Question about Sungale PD-701

1 Answer

Mine is a DVD9100 player, obviously older. It loads the disc and then shows no disc and will not play. I have cleaned the disc but it sounds like the disc is running and then stops. Is it worth having it serviced or just buying a new one? Valerie

Have you tried to unplug and plug in the Device after few minutes, say 30 minutes?If not, try it.

It is quite a common problem with this model, you can try a clean on the lens,you can use a DVD cleaning kit which you can buy from Radio Shack or similar or you can clean manually.

To clean manually unplug from wall and leave two minutes.Remove cover identify the lens as a small round glass lens in the DVD tray assembly.Clean with the glass lens with a cotton bud or similar, use a small amount of isopropyl alcohol or do the clean dry, any other cleaning product could damage the unit.Remove any foreign objects in the unit.Reassemble and test

If no luck then you will need a new laser assembly I'm afraid.

Now, regarding Caps. Yes, it could be another Problem. When you Open the Player, you would see Caps like :-


If you see, Cylindrical Type Components, all those are Caps. There might be chance that any one of these could be Leaked / Bulged / Swelled. Make sure that there is no Cold Solder Joint and there is no other Broken Component on the Board.

If you find anything Swelled / Leaked / Bulged, you could De Solder and Re Solder the New Caps. The caps could be easily available in the Market. You could buy it Online or you could go to Radio Shack, Fry's.Make sure to Buy a Similar one. I have seen , if you buy a Low Quality Cap, it could again Swelled or Blown.Usually Bad Caps have Ammonia Kind of Odor.

The Cost of Caps would be less than $20.

I hope that the above information would be useful for you to Resolve the Problem.

Note - Sending the unit for repair would not be recommended as the cost of repair would be quite high relative to the cost of the product.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Toshiba REGZA won't play DVD. Shows "disc loading" then goes to wide screen mode, but then ejects the disc. Whats up?

Sounds like the laser pickup unit to the DVD player is faulty. Contact any service technician to replace it. The disc mechanism should be taken out of it to replace this part.
If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience.

My 360 takes a long time to load and when it finally loads it won't play games but it will play DVDs it's driving me mad I just want to play games

My xbox did same, Try cleaning the disk first, I know this is obvious but eliminate this then clean the laser , you can buy cleaner discs cheaply. if still faulty then i would change the disk drive. ( get one on ebay) . But the disk drive is keyed to the motherboard so you will need to swap the circuitboard over from your dvd player to the new one. I did this with mine with great results. You can get info on ebay how to get into your xbox .

Either the disc or the player likely need a good cleaning. Clean the disc with a soft cloth, clean the player with a good cleaner disc.

Dvd "unknown disc" message coming up

Have you tryed to use a lens cleaning disc yet. The laser lens on these players and recorders alike, must have the lens cleaned every oince in awhile. If that does not help, most likly you have a bad laser pickup assembly and you will need to replace the plaer as to have that repaiered, you could buy a new unit. Good Luck

"wrong disc" display

I have the same problem with my DP313 Norcent. I found though that it will play recorded dvds. It also will play older Dvds and some Anime ones. It will play older recorded mp3s but NOT newer ones, I'm not sure if it's because they are burned at a faster rate or what. Also it will not play any of the new dvds except as stated before some of the Anime ones. It pays to try everything out to ensure it not a mechanical problem. I found it's not with mine, but still unsure why it won't play new dvds?
