As the first step, can you please remove the power from the player and wait 10 minutes.
Then plug the power in, turn it on and try to play a disk

Hello Richard, have done what you suggested and it says"there is no disc"

Thanks Terry
Have you tried multiple disks?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I've tried DVD and CD's

Thanks, ***** ***** the problem
It is the lens that has faulted. It will either be dirty or malfunctioned.
I advise you first to purchase a lens cleaner which you can get here
Once done, check if it can then play disks. If not, then it means the Lens unit has actually malfunctioned. In this case, you are going to have to return the unit to have this replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.
I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
