The problem is in the capacitors used in the power supply. They can be ordered (they are relatively cheap; about 25 cents apiece) but must be ordered from the internet. You also must be good at de-soldering and soldering the new ones in. The bad capacitors can can be identified by the bulging tops of the cylinders. I had this problem with my Cyber Home DVD recorder, and ended up just replacing all of the capacitors in the PS.
Hi. I have one of these units with the same problem
Mine will play audio CD's OK but DVDs are troublesome. I asked around on various forums and it appears that the DVD laser in the unit has failed or is on it's way out. (There are usually 2 lasers: one for reading normal CD's and one for DVDs).
I have noticed that my unit gets quite hot when in use and has very poor ventilation. Unfortunately any build up of heat can cause the laser diodes to malfunction and eventually fail and I think that's what has happened with mine.
If you still have a guarantee on your unit you could try and get it repaired otherwise it will be an expensive job and it may be cheaper to get a new unit.
