DVD player won't play


The dvd player no longer functions. When I put a dvd in the slot, it does not play. The software loads as if it wants to play, but the dvd is not read. Twice I got an unable to read disc error, thereafter I have not gotten any errors. I am able to remove the dvd. But, when I close the dvd slot, it makes an horrendous noise to the extent that I have to leave the slot open. I extended the dvd tray today and realized that on the bottom side of the tray there is a paper tape like part of the dvd which is getting caught and/or stopping something from occurring which needs to for a dvd to play. If anyone has any ideas for fixing this problem, preferably inexpensively, but fixing it nonethe less, I would greatly appreciate it.
