If all discs say this, and you have tried cleaning the laser eye and the TRV Base (where the disc is held in the middle) and still get the same result, most likely your diode has gone out in your laser optical pickup. The optical pickup will most likely need replaced if the part is available.

I'm trying to watch a movie on my coby portable DVD player and every time I try and watch a movie it just says invalid disc and it makes weird sounds.


If there is no TS-Folder showing in a computer then it is not a DVD Disc. The disc could be badly scratched, ie the noise. There are many theories and one I've heard but not try is putting nail polish over the disc the freezing overnight, defrost then wipe outward a from the centre. The DVD player may be out align then should be looked at or possibly cheaper to buy a new player. Hope the info was useful, good luck ;)

Won't play new blue ray disk


Will your machine play standard movie DVD discs? if it does then the laser pickup assembly is the problem. The blue ray discs require a higher precision tracking to offer better resolution.

Unable to read mkv and avi video files from usb drive on philips dvp5990 dvd player


what error does it give? mine reads avis fine, as long as theyre within resolution limits. same for windows media format. couldnt get the mkv files to work though. the usb drive has to be formatted fat32, ntfs does not seem to work. burning these files to dvd as a data disc is another option. lets you fit 10+ hours of video on the disc vs your standard 2 or 4 hour max limits.

Try to play a disc and the player says ''bad disc''


Have you tried unplugging the DVD player and letting it sit for a couple of minutes? If that doesn't work try holding the power button as you unplug/plug the machine.

-bad disc reports


The problem with using rental discs is that they are dirty. Buy a dvd player cleaning disc and follow the instructions. These discs help to realign the laser. If this does not help try cleaning the disc with a disc cleaner. Also depending on how new the dvd is there have been a lot of discs manufactured outside of the US that have been bad. It may not be your machine but the discs. I personally went through 6 of the same movie before i gave up and rented something else that worked perfectly fine. Hope this helps you watch.

Your computer sees your iPod as another disc drive. When you sync check you have not got "enable for disc use" checked on the summary page. If it wont sync movies right click on it and select "convert selection for iPod", make sure you have selected the movie on the movie tab (or select "All Movies")
