    Same thing. This player worked fine for a while and then simply refused to turn on. It's as if it is getting no power.

    My coby dvd-937 will not turn on. I have had the machine for about 1 year. The instruction manual mentions a "battery pack" on page 23 and "remove the battery" on page 16, but I cannot find this battery or battery pack.

    Also I was having lots of problems (when the machine was still able to be turned on) where the player would stall while playing movies.

    And the sub-woofer has developed a bad sound, a low pitch distortion.

    I have not been happy with the Coby 937 at all!!!

I have the same problem. It worked fine for a while, then I could not even turn it on. I opened the case, and the fuse looks fine. I have no clue what the problem could be. When I turn the power on I head a click sound. However, there is no indication on the LED. The bay won't open/close and it does not respond at all. Almost like a corpse.

I converted youtube videos to MPEG-1 format using VLC player but my Coby Dvd does not play them

No it won't, the player is designed to playback DVD movies bought from the stores and is limited to a single format.

Just bought it take it back to the store with the receipt and get a refund and buy a different brand or trade it for a new one while at the store.

Remote control not functioning properly

I work for Coby technical support. Our customer service phone number is 1-800-727-3592.

It sounds like the remote needs to be replaced. Below is the procedure you would follow to obtain a replacement remote from COBY.

To obtain a replacement part from COBY, you must follow these instructions:
Please send:

1. A money order made out to COBY Electronics in the amount of $6.00 (FOR EACH PART ORDERED! -- TFDVD batteries cost $18.00)
2. A note with your full name, phone number, and return address.
3. A note detailing the model number of the device/unit and the part being requested.
4. If you're requesting a replacement remote please write the numbers found on the back of the remote on the note mentioned above.

We strongly suggest you either send the above requirements via certified mail OR with delivery confirmation which is available from the post office. And please hold on to your money order receipt/stub.

COBY will not make return shipments to a P.O. Box. For shipping to international addresses, actual freight will be charged. Please mail the above requirements to:

Customer Service
COBY Electronics Corp.
56-65 Rust Street
Maspeth, NY 11378

Failure to enclose the above requirements will result in a delay in the processing of your part request. Please allow 4 weeks for the processing of your request; allow 6 weeks during the November to February holiday season.

While this solution doesn't "fix" your problem, I hope that by giving you the facts, I've enabled you to make an informed decision as to what to do next.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Coby portable DVD player

Let me get this straight..
You want ME to pay YOU $10 for you to help me figure out how to fix this, but if I've figured it out on my own, you want ME to tell YOU how to fix it for FREE so you can sell MY knowledge to someone else for your own gain?
I might be stupid with computers and such but I'm not TOTALLY stupid! You must be though if you thought I'd fall for this. Either that, or you've got a lot of balls.

Coby dvd player

do you see the laser light come on when the disk spins if not it has probably lost power or failed, if so sometimes the laser head gets moved to close to the drive mechanism and the motor cant pull it out. i have found several of these that had this problem.

The unit won't turn on

We have exact same issue. My husband called Coby. They said if the red light is on & won't go green, the system is junk. Can return to the store or them. We are off to buy a new player and it won't be a Coby!
