"No Disc" Error

My DVD player used to work just fine. Now I put DVD's in and I hear them spinning and the screen looks normal and says they are "loading." However, they never load and then I get a message saying, "No disc" when there is a disc in there. I've tried all kinds of DVD's new and old, and ones that have worked before and I get the same message. Not sure if the lens needs to be cleaned, if there is something else I can fix, or if it's time to get a new one. Please help! Hopefully, it's fixable as I haven't had the player that long.

Get error message "disc error" will not advance after zenith trade mark stops whirling

I'd like to help but need more information.

1. What do you mean by "will not advance"? Do you mean you put in a disc, it starts up (do you hear it spin?), the trademark is whirling, and then it stops and doesn't do anything else? Can you hear it stop spinning? Does the screen say anything else?

2. Does it do this with any other discs, or just one particular one? ("Disk has been changed" may mean this but I just wanted to verify.)

Making sure the "line select" has been switched from "in" instead of "out". Once you switch it back to "out", the player should work normally.

Samsung 3650 dvd/vcr player loading problem

Sorry, no suggestion other than don't buy Samsung. That's my conclusion after owning the same model. It worked fine for a while, but now won't load any DVD... usually. Sometimes it will play one, but more often it won't. Mine tries to load ("Loading") for a long time, I hear the DVD spinning, then ultimately the screen displays "This disc cannot be played" or something to that effect.
