Audiovox MD1988 portable DVD player not spinning

We have an Audiovox MD1988 portable DVD player that seems to have overheated and now will not spin the DVDs. My husband took it apart and thinks the motor is working because it spins the DVD for about 5 seconds.. Maybe a belt. He's very good with fixing things, so any ideas would be welcome.

Overheated?Inside the car with sun directly on it or electrical overheat? In the car-Carry it in the house let it cool to room temp.Open the tray and dry it. You may have experienced a change in temp .Like from hot car to cold indoors.Then use the power adapter,it will run.If it is from ilectrical forget it.

Disney D7500PDD Portable DVD Player doesnt spin DVD


Very Good Daniel,
if you are good with a srewdriver.. you could use a DVD from a computer and swap it to disney
Does the door to DVD slides out or pop the lid.
You still can swap if you are careful and you know what you are doing
I've done a few times.
Let me know in the future, if you can't, you can send to me for repair

Audiovox D1020 DVD player won't read DVD anymore


I have the same problem! The only way to fix this is to replace the motor that spins the DVD. if you take it apart and spin the DVD the movie will play. The motor is just wore out and has no torque to start the play process. I am still looking for a replacement motor for it and haven't found anyone that carries the motor required. Only Audiovox so far and they want 180 to send in and fix.

Disc won't load and then shows weird symbol in right corner


Check the black spindle that holds the disk it may be cracked or broken or the little spring tabs are broken. If this is the problem when the disk spins it lifts up and the head doesn't read the disk, this is what has happened to mine. I am trying to locate the part but so far have not had luck finding it.
