Why do you want to get to the lens? Do you think it`s dirty, if so, try buying a laser lens cleaner, It will be a lot simpler and safer than stripping the set down.
In answer to your original question, Yes, You do have to strip the set and then you`ve got to strip the DVD player because it is buried inside a metal can. Then you`ve got to clean the lens, put it all back together, Praying that the fault has been cured. Please buy a cleaner first, I used to repair these kinds of sets and they are a nightmare, and I`ve been down this road before and it really is an awkward job especially when you put it all back together and then find that the CD door isn`t properly located or a lead isn`t connecting properly or a lead broke as you removed it. I`ve been there, I`ve got the T shirt. Ian

Have a philips pet800 portable dvd player which won,t read dvd discs.the display shows the dvd loading then after a minute it stops and displays that there is no disc


The problem is the lens of your dvd. You will see the optical lens when you open the the dvd and put the disc. Cleaning the lens of the dvd, you must be very careful, never touch the lens with your hand,Use a cotton buds to wipe the the lens gently.

RCA RTD315 Theater System The DVD Player recently


My identical system has exactly the same problem as the one described by dipaola, above. When I insert a DVD, the DVD carriage pops back open after a few seconds. In fact, mine won't stay closed even without a DVD in it, as long as the system is set to play a DVD. I'd like an answer to the big Q - Is there anything I can do about this, or should I just find another DVD player to hook into the system?

DVD player is no longer playing DVDs. It says there's no DVD when I've tried numerous ones. TV is not that old.


Try cleaning your player by a dvd lens cleaner. Buy dvd lens cleaner that has a brush attached to it. if nothing happens you may open your player and clean the lens using a very fine small brush. the number one enemy of dvd players is dust. be careful not to touch the lens with your hands. If still nothing happens you may ask for a repairman to change the lens or buy a new one.

My LITEON 5045GDL+ dvd drawer wont open.


HI, you have two issue here. the load motor is malfunctioning. this is causing the door open and close feature to lock up. this motor is connected to the gear assembly. it should be replaced soon. the second issue is the optical lens assembly. this len assembly has failed. the laser is burned ut. this is causing the no play issue.

In conclusion, i recommend replacing the optical len assembly and the load motor as well. this will fix this issue. try not to force the door open often, this Will damage the loading dock gears.

Door will not open


I had a similar problem, I went back in and opened it up, took the top plate that covers the lens, opened the tray, put the plate back on, then closed the tray and it works again. With the tray closed, I think I put the top plate on the bottom piece and it was stuck on.

Try a lens cleaner, the laser may be dirty and need to be cleaned. The best way to do it is to buy a lens cleaning dvd:

Otherwise you can take a can of compressed air and spray it into the drive when the door is open, but that has just as much risk of putting more dirt on the lens as it does cleaning it off.
