you may have one of the many units that have defective chinese made capacitors .. they last about 2 years .. if you can take the cover off .. look for capacitors (tubular about 0.5 inch long and 0.25 diameter (labels are heat shrink) .. the top should be flat .. the defective caps will have the tops bulged up .. if so you need to find someone thats handy with a soldering iron .. or you need a new DVD player .. the cost to repair in a TV shop is usually greater than the cost of a new unit .. the capacitors themselves are not expensive radio shack type items .. when installing new capacitors, polarity is important so put the new ones in with the - sign pointing the same way as the old ones ..
