Thios message indicates that the unit could not read the disc. The first thing to try is to gently clean the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that failes to resolve the problem, try playing a music CD. If the music CD plays, the optics are starting to fail. DVDs require more power to read than CDs.

It appears like the laser pick up Assembly is not longer reading the info from the DVDs.
I would suggest to use a lens cleaner to see if you can restore the DVD player functionality.
If the lens cleaner did not work, the lens or laser pick up is defective. This type of repair might cost you more then buying a new DVD player.

Then i think the lens is not able to read the disk.

and so i would suggest you to buy a disk cleaner CD and run it in your DVD player and then use your regular disks.

if this is not working then it is some internal fault in your DVD players lens.

Portable dvd player broken


You can get a cdrom cleaner kit and try that which may work. If that doesn't work you're stuck replacing it as the repair would cost more than the unit.

Says no disk


With the power turned off, open the DVD Player, and then open the top where you load the DVD into the player. Locate the laser lens and notice that the laser is attached to a transport assembly that moves the laser diagonally outward in a slot. 1. Slide this assembly outward to the end of its track. 2. Slide the assembly back inward to the closest inward position. 3. Repeat the process of sliding the assembly outward and then back inward.4. Put in a music CD and let it play all the way through. This helps to calibrate the laser head assembly movement. When the music CD is finished playing. 5. Put in a DVD, and you should have a working unit again This is a factory solution from Mintek that was given to a customer who ask for help with the forever loading disc problems. This solution may work on other models of portable DVD players. Most portable DVD players use this type of transport mechanism. Try this solution it might work for you. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

Likely to be a classic laser failure. It will require technical person to replace it - try starting with the point of sale and see about warranty etc

My coby portable dvd player keeps saying wrong disc


You may need to clean the laser in the unit. You can purchase a cleaning disk at Radio Shack or Best Buy. They are normally less than $20.

DVD Player that repeatedly says "no disk" when there is a disk in it


Same here. I've tried placing the DVD in a vertical position just to start and sometimes it works.

ribbon cable issue found with this device. look inside at the white ribbon cable. The cable likes to bunch in bewtween the spinning hub and the eye assembly, after time it may even develope a rub spot that will shut you down for good. If the cable is bunched up, try pushing it back into the bottom of the device and try again.
