I purchased this DVD player about 6 months ago and probably only used it a handful of times. Now, when I put a DVD in, it says it is a bad disc. Even if it is a brand new disc that has never even been played. I tried to put in a DVD cleaner to maybe alleviate the problem, but it wouldn't even load that. Again, it said it was a bad disc. I've taken it apart, cleaned it manually and still 'bad disc' is the only response I get. When it worked, it worked fine, even though the buttons are so small its almost impossible to see them. Buyer Beware!!
