Question about Curtis DVD8017 Portable DVD Player
It says loading, loading, loading, while spinning... but then says no disc. How can I tell if the laser is faulty? what does "too low on caps" mean (as said in Solution)? Bought at garage sale, powered up okay, screen is fine, I get a Settings menu just fine, but should've played a CD in it first... :o( Now, I'm just determined to make it work.
If the laser is faulty should I just trash it?
Never heard of powered up on caps. But first try using and IRIS cleaner to remove dirt and dust from the laser eye. The disk has a brush embedded in it and is just run like a normal disk. It sweeps the dirt fromm the eye and then SHOULD be able to see it really does have a disk.

Please try to put in an ordinary audio CD track and see if this is detected. If yes the optical is working, if not there is no laser scanning and the possibility of the head being faulty is high.
Certain cleaner disks may not work but the best is to cleaning manually the laser head eye with a cotton bud, very gently and without pressing of the lens eye.
If there is still no result then watch the CD if it spins or tries to spin. If the head unit moves up or down to focus or in and out of the drive, if so the board seems to work correctly and the possibility that the optical head unit is the suspected fault.
