    I have the same problem. My wife first told me that she thought it may have been something that our 2.5 year old did, but reading the other comments, may be a bigger issue. I am going to try to take it apart. It does not work anyway.

Electricity was off for several days. When it came back on, VCR/DVD wouldn't stay on. It flashes power/red, then VCR/green, then DiscIn/Green, then Play/Green, then turns off.

There was probably a power surge either when the power went off or when it came back on. There is most likely a problem with the power supply inside of the DVD/VCR. You should either get a new one or take it to a repair shop to be fixed (it needs new parts and it is not user fixable). To prevent this from happening again you should get a surge protecter. Sometimes you might have something that looks like a surge protecter but isn't. Make sure it says surge protecter on it.

Won't turn on manually


The reason you DVD player wont show turn on a green or red light is simply because there is no power supply entering the player.

This could be as a result of the player being exposed to a very high current and has burnt a capacitor on the power panel.

The best thing is for you to get the appropriate screwdriver,
  1. open the cover of the phone,
  2. get a meter reader and test all the component of the board,
  3. you will discover a part that is burnt,
  4. you will see a power pack that is connected to the main board by a cable or more,
  5. disconnect the cables,
  6. replace the power pack,
  7. couple it back
  8. try to turn it on.
Take care

Cant play anything on it

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.

This worked for me... mileage may vary.
