The laser head is covered in dust so the sensor detects a very low return signal. This is interpreted as a bad disk.
The sensor must be cleaned. Open the unit, access the mechanism and do a thorough cleaning inside it, access the laser head and using a can of compressed air blow all the dust on, in and around it - be especially thorough with the space between the lens and the sensor.
