...be sure you are in the same zone as the DVD was designed for. The world seems to be divided in numerous zones, and DVD'S from one area will not work from another area. That is why one should not buy equipment when one goes on vacations !
Hello jwbabyj hi, 3 years of good listening to music on your player is rather good for its life, no device doesn't last forever, this failure is due to use, dust, temperature, shock, fluctuating power source and other external devices, which will make you player eventually give up. My solutions suggest the following:
Clean your player lens, there are after market lens cleaners, buy one. and use it to clean the player lens.
You may need to remove the top cover to have access to the lens for manual cleaning if the lens cleaner will not work out. Get one clean ear bud, and dampen one side with warm water, rub this in circular motion to the lens, 3 to 5 revolutions will do, use the other dry side to dry off the lens. replace the cover and test. do this several times until the player works.
If still, this does not work, remove the cover and see if the lens glows visible light, to do this eject the tray, do not place any CD, then close, look at the lens and see if it emits visible light. No light bad lens. needs lens replacement. bring it for service.
Check for worn out belts, does your player spindle spins? no spinning spindle bad player. needs spindle replacement.
I have had a couple of these with the same problem , and in 2 out of the three cases the cure was the same .. Earphone socket fault ?
Ear phone sockets are designed to dissconect the speakers on insertion but with the constant use and pulling they get on a mobile system they sometimes lock open and do not reconnect the speakers you could check that ..
The other one I had was diffrent that one the sound output chip was faulty and had to be replaced as did the speaker output capacitors , one had failed causing the chip to overheat .. hope this helps Regards Vortash
Looks like several people have this problem. I downloaded a copy of the
manual to see if it had any hidden secrets, but no luck (I don't have
one of these).
This thing has a couple of modes (DVD or A/V
input) that you switch between by pressing and holding the STOP/DVD/AV
button in until it switches. Try switching the mode a couple of times.
Maybe the thing is expecting external audio.
Other than that
there doesn't seem to be any cause other than a defective unit. These
things are made in such quantity and at such low cost that there will
always be duds. If they are still within the return period where you
bought them, then take them back for exchange and test them at the
store. If you can't do that, contact GPX at the phone number or website
about replacing it.
(I personally don't buy GPX for the simple
reason that their stuff has problems sometimes. I went through 3 CD
boomboxes once and swore never again for this brand.)
I had this problem. The drive belt that lifts the disc reader was too worn out to lift up to the disc. I replaced it by taking a regular sized baloon and cutting off the rolled up piece on the bottom. Worked great in place of a belt.
