I took the cover off. Moved the lense to the outer edge with my finger. Then rubbed the lense with a q-tip soaked in eye drop fluid (rubbing alcohol would work better). Then wiped it with the dry end. Works greats now!

SOURCE: "no disc" error message
Did this problem just start? It may be due to the lens no longer reading the disc. Try a lens cleaner. If your lens went south, it usually is paired with a clicking noise or/and the combination of a no disc/disc error message. I would also recommend staying away from Polaroid dvd players and tv's in the future. They have a habit of not making parts available, especially after the warranty.

This sound like a problem with the laser read circuits and it may be solved with a simple cleaning and using compressed air to clear the unit of debris .To do this you must take off the top cover of your unit by taking out the screws and lifting the top off. To clean the laser head you should use cotton swabs and isopropyl alcohol. put a small amount on the cotton swab and rub the swab gently back and forth over the head, until it seems bright and shiny.Check the transport carriage for dust and debris and also the gears. all these must be clean for proper operation. You may want to put a little lithium grease on the gears and guide rails for smooth operation. All this should be done in minute amounts so you do not over do it and cause more problems. If all this fails to allow you to use you disc player, Then you probably have a worn out laser sensor and will have to have it replaced. If under warranty send it in and if not try to find the part number and order it and either take in to a service center for repairs or do it yourself. Hope this helps you with your problem.

Your DVD drive's laser is malfunctioning.
You have a few options:
1) Decrease the resistance on the laser to increase power, and it may be able to read the discs again. A guide for that can be found here.
2) If that doesn't work, or you do not wish to do that, you can replace the laser head all together. Replacements can be found on eBay. You can follow this guide to replace the laser head.
3) You can replace the DVD drive completely, but it will require taking the original drive's firmware and putting it on the replacement one. The guide for that can be found here.
