Universal Blu-ray Player no longer plays any DVDs

I’ll try to explain my weird situation as thoroughly as possible. A couple years ago I got a very expensive region-free Blu-ray/DVD player from an odd brand called iVid. After about a year, it started getting finicky with DVD discs. Now to rule out one thing… all of my discs are scratch/smudge free, since I actually take proper care of my belongings. The player is at the point now where it rarely ever plays a DVD. I might get lucky if I open and close the tray about a hundred times. Those 99 other times, I hear several faint clicks and the display keeps saying “no disc”. Yet Blu-ray discs play flawlessly. I have no comprehension of hardware. I’m assuming that there are separate optical lenses (laser assemblies?) for both Blu-ray and DVD discs, and that my DVD lens is shot. Since it plays Blu-ray discs without a problem, I’d rule out motor issues. Advice would be greatly appreciated. I do not want to shell out another $140 to those iVid jerks that sold me my lemon.

I cleaned the lenses. It seems to work a lot better. I tried five different DVDs (some copied/blank, some original), and only one couldn’t play. With the one I couldn’t get to play, it made a squeaking/grinding sound the player never made before. I may have somehow loosened the plastic circle that sits above the disc when it’s playing. I don’t know for sure. I’ll be keeping an eye on the player to see if the fix holds out. Thanks for the advice.

Make: iVid

@cedarlakeinn Since it plays Blu-ray discs without a problem the issue will be your DVD laser having either failed or are dirty. You could always try a commercially available lens cleaner and see if that makes a difference. If it does not you will have to give us a make and model of your player so we can see what options are available.
