Daewoo DV-6T955B VHS/DVD player problem

The player does not start when a DVD disc is inserted. I can give the disc a spin with my finger and it will sometimes start that way. But it's very unreliable.

    It was helpful to the extent that the motor starts on its own. At the beginning of playing a DVD the music is choppy then things seem to even out and it plays for 15 minutes or so and then the video will start and stop. Each time it stops there is an audible rubbing noise and sometimes I can actually see the disc slow down. The WD40 did not seem to help as much as a tiny drop of oil worked down the shaft of the motor. Are there sources for the motor? And if so is it an expensive part to buy?

    The player was given to me because it would not play DVD and they thought I might be able to fix it. I do have a bit technical/mechanical/electronic expertise and usually the problem is finding parts rather than fixing something although the tinier components are harder to repair or replace.

    The rubbing sound comes on after 15 minutes or so so I would rule out something being warped. Before I applied the WD40 and oil it would make the rubbing sound in the first minute or so of starting playing.

    Thanks. I knew it was a cheaper VHS/DVR player when it was given to me. I saw it as a challenge to learn something new, not something that I really needed. I hate to see something junked that could be fixed. But I am ready to give up.

It's likely the spindle motor needs to be replaced. You can sometimes get a bit more mileage out of them by placing a tiny drop of WD40 down onto the shaft below the table and working that into the motor.

    There are sources for just about every part in that unit. That said, it's probably cheap enough to simply replace the unit with something a bit more better built.

    The rubbing could be the laser alignment, warp in the play table assembly or railing or any number of possibilities... In any of these events you would need some technical equipment and expertise to repair it and the repair itself is again probably not worth it in terms of cost verses replacement.

    As a point of reference: when DVD's combos first became popular the repairs would consist of anything from power supply to pick-up table replacements. After about 7 years the cheaper ones hit the market and repairs were more focused at components vs electro-mechanical - cost being the issue. Now it's likely that if they are more than 2 years old and/or inexpensive to begin with they're not likely worth the repair.

    Bill, as I said it could be a number of things and don't rule-out warping.. The spindle, which is the disc platform that the DVD rides on can tilt or become off-balanced or even slide down further on the spindle shaft causing these problems. We call that warping... Not so noticeable at start-up since the disc is read from the inside out. But as the pick-up table (laser) starts to get further from the center in can begin to rub on the disc itself or on the tray. This is only an example and one of many probablities. Rails are another. We've seen units in here that have had loose rails allowing the pick-up table to rise as it reads further into the disc and eventually make contact with the disc.

    My point is that the people who gave you the unit probably had the right idea - replacement was probably less expensive than repair. That is not a really high-end unit you have there.

Open the top again but use a Q-tip with alcohol and clean the laser. Make sure the dvd is spinning too because it could also be a bad motor.

Daewoo DV-6T955B DVD Player Problem

If your DVD is less than a year old, still under manufacturers warranty.
The problem you have "no Disk" is because the laser is not reading the DVDs.
