Could be But most of the time when a tech says a laser assy is bad Its not. It could be a simple grating adj on the pickup assy that alot of techs dont have a clue what it is. This alighnment requires speacial tools and is not advised if you dont know how to do it. What it does is adj. the laser postion onto the prism inside the pickup assy. Or youer problem could be a tracking/focus Gain or offsetr alighnment. This has to be dont looking at the rf waveform from the pickup assy drive circuit via an oscilliscope. These are not unfortantly a consumer adjustment as well. If its an inexpensive player, such as more then a year or so old or under 75 bucks , it probably wont pay to have someone look at it. My friend , this is the times of the throwaway world!! Good Luck

OK lets start off by getting rid of the CD lens cleaner (CD cleaners do more damage then good). Now first we need to clean that lens with a DVD lens clearner (finer cleaning surface). Try to run the DVD cleaning disk twicw (no more) and try to play a DVD. If this does not work. You may have to test the laser power. get a schematic for the DVD that you have, and use it to let you know the specific power measurement of the power, This is done by using a laser power meter, you may not have one, so this becomes a moot point, but on the off chance that you do, use the laser power meter to measure the laser energy and make sure it is to specs as seen on the schematic. If you do not have a laser power meter., well I hate to tell you this but you may have to get a new unit. See the problem is the process of fixing this problem is simple if you have the right equipment, but if you don't you are at a disadvantage.

if its still under warranty, do that.
if it's not, try taking it back to the store and asking for a replacement. don't let the floor salesman tell you no. insist on speaking to the manager. my strategy is to: "be polite, appear slightly stupid, and dont take no for an answer" it works 80-90% of the time.
if you cant get anywhere (or dont want to try that route), then you have nothing to lose. open the case and try to clean the mechanism and lens
two screws on either side of the unit, and i think another 4 screws on the back side. this will allow you to pull the top cover off the unit.
clean the mechanism, and clean the lens. you can buy cleaner if you want, but i just use a soft cloth and some "no-streak" type window/glass cleaner (windex)
clean your disks as well. this DVD player seems to be sensitive to scuffs and dust more than some other players. you just have to be persistent.
or you could buy another DVD player. at $60, its really a pretty good deal anyhow.

Usually if there is a NO DISC error, and the lens is verified clean, there is either dust in the laser assembly (use a can of compressed air to clean it out) or a loose laser assembly cable. Also check to make sure the lens can bob (wiggle around), and that it can slide back and forth.
The emergency eject is underneath, its a small slot. Insert a toothpick at one end and slide to the other end to open the tray.

The unit has two lasers one for the cd and one for the dvd, the one for the dvd is bad and the whole laser assembly needs replaced. Cheaper to buy a new player.... sorry
