You need to use CD/DVD lens clening disk. If wont help gently clean the lens with Q-tip and 40% vodka or 50-70% rubbing alcohol

LG GSA-2166D doesn't recognize a dvd+r disc


I would suggest getting a can of air and blowing it out real well. May take a couple of tries to get it clean. When these types of units set unused for a while, the various sensors get dirty. Sometimes the problem can be cleared up by simply inserting and ejecting the media 8 or 10 times. Let it run up to speed each time.

Wat should i do when is displays no disc


Hello
If your DVD player shows no disc, even a disc is inserted, try to clean its laser head assembly, by inserting a cleaning disc in it and play atleast three times. Take it ejected each time before you play it. If it does not helps, open the top cover of your DVD player, insert a disc, and notice if the disc spins or not. If disc spins, and not reads, the laser picup unit of your DVD player is faulty, and should be replaced with same type and number. If its stripe wire connected between pickup unit and main board is detachable, try repalcing the strip wire first. In some occations, bad strip wire will show this type of problem.
If disc does not spins, the sled motor [the motor that used to spin the disc at high speed], is damaged and shoud replace it. OK.
