Battery doesn't lock

I'm thinking about purchasing this particular player used. The drawback however, is that the battery does not lock into place. Is this something that can be easily fixed, or should i forget it?

Today I brought blu window phone 8.1 my phone shutdown by itself

Possible reasons :
1) I think you did not recharge it,
2) Your battery is not properly fixed and it is moved from its place.
3) It is scheduled to shut down on a particular time. Check the shutdown time in your mobile options or settings.

DVD player purchased 8/4/10 will not read disc. Model SD7300. Have used the cleaner disc.


how long have you been using this player? I suspect the laser (lens) of the player. I think the laser (lens) is weak that's why it cannot read data/files on DVD discs.

To confirm if actually its a laser problem, insert an Audio CD into the player and see if will play. If it plays, then obviously, your laser (lens) is weak. But if it doesn't play Audio CD, then it might still be the laser (lens) or a mechanism problem.

Get a lens cleaner, use it to clean the lens. If that doesn't solve the problem, get a screw driver, open the player's cover so that you can gain access to the lens, use a cotton board to clean the surface of the lens. This should clean dust or dirt that might be on the lens.

If non of the above solves the problem, then know that you need to replace the laser to a brand new one.

To replace the lens, remove the bad laser, use it as a sample to get exactly the same type and do the replacement. Note that replacing a laser (lens) needs a professional touch, so if you cannot replace the laser, get it to a repairman to fix it for you.

Once this us done, your player will play all DVD discs again.

I purchased a DVD from USA which won't play in my Conia M250 player. Please help.

The DVD players have a setup program built in that locks the player for a certain region.

Search Google for information on "region code" for your particular model player. You usually have to start it in a special way at first and then enter a particular code to unlock your region.

The red charge light will not come on while it is plugged up.

These are natorious for this . What happens is they go dead a lot so people tend to just leave them pluged in during movie time's the thing is it also charges during this time has well, thuss causing over charge. I know! I know! you would think they would be made to no better than this. The answer its done on purpose. Has you have found they sold two to you . you was smart tho and exchanged it. just remember to take the battery off when the light is green. And then plug it in and enjoy ! meaning you will have to do one more exchange.

Player does not recognize that a disk has been inserted

Hey again vmon,

If this isn't a behavior that the DVD player has exhibited in the past, you might be looking at a potential hardware failure instead. While some noise may be expected from any optical drive (DVD player, CR-ROM, etc.), it should be fairly consistent while the drive is in operation. Any kind of unusual "skipping," buzzing or grinding noise can often be an indicator that an internal component is out of alignment, or that the rotational mechanism in the drive has encountered a problem.

As such, you might want to discontinue using the player until you've had the chance to speak directly with a repair technician. Even if internal components have suffered failures from normal usage over time, there still can often be a risk of damage to any CD/DVD media used in the player until parts can be examined or replaced.

The only drawback to seeking repairs on devices like DVD/VCR players is that in many cases repair costs may exceed the purchase price of a brand-new player. If you aren't necessarily attached to this specific model, I'd suggest checking out your local retailer for pricing and availability of possible replacements. Most retailers should carry a fairly wide variety of makes and models, generally priced anywhere from around $80.00 to upwards of $300.00.

Again, hope this helps you out.

Go Ahead. Use Us.
