My vm9510 has been working fine for quite some time but, recently when I put a DVD into the player it either reads ERROR or EJECT Disk. Sometimes it'll play for a minute then freeze. I've tried different media from DVD to MP3 disk but I still keep getting either of these messages.

The Laser Diode inside the UV8 that reads the DVD media is most likely set too weak for the amount of dust built up in over time. This dust block the laser optics and causes the player to not read DVD's. You will want to go get a bottle of air from Radio shack and blow the DVD player out. The reason it is reading CD's is that its laser diode may be set stronger and is able to break through the dust. There are two Laser Diodes, one for CD, and one for DVD. Good luck. www.PlaystationClinic.com
The laser eyes on mobil units are relatively cheap and low quality. If you keep playing copied discs(any format), it will make them "tired"(out ot alignment) from trying to focus on low quality encoded discs and render it useless. Original discs are produced with equipments and programs that cost ten of thousands of dollars that why they tend to retain the encoded info longer even when exposed to direct sun light for times and easier for unit to read. But if you are like the rest of us going to junk that player after a couple of years in service then use Verbatim Platinum dvds, they are quite high in prices but retain info much better than others. But remember they are still copied discs not the original articles and might one day cause your players to fail completly. Goodluck.
Mecha error is a Mechanical Error. This means that this is an actual physical malfunction of the unit. Sometimes pressing the reset button can realign some of the mechanics but most often this is a problem that requires to be serviced.
