    When I try to load a disc I get NO DISC. I removed the cover and tried loading again, and again NO DISC, and noticed the disc is not spinning. I don't know for certain that it's supposed to, I'm only assuming that it is. I checked voltage across the drive motor, no voltage. Good continuity from drive motor to plug on circuit board.

The spindle motor magnets have started to flake, causing the DVD's to slip. like on a slip mat. You need to take the cover off and remove the flaky magnetic particles on the magnets that clamp onto the DVD's. You can put a very light coat of rubber cement on the lower magnet and let it dry completely, this should give the lower magnet/spindle motor some traction on the disc and get it spooling up in the correct amount of time.

SOURCE: dvd keeps saying loading but won't play

Sounds very much like you have a either a dirty laser, or a laser unit failure. Put a cleaning disc through the machine, and see if it improves. If not, then you need to either have a new laser fitted, or a new machine.

SOURCE: It won't read disc. After loading, it reads No Disc

Sounds like a read error fault , possibly a laser malfunction sometimes dirt on the lens will cause this try a good CD cleaner if this is no good I suggest a free engineers estimate at least you can then ask again on here how to fix it . My honnest guess is either a duff laser or software corruption . I have known seating of the tray to cause this also not returning fully back into machine , usually caused by children and alien matter ? shall we say such as choclate or M&MS kids shove stuff everywhere ? bless them lol
hope this helps Regards Vortash

Ixhave amemorex dvd player recived from friend keeps reading wrong disc or loading for long periods

If a DVD has been cloned the speed and angle of the laser may not be compatible with the players read head. If you are using Commercial DVD's then the alignment is standard and should work OK. If the player is CD\DVD only you cannot play Blu-ray discs.

Loaded dvd and now it won't play and it won't open/close

Hi i have had a similar problem to this before. I never could get it open without force, but if it is only the disc you are after then i would recommend forcefully removing the disc with a knife opening the dvd slot or by unplugging everything and unscrewing the dvd player altogether there might be something lodged in the dvd player preventing it from reading or opening. Be sure to press the power button when you unplug as it may contain electricity still.

If there is nothing on the disc, it will read, "no disc". It will only read and/or identify discs with media loaded or burned onto it. Your unit is a player, not a DVD+R (recorder). Can record VHS, but not discs.

Dvd wont load up.. keeps sayin no disc


The most common reason for the DVD not reading discs is a bad drive. The following website sells the drives and does installs:

This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your DVD plate, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your DVD including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your DVD on your TV Combo going again!
Hope this help...

Wrong disc problem

This is a known problem - there is no fix - if you call coby customer service they will tell you to try a dvd lens cleaner -this will not fix the problem. Best advise - throw it away.

After loading every disc displayes "wrong disc'

are they bootleg dvd's? if not try getting a lense cleaner because wrong disc means it's reading your dvd's as .mov files which only play on quicktime in a computer. if it reads your cleaner as wrong disk too then get yourself a refund cuz it has a motherboard malfunction.
