Re: will not play

I have fixed this player by happenstance,costing nothing but a little time. Removing the bottom plate of the player exposes the driving mechanism that moves the laser along its glide, This player would not scan the width of the disc, There is a plastic rack gear driven by a small motor.The rack is spring loaded and can be depressed in order to move the laser along its glide without the motor running.
With a disc in the player, the bottom off and machine turned on, depress plastic rack and move the laser to the other end of its travel and watch for the drive motor to go crazy trying to put the laser where it thinks it should be. You can move the laser freely to any spot you wish back and forth making sure the drive motor responds. Then let go and it should start working. I think gummy bearings in the motor were at fault.Also the laser itself could be a problem if there is no beam working. It uses a HOP 1200 W laser pickup unit which can be obtained at Donberg Electronics in Ireland. One final thought. The bottom plate is held on by seven screws, one of which is longer than the rest. It must go in the hole it came out of because it anchors something inside the machine. GOOD LUCK !!!

Dvd player will not load disk and play?

From your description it is hard to tell if the problem is from the disk or the player. Can you try another disk? If that loads and plays the problem is with the previous disk you tried to load. If there is a problem with the DVD player, it will be cheaper to buy a new one than try to repair. You can even find DVD players at some of the resale shops for under $10. Good luck.

Will noat load. message i get is cannot play

either the disk is dirty, or the lens on the optical pickup is. you can get a cleaner disk from any electronics store. if you don't hear the disk spin, you may have to replace the whole optical pickup (lens, laser, and motor assembly).

Logik lpd850 port' dvd returns to load disk after a minute or so

push down the button to open the lid, keep it pressed down. right next to it it a tiny button that detects whether the lid is shut. tape a little piece of folded paper onto it and then it thinks the lid is always shut. it just means you have to switch it off to remove the CD

Check that there are no finger marks or scretaches on he disk. Clean the disk as well as the Iris in the player ( use special cleaniung disk)
Often some disks may even play on a computer when they dont on a DVD player.

Won't play any disk, says "bad disk" after being stuck on "loading"

You have a dirty / defective laser , motor or cable. Only when opened can the problem really be diagnosed.

Screen says loading and after a while, says disk error.Then eject

hi try first to insert a clean up CD, and test your DVD player with an original DVD, if the problem persist , your laser sense is defficient you have to go to fix it to a specialist.
