Hi Joespivey,
If you have necessary tools and test instruments, know safety precaution in basic troubleshooting try the steps below to solve your problem.
Assuming that the disc is good.

1.Clean the lens. - because of dust build-up, the lens can't read any disc. Try clean the lens by soft cotton buds. Be careful while doing this.
2.Replace the ribbon - Check the ribbon connected to the lens from the main board for scratch, damage. Once it has an open line then of course the lens can't read the disc. Also try to erase the contact by pencil eraser. If you've done the steps above and the symptoms still there then the next step requires you a little knowledge in soldering technique and reading the ohmmeter.
3.Check the motor - Check the motor that spin the disc with an ohmmeter. You can test it using the ohmmeter (x1) even it is connected on the lens assembly.Good motor - reading should be fairly high and it will spin. Bad motor- reading will drop to low resistance and will not spin.
Hint : 50% of my repaired unit the above parts are commonly caused of the problem.
If you confirmed that you have a defective motor then replace it with a new one. Before replacing the new motor you have to check the clearance of the disc holder with the old one. The clearance should be the same as the old because if not the lens will not read the disc if it is too far or too close.
If the above steps didn't cure the problem, high chance that your optical lens was faulty.

If you can't do the job yourself, I would advice you to look for a professional to troubleshoot the symptom.

Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

How do I get my lap top to work


That page is the BIOS "basic input output system" it looks for an operating system usually on a hard disk. Either your hard disk has crashed or there is a problem with the motherBoard and the hard disk controller. You can try removing the hard disk and putting back in as it could be minor corrosion where it plugs in.

2008 cadillac 6 disk dolby dvd/cd sound system will not play or eject disk


Alien is right, pull the Radio Fuse, then put it back in and eject the CD/DVD. Happens to me sometimes with burned DVDs, seems like the player is picky on the CD/DVD media. Rebooting the device (by pulling the fuse) is the only way to eject it.

Stuck game wont eject


Try tilting the wii at several angles. The disc may come out. If not try hitting the eject button at several angles.
If all the above fails, this(although risky) may work.
1. find another disk.
2. slide into slot, just enough to get under the cd(NOT ALL THE WAY IN)
3. lift or puch down on the disk depending on the side the new disk is on
4. hit eject while lifting or puching.
5. If this does not work the system may need to be sent out
