Hello,

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.

Good luck.

PTID 5800 SCREEN SAVERS


yes, the solution is very simple and i dunnow why the manual doesnt mention it.

Try placing a jpg file of ur choice on the cd or dvd or usb flash memory, and choose it or just move the cursor on it, if u choose it(BY PRESSING ENTER) or as if u will play it, it becomes full screen, if u just place the cursor on it from the menu it will show as a small icon on the left of the soings menu of the MP3 file list.
Further more, if u place more than one file, and press enter on one, the PTID5800 will start a slide show! To pause one image, press pause(play) or zoom, u can even forward images and back them up using ffwd and reverse! it only accepts jpg, didnt accept GIF but sometimes it accepts BMP dunnow which ones, but to play it safe, stick to JPGs

Its illegal to watch a dvd/tv when the vehicle is moving so the manufacturer disables the function.. Usually by connecting a cable to your handbrake indicator or to your vehicle speed sensor VSS.
Youll have to find out which one it is. You can then find out how to disable it. JVC's normally ground the H/brake cable

Ignore the above comment... SD cards and USB play fine on there (i have one).
Mine does the same, but leave it for 5-10 seconds after it says close and it loads it up!
