It sounds like the sensor to tell the microcontroller that the tape is moving is not working. If that is so, the VCR would probably do the same thing in FF or Rewind. If you end up taking this unit into a repair shop, have them check the DVD's software version (it should be 1.250) If below that number, have them upgrade that as well. You can check the version yourself by pressing 1,2,3,4 and then "display" on the remote while the unit is on and no disc in DVD. After noting the version, just hit "power" on the remote to exit this mode.

I have the same model and i can put a disk in and it will read it then the next time he same disc and it says no disc. when this happens I use a dvd cleaner disc, ( its a DVD with a little brush glued to it) it seems to help. and I know this goes against everything you have ever learned about discs. but sometimes I find if the disc is to clean and shiny, the 6t955b has trbl reading it, rub the disc on your shirt or pants and make some lite swirl marks on it. not sure why but it works

I have had this on a number of other players. First try the disks in question on another DVD player after giving them a thorough clean. If they work there then you know the problem is not with the disks.
After that (assuming the RH299 is actually working in every other respect e.g. on HDD), run a laser cleaning DVD/CD in the machine to clean the laser lens. If your machine is out of warranty then you can try opening it and cleaning the laser lens with rectified spirits/pure alcohol. Then try the disks again. If they still don't play, then it's off to a local electronics expert to see if realigning or replacing the laser and transport mechanism is economically viable, or buy a new machine.

To set DVD Region to “0”, download file “6000.zip” (often also called “LG6000.zip”) from here:
Save the file and then unzip and extract it to your hard drive.
Now burn the subdirectory RMTM0000 and its contents (not the text file) onto a CD-ROM (ISO format, “closed” CD-ROM).
Insert CD-ROM into the LG BD 370 P player, and when the Region Management System screen is displayed, set the Region Code to “0” using your remote. Once done, press “PAUSE” on you remote to save, and you’re done!
