Question about GPX PDL805 Portable DVD Player

1 Answer

GPX PDL805 When you load a dvd into the player, it takes about 1/8 of a spin and stops and continues to just sit there saying reading. I don't know a whole lot about dvd players, but I do know that it should spin in order to read. Is this problem fixable, cause if not, I know it is out of warranty.

Usually when a DVD stops spinning that indicates that the laser did not detect the disk.
Unfortunately, that also usually means that laser isn't working or may be dirty.
I would blow out the inside really good and also clean the laser lens lightly with a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol.

If it still doesn't work then it's probably time for a new one.

Trouble playing


Use an Iris cleaner to remove the dirt from the laser eye.

Hired disks are usually dirty and deposit muck on the reading eye over a oeriod of time. This needs too be regulkarly cleaned. That way you will have less of the unreadable errors

My GPX portable dvd player won't load discs. Can this be fixed?


Find the laser lens. It's a tiny glass circle inside a groove close to the disk spindle. GENTLY use a cotton swab to clean this lens. That's probably your only hope.

No valid DVD displays on my Toshiba SD-P1850


Most portable dvd players will not read burned dvd/cds. Please be sure to use originals in your dvd player. If you have a user's manual it should tell you if your player reads CDR's or DVD/RWs

Hi this is amanda i get a gpz PDL805. When I put a dvd in the player it loads for a while and than its stop and said to check disc, when i did. and its says the same thing i know it was working a week ago...


have you tried other dvds and cds?
If they work, the dvd you are trying to load is either scratched or dirty. Clean using a cotton, lint free cloth (no circular motion).

If they dont work, your lens is dirty. Use a lens cleaner CD.
put it in the dvd player and let it run until it stops by itself.
this should clean the lens.
