Question about Durabrand DUR-1700 Portable DVD Player
I have had this DVD player for two years now and it worked fine until last summer. The issue is that it constantly says open and I hear no movement in the motor which reads the disc. I dont wanna buy another one if this one can be fixed. What is causing the player to display the "open" even when lid is closed completely?
Hello, There are really only things that can cause that problem, either the microswitch inside has failed which tells the processor that the drawer has closed, or the processor itself has failed. If you have some experience working on electronics, you can open the unit and see if the drawer is contacting the switch, and if so meter the switch to see if it has gone bad, otherwise, I would recommend replacing it, as you can do some home laser surgery to yourself if you open the unit and look at the laser. We have bought Durabrand sold at Walmart, it is normally not expensive to replace, and actually going by the one I bought my son, it has held up well. Good luck, I hope the info helps.
