Question about Durabrand PDV-705 Portable DVD Player

1 Answer

DVD does not start playing

When I insert the DVD into the player, the disk spins with the screen reading "loading". The motor seems to cut off and start spinning again until it finally shuts off altogether. I have tried multiple disks with the same results. I had sent this in for the same thing last summer and it was fixed. Now Lenoxx 800 number is no longer available. Any ideas on the solution?

    I took mine apart and found it to have a bunch of dog hair inside from a large golden retreiver. I used some compressed air to blow out the components and it is currently working.

My Funai WV805 DVD player quit playing DVDs


Hello
If the DVD do not spins inside the playere, this type of fault can occur. Open the top cover of the player and insert a dvd. See whether it spins inside or not. If not, replace the motor that spins the disc inside. This motor is known as Sled motor.
If disc spins inide and the player do not read or play it, replace the Laser Pickup Unit. It is faulty.

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?


Hello
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.

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.

Error reading any dvd disks


Have you tried a DVD+/-RW ?

The noises that you are hearing will be the spindle motor trying to spin the DVD as the lifting presentation tray for the read/write head has not located, if the media is not spinning this will never be able to read the lead in on any DVD as it has not presented the disc in the correct place.

If is is out of guarantee then I suggest that you check to see if the DVD is spinning by removing the top cover with the power OFF then eject the tray and try to load the media a small touch of the DVD in the clockwise motion should cause the media to start spinning, this is for diagnosis only if this is the case then the spindle motor will need changing

I insert disk but it doesn't load. It says no disk.


The disc won't start spinning until the player senses the disc is there. If the lens on the laser inside that reads the disc is very dirty, it can cause this problem. You might try cleaning the lens with a cotton swab moistened with lens cleaner or isopropyl alcohol.

May be dirty lens get a cleaning disc for cd player and insert to clean then try player again. If you can take cover off insert disc see if disc spins,if not spinning you need a motor drive.

Dvd player will not spin disk


Unfortunately, your DVD player is broken. Portable units like these often get bumped and jostled and the motor that spins the DVD quits (very small and fragile). Sorry, I wish there were a magic button.

Cd's are ok but no dvd's...


Had similar problem. Found the disk was not rotating. Adjusted the torque on the hold down screws of the drive unit allowed the disk to spin. Still had some motor noise, but DVD would load.

Portable DVD player not spinning says no disc


Check to see if the disc is spinning. You can do this by one of two ways either
  • a:) Listen for the disc to spin after inserting it or
  • b:) Place disk in drive right way up (so that the label is not upside down). Load the disc and eject the disc again to se if the disc has moved i.e. the writing may now be upside down.
If the disc does not spin then it is likely that there is something wrong with the disc motor. If it does spin then the issue is more likely to be with the laser unit. Try cleaning the lens but if this doesn't help it's likely to be a more serious and ultimately more expensive problem.

Hope this helps

Dvd not loading


The general amateur fix, and one with surprisingly high success rates is to brush dust accumulated on the laser lens. This is assuming you get this with all disks, otherwise better not risk opening it. Plug it out, open the screws, open it up, if necessary remove another board covering the lens, and gently brush the dust off. Assemble back and hopefully you're solved. Anything else is for the lab(motor, lens assembly, focusing problems etc) Good luck
