Re: "no disc" showing when disc is inserted.
The lens cleaners are nothing but litle brushes that more often than not make the situation worse. If you can get at teh lens, use a cotton swab and a little alcohol to clean it. If that does not resolve the problem, the optics are starting to fail. The message is generated after a number of attempts to read the Table Of Contents off of the disk.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I have the same problem with my portable dvd player and found that cleaning the lens of the player using a non-alcolhol wet nap for cleaning eye glasses worked well. I also found the rail that the optics runs along while playing needed a very small amount of silicone greese applied using a Q-tip. You may find that the optic unit may be "stuck" somewhat but can be resolved by gently moving the optic along its guide using a finger.
This changed my unit from not working at all, to working intermittantly sometimes having to vary the player on and off to recongnise the disc. Hope this works
grinding sounds is from the dvd drive itself. Sounds like its not sitting properly in the drive or the holder that it sits in is going bad.
Either way replace the drive and that will take care of the grinding sounds. Also the more grinding sounds that happen, the more of a chance you take on your dvds getting scratches on them and going bad eventually.
Hi, according to what I understand the unit works for some situations especially but you cannot visualize the content, in this case the problem that you one presents shows off to be Cd-DVD's unit that this trumping, if the equipment this one even in guarantee, you must come to an CAS or Center of Authorized Service, in order that they diagnose and replace the unit
I had this same problem with my Apex AD-500W DVD Player. I decided
since everyone said the player basically needed to be replaced it
wouldn't hurt to go through the buttons on the remote just to try and
figure it out......I DID!!!! I turned on my DVD Player, inserted a
disc, turned on my tv
and then hit the SYSTEM Button right below the power button until the
screen said MULTI and the machine started working perfectly. There are
3 settings in that button, PAL which made my screen go crazy, NTSC ( i
have no clue) and MULTI(this one made it work)! Hope it also works for
all of you!!!
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.
