I had a similar problem with my Yamaha DVD player which just kept displaying "reading, reading and reading"- eject-no disc or disc error. I took it into be repaired and was told it needed a new optical lense-cost $120.00 plus fitting.I was told not viable to fix. Not convinced I had a look on the internet and a suggestion given was to buy a can of Air Spray from **** Smith,$14.00 later and blowing the proverbial out of the inside of the unit-Bingo it works for about an hour and then, away we go again-reading reading reading - eject-no disc. Back to the internet and i found a DVD technician who advised the more often than not the problem is a dirty optical lense, and he has saved 100's from the grave by the following method. The most effective way to clean it is with a cotton wool bud soaked in Isopropyl Alcohol and give it a good rub without damaging it. I got the Isopropyl alcohol for $12.00 a 250 ml bottle from the local chemist and did what was suggested. IT WORKED and is still going- not sure for how long but the bonus is I can use the remainder for rubbing down my tired old body, as after shave or a refresher, in addition to fixing DVD's so not all is lost. It's worth a try considering I was going to throw the Yamaha away. Thanks to the internet and the good people who share their knowledge I am happy again.
Hopefully it will work for you. If not, don't forget the other uses for the alcohol.

I have the same problem. When I insert a disk, my NAD T 550 DVD player displays 'No Disc'. It started with new disks while still reading older disks, but at some time it stopped recognizing any disk. Did you receive any suggestion yet or has anyone a suggestion?
I am so pleased to hear that you have restored the DMR E55 and for taking the trouble to let me know. It's always satisfying to achieve something like that and I guess you'll get even more pleasure from using it now than you did before. They are good machines and well worth the effort to keep them going.
Hello thank you for choosing FixYa.com for your answer My name is David.
It sounds to me like Its in need of cleaning the dvd lenses collect dust over time
of no use and will cause them to not read properly try running a dvd cleaner disk in it you may have to run it a few times but it should work if it doesnt you can try to take it apart to get to the lense and clean it with alcohol and a cue tip lightly dipped.
if its not a logic board issue, then its a read head issue. i would try everything else first, and then take the outer case off and physically clean the laser emitter / read head, and look for debris in the track the read head follows from center to edge of the disc. if anyone else has a better suggestion that is not as invasive, try it first. good luck mark
I had the same problem and after reading and trying allot of disks I found the following to work.
Maxell - RW disk. Did a complete format on my computer (takes a while).
Burned a DVD using Vista DVD burner with only a Jpg as per one of the
other posts. Once the disk plays. Stop and goto disk management and
format using DVD-V (VR did not work).
I know its not pretty but at least its better than throwing it in the garbage bin.
first try unpluging the device for a half day and see if the problem repeats itself
the manual recommend to ask for a technisihion to repair the unit
before that try this:
take a can of compressed air with a narrow hose
open the discs drawer
try to locate the laser eye with some light
and clean it
it should do the job
