Get a dvd player head cleaner, if that doesn't do it then you may have to get the eye repositioned.

Tries websites like Amazon.com,Ebay.com buy a set that call a DVD or CD disc laser eye cleaner.Used it might help.If still happening than the laser eye itself it is dying and to be dead soon.DVD players that are having laser eyes are dying or don't read DVD or CD disc like say no disc all the time.Are not repairable except replaced the whole laser eye data's reader itself not practical,because u can a whole new basic DVD player just the same prices or even cheaper.These day a basic DVD players u can buy it like $40 brand new at any major box retailers stores like Walmart,Target..extra.

BAD DISC


Your laser eye is dirty or out of alignment. If you know how to clean it then do it, if not buy a cleaning kit for around $20. If that wouldn't fix it then have someone who know re-align it. Goodluck.

DVD player issues


Most likely the dvd is dirty, scratched, or chipped. Try cleaning the dvd disk with a soft cloth (chamois works best). Look at the surface of the disk and if it is scratched lightly, dust and dirt particles, fingerprints, etc will cause refractions from the laser light in the dvd player, which is then read as an error by the dvd player. Cleaning it with a soft cloth will sometimes help.

If that does not work, hold the disk up towards a light source and look for light coming through from the other side. If this happens, the disk is unreadable and unrepairable as the data source has been corrupted.
