Hello Kenny,
My name is David thank you for using FixYa.com for your answer.

Sounds to me that the eye is dirty or even bad try to run a dvd cleaning disk
In your player you can get them in most all stores such as walmart etc...
try to run it in the machine if it is real dirty you may have to run it a few times
if that doesnt help you can try to do it manually by taking the cover off
your player and then opening the dvd compartment to expose the eye and clean it with a cue tip
and alcohol lightly dip the cue tip and clean the lense off I have had to do that with dvd players and old playstations in the past and it worked fine. try the disk first though before taking anything apart
good luck this should work for you.
Thank you again for choosing FixYa.com for all your answers and please feel free to rate me for the answer i have provided.

Check the cable from the lens to the PCB, try changing the cable from back to front and test. If not OK, brought a cable from a friend who has a similar player try out the lens cable. hope it helps

Is there an easy fix when the dvd keeps spinning and screen says loading but does not play?


You have to clean the dirt off the laser lens inside as it cant see the codes on the disc.Use a cleaning disc first or it will have to come apart to clean.

Cyberhome DVD writter not decting DVDs . Getti g a disc error.


HI Johnny,

Any chance someone went near the DVD/VCR and dusted with some Pledge or any kind of dusting spray? It sounds like something has got the DVD driver chip acting crazy. May be a faulty disc tray switch telling the controller the door is opening and closing all the time. If its brand new, do you have an opportunity to take advantage of a warranty claim?

Won't read Dvd/Cd as loaded


It is a problem of the optical head being covered up by foreign particles obscuring the optical lens. Try using a CD/DVD cleaner disc which has double brushes and one add some solvent which comes along with the pack.Simply play it & keep ejecting and inserting the disc makes the disc to spin, till your player starts reading it..............................sodeep

Bad disc or insert disc problem


If you are using a copied disc try a real one. But this model of DVD Player is made so cheap. it sound like the laser assembly is bad or the motor that spins the disc is stuck or going out. If you are good at electroninics you could take the lid off load a disc and see if it spins if not give it a spin clockwise and see if it takes off. You probably should replace unit for price of a new one.
