    Have 3 of them and all have the same problem. Service Department says it's a common issue and warranty claims are very hard. Time to buy a different brand.

+ Try to fix your DVD player yourself before you hire someone else to. Many problems can be solved yourself, and many repairs are expensive. Many times it is cheaper just to purchase a new DVD player than to pay for repairs to an old one.
+ Try using a different DVD. It is possible that the DVD is faulty and the problem is not with the DVD player at all.
+ Do not touch the DVD player's lens with your finger. Try to clean it with a dry cotton ball or microfiber cloth. Using your fingers could leave fingerprints on the lens.

  1. Try to clean the disc if the DVD player says "No Disc." The disc might be simply be too dirty for the lens to read.
  2. Check your DVD picture settings if the screen seems squished or unbalanced. If your DVD player is set up for a widescreen movie and you are playing a movie with regular dimensions (or vice versa), the DVD player will squash or stretch the picture.
  3. Manually eject a DVD if your DVD player's DVD tray gets stuck closed. Gently insert a safety pin or paperclip into the DVD player's Eject hole, and the DVD player will open and eject the DVD.
  4. Clean your DVD player with a cleaning disc if your picture keeps freezing in the middle of a movie. Cleaning discs may be purchased anywhere that DVD players are sold. If this doesn't work, you may need to pay for a professional cleaning.
  5. Check the battery if your portable DVD player will not power on. It may simply be that the battery is dead or low. Try plugging your portable DVD player into a wall socket and see if it plays there. If so, try a new battery.
  6. Consult the store where you purchased your DVD player. They might have some troubleshooting techniques they can share with you.
  7. Check the manufacturer's Web site for your brand of portable DVD player. Most sites will have a troubleshooting section, and most questions have been asked before
Good luck.

The portable dvd player isn't spinning the disc and it isn't reading the disk it comes up with saying no disc even when there is a disc in the player

it could be that when you close the lid it does not press the switch that start the motor. <br /> if you see the disc spining maybe the laser head is not clean <br /> or the main board is broken <br /> If you want to fix the portable DVD write to me , <a href="mailto:[email protected]">[email protected]</a>

It won't press the button even though the power is on

Since you don't indicate what you mean by "won't work", let me provide a few possibilities:

1) You close the door and you can hear the DVD spin, but no reaction on the screen other than some type of "loading" message. This indicates that the optics are attempting to read the DVD but are having difficulties. The operation may ultimately be successful and the DVD may start, but the movie will be unwatchable because of freezes etc. In this case, try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. A dirty lens can cause this.

2) You close the lid and do not hear the DVD spin. In this case, the optics can not even determine that a disc is in the machine. Again attempt to clean the lens. If that fails to at least cause the disc to spin, the optics have failed and need to be replaced.

3) Try a music CD. If that plays OK, but a DVD does not, then the optics are defective and need to be replaced. DVDs require a more powerful laser and will typically fail sooner than CD levels.

Hope this helps,

I load the CD put I don't hear it spinning at all

No it isn't, because your switch isn't tripping when you close the DVD. Try holding the lid down with your hand and listen for spin. If your DVD starts spinning you will need to locate the plastic pin protruding from your lid and extend it with superglue and a piece of cardboard. This will make up for the warp in your lid, and allow the switch to close.

Disc will not load. When I put in a dvd the loading signal comes up. After a while a sign comes up " Cannot play this disc".

This will require a good clean on the inside, POWER OFF then remove the cover clean the plastic rack with rubbing alcohol and cotton bud.

If the DVD won't spin due to trapping inside the tray you will never be able to read the DVD check to see if the tray will insert and eject usinf the button,

NOTE : never push the tray to close this can cause the tray to jump its guide dogs leg which is used to lift he head to the DVD after it has been inserted.

I put an HD-DVD in my player but it keeps coming back out.

Temporarily you can hold the lid closed with your hand and press play and leave the lid after it loads the disc. But for permanent solutuion you will require to repair its lid switches,

Can't play dvd

Maybe your dvd got some capacitors dried on the power supply.
But you can also clean the laser lens maybe is dirty.

Sounds like something may be stuck inside the unit. If there is no warranty left, UNPLUG the device from the mains, undo the 2 or 4 screws on the sides of the unit, lift off the lid and just look to see if there is a foreign object inside or a DVD,(if at some point one of the kids put 2 Discs in and closed it, one of them could have got pushed over the top of the drive and got jammed), remove it and put the lid back on. Just make sure you don't touch or fiddle with any thing inside as not to damage it further.
Another possibility is that something is stuck to laser lens which you will only be able to see if you take the lid off.
DANGER WARNING do not take the lid off in the same room as the kids, or they WILL do it themselves, when you are not about.

DVD player isn't showing anything

do you hear movement inside like disc rotating, if so then the switch that closest lid is damaged. This is when you fold dvd down it hits this switch to turn monitor off. It could be damaged. If there is no noise or movement then power supply has damaged or batt dead and no power goes to it from power cord.

The drawer on the unit won't open.

When the DVD player is plugged into power and switched on, and won't power up (nothing shows up in the front display panel), the power supply unit in the DVD is blown. the noise that player made was probably a capacitor going off. You will have to get the unit repaired.

Unplug it, take the main cover off the unit and remove any disc stuck inside. Put the lid back on power it up and try again.
