    DISC DOES NOT SPIN. BY PUSHING THE DISC IT REVOLVES FEW TIMES AND STOPS.

    LASER PICKUP SEEMS TO BE SEARCHING, BUT THE DISC WILL NOT REVOLVE. I CLEANED THE LASER LENS TO NO AVAIL.

    IS THE LASER PU NG. IS IT WORTH TO BUY A NEW PICKUP?

    PLEASE ADVISE.

Cdfreeze, DVD drives spin up the platter and attempt to read from it. If the read fails, they stop spinning the drive. So, I think the problem you have is that the device won't read. DVD drives have some very small plastic pieces that can break and cause failure. They also have a read head that can get out of alignment. If you're ambitious, look at the drive and see if you can find any other damage. Don't run the drive open, though, because there is invisible laser that can blind you (there should have been a warning on the top of the drive when you opened it). I checked eBay and this DVD player sells for under $20 (including shipping), so don't spend too much time on it. Definitely let me know if you have questions or comments.

When loading a dvd it displays, "NO DISK". Is it


Hello
There are mainly three motors for most of the DVD players. One to spin the disc we insert in, other to load the laser pickup unit to-and-fro inside it to read the disc and an other one to load the tray mechanism 'in-out'. According to your description, the disc spins inside, and you can hear its spin. So motor which spins the disc has no trouble at all I should say. Then comes to the second motor that moves the laser assembly inside it. If it do not work, the laser pickup unit won't move and no reading will take place and 'No Disc' display will be the result. The last chance is with Laser Pickup Unit itself. Just get this unit repaired by any well experienced service technician or by the authorised service center, because, there are special tools to open this unit. As it is a compactable one, more care should be given to it while repairing. Suspect the second motor I described earlier, and the Laser Pickup Unit. OK.

Dvd feeding problem


The reason you are having trouble with DVD's and not CD's is that the DVD's are a little thicker or taller than the CD's. The area above the belt system has to be adjusted upward. this adjsutment is not in the manual, and is complicated. My company, Techware DIstribution, has had as many as 20 of the PF-1 and PF-2 printers running in our production and demo room. We can walk you through the steps to make the adjustment if you like.

Audiovox MVDVD4


Just stumbled upon this as I was searching for a new MVDVD4 and thought it might help you out!! :

When the van was a little over 3 years old, the DVD player suddenly quit working. I would put in a DVD, the player made some noises like it was trying to read the DVD, then the display would say "NO DISK".

As it was out of warranty and I have a background in electronics, I opened the player. After playing around for a little while, I was able to fix the player real easily. If you have the same problem (and the player is out of warranty), open up the DVD player by removing the screws and breaking the seal. I blew out the inside with compressed air, but I doubt this made a difference. The problem was that the DVD was not spinning. The spinning mechanism under the DVD tray was not starting like it should. I carefully sprayed a couple drops of WD-40 (well actually Remington's Rem Oil) where the metal rod the spinner sits on goes into the motor mechanism that spins it (it will make sense when you look inside. It is where the little metal rod goes into the plastic casing). After a couple of drops of oil, the player worked fine again.

Bad Disk


If you find that the DVD is not spinning it might means that the the "spinner" is not functioning, the sound you hear is the laser moving up and down trying to read your DVD but since is not spinning it can not read it. You will need to replace the small motor that operates the spinner, after extensive use they just give up. I hope this is helpful enough.

Portable DVD player not spinning says no disc


Check to see if the disc is spinning. You can do this by one of two ways either
  • a:) Listen for the disc to spin after inserting it or
  • b:) Place disk in drive right way up (so that the label is not upside down). Load the disc and eject the disc again to se if the disc has moved i.e. the writing may now be upside down.
If the disc does not spin then it is likely that there is something wrong with the disc motor. If it does spin then the issue is more likely to be with the laser unit. Try cleaning the lens but if this doesn't help it's likely to be a more serious and ultimately more expensive problem.

Hope this helps

After trying to read a disc it says cannot read


I had the exact same problem - I bought this DVD player TODAY at a garage sale for 5 bucks, they said it wouldn't read the disc, so I looked it up and found this thread. I did what that other person did, in that I had a DVD loaded into the player, then I took the top off. The DVD worked perfectly! I actually didn't even have to touch anything inside. I then put the top back on, making sure not to tighten the screws too hard. I think what it was is that this is a very slim unit, and there really isn't much room for the motor to spin the DVD, especially if there is even a 1 millimeter bend in the casing - it prevents the DVD from spinning around. I would reccomend never putting anything on top of this DVD player.
