Question about Initial IDM-1731 Portable DVD Player with Screen

1 Answer

My DVD player will play some DVDs but not others. I have no idea how it picks and chooses, but it is frustrating. Someone said they thought the lazer may need replacing. If this is true, how would I go about finding a new one?

Good day! in some reasons dvd player will not play other dvd's.
1. The dvd player you have is not multi region meaning it will not read dvd,s coming from other country. or the dvd's you played is unsupported format of your player.
2. The the spindle motor is malfunctioning, this is the one that rotates the dvd's you played. here in the philippines we tend to replace that one. but most of the time it is sold as a lens assembly. witch includes the spindle motor, lens assembly, and ribbon wire. if that is the case most of the possible parts that would be deffective are already address. try to look in the e bay for parts. i hope i have help you in some way.

Samsung DVD HR735 doesn't recognise DVDs


It sounds like the laser in the DVD player is getting weak or has alignment problems. If the DVD that did not play in the samsung but played in others. I would tend to think its not alignment since you mentioned that it's been repaired before. Chances are the laser is weak but still within spec in order to prevent replacement. When My dvd players start to go they will generally stop recognizing burned media and thats your clue to replace it. They are very inexpensive to replace nowadays and have almost become disposable items. Probably not what you wanted to hear but it sounds like's like this player wasnt made very well.

Why can't l play DVD's recorded on this recorder on other player


DVDs come in different versions.
Try using the -R DVDs. Once your DVD recorder finalizes the DVDs they should on any DVD palyer.

Check your manual to find out the finalizing method for your DVD recorder.

I hope this solution is helpful. Let me know.

After finalizing DVD will not play on other DVD players etc


You need to choose the correct option in your software before you burn a dvd if you want it to play on other dvds. Before you choose 'burn' look at the options on the page, it generally gives you two options, one option to burn to play back on your computer only and one option to play back on most dvds. Have a look around on the screen when you burn the disks

What type of dvd used for player


Only a thought but not all DVD players recognise movies on recordable DVDs only original movie DVDs. This is more noticeable on brand players such as Sony.
The cheap models seem to recognise all regions, formats and DVD types.
