Question about kawasaki PVS1965 Portable DVD Player

Invalid disc I have a kawasake dual screen portable dvd player. It was working great until just recently. Now when I turn on the dvd player, you can hear the dvd loading (and the screen says "loading") and then it stops. The screen then says "invalid disc". I have tried many different types of dvds (burned and not burned) with the same result. Help!Thank you!!

    Ours also says invalid disc. What causes this and how do I go about getting it fixed?

    Same issue. Screens work fine. Would buy a new dvd player, but manufacturers are going away from EZ-view cables.

    Exactly what everyone else has been experiencing, you can hear the disc spin but states no disc.

    Same problem. Working one day and not the next. Is this fixable?

  • EmmasDVD Feb 24, 2008

    The system was working great for over a year and then the system would not read DVDs. It says invalid disc. It reads CD's for music, but not DVDs. I tool the thing apart and could not see anything wrong.

If anyone found a fix for this can you please e-mail me.

    my problem is invalid disc problem will say loading then invalid disc

  • aps66 Feb 25, 2009

    Same thing. The screen indicates "Invalid disc" whenever we try it. For a while it was playing only a few minutes (enough to get to FBI warning) then the screen would breeze or turn black. Now we can't even get that...just invalid disc.

    My DVD player displays that it is loading but does not read that it has a disk in it. It displays "no valid disk". Anyone have ideas on how to repair? Thanks.

We had the "No Valid Disk" fault until I pushed the slide all the way to one end. Which ever is opposite. After doing this, install a disk and close the door. The slide will then move to the home switch and play the movie.

Other things to consider: make sure the disk is clean and no really bad scratches. Try other disks. Clean the DVD reader with a lens wipe. Blow the player out with canned air. Some copied movies will not work.

Player reading invalid disc and disc is not spinning

My dual screen dvd player was reading invalid disc and disc was not spinning. Took player completely apart and white gears had dirt in them. This was preventing the player from spinning. Used dust remover and cleaned the whole inside and now it works great.

Audiovox PVS69701 Dual Screen DVD player monitor has blue screen

I had the same problem, and it seems to be a short in the video cable between the two monitors. I can bend my cable until i see the second screen and then tuck it under the headrest. I am currently looking for a replacement cable. I see it at, but will also check the local radioshack since I need it quickly.

Dual portable dvd player second screen not working

Sounds like it may be a bad linking cable or connection. Make sure you have cables inserted firmly and correctly. If possible, hook main unit to TV to be sure you are getting proper Video/Audio output.
