Question about Philips Magnavox MWR20V6 DVD Recorder/VCR

I'm not at home

Not at home right now so I can't check the spindle motor. When it "locked up" there was a DVD in the tray but I have since removed it.

My PORTABLE. DVD MAKES NOISES PHILLIP


There are 2 possible causes. Either the bearings for the spindle motor, or the tracking mechanism for the laser. It depends on when you're hearing the noise. If the noise is heard continuously then the spindle motor bearings may simply be dirty. If this device has hinged lid to allow the loading of your discs; then open it and remove any loaded disc. In the middle is where the spindle motor is mounted, and the locking mechanism that holds them into place. One small drop of lightweight household oil such as what you'd use to lubricate an electric shaving device would be all it takes right into the spindle top where you press with your finger to unlock your loaded discs. Put in a drop and spin it with your finger.
Next, look into open space of the chassis where the laser is mounted. Use a cotton swab or small brush to remove any dust or grime from way screw and guide shafts. Look at the plastic gears for broken teeth. There will be ribbon style electric cable connector; make sure that a loop of it isn't sticking up into the area of the disc tray...if it is, carefully reposition it.

DVD trays out - Panasonic SA-PM39D


there are very tricky mechanical devices that detect when the trays are closed and in what position they are in
A gear or mechanical piece is not in correct order or not functioning properly and will need intense studying to determine which position they all should be in at door closed , laser mech. position , standby position
can you upload a photo of the inside of the cd mechanism?

DVD PLAYER REPAIR (NO DISC ERROR)


Before you attempt to repair your DVD Player yourself, make sure that you have necessary tools and test instruments like philips screw drivers, multimeter, soldering iron, soldering lead, soldering pump, etc...

This is a DVD/MIDI Player with a "no disc error" upon loading any disc that played before...
Watch this VIDEO
First I've loaded it with disc and observe the movement of the optical lens and the spindle motor. First thing I've noticed that the spindle motor didn't oscillate upon spinning and it's spin slowly unlike the normal RPM...
I've suspected the spindle motor was already bad but still to be confirm...

Unscrew the disc holder plate from the assembly to keep away the magnet touching the spindle motor, this may affect the reading and spinning of the motor upon testing with the multimeter.

jdvillanueva_30.jpg

This is how it looks like after removing the disc plate holder in the assembly. Spindle motor is secured with 2 small screws in the lens assembly.
Pull-out the connectors from the main board to see the underside of the tray.

jdvillanueva_31.jpg

You may test the spindle motor with your multimeter set in resistance measurement (ohms X1) even connected to the small board.
Bad motor will read either less than 5ohms(shorted winding) or infinity (open winding) and will not spin.
Good motor will read more than 50 ohms(depends the size) and will spin upon testing. Watch this VIDEO.

jdvillanueva_32.jpg

jdvillanueva_33.jpg

Onced you've confirmed that the motor was already faulty, unscrew it from the lens assembly.

jdvillanueva_34.jpg

Replaced the spindle motor with new one. Before you install the new motor make sure that the clearance of the disc holder is the same as the old one. Compare first the clearance because if it is to high the optical lens will not read the disc same if it is to low....

After replacing the motor re-insert all the connectors to the main board.
I've load same disc which does not read a while ago and observe what will happen. Observe the disc and the sound oscillation from the spindle motor in this VIDEO.

Hope that the above information, pictures, and video will help you fixing your DVD player yourself.
Thanks for visiting Fixya.
Have a nice day!

Problems with you DVDR 3380 not finding your DVD


As this recorder get older and with frequent use it will sometimes not be able to spin the DVD if it can't do this the play head will just move up and down until the DVD starts to spin. If it doesn't start then you will receive the error UNKNOWN DISC. You will no that this is the error you have as you will hear the DVD player clunking every 2 seconds as the head tries to read the DVD.

This actually means the a drive motor is not able to overcome the spindle and DVD weight combined it really does need a new motor fitting.

