I was watching a movie on my dvd player on my tv and the movie started skipping. I decided to take it out to clean off the disk but the disk looked fine. It doesn't have any scratches on it. I tried putting it back into the dvd player and the dvd just keeps reading and reading and doesn't actually play any dvd's. I tried several dvd's along with cleaning out any dust in the actual player. I don't know if there is any way to fix it or if the dvd player is just done for. If anyone has any advice on how to fix this problem let me know!

Its laser Picku Unit is faulty. Either it may be dirty, or its laser beam intensity has sent down. Just put a cleaning disc, and play it for atleast three times. If this helps you, you can understand that the lens of the laser assembly was dirty. If this also doesn't help you, repace the laser assembly with same type and number is the only remedy. OK.
I've seen this happen many times do several brands of dvd player.
The one questions if where do you have your dvd player ? In an entertainment cabinet ? On top of another piece of electronic equipment perhaps ?
The reason I am asking these questions is that I believe your dvd player is overheating. Typically that will cause it to stop working properly. You need to make sure it is getting better ventilation be it outside of a cabinet or making sure it isn't sitting on anything generating more heat.
If this isn't the case then please post back and let me know. The more information you can provide the better I can help solve your problem. Thank you for choosing Fixya!
Does sound like the laser. Realitically, not worth repairing. I'd say you'd be worth connecting a cheap DVD player to the system - then the Sony can carry on providing the surround sound audio and the new DVD player can provide the video. Then, if the cheap DVD player is still going, it can move to a bedroom TV if and when you replace the surround system....
Otherwise, I would imaging the speaker set (and even the non-working DVD player) on its own might fetch a reasonable price on an auction site - anyone who has a stolen DVD unit will probably be desparate for the speakers as Sony don't sell them separately!
Return the unit to the store which you purchased it from. You have an internal problem with the scanner (led) You can first try to clean the led this could be your problem. They sell lens cleaning dvd disks. try it, you have nothing to loose. If this does not work, just bring it back.
first thing i would do i clean the lens with 90% isoprople alcohol and a q-tip, if that doesn't work watch the laser eye again and the movement is the laser look like it tries to catch up??? i would put a dc volt meter on the motor and the motor should stay at lower voltage if it climbs then there is something with the rails or worm gear. let me know what you find out.
