Hi, had the same problem myself, turns out (after some investigation) that the motor that spins the dvd wasn't getting power. I carefully pulled out the smaller ribbon cable that goes to the small circuit board beneath the drive caddy, then pushed it back in. Put it back together, turned it on and off it went! Yay!

Hello there,

----

This problem can initially send users into a panic attack, because they naturally tend to assume that the drive must be the source of the problem. But in the vast majority of cases, it's the media that's not working properly. Remove the questionable disc from the drive and pop in another disc, preferably a factory-stamped disc such as an audio CD. If the drive reads the audio CD, you know the drive is working properly and the disc is the problem. The disc may be scratched, or perhaps you accidentally grabbed a blank CD-R instead of the recorded CD-R you meant to use. It happens to everybody.

If you know you're using a readable disc, clearly the drive is the source of the problem. It's possible that the drive's laser has become dirty to the point that it can't read the disc. Open the drive's caddy and spray into the drive with compressed air. The blast of air should blow away any dust buildup over the laser. Pop a disc into the drive and try to read it again.

If your drive still can't read any disc, even after you clean it, the drive may have a serious problem indeed. The drive's motor may not be working properly, or the laser in the read head assembly may be malfunctioning. In either case, it's probably best to simply replace the drive. Drives are so cheap now that replacing a broken drive is a more viable option than fixing it.


Yours truly,
Jack d.

Hello,

There are several reasons why your DVD player would stop reading discs.
1. Bad or dirty lens
2. Bad disc spinner motor
3. Busted capacitors on the mailboard

If you can open up your DVD player. Try to check for these problems.

I insert a disc. It loads, then either 1 or 2 shows in the display, but nothing functions and the disc will not play. It is a region 2 disc I tried


\usually when a disc won`t play ,it just displays "No Disc".

Is the disc matching the dvd code?
Is the region code correct?
Have you checked what discs the dvd will play, in front of manual.

If those are ok the dvd must have condensation in it.
Place in a warm room,turn on and leave for 2-3 hrs
Then try again fingers crossed for you.

Recording Length Not As Indicated


Hi. Yeah, RCA soutions are worthless. What happens is that the hard disk loses recording time while in use. Like a hard disk losing clusters on a computer and making them unusable. To get that recording time back, you will need to reset the unit. To do this, go to the main menu, press and hold the play and open buttons on the front pannel for about 7 seconds. This will reformat your hard disk. Keep in mind that reformating will erase all data. I have looked up and down for some type of firmware/software update and RCA support told me to disconnect the unit..press the power button 10 times and connect again!!???!?!? How silly. Hope this helps :)

Disk not recognized...loads, but doesn't succeed in playing disk, displaying "no disc" and stops disc spinning. What do I need to do to get the Mintek DVA 8700 to recognize discs. I've opened it to see if...


I had this same problem with my Apex AD-500W DVD Player. I decided since everyone said the player basically needed to be replaced it wouldn't hurt to go through the buttons on the remote just to try and figure it out......I DID!!!! I turned on my DVD Player, inserted a disc, turned on my tv and then hit the SYSTEM Button right below the power button until the screen said MULTI and the machine started working perfectly. There are 3 settings in that button, PAL which made my screen go crazy, NTSC ( i have no clue) and MULTI(this one made it work)! Hope it also works for all of you!!!

Device display now says "bad" and TV display says "Incorrect disc"


Sounds like the player has a dvd mech/picup problem, will probably require a repair that is more expensive than a new player, they are as low as $30 and personally I dont even try to repair my own, I just go buy a new one. There may have been some dirt on the disc that is blocking the laser if you want to try a cleaning disc I doubt it would hurt it anymore.

Unit will not start or load disc


Try opening up unit and using canned air and blow it out - sometimes simple dirt causes things like this While inside glance and see if you don't have some old tape or bits of labels that have come off and are anywhere inside that might be hanging the various working areas. Try using cd cleaning disk and vhs cleaning tape Without seeing this not sure what is causing it but may be something simple like the dust or pieces of label causing problems or the little rubber "tires" and other rubber components having gotten stretched out and slipping.
