When I put a disc in the DVD player the DVD spins, the red light comes on, then a couple of minutes later it says "no valid disc". The disc works fine in another DVD player. I have tried cleaning the lens and have tried pushing the little button by the play button under the cover also. Please help, my daughter is upset because her DVD player doesn't work and her sister's does. :)
Hi I had the EXACT same problem! Here is what I got from the Walmart Warranty site & I must say , it worked! I did all the steps and nothing but the part about sliding the lens assembly is what worked. Apparently it was stuck in the top of the dvd player, once I pulled it back to center, no problems.(this was for Durabrand DUR-7) good luck! Here's the email from them : Make sure the unit is in DVD Mode. Try cleaning the laser assembly. First, power off your machine. Find the laser eye located in the centre compartment. It is perfectly round, and made of glass with a bluish tint. To clean, moisten a good Q-Tip in rubbing alcohol (just a little), and gently swab just the glass lens, taking care not to soak it. Also try resetting the unit. Remove the power/batteries and then hit the power button 10-15 times and then try again. If you continue to have problems unfortunately it sounds as though it is within the electrical assembly. It is hard to say exactly what caused it or exactly what the problem with the circuits are. Try sliding the arm of the laser all the way in until it "clicked".
