Faulty GCE5006DVDK Portable DVD player - Message "Wrong Disc"

I have a GCE5006DVDK in car DVD player which it seems has gone faulty. When I try to play a DVD after some moments, I receive a message "Wrong Disc".
I am living at Cork in Ireland. Do you know if there is a repair facility for this type of unit in Ireland or where I could get it repaired in UK ?

    My GCE5006DVD will play discs with JPEG files and audio discs but won't play dvds. It starts loading then displays "wrong disc". Phoned Goodmans and they suggested cleaning the lens which I have done, but this hasn't made any difference. Had the machine a couple of years but have only used it a few times.

    I have the GDVD62WLCD portable player, it will play CDs but with a DVD it spins up then says 'wrong disc'. It's about 3 years old and had reasonable but not heavy use.

I had the same problem I used a camera brush and a burst of air which seemed to do the trick. It is working now, seems it was the DVD lens, thanks.

Try a CD or SVCD if this works the problem lies with the DVD optical lense.

Why will my CD's not play on my Wave music system?

it might be you need to get a cleaning disc that cleans the laser inside the cd drive.
or it could be the laser it self has gone faulty.
try a cleaning disc first and see how you get on.

My portable dvd says "wrong disc"

Your problem is either the laser Diode has faulted OR perhaps the Lens is "Dirty" it can be cleaned with a special "Cleaning Disk" but I would think unfortunately that the laser assembly has gone faulty, a common problem unfortunately :(

DVD disc is not recognised

itsmylife70, hello.

Two things, Laser gone low and can't read dvd. Just try cleaning the collimating lens with a cotton swab and glass cleaner. gently wet one end and dry residue with the other end.
The other thing is could be just a mutilated loom (flex) cable connecting the laser from the main pcb board. Laser is most likely gone bad.

Good luck.
