at the compartment where it was. Press the upper right hand corner button on the DVD player to drop the little black tray.
  3. Just place the DVD in upside down and click it into place.
  4. Now close the little black try.
  5. The unit powers up as soon you drop the screen down. You can also power it on with the remote power button which is all the way up and all the way to the left on the remote.
regards, Tony

I have a jensen uv10 phase linear in-dash dvd player it has been working fine but now it will not read cd's or dvd I have tried burnt disk and ones I bought and the receiver keeps saying bad disk I have...

No disc error can be a DIY like the following steps.

Assuming that the disc is good.

1.Cleaning the lens. - Sometimes because of dust the lens can't read any disc.

Try clean the lens by soft cotton buds. Be careful while doing this.

2.Replacing the ribbon - Check the ribbon connected to the lens from the main board for scratch, damage. Once it has an open line then of course the lens can't read the disc. Also try to erase the contact by pencil eraser.

If you've done the steps above and the symptoms still there then the next step requires you a little knowledge in soldering technique and reading the ohmmeter.

3.Checked the motor - Check the motor that spin the disc with an ohmmeter. You can test it using the ohmmeter (x1) even it is connected on the lens assembly.

Good motor - reading should be fairly high and it will spin.

Bad motor - reading will drop to low resistance and will not spin.

Hint : 50% of my repaired unit the above parts are commonly caused of the problem.

If you confirmed that you have a defective motor then replace it with a new one. Before replacing the new motor you have to check the clearance of the disc holder with the old one. The clearance should be the same as the old because if not the lens will not read the disc if it is too far or too close.

If you already cleaned the lens, and confirmed that the ribbon is good as well as the motor then I've advice you to send it to repair shop because the next step should be done with an expert because it is quite technical diagnosing the fault between the pick-up lens and the main board.

Thanks for using fixya.

Put in disc also same same

Google manual and model number to download a manual.

It sounds like the DVD player itself is not working, maybe you can see if the laser unit moves if you hold down the "closed/open" switch, DO NOT LOOK directly into the laser, it will damage your eyes, tilt the unit so you look in from "the side".

If it does not move try to touch the slider to see if it just needs a little help, remember it is fragile, it is positioned and moved by small plastic finns (do not know if it is the right word).

Monitor wont come out

I have the exact same problem on mine. If yours is like mine, It clicks a little when it tries to open and close. If that is the case, The gears that open the dvd player might be stripped or just need to be adjusted.

It won't open or close

There is a plasic cover that goes over the gear behind the screen on the left side. Take a look at that, it might be jammed in the gear prventing it from open or close.
