It will not take in any discs, the motors start to try and take a disc in , the disc makes it in about half way or so and then it spits it back out, and makes whirring noises if i just hit the eject button. The hard reset does not help either. Please help!!

A no disc error on any electronics device indicates one of three problems. 1. The disc reading lens in the cd/dvd/brd drive has gone out or is dirty. 2. The drive has a "stabilizing" screw that must be tweaked. 3. The disc is not spinning due to a bad motor on the drive or something is blocking it. If you can hear the disc spinning *whizzing sound* its not a motor issue. You can try running a cd lens cleaning disc but if its not registering it probably wont spin, thus wont clean the lens. You can attempt to clean a lens with a cotton Q tip and rubbing alcohol but be warned, touching the lens can scratch it and destroy it. If your object is not under warranty you can have a professional look at the drive to check the tension on screws, this is usually a huge problem found in XBOX 360's. Make sure its not the disc by trying other working games/movies/etc. If all else fails you can always purchase a new dvd/cd/blu ray drive and have it professionally installed. Xbox 360 $20-$40, PS3 $100-$150
Although its not common, another solution is that cables on the drive might be loose, but usually you cannot open the device; the two cables are power approx. 1-1.5 inches long and the output plug which is usually half the size.
If you can disassemble the CAP(disc holder) and place it on the disc while it is on the spindle and at the same time push the (hidden)lid switch you will see the lazer"s lens move up and down while trying to focus on the disc. If the lazer see's the disk it will tell the motor to turn. If it dosn't see the disc it will not turn the motor. Some model will kick the disc to spin a little while trying to see the disc. This type of player can be tricked into seeing the disc if you spin the disc a little by hand when the lazer's lens is moving up and down. At that point in time it might see the disc and take over the motor and spin up to normal speed. If the disc is an illeagal copy sold as a original the quality of the disc could be the cause. If the player is very clean (no small hairs stuck to the glue that holds the lens in place) (never clean with a cotton swab, use a shammie swab with rubbing alcohol or isopropal 99%) the problem could also be that the lazer is just not strong enough and the whole lazer-motor assemble should be replaced. Older units could use 1 drop of light motor oil on the motor shaft at the bearing to help start the motor when the system kicks the disc to spin. If the player reads the disc at the time you manually spin the disc maybe a good cleaning and oiling is all that is needed. The disc spins clockwise. if the disk spins counter clockwise replace the whole assemble. Maybe simpler, just give the disc a good clockwise spin and quickly close the door and push play while the disc is still spinning. if it starts, there you go. Don't use caned air on the lazer assemble. it will blow the dirt further into the lazer mechanism under the lens and make matters worse! Good luck!!
that click click is the laser trying to focus and it is hitting the disc.
the biggest failure is the disc motors.they are very tiny motors and if they do not spin fast enough,the laser can not get the info it needs.
sometimes banging on it lightly while it is focusing will get the disc to spin.
with the price of new ones,it is not worth repair.
that is why i got out of the repair biz in 1995
I think you have a mechanical problem with the load and eject mechanism. Either a spring or a gear has popped out of place or may be a switch got stuck and malfunction. If you are mechanical incline just open the unit up and look for anything that look out of place, becareful and remember what goes where so you can put it back in order. That is how I fix mechanical problem. Good luck.
It sounds like a mechanical error. It's not a quick fix. You (or more likely a repair shop) would have to pull the transport and reallign a bunch of parts and possibly resurface the rollers. It's a GIANT pain in the @$$.
Well I have been repairing dvd players a while now and the main problem spots are laser ,spindle motor, laser tracking motor and the biggest culprit and un suspecting one the lens cable .....most of them range from the lens cable to the spindle motor though... the constant movement of the lens in watching a whole movie causes the cable to unknowingly and slowly break and if the spindle motor is defective ,on inserting a dvd the disc spins slowly and you may hear the lens chirping ... so you can check those....
