Re: Emerson PDE-2717 portable DVD won't read disc

I believe it is related to power as this issue started on one of these after turning on both screens. i am still dealing with millenium 3000 over a purchase of the same unit. i am going to be trying a 4th unit 'when new stock arrives' but i doubt it.

Won't complete the load disc process

Loading may mean it is not seeing the disc---A dirty or bad optical pickup is possible if you get this error with every disc.

The dvd player will not read the disc

If it won't read any disc you put in, consider getting a new DVD player, the eye is most likely gone bad. If it is only one disc that you can't read i would suggest a Scotch DVD Cleaner kit. Cleans and Repairs discs, helps prevent skipping and mistracking, and repairs minor surface scratches improving disc audio and image quality.

No longer loading dvds

You may have a bad laser. First, make sure the laser assy. travels back and forth easily, then make sure the table the disc sits on spins freely. If it still isn't reading, load a disc and immediatly flip it over to it's top and see if it works. Working or not, still a bad laser.

My portable dvd player is not working good

It sounds like U have a bad lens. Try a lens cleaner. If it is the lens, it wont read anymore discs. Sometimes it will also make a clicking sound and show disc error/no disc cryptic messages on the screen.

Emerson PDE-2717 Portable DVD Player - worked great for a few months but now just says 'Bad Disc' even when using discs that work in other players.

I had same problem, took the back cover off. two scews that are right were the ribbon connects to the read head I believe are potentiometers adjusted with eyeglass screw driver a couple attempts it worked. I also disconnected the plug for external battery and left unpluged since I don't use battery

How can i fix my portable dvd player?

that noise sounds like the focus is trying to see the disc as it has to focus to see or register there's a disc. Maybe the turntable slipped down a little or there's dirt or film on the lens. Good luck
