Possible that the optical unit is not reading and might be defective.
If so you might have to replace, or use an external drive.
BBut make sure the DVD driver is intact, or reinstall to check once again if there is any hardware conflict.
If not the hardware is faulty. clean the lens eye and try .

Try different DVDs and then try different CDs. If it spits out all of them, then its time for a new optical drive.

My dvd player just reopens every time i put in a dvd. It wont accept any dics, it used to work fine but has been switched off for about 6 months


A lot of dust builds up in electrical devices in six months. First try using a DVD lens cleaner. If it pops open and you can see the lens, use a tiny amount of alcohol and a cute tip to very gently remove the dust around the lens. My DVD player is an old piece of junk that can read 99% of DVDs because they might have a tiny scratch on them. When it can't read one, it spits it back out.

The DVD player won't work; it spits the the DVD back out


If it is a burnt dvd, it might not play that format. If it isn't, I would take back the tv to where you got it from and get your miney back.
