The DVD player said bad disc. My wife pryed open the dvd compartment and believe pulled it off the track. The machine keeps trying to reset and you can hear the drive grinding even when you shut the machine off. Only way to stop is to unplug. What do we do to fix?

The laser lens circuit itself is faulty if cleaning doesn't work. The capacitors and other components can wear out and overheat and burn out through time. You can get another from many suppliers including ebay. and http://www.toocle.com www.tradekey.com
I also have a bose Lifestyle 48, and the same problem has happen to me where the DVD player would not open,
Unplug the unit, Wait a few seconds, after plugging the power back in, immediately hit eject so that the player does not have time to spin up and try to read the disc again
I too had a similar problem with my DHC FL7D. The front moving panel would not move up. The screen used to say 'please wait' endlessly whenever I pressed the DVD button. I thought the drive belt might have got cut. There is a drive belt for the front panel to move upwards and downwards. Since that was intact, I disconnected the front panel from the main body to access the DVD drive system. I had to disconnect many cables and PCBs to do so. Then I opened the DVD compartment and removed all the DVDs which were stuck and re-alligned all the disc trays to its original state. I checked if all the drive belts inside the DVD compartment, it was ok. Also I tried moving the laser lens assembly to check if it was moving. Since there was no problem I closed the system. <br />After I switched on it worked again . I think it might be to do with the fact that the disc trays might have been stuck for some reason or may be the there was a software glitch.<br />
I've just spent the last 3 nights trying to fix that same issue with my
player. I ended up pulling out the dvd tray assembly, and making sure
there wasn't anything broken inside or obstructing other pieces. Come
to find out, my 1 year old had pulled on one of the trays and it pulled
the tray off it's tracks. After that, it would just go to "init please wait"
forever. I pulled the side track cover off and aligned the tracks
manually. Everything had to be absolutely perfect or else you'd get
nothing. After the fact, I realized that there were two holes in the
bottom of the player that you can take a spare small gear (which is attached to the plastic cover on top of the dvd tray assembly)
and stick it in there and manually adjust the tray positions to make
sure everything is aligned properly. After messing with it three days,
it ended up being quite simple to fix. Everything works like a charm
now. If you need details, feel free to email me.
