    Ok. sorry about the delay. Just started back to work. :)

    If you are having trouble with your player, the first thing to do is what is called a hard reset. This is where you disconnect the player from the wall socket for 30 mins, then reconnect. If there were any lockup issues, this will clear them.
    If the player still does bot work correctly, you can try to clean the laser lens. to do this you will need

    1. to take the lid off the player, load and unload a disc so you can see where it loads to. Sometimes, you also have to take off another internal cover that contains the tray and laser assembly.

    2. Eject the disc, and switch the unit off with the tray out. Makes it easier to get to the lens.

    3. Look for a small clear lens that is next to the platter that the disc sits onto when it loads.

    4. Using a cotton bud moistened with Windex(glass cleaner) gently clean the lens using circular motion. after cleaning, gently polish the lens with a dry cotton bud to be sure that there is no residue, or smearing.

    5. Turn the unit on again, the drawer will shut, open the tray and load another disc. If the unit was not working because of dirt on the laser lens, it will now work.
    If the machine still has problems, there is not alot that can be done to repair a player of this value. They can be replaced for less than $40.

    Good luck. I hope that you were able to fix the machine

The DVD will not load. There are no scratches on the DVD and it is from a box set, all the other DVDs work no problem just this one will not load.

you did not say if you hear the disc spinning. if it spins and doesnt play, its a bad cd for ur machine, no matter it its in a set. it could have bad information on it that causes it not to play. try other machines. if it still does not play, it is defective. yes, they can be bad, even new ones that havent been written to can be bad. i get at least a half dozen out of a hundred.

Keeps on loading and never plays the disc

The only thing you can try is clean the laser lens with rubbing alcohol and a Q-Tip, allow several minutes to dry before testing, If this fails the laser pickup assembly will need to be replaced, a costly adventure.

Dvd player refuses to read any disc I load into the machine

Hello I was looking to try and help you with your DVD player, we will start by loading a music cd store purchased, no burned cds please, if the cd loads and plays then your dvd player is either out of adjustment or going bad, most dvd players, i have worked on, will load and play a music cd, but will show loading errors when trying DVD's. If the music cd dosen't load then there could be an issue with the drive or tray. If the music cd plays just fine, then your laser is either out of adjustment or going bad. You can call the manufacuter to see if there is a process for resetting the DVD player, not all DVD players have this option, if resetting the DVD player dosen't work, but music cd's do then your laser lens is dirty or going bad. At this point you have three options 1) Take it to a repair shop, 2) Get an new one, 3) Get your hands dirty if your really handy and know what your doing to clean and replace the laser. I hope I can be of further assitance and I look forward to helping in the future, Thank You and have a nice day.

Displays "wrong disc" after trying to load

I have found several of these that have had that problem and the ones i repaired had the same problem the power had failed to the laser eye. it was a different fix for each but that was the basic answer you can take it apart if its not under warrenty and look at the power board look for burnt resistors they turn black, or darker brown spots on the board. one did have the motor that controlled the eye bad the eye would not move.

No valid disc

Hi, Try cleaning the lens. A CD cleaner for PC CD/DVD will also work with DVD players. If problem is not corrected, you may need to seek the services of a qualified professional. Good luck and kind regards.
