    I have the same problem of the disc error. After inserting a DVD the player makes a clicking noise when it's trying to load and after a few minutes I can a message that says disc error - please eject disc. Playback feature may not be available on this disc. I get this message after inserting several different DVDs. Is there a solution for this?

It is possible that there is some dirt on the laser lens. With great care the laser lens can be cleaned.

eHow, Clean Laser lens:

If cleaning the laser lens does not fix it, there is the possibility that the laser unit and or its assembly, or the related electronics has a fault.

the message you are getting is the machines waay of telling you that it can not read that disc. which means you will have to burn your discs in a different format. or your are using a type of disc it does not recognize.

It may be that you just need to get a cleaner for the DVD player (disc with like little brushes on it). They are not expensive and have worked well for me in the past when my kids have done the same thing as your little brother.

DVD player problem

You may have had a brief power outage you did not know about. Then the DVD player needs to be unplugged from the wall and started up again or your lens may need to be cleaned Because your dvd player is only made to play region 1 discs and vcd's are region 2. You need to buy a dvd player which will play all region discs or is rated region 0 which is the same.
