    you need to clean the laser and adjust the cog (white gear in the disc reader) until it works. if you cant get it to work, you may need to adjust the power output of the laser. you can find guides on how to do it many places, just google it.

    btw, model # 30001 (v4) is what I have and apparently has more problems on the laser than any other version

    if you have $50 you could buy a replacement Lens on ebay, just check your to make sure your buying the correct lens. It's easy to install
