I had a similar problem, and I took the player apart to find that there was a motor that has a snap-in connection to a circuit board and it was just disconnected. It controlled the movement of the reading laser. I could hear it make some noise. I reconnected it and it worked fine.
There are quite a few philips head screws to remove to get into the case. It slides off the back. Once inside, it's very simple looking, it is really un-intimidating. You may have 4 more very small screws to remove directly on top of the DVD tray. If you need to take it off to see under the tray that is.
I'd like to guess the problem is that the motor that ejects the tray is disconnected.

there is a ribbon cable in the DVD player that connect the moving laser head to the main circuit board. When this cable becomes damaged from moving over time, it will claim that your DVD is bad (even though it is not). Best to scrap the player and buy a new one.
Your lens might be dirty.Open the cover of player and identify the lens.Its a little glass eye.Get a clean cotton cloth dipped in methylated spirits gently rub surface of lens. Give some time to dry and replace cover.You should be ok.
