The problem is likely to be a jammed disk. All you need to to do is remove the cover by removing the 7 screws locking it on. The jammed disk will most likely be located where the dvd is read, this can be tricky to remove so carefully remove a screw at a time from the disk positioner (device with white disk on it, not 5 disk tray) gently trying to remove the disk after each screw is removed. The fewer screws removed the better. Usually only the screw on the right side needs to be removed to give rome to remove the disk.
If this unit is a few months old can you swap it with the shop you got it in? Errors like the ones you mention sound like the laser is not reading the DVDs. (Which you would expect to find on old players).
Just check you are putting in valid DVD's which play in other players and that you are putting them in the correct way (not upside down - yes it happens).
Basic DVD, CDrom Troubleshooting wrong disk ,disk error, First Clean the lens: http://www.ehow.com/how_2036275_clean-lens-dvd.html wont open, wont close, makes clicking/grinding noises etc. http://www.llamma.com/xbox/Repairs/thompson_dvd_tray.htm
It sounds like the player needs to be cleaned. Just go to your local electronics store and get DVD player cleaning disk. They are only like $10 and do the trick. Whatever you do, DONT blow into the player as it will only make it worse.
I'm sure you've found the solution by now, but I'm going to post a response for people in the future with the same problem. The unlock code for dvd's is found on page 25 in my users guide. I dont know if the code is different for every t.v. but mine is 1369. Hope this helps. Also I thought it was kinda funny because the same exact thing happened to my daughter with the same Barbie Island Princess movie the day after Christmas!
