Unplug for atleast 15min and turn back on, if this doesn't work you will have to take top off and get a small philips screwdriver and take of carriage on top of tray and manually take disc out and find out what is causing the problem. If the reset does not get it.

Lack of communication between DVD player and TV

I have just had the same problem. I changed the scarts over in the back of the DVD player, i.e top to bottom and bottom to top. I can record from the TV one way round and to view it and finalise etc I have to change them over. I have no idea why this is happening but it is a quick fix so I can record the rugby this PM.

No Disk

The funny thing about dvd players is they just stop functioning after awhile. I've had mine for 2 years now (4 players before that), and that's a personal record. On the flipside I have a sony dvd burner that won't read CD's!

Really the only thing i can suggest is updating the firmware via cd if it supports it (if you give me your make and model # i can check on it). I would also try different DVD's- like ones that you know used to play. Some newer ones have really aggressive anti-piracy garbage that will keep older players from playing them.

Make sure you are not using DVD+R dics - the player won't play these. It is OK with DVD-R.

Does it freeze in play also? Might be an optical pickup issue and require a replacement pickup.
