Matsui PL618 LED failure

My Matsui PL618 will not play DVD's. I have cleaned the lens with a cd/dvd cleaner all it did play the audio. I notice that the LED will not illuminate and hence believe the LED or drice Cct is faulty. Does anyone know where I can repair this item in the UK?

I followed the example of one other user, but with an added step. These were: -

1) Turn the power off
2) Manually move the LED Laser to the outer edge of the unit, apply the power and depress the catch. the motoer moved the carriage forwrad but no LED illluminated.
3) I removed the case and checked the connectors, removing the ribbon cable at the carriage end and reseating it bakc in the connector. You need to be careful as alignment is difficult to get right.
4) Power up and check the LED laser.

In my case this worked fine.

Hope this helps

Check to see if the dvd is damaged or dirty, try cleaning it.

You can also try using a lens cleaner in the dvd player.
look for something like this

My CH - DVD 300 sticks a lot when playing. Otherwise it is fine. Do you think this is just the disk that needs cleaning or should we buy a DVD cleaner disk?


Hello,
how long have you been using this player? I suspect the laser (lens) of the player. I think the laser (lens) is weak that's why it cannot read data/files on DVD discs.
To confirm if actually its a laser problem, insert an Audio CD into the player and see if will play. If it plays, then obviously, your laser (lens) is weak. But if it doesn't play Audio CD, then it might still be the laser (lens) or a mechanism problem.
Get a lens cleaner, use it to clean the lens. If that doesn't solve the problem, get a screw driver, open the player's cover so that you can gain access to the lens, use a cotton board to clean the surface of the lens. This should clean dust or dirt that might be on the lens.
If non of the above solves the problem, then know that you need to replace the laser to a brand new one.
To replace the lens, remove the bad laser, use it as a sample to get exactly the same type and do the replacement. Note that replacing a laser (lens) needs a professional touch, so if you cannot replace the laser, get it to a repairman to fix it for you.
Once this us done, your player will play all DVD discs again.
Good luck.

Dvd will not play or load disc into play mode


Do you have a CD/DVD Lens Cleaner Disk ?

What the Problem may be, is that there maybe dust or a bit of dirt on your lens inside the DVD player.

So with a CD/DVD lens Cleaner it will clean the lens so that you can run DVD with no Problems

if this remedy does not help and if your set has still under warranty ,consult to service they may replace the LASER Reader EYE...most of the time Laser Eye malfunctions and does this..
if it is not under warranty ,never ,never have someone repaired it..go buy a new one,It will be cheaper.. ...

DVD plays audio but no video? The LG screens comes on but the screen goes dark and only the audio plays. I ran the disc cleaner.


NO NEED TO CLEAN LENS, YOU HAVE A MOTOR PROBLEM, IN THIS CASE YOU WILL BE ONLY ABLE TO PLAY AUDIO DISK AND NOT DVD. BECAUSE OF FREQUENTLY USED, DVD DISK MORE SPEED ROTATION THEN NORMAL CD, SO CHANGE YOUR MOTOR AND CHECK IT WILL WORK......
