I have the same player with a similar problem, though the cable is not broken on mine as far as I can tell.

When I put in a disc and close the lid, I can hear the disc spin and the drive seek, but after about 30 seconds, it always shows "NO DISC" in the upper-left area of the screen. I used to use it daily to listen to MP3 audio books on my 45-minute-long drive to and from work every day and I'd occasionally watch DVDs at lunch, but now it does not read any type of disc at all.

After I did a Google search, it seems that Mintek's products are pretty crappy overall and the worst part is that Mintek now appears to be out of business. Their web site, www.mintekdigital.com is now completely gone and there is no current contact information.

It's too bad because I really did like the player's capabilities and relatively long battery life. It came with a remote, a wall charger, a car charger, (cheap) headphones, and a video out to composite video cable. Before I used it on my drive, my son used it in his room because we didn't have a second DVD player and it worked great for him then too.

    Update: I took my player's bottom cover off to see what was happening. The motor I was hearing previously was actually the laser movement motor and not the spindle motor. It turns out that the reason the player does not read any discs is because they are not turning, therefore the laser is unable to read the data.



    I tried doing a somewhat extensive search for the same spindle motor and was only able to find another person looking for the same one, but with no helpful responses. Just in case this helps anyone, it is a Supreming RF-251 motor. I was unable to find any suppliers on Google, with either Web or Shopping pages, so I guess I'm down to either buying a whole new unit or trying to find a suitable replacement motor.

Bush portable DVD player will not load my disc


Hello
Just put in an audio CD disc or an MP3 disc, and see whether it reads them or not. If the player can read these discs, and only refuses to read DVD discs, make sure that the laser pickup unit of it is faulty, and should be replaced with same type and number. If none of them reads, there are two possibilities, the first one is of laser pickup disc itself and the second one is the strip wire [a flat flexible cable connected between laser pickup unit and the mainboard of the player] is faulty. First replace the strip wire. If it helps you, it's OK. If not replace the laser pickup unit also. The strip wire can be bought from most of the electronic spare part shops at your town. When buying laser pickup unit, its number must be noted, and exact replacement should be done. Otherwise, it won't match with the main board. OK.

My disc tray won't open the lights turn on and work but the disc tray just won't open. How can I fix this?


hi,
You have to check two things.
1. You have to check the tray loading belt in the mechanism. To see the same you should remove the mechanism.because the loading belt is beneath the cd tray. As it is cyberhome it will be very difficult to remove the mechanism for an user. if your capable for doing the same then make try. Because you have to remove the top cover then the back panel, then the mechanism. Take care the mother board is attached to the mechanism.

2. You have to check the cyberhome dvd player will show this type of complaint if the Spindle motor is faulty (oppen or short ). Spindle motor is one on which the cd rotates. It will not cost a lot.
ok

I insert a disc. It loads, then either 1 or 2 shows in the display, but nothing functions and the disc will not play. It is a region 2 disc I tried


\usually when a disc won`t play ,it just displays "No Disc".

Is the disc matching the dvd code?
Is the region code correct?
Have you checked what discs the dvd will play, in front of manual.

If those are ok the dvd must have condensation in it.
Place in a warm room,turn on and leave for 2-3 hrs
Then try again fingers crossed for you.

Not closing


Hello, with mechanical problems with sophisticated systems of gears etc, the only way thate one can fix it is if you send me a digital picture yourself. To access the inside of the DVD player, you will have to get a handyman to open the DVD player up with a screwdriver, by undoing some screws which hold the cover to the player itself. Then, with the player's circuit boards (The Green/brown Boards with weird components on it) showing, take around 5-6 photo's of the loading tray and the playing tray.(Where the disc is when watching a movie)In the time being, open the layer's cover as instructed before, and look at the inside of the tray for any broken plastic, debris or anything stopping the tray from opening. Good luck!
