We have a Panasonic HT70 Home Theater Sound System. It suddenly stopped playing CDs and DVDs. When we put one in the system tries to read it and then says no disc. We have tried unplugging the unit and letting it sit and we put in a disc to clean the lens but it still doesn’t work. We aren’t sure if the unit is able to spin the discs so there is a chance the cleaning didn’t happen.
We called Panasonic but they said we need to take it to be repaired. However, I was wondering if there’s anything else we can do before doing that. I’m also wondering if it’s worth fixing since it’s not a high end unit. I don’t want to spend a few hundred dollars when I can go out and buy a more updated unit that has basic features like digital audio inputs.
