Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...Initially, bear with us; re-confirm and post back with the complete model number of the DVD player. Still, the only easy user doable attempts (if have not been tried):• carefully clean the laser lens with cotton buds lightly dipped in household alcohol;• exercise/slide the laser lens (without smudging it) from near center to outermost position a couple of times.Please post back results / observations of the above once tried.All others would be internal to the player.
