  1. Will it not read any commercial DVDs or just one ?

    no, it will not read any of them. I've been told to clean the lens, but if it reads the cd and recorded copy why should i clean the lens?
  3. Try opening the case and cleaning the laser (disconnect from power wall socket first) .

    I use a cotton bud and a simple alcohol or propanol.

    Avoid pressure on the lens mechanism by holding the cotton bud at the far end. Dry off the same way after applying.