8cc320c.jpg

If you can't afford a new player remove the top drill a small hole about the size of pen top just above the white spindle top (drill anywhere SHOWN IN RED) and replace the top,now when the DVD player has trouble give it a nudge with a plastic pen top I use a biro lid and this will tease the spindle to start moving just enough to overcome the inertia

NOTE: this is a temporary fix but it really does work and if you think that this is a bit drastic then look underneath there is a 1/2 " slotted hole near the front that is the manual release from the tray if it gets stuck and they put this in and its been there probably without you even knowing.!!

My disc tray won't open the lights turn on and work but the disc tray just won't open. How can I fix this?


hi,
You have to check two things.
1. You have to check the tray loading belt in the mechanism. To see the same you should remove the mechanism.because the loading belt is beneath the cd tray. As it is cyberhome it will be very difficult to remove the mechanism for an user. if your capable for doing the same then make try. Because you have to remove the top cover then the back panel, then the mechanism. Take care the mother board is attached to the mechanism.

2. You have to check the cyberhome dvd player will show this type of complaint if the Spindle motor is faulty (oppen or short ). Spindle motor is one on which the cd rotates. It will not cost a lot.
ok

I have a philips hts6510 home theatre system and when i put a dvd in to play it says no disc


hi,
Normally a dvd player shows the message NO DISC when,
1. The disc inserted is bad.
2 The lase pickup unit inside the dvd lost its reading intensity, dirty lens or the spindle motor damaged .

In your case the second one happened. the intensity of the laser pickup unit has lost or the spindle motor faulty or there is some dust on its lens. just insert a cleaning cd in it for two or three times. then check again is the DVD is reading or not

if the problem remains then you have to check the motor and the laser pickup unit. the lase pickup unit have two laser emitter and receiver in its inside . one for reading and playing DVDs and the other for CD and MP3. also the spindle motor runs in different speed when u insert dvd and cd.

Open the cover of your dvd player and power it on insert an audio cd and watch is it reading or not also notice the speed of the spindling of the cd. if the audio cd reads and play. then the possible problem is the spindle motor

To conform it remove the audio cd and insert a dvd. watch the rotation of the dvd. if it feel very hard to rotate it then, the spindle motor is damaged. if so replace the spindle motor if it runs more the the speed of than audio cd then the laser pickup unit is faulty. Then u have to replace the laser pickup unit.
if you need any further assistance from me , feel free to contact me through fixya.
ok

The disc has appeared to stop rotating. The info window continously says "reading".


DVD/CD Read/Write process: 1. The tray or carriage places the disc into the spindle or motor. 2. The spindle motor locks into place to prepare motor to spin - the disc is in free space and does not touch anything except the spindle motor. 3. The laser assembly moves into home position and attempts to focus on the disc by emitting infrared light to disc. 4. If a disc is present, the light should reflect back to the laser lens as the lens attempts to focus on the light - you will notice the lens moving up and down to focus. The lens should NOT touch anything. 5. Upon a successful focus, the spindle motor spins. 6. Data is read and sent to a buffer for decoding. 7. Success.

My rca rs 1289 5- cd changer mini system will not play, open, close, or change cds. how can i fix this problem at home?


Remove the case screws on the left and right side panels. Pay attention to the long screws that come out of the middle of the panels to make sure they get back in the right spot. Remove one screw from the top rear back panel. Lift side panels of in a hinged motion from the bottom. Remove the top panel in a hinged motion from the rear. In the center of the disc tray remove 1 screw from center. Note the orientation of the tray for re-insertion. Lift the tray up and out. look for small dc motor and spindle. this motor is used to spin the tray. You should find a black belt2_bing.gif between motor and spindle. Make sure it is in good condition. Look to the right rear of the unit. there is a second motor and belt which drives the tray. This belt may be broken or off its spindle. repair or replace the belt as necessary. Plug the unit in and test the open/close function and ensure the gear train, belts2_bing.gif and carriage move smoothly. reassemble.
