The on/off control is part of the upper left corner of the device rather than being on the face of the unit or behind a panel. It was a bit too well disguised for me to see it, but my 11-year-old son, Seth, discovered it all too quickly. The DVD door problem was resolved by returning the out-of-box purchase to the store for one that was operational. With an older TV, though, I have yet to properly connect the VCR/DVD recorder so that it plays or records in conjunction with the TV. There is no coaxial cable I/O on the combination recorder to connect to the back of the set.
It sounds like the most like culprits are the laser assembly or it could be the Mpeg printed circuit board, often found attached to the laser assy by flat ribbon cabbles. the part number should be on the printed circuit board or laser assembly, otherwise obtainable from their closest aurthorised dealer. Good Luck.
If this device is less than a year old, still under manufacturers warranty.
I do not think many technicians will like to fix these devices due to the high cost in labor and sometimes even for newer devices is hard to find service parts.
Try unplugging the DVD recorder and plug it back in after a couple of hours, hopefully that resets the memory; sometimes it works.
