I'm afraid you are dealing with a weakened Laser on the unit. The cost vs. benefit ratio of fixing this unit is not worthwhile.
You will find that there are newer versions of this device on the market less expensive than what you paid for the unit you have now.

HI CHECK THESE Steps:
1. Remove the screws that hold the top case on the dvd player. There will be a couple of screws on each side of the player and a couple of smaller screws on the back. They will most often be BLUE RAY head screws.
2. Once the cover is removed, push the eject button to open the cd tray and get it out of your way.
3. Unplug the player from the outlet.
4. Take the can of compressed air and blow out the entire inside of the case. Make sure to blow inside the carriage and around any moving parts of the dvd player including tracks, tray, gears, etc.
5. Check the inside of the carriage using a small flashlight and look closely to make sure there is not debris caught in the spindle or other places like hair, large clumps of dust, dirt, and anything else that should not be there. If you see this kind of material remove it with tweezers and repeat blowing out the inside.
6. Pour a small amount of the rubbing alcohol into the cap and lightly dip a cu-tip in it and shake off any excess.
7. Now and clean off the optical lens (which will look like a small glass bubble in the middle of the carriage) with the cu-tip. Repeat this process a couple of times using a clean cu-tip each time.
8. Let air dry for 2 minutes before plugging the player back in and closing the tray.
9. Replace the cover and clean your discs before placing them back in the player. Test to see if the problem has been fixed.
You should clean your dvd player out at least once or twice a month for good preventative maintenance which will extend the life of your dvd player.
