Question about Necvox RE-8169D 8 All-In-One Motorized System Car Video Player
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.
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

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.
