Question about Venturer PVS8380 Player
The problem is in the laser pickup assembly, overtime the laser becomes weaker until it can not read the disc. The only option is to gently clean the laser lens with a Q-tip and rubbing alcohol and allow several minutes to dry, if this fails, cheaper to buy new than repair.

The solution for your problem will be needing a little knowledge with electronic repair and hands on.Most common problem for portable DVD player is their 1) Spindle motor the 2) flex cable ( tin ribbon wire connecting the optic lens and the main board)
note: to check if your spindle motor is working good, you must measure it's resistance and it should be around 200ohms.
For the flexcable all you have to do is check the continuity.

SOURCE: "Wrong Disc" error message
I work for COBY tech support. Our customer service phone number is 1-800-727-3592.
Unfortunately, if you're getting that error message on every disk you try to play, it means the player has developed a problem in the dvd mechanism. This can't be repaired.
The warranty is 90 days from the day of purchase. A receipt would be required for warranty exchange.
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.

Sounds like a build up of dust on the lens.
2 options -
Either buy a DVD lens cleaner
Note DVD LENS cleaner, NOT DVD Cleaner the latter is for the discs, not the player
or second option is to remove lid from your player (usually 5 or 6 screws) and gently swab the lens with a cotton bud or similar soft lint free product. Try not to push too hard on the lens or you may damage the mechanism.
The lens is really obvious as it faces upwards and looks like a small round clear glass bead.
Make sure its unplugged too!
