Rca8320 powers on vhs plays and record.dvd player not working

Check whether the DVD spins inside the mechanism after load. If it does not spins, repalce sled motor. if it spins and still not read any discs, the laser pickup unit is faulty, should be replaced with same type and number.

Emerson dual screen dvd player reads " bad disk"

Try using a CD lens cleaner and see if that helps resolve the issue. If not, it could be that the lens/laser has misaligned, and you will need to take the machine for servicing.

I purchased a toshiba portable dvd player and the disc is not spinning therefore reads no valid disc. I have put in a few discs still same reading? Any suggestions?

The Sled Motor is defective. this is the motor, whic spins the disc as it has been loaded properly. If the loader mechanism loads the disc properly into place and if the catch up magnet catches the disc in place, and still the dis do not spins, replace the sled motor. OK.

No disk message

Check it with a standard company burned disc. if it does not read it, make sure that either the disc does not spins inside, or the laser pickup unit is faulty. Just open the top cover of the set, and insert the disc, see whether it spins at high speed at first and then slows down. if the disc do not spind, the sled motor is faulty. If the disc spins, and still the player do not read disc, the laser pickup unit should be repalced.

Check its Sled Motor. Sled motor is one which get spins the disc we insert into it. If it is faulty, discs won't spin, and the set won't read anu discs, and will show no-disc display. OK.

My DRC6309 RCA portable DVD player will not play disc. It says "loading" and then says "no disc". I have tried different outlets and different discs. Any suggestions? Is there a...

Either your DVD players Laser Pickup Unit is dirty or defective or its 'sled' motor has damaged. Sled motor is one, which spins the disc inside. if it does not spins, the main system IC won't get any signal that the disc is "IN", and will show the messege "No Disc". The same will happen if the laser pickup unit is defective or dirty. Insert a Head Cleaning Disc into the system, and play it for atleast 3 times. If there is any dirt or dust, this will solve your DVD's problem. If not, it should be serviced by any skilled technician. It is not a user reparable item, as you have to take out its loading mechanism completly out of it for repair. OK.

There are two fault possibilities for this problem. Both are not user reapairable. The first one is of 'sled' motor. Sled motor is one that spins the DVD disc inside the DVD mechanism. If it fails to rotate the disc, the laser reading assembly cant get any signal from the inserted disc and will show "Reading" display on the front panel for a long time, and finally stops. The second one is of Laser Pickup Unit Assembly itself. If it has got damaged, there will be no laser beam to scan the DVD inserted, and the same thing as described above will occur. In both cases the final displauy will be "Open". To replace both items, you have to take its mechanism fully outside and to disassemble it. It is really a skilled work. It is best for you to get it repaired by any experienced service technician you know very well, or get it repaired by any authorised service centers. OK.

The vcr works however my dvd player just shows the disk spinning in the corner when I play it. I guess the disk is not being read. What could be the problem? Thanks.

Usually the laser lens is dirty, or the laser or focusing mechanism is not working. Very rarely, the spindle mechanism is the problem (not spinning because of motor failure or improper engagement of the spindle hub with the disk). In some players, the spindle motor does not start until the optical system signals that it is able to read the disk. This is not necessarily correlated to the spinning disk symbol on the display.
