Had this problem when I start using it with "component" video cables on a new digital wide screen TV. I fixed it through the DVD player's setup menu, by changing the "video output" setting. On my Samsung player there are 3 options: S-video, 525i and 525p. It was set to S-video, and by changing it to any of the other two settings the problem was solved.

Either the Laser needs to be cleaned or it needs to be replaced. To clean, purchase a DVD player cleaner that uses fluid. roughly 20.00 run it a couple times and test. If it works, great. If it doesn't, replace the unit. It's cheaper than the repair. Hope this helps
After variety of different tests and findings I have resolved this issue. It appears that the DVD burner was not in good working order and the DVD player was not at fault. Thanks you to all who answered and responded to my problem. Many thanks.
First try a good quality dvd cleaner. If that does not cure the problem then the video cable may have went bad. I had a system that the cables were never touched & after a few years it needed replaced in order to get my picture back. Hope this helps & please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks.
When you say it won?t read are you trying to play commercial DVD movies or read DVD data disks?
If you're trying to play movies then you need a couple of things the first being some type of player program. Real player works as does Windows media player but usually DVD drives come with a striped down version of PowerDVD or WinDVD.
If you in fact have a player installed and when a DVD is inserted in your drive it doesn't play it may not be configured to automatically play DVDs. Try opening your player program and trying to manually play your DVD.
Let us know if you have any success or if you need more assisted. If you do let us know what player program and operating system you have and any error messages that may appear.
