You need to try to clean the laser head and the transport. To do this you will need cotton swabs, isopropyl alcohol and small cans of lithium grease and compressed air.. Open the up the compartment that the dvd discs are placed. In the center of the compartment you will find the spindle and a laser transport. In the transport you will see the laser head. Take a cotton swab and put a small amount of alcohol on the tip. Rub the tip of swab gently across the head of the laser. Do this until the head look bright and shiney. Use the other end of the swab to dry the excess moisture off the laser head. Take another swab and use a small amount of alcohol on the tip and go around the transport device cleaning the dust and dirt from it. Use a small can of compressed air to blow away any dust and dirt in the compartment. Once the laser head is cleaned and the transport is cleared of dust and dirt, Move the transport to the outer most point and bring it back in to its closest point. Do this several times. Do not applie to much pressure while doing it.If you find ruff and uneven action. Clean the areas of problem and return the transport action to smooth and easy operation. If still not smooth and easy. Take another cotton swab and use some lithium grease in very small amounts to lubricate the transport rails. Again move the transport back and forth to lubricate the laser transport. This should return the transport to normal action. Now play a music cd to calibrate the laser head . Let the cd play through a couple of times. After doing this you can now try a dvd disc and it should play normally. If it still does not play correctly, check the spindel to see if it is loose. If this is the case use a drop of super glue to tighten it up. Let it dry completely and try the disc again. It should work correctly. If you are still having a problem.You either have a problem with the laser itself or the drive motor. The drive motor problem would usually be noticed on the playing of the cd. The laserhead and the motor can be replaced if this is the problem. You can find more information on how to do these repairs on you tube. Put cleaning and repairing portable dvd players in the search engine and it will bring up videos on how people have done these types of repairs. I hope this information will help you with your problem.

BRDVD Bluray incompatibility list



INSIGNIA BRDVD Blueray player


I like many people have bought a Bluray movie for my BRDVD Bluray player to have it not work. It is unfortunate part of Bluray and near every player has or will have some disc that will not play until a later update is made.

I noticed that it is really hard to find list that tell you what Bluray movies have problems as well as what those problems are. I will have a short list and will try to keep it updated whenever I get a report that a Bluray is having problems. Please report any problems by sending me a email at Tthekraut@yahoo.com or sending me a message in the comments here.


  • Inglorious Bastards-Disc will skip back and not play movie through the main screen. No fix is confirmed.
  • Couples Retreat- Main movie will not play. No fix is confirmed.
  • An Education(BBC video)-Movie skips back to main screen and will not play main video.No fix is confirmed
  • Alvin and the chipmunks-Main movie will not play. No is confirmed at this time.
  • "9"(Nine)- Main movie will not play. No fix confirmed
  • Twilight- Canada only- Movie would not play. Please contact the company located on the disk sleeve. It was a glitch that many player could not overcome so it would go back to main menu.
  • Percy Jackson-said to skip and at times not play at all.
  • Kick ***- Movie will not play and just gives an error on start up.

Please contact me with any info on fixes and problems. I will make several other lists for other players. I bought Inglorious Bastards and all I have is a $25 coaster now. I would like to keep this updated to help others not do the same. I will post any and all problems people are having with differant disk and any possible solutions.

Most likely the default format of the video that you are playing is not supported buy your receiver. You may try to go into the audio setup and switch it to another format and/or try a disk that supports other audio formats to see if you still have the problem. They any are always coming out with newer versions of dolby and dts. So some times the new version is not fully compatible with the older receivers.

Let me know i you have any more problems or questions

I have the philips 120hz and some movies are smooth, others jump


I would advise knocking down the resolution. Try and use software, like red kawa, to convert a few of your movies to different formats till you find a decent one. A widely accepted codec setup is Divx/XVid (both are the same) and MP3 sound.

JVC TH-C30 dvd movies skip


Check your formatting on the DVD recorder, you need to finalize the disk to be playable on "any" player. That should solve the issue. Your JVC is looking for specific code as it reads the disc, when it's missing or not understood by your JVC it will either stop play or skip over it's interperated missing info. Hope this helps
