SOURCE: LG V8824w DVD/CD - Disc Error
I bought a lg lst3510A at a yard sale for 20 bux. Lady said that it was new and had never been used. Plugged it in and got disc error when trying to play a dvd. I removed the cover and gently slid the lens pickup to the far back I DO MEAN GENTLY.... IT SEEMS LIKE IT HAD LOST ITS HOME POSITION. This worked for me. IF YOU TRY THIS MAKE SURE THAT YOU UNPLUG THE DVD PLAYER FIRST. Good luck and I hope this works for you.

using a dvd/cd cleaner, clean the optical lens of the unit, it could be some dirt that make the player not to read every cd you inserted.

The unit has two lasers one for the cd and one for the dvd, the one for the dvd is bad and the whole laser assembly needs replaced. Cheaper to buy a new player.... sorry

When you get no disk error, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will start operating on certain disks better than others.
In that case you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD/DVD will not be read, therefore the error.
Whe this problem is starting you may be able to read only CD, DVD or Blue ray, or for example only DVD-R and not +R , or only to read and not to write and so on. After more prolonged usage , often the unit goes losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all.
In your case the lens does not work on DVD , but only on CDs for the reasons above , that is quite common.
If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens problem.
Try first using a CD/DVD or Blue ray lens cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does not work you will need to disassemble the drive , and clean lens directly with q tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the CD/DVD lens, or the whole drive unit.
