Question about Coby DVD-R1200 DVD Recorder
This is a common problem with these players. As DVD is in perfect condition, clean and not scratched- confirms the problem with player.
If this frequent start and stop occurs with all other DVD's, more often there could be few causes :-
1. Lens is worn out and needs replacement. Of course, you could open and clean the lens manually with a cotton.
2. This could be a mechanical failure that causes frequent shut off. ( Note - This is a possibility ONLY if the DVD only stops. If it restarts itself, more often it is lens failure ).
3. It could be a circuitry problem. ( Firmware - i doubt as i have hardly seen on these models ).
Overall, not worth repair as the repair would cause more than the investment in new. If under warranty, get it replaced. If out of warranty, try to clean the lens and see, if that helps.
I have seen a strange case - Few months ago, i was in a same situation. The player was new and hardly used. We checked every component and does not found anything wrong. We kept the player off for few minutes ( 30 minutes ) and then ON it.Perfect, it worked. This is due to the microprocessor which was reset by disconnecting the power supply.
If the problem is with this DVD, it could be a format problem. In this case, either use another brand or a different format.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

If the DVD player is playing the DVD without a fault prior to the fault and then all of a sudden the set fails, then I wish to advice that you open the set when the faults occurs .
Now keep the lid aside and check in the main board if any of the IC's are heating up. Now use a good soldering iron and do a fine job of soldering all the suspected dry solderings found on this board. please take care not to bridge any circuits but use a good iron. Now if the fault stays get hold of a freeze it spray that can be used to cool the iC section .Do this and see if the fault changes, If so the IC / board is defective.
Find the availability , the cost and then decide on the job.If in warranty claim for a replacement.
However if the picture is irregular on all DVD's then the fault in the optical head is also a possibility.
Hope my advice helps.
