Insignia IS-PD04922 Poratble DVD Player 2005

When I load a disk, the disk spins, the laser light lites up and wiggles around just a little, but it never starts the movie. The screen perpetually says "Loading". Previous to this some of the movies would lock up while playing and the screen would freeze.

    No dice. When I put my ear to the device I can hear it wizzing around and reving up. But after about 15 seconds it throtles down and the repeats the cycle.

Take a cotton swab with some alchohol on it and clean the lens, let it dry and try again.

The digital labs k715 portable dvd player says no disk when there is a disk inside.have tried several disks.please help


how long have you been using this player and when did this begin?

Remove the disc and try another. If the player refuses to eject the disc, remove it from the wall and fix it back and fix it back again. Then turn the player on.

If the player still gets stuck on "loading" mode for other disc, then it means the laser is weak.

The lens is weak such that it cannot load data on discs. Its spinning, trying to load, but can't because of the weak laser.

Get a lens cleaner, use it to clean the lens. If that doesn't solve the problem, get a screw driver, open the player's cover so that you can gain access to the lens, use a cotton board to clean the surface of the lens. This should clean dust or dirt that might be on the lens.

If non of the above solves the problem, then know that you need to replace the laser to a brand new one.

To replace the lens, remove the bad laser, use it as a sample to get exactly the same type and do the replacement. Note that replacing a laser (lens) needs a professional touch, so if you cannot replace the laser, get it to a repairman to fix it for you.

Once this us done, your player will play all discs again.

Good luck.

Screen say : no dish

the unit will say "no disk" if it is unable to read your disk ... that is often caused by dust or debree on the laser or the laser could be damaged ... the laser is the little lens that you see when the lid is open ... you can clean that with a soft tissue and some eye glass cleaner ..dont spray directly on the laser .. spray only on the tissue . very gently clean and dry the laser ... its mounted on a flexible mechanism so you have to be careful not to stress it ... also clean your disk . if the laser cleaning doesnt help then it may be damaged or worn out .. make sure the laser wiggles freely as if it was on a spring ... make sure the disk is actually turning .. you can listen for it to spin up .. ...

Insignia ISPD040922 just keeps 'loading' when I put in a disk...It never plays

It could either be that the laser has become damaged/ worn-out; or all you have to do is plug your DVD player into the charger, leave it there for a few days & then turn it on & test it. Otherwise, it would be in your best intrest just to take it to the store you bought it from.

DVP642/ 37 DVD player says "NO DISK" with any disk.

Usually if there is a NO DISC error, and the lens is verified clean, there is either dust in the laser assembly (use a can of compressed air to clean it out) or a loose laser assembly cable. Also check to make sure the lens can bob (wiggle around), and that it can slide back and forth.

The emergency eject is underneath, its a small slot. Insert a toothpick at one end and slide to the other end to open the tray.

Permenant "Unknown Disk"

Try cleaning the player with a DVD lens cleaner.

If you're adventurous enough, and the player is out of warranty, you might want to open up the player exposing the lens part. Then, try to eject and close the disk tray and see if the laser diode lits up (avoid staring at the laser light, it will ruin your eyesight! View it from the side not directly into your eye.)

Also check if the spindle spins a little. Or, with the top cover open (this magnetized cover serves to hold the disc firmly as it spins), insert a disc into the tray and close it. See if the spindle spins with the disc.

This problem points most of the time with either a bad laser or misalignment. If misalignment is the case, this could be fixed by carefully turning (very slowly...) a tiny potentiometer located near the laser diode (experiment with the best setting, mark each turn and try any disc with each turn. Be patient)

This fix is not for the faint of heart, and at your own risk. If you're not sure of what you will be doing, leave the servicing to a qualified technician.

Insignia portable dvd player: disc not spinning

The laser has become damaged/worn-out. There is no fix for it as replacement parts are not made for it.
