Question about Televison & Video
I have the same problem. I have a 5 year warranty from the company I purchased the unit from. I am not sure if they will replace it or not. I am reluctant to buy another one with this known issue. We have enjoyed the unit for nearly 3 years with no issues.

OK lets start off by getting rid of the CD lens cleaner (CD cleaners do more damage then good). Now first we need to clean that lens with a DVD lens clearner (finer cleaning surface). Try to run the DVD cleaning disk twicw (no more) and try to play a DVD. If this does not work. You may have to test the laser power. get a schematic for the DVD that you have, and use it to let you know the specific power measurement of the power, This is done by using a laser power meter, you may not have one, so this becomes a moot point, but on the off chance that you do, use the laser power meter to measure the laser energy and make sure it is to specs as seen on the schematic. If you do not have a laser power meter., well I hate to tell you this but you may have to get a new unit. See the problem is the process of fixing this problem is simple if you have the right equipment, but if you don't you are at a disadvantage.

Might be the type of movie - some of them are only able to play "G" ratings. Try this: click <play> 1234 <play> It will likely unlock the dvd that is in and will begin to play. You will have to do the 'code' each time, or there's an unlock program you can purchase.

The unit has two lasers one for the cd and one for the dvd, the one for the dvd is bad and the whole laser assembly needs replaced. Cheaper to buy a new player.... sorry
