If I turn the unit off or it turns itself off, It won't come back on, There is no display or any noise. If I unpluge it from the back and keep pluging it in and out from the back of the unit it may come back on in about 5 minutes.Thats been going on for about a month, but now it won't come back on at all.

Try unplug,replug the unit back like about an hour later for the unit for resetting itself back to factory setting.If getting the same result the unit might have a shorted motor drive for the disc tray.Or shorted control panel on the unit itself.Well,this thing a basic DVD player only wright?If u can tries take it aparts and check out tries to repair it ur self that great.If u tries the shops,not worth it.Trash it.These basic DVD player only are very cheap now.U can get one brand new like $40 dollars.
It sounds like there is something inside the dvd player, that isn't supposed to be there, that is keeping the tray from retracting fully. Try unplugging the unit and gently turning it upside down and giving it a little shake. Not too hard. This might jar the item loose, you will hear it knocking around. If you do knock something loose turn the unit so the front is pointing up and let the foreign object fall to the back of the unit where it hopefully won't interfere with the operation of the mechanisms inside. If you don't hear something come loose, remove the screws on the bottom, sides and back of the unit to remove the top cover. Make sure you have unplugged the power before you do this. take a look and see if you can find something jammed in the track or the gears for the tray. If you do gently remove the item with your fingers or a pair of needle nose pliers. Once removed replace the cover and away you go.
If there is nothing blocking the tray and the mechanism, you probably have a gear system to close the tray. At some point someone must have pulled fairly hard on the tray causing the gear teeth to jump, check and make sure they aren't damaged or stripped. You are going to have to them either remove one of the gears (or pull it up so it can turn without turning any other gears) push the tray back into the fully closed position and replace the gear. Once you have done this you will want to test to make sure the tray will function properly. Place the top cover back on, but don't secure it with the holding screws in case you need to open it back up again, plug the unit in and test the tray. If it works unplug it and secure all the screws for the cover and away you go.
Otherwise you are going to have to play with the gears till it is back in the proper starting position. If your hearing some strange noises and its not working, then the gears are probably badly stripped. You can contact the manufacturer and see if they can sell you some spare parts or direct you to someone who can replace it. Though at this point simply replacing the unit may be less expensive.
Reset your player. Press and hold the FF and RW buttons at the same time on the main unit itself for 5 secs. Afterwards, unplug the player from the power source and let it sit unplug for a minute. Plug it back in to the power source and turn it on.
If its still the same issue,I just want to inform you that your unit laready needs service for repair.
I had the same problem.
1. check that the disk region is the same as you unit ( it is the global of the world on the CD has a number in the middle, now check the back of your player. They must be same region.
2. Turn the unit on
3.Press the power button and hold for 10 Seconds
3. Turn the unit back on, wait for the time to display.
4. unplug the unit and leave unpluged for 30 seconds
5. plug the unit back in and turn it on, the time should not display should be blank.
6. Unit should go into startup wizard like it is being started for the the very first time. follow the prompts.
7. In the setup menue, I believe it is under disc settings, select set to factory settings.
Once I completed these, I put the netflix movie back in and it now runs,
Okay. I found that there IS a manual release for the disc tray UNDERNEATH the unit. It is a sort of toggle lever that you have to slide to the other side and that releases the disc. The Manual does not even mention this manual release lever!
Also, it may be hidden or covered by a paper like cover.
This is a faulty condition caused by lack of error control in the firmware. Try this:
Unplug machine from wall for 5 min. Hold "open/close" button in and then plug machine into mains whilst continuing to hold the open/close button. Keep holding open/close button for about a minute, as these machines are notoriouly slow to "boot". It that doesn't work, repeat the procedure, but hold down the power button instead of the open/close button in an attempt to reset the memory settings of the unit. Good luck.
