Reads cds but won't read dvds

This unit was working fine, then one day it started not reading dvds. the dvd's spin, stop, and the display reads ERROR. i tried different ones to make sure it wasn't the disc. i opened the unit up, took a Q-tip and lightly cleaned the lens. this did not fix the problem. is it possible that moisture got underneath the lens? do you have any suggestions how to fix this? i really like this unit.

    The unit was in the middle of a DVD and just started skipping, I checked it and the DVD was clean without scratches, I put it back in and it played for a few more minutes and then stopped all together, now the unit will only play Audio CD and no DVD is recognized from the set I have played in it before.

    I tried cleaning the unit with a commercial cleaner that had the small brushes on it as well as taking it apart and checking all the movement and connections, I can not find anything really our of place.

    When reassembled the unit again will now only play CD and no DVD discs.

DVD unit doesn't read CDs but works fine with DVDs


Sir: Did you try another CD or just 1 CD could not read by your DVD RW? Would you please make the DVD poped out and re-set it again. It seems the problem of communication becasue the code rate of DVD and CD is different. Its not related with the lens.

Problem with portable dvd player


i would return the item to your retailer as it should hold a 12 month warranty, as if it cannot read cds or dvd, the lens is faulty, and trying to repair it yourself will void your warranty. Please dont forget your ratings are important, thank you
