My dvd player was working fine this morning and now it's not reading discs. What can I do to fix this or do I need to buy a new dvd player? It is a Dual Deck DVD/VCR Player MVD4544 model

Good day!

This are the common and basic causes reading disc failure of DVD players.Try this D.I.Y procedure before you buy a new player.
  1. Check the CD itself.If the CD got many scratches,replace it.
  2. Clean the DVD lens using CD cleaner.
  3. Try to use other new CD or the one with no scratch.
  4. If the steps # 1 to 3 are not successful.The problem could be on DVD lens.
  5. If the DVD lens is defective you better to buy a new player.Because the lens is expensive and it is not easy to install on DVD player.

I hope this information will be helpful.Thank you and good luck.

Screen says it is loading the dvd, but then wont play. Eventually says cannot play dics. Tried several discs.

good day sir
that is a common problem of all DVD...there's a D.I.Y. for that,, try to clean the lens by using cotton buds and remember don't any chemical compound just cotton buds only
or you can use a CD cleaner to clean the lens,,
and the last is when cleaning is not effective it means the DVD lens is defective need to replace a new one if you will
or give to the expert technician because replacing the lens is very difficult because it have a proper alignment...thank you and good luck

My kid broke the blue optical lens in Sony DVP-FX930 Portable DVD Player. Can i replace the optical lens part from any other dvd drives or is it unique to sony. Please advice.

Portable DVD players are made up of the dvd mechnism, control motherboard and LCD panel. You can buy a defective Sony unit on ebay for parts and replace the dvd mechanism assembly.

Most defective portable dvd players are defective on the control motherboard, just read the defects disclosed on ebay items to decide which one to buy to fix yours.

I get a no disc error and so far blowing air in it has not helped

It sounds optical laser lens is dirty and need cleaning.
Put lens cleaning disc in player and press play, disc will spin and might clean lens to solve the issue.
If that does not fix the problem, unplug player from wall socket, take off top cover and clean lens with good quality cotton bud gently and then check does it play disc. If problem still exist then optical lens got defective and need to be replaced. Local tv repair shop will replace it but replacement would cost you much.
Hope these info will help you.

The DVD loads but it won't play

Does the player plays Audio CD or VCD apart from DVD discs?

How long have you been using the DVD Player and did it give any sign before it stopped playing DVD discs?

All attention now should go to the lens. The questions above would determine whether the fault is from the lens or not.

Maybe the lens is very weak and that's why it cannot play DVD discs.

You could try cleaning the lens if it would make any difference, but if cleaning the lens does not make any difference, then the lens needs to be replaces.

For the lens to be replaced, you need to take it to a Qualified technician to do it for you.

Best wishes.

I have a Zenith DVP615 Portable DVD Player when i put a disk in it says check disk but will not play, the disks are fine but no play.


In this case maybe you have defective Ribbon wire or defective Lens,.

ok Please clean the lens with 100% cotton first, if not reading after you clean the lens, kindly replace the ribbon wire, then test run, if not reading again replace the lens you have defective lens..

Rca portable dvd player model drc6318e doesnt not load dvd. says no disc. how do i fix that?

first you must check if your portable loads cd or mp3. If it loads cd or mp3 the defect is lens and this should be replace by an expert. If both cd,mp3 and dvd didn't load you check first the ribbon wire for signs of disconnection and foldings and then replace it. If still your portable didn't work the most probable defect is MPEG board.To distinguish if MPEG or lens defect in lens shows malfunction such as not reading dvd but reading mp3 or cd, unwanted stop of play even with a good dvd.

My daughters GoVideo DVD player always says CHECK DISC!

If no disk is detected it means that the lens are dirty or defective.
If the lens cleaner disk, or using Qtips and alcohol did not work, then the lens pickup or the disk drive must be replaced. this involves precision soldering and must be done by a technician. Regards.
