This has been addressed in other threads, but simply is either the lens having become dirty or the optics assembly starting to fail.  Carefully open the unit being careful not to tear the ribbon cable going to the open/reset switch assembly.  Remove the cover of the disc assembly and clean the lens with alcohol.  Re-assemble and try.  If this doeesn't work, you probably need optics.
