By: Jerry Gazila
There are numerous DVD player brands on the market, right? So we repairers should arm ourselves with the necessary skills that would help us troubleshoot and extensive range of DVD player brands and not merely LG alone.
For this purpose, I would firmly recommend a universal type of DVD player repair guide. This type of guide is ideal as precise reference for fixing all kinds of brands including Sony, Panasonic, Pioneer, Samsung, Toshiba, LG, whatever. Such valuable repairing reference can be acquired through the following link.
Since we have a little more space here, I can share with you a couple of LG DVD player troubleshooting techniques and tips for your benefit. Just remember not to work too hard okay? If you feel tired, better put down the tools on your work bench and get some rest immediately. Tired body and mind can lead to carelessness and accidents.
Recently I was troubleshooting an LG DVD player which won’t turn on. So I cracked open the DVD player and then performed a thorough inspection on the power supply. True enough the player couldn’t run because the fuse was practically decimated!
Hate the open fuse issue which is actually pretty common and fairly easy to fix. The standard procedure is to take your multi-meter and give the affected fuse a quick test. Low ohm setting is what I would use and I pay full attention to the buzzing sounds. You see if the reading buzzes, that tells you the fuse is working all fine and dandy. Lack of reading or buzzing and you know what to do right? Yes, you have to take out the bad fuse and switch with a brand new working one.
My experience in fixing a number of LG DVD players over the years has taught me that when it comes to the no disc problem, the fault generally lies with the player’s spindle motor and not the lens. Not sure why some technicians out there are quick to dump the blame on the lens component whenever the no disc issue arises. The lens is generally stable and durable, depending on the brand or quality of the player of course.
The spindle motor on the other hand is a DVD player component that really doesn’t hold up well over time. Sooner or later it will end up a wreck, thus causing all sorts of problems and that includes the ever famous no disc error.
When the spindle motor gets so messed up, no LG DVD player repair manual in the world can help you fix it. The best solution is to replace the thing. However, before you replace it with a new motor, make sure you test the spindle motor and see what the RPM reading is. If you get a good RPM reading, then the spindle motor isn’t the cause of the no disc problem.
