First, try the disc that plays OK in deck 2 in deck 1. This will eliminate the disc as the problem. If the disc won't play in deck 1, then the laser pick-up is on it's way out. There is no easy fix for this, it will require the attention of an engineer.

I just bought an hour ago and the left disk drive is not reading the disk.

While this is likely to eb a simple repair, any "new" unit should work as expected. Your best bet is to return the unit to the place of purchase and request an exchange. Any attempt to repair this will void the warranty. The purchase location should not give you any trouble. Insist on an exchange.

Does not recognize/play DVD - shows "NO DISK"

If you are good at repairs.dismantle the Disk drive unit carefully from the main carriage and if the Optical lens reading unit has got a drive P C B ,then desolder the PCB so that you have only the CD mechanism on your table,with a Digital Multimeter check the Ohmic values of both the Spindle motor and Sled motor. the resistance should read between 4.5 ohms and 8ohms any value beyond this means that the drive signal voltage is not enough to move /rotate the disc and optical-pickup in can get the drive-motors replaced,or replace the CDM assly available off the shelf.
this should solve the problem.hundreds SONY DVD players are running with this remedy.

Disc stuck in unit

Unplug power cord. Plug back power and keep pressing the eject button repeatedly while the unit starts up. Do this a couple of times, if you succeed in activating the eject before the system starts reading the disk, then it will eject.

If you do not get the disk out in this way, the only alternative is taking the unit apart, and removing disk from inside manually.
