Dvd cleaning Hi, Thanks for your suggestion. I will try. You suggested putting rubbing alcohol on que tips  then cleaning the capsten. What are que tips? are they like cotton buds for cleaning ears? Is the capsten the largest round wheel thing, which is silver on my camera,  or the round rod with a sort of black rubber coat? thanks Valley

Yes, cotton buds for cleaning ears.

yes that is the capsten. be careful in apptlying the alcohol, gently blow the surface where you ahve applied the alcohol to, to make it dry quicker.

Delta unisaw stops running

Probable overheating problem. Take it apart clean it and put it back together. Sawdust still can get into the machine and becomes an insulator which in this case keeps the heat in. Take caution cleaning around the electrical areas. I suggest using rubbing alcohol in combination with que-tips for electrical parts. If it is just overheating and there has been no lasting damage caused this should fix the problem. There probably has not been any lasting damage caused by this issue if you have never smelt anything burning but for extra reassurance when you open it look at the sawdust before cleaning for burnt marks.

Well at least the search light stop blinking but now i need to clean the player . what do you recommend that i use . this MAXELL cd cleaner with the little brush on it seems to make it worse. what should...

I suggest trying the maxell cleaner you have but wipe some rubbing alcohol on the brush first.
If that doesn't work, you have to open up the unit, and GENTLY clean the lens with a q-tip and rubbing alcohol being sure to dry the lens after with the other end of the q-tip.

I have a portable 7" dvd player PDM-0743. When I insert discs it says "bad disc". I have tried several discs and it says the same.

First thing-- try a disc drive cleaner (available at electronics stores) OR if you can see the laser lens when you open the tray you can clean it with a Que-tip and some rubbing alcohol.
If that doesn't work, let me know.

It can not read the disc. I get "error no disc" I have tried several, including new.

Try cleaning the laser lens with a either a special cleaner from an electronics store, or a Que-tip with some rubbing alcohol.

With DVD in slot, loads, then instructs to put a DVD in the drive

Sounds like the drive isn't quite able to read the disk. I recommend cleaning the laser lens with a Que-tip and rubbing alcohol. That might require taking it apart to get at the lens. Otherwise I think there are special disk shaped cleaning devices you can buy at like Radio Shack that can also do the trick.

Will not read dvds

clean the lens with a dvd/cd lens cleaner (walmart, radio shack, etc.). or if you're feeling adventurous, remove the top, remove the dvd shuttle cover, and clean the lens with a q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol. wip it off gently ad blow it dry with your mouth (as opposed to a hair dryer). the alcohol will evaporate. put it together and try it out. if it still doesn't read, you may need to replace the optical pickup (lens and motor).
