Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players

Bush DVD 2038 DVD player

This dvd player was playing fine until it was last used,it has not been used much (2 years old). It has recently stopped responding to the re-mote (new batteries) and manual buttons. There is power to the machine(red light on the dash),i have removed a disc from the inside of the player and reasembled but no change. Any advice much appreciated. I have a Bush DVD2080divx that's only a year old. It was working fine until recently. The power is on (the display reads -OFF-) but the player doesn't respond to the remote or the buttons on the actual player. I've changed the batteries, tried turning off the power, I've checked all the cales are properly attached but nothing works. I'm not very tekkie so I haven't even try to take anything apart. Any help, please? Desperate.

    I've also got the Bush DVD02080DIVX and it was working fine until this morning when it was displaying OFF in the display screen and totally unresponsive. I have unplugged it for the mo, and i'll leave it unplugged overnight before repowering it
    A friend of mine had the same make and the same problem. Now reading this I can't help but think that it's been programmed to shutdown after a certain time...

I contacted Bush custimer care and this is the reply I got:
We apologize for the inconvenience caused to you.

We would request you to kindly reset the remote control by following the steps mentioned below:

1. Remove the batteries and reinsert the batteries after 1 minute.
2. Press and hold the top, right and the bottom navigation button on the
remote control along with the number 1 button (as in 123) for 10sec.

It didn't work for me, but I have posted it on here, just in case it works from someone else

The older laser player/burners may have used a different angle for the read/write service. It is like a phonograph needle sitting in a groove that tracks the data as it pans the surface.
Try to COPY the CD/DVD to the desktop if you can. If you know the OLD player worked, use that to COPY the Data to your Current computer desktop and then copy that back to new CD using the new hardware.

I imagine you have checked the disk for scratches top and bottom, if so you can purchase a cd/dvd lens cleaner cdrom as the laser may need realigning and cleaning.
