Question about Panasonic DVD-LS86 Portable DVD Player

2 Answers

Unit fell on the floor and now gets stuck while "Reading Disk .." after hitting play. Can hear the mechanism start and stop continually but never gets past the reading disk stage. Perhaps something has become dislodged that I can snap back into place?

1. Open unit as if you were loading a disc.
2. Locate laser lens and sliding lens assy.
3. Take a non-conductive material (wood, plastic) and try moving the laser assy. along the track.
NOTE: you may have to be a bit heavy-handed to make the laser assy. move.
4. Move it in one direction but only far enough to free the jammed laser mechanism
5. Reinstall a DVD and press "play"

    Holy smokes! I used the eraser side of a pencil and pushed the lens assy inward. You were right I did have to use some force. I got worried when it made a clicking sound, but it worked like a champ!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!

It has probably slipped out of its gearing. Unplug machine take lid of and see if anything obvious, dont switch on though you nead to know what your doing but you may just have dislodged mechanism.
The door flap may be the problem also.

DVD is stuck


Some kind of mechanical problem in the loading mechanism--if possible try to look inside the unit to see if something else is jammed in the mechanism that does not belong there preventing eject etc.

DVD will not stop reading and does not eject.


I have one that did the exact same thing I would put the disk in and it would just continuously read and would not play and a regular dvd cleaner would not work I have3 to take it apart and clean every bit that was cleanable with a Qtip and alcohol and then afterward would get stuck and for a while I had to get it started manualy to get it to open but it played and stopped doing all the reading and done its job then to after a week or so I no longer had to help it open and it was not all the time either hit and miss but today it is doing fine and it was a cheap one and is old but we still watch movies on it and it has not given me any more trouble. Hope this works.

Dvd player will not play any concert videos, says " no disk " but plays movies very well.


hi,
You have to check the laser pickup unit of you dvd player. In your dvd palyer the laser pickup unit is faulty. There are two lasers in DVD players laser unit. One for reading the DVD and the other for reading the CD. In your player the DVD laser is faulty. As it is one module you have to replace the laser pickup unit as a whole. You will get it from any electronic spare part shope near to you. As a whole i mean Normally laser pickup units come with its mechanism like in the picture . May have slight difference with your one. picture is only for reference. Its part number will be written on the bottom side of the laser unit. you have to take the laser unit as sample when you are going to buy the same. If it is reading cds it is sure that the laser pickup is faulty. Its a regular complaint to dvd palyers. To replace the laser pickup you have to remove the cd loader and have to remove connections to it.
ok

My "t " bird hard drive fell onto floor from about


The '1TB' device is 10 to a large power.
The '930GB' is 2 to a much-larger power.

Since '1GB' is 1,073,741,824 bytes,
multiplying 930 times 1,073,741,824 is equal to 1TB.

So, your device is 100% empty -- all 930GB are "free" space.

Unit accepted cassette, won't eject


It is likely that either the drive belt has broken or is slipping. Because the unit is still in "play" mode, the mechanism won't let the door open up. If you have not opened up these units before, do not attempt it now. This unit should be taken to an experienced tech for repair. Where are you located?

Cant get my disk out of the wii


Sounds like the mechanism inside of the drive is bent out of shape or needs to be reseated properly so it can accept and eject disks out. This is going to require opening up the Nintendo Wii and getting the drive out of there.

Here is what the inside of the wii drive looks like:

It could be that the plasic piece that holds the discs in place just needs to be moved back into the center position.

Heres a guide to taking apart the Wii:

Does not recognize/play DVD - shows "NO DISK"


If you are good at repairs.dismantle the Disk drive unit carefully from the main carriage and if the Optical lens reading unit has got a drive P C B ,then desolder the PCB so that you have only the CD mechanism on your table,with a Digital Multimeter check the Ohmic values of both the Spindle motor and Sled motor. the resistance should read between 4.5 ohms and 8ohms any value beyond this means that the drive signal voltage is not enough to move /rotate the disc and optical-pickup in syncronisation.you can get the drive-motors replaced,or replace the CDM assly available off the shelf.
this should solve the problem.hundreds SONY DVD players are running with this remedy.

Phillips portable player PET724


I had the same problem with my PET724. I tried cleaning the lens, letting the battery run dead, even beating on it but nothing worked. When I was cleaning the lens again with some cleaning agent I accidentally slid the laser head as far away from the center as it would go. When I loaded another disc it has worked fine ever since. I have played at least two dozen discs so far with no problem.

Hope this helps.
