NO DISK when disk is in. Initial DVD Player Model:IDM-9520

Have a Portable DVD Player. Initial Model: IDA-9520.
I have cleaned it.
I have used canned air to dust it out. The screen comes right up.
Says 'Loading' then 'No Disk', with any disk in the player.

    It's the exact same problem. I put the disk in, I hear whirring, then the error message, "No disk" comes up on my TV screen

Chances are the Laser that reads the disc has gone bad. It's usually cheaper to buy a new one instead of having it repaired.

I turned on the dvd player and them the screen came on and then immediately the screen went black and I cannot get the dvd player back. It is fully charges and I also tried to play using the dvd player...

This can be a faulty backlight bulb in the screen but more likely the screen inverter has developed a fault, replacing the inverter would probaly cure it or check the connections to the inverter for a dry joint and possibly reflowing the solder may also do it.
If your not sure what the inverter is then I would throw the player away and get a new one.

Hope it was the non-acetone type of polish remover - acetone will melt plastic !!

Invest in a laser eye cleaning disk - the kind with the tiny brushes.

OK what type of file format are the files in on the disk you are tying to play?

IDM-1731 does not like .AVIs.

Check your documentation as to what type of files your player can actually read and play.

Sorry I'm not more help.
