Have a few dvd players with problems. one will not
eject until the power cord is pulled, and when it does work half the time the
power just kicks right back off, or the movie freezes in mid frame.
have another one that reads no disc, no matter
what. at first we could try it a few times (open and close it) and it would
work after a few trys.
x box says unable to read even with brand new

Re: dvd, fix it or pitch it?
No these are legitamate questions, the one that wont eject is probably out of timing someone could have pushed the door closed instead of pushing the button a lot of people dont realize this can harm a player what you would have to do to fix this is open it with the power off then plug it in and let the power close it that will normally fix that problem. the one that reads no disk listen and feel for it to spin the disk when turned on if the disk dont spin it wont work let me know what it does or doesnt do. the x box could be a lot of things but listen for disk to spin in it also and get back with me some might be fixable some might not.due to cost

The DVD player unit have a power switch that have cold soldering circuitries joints,u have tools like soldering iron and roll of solder also can do basic soldering work?Yes.Take the unit aparts and do resoldering work to the power switch.If u can't do soldering work and don't have tools,just replaced the DVD player unit,buy a new one.It cheap these day.The new one only will cost u like $40 brand new,not worth it,if u require hiring a repair shop to do the work for the unit.
First, start with power cycling the player. Turn off the player and disconnect the power cord from the wall socket. Leave it unplug for about 5 minutes. Turn the player back on and try to open the drawer.
If same problem occur, then follow the steps below:
1. Turn off your DVD player. You do not want to risk electrical shock while working with it.
2. Locate your DVD player's manual Eject button. It is usually a small hole located underneath the DVD drawer.
3. Insert a stiff wire-such as a paperclip or safety pin-into the hole. Push gently and the drawer should open partway. Gently pull the drawer the rest of the way open.
4. Remove the DVD and see if there is a problem with it. Most DVD player drawers get stuck when a DVD is warped or the label is starting to peel. If the DVD is warped, discard it. If the label is peeling, remove the label.
5. Turn your DVD player back on. If it gets stuck again on a different DVD, then the problem may be with your DVD player rather than with your DVDs.
I had the same problem and searched FIX and found a solution for a Phillips DVD player that worked on my Sony DAV-FC7 dvd player. Someone posted that they called their Phillips Tech Service and was told to (a) unplug the dvd unit from the wall and wait 20 seconds,then (b) press the standby+plug the unit back into the wall at the same time and hold for 10 seconds. I did this for my Sony DAV-FC7 which would not power on nor eject (just red light on). IT WORKED!! after doing these steps, my SONY powered on and the rented DVD ejected. The dvd palyer works again. Thanks fellow FIXYA "posters".
Bad caps in the power supply is causing this. C17 (10v,470uf), C17,c14 (10v,1000uf) and C18 (10v,470uf). Replace with same capacitance values but 25 volt rating 85 C. Just fixed mine half hour ago works great.
