Warning: Laser inside! If you want to open it up and troubleshoot, make sure you don't point toward your eyes.
Check the nylon laser carriage to see if it slides laser from center to outside line. If it sticks, it's probably shutting down from not properly reading a disk.

No disc indicates that the optical headd unit is clogged or faulty.Now if the optical is working the data will be read , if not there is no laser scanning and the possibility that the laser head can be defective.
Now certain cleaner disks will not be tracked to run for cleaning as it is not read. Hence it will reject. So it is ideal to clean manually the laser head eye using a cotton bud with gentle pressure on the lens eye.
If not the optical head is faulty

The laser reading head has failed. You can try using a cd/dvd lens cleaner on it, but unless your unit has been used in a filthy environment it's a waste of even more money.

Your DVD-310 is now about two years old and at a typical selling price of just US$69 or UK£40 was an ultra-budget model. Unless it's still under warranty the only realistic fix is to drop yours into the electronic goods recycling bin and to buy a replacement as repairs will cost even more.

TRY USING THE RED AS THE YELLOW AND THE YELLOW AS RED, THIS SHOULD MAKE ONE SIDE OF THE AUDIO NOT WORK AND THE VIDEO WORK. REPEAT WITH THE YELLOW/ WHITE. TRY DIFFERENT CORDS. TRY IT ON A DIFFERENT SYSTEM. YOU MAY HAVE KNOCKED SOMETHING LOOSE INSIDE IT.

If when you insert the disk you hear a whirring and clicking noise, CD spins, and does not read, then that is a problem with the DVD lens.

The DVD lens try to focus on the DVD track, by moving lens pickup and spinning the disk, but cannot read the tracks because the lens is dirty or defective.

Try first cleaning the lens with a DVD cleaner disk. And also if you can see the lens from the outside try blowing some canned air on it.

If this still does not help, then the lens pickup may be faulty, in this case you often replace the whole DVD drive unit inside the DVD player.

Pioneer is not great about updates. Here is a link to the user manual. If has been purchased in the last year it should be up to date, and i would contact people where it was purchased.
