Hi,

Welcome to just answer.

The most likely and common problem in this case is that your unit's laser eye is failing.

 

As you have updated your unit with the latest software/firmware and also used the cd/dvd cleaning disk to clean the laser eye .......still the unit fails to read the discs.

 

Which clearly indicates failing laser eye and replacing the laser eye will definitely solve your problem .

 

I will be happy to help you if you need any further assistance.

 

Best Regards!
