My dvd player no longer works.....I tried to buy a optical lens cleaner but it won't even play that.....I have a feeling that this is what it needs though...I never knew since I bought it that I was supposed to clean it on the inside in anyway....

Re: same problem as Johnston
What you may need to do is determine if the motor is even spinning the disk. If not check the motor circuitry. You will need a schematic and voltmeter. Onc you have these items get in contact with me and we can start working on thie issue.

You can buy sens cleaner disc from most of the electronic spare part selling shops. buy one and insert it into the player. It will clean the optical lens automatically. The disc won't cost more, and can be used repeatedely.
Try cleaning your player by a dvd lens cleaner. Buy dvd lens cleaner that has a brush attached to it. if nothing happens you may open your player and clean the lens using a very fine small brush. the number one enemy of dvd players is dust. be careful not to touch the lens with your hands. If still nothing happens you may ask for a repairman to change the lens or buy a new one.
clean the lens with a dvd/cd lens cleaner (walmart, radio shack, etc.). or if you're feeling adventurous, remove the top, remove the dvd shuttle cover, and clean the lens with a q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol. wip it off gently ad blow it dry with your mouth (as opposed to a hair dryer). the alcohol will evaporate. put it together and try it out. if it still doesn't read, you may need to replace the optical pickup (lens and motor).
good day, true it's not advisable to use disc cleaner for it may also damage or scracth the optic lens inside.Possibly the optic lens of your player is either dirty caust by dust or faulty. but let's do hope it's only dust related and the only thing you can do now is to open and unscrew the upper cover of your player. Get a soft cotton buds, after dismantling the upper cover locate the optic drive lens and clean the lens by wipping it gently in circular direction. then try to play some DVD.
