Question about Televison & Video
SOURCE: rca dvd player drc285
I have returned the same dvd player twice and it seems that they all have this defect after a few runs. It's a shame because they can read divx but I'm done with this cheap brand made in very light fragile plastic. I've been told that there is nothing to do with this problem, it's just a bad one.

SOURCE: 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.

Try cleaning both the disk and the lens of the dvd player. Sometimes even a little bit of dust can make your dvd player go ballistic. Brands like Sony,Philips and LG are very sensitive. If anything else fails, you can take it to a repair shop to find out if the lens isn't cracked or the LED isn't responding while trying to read the disk.

call support from manufacturer on how to reset your player,
For instance, on Samsung players after it is powered on you hold in both channel buttons for 10 sec and the player restarts. that fixed mine that had the same problem

Sounds like a build up of dust on the lens.
2 options -
Either buy a DVD lens cleaner
Note DVD LENS cleaner, NOT DVD Cleaner the latter is for the discs, not the player
or second option is to remove lid from your player (usually 5 or 6 screws) and gently swab the lens with a cotton bud or similar soft lint free product. Try not to push too hard on the lens or you may damage the mechanism.
The lens is really obvious as it faces upwards and looks like a small round clear glass bead.
Make sure its unplugged too!
