I'm having the same problem with my unit but it didn't happen right away and I bought this off of a friend. It slowly happened over time where it would get worse. I took it apart and there was a plastic piece out of place so now it will play dvds but still says bad disc to my cds even though I cleaned the lens on it. Any type of solution would be great.

the unit is trying to read the disc. when it cant do this as a security feature so the disc is not jammed in the unit it discharges it. the reason is a dirty laser or bad disc. as im sure you have tried several disc then i would move to the last stage or repair you need to get the lazer clean there are two ways to do this send it into the shop for a servcie pro to take the unit apart and clean the lazer. but in most cases its just a little dust on the laser lens that can be removed using a laser disc cleaner you can buy them at most electronics shops that sell electronic equipment such as tvs dvds etc. they range from $5 to $40. purchase one and run it through you dvd player several times and you should be right back on track..
some of the newer dvd's are made double layer and recently they've been working on triple layer dvd's. basically a single layer dvd holds 5gb of information, a dual can hold 10gb and a triple can hold 15gb (those are approximates). by making it more layers, they can put the fullscreen and the widescreen edition on the same movie disc. some of the 'lower end' dvd players don't have the capabilities to play these dual or triple layer discs.
according to the manual it does not support cd-r, lemme copy this section right out of the book
The following discs cannot be played back on this product. DVD-ROM - DVD-R/DVD-RAM - CD-ROM - VSD - CDV - CD-G - SACD - photo CD - CD-R* - some DTS CD discs - CD-EXTRA (audio-only playback possible) - DVDs with a region number other than "1" or "ALL" - discs recorded in PAL format, others.
(* Because this product has its own reading device, CD-R discs can not be played back.)
If i remember correctly somethin about a dual laser in it or somethin, I feel your pain wish it could but it does come with rca aux input that you can do headphone -> rca jack so you can hookup a mp3 player or laptop or whatever
