Try taking off the cover and cleaning the laser lens. If a player is used around smokers or in a house where you cook alot, a thin film of dust and grease can make the player act too sensitive. If that does not work, you problably need an alighnment or the laser assembly is going bad.

Try a cd to play music and see if the dvd player will work. If it does then play music until the circuit gets hot. Then cool down and try dvd again. You may have to repeat many times until condensation on the circuit dries up, and dvd will play.

Smacking the machine is a good way to destroy the DVD lens. Get a CD/DVD lens cleaner and make sure there aren't any marks on the disk. Dirt & smudges cause about 75% of all CD/DVD player problems.

Every DVD gets stuck with "Loading"

could be just the mechanism that detects whether theres a disc in.
Have to open it up to find out tho, not a good idea unless you know what youre doing.
