Okay, to start with, the average owner of this brand of DVD player is probably not going to take the top off this to see if the laser is lighting up or if the flex cable is good or bad. Even if they wanted to, they wouldn't see anything that they can fix anyway. I popped the cover on mine to see what I could and it was no help at all. I cleaned the lens and watched it open and close and load discs, etc., and it still won't read them.
The bottom line is it's cheaper to buy a new one than to dink around inside these trying to fix them. However, consider a different brand as this problem seems to be indemic to this brand. The very same problem cropped up on a replacement from the same company. On a budget? Look for a certified refurbished model of a more reliable brand. I replaced my last (ever) Coby with a refurbished Phillips with progressive scan and upconversion for the same price as a new Coby of this type (under $25.00 US).
