SOURCE: Keeping the DVD player going
The problems with dvd & cd players, are located in two areas - both mechanical.
#1 On the laser cartridge, there are minute springs that hold the lens while a coil and magnet arrangement moves the lens (similar to a speaker cone) to focus on the disc. These springs become weak and break on the cheaper models - Therefore it can't see the disc information clearly - and the output is not digital - it says no disc.
#2. The main bearing at the centre of these drives can run dry and start to become rough. This may cause the disc to wobble enough to start to vibrate. This failure is characterised by a noisy drive just before giving up.
So use a product that sources a quality optics package, and a decent framework.
It's amazing that the electronics can compensate for cheap build quality - but they do! - a bit like good suspension compensates for bad road quality.

For whatever reason, the laser assembly is not able to read the discs. This could be caused by any number of reasons including an alignment gone bad, to a dirty lens, to a bad laser diode...accordianman

You may have a problem with the transport of the dvd laser. Open the compartment that you place the dvd into. You will see the spindle,the laser lens and the transport device that moves it during operation. The transport system operates on system of gears and drive rails. You must check and clean the drive rails and gears. Use a can of compressed air and blow all the dust and debris from the dvd compartment. Then use some cotton swabs with a small amount of isopropyl alcohol on the tips and clean all the rails and gears. Check the transport action by moving the transport to its most outer position and back to its most inner position. The action and travel of the transport on the rails should be smooth and easy. The gears should be clean and move easy also.These parts will require cleaning every month or so . Remember do not touch the laser lens with your hand. You should also check the lens it should look bright and shine. If not try cleaning it with a cotton swab and a small amount of alcohol. Rub the lens gently back and forth unit it is bright and shines.Now you can try playing a dvd and see if the player works properly. If this does not fix you problem.
