Try cleaning the lens with a shot or two of compressed air or a cleaning disk.

Optical drives don't last forever. I have replaced several over the years. It is a possibility that yours could have died. But before you pull the sheet over it, try taking it out and putting it back in while pushing it firmly... it could be a loose connection.
