My Dvd player won't read discs, I tried running a cleaner disc to clean the lens, but it still won't read. I found out that if I open the disc lid and hold down on the disc lid button- such that the player thinks the lid is closed- I can watch as the reader tries to read the disc. When it tries to read, the disc doesn't hardly spin, but acts like it is trying to. I took my finger and spun the disc fairly fast and then held down on the disc lid button, and then I took off and spun the disc and read and played it. Is the motor bad or something? Thanks

It is normal when DVD player requires lens replacement. The lens can be replaced. But please clean first before you decide to replace the lens. Sometime clean the lens will restore your player.
