Re: PET824 Portable DVD player
Try cleaning the optical lens manually. Just eject the cd tray and unplug the dvd from power source and remove the casing > Take a cu-tip with a small amount of alcohol on it and you will be able to see the optical lens in the middle of the carriage > Clean it a few times and let air dry for about 1 minute > replace the case and plug it back in and try loading your disc. The other problem could either be an alignment problem which you will have to take it to a shop because they have the tools to do it, but is inexpensive to have done about 25-30 dollars. The worse case scenario is your optical device is damages and has to be replaced, which you might as well buy a brand new one because they are rather expensive. Hope this helps and always try the simple stuff first. Let me know if I can be of further help.

If you know how to take it apart, you can clean the laser lens with a Q-tip, and a little rubbing alchohol. this will probably fix it. Do NOT do this with it plugged in. Can cause permanent damage to your eyes!
you can try moving the laser lens that reads the dvd's just don't touch the lens just move that little square it's attached. all you have to do is move it back or forth just a little and leave it and try the cd and if that don't work just keep on moving it around until it reads. it'll work i had that problem on my dvd player and my playstation.
With the power turned off, open the DVD Player, and
then open the top where you load the DVD into the player. Locate the
and notice that the laser is attached to a transport assembly that
moves the laser
diagonally outward in a slot. 1. Slide this assembly outward to the end
of its track. 2. Slide the assembly back inward to the closest inward
position. 3. Repeat the process of sliding the assembly outward and then
back inward.4. Put in a music CD and let it play all the way through.
This helps to calibrate the laser head assembly movement. When the
music CD is finished playing. 5. Put in a DVD, and you should have a

customer who ask for help with the forever loading disc problems. This
solution may work on other models of portable DVD players. Most
portable DVD players use this type of transport mechanism. Try this
solution it might work for you.
Most likely the dvd is dirty, scratched, or chipped. Try cleaning the dvd disk with a soft cloth (chamois works best). Look at the surface of the disk and if it is scratched lightly, dust and dirt particles, fingerprints, etc will cause refractions from the laser light in the dvd player, which is then read as an error by the dvd player. Cleaning it with a soft cloth will sometimes help.
If that does not work, hold the disk up towards a light source and look for light coming through from the other side. If this happens, the disk is unreadable and unrepairable as the data source has been corrupted.
