Question about Philips DVD712AT DVD Player
The dvd player tries to read a dvd but then opens. I took the cover off and the led does not light. Is this an easy thing to fix?

SOURCE: how to fix a insagnia dvd player
Simply put. Don't ever purchase an Insignia product ever. I Have the same problem with a product I purchased just over 3 months ago, and the Insignia Customer service rep Sandra Larraburu gave no help to me other than the following solutions.
1. Make sure all the cables are plugged in right (Are you serious Sandra?)
2. Try a different DVD (I told her in my original email that I had even been trying different DVD players, so of course that was done)
3. UnPlug it (Is this a solution?)
4. Plug it back in (O....kay)
Then she proceeded to tell me that because the manufacturer's warranty had expired after 90 days, that I was entitled to no resolve.
Note Insignia states this "All of us here at Insignia strive to provide the best quality products
great customer care experience"
If that is the sign of a company striving, I've learned my lesson.
No Insignia for me again.

You purchase a dry DVD lens cleaner and put it inside the tray. It will clean it for you. If you take apart the drive to expose the lens, you are actually at risk of making it worse.

I had a similar problem with my Yamaha DVD player which just kept displaying "reading, reading and reading"- eject-no disc or disc error. I took it into be repaired and was told it needed a new optical lense-cost $120.00 plus fitting.I was told not viable to fix. Not convinced I had a look on the internet and a suggestion given was to buy a can of Air Spray from **** Smith,$14.00 later and blowing the proverbial out of the inside of the unit-Bingo it works for about an hour and then, away we go again-reading reading reading - eject-no disc. Back to the internet and i found a DVD technician who advised the more often than not the problem is a dirty optical lense, and he has saved 100's from the grave by the following method. The most effective way to clean it is with a cotton wool bud soaked in Isopropyl Alcohol and give it a good rub without damaging it. I got the Isopropyl alcohol for $12.00 a 250 ml bottle from the local chemist and did what was suggested. IT WORKED and is still going- not sure for how long but the bonus is I can use the remainder for rubbing down my tired old body, as after shave or a refresher, in addition to fixing DVD's so not all is lost. It's worth a try considering I was going to throw the Yamaha away. Thanks to the internet and the good people who share their knowledge I am happy again.
Hopefully it will work for you. If not, don't forget the other uses for the alcohol.
