I have a coby portable dvd player. lately when i put a disk in it says "wrong disc" i know for sure that this disk is ok, more over it says that to any other disc i put in. what can be the problem?
Had same thing, was the holder that the dvd snaps into....it seems to slip downward on the shaft and making the disc to close to the eye. carfully work the carrier back up and no more error, works great!
I've been having this problem too.
I tried turning it off and then on, unplugging it, changing DVDs, and using the factory default. Nothing worked.
AND THEN! I took the disc out and unplugged it for ten seconds.
Now it is working.
So just unplug it for a minute without a DVD in the drive.

Re: my portable dvd says "wrong disc"
Your problem is either the laser Diode has faulted OR perhaps the Lens is "Dirty" it can be cleaned with a special "Cleaning Disk" but I would think unfortunately that the laser assembly has gone faulty, a common problem unfortunately :(

All DVD players use a dual laser pick up. One laser is for CD/VCD/MP3 and the other laser is only for DVD. If you have watched more DVD and less CD's you could be having a problem with the DVD laser. Must have become week and the system cannot read the disk. Change of the lens unit will solve your problem.
The DVD portable player and the DVD disc came from the same countries?Ur DVD portable player and DVD disc u are using might have the wrong region DVD disc format frequencies.Like PAL frequencies only play Euroupean,Asia,Middle East,Austriala and Africa products.NTSC frequencise play only USA,Canada and Mexico DVD Disc products.
Did you make the disk if you made the disk your computer has to give it a digital signature so the DVD player can read it if you're using a regular DVD then I would very carefully using rubbing alcohol and Q tip clean the actual laser I would be very careful doing this if too much rubbing alcohol is on the Q tip it will ruin the laser you can also try resetting the DVD player by taking out the battery and unplugging it from any power source and leave it that way for at least 20 seconds to a minute if that doesn't work you might have something else wrong
you can reset the settings through the menu, its under the advanced option in the menu. however, its not a regional error, if it was in the wrong region, it would say wrong region and not wrong disk, try putting the region back to 1 or 0 or 9, 1 is USA, 9 and 0 are all regions.

Unfortunately, your DVD player is broken. Portable units like these often get bumped and jostled and the motor that spins the DVD quits (very small and fragile). Sorry, I wish there were a magic button.
