The only "kill switch" I am aware of is the switch on the DVD compartment door. I don't have your exact model but, on my model, this switch is activated when the door covering the DVD is closed and deactivated when this door is opened (kills the DVD spin and reading laser). Look for a small square hole in the DVD player deck and a corresponding raised piece of plastic on the DVD door.
There is no simple "at home" solution to any of these problems listed. However, Since it tries to play or at-leastplaysCd's, then that will indicate that affordable repair is possible. I have already repaired several of the Dual units already. With the 7" Dual screen sets, I had to replace the laser assembly or the spinner motor (not spinning fast enough). With the 8" Dual Screen sets, I found mostly that the laser ribbon was binding up in the movement of the laser and preventing it to move to proper position. These repairs should be done by a qualified technician.
Considering the DVD player is inside of the unit, and the unit will not play a DVD (I am assuming you put in a DVD) while in DVD mode, the conclusion I would draw would be that the unit is defective and should be returned.
To give details to this deduction:
DVD Mode has power, just is not producing an image. --Known because it can play games.
