Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a Spectroniq 8.5" portable DVD player, Model no. PDV-808. I have never used this unit before yesterday and tried to play a DVD and a display in the upper right hand corner came up as "Wrong Disc". I checked the trouble- shooting pages and followed those instructions, but nothing changed. I tried brand new discs as well as previously viewed ones and still the same message appeared. What can I do??????????????

Hello, and thanks for using FixYa.

Reason for the error message is most likely that the dvd is the wrong region code. Or then the laser optics in the dvd drive are either dirty or failing and would need to get replaced, cleaning might also help. Another possible problem is faulty capacitors on the unit, they may cause such messages to appear.

Please let me know if you require further assistance or if you have any questions.

You will have to purchase a replacement battery from the manufacture or their authorized parts distributor. Don't waste time looking in electronics stores, because you won't find it there.

Broken disk lid

Not sure if you can find a replacement lid but you may be able to play DVD's if you manually depress the small switch that the lid would engage if it were closed. The switch is located where the lid hinges at the right side, you should see a small rectangular hole. The switch can be depressed through that hole. Of cousre, your DVD will be spinning with no lid to protect it but just don't touch it while the disc is playing. When done playing, you can just turn the unit off or remove whatever you used to engage the small lid switch.
