Question about Televison & Video

This is a Durabrand DVD portable player and will not read the disc. "no disc" I was wondering if there is a repair center that fixes such players. I am all thumbs and have no desire to tackle the problem myself. I live in Arkansas, so is there a repair center in my state?? Also is it worth sending it in for repair??

It is up to you if you wish to submit the player for repair to a service centre. Personally, since Durabrand is a cheap DVD player (retailed new for less than $50), it would be cheaper and easier to simply buy a new player - rather than spend good money on repairs to this one (a product recall was issued on the Durabrand DVD-1002 model a couple of years ago).

In any event, the 'No disc' error refers to the laser which has failed. Not economical to repair as it is a 'budget' model.

When i put a disc into my portable dvd player it says cannot read disc... it will read cd's but not dvd's do i need to replace the lens?


Try using a DVD cleaning disk in the player first. If this does not fix the problem. The chances are that the calibration is off and you will have to have it serviced at a repair center. How old is the unit, what is the model number and where are you located?

Portable durabrand dvd wont read disc


If it is reading a burned movie from the internet make sure you set you brun software for captability mode.

If this is a orginal disk make sure its free of dust and scratches.

1. buy a lens cleaning kit from walmart or any other eletronics store.
2. Make sure the disc is free of scratches.
3. change disc's and see if it works on any others.

if these steps do not help then the laser would need to be replaced. Durabrand is a Wal mart brand i had mine for 2 years and i had to clean the lens 3 times with a cleaning kit.

Thanks

Displays "No Disc"


It can be several reasons
1. Disk is upside down
2. Lens is durty. CD/DVD cleaning disk will help
3. Disk is in different formate (for instance NTSC for US but you trying to playback disk in PAL)
4. Disk has different region code (look is the dvd player and disk have the same code, or ALL Regions code)
Good Luck

Dvd reading


I had the same thing happen to a used DuraBrand 7" Portable DVD Player. Check and see if the laser transport is locked in at the top of the track -- which would be in position to read the outer edge of the DVD. The laser transport gets locked into this position and you get "no disc" error messages.

I removed the bottom of the DVD player -- a matter of seven screws -- and moved the laser transport by hand nearer to the center post of the DVD turntable. This cured the problem and my DuraBrand is working fine now.

I have no idea what makes the laser transport move to the extreme outer position and get locked there, but this solution works. Good luck with your own.

Durabrand DUR-7 portable DVD player


Hi,

Most DVD players that would display such a message even with a known good disc inside signifies that the that the laser eye/lens is not reading the disc. This could probably be attributed to:
1. dirty, damaged, inverted, blank, un-finalized burned CDs or DVDs;
2. defective, weak burned-out laser eye/lens;
3. defective slider shafting (where the laser eye's carriage moves.

A few things you can try:
1. Use a CD cleaner (readily available from most computer shops);
2. use a can of compressed air and blow through the inside of the loaded disc area;
3. gently tap on the top cover where you estimate the reading/laser eye/lens would be;
4. gently press on the tray door once the disc is loaded.

Should this not be corrective, perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional such as those in a Service Center. Alternately, your friendly neighborhood electronic shop should do just fine.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kindest regards.

Is it the correct type of disc? Whilst these devices will play almost all 'commercial' disks In many cases 'burned disks' Cumputer Data disks and audio disks are a No No The manual/packaging will tell you which. You could try a Lazer cleaner disk. Failing that it looks as if the device is failing and needs replacing - I doubt if there is a repair option.
