    Thanks so much for your help. I think if I have to send this out to tech services it's not worth it since I bought the unit brand new for around 100. I really appreciate your help. Thanks again

Make sure you try a few different disc's and clean the disc's as well.
Disc cleaning kits are available at retailers that sell the players.
if you want to save a few bucks you can clean the disc's the way I do. it works as good or better than the cleaning devices.
Spray a small amount of windex on the disc and use a soft cloth like a bath towel or terry cloth, something soft that won't scratch the disc (paper towels can scratch disc's) to clean it with.

If that does not help you may need to clean the lens on the laser pick up. You can find a cleaning disc at many retailers that sell DVD and CD players. The disc has some very fine brushes on it and you put it in the player and run it for about 20 to 30 seconds.
If that does not help either, you will need to have it taken in to a repair center for service.
There are no other options for an end user to perform that can make the disc play.
The problem will require some good troubleshooting skills.
many times the laser pick up is bad when it won't read the disc.
There are a few other things that will cause it as well.
You can count on the repair to cost at least $75 if you are lucky and maybe as much as $150 or $200, It just depends on what the exact problem is. There is just no way to tell without troubleshooting it, and that can only be done with the proper equipment.
Audiovox parts are not very easy to find.
I don't mean to discourage you, but if the steps above do not work, you may need to buy a new one, unless it is under warranty. In that case you will probably get it exchanged.
I hope this was helpful for you, or at least lets you make an informed desicion.
let me know if you need any more help with it.

I purchased a toshiba portable dvd player and the disc is not spinning therefore reads no valid disc. I have put in a few discs still same reading? Any suggestions?

The Sled Motor is defective. this is the motor, whic spins the disc as it has been loaded properly. If the loader mechanism loads the disc properly into place and if the catch up magnet catches the disc in place, and still the dis do not spins, replace the sled motor. OK.

Wrong disc

Try an other disc. Soem discs may not recogonized. It will depend on its recording. Put an MP3 and Audio CD disc in it and see whether they are regognaized by the player. If it does not reads any disc, there are two possiblilities for this fault. The first one is of dirty or dusty laser pickup lens, and the other is with a faulty laser pick up uit itself.
Just put a cleaning disc in it, and play it for at least three times. Check it after. If this does not hel you, beofre replacing the laser pickup unit, just replace the strip wire that goes from this laser pickup unit to the main board. It is a flat thin cable, can be bought from most of the electronic spare part selling shops at your town.
Even repacing the strip wire, and cleaning does not help you, you have to repalce the laser pickup unit. OK.

I have a 22" LCD

Either your DVD players' laser pickup unit or its strip wire has got damaged. Laser pickup unit is one which reads the disc we put into it, and strip wire is one which connected between the main circuit board and laser pickup unit assembly. The strip wire damage is common for all cd players, and dvd players. Just replace the strip wire with a new one of same type; and see the effect. If it helps you it is OK. If not, replace the laser pickup unit assembly with same type and number.
If you wants anymore assistance, feel free to contact me by Fixya. OK.

LG model 32LG40 /w DVD player; disc stuck inside; cannot remove or play disc.

You must take your set in to have the player removed, dis-mantled and the disc removed. I never recommend to my customers ever buying a built in unit. Just food for thought the next time you purchase a set. Always buy separate.

Dr787t won't play disc. Player won't recognize

You can try to stop this by dis-assembling the unit to gain access to the laser and you can clean the laser using a cotton bud or cue tip, if that doesnt solve the issue, what you can do is with the case off, put in a dvd and see if it spins, and also note if the laser is lighting up, if it isnt lighting up or if the disc isnt spinning you may need to replace the dvd loader of the unit.
If the laser doesnt light up and the disc doesnt spin its possible you may need to replace the MPEG Printed Circuit Board which you will fing attatched to to the dvd loader via small ribbon cables, be carefull when removing these if you need to remove them or a seriens of small plugs. I hope this helps. Good Luck.

Panasonic dmres30v unable to open dvd drawer led displaying u99 and cant remove

Press the power button on the main unit to switch the unit to standby. When the unit is in standby , press the power button again on the main unit to turn it on. If the unit doesn’t switch to standby, press and hold the power button on the main unit for about 10 seconds to forcibly switch it to standby.

To open the drawer, press and hold STOP and CH UP buttons on the main unit at the same time for about 5 seconds.

I cannot retrieve a DVD disc. Disc drawer is locked.

The best course of action, if the dvd drawer will not open, is to either remove the case and dis assemble the dvd drive to retrieve your dvd or otherwise u can take it to a authorised sharp agent and they can retrieve it for you, keeping in mind the problem reported you have caused, so u will pay for repairs in a normal cicumstance, as they do not cover mistakes like this.
