You can hear it spinning -and it say's it's loading, but it never loads
No picture or sound ever comes up.
I bought the Player November 5, 2005. I was activated in the army the next week and have finally come home and putting things in place I discovered my cute little DVD player.
I couldn't take with me or never used. Could that be the problem it hasn't been used at all and in the box for all 2 1/2 years?

Hello There are two possibilities for this fault. The first one is of its loading belt. If loading belt, that fastened to loading gear wheel to loading motor get loose or broken, the tray won't come out or go inside. Just place your ear very near to the player, and push eject button and listen, whether there is a motor running sound for at least 3 seconds. If you hear this sound, make sure that the belt is brokenn. The second chance is with loading motor itself. If it do not get proper voltage or got dmaged, the fault you describe here will occur. To replace this motor, you have to disassemble the CD mechanism. You must have all the tools to do the work and experience to disassemble and reassemble the CD mechanism. The motor is not a costly part, and can be bought from most of the electronic spare part selling shops at your town. OK.
There are mainly three motors for most of the DVD players. One to spin the disc we insert in, other to load the laser pickup unit to-and-fro inside it to read the disc and an other one to load the tray mechanism 'in-out'. According to your description, the disc spins inside, and you can hear its spin. So motor which spins the disc has no trouble at all I should say. Then comes to the second motor that moves the laser assembly inside it. If it do not work, the laser pickup unit won't move and no reading will take place and 'No Disc' display will be the result. The last chance is with Laser Pickup Unit itself. Just get this unit repaired by any well experienced service technician or by the authorised service center, because, there are special tools to open this unit. As it is a compactable one, more care should be given to it while repairing. Suspect the second motor I described earlier, and the Laser Pickup Unit. OK.
I opened up the dvd player & determined that the dvd was not spinning or took too long to start spinning, so the reader stopped. It looks like the arm that holds the dvd against the motor mount that turns it does not have enough strength to push against the dvd so that the motor mount does not spin without making the dvd spin with it.
For now, I'm using a small wooden prod inserted into the dvd slot to gently nudge the dvd to get it spinning. When the time comes that that doesn't work, I'll try to adjust the arm, but that's a last resort before I buy a new player.
you allneed to make sure the disc is spinning in the player you should hear it whirr as ut builds speed listen closely to it and keep a hand on it to feel when the disk quits if it starts. its supposed to spin v ery fast do you think you could tell by the sound of it if its spinning fast. some times they make a clicking noise because the drive mounts have slid down in the case and allows the disk to rub or tap the case. please let me know what you find out. this is for all three problems. let me know the results so i can further advise you.
