Re: Still not working
Is it possible for you to see the lens while the disc in on the platform or turntable while its tring to see the disc?? if you can manage this see if the lens moves up and down . If it does then the units trying to focus but cannot. as it needs to focus on the surface of the disc to reconize the disc or to start it spinning. If its trying to but dosent it could be the spindle motor or the control curcuit, the laser its self but not likely as alot of repair peeps blame the pickup assy but motre then 3/4 that are returned for warrantee replacements have been found not to be defective, the turntable could have slipped down, or it needs a foucus offset or focus gain alighnment. In any case your gonna need to probably take this to a good audio repairperson to see what the treue problem is. Good Luck

Without pulling the error codes I can't give you a firm cause, but the most common reason you get erratic error messages is a failure of the aperture unit in the lens (or sometimes the IS unit). They are connected to the back of the lens circuit board by flexible circuits, and as you zoom them back and forth you get cracks in the flexes, like you used to get with the old point and shoot AF film cameras
Yes, the lens can be disassembled and cleaned. But before you think about doing so, think about this. Do you have a lens collimator and other equipment necessary to ensure proper alignment on reassembly? If you don't, please leave inside cleaning to a trained professional.
Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can try that may (or may not) correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try. Some of the later steps do involve some risk to the camera, so carefully weigh your options before deciding to conduct them:
I was having the same problem with my pvd-702...I genlty cleaned the lens with a dap of alcohol on a q-tip. I blew the lens so it was dry and the dvd player started working. No need to try to call the 1-800 number, it is disconnected and the warranties are not valid, because the address does not exist. try the q-tip, it worked for me.
