    Sounds like the laser is faulty, or the laser lens is dirty. Your first (cheapest) option would be to buy a DVD lens cleaner kit.

    Take a cotton bud and wet it slightly with your tongue.

    Then open the compartment and rub the cotton bud over a lens looking type thing near the centre of the player.

    If you kids are like mine, they eat a jam sandwich before handling the DVD'd that go in the machine, and this dirt soon gets on the laser head.

    Please make sure its unplugged before trying this

    It will look a bit like this (clean the bluey thing in the middle)

    Oh my gosh!! If you are going to go the DIY route, at least use isopropyl alcohol on the cotton bud. I can't see how saliva, and what ever you ate last will clean the lens!!
