Won't turn on/red key shaped light on

I've had my dvd player for quite a while, and Sunday while watching a dvd, my player just stopped in the middle of the movie. I pressed the eject button to start the movie back over and the disc door wouldn't shut. So I lightly pushed on the door and it closed. I ended up frustrated went to turn off the player and it would not turn off. So I unplugged it and plugged it back in and now a red key shaped light shows up above the time area and the player will not turn on. Is this machine a mechanical paperweight or can someone help me?? Thank you!!

Just in case that happens had the front panel locked out and need the remote to do anything, to lock and un-lock it you press the "lock" button on the remote

Dvd player skips and stops

You may need to buy a lasor cleaning disk. It's a disk that has a little brush on it and it quite literally dusts the lasor inside the dvd player. (higher chance of it being this if it's an older player, or you've had it a few years.) Where to buy:

Popping sound and nothing works

You could have a power issue, or any number of issues with some of your chip boards. As the inside of TV's store a lethal amount of electricity I would strongly advise you get the tv checked by an RCA repairman. It may end up costing you more money to fix the issue than repair it. Ask the tech to give you an estimate before any repairs take place.

Won't work

usually condinsation has built up and all the belts and gears have dried up. try leaving in a hot place or use hair dryer. if that doesnt seem to help usually its the laser is bad and is not economical to repair unit.

DVD player froze, now only turns off

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.
