Dirty lenses on the drive can cause this, no signal comes back to the laser, so it thinks there is no disk
especially with kid fingers and a flip open case,
iso-propyl alcohol on a swab removes fingerprints, jelly, cake, and all sorts of stuff from a lens, vaccuum cleaners are good if its just dust

    the disk not spinning is the problem, causing no read, that wasnt mentioned in the op so there is a different repair

    there is something stuck in or under the spindle preventing the motor from bringing the disk up to speed, the seizure could have fried the motor.

    Thin flexible plastic, I use margarine container lids cut to points, is usefull as it can often be slid under the drive spindle without disassembling the drive and flick the cookie crumbs out.

    unless there are cookie crumbs under the actuator that moves the lens to the start position (center) then follows the data track out -

    Im stumped,

    Have had good results with fish tank air hose attached to the vaccuum cleaner for access to small holes

    The drive typically looks something like this opened

I have a coby vzon that says wrong disc but reads cds then when cleaned and blown loads up mp2 instead of dvd or says wrong disc still please help.

All DVD players use a dual laser pick up. One laser is for CD/VCD/MP3 and the other laser is only for DVD. If you have watched more DVD and less CD's you could be having a problem with the DVD laser. Must have become week and the system cannot read the disk. Change of the lens unit will solve your problem.

Coby DVD shows Invalid Disc HELP PLEASE

Did you make the disk if you made the disk your computer has to give it a digital signature so the DVD player can read it if you're using a regular DVD then I would very carefully using rubbing alcohol and Q tip clean the actual laser I would be very careful doing this if too much rubbing alcohol is on the Q tip it will ruin the laser you can also try resetting the DVD player by taking out the battery and unplugging it from any power source and leave it that way for at least 20 seconds to a minute if that doesn't work you might have something else wrong

The player will play commercial disk but will not read blanks to record

the problem is that your portable dvd player is not a recorder. its just a player that is capable of reading already recorded dvd's.

Coby TF-DVD7100 7" portable flat screen...keep getting "Wrong Disc" Error

I have seen this problem on several Yamada & Xoro brand DVD players. If you remove the lid after powering down with the disc tray closed and a disc in it you may well find the ribbon cable to the read head is rubbing on the disc. The ribbon cable is held to the base of the box by a sticky pad under a 45 degree bend in it and a piece of sticky tape !!!. Power up unit, open disk tray, power it down, retape cable to base securely with small strips of duct or gaffer tape (using tweezers helps) and hey presto it will work again. The cable rubbing slows the disk spin speed hence "data read error" unit assumes "bad/faulty/wrong type of disk". All that technology screwed up by using a cheap bit of tape in the factory assembly, amazing eh !.

Why black and white????

Black and White on all discs? Display controller or cable to LCD. Replacement is cheaper than the parts.
