Hello mark85,

I posted this some time ago but I think it can help you, so here it goes:

You can try a cleaning disk, however it has been my experience that the cleaning disk will not help, but it is a good place to start from. More then likely it is a problem with the laser pickup photo-transistor, these often malfunction causing this problem. I would suggest if you are going to try to repair this yourself, you will need a multimeter, a laser meter, and a schematic. The first step is to measure the laser energy leaving the laser diode and see if it matches the specifications in the schematic, if it does not, check the bias voltage with the multimeter, this is to determine if the problem is the bias voltage or the diode itself. If the diode is bad replace it. if the diode is good then the pickup becomes suspect. Using the multimeter measure the bias voltage on the photo-transistor with and without the presence of the laser light from the diode. This will tell you if the photo-transistor is good or bad, if the transistor is bad replace it , if it is good check the components that make up the biasing circuitry.

Now This test will produce a test of go or no-go on the laser diode and the photo-transistor. One of these components or their related biasing circuitry is either bad or about to go bad, by testing the voltages and laser light levels you should be able to determine which one or if both have a problem.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

I would take it back to the store, there is a malfunction in the laser pickup assembly, and there is nothing can be done to correct it, a manufacture defect.

Audiovox D1020 DVD player won't read DVD anymore


I have the same problem! The only way to fix this is to replace the motor that spins the DVD. if you take it apart and spin the DVD the movie will play. The motor is just wore out and has no torque to start the play process. I am still looking for a replacement motor for it and haven't found anyone that carries the motor required. Only Audiovox so far and they want 180 to send in and fix.

Stops Playing: screen freezes


My friend suggested I clean the dvd optical reader lens inside the player with a fine brush (like a camera brush with a blower bulb). This seemed to help immensely. I'm not certain if this is just a temporary fix, but it seems to be ok so far.

DVD stopped playing all DVDs


Reset you player by doing the following:
With the player on, hooked properly to your television, and on the correct station:
Open the tray
Close the tray (with no DVD inserted)
Hold the stop button down for a full 5 seconds
The CyberHome screen should appear. You should be able to play your dvd's now.

DVR 120 Disc/Screen freezes half way through


CD does not run
Clean lens and adjust the disk level
Not spinning disc
If it spins with a little help from yourself replace the spindle motor with improved motor, part number: RXQ0749A
This fault would only occur on c.d play back. The sound would gradually start to distort, until all that could be heard was complete distortion. This fault was intermittent and would occur whenever it felt like
Believe it or not,this fault was cured by replacing the optical unit

DVD PLAYER NOT READING DISC


Well I have been repairing dvd players a while now and the main problem spots are laser ,spindle motor, laser tracking motor and the biggest culprit and un suspecting one the lens cable .....most of them range from the lens cable to the spindle motor though... the constant movement of the lens in watching a whole movie causes the cable to unknowingly and slowly break and if the spindle motor is defective ,on inserting a dvd the disc spins slowly and you may hear the lens chirping ... so you can check those....

Reading but DVD is not spinning in portable dvd player


Some suggestions assuming you know you're using good discs, and have this problem with more then 1 disc. In anything that requires you to open the player and play around in it, I also assume you're not too akward with electronics, and out of warranty: spindle motor problems - you could either fix that by changing the motor, or occasionaly by dropping a little bit of 3 in 1 oil on the shaft. Just dont start it as a hobby if you can still go complain at the store... Good luck
