Sometimes: But with unpredictable accuracy. I suggest that you clean your disc for optimum performance.

Ensure the disc being used is not damaged or dirty. If it persists, then the reader and / or its tracking rails have become dirty. Initially, try a laser head cleaning disc.

I have the magnavox blue-ray nb500mg1f for not even a year. Its not playing anything anymore blu-ray or dvd. Keeps saying (disc read error, playback feature may not be available for this disc)

whit all optical drive units disc read errors are caused by one of three things: a damaged or dirty disc, a damaged or dirty laser/optical eye, or a defective drive motor not spinning the disc at the correct speed. since it is less than a year i would recommend contacting the manufacturer and request a repair. it should be free but it wil take a few weeks to be completed.

It may be that you just need to get a cleaner for the DVD player (disc with like little brushes on it). They are not expensive and have worked well for me in the past when my kids have done the same thing as your little brother.
