Remove the DVDs and try a CD. If that works, your Optical Pickup)laser has worn out.

SOURCE: I have an LG HomeTheater

In the past this has been caused by the laser not reading the disk. This can be caused by either a dirty laser or disc as well as an unformated disc. Most likely your laser is getting weak and is not picking up the info on the disc. I have solved this before by opening the cover on the dvd and simply unplugging the ribbon connector from the circuit board to the laser, leave it unplugged for several minutes before re-connection and then try to use the dvd again. This may clear it up and it may come back. Short of replacing the laser unit in the system, this might help for a while. If this continues and does this on a variety of discs not just one, then you need to decide if you want to spend money on a repair or replacement. If you wish to try and replace the laser that can be done also, but if it were me I would save my money and get a good quality player and you will get a warranty on a newer player. I personally use Sony and have had very good luck in these units. You can also run a cheaper dvd player through the theater system by hooking it up as an outside component thought the audio video jacks on the system.

Have a look on or around the door flap. There should be a tiny hole that you poke a needle or pin into. That will release the disc tray. The disc may be the wrong type (CD or ??) or it may damaged or like what my Daughter did once, put it in upside down.

Make sure your speakers and dvd player disk is clean. Skips are common from the lazer reading and will read much better with a quick check on the cd.
