Hi, all DVD players use a dual laser package, because the frequency (color) of the light emitted is different for CDs and DVDs. There are two possibilities here, either the DVD laser part of the dual laser package has failed, (most probable), or the connection to the circuit board has failed, (rare, but it has happened). It is always conceivable that there is a fault on the DVD playback part of the board, but this is incredibly rare. The probability of your successfully replacing the laser depends on your skill as an instrument technician.I as a qualified tech would only claim 80% success and lasers aren't cheap.

Plays cds but not dvds


If the lens is clean (clean with cotton swab and alcohol), then the optics are failing. DVDs require more power and accuracy to be read than CDs. The ability to read CDs but not DVDs is usually a good indication that the optics are starting to fail.

Doesn't read dvd's


This problem is down to failure of the laser and an only be solved by replacing it. Samsung are aware of this fault but will only offer a free replacement if the unit is still covered by it's warranty.
They do offer a replacement service but charge £94 for it.

Portable dvd player will play music cds but not video dvds


Chances are, your DVD player uses one laser to read CDs, and a different laser to read DVDs (since Cds and DVDs are read at different wavelenghts of light). If the DVDs you're trying to watch work properly in other DVD players, it probably means that the DVD laser is dirty, damaged, or burned out. Though you can try cleaning the laser (use Google for suggestions on how to do this, or check the Audiovox website), you will most likely have to get the DVD player repaired, or buy a replacement. Many of the newer CD/DVD players sold today use a single combination laser, which reads both CDs and DVDs, which means that when the laser fails, it will not work at all. Wish I had better news for you, but I guess that the only consolation you have is that your Audivox player still works with CDs...
