Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is Joe and I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.

When this happens it is usually an indication that the laser pickup assembly lens needs to be cleaned or that it has/is failing and needs to be replaced. Try resetting the unit and if that does not help then using a cd cleaning disc to see if that fixes the problem, normally it does not and that is due to it needing to be replaced.

Thank you!
