Nec 2510a dvd/cd problem

I have a nec2510a burner that won’t read or burn dvds anymore… however, it will read cd-roms…

does this mean that the laser is going out?
any help would be appreciated.

Hi & welcome.

I think you’ve answered your own question there. It’s not unheard of for one of the lasers to die like that.
You could try a lens cleaner or taking the top of & cleaning it, but it’s likely to need replacing now.
