This might be caused due to dust setting on the lens of the sensor, which  is used to read the disc. You could easily clean the lens by opening up the unit and using a small amount of rubbing alcohol.

Another problem which some users seems to face, is that the spinner which is at the center of the DVD tray, moves down after using the player for a while. This causes the distance between the disc and sensor to change. This might result in erroneous reads. A possible solutions would be to adjust the position of the spinner by moving it up (or down) a bit. Do this temporarily and if it works, use super glue to make sure that the spinner does not move about.

2 symptoms; don't know if they're related or not. For some time now, when trying to watch a movie on my small screen Coby Portable DVD player, it will play just fine for about half the movie, then...


I'm sorry that the DVD player is not playing discs are expected. Based on the information you have provided, it appears that the Lens head of the DVD player is dirty. I suggest that you use a lens cleaning disc to clean the lens head and it should resolve the issue.

Thanks for understanding.
Please let me know if the issue persists.

I have an older DVD player. COBY DVD-404. I downloaded pictures from my camera to my computer onto a DVD-R disc and then again onto a DVD+RW disc. Neither disc would play on my player. It comes up on...


Your 'old' DVD player is the problem. It is unable to 'read' picture files. Time to put the COBY away and upgrade to a DVD player that can read .jpg, .jpeg images. Most new players do and they are not that expensive.

Coby DVD shows Invalid Disc HELP PLEASE


Did you make the disk if you made the disk your computer has to give it a digital signature so the DVD player can read it if you're using a regular DVD then I would very carefully using rubbing alcohol and Q tip clean the actual laser I would be very careful doing this if too much rubbing alcohol is on the Q tip it will ruin the laser you can also try resetting the DVD player by taking out the battery and unplugging it from any power source and leave it that way for at least 20 seconds to a minute if that doesn't work you might have something else wrong

Coby TF-DVD7100 7" portable flat screen...keep getting "Wrong Disc" Error


I have seen this problem on several Yamada & Xoro brand DVD players. If you remove the lid after powering down with the disc tray closed and a disc in it you may well find the ribbon cable to the read head is rubbing on the disc. The ribbon cable is held to the base of the box by a sticky pad under a 45 degree bend in it and a piece of sticky tape !!!. Power up unit, open disk tray, power it down, retape cable to base securely with small strips of duct or gaffer tape (using tweezers helps) and hey presto it will work again. The cable rubbing slows the disk spin speed hence "data read error" unit assumes "bad/faulty/wrong type of disk". All that technology screwed up by using a cheap bit of tape in the factory assembly, amazing eh !.

Wrong disc problem


This is a known problem - there is no fix - if you call coby customer service they will tell you to try a dvd lens cleaner -this will not fix the problem. Best advise - throw it away.

Dvd player will not spin disk


Unfortunately, your DVD player is broken. Portable units like these often get bumped and jostled and the motor that spins the DVD quits (very small and fragile). Sorry, I wish there were a magic button.
