SOURCE: Cannot play this disc
remove the cover and see if the dvd run, if not you got a motor problem or a motor drive one,if yes then try cleaning the reading eyes(pickup)by blowing dry air (get a can at radio shack)check for goods, if dosent work, take it to a shop for a repair thats all you can do, is a job for a tech....good luck

I have had some problems with the same unit. My particular problems are posted under dutchtreet on a page on this site. I bought a compressed air duster like used on keyboards and tv screens. I have cleaned the lens on the laser pick up on my old Sony cd player (15+ yrs. old) several times and done some minor vcr repairs and simple electronics repairs so I was not intimidated! Much to my chagrin, there was a cover w/ a spidle above the lens on the dvd recorder! I could not get to it w/ a swab and some 99.6% alcohol on it so I opted to get to it with the air dusters nozzle as close to the lens as I could get without removing the cover/spindle. I probably used half the duster and blew from all angles possible. After reinstalling it, it will now play some dvd's it would not play since I began having problems. Also loads both cd's and dvd's much quicker. I know I have a dust problem in my A/V room so am now running my air cleaner 24/7. Am also wiping off all media I use in it before inserting. So hopefully with some routine maintenance I can keep it working ok. You can probably have the unit cleaned locally. How do you keep the drawer open while cleaning? Open the drawer amd then disconnect the power cord while it is open. I know from some rsearch that dvd recorders are must more sensitive and do not like dust!!!

Dvd players are only made to last a couple of years(the laser goes bad).If you play scratched disc's it won't last that long.Hopefully you didn't pay alot for the player,and if you did then you can get the laser repaired but its expensive.I usually wait until the things go on sale and pick one up for 20 or 30 dollars.When the laser burns out after repeated use I just buy a new one because fixing them is more expensive and unless you want to continue having problems its easier to buy new.These guys that put alot of money in these units are just wasting their money.

The only other thing I can suggest, having repaired many Sony CD/DVD players, is to get a can of compressed air and try to blow any dust out from the laser assembly. Since you've already cleaned the lens (the most common problem), you also might have dust down inside the assembly. Try blowing with the air nozzle down inside, around the gap between the lens and the cover surrounding it. Do it from at least a couple of inches away, if the air is too powerful you can damage the wiring inside the assembly.
If this fails to correct the problem, your laser output may have diminished over time and the only repair is to install a new laser assembly. The cost of this part will most likely not be worth it to you since the unit is quite old now.
