Hi there,

This can happen if there is a problem with the disc (dirty, upside down) or if there is a problem with the DVD player itself.

If the problem is happening with all of your discs, then there may be dust on the reading lens inside the DVD player preventing it from reading any disc, or the lens may have failed and needs to be replaced.
