I have a Proline LVD198W and the DVD does not work when a disc is inserted into the drive. This is the second time this is happening and it is now out of warranty. Please can you advise what I can do or where I can get this repaired. I live in Hertfordshire. A mate of mine said to buy a DVD cleaner this may solve the problem.
Thanks in anticipation of your response.

Turn on the DVD player. It generally takes a few seconds to get going. Take out the DVD if there's one in the drive already.
Make sure the disc isn't scratched or dirty. Use a soft rag to clean the disc if you see any smudges. Insert the CD into the DVD player's disc drive and close it.
Press the "Play" button on the DVD player or remote control. Some DVD players will begin reading the disc automatically. Pushing the button works just as well.
Use the "Scene Selection" buttons on your remote to select a track. Some DVD players have odd ways of ordering the buttons on the remote. You might have to play around a bit before you find all the right buttons to work the CD playing function of your machine.
Crank it up and enjoy your music. The DVD player will act just like a CD player and play the tracks of the CD through the TV.
Most DVD players display that kind of error when unable to read data on you disc media. Try other DVD disc if that post the same problem. A new one will test if it is the unit problem or the media disc problem. If it post the same problem on a disc that runs well on other players then your player probably has a dirty lens. You can clean the lens using commercially available DVD lens cleaner on the market.
The most common reason for the player not reading discs is a bad drive. The following website sells the drives and does installs:
This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your games, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your player including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your player going again!
If it reaeds the cleaner... then try another disc. 20-30 seconds is a long time to looad a disc...
If the new disc does not work either , I would suggest resting the deck .
If reseting does not help , it is still under warrantee. so have it serviced.
