Question about Panasonic DVD-S35 DVD Player
When I insert the disk, it automatically shuts the dvd player off. The dvd player remains on without a disk.
No code beginning with H comes up because it shuts off quickly. Also on the display when there is no disc, there is a small letter c displayed in addition to NoDISC display.
Thanks for any suggestions!
Bought one of these at a local surplus barn, coming from active duty in a classroom, which exhibited this behavior. Researching online and finding the spindle motor to be the usual culprit, I opened the case, ejected the tray, and proceeded to wiggle the spindle. I threw a disc in and gave it a half-spin; it visibly tried to spin the disc but gave up and shut off again. I tried again, giving it a bit more generous a spin. This time, starting off slow, it picked up speed, and successfully read the disc. Ejecting the disc, turning the unit off and on, etc did not not change the behavior; it continues to load and read discs without problem.
So, to summarize: Open the case, throw in a disc, and give it a good spin before it tries to spin up. If the spindle motor is still alive, it may just be stuck or stalled somehow, and may be fixed with a little push. Note, though, that I've had this player for less than 24 hours, so I can't attest to the longevity of this fix.

I have the exact same problem. On Monday the DVD player worked fine and then when we went to use it on Tuesday it just shuts off by itself when I put in a DVD. And like you experienced it stays on with out a DVD in it.
What did you finally do to fix it?

I've seen failure of the spindle motor to cause problems like this. Problem can also be a leaky diode in the power supply.
