I opened up the unit, thinking that there would be a huge ball of dust over the laser or something, but everything looked rather clean. When I insert a CD or DVD, it starts to spin, and then ejects the disk. I could see the laser (red light) being emitted, so it looks like that is working as well.
I tried using a lens cleaner, but the little brushes are at the edge of the disk, and I noticed that the head really only travels from the inner centre to about half the radius. i.e. it never reaches the outer edge...
Any idea as to what may be happening?
BTW Before it stopped completely running any disks, it started being selective about which disks it would play.

Try either using a DVD/CD laser cleaning disc or if you are able to, open the case and manually clean the laser lens with a cotton swab. It may only be a dusty/dirty laser. If you choose to open up the DVD player, give all the internals a dust off with a clean household paint brush and a vacuum cleaner (*use care on both the laser lens and internals of the player to avoid damaging it). If this does not solve the corrupted image and audio, the laser may be at the end of it's life and the unit will need replacing.
i think you were cleaning the machine so when cleaning these type of machines you must be very careful.Okay you must change laser unit and don't blow these machines when cleaning because once the dust goes to laser unit it gives you a code/paper misfed so try to change laser unit
These copiers have serious toner dust issues. Light copies are usually caused by dust in the optics (the mirrors) and on the laser glass.
Take off the main copy glass and gently clean all the mirrors and scan bulb underneath it - be careful.
If you remove the drum unit and look inside the cavity you took it out of you will probably find a huge toner mess. the laser glass is situated in this cavity and needs to be cleaned - just clean whatever you can see...
the laser cant read the disc either the disc dirty or scratch or the laser has dust or hair on it get can of duster and blow it in there then try if that dont work you will need to open it and clean the laser off with a cotton ball or q tip and while it is open just go ahead and blow some duster around in it to clean it to help prevent any other problems.

I had the inverse problem on my unit - 7 months after I bought it brand new it wouldn't read DVD's, but would read CD's no problem -- I bought a replacement loader from LG, swopped them out myself and now works 100%.
Turned out the laser for reading DVD's had gone - they use different lasers or wavelengths or something... :)
Dust has a tendancy to collect under the ball at the 3 contact tips (you should look under the ball)and it is possible enough dust collected when the ball was removed, that the dust particles became a large dust ball and lodged under the ball making it impossible to move!
Remove the ball and clean the area and replace the ball and it should work fine.
This problem shows that there is a dust in you "laser sccaning unit".
Clean the mirrors of laser assembly (Only experience person can do it means mechanic of printer).
Please covered your printed with cloth or vice versa. Do not leave open and protect it from dust.
