Won't read dvd's or anything, just says mechanics error
It says ready! and I put a dvd in and it doesn't read. It just spins, or sounds like it anyway lol, And then it tries to reload the dvd in I guess. I put a disc in Disc 1 slot, and it spins, doesn't read, then the display says *Disc 1* which is what it says when you load a disc in, so I have no idea what's going on, it worked yesterday, but now it won't read anything, not cd's and not dvd's. After about 10 minutes it will say *Mechanics Error* Is it time to just give in a buy a new one?

Someone needs to open it to SEE what is happening--if the unit holds more than one disc (model seems to indicate that) you likely have a mechanism problem with something jammed or even broken--mechanism could also be out of alignment which is a task for a pro.
Look and see what is happening is first thing needed here.
Hello Just power OFF the set by its main power OFF switch, and switch in ON, while listening very close to its mechanism side and see whether there is any sound of disc spin. If disc do not spin inside the mechanism, due to a faulty sled motor, the fault you descrbes here will occur. If disc spins inside, and still it does not reads the disc, the laser pickup unit is faulty and should be replaced. OK.
There are mainly three motors for most of the DVD players. One to spin the disc we insert in, other to load the laser pickup unit to-and-fro inside it to read the disc and an other one to load the tray mechanism 'in-out'. According to your description, the disc spins inside, and you can hear its spin. So motor which spins the disc has no trouble at all I should say. Then comes to the second motor that moves the laser assembly inside it. If it do not work, the laser pickup unit won't move and no reading will take place and 'No Disc' display will be the result. The last chance is with Laser Pickup Unit itself. Just get this unit repaired by any well experienced service technician or by the authorised service center, because, there are special tools to open this unit. As it is a compactable one, more care should be given to it while repairing. Suspect the second motor I described earlier, and the Laser Pickup Unit. OK.
