Question about GPX D1816 DVD Player

1 Answer

I have a problem regarding my D1816 dvd player

I load a DVD into it, then it says "Loading.." for a couple of minutes, and then it says "Bad Disc" when the disc has no scratches or smudges on it. It happens with all of my DVDS. I have only used it once, and it worked fine, and then the next day it started with this problem and has been like it ever since...

Put in an audio cd and see if it will play music. If it does, you may be able to get a dvd/cd cleaner and run it to clean off a possible dirty lens.

I have a Ibm Thinkpad G40. It can´t read some discs but some discs it can read. It has a Toshiba DVD-rom SD C2612. Why can´t it read all discs? And how do I fix it?


Could be a lot of reasons
  • Disc's were corrupted during burning (CRC errors, etc) ---Can't fix
  • Could be a blue ray disc ---Get a blue ray player
  • Disc is damaged (scratches or smudges on the disc surface) --Clean smudges or get a disc repair kit for scratches
  • Optical drive could be flaking out (going bad) ---Replace the optical drive
Comment if you need additional assistance.

Disc says loading, then it stops and says no disc.


yes the reason is either the disc would have more scratch or the lens might have become weak... this is case for 99.9% for such prob

The dvd player says it is loading, but then


there are two solutions to that,
firstly open the dvd and check that the disc in side is turning round. if not check the servo control on the card. if it is turning then check the second solution.
secondly, check the senser bulb if its caming on when the disc is turning. this also can be replaced.
thanks finding from fixya.

When i load the dvd it states loaing but then after about 30 seconds states no disc. could it be that the laser is gone and can i get a new laser?


It is likely the laser is gone or the disc is really bad(scratches, smudges etc). New laser depends how old and part availability

DVD player will not play disc.


If you are loading a store bought DVD and that it what it say's. The transport needs to be replaced. roughly 150-200. If you are loading "burned" DVD's the format may be wrong and the unit cannot read it. Best suggestion I can give you is to first buy a "Laser Lens Cleaner" on that uses fluid. Any electronics store sells them for 15-20. Run it thru the unit a couple of times then try a clean, store bought DVD. If it plays, problem solved. With your DVD's, if you have any liquid car polish like mother's or meguiars, put a couple drops on the disc and spread around with your finger, let it set a couple then buff off with a microfiber towel. This works wonders for old scratched cd's and dvd's and helps protect new ones from getting scratched. As for the Lens cleaner, run it thru every product you have that uses discs 3 or 4 times a year, it's the best preventative maintance and only maintanance you can do on a CD player DVD or PC. Hope this helps

It cant read a dvd "no disc"


Check and make sure the laser eye is clean and clear of dust and smudges. With player OFF, blow across laser eye. Try cleaning with soft dry Qtip. Otherwise you probably have a bad laser drive or bad drive ribbon cable.

Game loading


  • Confirm the disc is inserted correctly into the PlayStation 2 console (label side should be facing up when the PlayStation 2 console is in the horizontal position).
  • Confirm the disc is clean. To clean a disc, use lint-free cleaning cloths made specifically for cleaning CD/DVD discs, sold at computer software stores. When cleaning the disc, we recommend starting from the innermost circle, and wiping out to the edge in a straight line. We do not recommend wiping in a circular motion, as it may create more scratches on the disc. [Note: Other materials, such as a paper towel or a T-shirt, may also scratch the disc. If there are any scratches, smudges, or fingerprints on the disc, it may not function properly.]
  • Try playing different CDs, DVDs, and games on the PlayStation 2 console to see if the problem exists across multiple discs.
  • To determine if the problem is with the disc itself, try playing the disc on a different PlayStation 2 console (or a PS oneTM or a standalone CD/DVD player, if applicable).
  • Confirm that you are not using any game modification devices. Unlicensed devices such as game modification devices can interfere with the proper function of the software. I do not recommend the use of any game modification devices or unlicensed products[1].

Loading...loading...loading...(10 minutes later)...no disc


I just fixed this problem. This will not fix any underlying problem, but it will get you up and running again. THIS MIGHT SCRATCH THE CD.
Unplug the unit. Remove the top cover. There are screws on the side and the back. Once you do you will see the dvd is not in correct position. Slide it around till you feel it drop into place. YES, YOU MAY END UP SCRATCHING THE CD. Plug the unit back in and it will eject.

For me the underlying problem is that the disc drawer closes while I am putting the cd in, causing it to not be seated properly. If anyone knows how to fix this .....
