hi i have sorted the problem i went on line of the make of the thomson freeview and their was other people with the same problem and they help me by reading their instrutions on their page now it is working .
check the microswith near the hinge .
its generally located on near the back right corner of the player , on the control surface. it looks like a very small white plastic button or pip. sometimes these stick down and look like part of the player casing, when they actually are a switch. it needs to be raised , so when the lid is closed it pushes the pip down and turns the screen off. Try prising it gently free with a pin or needle.
this happened tome and i was on the verge of binning it. when i looked at the manual and it says
power light flashing slowly means screen turned off.
if the light is flashing very quickly then im afraid its knackerred and just not worth repairing.
if this is helpful to you then just drop me a line at
Unlike the suggested solution to reset to factory settings by pressing the stop button on the DVD player itself with the tray OPEN, in my case I succeeded only with the tray CLOSED (no DVD inside). The light flashed to red e back to green and it was done.
I had the same problem, After googling for a few minutes I found the reset procedure for this player.
1. Turn it on. 2. Eject any disk you have in there and close the tray. 3. Hold down the "STOP" button on the player (not remote) until the green light flashes red and the system reboots. 4. Insert disk and enjoy.
Sounds like the power supply in the dvd player has failed. It works just well enough to turn on the led infront but as soon as you go to do anything it shuts off. This is common in cheaper dvd players. Unless you can troubleshoot electronics. Or know someone that can. Your best bet is to unplug the unit and disassemly and retrieve your dvd.
