Hello h p Williams This is a relatively common problem with all dvd players. The problem is that either the lens has become dirty or the lens has burnt out. If the lens is dirty , you have two relatively easy options to fix this. The first option is to go to your local music/electronics store and ask them for a cd/dvd lens cleaner kit. This kit consist of a CD with one or two little brushes on it , and a lens cleaning solution. You simply put a drop of solution on each of the brushes and then insert the cd/dvd in the dvd player. Play this disc for about 5 min and then try one of your normal disks. Repeat a few times if this does not solve your problem immediately. The other option requires you to have a little bit of technical knowledge. It involves removing the outer casing of the dvd player and locating the lens. Borrow some nail varnish REMOVER (not varnish, believe me , someone has made that mistake before) and put a drop on a cotton ear tip. Gently in a circular motion clean the lens. Do not press against the lens , just balance the cotton ear tip on the lens with your fingers. Now take another cotton tip and pull on the cotton to loosen it up a bit. Gently dry the lens in the same manner as you did the cleaning. Make sure no pieces of cotton got stuck near the lens after drying. Replace to cover and insert the power and it should work. If you followed either one of these steps and the unit will still not read a disc , the lens has blown and will have to be replaced. Depending on your unit , this will cost about half of the cost of a new player so I would suggest you replace the unit all together. I hope this information is helpful to you and please feel free to contact me if you need more information. Kind Regards Stephan

Thanks for using FixYa. Please tell me if you can hear any sounds from the player when the dvdv starts spinning? If sound is there then it is due to low diode strength. However, no picture and no sound then it may be a faulty/loose ribbon cable connector inside the player or the digital decoder is defective. Also try running a VCD or another DVD if it helps.
Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.
