I bought a portable dvd player 3 months ago. It was working fine. About 2 weeks ago it just stopped reading any of my dvds. If I put in a dvd it just spins over and over like its trying to read and never identifies the disk, and then it says "error disk". Any suggestions please ??

Re: Problem with portable dvd player
I would return the item to your retailer as it should hold a 12 month warranty, as if it cannot read cds or dvd, the lens is faulty, and trying to repair it yourself will void your warranty.

Ive only had mine for 2 months and it just stopped playing dvds all together. I had a brand new dvd playing, went to switch it to another new dvd movie and it wouldnt read it or any other dvd Ive tried. I havent tried a blu ray disc yet.
1. Power ON the DVD player without a DISC inside 2. Press the skip keys in this order (the keys are under the "disc menu" and "stop"): right, left, right, left, right, right, left (YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO TO SETUP MENU, just do this in the "blue screen". 3. It will show a menu with region, now use the arrow keys to select "region" and change to "test 0" (all regions). 4. Press OK to confirm. Enjoy Silmara
dvds and cd's have new format out now for anti piracy you have to go out and buy new dvd drive 8 months ago bought a dvd player not just a month ago found out they changed the formats on dvd's and cd's this cant be changed or modified
My friend suggested I clean the dvd optical reader lens inside the player with a fine brush (like a camera brush with a blower bulb). This seemed to help immensely. I'm not certain if this is just a temporary fix, but it seems to be ok so far.
