I picked one up from the garbage dump and it had the same problem. When I opened it up I found out that it did not have A/C voltage from the transformers secondary but it had voltage on the primary. Looking at the primary side of the transformer it has 3 pins, first pin has a white wire, second pin (center) has the transformer windings and the third pin has a orange wire. I may have the colors backwards but it does'nt matter. Between the center pin and the pin on the right there is a 2Amp fuse down inside the plastic part of the transformer.REMEBER TO UNPLUG FROM MAINS FIRST !!! Unplug the transformers primary side connector from the power board and use a meter set to OHM's or diode and check continuity between the center pin and the right pin. If there is no continuity then the fuse is blown. Unsolder the wire on the right pin and solder it to the center pin. You have just bypassed the fuse. It should work now.REMEBER TO UNPLUG FROM MAINS FIRST !!! Now it would be nice if I had a remote.

the disc or mechanism may be jammed and the unit knows this, someone (most shops do this) needs to open the unit and safely cycle the disc out of the unit---many times with this done the unit will suddenly work again.
If not and it is not a expensive unit you have the disc back and time to go shopping as most of these are throw away units.
You need to release the timer to access the VCR. Press the Timer Set button on the remote or the Stop/Eject button on the recorder. Then press the VCR button.
Please note: the scheduled recording will not run as programmed unless you press the Timer Set on the remote again. (The timer locks the VCR until the scheduled ON time.) The DVD player is controlled separately and becomes the default unit.
I fixed this problem in my DVP642 by replacing a capacitor on the main
power board where the power chord hooks in. Take the top cover off
(after unplugging player). You'll be able to locate the bad capacitor
on the circuit board located on the very right. Look for location
marked c316 on the circuit board. A bad capacitor will be bulged up on
top. The capacitor you're looking for will be a black barrel shape with
an aluminum top, this aluminum top will be bulged up or leaking on the
circuit board. Replace this capacitor by desoldering the two leads into
the board and replacing with an identical part you can pick up at Radio
Shack for a couple dollars. My repair for this identical problem was a
success. The blinking light is the tip off for this particular problem
on these Phillips models.
Instead of a pinhole, there is a slot on the bottom of the DVD player that will force the disc out. There's a plastic lever visible on one side of the slot. I used a butter knife to push into the slot.
Im thinking that maybe you a have a timer recording set. The whole unit wont function at all if you turn it on via power button (remote or unit). There should be a button at the top of the remote called 'timer set' pressing this will disable that mode and allow complete use of everything. but make sure u press timer set again when powering down, otherwise simply turning off the machine will leave the timer recording disabled.
