When I turn the player on it starts to load the DVD but stops just after 1 or 2 minutes. Also if I take out the power cord it plays longer but still stops.

    I tried just the audio and it did the same thing. Started to load and then shuts off.
    I did the lens cleaner as well.

    Still the same. What next sir.

You DVD has a laser in it called a laser pickup. This part commonly fails in most DVD players. From the symptoms that you described this is your problem. Sometimes you can clean the laser pickup and it will work. In most cases it wont work no matter what you do it.

Unplugg your DVD player

Take phillips head screwdriver

Unscrew the top from and take it off.

The laser pickup is the center of where thre DVD spins when it is inside your DVD player. It should be a clear or reddish round bead that sits on a plastic slider.

Take some dry toilet tissue and clean the laser very gently.

If this doesn't solve your problem your laser pickup is bad. Even if you can see the laser come on it is still bad. This is a sighn of a more complicated problem caused my the microprocesser.This is an expensive fix either way it goes and by the retail price of a good DVD player at Wal- Mart being around $60. Why would you pay $100. in parts and labor.

Hi,

the problem is from the laser (lens) of your player. The laser (lens) is very weak, that's why it's difficult for it to load DVD.

If you insert an Audio CD into the player, you will discover that it will load it without any problem.

Get a laser (lens) cleaner, use it to clean the laser (lens). If that doesn't solve the problem, then you will have to replace the laser (lens) of your player to a brand new one and the problem will be solved.

Good luck.

Dvd player stopped working. I put dvd in and it starts turning and says loading and then says no disc & stops turning.


Hi there

Two things can cause the problem you are experiencing,

1.the dvd you are trying to play is bad or

2. the lens of your dvd player is bad

What you should do is to try playing several dvd's to see if they work,if they all do then the particular dvd you are trying to play is bad

If some do not play then the lens is bad ad you should open up the dvd player and clean the lens with a cotton wool dabbed in a little bit of methylated spirit

after cleaning,test the dvd again to see if it plays.

If the problem occurs again,the best solution is to replace the lens of the player because it has become too weak..

DVP-NS30 shows "CANNOT PLAY" message when DVD inserted


Follow this procedure to troubleshoot if the DVD player cannot read or play the inserted disc.
  1. Ensure the inserted disc is compatible with the DVD player.IMPORTANT: Refer to the operating instructions supplied with the product for a list of compatible disc. Manuals are available online in the Manuals/Specs/Warranty section of the Sony® eSupport Web site.
  2. Use a soft cloth to clean the disc.
  3. Examine the disc for any cracks or scratches that might be interfering with playback.
  4. Attempt to play another disc.NOTES:
    • If another disc plays in the DVD player, then the previous disc is faulty.
    • Some recordable discs may not play correctly because of the quality of the recording, the physical condition of the disc, or the characteristics of the recording device or authoring software used.

  5. Remove the disc from the DVD player.
  6. Turn off the DVD player.
  7. Unplug the power cord of the DVD player from the AC outlet.
  8. Let the DVD player remain without power for 1 minute.
  9. Plug the power cord back into the AC outlet.
  10. Turn on the DVD player.
  11. Insert the disc into the DVD player.
  12. Attempt to play the disc.
If still persists, its time for your device to get serviced.

Dvd won't play or eject


If you want to get the dvd out
you can try this:
First turn of you dvd player at the mains, Then power it up, But the moment it powers up press the eject button a few times so it doesn't start to load. If it doesn't work the first time try it one more time since you may not get the hang of it at first.
then you dvd should eject.
With dvd players like this, corrupt, copied or really scratched dvds may make your dvd player do this.

Screen comes on, disk turns, loading starts, and doesnt stop


With the power turned off, open the DVD Player, and then open the top where you load the DVD into the player. Locate the laser lens and notice that the laser is attached to a transport assembly that moves the laser diagonally outward in a slot. 1. Slide this assembly outward to the end of its track. 2. Slide the assembly back inward to the closest inward position. 3. Repeat the process of sliding the assembly outward and then back inward.4. Put in a music CD and let it play all the way through. This helps to calibrate the laser head assembly movement. When the music CD is finished playing. 5. Put in a DVD, and you should have a working unit again This is a factory solution from Mintek that was given to a customer who ask for help with the forever loading disc problems. This solution may work on other models of portable DVD players. Most portable DVD players use this type of transport mechanism. Try this solution it might work for you.

I am not sure but maybe purchase a DVD cleaner kit for the player around $10. USD, and make sure the DVD itself is clean and without scratches. Also, try dvd player on another tv to see if it is OK. Other than that input settings. I do not know of any inherent design problems in the unit. Have you tired their web site?

Player won't load any discs


I don't have a solution at this time. I have the same DVD player and mine stopped working this past weekend. It is doing the same thing as yours. I opened the case and loaded a disc and watched the mechanism. The disc won't spin. if you tap the disc it will start spinning and load and start playing. I thought I had fully fixed it. It will load most times but now the video and audio stutters as if the discs is spinning at varying rates.
