I have had the same problem a few times. All I do is eject and re-insert the disk until it recognises it, this seemed to work for me

That is most common problem of DVD player recorder,when getting old cannot read DVD discs,only video cd and audio cd,sometimes does'nt read video cd also. The problem is in inside of the unit the DVD processor is defected already or maybe the solder is crack, need to resolder again or reheat the processor solder, or that processor change with a new one,so the performance will back again,good as new.The lense of that unit is good,i can assure that.

Tips for a great answer:
Please try to put in an ordinary audio CD track and see if this is detected. If yes the optical is working, if not there is no laser scanning and the possibility of the head being faulty is high.
Now certain cleaner disks are not read and so will not be tracked. Hence the rejection but the best is for cleaning manually the laser head eye with a cotton bud very softly and without any pressing of the lens eye.
If there is still no result then watch the CD if it spins or tries to spin. If the head unit moves up or down to focus or in and out of the drive, if so the board seems to work correctly and the possibility of the optical head being the suspected fault is closer.
Finally try to see if the set records on a DVD with a given signal source. If not the fault is confirmed.
But if any of the above seems otherwise we must recheck with possibilities of the processor board
