SOURCE: CST.IN Light
I fixed this problem on mine today. I read the manual online and found that CST.IN light means there is a cassette in the VCR. Since I didn't have a cassette in the VCR at the time I suspected a problem with the VCR and attempted to take the unit apart to disconnect the VCR. With the cover off I powered the unit on and a wheel in the back came on until the machine shut off automatically as it has been doing. I was unable to disconnect the wires but after unscrewing most of the VCR mounting screws I tried powering on again and this time the wheel in the back shut off and the unit stayed on. I put everything back together (minus a few VCR mounting screws) and put the cover back on. My DVD player and TV controls work fine now. I put duct tape over the VCR since I don't plan to use it anyway, and I am happy.
I wish this was a better solution that I could say exactly what I did, but I can't. All I know is that it's the VCR that caused the problem and I rarely use mine anymore anyway. And I know nothing about electronic, but I figured that taking the unit apart was better than buying a new DVD player right now. If you feel the same way I suggest you give it a try. Good luck!

Without sounding too pretentious, I would first advise you to use a QUALITY disc for exactly this reason! Don't be afraid to spend a little more on some TDK or Hitachi/Maxell DVDs! **** DVDs will fail as much as 25-40% of the time, making them no bargain at all!!
That being said, I would also inquire as to exactly what methods/products were used in the transfer process. There are several different ways of writing data to the disc (DAO, TAO, etc...), as well as many different video formats (did you select "Make a video CD" from your application? This will only work in digital video disc players, NOT DVD players!). Only a few (if that) will typically work on any given player.
On that note, my advice would first be to copy the data from the disc back onto your PC if possible (if it isn't still there already), or even from the VHS tape again, and take a look at the file name, particularly the extension, of the copied video file(s). If the extension is not .mpg or .mpeg, then it is NOT in DVD format, and converting to the appropriate format would be a necessary part of your transfer process. Also, make sure you are creating a DVD, not a video disc! They are different! Rewrite the data to the disc in the appropriate format on good quality media using the same process as before and you should be good to go!
I hope this helps! If not, please comment with any additional information and I will respond ASAP and we will get things figured out for you. Thanks for your questions!
