Question about GPX D1816 DVD Player

2 Answers

GPX D1816SIL load a DVD into it, then it says "Loading.." for a couple of minutes, and then it says "Bad Disc" when the disc has no scratches or smudges on it. It happens with all of my DVDS. I have only used it once, and it worked fine, and then the next day it started with this problem and has been like it ever since...

First and foremost, you have to realize that you just bought a brand new piece of crap. If your screen is saying 'bad disk' there is a way of fixing it by taking the dvd player apart.  Take the top cover off by unscrewing some of the screws off. Then take off the black cover off the dvd reader.  I then moved the laser unit by hand back and forth on the sliders. I did this very gently. This worked for me after a while of testing different things and staring at it for  bit. Hope this works for you.

I have a Ibm Thinkpad G40. It can´t read some discs but some discs it can read. It has a Toshiba DVD-rom SD C2612. Why can´t it read all discs? And how do I fix it?

Could be a lot of reasons
  • Disc's were corrupted during burning (CRC errors, etc) ---Can't fix
  • Could be a blue ray disc ---Get a blue ray player
  • Disc is damaged (scratches or smudges on the disc surface) --Clean smudges or get a disc repair kit for scratches
  • Optical drive could be flaking out (going bad) ---Replace the optical drive
Comment if you need additional assistance.

Disc says loading, then it stops and says no disc.

yes the reason is either the disc would have more scratch or the lens might have become weak... this is case for 99.9% for such prob

The dvd player says it is loading, but then

there are two solutions to that,
firstly open the dvd and check that the disc in side is turning round. if not check the servo control on the card. if it is turning then check the second solution.
secondly, check the senser bulb if its caming on when the disc is turning. this also can be replaced.
thanks finding from fixya.

When i load the dvd it states loaing but then after about 30 seconds states no disc. could it be that the laser is gone and can i get a new laser?

It is likely the laser is gone or the disc is really bad(scratches, smudges etc). New laser depends how old and part availability

DVD player will not play disc.

If you are loading a store bought DVD and that it what it say's. The transport needs to be replaced. roughly 150-200. If you are loading "burned" DVD's the format may be wrong and the unit cannot read it. Best suggestion I can give you is to first buy a "Laser Lens Cleaner" on that uses fluid. Any electronics store sells them for 15-20. Run it thru the unit a couple of times then try a clean, store bought DVD. If it plays, problem solved. With your DVD's, if you have any liquid car polish like mother's or meguiars, put a couple drops on the disc and spread around with your finger, let it set a couple then buff off with a microfiber towel. This works wonders for old scratched cd's and dvd's and helps protect new ones from getting scratched. As for the Lens cleaner, run it thru every product you have that uses discs 3 or 4 times a year, it's the best preventative maintance and only maintanance you can do on a CD player DVD or PC. Hope this helps

It cant read a dvd "no disc"

Check and make sure the laser eye is clean and clear of dust and smudges. With player OFF, blow across laser eye. Try cleaning with soft dry Qtip. Otherwise you probably have a bad laser drive or bad drive ribbon cable.
