I imagine you have checked the disk for scratches top and bottom, if so you can purchase a cd/dvd lens cleaner cdrom as the laser may need realigning and cleaning.

I had the same problem! I have the singnal connected to a digital converter box, to the recorder, and then to the tv. the digital channels work ok on the tv from the converter box. However, they do not work on the recorder.

I'm assuming your Disney tapes are store-bought, as opposed to recorded off the air. If that's true, the reason you can't record them to your dvd recorder is because of copy-protection. Sorry...can't advise you how to break that.

This is a motor problem. Here is what to do to put it right.
Open the disc tray and switch off the power, then remove the lid off the player. Locate the disc motor and where the spindle goes through the motor put a little WD40 or light oil (but not too much) or it will get messy.
Turn the disc motor a few times yourself and let the lubricant soak in. Leave it for about 30 minutes then try it again - and it should work.
This works in a number of cases, though I can't guarantee it will work for you. TRY IT! (:-)

i have got the same complaint some days ago. your players spindle motor is faulty.
its winding have some problem. spindle motor is that one on which the dvd spins. when u insert the dvd it is not rotating at the required rpm. thats why it is not reading. the problem will not be with video cds . because it doesn't required a high rpm. replace the spindle motor. it will not cost a lot. its sure that ur problem will be solved.
if then also the problem remains,
your player's laser pick up unit have some problem with its DVD laser. there are two types of laser in dvd players. one for reading and playing audio cds, mp3 and video cds and the other for reading and playing dvds. in your player dvd laser have problem. dont think that these are two separate unit. the lasers are mounded in the same unit. if any of the laser get damaged you have to replace the whole unit.
if u need any more assistance feel free to contact me through fixya.
bellow is the image of laser pickup mechanism

Same problems with my unit. But, try this... I think it worked. First, you can not get to the setup screen for the unit with a DVD in the player. So, remove the DVD first: Unplug the unit, wait a few seconds, plug it back in. Then hit the DVD open button and remove DVD in player.
I think the issue with not reading certain DVDs is a problem with the "parental control" on the unit. Without setting parental control there were a few DVDs I could not play and sometimes (not always) I was asked about parental control before a movie would play. At the Sony Blue DVD screen, select Setup on the remote control. Select DVD setup and get to Parental control. Set a password. This will then take you to a "rating" screen. By setting the rating very high (I set mine for #8) any movie should play without needing the password. With no password set, you can not change the "rating" and hence mine was set at #1 (kids). It seems to have worked for now anyway. Good luck.
