Bad disc message

My Astar PD3020 keeps saying ''bad disc'' for both dvds and cds . This unit is 2-3 years old and has been fine when I first purchased it. I did not used it for a year. Can this be easily repaired and is it worth it? Any suggestions would be appreciated

Some times dust can collect on the laser lens of the pick-up assembly and cause this. If you can get to the lens, which is under the disc tray where the disc gets clamped and starts to spin, it can be cleaned with a q-tip and alcohol. Just be gentle with it. If this doesnt help the pick-up assembly will have to be replaced.

Hi...
The laser goes thru a different lens arraignment for DVDs.
Take it to a TV shop and have them "blow out" the laser assembly with some CO2 and clean the lens.
