Hello,

how long have you been using this player? The problem should be from the lens (laser).

The lens is weak and that's why it cannot read/load Cd's. The weak lens is also what's making it say no disk.

Get a lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens, but if the lens still does the same thing even after using the lens cleaner, then it means you would have to change the whole lens completely to a brand new one.

By so doing your player would play all Cd's with no problem at all.

Good luck.

If it is a tray-load drive, there is a small hole in the front. Pushing a straightened paper clip into this hole should unlatch the tray so you can pull it out.
Many slot load drives have the release tool entry way over on the left end of the slot. Push the straightened paper clip in there (it must go in perpendicular to the front of the drive, not angled in any other direction).
If you hit the target, you should feel something like a spring-loaded cam mechanism moving - it will take a moderately firm amount of pressure to start it, then it will unlatch and push more easily. Be careful - if the paper clip starts to bend on you, or it feels like you are bending something inside, you probably don't have the target. You should not need to apply anywhere close to the force to bend a larger-size paper clip with an end-on push.
If the computer is functioning normally, you should be able to remove the disk by starting the computer, then repeatedly pressing the eject key just before it starts the boot up cycle. To avoid having the disk pop out then pull in again while doing this (tray load), press once, pause for 3/4 second, then thereafter press twice rapidly and pause for 3/4 second. This will give you a good shot at hitting the time window between starting the optical drive and beginning boot-up and time to stop hitting eject when the disk starts coming out.
If all else fails, take the cover off of the drive (not installed or plugged in to anything) and study the mechanism. Tray loaders have a rack on one side of the tray driven by a pinion gear, either mounted directly on the tray motor or driven through a belt or gear train. You can manually turn the motor or an intermediate gear to unload the disk and run the tray out. Slot loading drives have a cage of curved bars with rollers at the edge of the disk - look for the mechanism that drives this cage and manually turn it as described for the tray load mechanism.
Do not try to pull the tray or cage directly - you'll damage the disk locking mechanism and may jam things up so the only way to get the disk out is to tear the whole thing apart. Always turn the disk load/unload motor, one of its reduction gears or belt-drive pulley (if present.
