Mine started doing this just the other day and stopped playing the DVD it was playing. I found a solution for a portable player that worked on this one. You need to open it, eject the tray and slide the laser carriage back and forth all the way two or three times gently and by grabbing on to plastic that hooks around the metal bar on the right if you are facing the player from the front. Then plug it in and play a CD all the way through and this recalibrates the laser.

I wonder how many people throw away their DVD players when this is all it needs. Makes me sick to think about it.

    I should add that the solution I posted above does not work alone. My esdvd100 did the clicking and no disc thing again and this time I had to take a q-tip with just a tiny bit of rubbing alcohol on it and very gently clean the laser lens first. It's better to not dry it with the dry side of the q-tip because you may scratch it and the alcohol dries quickly anyway. I did this after I noticed a fine layer of grainy dust on top of the metal housing of the laser lens/apparatus. I also did this many times before moving the laser carriage back and forth last time but did not mention that because it did not fix it alone the last time.

    It seems that both actions have to be performed. It may also affect playback if your player is on a slant or the cover is off of the player. I am not sure but expereinced issues with these two conditions. It wasn't until the player was level and the cover in place (but not screwed in) that things went completely back to normal.

    I would edit my solution above but I don't see a button for editing.

    The latest solution that I arrived at is to thoroughly saturate the q-tip with alcohol and press the excess out on the inner side of the bottle, clean the lense gently, then dry with the dry side of the q-tip. I am not sure if moving the carriage in and out is necessary. However, mine starts acting up again within a few weeks.

    I am going to look into making sure that the disk is spinning level and make adjustments if it isn't. I just fixed a three disc stereo system that had fallen out of whack. The disc was spinning on a tilt, rubbing against the tray. I had to raise the back end of the lower clamping part that housed the spindle and laser until it was level then it was alright.

    Other possible issues are the motor needing oiled or the ribbon cable becoming disfunctional (not attached or burned up).

My dvd drive doesn't work

If it happens for only one particular disk:
Bring that disk to a game store like Gamestop or Rock30 Games and have them professionally clean the disk for a couple bucks.

If it happens for all disks:
Clean the cd/dvd with a laser lens cleaning kit. If that doesn't fix it then the cd/dvd drive will need to be replaced.

My RCA RTD317 has problems recognizing most DVD movie disks. It will play some disks most of the time and all audio disks, so I figure the lasers are working. What could be the problem?

If you've tried cleaning the Laser with a Lens Cleaner Disk or directly with Lens Cleaner Fluid and a QTip without any improvement then the Laser is Failing.

It takes less power to read some DVDs than others and a lot less power to read an Audio CD. The Laser will continue to deteriorate until it won't play anything.

Please try to clean your DVD Disk Drive using a CD or DVD Disk Cleaner to clean the laser lens of the DVD Disk Drive like dust, dirt and other small particles that causes the lens hard to read or eventually not read the laser lens. IF you don't have a Disk cleaner you can find it in any computer shop or video shop in your place.

My dual layer DVD burner wont read any media

When was the last time you cleaned the dust out of the laser head? Or your PC, for that matter? Just asking.

There are cleaner disks that work sometimes, or you can go in with a cleaner foam swab with a little alcohol on it. Worth a try.
