After power outage front display blinking "16".

I had a similar issue where after a power outage, the player would not power up.
I removed it from power and took the cover off looking for a fuse. Could not find anything so I put the cover back on and plugged it in and it worked. My theory is the electronics needed time to fully discharge in the circuits. I would leave it unplugged for about 24 hours. I left mine unplugged for several days. I hope this helps.

Have a DVD V3500 DVD+VCR player, several years old. Had a power outage last night, now get a high pitched whine on the left side when I plug the AC power in. When it is plugged in get no power/functions.

You will probably need to replace the thing causing the noise for a start. Use a straw if you can't pinpoint which part is making it. Place the drinking straw to your ear, the ones that have a bend in them are best for this job.

Cannot read disc

call support from manufacturer on how to reset your player,
For instance, on Samsung players after it is powered on you hold in both channel buttons for 10 sec and the player restarts. essentialy like rebooting a computer.... that fixed mine that had the same problem
