Hi There, I have a very nice SONY DVP FX810 DVD player which as suddenly stopped reading discs! Can anyone advise on what I should do and worse case scenario how much this might cost to repair? Any help would be much appreciated.

Kind Regards,

You could try a laser cleaning disk, example click here but if the laser has died, it probably wouldn't be worth fixing.

Thank you for your reply. I do have a laser cleaning disc, but it wont read that either.

It does not read a Cleaning disc, brushes clean the lense

Bingo - Just rubbed the lense with some camera lense cleaner on a micro fibre cloth and it works fine! Thanks for all your help folks! Tim.
