No valid disc message displayed. Disc is spinning.

When a DVD player starts doing that, it either needs to be cleaned, or something is going wrong with the DVD mechanism inside of it. You can purchase DVD lens cleaner from any large retail store that has an electronics section. However, if you clean it and the problem persists, it will likely be cheaper to replace the unit rather than trying to have it repaired unless you're under warranty in which case any repair or exchange will be covered by said warranty. If you call the manufacturer they will give you your full range of options.

I am receiving the message "no valid disc" on the dual screens...

it appears yous direct drive motor is damaged. When a disc does not spin, it will say the same as a bad disc. You can easily get this fixed, but not cost efficient. Better off replacing it the component.

My is not spinning and gives the message that no disc

Hi dommami_2000 -

This is most likely a problem with the hardware, assuming you've already tried multiple discs. If the disc does not spin at all, the drive motor is likely bad. I would recommend excercising whatever warranty came with the unit, if still available.

Let me know if you have any further questions.
