What dvd laser lens cleaner should I use for my Samsung p241 dvd/cd player?

You can use any branded DVD-lens cleaner. I recommend Sony. It is just like a normal DVD except that brushes will pop out to clean the lens when you play it. After the cleaning is complete the sample video file on the DVD will be played indicating that it has been cleaned. Otherwise clean again.

RCA RTD315 Theater System The DVD Player recently

My identical system has exactly the same problem as the one described by dipaola, above. When I insert a DVD, the DVD carriage pops back open after a few seconds. In fact, mine won't stay closed even without a DVD in it, as long as the system is set to play a DVD. I'd like an answer to the big Q - Is there anything I can do about this, or should I just find another DVD player to hook into the system?

I have a Toshiba DVD Video Player Model SD 260. I

Hello, The problem could be dirt on the surface of the lens, you can clean this by removing the cover of the dvd player . Gently use a dry cotton bud to clean the lens because the lens is fragile. Insert the disc plate into the dvd player and press play, if it does not play try the second method. Ensure the cover of the player is open, connect the power plug to the mains socket and observe the lens if it beam a red light, Also check the ribbon cable use to connect the lens to the printed circuit board, then gently clean the lens with a dry cotton bud , insert the disc plate and press play to see if it play. If it does not play the disc, then this require a change of the lens

Proscan dvd player

the manual may be available in some of these following website....

just open your dvd player with the door ejected and then just clean the dust particles and obstacles in the door way and especially clean the lens... use only dry clothes for cleaning ... after that just give a try..

if problem persists or if you are afraid of opening it or if you dont have any idea about it then contact the near by technician and tell your problem...
he will clean the lens with the white petrol or spirit...
then your problem will be solved ...
he will not charge much for cleaning lens he may charge 100 bugs or 150 bugs that s all ...
and if there is any other problem just like the lens is out something like that he may charge more...
