    Taran, the lenses on the Sony DVD portable was cleaned with alcohol, but no luck. You mentioned I will need another lense.Where would I take the player for repair? Also, do you have an estimate of the cost to replace the lense?

Have you tried to unplug and plug in the Device after few minutes, say 30 minutes?If not, try it.

It is quite a common problem with this model, you can try a clean on the lens,you can use a DVD cleaning kit which you can buy from Radio Shack or similar or you can clean manually.

To clean manually unplug from wall and leave two minutes.Remove cover identify the lens as a small round glass lens in the DVD tray assembly.Clean with the glass lens with a cotton bud or similar, use a small amount of isopropyl alcohol or do the clean dry, any other cleaning product could damage the unit.Remove any foreign objects in the unit.Reassemble and test

If no luck then you will need a new laser assembly I'm afraid.

    Thanks for your response!!

    It's not worth it as the Cost of ONLY lens would be around $100. ( Original ).

    Now, regarding Caps. Yes, it could be another Problem. When you Open the
    Player, you would see Caps like :-

    If you see, Cylindrical Type Components, all those are Caps. There might
    be chance that any one of these could be Leaked / Bulged / Swelled.
    Make sure that there is no Cold Solder Joint and there is no other
    Broken Component on the Board.

    If you find anything Swelled /
    Leaked / Bulged, you could De Solder and Re Solder the New Caps. The
    caps could be easily available in the Market. You could buy it Online or
    you could go to Radio Shack, Fry's.Make sure to Buy a Similar one. I
    have seen , if you buy a Low Quality Cap, it could again Swelled or
    Blown.Usually Bad Caps have Ammonia Kind of Odor.

    The Cost of Caps would be less than $20.

    I hope that the
    above information would be useful for you to Resolve the Problem.

    me know,if needed further assistance.

    Hope i helped you.

Not able to read any disc


If the problem happens with all or most of the disks, then it is usually a lens related fault.

Blu Ray player turns on, displays "Welcome on the screen. After disc is inserted, "Wait" appears on the the screen and then it freezes. What is wrong?

This sounds like your Sony player is not reading the disc.
I have bought faulty DVD discs before that have given this same fault!
- I assume you have tried a disc that you know works in another DVD player?
Remember, your Sony Blu-Ray should be able to play ALL REGIONS of standard format DVD discs, so you should get sound & images from any one you choose.

I put the disc in the player ithen tries to play then it says disc not valid .

Same here!!! We've only used it maybe 8 or 9 times. And it's been worthless for the past month because of it. It reads everything "no valid disk" and nothing will work. And I tried e-mailing customer support several times, with no luck.

Dvd player will not spin disk

Unfortunately, your DVD player is broken. Portable units like these often get bumped and jostled and the motor that spins the DVD quits (very small and fragile). Sorry, I wish there were a magic button.
