The most probable cause it broken solder connections on the headphone/ext speaker jacks. If you know someone who can solder fine detail parts...have them try. I dont know what a TV shop would charge but it DOES need fixing
I have the same problem! The only way to fix this is to replace the motor that spins the DVD. if you take it apart and spin the DVD the movie will play. The motor is just wore out and has no torque to start the play process. I am still looking for a replacement motor for it and haven't found anyone that carries the motor required. Only Audiovox so far and they want 180 to send in and fix.

The PCB board for the CD controls has slid out of its bracket slightly into the pathway of the CD.
Open the DVD player, there are 3 screws on back corners and one on the bottom. Use a penny in the slots where the speakers go and gently separate the back from the front, but only very slightly. Be cautious now, because there are several wiring bundles between the front and the back. Reach into the gap, at the top where the CD control buttons are, find the PCB for the CD controls and gently push it back into place. Put the front and back together, power up and see if you've cleared the pathway.
Similar experience with a D1020. A very small component on a surface
mount PCB developed a cold solder joint and eventually came off
altogether. If you have a small low power soldering iron and
experience with very intricate soldering, you can attempt a repair. Do
not imagine that a repair shop can repair for a reasonable expense.
Sometimes the displays can't be sent to another tv or monitor. Make sure that isn't turned on. Sometimes there can be a short in the wiring if your unit folds up to play like a notebook computer. You can try moving the screen back and forth and see if the picture changes. If neither of these solutions work, contact audiovox and see if it is cover under warranty.
