Audiovox MD1988 portable DVD player not spinning

We have an Audiovox MD1988 portable DVD player that seems to have overheated and now will not spin the DVDs. My husband took it apart and thinks the motor is working because it spins the DVD for about 5 seconds.. Maybe a belt. He's very good with fixing things, so any ideas would be welcome.

Overheated?Inside the car with sun directly on it or electrical overheat? In the car-Carry it in the house let it cool to room temp.Open the tray and dry it. You may have experienced a change in temp .Like from hot car to cold indoors.Then use the power adapter,it will run.If it is from ilectrical forget it.

No longer loading dvds


You may have a bad laser. First, make sure the laser assy. travels back and forth easily, then make sure the table the disc sits on spins freely. If it still isn't reading, load a disc and immediatly flip it over to it's top and see if it works. Working or not, still a bad laser.

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.

Portable dvd player will play music cds but not video dvds


Chances are, your DVD player uses one laser to read CDs, and a different laser to read DVDs (since Cds and DVDs are read at different wavelenghts of light). If the DVDs you're trying to watch work properly in other DVD players, it probably means that the DVD laser is dirty, damaged, or burned out. Though you can try cleaning the laser (use Google for suggestions on how to do this, or check the Audiovox website), you will most likely have to get the DVD player repaired, or buy a replacement. Many of the newer CD/DVD players sold today use a single combination laser, which reads both CDs and DVDs, which means that when the laser fails, it will not work at all. Wish I had better news for you, but I guess that the only consolation you have is that your Audivox player still works with CDs...
