Question about Venturer PVS1950D Car DVD Player

1 Answer

DVD player plays some dvd's but not others. It takes a long time to load & then either doesn't play or freezes up at different times. Someone told me that the lazer could be getting weak. Is this a possibility, and if so, what should I do? Can I replace the dvd deck?

Hello Danabelle, The person who told you this is somewhat correct. Over time components tend to weaken and this is true for the laser in your DVD player, however you should not dismiss the fact that what you possibly could do is clean the laser. I would suggest that you go the a store that sells DVD cleaning equipment which should consist of a lens cleaning solution, and cleaning swabs (a fiber optic cleaning kit would work great here)now, to clean the lens you will have to open the unit so as to expose the lens which is the glass looking object near the DVD locking spindle. follow the kit instructions as to cleaning. (I do not recommend a DVD cleaning disk unless it is the brushless type.). Now once the DVD lens has been cleaned try to paly a DVD that formerly had a problem. If it plays you solved the issue. However if this does not solve the problem. The lens may have to be aligned and/or the carriage has to be cleaned. That procedure is a little involved and could lead to damage if not done correctly. If cleaning does not help, you should take the unit to a repair shop or find a shop on fixya that can do this for you. Please let me know if cleaning works. Thank you, Shuttle83

Player won't play legally imported DVD's

Hi, guessing you are from the UK? Different countries operate different regions for dvd's for instance the UK dvd players are set up to play region 2 discs, and US dvd players are set up to play region 1 discs.
This is because dvd release dates are different around the world and this stops people buying a dvd in the US and bringing it back to the UK and selling it before its official UK release date for example.
Your choices are either to play the dvds on a PC where often the dvd software will allow you to change region a number of times (be careful though as some players will let you change region say 5 times and then be locked to that region)
Or to get hold of or buy a multi region dvd player which plkays dvd'd regardless of their original region
Hope that makes sense, good luck

DVD will play for a short time and then freeze.

Get VLC

Then try and playback the dvd , also check on the dvd to see if there are any scratch marks or dirty marks ie finger prints etc , if there is , obviously clean the disc, if not get a disc cleaner for your dvd drive / dvd player and then try again afterwards.

Also try a different dvd and see if that makes any difference

Freeze up on DVD

Hi vaffl I read your symptom this morning and it sounds like you might have a tracking problem. In order to confirm this problem remove the top cover. I would start by measuring the power supply voltages. Load a disc in the player and press play. See if there is any change in the voltage levels durring the time that the player starts acting up. Sometimes a faulty voltage regulator will cause this problem. I hope this helps you. Bruce
