Question about Venturer 3.6" Portable DVD Player
I have a Venturer PVS 1262 that won't play movies at all. I can put a DVD in and it sounds like it trying to start....starts spinning, but then nothing- it's gives me a read error of no disc. So I tried to "clean" it with a DVD cleaning disc but it still doesn't work. Anyone got any ideas or suggestions? Or is it just dead?
The problem you have seems similar to mine. I found the ribbon cable came off on the under side of the motor. This involves disassembling the player. You will see one side goes into the track laser and the other goes into the motor. Be careful with the ribbon cable it is very thin. I found it easier if you remove the cable from the under cover. It is held on with two way tape. The cable will slide back in with no problem, just make sure the lock tabs are open. They are rectangle in shape. hope this helps you

I had the same problem with my dvd player and there is a small button near the latch that holds the door down if you find a way to get that down further that might fix your problem it did for mine

I had the same problem so i took the bottom off and found that the strap wire from the optic eye to the board was undone they use a quick connect that should help you out

I found with my machine (same as above model) that my kid had loosened the main wheel that the dvd attaches to. during figuring it out being 6 yrs old he moved the eye mechanism back to far so that when a dvd was put in it would not spin. I took apart the case seeing the little switch that the mechanism hits when closest to the wheel. Realizing how this worked, I slid tightly forward the mechanism hearing a few teeth slip till it bottomed forwards making contact to start the motor assy spin up routine. NOW there are some tiny washers underneath this wheel also.. SO, the height of the dvd to the eye is mechanism is severly critical... humm what to do without washers? Dr. Pepper 20oz soda with a small 3/32 drill along with a hole punch ;) worked like a charm now leaving me with 4 washers plastic and one factory steel washer.... I placed washers in to get the height set correct inserting washers one by one while testing a dvd, till the dvd played. Then taking super glue to lock the wheel back into place. ...hope this works for some other people just be realigning the eye mechanism to spin up the dvd in the first place. Kids do odd things at times, and I hate to toss away my money if you catch my drift! ;) ~ BlkSmth

I found the motor not working due to one of the leads to the motor was broken just where it inters the motor case. I disassembled the motor and replaced the wire and it is now working. IT IS NOT A FIX FOR THE CONSUMER.

Yes I do know what wrong with your Portable dvd player. The motor is dead. I'm trying to find out where I can buy a new motor.
