    I am not sure where the sensor is, but I have cleaned all through the camcorder disc area with rubbing alcohol and tried putting the disc back in and am still getting the disc error... Is there anyway you can explain to me where the sensor is?

    Do you know if the laser lens circuit is expensive to fix? Is it worth getting the camcorder worked on in your opinion?

Hello.
I would recommend that you take the camcorder to a local repairer to get a repair estimate.

If the disc is not being read, then either the laser lens circuit is dirty and needs to be cleaned with rubbing alcohol and cotton swab, or the laser lens circuit is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the door is not closing properly, check that the latch is not out of position or broken or not closing. Check that all internal springs are attached properly.

    The sensor is the glass piece. Little circle glass is the laser's eye. Next to the circle that spins the disc.

    Depending on how old it is. How many pixels, Is it expensive? It may cost $125-$250 to repair. You can order the piece and put it in yourself if you know how to use a soldering iron.
    You can try adjusting the lens,
