I would unplug the unit and take the cover off, sounds like it could use a good cleaning, you can also lubricate moving components with Vaseline. Reverse the vacuum and blow excess dust from the unit, locate the laser lens and clean with alcohol and dry with a cotton cloth.
Hopefully this resolves your issue.

SOURCE: dvd not loading

The general amateur fix, and one with surprisingly high success rates is to brush dust accumulated on the laser lens. This is assuming you get this with all disks, otherwise better not risk opening it. Plug it out, open the screws, open it up, if necessary remove another board covering the lens, and gently brush the dust off. Assemble back and hopefully you're solved. Anything else is for the lab(motor, lens assembly, focusing problems etc) Good luck

SOURCE: My Akai dvd player shows

Hello,

The reason the player is not reading the disc and showing no disc is either because the disc is not sitting properly on the lens from the disc tray, or the lens is weak or the lens is dirty.

To test if it is the disc tray, open the cover of the player with the appropriate screwdriver, place a disc directly on the tray and apply a little pressure on the tray, if it reads the disc, then it is the tray.

All you have to do is to adjust the disc tray and screw it tightly.

To test if the lens is weak, try several DVD disc on it,and test them also on another tested ok player, if it does not work on your player and works on other players, then the lens is weak.

to fix this, get the appropriate screwdriver, open the cover and unscrew the disc tray.

You will gain access to the lens, carefully disconnect the lens and replace it with a new lens. then it will be ok.

To test if it is just that the lens is dirty, clean the lens with a lens cleaner and test a DVD to see if it will work.

Take care.

RCA TV DVD Combo DVD makes loud grinding noise when playing DVD


does not sound correct. Perhaps the laser is hitting the DVD, or a gear is dirty. Anyway, if you keep playing with a strange noise in the player, it won't take long before it stops complete, or till you destroyed all your DVD's When you don't see scratches on the silver side of the DVD's, you should check (or let a technician check) what can be wrong with the player.

sounds like your lens has become unseeded and will need to be adjusted this can be done by opening it and seeing where exactly it is missing support however i would suggest purchasing a new one and returning this old one

Player makes lots of noise when trying to load a disk, some what of a grinding sound and eventually stops with the disk not loaded


hello,

there seem to be a problem with the lens of the dvd player so it is not accepting the disc that is why it is making that grinding sound.

the lens could either be weak or dirty.

try use a lens cleaner, if it works after then it means the lens was dirty.

and if it does not work, then it means the lens is weak and needs replacement.

take care

DvD player wont load


The grinding could be the laser trying to read, so you could try a CD/DVD cleaner product> It also could be the laser is off track or damaged and you would need to have it repaired or buy a new player.

Loud grinding, spinning noise with game in console.


Even if it is still playing dvds it might be the dvd-rom drive, usally it spins a game faster than a dvd. Or it could be the harddrive if it was trying to save something. try to download a demo or something to check the hard drive.

Not loading game


the reason it makes the "grinding" noise is because the motor that moves the lens to read the disk is dieing, this generally happens when you have played your ps2 for a long time, this only happens to older consoles.
