My DVD player won't play DVDs

Hello everyone, I'm new here and I'm having problems with my DVD player. Everytime I put a dvd in it, it tries to read the dvd, but can't, and it then starts making a clicking sound. I tried using a DVD lens cleaner, but when I put the cleaning dvd in, the player couldn't play it, so the lens wasn't able to be cleaned. What do you guys think I should do? Do you think I should tried getting it repaired or do you think it's broken? I've had it for 3 or 4 years; it's a simple dvd player.

3 or 4 years is a long time.

Maybe time to buy a new cheap one.

What brand / model is it? Some of them don't have a very good life span.

I'd agree with _chef_ and consider just buying a new one - if you only want a DVD player you can pick up a pretty good one very cheap now.

Re: My DVD player won't play DVDs

go for a DVD RW they are pretty inexpensive right now and they are in general better readers than regular DVD players

It would cost you more to fix it than it's worth, you can get a good Sony for around $50 now days
