I believe it is related to power as this issue started on one of these after turning on both screens. i am still dealing with millenium 3000 over a purchase of the same unit. i am going to be trying a 4th unit 'when new stock arrives' but i doubt it.

If it won't read any disc you put in, consider getting a new DVD player, the eye is most likely gone bad. If it is only one disc that you can't read i would suggest a Scotch DVD Cleaner kit. Cleans and Repairs discs, helps prevent skipping and mistracking, and repairs minor surface scratches improving disc audio and image quality.
You may have a bad laser. First, make sure the laser assy. travels back and forth easily, then make sure the table the disc sits on spins freely. If it still isn't reading, load a disc and immediatly flip it over to it's top and see if it works. Working or not, still a bad laser.
It sounds like U have a bad lens. Try a lens cleaner. If it is the lens, it wont read anymore discs. Sometimes it will also make a clicking sound and show disc error/no disc cryptic messages on the screen.
I also needed a new screen to screen power cord. Call 1-866-553-7521 and give them the model # PDE 2717. Ask specifically for the screen to screen power cord because the first cord the see when they do a look-up is the car to screen cord. The cost was $6.00 but adding in shipping brought the total to $15.99. Expect the delivery in 7 to 10 business days. Thanks and enjoy!
My PDE 2625n worked on the way to Mimi's and starting on the way home it displayed "Disk Loading..." then errord out with "Bad Disk". I dug through the internet and over 3 days found the answer.
Your laser is tired. Since the DVD player is cheap, replacing it is not worth the $$. Fix it! Remove the back cover (about 10 small phillips screws). It is important to know that their is a back plate AND a back panel; remove the PLATE which should have a model number sticker.
Now you should see a circut board with a set of polished rails which holds the read head. On the read head (by a ribbon cable ) are two very, very, very small flat blade POT screws. These control the amount of power sent to the laser. Turn the right most one CLOCKWISE about a 1/8 to 1/4 turn.
You can test your handy work by popping in a DVD while the cover is off and seeing if it loads. If all is ok, put it back together. If not turn it a little more. I used a car battery charger to run my test since it's about 25 degrees outside.
Be aware the more power sent to the laser, the faster it burns out (according to my research). By feeling is the DVD player is broke, so what? Am I going to break it? What the hell;) and I cranked away.
BTW I just got this fixed this morning. My kids are screaming with joy for DVD's in the car again! I'm thrilled that I don't have to spend $100 or more to replace this unit.
I had same problem, took the back cover off. two scews that are right were the ribbon connects to the read head I believe are potentiometers adjusted with eyeglass screw driver a couple attempts it worked. I also disconnected the plug for external battery and left unpluged since I don't use battery
that noise sounds like the focus is trying to see the disc as it has to focus to see or register there's a disc. Maybe the turntable slipped down a little or there's dirt or film on the lens. Good luck
