The laser is probably on its way out if it is not recognising DVDs. Unfortunately this is not an economical part to replace, and cannot be repaired (cleaning it may help with a CD/DVD cleaner disc but there are no guarantees on reliability).

Depending on the age of the player, and taking into account the fact that Blu-Ray players (with DVD playback support) are becoming cheaper to buy, while repairs to existing older models become more expensive, and with parts not always being available, it might be cheaper and easier to buy a new player whenever you can.

You can submit this unit to a service repair centre in the meantime if you wish and obtain a quote on the likely cost(s) (as well as a second opinion from there) by all means, then you can decide afterwards what course of action you wish to take. Up to you, but I don't believe this unit would be economical to fix or particularly reliable in the long term.

DVD NOT RECEIVING DVD DISCS


Hello
The loading mechanism has the trouble. The inserted CD or DVD does not engage into the laser assembly unit properly. It may be due some fault with its loading motor or loading belt. Check these.

My dvd player wont read my movies


Hello
Check its Sled Motor. Sled motor is one which get spins the disc we insert into it. If it is faulty, discs won't spin, and the set won't read anu discs, and will show no-disc display. OK.

My receiver loading for a while then is saying no disc after i inserted a DVD. This just started happening after i had a movie on pause for a few seconds. Now nothing is playing CD or DVD/


I had a similar problem:
Found two failed electrolytic capacitors on the powersupply of the DMR unit
(One was 1000 microF, the other 2200 microF) Can tell by the tops being slightly bulged out instead of being flat. I replaced them both, now unit works like new.

With the power turned off, open the DVD Player, and then open the top where you load the DVD into the player. Locate the laser lens and notice that the laser is attached to a transport assembly that moves the laser diagonally outward in a slot. 1. Slide this assembly outward to the end of its track. 2. Slide the assembly back inward to the closest inward position. 3. Repeat the process of sliding the assembly outward and then back inward.4. Put in a music CD and let it play all the way through. This helps to calibrate the laser head assembly movement. When the music CD is finished playing. 5. Put in a DVD, and you should have a working unit again This is a factory solution from Mintek that was given to a customer who ask for help with the forever loading disc problems. This solution may work on other models of portable DVD players. Most portable DVD players use this type of transport mechanism. Try this solution it might work for you. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

DVD PLAYER NOT READING DISC


Well I have been repairing dvd players a while now and the main problem spots are laser ,spindle motor, laser tracking motor and the biggest culprit and un suspecting one the lens cable .....most of them range from the lens cable to the spindle motor though... the constant movement of the lens in watching a whole movie causes the cable to unknowingly and slowly break and if the spindle motor is defective ,on inserting a dvd the disc spins slowly and you may hear the lens chirping ... so you can check those....

Disc does not spin/struggles to spin


If the relevant problem only occurs while watching a DVD movie, and everything is fine besides this (i.e. if the device lets you listen to an Audio CD without creating any problem) the problem might be related to the buffer. Because it simply needs larger available space of RAM to use when spinning a DVD compared to a CD. In my opinion, the problem of your DVD player is derived from a buffer underrun state. If I am right, there is nothing to do! Unfortunately, I have to say that if it was a computer , I would easily suggest that you upgrade your RAM. But, sorry..
