Question about Durabrand Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Player reads DVD as bad

Some DVD's work, some do not. Brand new DVD even does not work. What happens is first I put the DVD into the player. The Display window on the DVD player will read as the DVD is loading. The DVD player will continue to try loading it for maybe a minute. Then the DVD player's display window will read "BAD".

SOURCE: Bad Disc

First determine where the problem lies. This can be done by analyzing what is happening. Is the disc spinning. Is it spinning erratically? If the disc is not spinning, the spin motor is probably defective. But sometimes you can be fooled, if the laser does not detect information of the disc, it will not issue a start spin motor command. If you can get the unit to work with the door open by defeating the switches,(Do not under any circumstances look directly into the laser)If you see the laser then the spin motor is bad, In either case the unit is is probably cheaper to replace than to repair.

SOURCE: My DVD player no longer plays original dvd's - only copied dvd's

some times when you create DVD movies by high speed DVD writers, your data cannot be read by dvd player with high performance. it s due to speed mismatching. always write DVDs with Normal speed in order to use with DVD players. while in case oof PC-DVD -Rom it does not happens. it can read any high speed wriiten DVDs. DVD-Rom in PC are more precise than DVD players. Some times Weak DVD player Lens system can also mis read.

SOURCE: dvd player doesn't recognize dvd's of any kind

jusguessin should call Toshiba quickly. The units have a 1 year warranty. Do not open the unit or it will void your warranty (I know, I do Toshiba warranty repairs on their recorders. If anything will make be void a warranty, it's a consumer who opens the unit and pokes around inside).

mooch, clean the laser head. I wish I could refer you to a FAQ because this is about the 10th time today I have written this.

Open the unit. Remove the DVD drive. Take the top off of the DVD drive. Clean the lense with a q-tip with a little windex on it. Work the head up and down gently. Reassemble and test. If problem presists, go buy a new one.

What you are describing is a bad/damaged optical unit in the player--some are sold but only as a complete unit.

Samsung DVD-V6800 combo wont read any DVD's


When you put disc in dvd player tray, optical laser got initialized automatically and all previous data in memory of player erased.
You should not worried about laser movement because its control by servo section of dvd player circuitry.
Kindly contact Samsung to provide warranty cover of your newly player.
Need further info, let me know please.

Our DVD player stops several time during a movie. This even happens on new movies. What can we do about this?


Tries websites like Amazon.com,Ebay.com buy a set that call a DVD or CD disc laser eye cleaner.Used it might help.If still happening than the laser eye itself it is dying and to be dead soon.DVD players that are having laser eyes are dying or don't read DVD or CD disc like say no disc all the time.Are not repairable except replaced the whole laser eye data's reader itself not practical,because u can a whole new basic DVD player just the same prices or even cheaper.These day a basic DVD players u can buy it like $40 brand new at any major box retailers stores like Walmart,Target..extra.

DVD goes in and tries to start twice then says "no disc". What do I do to fix it?


Just a couple of questions.

1.) How old is the DVD Player?
2.) What is the brand of DVD Player?
3.) Does it do this for all DVD's or a specific DVD?
4.) Has anything changed in the last week or so?

If the DVD player is less than a year old it most likely has a Manufacturer warranty. Also if you haven't tried already try putting another disk in the dvd player and see if it will read it. If it won't read another DVD try a CD.

Please clarify the above so that I may help you further.

Sorry this is happening I know it's frustrating.
