Autofocus problem with 70-300mm is usm


Probably needs a new ribbon cable in the lens. This flexible cable maintains the contact as the lens is zoomed in and out. If it is still under warranty take it back to B&H for a simple repair.

How to change defective motor of portable DVD Player


jdvillanueva.jpg
This portable dvd player always says "no disc" everytime the disc's load.
I've checked it and found the faulty parts. The spindle motor that spin the disc.

Here's the step diagnosing the faulty motor.

1. Open the bottom cover of the portable dvd where the lens assembly is located together with the motor.

2.Pull-out the disc holder of the motor using the flat screw driver, you will see the small screw securing the motor from the assembly.

3. Unsrew the motor from the assembly.
4. Using the multitester set it at ohmmeter (X1) then test the motor.
Good Motor - reads fairly high resistance and it will spin.
Bad Motor - reads low resistance and it will not spin.
This test is also applicable at any DVD player.
5. After you confirmed that the motor was faulty then replace it with the new one and your unit will get back to normal again.
Upon installing the new motor, you have to consider the clearance of the spindle motor disc holder. Improper clearance will affect the reading of the optical lens. (check the clearance from the original motor)


jdvillanueva_3.jpg
Aside from the motor the most common problem also with no disc error is the FF:

Dirty Lens - this is prone to dust and any fine foreign objects that will block the optical lens from reading, gentle clean it with a soft cotton buds.

Lens ribbon - check the ribbon connected to the lens from the main board for scratch,damage. Once it has an open line then of course the lens can't read the disc. Also try to erase the lead/contact with pencil eraser.

Hint : Almost 50% of my related dvd problem I've encountered with no disc error are caused by defective motor/ribbon, lens covered with dust. So you have an idea, try it to save some money sending your unit at the repair shop.
Good Luck.

Hope my tips may help you.

3. remove the 3 remaining exterior screws. carefully with a small flat tip screwdriver pry the plastic halves slowly. eventually they will come apart. 4. at the bottom remove the small ribbon cable. 5. disconnect the mini motor wire, black and red. 6. unscrew the motor drive for the lens cover and then open the lens. 7. purchase a new lens cover motor. 8. If your screen still says turn off , then press menu and delete some files. good luck ! Work Slowly and carefully and ground your hands to a pipe somewhere before working on the unit. the static electricity could ruin the circuits !

Found a new ribbon, put new batteries in the small compartment under type wheel housing. The ribbon won't advance. What am I missing?


The ribbon feed motors Gum up and don't move. Sprat some WD40 on the motor bearings. The motor is located just below the ribbon deck on the right.

Hi Lisa,

Your no disc error can be a DIY like the following steps.
You need to accompany with guy knowledgeable in basic electronics.

Assuming that the disc is good.
1.Clean the lens. - Sometimes because of dust the lens can't read any disc. Try clean the lens by soft cotton buds. Be careful while doing this.

I've suspect that you have a dirty lens, below are just for your guide.
2.Replace the ribbon - Check the ribbon connected to the lens from the main board for scratch, damage. Once it has an open line then of course the lens can't read the disc. Also try to erase the contact by pencil eraser. If you've done the steps above and the symptoms still there then the next step requires you a little knowledge in soldering technique and reading the ohmmeter.
3.Check the motor - Check the motor that spin the disc with an ohmmeter. You can test it using the ohmmeter (x1) even it is connected on the lens assembly.Good motor - reading should be fairly high and it will spin. Bad motor- reading will drop to low resistance and will not spin.
Hint : 50% of my repaired unit the above parts are commonly caused of the problem.
If you confirmed that you have a defective motor then replace it with a new one. Before replacing the new motor you have to check the clearance of the disc holder with the old one. The clearance should be the same as the old because if not the lens will not read the disc if it is too far or too close.
Ifyou already cleaned the lens, and confirmed that the ribbon is good as well as the motor then I've advice you to send it to repair shop because the next step should be done with an expert because it is quite technical diagnosing the fault between the pick-up lens and the main board.

Give a thumbs up if you find it useful.
Have a nice day!

Kodak screen shows error#41


That error means that you have a lens motor error. there is a way to fix it but you need a precession screw driver. Be careful when doing this and only attempt if you are confident you can pull it of. Open up the camera and find the BROWN RIBBON CABLE that runs from the lens to the edge of the camera case. Then you will see a small philips screw that is in the middle of the ribbon cable, remove it. Right under the philips screw under the BROWN RIBBON CABLE you will see a SMALL THIN METAL SLIDE RESISTOR. now move the lens to the OUTERMOST POSITION then attach the slide resistor and the ribbon cable back exactly how there were reassemble the camera and you are good to go.

Lens jammed


The lens needs to be removed.  The camera case can be taken apart by using a small philips screw driver and a small flat head. Take the batteries out. Have a nice flat space to lay the screws out.  Pry out the little chrome piece with the UL sticker on it. (Carefully use the flat head). Start somewhere you will remember and begin to remove the screws going clockwise around the camera.  There is a screw under the rubber flap of the "3X" chrome cover.  The top of that must be pryed out and lifted up to remove. Take the back cover off. Lift out the top of the LCD screen and remove the 4 screws that hold it in. Start a new row of removed screws. The LCD ribbon can be removed by popping the white plastic clasp up. Next remove the menu pad ribbon from the board by lightly tugging on it. You should be able to remove the front cover by lifting it up to unhook it from the top power button strip. There are 2 screws that hold the top power strip in place. There is also a plastic hook on the front side. There are 6 screws holdong the board to the frame. A different size screw is located underneath the power strip ribbon. Loosen the 2 screws holding the flash.  THe white ribbon will be the flash ribbon and the gold one next to it will be the lens ribbon. NOTICE the lens ribbon must pass under the flash.  The side with the lens will have a small board that pushes into the main board.  To seperate it, gently pry it apart with a small flathead. There is a hidden screw for the board at the top where the end of the battery compartment. It needs to be removed before the board will come out. Once the board is out, there are three screws holding the lens in the case (they are black screws, not the chrome ones)  Once they are removed, the lense will fall out. There are 3 black screws holding the largest motor on the lens.  They are above the text "Sony Lens" remove those and the gears of the lense will be able to move freely. Twist the base to get the lense unstuck.

Dropped the camera, shutter won't closed, focus keep moving in and out, message "please turn off camera and turn on again"


This recently happened to me and I too got a hefty quote from the company since mine was no longer under warranty. I figured since it was trash anyways, I might as well take it apart and see if I could figure out what was broken. After removing all of the screws and removing the top pin strip from the board (there is a piece of tape on it) and flipping the lens part away from the board, I was able to remove the small gear compartment on the side of the lens housing (held on by one small screw) and the 3 screws on the back of the lens and carefully flip out the digital camera part and push the lens back into it's original closed position. I then carefully reinserted the digital part back into the lens making sure everything was nice and flush and closed it back up. Works like new :D However, if you're nervous about digital machines, I wouldn't reccomend doing this. Luckily for me when my camera fell it simply knocked the digital lens out from the housing and it didn't pop back in right afterwards, causing the lens to not be able to turn completely like it should. If yours is damaged more than this, it may not be such an easy fix. And the camera is difficult to handle as it is connected by those pin strips everywhere. It made me nervous to handle it as I probably could have made it worse, but, I had nothing to lose. Hope this helps out the next person.
