Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with this but I'll do my best to help you.

Hello Greg,

This type of problem is often caused by a contaminated laser lens. You can attempt to clean it by blowing out the disc tray/slot area with a can of compressed air for dusting computers (keep the can upright only so you don't get chemical propellant on the lens).

If this doesn't help, you can try a specialty cleaning disc (Allsop 23321 Ultra Pro Carbon-Edge DVD and CD-Drive Cleaner) which has little brushes that clean the lens more thoroughly.

If neither of these cleaning steps help, then this is more likely a hardware fault, which could include a bad laser emitter or pickup, faulty spindle motor or laser transport, bad d/a converter, etc. Any of these issues would require repair/replacement.

Let me know the results, and I'll advise further, if needed.

Nathan thank you for your help however I am in the bush at the moment and do not have access to a can of compressed air or a laser cleaner. When I return to the city I will buy a can of compressed then and then rate your service. My DVD player is still not operating. Thanks again I will message you soon

Nathan, I have thank you for your service and I have told you that I am not able to check and see if your advice was any good to me. You are very impatient I have informed you that once I have bought a can of compressed there I will try and fix my DVD player and then let you know with your advice was any good. Please be patient I am an honest man and will get back to you when I reach the city and try and fix my DVD. Greg

Thanks for the update, Greg.

I haven't set any further messages. The site (not me) sends out automated reminders to rate/close the question.

That isn't from me and I have no issues at all waiting for you to test this out at your convenience.

I do have to reply back here, as I have to make the last post or I won't be notified when you come back, just disregard the emails as they aren't from me and we can pick this up whenever you are ready.
