Question about GoVideo DP8240 Portable DVD Player with Screen
Hi, I have a coby portable dvd player. lately when i put a disk in it says "wrong disc" i know for sure that this disk is ok, more over it says that to any other disc i put in. what can be the problem? Thanks, Keren wrong disc message keeps popping up. govideo out of business.tried cleaning disc and air gun. still getting "wrong disc" message.
Your problem is either the laser Diode has faulted OR perhaps the Lens is "Dirty" it can be cleaned with a special "Cleaning Disk" but I would think unfortunately that the laser assembly has gone faulty, a common problem unfortunately :(

SOURCE: dvd player will not read disk
have you tried getting a lense cleaner as they sometimes get alot of dust and will stop signal from disk to the laser if this dont solve the prolbem then you are looking at replacing the laser unit itself if the cleaning dont work and you think you are capable of taking the casing off make sure you switch it off first this should send the laser to the center of the laser tray if you take the case off and it is not in the center it might just be that it has got jammed now sometimes gently pushing it back to the middle will get it working again if it is already in the middle then it could be that the laser needs replacing but if not in middle push gently dont gerk it it should be quite stiff to push any way when you push back to middle try a disk with the casing off but please make sure you dont touch anything whislt it is plugged in if nothing works then it probably is the laser but before you do anything as soon as you get the case off switch it on and put a dvd in and make sure the disk is spinning if not laser unit is nakered and need replacing let me know how you get on hope this is some help to you

Open the dvd player up take a Q-tip dip it in alcohol clean the lenses . Then dry it off with a new dry Q-tip, put it back together start watching dvd's, Peter
