Need more info. Does the player accept the disc? If so, do you hear the disc spinning inside? If not, what does the player do? Does it kick the disc back out? Will this player accept and play other discs?
Hello If it does not play the cleaner disc, just inspect whether the disc inserted in spins inside it. You can check this by open the upper cover of the player, and inserting a disc into it. If inserted disc spins inside, and the player won't read it, the fault is with its laser pickup unit, and it should be replaced with same type and number. If the disc dos not spins, the fault is with the sled motor [the motor that spins the inserted disc], has damaged, and should be replaced. OK.
I don't think it would play on your DVD Player unless you DVD Player is "region-free" or "multi-region". Region 1 discs are intended for use with standard DVD players in North America (Canada and the USA). In most instances they can also be played on compatible "multi-region" DVD players (also known as "chipped" or "region-free" players).
Sometimes the motor that spins the disk will develop a dead spot where it will refuse to start up and spin, so my bet would be either the motor or the driver IC that powers it. Depending on your model number (it should have either a letter B,C,E or U after it) it may need the whole mechanism replaced. Also at around the 7th year, it has been my own experience that the laser pickup gets weaker and will either stop reading the discs all together or start skipping part way through, so a complete mechnism replacement is probably the way to go for this repair, unless you find that the replacement cost is under $150.
