The disc may not be spinning when inserted into the player.
when you insert a disc, something holds it from the top and bottom and starts to spin it. If the upper and/or lower grips can no longer grip the disc strongly, the disc will not rotate or rotate very slowly or not in sync with the laser reading it.
to test this, put some double sided tape on the outer circumference of the middle hole of the dvd, don't go too close to the area where the data area on the dvd begins. do the bottom first.
if this works then you have to find a clever way of placing something on the grips so they can hold the discs stronger.
For my dvd player, i took it apart, cut a rubber sheet into a ring shape and glued it to the lower grip. Haven't had any problems so far.

If the DVD is not reading any CD, then it is often a lens problem.
If th lens cleaner does not work the unit must be taken apart, to clean the lens pickup with isopropyl alcohol and soft cotton tips.
In some case is necessary to replace the lens pickup, as this is defective.

This sound like a problem with the laser read circuits and it may be solved with a simple cleaning and using compressed air to clear the unit of debris .To do this you must take off the top cover of your unit by taking out the screws and lifting the top off. To clean the laser head you should use cotton swabs and isopropyl alcohol. put a small amount on the cotton swab and rub the swab gently back and forth over the head, until it seems bright and shiny.Check the transport carriage for dust and debris and also the gears. all these must be clean for proper operation. You may want to put a little lithium grease on the gears and guide rails for smooth operation. All this should be done in minute amounts so you do not over do it and cause more problems. If all this fails to allow you to use you disc player, Then you probably have a worn out laser sensor and will have to have it replaced. If under warranty send it in and if not try to find the part number and order it and either take in to a service center for repairs or do it yourself. Hope this helps you with your problem.
