Your laser lens is probably just dirty , so try and run a cleaning disk in the dvd player, if none of your dvd's play then the lens is dirty and may have to be cleaned manually
but also some dvd players will only play certain formats ( i don't believe yours won't play them but check in the manual to see what formats it does play

You said disk. If you have tried different dvd movies then I would suspect a dirty or weak laser. If it plays dvd's ok but wont play certain cd's then I would suspect a compatability issue. You can try one of those laser cleaners at most dept stores or if you take it apart (with it unplugged) the laser is located where you put the disk in and it has a small plastic lens you can clean with a q-tip and alcohol. If that doesnt help the laser is probably bad, depending on the player it would probably be cheaper to purchase a new player.
Based on your reply on #3 I suggest that you dont even bother going forward. These type of DVD player recorders tend to be picky in the disks that it accepts. There is no way around that or fix for that so the best and simplest solution that I can honestly give you is to return the unit this early and save yourself the headache. (honest opinion) but if you want to work at it we can do so too.
Check the disc you're using for scratches and dirt. If the disc is damaged it won’t play properly, regardless of the DVD player’s ability to function. You can use a DVD repair device like the "Disc Doctor" to repair the DVD or purchase a new DVD.
Make sure the discs you're using fit the correct format specified by your DVD player. For example, if your DVD player doesn’t support home-burned DVD-R's, then you can’t use a DVD that you made at home. You may need to upgrade to a newer model, most of which accept the latest DVD formats.
Clean the laser lens with a DVD laser lens cleaning disc. DVD laser lens cleaning discs can be purchased at most electronics retailers or online. Insert the laser lens cleaning disc and follow the instructions.
Insert a correctly-formatted, undamaged disc into your player. Listen to see if it begins to read the disc. If it continues to make no sound and gives you the same message, then the problem is probably that your disc is not spinning in the device.
Turn the device off and unplug it. Take off the outer casing by removing the three or four screws and lifting the top piece off. This will allow you to see if anything is simply stuck or jammed. If this is the case, a simple nudge back to the correct position will fix the problem.
Clean the lens while the DVD player is open. A dirty lens is most likely the cause of your no-disc error. The lens should be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol and a cotton swab.
Take your DVD player to have it professionally fixed only when none of these other solutions solves the problem. A professional repair technician will be able to tell you if fixing your DVD player is worth the money.
Be careful how you use this, but u can utilize canned air to blow out the debris from your player.
get a laser lens cleaner kit from walmart or something, it will cleans your laser lens inside the dvd player for you, if the canned air and laser lens cleaner doesn't work, your last resort is to completely unplug the player to see if it resets itself, if none of those works i would turn the player in under warranty or take it back to the store.
the laser eye lens is probably dirty and a cleaning disk may correct the problem but if not then the unit will have to be opend up and cleaned manually ( there are creases in the laser lens that the cleaning disk won't get , but manually can be cleaned
My Smasung DVD/VCR Combo stopped reading DVDs because of a dirty read
head. It started by only playing disks sometimes, and progressed to
never playing disks. I assumed it was a dirty laser lens so I bought a
lens cleaner set. Unfortunately my player wouldn't play the cleaner
So I took it apart and cleaned the laser lens manually with some
isopropyl alcohol (the clenser that came with my cleaning disk), and a
lens cloth (that came with my glasses). Just open the case (starting
with the screws in the back) and remove the snap in cross panel that
obscures the lens of the DVD portion. Put a drop of cleanser on the
lens and gently wipe it with the cloth.
Oh and by the way, I take no responsibility if you break your own
player while following my instructions. My own DVD player was far out
of warranty at the time I cracked it open.
My friend this could be caused by many things everything from a dirty OR damaged disk, or wrong zone or wrong tv mode disk ie, NTSC instead of PAL OR VICE VERSA!
Or the laser unit could be stuffed or a cable connecting the dvd drive to the motherboard could be broken or out of place. Or the reader lens could be dusty or dirty. Some DVD disks need a damn good clean with warm soapy water to have any cleaning effect. clean and reins like you do the washing up! Check these things first. A word with a friendly local tech is the next step.....but we all know thats a money trail often more than the cost of a chepa new player!
you have dirty lens, try to cleaning with 100% cotton buds. or you have damage laser eye, or broken flex ribbon wire, but first you have to do is to cleaning the lens with cotton buds.. if not reading after you clean the lens! change the laser eye and flex ribbon wire.
