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.

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

I have a problem regarding my D1816 dvd player


Put in an audio cd and see if it will play music. If it does, you may be able to get a dvd/cd cleaner and run it to clean off a possible dirty lens.

Loading...loading...loading...(10 minutes later)...no disc


I just fixed this problem. This will not fix any underlying problem, but it will get you up and running again. THIS MIGHT SCRATCH THE CD.
Unplug the unit. Remove the top cover. There are screws on the side and the back. Once you do you will see the dvd is not in correct position. Slide it around till you feel it drop into place. YES, YOU MAY END UP SCRATCHING THE CD. Plug the unit back in and it will eject.

For me the underlying problem is that the disc drawer closes while I am putting the cd in, causing it to not be seated properly. If anyone knows how to fix this .....
