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.

DVD player into your TV and power on. Make sure you plug the right
component cables into their corresponding inputs on the back of the TV.
This is usually done by simply matching the colors of ends of the
cables with the colors of the input holes on the back of the TV.
Turn TV to the proper input to display the DVD. Make sure there is not a DVD in the player.
burn-in reduction screen saver DVD in the player. Allow a few seconds
for the DVD to start playing. A pattern of white "video snow" will
appear on your screen. The entire screen should be taken up with this
the DVD for at least several hours; this will help wear the TVs
phosphors evenly. Depending on how long the image has been burned into
the screen, the amount of time you should play the DVD varies a lot. A
good rule to follow would be to play the DVD at least four times the
period the image has been displayed. If you have an image that has been
on the screen two hours a day for a whole month, run the screen saver
for at least 240 hours
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.
depending on your tv there is a function to turn screen off. most tvs come with this feature. on the remote there will be an power key with a red or black button. this is to turn the screen off. if it does not have this function and there is no screen saver setting on the dvd play there is not much you can do for this situation .
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.
what is the model and brand of your dvd player kindly post it on this website and please say how long the set have been refusing disc, and how old is the dvd player will be awaiting.you can contact me through fixya or my email firstname.lastname@example.org see ya
I have the same problem! tuner works just fine. I cant access the dvd mode. i can only access tuner, video input, and rear cam. Ive tried different cds and dvds and it did not help. Also it seems like the ejection mechenism is running continuesly.
