Please do not open your DVD player, unless you know what you are doing. Best thing for you to do is buy a CD/DVD lens cleaner kit available at most Audio video shops and Radio Shack. It consists of a Disc to which a small brush is attached. Place the disc in the tray, and just follow the instructions given in the CD packaging. You should not - at ANY COST - touch the lens, or use things like cotton buds, or use any solutions. You could scratch the lens, or cause misalignment.

My dvd player is saying it cannot read the disc?


the lens in the dvd drive is most likely dirty, try a DVD lens cleaner or clean the lens yourself. Note that taking the dvd player apart to clean it will void the warranty.

Here is a video on the cleaning with a qtip - and alcohol, I've personally just used water / wet qtip to clean the lens.

.

use the other side of the qtip(wet) to clean the lens, and the other end(dry) to dry it.

if this doesn't solve the problem try a few other discs, if the problem remains the dvd player will need repair. the laser lens possibly has more difficult issues or something else in the player is failing.

I hav lg dvd writer it plays cd but dvd what to do


That is because of a dirty or defective lens. When you have a lens problem the unit may still play CD but not DVDs.

Try first using a lens cleaner disk, like the ones here.

If that does not work, the unit must be disassembled, and lense cleaned with q tips and isopropyl alcohol or cleaning solution. See below:

Unit plays DVD but no longer Blu Rays


That is because of a dirty or defective lens. When lens is dirty, the unit may still operate on regular CDs and DVDs and not be reading BD.

Try first using a lens cleaner for Blue Ray: Maxell 190054 Blu-Ray Lens Cleaner

If that does not work, the unit may be disassembled, and lense cleaned with q tips and isopropyl alcohol or cleaning solution. See below:

Being this a blue ray unit , I would suggest calling support instead of disassembling the unit by yourself.
