When I open the dvd lid, and I put the dvd in and close it, the screen still says its open and it wont do anything until the dvd lid is closed. Even though I close it, the player still thinks its open.


There is a mechanical switch that is operated by the lid as it's closed. Sometimes, a DVD player such as yours can be made to work by pressing down on the lid but this is a sure indication that something is wrong with the switch. It isn't practical to hold the lid down for the entire time you're viewing a movie so repair or replacement is the only solution

No disc is showing on screen when a movie dvd is inserted. There is no spinning.


If there's no spinning noise check that it is closing completely (lid usually makes contact with something inside to initiate loading).
Alternate possibilities - check battery may not be holding a charge, charger may be bad - also if player has a lot of miles on it the motor may have burned out

Says open on screen but door is closed and movie wont play


The switch that detects whether the door is open or not could be defective. You can locate the switch by the notch on the disk lid and where it inserts into the base. Try triggering the switch by pocking it with a paper clip while the lid is open. If it says that it is closed and the disc plays then the lid isn't closing securely. If it still says the lid is open after you can hear or feel the switch click then it may need to be replaced.

I have a Tru tech portable dvd player model no. 12701C, and i cant get the lid to close or the dvd player to read the disk i believe because it turns on and just says "Open" on the screen...the dvd inside...


Unfortunately, if the lid will not close properly, there is nothing you can do to fix that. Furthermore, if while holding the lid down the unit still shows "open" on the screen, the unit definitely needs to be repaired or exchanged. If you're in warranty, contact the manufacturer or the extended warranty company for the procedure you'll need to follow.

If you feel this solution doesn't deserve a good rating, please let me know why so that I may better assist you. If there is anything more I can do to help, I will!

Portable dvd player Film's stop and go back to loading screen


Not sure it's a solution, per se, but I discovered that my Matsui was acting as if I was opening and closing it, so I guessed that it was the lid. Once I put a paperweight on the "Press to Open" part of the lid, the DVD played through. I'm looking how to fix the lid but that's a workaround for now. Best of Luck - M
