Similar problem powers up and spins away but does not play. So I finally relented and took a screwdriver to it - took the back off and looked to see if anything was cracked or broken. Nothing obvious I plugged it in(Children dont try this unless you are smart with electricity) cranked it up pushed all the buttons multiple times and decided to plug it in to the TV.
All of a sudden it worked "Allah be praised" as they say in Iraq..
Anyway was 1hr into movie it stalled - unplugged it and shook unit cranked it up again and it is working- so far.
Ultimate solution is to deep 6 this sucker and spend dollars on a name brand unit Sony Samsung Philips.

Try to play a music on cd instead of playing dvd. It it plays keep playing until playey got hot and drive off moisture on circuit. Let it cool down then try play dvd. If it can play severy dvd in sequence, then your unit is repaired. Keep using it to avoid condensation inside the dvd player.
Do a hard reset. Unplug it from the socket, the DVD and leave disconnected for 4 hours. This may or may not help, but it is a necessary step to restore all internal software codes to their factory settings.
I had the same problem, my recorder was past it's warranty though. So I opened the case (4 screws on sides & 3 [silver] screws on rear) then unsecured the HDD (4 screws with rubber grommets and 1 screw with thin metal flange) I then disconnected the data and power cable (as illustrated on HDD) powered the whole unit up and got nothing (obviously) reconnected the HDD and plugged the unit in. It powered up and then turned itself off. I then turned it on using the power button and voila, it worked perfectly!
All HDD stored videos were still there too! The unit even held the same time.
i have repaired a couple of these cyberhome dvd players-if you are getting a no disc,it is because of a defective disc table motor or bad flex connector(between lens & circuit board).if your unit is not powering up, you should check the power supply board in the unit(.there are capacitors that go bad) i recomend these checks be made by a tech. rkelecworks.
Considering the DVD player is inside of the unit, and the unit will not play a DVD (I am assuming you put in a DVD) while in DVD mode, the conclusion I would draw would be that the unit is defective and should be returned.
To give details to this deduction:
DVD Mode has power, just is not producing an image. --Known because it can play games.
