You would have to open up the unit. Likely the "clicking" is it recentering the head attempting to read the disk.

Most likely you simply have a dirty lens (how old is the unit and how much use does it see?) which could be cleaned gently with a cotton swab and rubbing alcohol.

Dvd player in patriot turns off

If the DVD player is mounted in the dash, this is due to an interlock to avoid distracted drivers. If you tried to disable it, the unit will not work at all.

If this is a back-seat only unit, please add a comment with more information on the DVD player.

I hope this helps.

try clean the lens using only cotton buds no pressure just smoothly wipe, if it would turn ok then great... but still disame, try put vcd cd/ or cd audio only if one click it reads... then the lens has over heated or partially burn, need to replaced.

The system or DVD recorder turns off itself

It could be because your unit is overheating. Shutting itself off is your player's way of protecting itself. Causes can be form anything to direct exposure to sunlight, Something heavy is on top of the player, to disk speed being to fast.

Can't record DVD+RW and DVD+ Disks...PLUS

Firstly, you need to finalize the -R disk recorded by and in your unit before it will play back anywhere else.

Secondly, the DMR-ES10 does not support +RW, only -RW.

Finally, I have never heard of a +D. Do you mean +R? It is likely that you have a corrupt disk; change it.

Screen comes on, disk turns, loading starts, and doesnt stop

With the power turned off, open the DVD Player, and then open the top where you load the DVD into the player. Locate the laser lens and notice that the laser is attached to a transport assembly that moves the laser diagonally outward in a slot. 1. Slide this assembly outward to the end of its track. 2. Slide the assembly back inward to the closest inward position. 3. Repeat the process of sliding the assembly outward and then back inward.4. Put in a music CD and let it play all the way through. This helps to calibrate the laser head assembly movement. When the music CD is finished playing. 5. Put in a DVD, and you should have a working unit again This is a factory solution from Mintek that was given to a customer who ask for help with the forever loading disc problems. This solution may work on other models of portable DVD players. Most portable DVD players use this type of transport mechanism. Try this solution it might work for you.

Cyberhome Ch- DVD 300

Your advice was very helpful. After two+ months of tooling around and navigating around the menu blind I was on the brink of trashing it.

At first I tried the stop button with a dvd in the player with no success. After taking the dvd out, turning in off/on then pressing the stop button for 20 seconds the screen turned blue as said.

This help saved me a great amount of fustation.

Thank You!
