It looks like you might have to replace the laser pick assembly mechanism but not the laser assembly.
This mechanism will have the drive and spin motors on it but not the laser pick assembly.
I would suggest to call the manufacturers and ask them for that particular part. If you DIY, just be careful when you open the device as all the connections are short and could break if not disconnected properly.
Let me know if you require further assistance.

Dvds keep skipping


It is possible that your portable set has a defective optical head and so does not read properly the cds. Hence it will be good if you cna get the optical head changed provided the cost if effective. the unit has to be changed with precaution because any static damage to the new head can be serious. hence if you are not familiar get help to install the new head . Hope you try. Good day

My son plugged his 20v transformer off his laptop into the 9v socket on the dvd player,now the screen has no picture.....is the dvd no good or can it be repaired....thankyou


If you have the original power cord, should be 9 to 12 volts at 1.5 amp rating. You can go direct online to Venturer/Audiovox.com and look under updates/fixes for your model # and get a download update that you can copy onto a CD/ROM or DVD that will reset the programing as well as update your DVD player. This will also work for skipping issues if bumped etc. I have the same model and did the same thing to mine by mistake.

GoldStar GBV241 Dvd Player/VCR Combo skips and freezes


a_tren,

The most possible thing which cause skipping and stalling display are this:

1) The optical lens of your player might have some dust or any small particles blocking the beam of the lens.

solution: if you have guts , open and clean the optic lens using cottons buds. It would not be advisable to apply any liquid to the buds for it my cause blurry or moisture to the lens.Also use cotton buds which is soft at the end and gently wipe the optic lens in circular motion.

if still the same problem? the 2nd cause would be:

2) this time it would be more technical. Most probably the resistance of your spindle motor already change (this normally happens to every DVD player) the normal resistance of spindle motor is around 200ohms. and if there's a change or drop of resistance this would cause skipping and sometimes cause not able to detect disc or read disc.


note: if you try my 1st suggestion and still the same problem.It is advisable to seek a help from a qualified technician.

cheers,
mark

The sreen keeps skipping


Try the 'System' or 'P/N' key on remote to switch video modes.
These units also have poor power supplies. If your handy with
PCB repair check the capacitors. Be sure to replace any 10v caps with 16v (same uF rating) as they are probably for the 12v bus and 10v caps will soon fail.
