SOURCE: portable durabrand dvd wont read disc

If it is reading a burned movie from the internet make sure you set you brun software for captability mode.

If this is a orginal disk make sure its free of dust and scratches.

1. buy a lens cleaning kit from walmart or any other eletronics store.
2. Make sure the disc is free of scratches.
3. change disc's and see if it works on any others.

if these steps do not help then the laser would need to be replaced. Durabrand is a Wal mart brand i had mine for 2 years and i had to clean the lens 3 times with a cleaning kit.

SOURCE: No valid disc message displayed. Disc is spinning.

When a DVD player starts doing that, it either needs to be cleaned, or something is going wrong with the DVD mechanism inside of it. You can purchase DVD lens cleaner from any large retail store that has an electronics section. However, if you clean it and the problem persists, it will likely be cheaper to replace the unit rather than trying to have it repaired unless you're under warranty in which case any repair or exchange will be covered by said warranty. If you call the manufacturer they will give you your full range of options.

SOURCE: my Toshiba portable dvd player says no Valid Disc

If the units under warranty you may want to contact Toshiba as it sounds your unit is in need of a replacement laser assembly.
If the unit isnt under warranty, Toshiba should be able to supply the parts you need and as long as you mark every thing that you remove, as to know where it goes when re-assembling the unit. The lasers arent difficult to replace. Good luck.

"No disc" error

This means that the lens of your dvd player is having a hard time reading the discs. It could be dirty. You need to run a disc cleaner to run into your player for like 30 seconds. It it does not solve the problem. You might need to clean the lens manually. Open the casing and unscrew the plastice plate covering the lens. Then get a q tip damped in an alcohol. Gently wipe on the lens' surface and let it dry. Return everything back and play those discs again.

I put the disc in the player ithen tries to play then it says disc not valid .

Same here!!! We've only used it maybe 8 or 9 times. And it's been worthless for the past month because of it. It reads everything "no valid disk" and nothing will work. And I tried e-mailing customer support several times, with no luck.

No Valid Disc

Try this out; Go to your DVD player's settings/setup menu, find the "Disc Lock", set it to "off" if it is already set to "on"
