AUDIOVOX DVD-168 PLAYER

The player will not read the disc. I have done my best to clean the laser. It still spins but does not recognize that a disc is in. It spins it without a problem, but never reads that the disc is there.

This is an old unit and none are available. My problem is that this goes in a console in my car so the size of the unit going in the console is a perfect unique fit.

How can I repair the laser eye? I suspect that the eye has gone bad.
Thanks,
Greg

SOURCE: car DVD player won't read DVDs

Well if like me you have tried taking it to a repair shop, you know that no one will touch it. These are unreliable cheap units, the screens are great just the DVD players keep going wrong. Give up and plug a portable media player into the input, all the films on a hard drive - no jumping - stopping etc etc

When i put a dvd in player tries to load but then it says no disc. model hrdv700m audiovox


Hi,

how long have you been using this player? I suspect the laser (lens) of the player. I think the laser (lens) is weak that's why it cannot read data/files on DVD discs.

To confirm if actually its a laser problem, insert an Audio CD into the player and see if will play. If it plays, then obviously, your laser (lens) is weak. But if it doesn't play Audio CD, then it might still be the laser (lens) or a mechanism problem.

Get a lens cleaner, use it to clean the lens. If that doesn't solve the problem, get a screw driver, open the player's cover so that you can gain access to the lens, use a cotton board to clean the surface of the lens. This should clean dust or dirt that might be on the lens.

If non of the above solves the problem, then know that you need to replace the laser to a brand new one.

To replace the lens, remove the bad laser, use it as a sample to get exactly the same type and do the replacement. Note that replacing a laser (lens) needs a professional touch, so if you cannot replace the laser, get it to a repairman to fix it for you.

Once this us done, your player will play all DVD discs again.

Regards.

I have an Audiovox D1020 DVD player that when a DVD is put in continuously tries to load the DVD without any success. The DVD is not a copy, but the original store bought version. It works on my other DVD...


Did you play other DVD's on the same because it may happen somtimes that one particular player may not be able to play a dvd which is being played in other systems

Wont read dvd or cd


The problem is the laser pickup assembly, the laser pickup gets weaker overtime until it can not read the disc, or the pladder motor becomes defective. One possible solution is clean the laser lens with a Q-Tip and rubbing alcohol, carefully clean the lens and wipe excess off. If this fails it is cheaper to replace the dvd player.

I have a 7" Audiovox portable dvd player that keep saying loading then after it say no madia....


It may be that the disc you are trying to play is so dirty that it cannot be read. The other problem may be that the laser head is dirty especially with a portable device. Either way the machine cannot read the disc and gives up trying after some time. Careful cleaning shoudl resolve your issue.

Audiovox D1210 DVD won't load to play. When we put in a DVD to play a movie, the screen displays "loading" for a while and then reads "no disc". Using a can of air (and sometimes jolting the player itself)...


Your DVD players may have slip out of calibration. You can try setting them back to factory specifications. To do this go to the set up menu main page. Highlight preferences and press enter.Next highlight defaults and press enter. This will reset the DVD player to the factory settings. This procedure is explained in the owners manual on page 26. If this does not solve your problem, you can try using a cleaning disc to clean the laser head and transport. This should restore the laser, and transport so that you can use it. If you are still experiencing problems with the DVD player, you can call Audiovox customer support at this telephone number. 1-800-645-4994. Give them the model number of you DVD player and tell them about the problem you are having with the DVD player. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

No longer loading dvds


You may have a bad laser. First, make sure the laser assy. travels back and forth easily, then make sure the table the disc sits on spins freely. If it still isn't reading, load a disc and immediatly flip it over to it's top and see if it works. Working or not, still a bad laser.

Look for dust, dirt or foreign object on the laser lens under where you put the disc in. Maybe blow some clean air on it.
