Trouble Loading & Not Registering To TV

For about a week my DVD player had trouble loading the DVD. It would take a good 2-3 minutes to finally load it. About 3 days ago it started having trouble connecting with my TV. I would turn the DVD player on but the screen for the DVD player wouldn't pop up, I would just have a black screen on my TV. After turning the DVD player on and off about 3-4 times it would finally pop up but then turn off after about 30 seconds. After turning it on another 3-4 times I was able to put in the DVD and watch a movie but after I took that movie out, turned off the player for about 24 hours and tried to watch another one my DVD player will not work at all. I turn it on by physically pushing the button on the DVD player and it will not register to my TV.

I can't say 100% but it sounds similar to the problem I had with the same model . The sleep mode in the on/off switch had gone bad and a new switch fixed the problem. It was about $42 to rtepair at my local electronics repair shop. Hope this helps.

I have the 1513-tdxb polaroid tv dvd combo. the dvd wont load. ive changed the batteries in the remote, but it still wont work.


1. Purchase or borrow a lens cleaner disc and try it first. You can find these things really cheap at any large department store. They usually get the job done well. However, you may need to clean the lens manually if the store-bought cleaner fails.

2. Remove the outer casing of the DVD player. Remove the screws that mount the top casing onto the bottom of the DVD player and slide the top casing off. This will expose the DVD deck, which houses the laser pickup lens.

3. Find the lens. The lens will be glass and under the DVD clamp. The lens will probably have a blue tint to it. If you are having trouble finding the lens, you could shine a light on the components and watch for the reflection.

4. Use a cotton swab and some isopropyl alcohol to gently wipe the lens. Just a quick scrub will do. Dry the laser pickup lens with the other end of the swab.

5. Give the lens a few seconds to dry and replace the covering of the DVD player. Test the efficiency of the player. If necessary, repeat the process.


Let me know if this doesn't work and we can try other options to get it working.


Thank you for using Fixya and Good luck.

Samsung blu ray player, dvd drawer will not open


Either the loading belt or loading gear wheels have the trouble. Sometimes the disc loading mechanism might need replacement. It won't cost mor for the mechanism. But will feel some difficulty in getting it from open electronic spare part market. it will be best to contact the authorised service center for Samsung to get it repaired.

DVD NOT RECEIVING DVD DISCS


Hello
The loading mechanism has the trouble. The inserted CD or DVD does not engage into the laser assembly unit properly. It may be due some fault with its loading motor or loading belt. Check these.

Open-cloesh problems


Hello
Check its loading belt and loading motor. If loading belt get loose or loading motor has low pulling power [due to trouble with its carbon brushes inside it], this type of problem will occur. There is a gear wheel assembly inside it which draws in and pushes out the tray mechanism. If any of these wheels gets broken, the mechanism won't work properly, even if the loading motor and loading belt is right. If so, replace the loading mechanism. It won't cost more, and can be bought from most of the electronic spare part shops at your town. OK.

Open & close disc doesn't work. It is open not but I can't close it. Looks like both open and close don't work.


Hello
There are three possibilities for this trouble with this DVD player. The first one is imprper loading function due to loading motor or loading belt trouble. If loading motor is weak [that is its pulling power has gone low] the tray will not close properly into the mechanism, and will not touch the load sensor switch fitted inside the mechanism. If this happens, the main system control IC will detect improper loading and will turn the tray out again to load it properly. Just try to close it without a disc inside the tray, and check whether it closes well. If it does so, or the trouble repeats, change the loading belt first. In most cases, this will retify this type of trouble.
The second one is, bad 'Sled' motor. sled motor is one, which spins the disc inside the mechanism. After proper loading, if the disc do not spin inside it, again the system control IC will sense it, and will eject the tray. The sled motor also is a replacable part.
The third one is, damaged gear wheel in the loading gear section. to detect and repair any of above trouble, you have to open your DVD player, and take the DVD mechanism out of it, and is somewhat semi-skilled work indeed. Check these first. If you want anymore assistance from me, feel free to get be by fixya. If you are somewhat skilled, and have confidence and can follow the diagrams, send your email address to me by FixYa. I'll send the service manual of your DVD player by return mail. All details and disassemblng procedure are in it. OK

I cant finalize my DVD recordings on my magnavox recorder.


Try this. In your SETUP options, ensure that AUTO FINALIZE and FINALIZE AT END OF TIMER are turned OFF.

Insert DVD to be finalized. Quickly press SETUP button. Be patient while DVD loads. (You will not see the "loading" bar on your TV screen. You will instead be mesmerized by the SETUP options!)

Once DVD has loaded the DISK FINALIZE option will be available. You can then FINALIZE.

I found it cheaper to get DVD-R from Radio Shack (about $5 for 25) for VHS movies that I know I want to keep. They do record up to 6 hours, even though the packaging is unclear on this point. Picture quality is as good as the expensive DVD's.
