I beleive my Centrios portable dvd player can't read dvd's any more. It will still read a music cd so my guess is the laser eye isn't working properly any more. Does anyone know where I can get replacement parts for dvd players?

With the power turned off, open the DVD Player, and

and notice that the laser is attached to a transport assembly that
moves the laser

of its track. 2. Slide the assembly back inward to the closest inward
position. 3. Repeat the process of sliding the assembly outward and then
back inward.4. Put in a music CD and let it play all the way through.

Most DVD players that would display such a message even with a known good disc inside signifies that the that the laser eye/lens is not reading the disc. This could probably be attributed to: 1. dirty, damaged, inverted, blank, un-finalized burned CDs or DVDs; 2. defective, weak burned-out laser eye/lens; 3. defective slider shafting (where the laser eye's carriage moves.
A few things you can try: 1. Use a CD cleaner (readily available from most computer shops); 2. use a can of compressed air and blow through the inside of the loaded disc area; 3. gently tap on the top cover where you estimate the reading/laser eye/lens would be; 4. gently press on the tray door once the disc is loaded.
this not be corrective, perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional such as those in a Service Center. Alternately, your friendly neighborhood electronic shop should do just fine.
Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Check to see if the disc is spinning. You can do this by one of two ways either
a:) Listen for the disc to spin after inserting it or
b:) Place disk in drive right way up (so that the label is not upside down). Load the disc and eject the disc again to se if the disc has moved i.e. the writing may now be upside down.
If the disc does not spin then it is likely that there is something wrong with the disc motor. If it does spin then the issue is more likely to be with the laser unit. Try cleaning the lens but if this doesn't help it's likely to be a more serious and ultimately more expensive problem.
