Question about Durabrand DVD-1002 DVD Player

DVD doesn't spin

The spinning mechanism on this DVD player stopped working last night. But I don't see any issues save for the piece that holds the DVD's seems different. I can't really describe how, except for the small circular piece on the very top of it seems scratchy, but I didn't pay enough attention to it before so I don't know weather or not it's actually any different than it was before.

    Same problem. Checked +/- 12 Vdc reads 8.5Vdc I don't think thats enought for the 12 volt motor the +/- 5vdc is correct. But a drawing on the power supply would be nice.

    DVD motor not spinning enough to get the disc to be recognized. Cleaned parts that I could. It is dead. I guess made in China should be a warning now as I have found a similar issue with a CD player that had its motor go out as well.

The spindle motor could be burned out. If so, it's not worth repairing unless you could find on ebay an equivalent unit and change the part yourself.

The disc starts to spin then stops?

If the player is not able to spin the disk up to full speed in X amount of time the default is to shut down.
So most likely you need a new player.
But first try unplugging the power to the player for one minute to reset it then plug it back in. & give it a try.
next it might be getting to hot maybe dust buildup at vents or placed on top or too close to something that makes heat.
Again unplug & let it get to room temp maybe over night then try it again.
Lastly you could try a lens cleaning disk. Maybe the lens can't read the disk & this is causing it to stop trying & stop spinning. This is a long shot as if it's a read fault it should display that message.

When loading a dvd it displays, "NO DISK". Is it

There are mainly three motors for most of the DVD players. One to spin the disc we insert in, other to load the laser pickup unit to-and-fro inside it to read the disc and an other one to load the tray mechanism 'in-out'. According to your description, the disc spins inside, and you can hear its spin. So motor which spins the disc has no trouble at all I should say. Then comes to the second motor that moves the laser assembly inside it. If it do not work, the laser pickup unit won't move and no reading will take place and 'No Disc' display will be the result. The last chance is with Laser Pickup Unit itself. Just get this unit repaired by any well experienced service technician or by the authorised service center, because, there are special tools to open this unit. As it is a compactable one, more care should be given to it while repairing. Suspect the second motor I described earlier, and the Laser Pickup Unit. OK.

I load the CD put I don't hear it spinning at all

No it isn't, because your switch isn't tripping when you close the DVD. Try holding the lid down with your hand and listen for spin. If your DVD starts spinning you will need to locate the plastic pin protruding from your lid and extend it with superglue and a piece of cardboard. This will make up for the warp in your lid, and allow the switch to close.
