Question about GoVideo Go Video DVD/VCR Combo
If you know you're using a readable disc, clearly the drive is the source of the problem. It's possible that the drive's laser has become dirty to the point that it can't read the disc. Open the drive's caddy and spray into the drive with compressed air. The blast of air should blow away any dust buildup over the laser. Pop a disc into the drive and try to read it again.

1. Purchase or borrow a lens cleaner disc and try it first. You can find
these things really cheap at any large department store. They usually
get the job done well. However, you may need to clean the lens manually if the store-bought cleaner fails.
2. Remove the outer casing of the DVD player. Remove the screws that mount the top casing onto the bottom of the DVD player and slide the top casing off. This will expose the DVD deck, which houses the laser pickup lens.
3. Find the lens. The lens will be glass and under the DVD clamp. The lens will probably have a blue tint to it. If you are having trouble finding the lens, you could shine a light on the components and watch for the reflection.
4. Use a cotton swab and some isopropyl alcohol to gently wipe the lens. Just a quick scrub will do. Dry the laser pickup lens with the other end of the swab.
5. Give the lens a few seconds to dry and replace the covering of the DVD player. Test the efficiency of the player. If necessary, repeat the process.
Let me know if this doesn't work and we can try other options to get it working.
Thank you for using Fixya and Good luck.
