+ Try to fix your DVD player yourself before you hire someone else to. Many problems can be solved yourself, and many repairs are expensive. Many times it is cheaper just to purchase a new DVD player than to pay for repairs to an old one.
+ Try using a different DVD. It is possible that the DVD is faulty and the problem is not with the DVD player at all.
+ Do not touch the DVD player's lens with your finger. Try to clean it with a dry cotton ball or microfiber cloth. Using your fingers could leave fingerprints on the lens.

  1. Try to clean the disc if the DVD player says "No Disc." The disc might be simply be too dirty for the lens to read.
  2. Check your DVD picture settings if the screen seems squished or unbalanced. If your DVD player is set up for a widescreen movie and you are playing a movie with regular dimensions (or vice versa), the DVD player will squash or stretch the picture.
  3. Manually eject a DVD if your DVD player's DVD tray gets stuck closed. Gently insert a safety pin or paperclip into the DVD player's Eject hole, and the DVD player will open and eject the DVD.
  4. Clean your DVD player with a cleaning disc if your picture keeps freezing in the middle of a movie. Cleaning discs may be purchased anywhere that DVD players are sold. If this doesn't work, you may need to pay for a professional cleaning.
  5. Check the battery if your portable DVD player will not power on. It may simply be that the battery is dead or low. Try plugging your portable DVD player into a wall socket and see if it plays there. If so, try a new battery.
  6. Consult the store where you purchased your DVD player. They might have some troubleshooting techniques they can share with you.
  7. Check the manufacturer's Web site for your brand of portable DVD player. Most sites will have a troubleshooting section, and most questions have been asked before
Good luck.

Dvd player for my car


DVD head units have one extra wire in their wiring harnesses, compared to a standard CD head unit. On my Jensen, it's a peach-colored wire, and is the activation wire for the DVD feature. During the installation, the instructions call for this wire to be tapped into the emergency brake indicator light wire. The reason is this:

The e-brake indicator light is what is called a "ground complete" circuit. That means that the bulb always has power applied, but when you pull the brake, that puts a ground to the wire and completes the circuit, allowing it to illuminate. The head unit sees this ground, and activates the DVD player.

In my Jensen unit, I simply ran this wire to a ground (I used a screw near the fuse box), and I put a switch on the wire, so I could break the ground contact at will. Jensen calls for a procedure to activate DVD playback. In their instructions, they tell you to select DVD from the option menu, and when the "lawyer screen" comes up (the one warning you to park before you watch a movie), you release the e-brake for 3-5 seconds, and then reapply it. To simulate that with the switch I used, I leave the switch closed (activated), and select DVD. Then I flip the switch "off" for 3-5 seconds, and flip it back "on". This tricks the head unit into thinking I put the e-brake off for a few seconds and then put it back on, and the movie will start. Then I can drive away.

Basically, ground the wire that is used for DVD activation, and put a switch inline on it. Then you can break and reapply the ground in whatever manner is required by the manufacturer of your head unit. If there is no off/on sequence with yours, as there is with mine, simply ground the wire to a screw inside the dashboard and you're done.

There should be an emergency eject button, look in your instructions that came with it to locate it. Also check you book for the suitable DVD's for your machine. Or go to the panasonic web site

Open message when closed/disc wont spin


I figured it out, it was the little plastic sensor stick that tells the unit that the lid is closed therefore reading the disc. cheap piece of plastic that has surely snapped on many a unit. good luck replacing it. i rigged it though problem solved

Disc won't load


Hi, I had the same problem with my PMD-100NT. I found that there was a motor inside that, I think, was moving the laser head was skipping and the head was not moving into position. I hooked a portable to the external jacks and I am just using it as a monitor. I am quietseas4john@yahoo.com if you have any questions.
