SOURCE: dvd not loading

The general amateur fix, and one with surprisingly high success rates is to brush dust accumulated on the laser lens. This is assuming you get this with all disks, otherwise better not risk opening it. Plug it out, open the screws, open it up, if necessary remove another board covering the lens, and gently brush the dust off. Assemble back and hopefully you're solved. Anything else is for the lab(motor, lens assembly, focusing problems etc) Good luck

Try cleaning the lasers lens with an anti static cleaning wipe. I used " nice'n clean" that I had purchased from Walmart to clean my laptop screen. My dvd player started back playing after gently wiping the laser lens.

First check and see what is happening inside. Take something small and stick n the lock mech, which is the hold that a small part of you top to the player sticks in to tell the unit that it is closed. See if the lense light up and moves up and down and also see if it moves forward a bit and back to start position. If player does not do any of this then with fingers move lense down line abit to see if anything is obstruting path. You can move all the way down then place DVD in and try again

Radio shack carries a universal kit with choices of many different voltage and milliamp combination. Bring your DVD player to them, and they can help find the one that best suits you.

NO DISK when disk is in. Initial DVD Player Model:IDM-9520


Chances are the Laser that reads the disc has gone bad. It's usually cheaper to buy a new one instead of having it repaired.

Hope it was the non-acetone type of polish remover - acetone will melt plastic !!

Invest in a laser eye cleaning disk - the kind with the tiny brushes.

OK what type of file format are the files in on the disk you are tying to play?

IDM-1731 does not like .AVIs.

Check your documentation as to what type of files your player can actually read and play.

Sorry I'm not more help.
