    We bought a 2003 Lincoln towncar with the navigation system. My uncle did not check out the navigation when he bought the car. When we checked it, it kept giving the "wrong disc" error. It is the dedicated dvd player just for the navigation system. The audio is another 6 disc cd player in dash. Would the same solution apply for this case? If so, could you give me some tip on removing the dvd player from the car to check? Anything I need to pay attention to so that I won't make the matter worst? thank you very much for your help!

I have seen this problem on several Yamada & Xoro brand DVD players. If you remove the lid after powering down with the disc tray closed and a disc in it you may well find the ribbon cable to the read head is rubbing on the disc. The ribbon cable is held to the base of the box by a sticky pad under a 45 degree bend in it and a piece of sticky tape !!!. Power up unit, open disk tray, power it down, retape cable to base securely with small strips of duct or gaffer tape (using tweezers helps) and hey presto it will work again. The cable rubbing slows the disk spin speed hence "data read error" unit assumes "bad/faulty/wrong type of disk". All that technology screwed up by using a cheap bit of tape in the factory assembly, amazing eh !.

You may need to clean the laser in the unit. You can purchase a cleaning disk at Radio Shack or Best Buy. They are normally less than $20.

Its defective. Coby doesn't repair the units. The lense is off balance which is causing the laser to not read the dvd/cd.

Problem


I have also had the misfortune of owning one of these substandard pieces of trash. I corrected my wrong disc error by manually moving the laser towards the center. The laser seems to jump off track and gets stuck on the outer edge for some reason. I'm still battling a software issue that keeps reverting to the set-up screen.

COBY TF-DVD7060 SAYING WRONG DISC


In Remote Control:
1) Press SETUP
2) Press Fwd (»)
3) Press Rwd («)
4) Press Fast Forward (»|)
5) Press Fast Rewind (|«)
Original region number (1 to 6) will appear - uses arrow keys (Navegation) to change to 255 (ALL Regions).
A couple notes:
- The keys referred to in the above hack are on the remote control (not on the front panel). But, if you want, you can use the front panel to implement the hack – just use the key equivalents (i.e., for SETUP, press Mode twice; for », press and hold »| for 2 seconds, and so on ).
- When the Region Number appears, it is in the upper right corner of the Set Up window without any label. In other words, if your player is currently set up for Region 1, look for the number 1 to appear in the upper-right corner of the Set Up screen (once you've pressed the correct sequence of fast forward and reverse keys). Then use the arrow keys to toggle the number to 255.
If you remove the main battery, you might have to do the trick again.
Enjoy.
