Listen to the console carefully...if it sounds like the disc is being read and spinning then the lens could be dirty. If the disc does not spin it could be two things, one of which I have experienced and repaired. 1: the disc motor could be dead, or 2: the lens cradle is stuck somewhere on the track (I had this one).
If the cradle is stuck then it will make a barely audible clicking sound. To fix this I dismantled my box and the disc drive (WARNING: It voids the 3 year warranty!!!) and pushed the cradle to the center of the tray. Afterward, I opened and closed the tray to see visibly if the laser got stuck again...it didn't. I put a disc in and it read perfectly. So I pieced it all back together in hopes that I was successful. I did it at work earlier so I don't know the end outcome. So far it sounds perfect, disc and all.

this problem is with close open switch.if open cover to insert cd you will find one very small switch which sences open or close.put a drop of cleaning oil in it press it 10 times or replace the switch
When you opened it the cog connected to the motor which opens and closes the lens probably shifted and no longer has traction against the ring around the inside of the lens which turns it to open and close it. If you open the camera up again be extremely careful - the lens has loads of springs inside it - lose one of these and it won't work properly. I opened up the whole thing to try and fix my lens which had been jammed in after a friend dropped it. I fixed the lens but couldn't put the damn thing back together again to many tiny parts and no guide to the jigsaw!!
Ok looks llike a lens problem..Try this Get a lens cleaner CD with liquid..Put two drops of liquid on the brush of the lens cleaner..insert the CD in your drive and play it..If it plays fine otherwise you will need to replace the lens..Get it replaced rather..should run you about 25-50$.If you want to get it repaired give it for repair only in a Philips showroom.. Good luck!
Karen. you really opened up a can of worms there. Here is what I would do. buy a blank vhs-c tape unscrew it from the bottom and use it to compare to your project tape. as far as spicing goes that can get tricky. I used to do it all the time with 8 tracks, showing my age here, but they are not as critical. the tape will have to go on the back side of the film and can not get to close to the top or bottem of the film. remember the video head can not touch the tape you apply. it's a little crazy but I guess if you have small fingers you can try it at your own risk. Good luck Karen.
It is called the slider assy. The slider moves the laser assy back to home or start position. It is a small belt underneath or there is gunk or hair in the gear mechanism. A very common problem with CD/DVD players/recorders. Very good though that you saw it was not comming back to home place. I wish I had a manual to assist you but I do not. Im telling you the most common problems with the slider mechanism. Good Lck
