Every time we insert a disk (any type) it says No Disc. We have to keep opening it and turning the disc until it finally plays. Any reason it's doing this? Is it dead? We tried cleaning the thing with a dvd player cleaner that didn't help.

The recording may have used all the media on the disk because you let it run until it was full. Now, there is no room to finalize the disk.
Play this back on the machine where it was recorded while recording it to another DVD recorder.. This time, BE THERE to stop the recording. Set the recorder to a speed that leaves at least 10 minutes extra space for finalization.
Finalising a disc enables the disc to be played on any other compatible machine. By doing this it changes the disc format so that you can no longer record to it turning it into a Play Only disc. On your Panasonic DVD Recorder you can record to many (if not all depending on the model) of the following DVD Disc formats to the limit of their capacity over multiple occasions. The disc in question can be played back and recorded to on the DVD Recorder during this time but until it is finalised it will not work on any other machine. DVD Formats: DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD-RAM, DVD+R, DVD+RW. How do I Finalise my disc?
When you have finished the initial recording stop the disc and press the ~FUNCTIONS~button.
Using the ~UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT arrows~ on the keypad select "To Others" and press~ENTER~.
Using the ~UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT arrows~ on the keypad Scroll down to "DISC MANAGEMENT" and press ~ENTER~.
When the disc management screen opens you need to use the ~UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT arrows~ on the keypad to scroll down to "FINALIZE" and press ~ENTER~.
Using the ~UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT arrows~ on the keypad select "YES" and press~ENTER~.
Using the ~UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT arrows~ on the keypad select "START" to begin finalizing the disc, please note by pressing start here you will no longer be able to record or edit the disc being finalized.
Finalizing may take up to 15 minutes. Do not disconnect the mains power in this time. A message appears when finalizing is finished, press the enter button when this appears. It will now play on other compatible machines.
I noticed that too with my "VR" (and NOT "Video") formatted disks. I don't think you can finalize the VR ones. Instead you have to use the Sony Import tool to grab the videos. If you are like me you probably remember using the import tool with Video formatted disks BEFORE finalizing them and it takes forever to copy them. They must be finalized to view on other devices, copy using the import tool quicker, etc., but VR formatted disks seem optimized for importing (and can be edited on the camcorder directly.

Have you tried the rewriteables, they don't require to be finalized at all. ILO's are real picky, I returned two to Walmart before discovering to use ONLY SONY + or the rewriteables(brand doesn't seem to matter on the rewritables, don't know why.
The reason why you are having this problem is because you haven't finalized the disc. In able for you to play that Burned DVD that you have you need to Finalized the disc.
Finalizing a recordable optical disc means writing the disc's lead-in (the Table of Contents or TOC) and lead-out information (blank data that fills up the unused space at the end of the disc) so that a DVD player will know where the various tracks begin and end. Without the TOC, a conventional DVD player will not be able to read the contents of the disc.
Once the disc is finalized, no more information can be written to it. Finalizing takes about two or three minutes.
To finalize a DVD-RW/DVD-R:
1. Press the Menu button with the disc stopped.
2. Select Disc Manager and press Enter or the right arrow.
3. Select Disc Finalize and press Enter or the right arrow.
You will be asked twice if you are sure that you want to finalize the disc. Select Yes and press Enter.
Once the disc is finalized, you cannot delete entries from the record list. After being finalized, the DVD-R/DVD-RW (video mode) operates in the same manner as a DVD-Video. Recorded discs must be finalized in order to play back in non-Samsung DVD players.
A DVD-RW disc that has been recorded by DAO (disk-at-once mode) in a PC cannot be unfinalized.
A DVD-RW disc that has been recorded in Video Mode on a non-Samsung recorder cannot be unfinalized by a Samsung recorder.
A DVD-R disc cannot be unfinalized.
Note: Finalization does not apply to DVD-RAM.
If you cannot finalize a DVD-R or DVD-RW disc, make sure that Disc Protection is turned off. If you are still having difficulty, you may try calling technical support of SAMSUNG.
Note: Do not turn the recorder off while it is finalizing the disc. Data on the disc will be damaged if the finalization process is interrupted.
This seems to happen with alot of dvd recorders especially if discs left unfinalised for long periods of time.This happens on all makes of recorders not just your model.Also the quality of the dvds being used can be the problem.How old is your recorder as the only other problem which could cause this is the laser losing power
