    How do I check it? Or replace it? Instructions say not to open the thing. Would getting joggled around in shipping cause this to happen or just old age?

Disc does not appear to load. When inserted in


If you have a disk that you know works, try it. Make sure the disk is not upside down.

It cant read a dvd "no disc"


Check and make sure the laser eye is clean and clear of dust and smudges. With player OFF, blow across laser eye. Try cleaning with soft dry Qtip. Otherwise you probably have a bad laser drive or bad drive ribbon cable.

Broken disk lid


Not sure if you can find a replacement lid but you may be able to play DVD's if you manually depress the small switch that the lid would engage if it were closed. The switch is located where the lid hinges at the right side, you should see a small rectangular hole. The switch can be depressed through that hole. Of cousre, your DVD will be spinning with no lid to protect it but just don't touch it while the disc is playing. When done playing, you can just turn the unit off or remove whatever you used to engage the small lid switch.

Dvd


ribbon cable issue found with this device. look inside at the white ribbon cable. The cable likes to bunch in bewtween the spinning hub and the eye assembly, after time it may even develope a rub spot that will shut you down for good. If the cable is bunched up, try pushing it back into the bottom of the device and try again.

Disc not spinning


It could depend on the type of media you're using. I noticed that certain types of self made dvd's don't play in this player.

Dvd doesn't load (spin)


try to clean the lens with soft dry cotton buds. do not put any cleaning liquid stuffs just clean soft cotton buds or swab. and if u have a microduster(compressed gas for cleaning data processing and electronic eqpt.) much better coz it removes dust accumulated inside the lens assembly. and if still the same, have it check by a qualified services technician.
