I believe one of two things is the couse. First try to look inside to see the disc spin or listen for the hum of the disc spining; drive motor may have failed.(not hard to fix if you can find a motor online) Second and a much easier fix if the motor is spinning,is to disassemble the cabinet and clean the lense with a Q-tip carefully.
it could be that when you close the lid it does not press the switch that start the motor. <br />
if you see the disc spining maybe the laser head is not clean <br />
or the main board is broken <br />

The spindle motor motor is defecteive already. replace it. when the spindle motor not working. the cd wont spin, how can the optical lens read the disc when its is not spining. you need a qualified technician to fix your problem.
The drive motor may be bad and the disk is not spinning up or the laser is probably bad and it is not reading the disk. You may also want to make sure that the disk is firmly on the spindle. The Durabrand players have a stiff spindle and you have to press firmly till it clicks in or it won't spin up, causing the error.
I had the same problem with my PET724. I tried cleaning the lens, letting the battery run dead, even beating on it but nothing worked. When I was cleaning the lens again with some cleaning agent I accidentally slid the laser head as far away from the center as it would go. When I loaded another disc it has worked fine ever since. I have played at least two dozen discs so far with no problem.
There was a bad batch of spindle motors (why they didn't use brushless is any body's guess). I replaced mine and it is quite easy. I even soldered in the single-DVD player's (same basic model number, just not multi-disk) motor because I couldn't find the right part for the multi-disk model (or the single was cheaper, I forget). That was years ago and it still works great today (I didn't like the lack of features on a cheap replacement player).
If you find that the DVD is not spinning it might means that the the "spinner" is not functioning, the sound you hear is the laser moving up and down trying to read your DVD but since is not spinning it can not read it. You will need to replace the small motor that operates the spinner, after extensive use they just give up. I hope this is helpful enough.
