Question about Nakamichi DVD-10S
the laser is probably no good or the tiny motor that spins the disc is no good.there is a clamper assembly that goes in the hole in the disc.turn it and see if it spins freely.there is a bronze bushing on the top of the motor driving it ,and a small drop of light oil on the bearing will make it work again if it is gummed up..if the motor does not get the disc speed from 250 to 600rpm,fast,the laser does generate the proper info and the computer says error.yes the motors can be replaced,but the cost is as much as a new one

Failure of the Optical head assembly. You can try to clean the head lens eye as a last resort.
If not the optical head must be changed, get the same type model OE component.
If not familiar change the Head with the help of an expert as the procedure to remove the static proof, solder short must be removed.

i have got the same complaint some days ago. your players spindle motor is faulty.
its winding have some problem. spindle motor is that one on which the dvd spins. when u insert the dvd it is not rotating at the required rpm. thats why it is not reading. the problem will not be with video cds . because it doesn't required a high rpm. replace the spindle motor. it will not cost a lot. its sure that ur problem will be solved.
if then also the problem remains,
your player's laser pick up unit have some problem with its DVD laser. there are two types of laser in dvd players. one for reading and playing audio cds, mp3 and video cds and the other for reading and playing dvds. in your player dvd laser have problem. dont think that these are two separate unit. the lasers are mounded in the same unit. if any of the laser get damaged you have to replace the whole unit.
if u need any more assistance feel free to contact me through fixya.
bellow is the image of laser pickup mechanism
