Your laser probably broke.

You should replace the laser module. You can order one at online shops like http://www.consoleparts4u.co.uk/ or buy a cheap laser part on eBay, but watch out with buying components that are made in China/Hong Kong. There is a bigger chance of bad quality.
There is no soldering involved into replacing a PSP laser part. But you should watch out with static electricity and i recommend you following up a disassembly tutorial, for example the one here: http://www.consolezombie.com/PSP/PSP_Laser_Replacement.html

Most disc read errors are caused by dust or dirt on the lens of the DVD player. You should follow the cleaning instructions. Or watch a YouTube video on cleaning DVD lenses.

My denon adv 500sd wont read the discs can anyone help


If your unit has some time on it it probably has a dirty lense on the laser assembly. This isn't difficult to clean but you must exercise care not to damage any components of the laser assembly. Unplug the unit. Remove the top cover. If the disc drive has a cover, remove it. You should see the lense, looks like a fish eye, looking up at you. The lense is monted on a set of springs and will move around as you clean it. This is normal but do not apply anymore pressure than necessary. The alcohol will do the work loosening the dirt. Using 200 proof grain alcohol, available from any electronic parts supplier (www.mcmelectronic.com) and commercial grade, lint free, cotton swabs, also available at MCM, moisten swab and gently touch the lense rotating the swab head. Use a dry swab after the wet one. Blow dry the assembly with canned air, also available at MCM. Reassemble unit and you should have a working player. If you still are not reading discs you could have a defective or weak laser assembly. This would have to be replaced with a new unit. I hope this has helped you. Let me know if you need any more assistance.

Wont burn disc anymore


check to see if you can playback dvd movies or any other dvd if not then the dvd lense has gone on the dvd drive in which case you will need to purchase a new one , if you can at least playback dvds then it may be that the laser lense in the drive needs a clean and you can get a disc cleaner to clean the lense ( they have very soft brushes underneath the disc so whilst the disc is spinning around it cleans the lense )

This may help - if not then it will be a case of getting a new dvd rw drive and seeing as blu ray is out it will be cheap enough to replace.

I would suggest getting any computer hardware from http://www.newegg.com

Wont read audio discs


If you used a cleaning disc, try again only this time open up the unit and clean the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Those cleaning discs rarely work. Let me know if yuo still have a problem.
