If your problem is this: You load the disc, it spins for a bit, then stops and you get the "no disc" warning.

First, try several DVDs and CDs. Be sure they are clean and scratch/smudge free.

If this doesn't work, try a "lens cleaning" disc next. You should be able to find one at places like Staples, Office Max, or Best Buy. Follow the directions on the package.

Still no success? Your problem may lie in the electronics.

Can't get portable dvd player to play. Fine until I reach the play movie option, then it stops working.

I suspect the disk may be damaged, or the laser optical reader may need cleaning or be damaged. I would try using a good quality glasses lens cleaner on the lens of the optical reader - apply a small amount of the solution to a q-tip and go over the lens on the reader and let it air dry. Try a known good DVD - I ran into a problem where a DVD player was doing this same thing and found the disk was a Blu-Ray format disk, and that won't work. If the disk you are trying to play is a DVD, I'd use a microfiber cloth and the glasses cleaner to clean it - one fingerprint can make the player stop. To clean it properly, spritz the underside of the disk lightly and wipe it with the microfiber cloth in a circular manner - a good way is to fold the cloth in half and grip the disk in the cloth and use the edge of the disk to rotate the disk while applying slight pressure with the cloth.

Battery charger doesn't charge batteries. Light

Check the output on the adapter also check the voltage on the battery , If there is none then the particular unit needs a check. If the adaptor voltage is good then the battery can be faulty

DUR-7 charging problem

Are you sure it is not the charger itself at fault here?

If you have or know someone with a multimeter get them to check if any voltage is present on the charger plug of the cord. Batteries do not suddenly stop they usually give less and less time in uptime mode before they finally stop altogether. I would suspect the charger or charging circuit.yes it can be fixed

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Possibly you just need a new power supply/battery charger. There is nothing "magic" about the original power supply. Take the player into an electronics supply shop. They should be able to look at it and match

Dvd player only plays some movies

it might be sevral reasons:
1. Check if region code is the same for movies you playing and DVD player
2. If you using video CDs or copyed DVDs, player might be preventing to playback those kind of discs, due to copyright laws or due to different speed settings for DVD player and discks you using (for intsrance you player can playback DVD/CD+R, and you using DVD/CD-R, or mximum allowed playback speed is 16 you using disk recorded at 24, but this is in case you using burned/copied CD/DVDs)
3. Check it lens is durty. For that use CD/DVD lens cleaning disk
($6 in Walmart, if you are in US)
4. Check if movies you are have the same coloring system, i.e NTSC for US
5. Check CD/DVD for scratches, some DVD players can not playback scratched disks
Please kindly let me know if my information was helpfull for you or you need more info
Good Luck

Samsung DVD-4600 DVD/VCR Player

My Smasung DVD/VCR Combo stopped reading DVDs because of a dirty read head. It started by only playing disks sometimes, and progressed to never playing disks. I assumed it was a dirty laser lens so I bought a lens cleaner set. Unfortunately my player wouldn't play the cleaner disk.

So I took it apart and cleaned the laser lens manually with some isopropyl alcohol (the clenser that came with my cleaning disk), and a lens cloth (that came with my glasses). Just open the case (starting with the screws in the back) and remove the snap in cross panel that obscures the lens of the DVD portion. Put a drop of cleanser on the lens and gently wipe it with the cloth.

Oh and by the way, I take no responsibility if you break your own player while following my instructions. My own DVD player was far out of warranty at the time I cracked it open.
