Blue screen on my 27" Advent tv/dvd combo

I have had this tv for about 3 years and all of a sudden when it's turned on it shows a bright blue screen with some brighter horizontal lines. You can see a shadow of what is supposed to be on the screen behind the blue. Is this something that could be repaired or should I just chuck it? What shoudl my next step be?

the "NO DISC" could mean that the heads are damaged, the disc(disks) [ you did try more then one?] are dirty, not the right DVD format.Even a small finger print,smug can cause problems!
you will have to take the TV\DVD apart to find the problem. I would suggest, buy a simple DVD player and connect it to the back or the [AV] audo\video plugs.

Disconnect the TV\DVD combo from power source (A\C) for two to three days, Replug power cord & see if it returns to normal. 2nd attempt:: Unplug A\C power from wall and take a piece of bear wire or any metal (paper clip, screw driver ) and SHORT the two blades of A\C plug for at least one FULL day.DO NOT PLUG INTO a\c SOCKET FOR ANY REASON !!! After one full day, take the short accross the blades. Replug into A\C power socket. see if that fixes the problem. P.S. Your TV should have a button that switches from TV to DVD play right in the right front.
