Question about Sony RDRGX210S DVD Recorder
Are you pressing the Progressive Scan button on the front of the Player? You need to look at the BACK of the Player. There is a manual switch just below the words "LINE OUT". This needs to be moved to the left where it says "Normal"
Try this please!

THis one should be easy--just read it in the manual--reset your video mode by removing any disks from the player, close the drawer, and then press and hold the "stop" button for five seconds. The green power button should flash red and back to green. Hope that solves it.

When you get no disk error, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will start operating on certain disks better than others.
In that case you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD/DVD will not be read, therefore the error.
Whe this problem is starting you may be able to read only CD, DVD or Blue ray, or for example only DVD-R and not +R , or only to read and not to write and so on. After more prolonged usage , often the unit goes losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all.
In your case the lens does not work on DVD , but only on CDs for the reasons above , that is quite common.
If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens problem.
Try first using a CD/DVD or Blue ray lens cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does not work you will need to disassemble the drive , and clean lens directly with q tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the CD/DVD lens, or the whole drive unit.
