DVD player will not read disc DVD surround sound player makes screeching and squealing noises while searching for disc. Seems as though it starts and stops, speeds up and slows down etc until it finally gives up and says no disc. It does this on all discs. I have tried disc cleaning disc but it doesn't help or it simply can't find it either.

Ouch! Sounds like the optical read head is miscalibrated and the player has issues finding the index track on the disc to load It correctly. Not sure about the squealing / screeching .. that could be a mechanical problem but the speed up and slow down are part of the read/ loading process
