DVD player not reading discs. Any DIY advice?

Hello Everyone, my DVD player suddenly isn't reading discs. It just makes a ticking noise. Does anyone have DIY repair advice? Thanks! Kristina

Truth be told, a number of things could be wrong with it. Perhaps the Drive that spins the disc itself isn't working properly. I would recommend to just replace it. Any DIY you try would involve taking it apart and most likely you won't have the tools to fix whatever is wrong.

If its still under warranty you could send it off for repair

Clicking sound indicates optic lens is trying to focus on disc, 2 DIY options, try both. First make sure discs are clean & have no finger prints or smudges on them, second, if the lens is dusty you can open the drawer and shoot some air duster striaght in the center (the compressed air duster you find in the computer dept. for cleaning keyboards & dusting screens). You can put the straw in the opening about 1 inch, directly in the center, make sure the can is upright. If this doesn't work, it might be time for service.
