Over time the laser pickup becomes weaker until it is unable to read a disc. Try a dvd cleaning kit and follow instructions, or get a Q-Tip and rubbing alcohol and gently clean the lens, allow several minutes to dry. If this fails cheaper to replace the player.

I suggest to try with another disc. If that happens again, then try to clean lens with special disc. And if then won't help, then you'll need to change laser that reads discs. Usually it's not worth trying

Try a lens cleaner. Also, ensure that the disk you wish to play is clean and scratch free. Reset your player to factory defaults. If the problem persists, you may pursue service options through the place of purchase.

Try to run a disc cleaner in it first then if that doesnt help you may have a non repairable condition as ther is no repair places for these things. You can also try a different DVD and see if that makes a difference, a store bought DVD just to confirm things arent working properly..

Most likely your DC power supply input jack on the NS has cracked loose from where it's soldered onto the circuit board inside.

Insignia... | Answered on Nov 28, 2009

it will be a DC power supply normally so i would not plug direct in the mains.

normally there is a marking on the unit of required voltage also the white line is usually + and black -

and it could be anywhere from 12v onwards

best of luck.

You may have a problem with the transport of the dvd laser. Open the compartment that you place the dvd into. You will see the spindle,the laser lens and the transport device that moves it during operation. The transport system operates on system of gears and drive rails. You must check and clean the drive rails and gears. Use a can of compressed air and blow all the dust and debris from the dvd compartment. Then use some cotton swabs with a small amount of isopropyl alcohol on the tips and clean all the rails and gears. Check the transport action by moving the transport to its most outer position and back to its most inner position. The action and travel of the transport on the rails should be smooth and easy. The gears should be clean and move easy also.These parts will require cleaning every month or so . Remember do not touch the laser lens with your hand. You should also check the lens it should look bright and shine. If not try cleaning it with a cotton swab and a small amount of alcohol. Rub the lens gently back and forth unit it is bright and shines.Now you can try playing a dvd and see if the player works properly. If this does not fix you problem.
