Pioneer 108 will not read right

I have a pioneer 108 that just out of the blue will not read right. It will read the cleaning disk I have for it. It reads and plays the songs off of it. It will not read any video I put in it. And when I put blank media in, it acts like its not even there. I am at a loss. Anyone with suggestions?

Will it read a pressed DVD Video disc?

No, it will not read a pressed disc. It says No disc inserted when I try. Funny thing about it, I burnt 2 backups with it the day before and no problems. The next day I powered up the computer and nothing. Would you consider this a dead drive?

You could clean the lens/drive.

If it won’t work in another computer too it’s probably dead.
