The unit worked well for the amount of times it has been used as a DVD player, probably about 6 times. This year (and a few times last year), our last outing, the dvd player would barely play a dvd. The audio was sketchy (breaking up) and the DVD disc had to be removed and inserted several times before the laser it seemed, would catch. Most of our dvds are not playable even though they are without dirt, scratches and are all original. Do you think the unit is faulty or do you think maybe the laser lens needs cleaning when it is so new? I have yet to remove the unit and of course it is out of warranty. Any thoughts would be much appreciated.
Good chance you may need replace the unit if the cleaner makes no difference. Our Jensen failed and had to be replaced.
