Dvds dont work

My portable dvd player does not recognize dvd's. It will play cd's and regular disks that have movie footage on them that arent dvds but when you put in a dvd it either says loading and then stops by itself or it says error no disk. Do you think there is somthing i can change to make it work or an inner problem that has to get fixed by an expert?

Re: dvds dont work

Have you tried a cleaning disk and make sure the movie disks have no finger prints on them that will stop it from loading.

Problem with Mintek MDP-1810 Portable DVD Player that will play movie DVDs but not computer burned video DVD

The problem I think is with the burner on your pc. Try re burning on another program like Nero and pay attention to the options. It will ask you if you wish to play disc in all types of players.

Dvd player only plays some movies

it might be sevral reasons:
1. Check if region code is the same for movies you playing and DVD player
2. If you using video CDs or copyed DVDs, player might be preventing to playback those kind of discs, due to copyright laws or due to different speed settings for DVD player and discks you using (for intsrance you player can playback DVD/CD+R, and you using DVD/CD-R, or mximum allowed playback speed is 16 you using disk recorded at 24, but this is in case you using burned/copied CD/DVDs)
3. Check it lens is durty. For that use CD/DVD lens cleaning disk
($6 in Walmart, if you are in US)
4. Check if movies you are have the same coloring system, i.e NTSC for US
5. Check CD/DVD for scratches, some DVD players can not playback scratched disks
Please kindly let me know if my information was helpfull for you or you need more info
Good Luck

I have a portable dvd player model number mdp1030 the unit keeps saying no disk I have tried numerous disks same results.

then i think the lens is not able to read the disk.

and so i would suggest you to buy a disk cleaner CD and run it in your DVD player and then use your regular disks.

if this is not working then it is some internal fault in your DVD players lens.

The part that reads the DVDs is defective. I would suggest to try cleaning it using a lens cleaner, hopefully that works.
If the cleaning does not work, it might just be cheaper to buy a new one instead of repairing this one.

No picture, only sounds when playing DVD


The issue might be that you could be missing some codes to play the dvds.

First i want to uninstall all the codecs from the control panel - add/remove programs.

Then download the latest vesion of klite codec pack with the player.

The link is :

Install this by selecting "lots of stuff" with the player.

Then play your DVD, it will work fine.

Good Luck.

My Insignia 8" Portable dvd player does not detect dvd!

Try playing a regular CD first and take it out if it played. Then put the DVD and it will play fine because the player just realign its lense. Hope it will help

Portable dvd player will play music cds but not video dvds

Chances are, your DVD player uses one laser to read CDs, and a different laser to read DVDs (since Cds and DVDs are read at different wavelenghts of light). If the DVDs you're trying to watch work properly in other DVD players, it probably means that the DVD laser is dirty, damaged, or burned out. Though you can try cleaning the laser (use Google for suggestions on how to do this, or check the Audiovox website), you will most likely have to get the DVD player repaired, or buy a replacement. Many of the newer CD/DVD players sold today use a single combination laser, which reads both CDs and DVDs, which means that when the laser fails, it will not work at all. Wish I had better news for you, but I guess that the only consolation you have is that your Audivox player still works with CDs...

Portable dvd doesnt play movies

Try cleaning the lasers lens with an anti static cleaning wipe. I used " nice'n clean" that I had purchased from Walmart to clean my laptop screen. My dvd player started back playing after gently wiping the laser lens.
