Ruined DVD Player?

My apartment had a leak (right overhead of my dvd player & Gamecube). I unplugged them, let them dry for two days (because there was about a cup of water in each). The Gamecube plays fine, but the DVD/Video player will not work properly. It has sound if I try to play a DVD or tape, but the picture is mostly black with small white images that roll across the screen. Is the DVD player a lost cause?

    I already contacted my renter's insurance, and the deductible is way too high... I guess I should count this as a loss then... But, thanks for your help!

Sorry that i couldn't give you any more help but maybe yo can try to ask some local dealers serviceshop if they have anything similar to a fair price.....preferably you talk to a "selling" technician instead of an salesperson and possibly they may consider to "trade in" your defect dvd...good luck...Ron

A dVD disc got stuck inside of the dvd player and now it won't work rightly then.


Well it might just be a little glitch with the dvd player to causse this problem so unplud the DVD
player from the wall outlit and let it stay unplugged for about 30 minutes to see if it fixed the problem and there is a small button on the rear of the dvd player that allows the disc's to pop out but you need a small flat head screwdriver to do that. Lastly if zero luck it will need to be repaired then. DOn't take it apart it could make thuings worse.

My dvd player is saying it cannot read the disc?


the lens in the dvd drive is most likely dirty, try a DVD lens cleaner or clean the lens yourself. Note that taking the dvd player apart to clean it will void the warranty.

Here is a video on the cleaning with a qtip - and alcohol, I've personally just used water / wet qtip to clean the lens.

.

use the other side of the qtip(wet) to clean the lens, and the other end(dry) to dry it.

if this doesn't solve the problem try a few other discs, if the problem remains the dvd player will need repair. the laser lens possibly has more difficult issues or something else in the player is failing.

Connect PS2 to Portable DVD Player?


I've done this before, i had to buy double female R.C.A. connectors (3) of them sold individually if I remember correctly, and then proceed to connect the 3 "male" ends from the PS2 cables to the 3 double "female" connectors i bought (best buy, meijer, radio shack, etc.) and then connect the 3 "male" ends of the R.C.A. cables that came supplied with my portable DVD player to the other end of the 3 "female" connectors, and finally connected the other end of the (DVD supplied) cable into the portable DVD player. hope this helps, and i apologize if it sounds a bit confusing, just trying to be as thorough (i have no idea if i spelled that right) as possible. Keep me posted if this helps!

Player is not reading disc


are the disks copys? are they badly scratched? if not you could try unplugging the player. take it apart and locate the lasor lens usually under a plastic plate held by two small screws? get a cotton bud and dip one end into isopropyl alchohol or meths and clean the lasor lens rubbing lightly in a circular motion then with the dry end of the bud wipe lightly the lens dry, put the set together and try a disk, if the above does not work a new lasor is needed,

Some dvd's won't play.


When you get a whirring sound, some click and disk not engaging, that is because lens cannot read the inital track on the CD/DVD.

This is either because disks are scratched , dirty or ruined by light and heath, or because the lens is dirty.

Try using a lens cleaner like the ones here.

If that does not work, then the unit must be taken apart and the lens cleaned with cotton buds and isopropyl alcohol.

Disney princess DVD player won't work at all anymore.


These DVD players are garbage. I bought one for my daughter and we've had nothing but problems with it. We finally hooked up another DVD player for her because I got tired of trying to make the dumb thing work. I haven't heard of anyone that's been happy with one of these players. Disney should refund everyone who has bought one of these there money back!

We were just wondering how difficult it is to install an overhead dvd player. WE called several installers and the dvd player installed is like 1200.00 and you can buy one for like 200-350.00. So if it...


I had an after market dvd overhead player installed by a friend. He first lowered the overhead liner. Then he hooked into the power connections from the overhead lights. He just spliced the wires straight into those lights. Then he drilled holes for the screws into the roof frame (not the roof itself), Then he cut a hole in the headliner and ran the powerlines to the actual dvd player. We hooked up the brackets and installed the dvd player. It took about 3 hours.
