Many pawn shops buy and sell used DVDs and DVD players. Pawn shops often pay about $0.50 to $5 for used DVDs and about $5 to $50 for used DVD players. The prices of used DVDs and DVD players have fallen over the last decade as more consumers migrate to streaming services like Netflix, Amazon, and Apple TV.

Not all pawn shops buy DVDs and DVD players, so you should use Pawn Shop Map’s tool to find pawn shops that sell electronics near you and contact the pawn shop to verify they buy and sell DVDs and DVD players.

Selling DVDs To Pawn Shops

Pawn shops may pay more for certain collectible DVDs that are rare or signed by celebrities. Other factors that influence how much the pawn shop will pay for your DVD include:

  • Condition: The pawnbroker will inspect the DVD and make sure it plays as expected. Pawn shops do not buy scratched DVDs. The pawnbroker will also inspect the DVD’s case to make sure it is in good condition.
  • Demand: DVDs in higher demand, such as Disney DVDs, will sell for more than obscure and unknown titles.
  • Compatibility: Pawn shops usually only buy DVDs that are playable in the US/Canada. Some DVDs are locked to specific regions outside of the US/Canada.
  • Authenticity: Pawn shops only buy authentic DVDs. Pawn shops do not want to buy fake goods.

Selling DVD Players To Pawn Shops

Pawn shops buy consumer electronics such as DVD players. Typically the pawnbroker will offer 20% to 60% of the DVD player’s resale value, which is about $5 to $50 for most DVD players. Factors that will influence the pawnbroker’s offer include:

  • Technology: DVD players with more advanced features, such as upscaling and streaming capabilities, tend to be worth more at pawn shops.
  • Brand: Name-brand DVD players are typically worth more than generic models at pawn shops. Common DVD player brands that pawn shops buy include:
    • Sony
    • Panasonic
    • Samsung
    • LG
    • Philips
    • Sharp
    • Toshiba
    • Pioneer
  • Age: Newer DVD players tend to be worth more at pawn shops.

Cleaning Your DVD Player

We recommend cleaning your DVD player before you bring it into the pawn shop. Spending 5 to 10 minutes cleaning your DVD player can increase your offer value by 10% or more. Follow these steps to safely clean your DVD player:

  • Unplug the DVD player from the power source.
  • Use a soft, dry cloth to wipe away any dust or dirt from the outside of the DVD player.
  • Use a soft, damp cloth to wipe away any fingerprints or smudges from the outside of the DVD player.
  • Open the disc tray and use a soft, dry cloth to wipe away any dust or dirt from the inside of the DVD player.
  • Use a soft, damp cloth to wipe away any fingerprints or smudges from the inside of the DVD player.
  • Use a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol to clean the laser lens of the DVD player.
  • Plug the DVD player back into the power source and test it to make sure it is working properly.

Streaming Services Are Replacing DVDs

Streaming services are quickly becoming the preferred way to watch movies and TV shows. The main reason for this is convenience. Streaming services allow users to watch whatever they want, whenever they want, without having to wait for a DVD to arrive in the mail or drive to the store to buy one. Additionally, streaming services are typically much cheaper than buying DVDs, as they often offer subscriptions for a flat monthly fee.

Another reason streaming services are replacing DVDs is because of the improved quality of streaming services. Many streaming services now offer HD and even 4K streaming, allowing viewers to enjoy their favorite movies and shows in crystal clear quality. Additionally, streaming services are always adding new content, meaning viewers have access to a wide variety of movies and shows, without having to worry about whether or not their favorite titles are available on DVD.
