My apartment had a leak (right overhead of my dvd player & Gamecube). I unplugged them, let them dry for two days (because there was about a cup of water in each). The Gamecube plays fine, but the DVD/Video player will not work properly. It has sound if I try to play a DVD or tape, but the picture is mostly black with small white images that roll across the screen. Is the DVD player a lost cause?
Sorry that i couldn't give you any more help but maybe yo can try to ask some local dealers serviceshop if they have anything similar to a fair price.....preferably you talk to a "selling" technician instead of an salesperson and possibly they may consider to "trade in" your defect dvd...good luck...Ron

Well it might just be a little glitch with the dvd player to causse this problem so unplud the DVD
player from the wall outlit and let it stay unplugged for about 30 minutes to see if it fixed the problem and there is a small button on the rear of the dvd player that allows the disc's to pop out but you need a small flat head screwdriver to do that. Lastly if zero luck it will need to be repaired then. DOn't take it apart it could make thuings worse.

I'm going to assume you are trying to be able to play both gamecube and the dvd player on one tv. Not at once, but I'm guessing you think you can't hook both to the TV. If you no matter what big tv it is, you can connect it to your tv.
If your trying to connect the gamecube to the dvd player then you need to have inputs and outputs on the dvd player itself. hook the video and audio of the gamecube to the input of the dvd player and the ouput of the dvd player to the input on the tv
are the disks copys? are they badly scratched? if not you could try unplugging the player. take it apart and locate the lasor lens usually under a plastic plate held by two small screws? get a cotton bud and dip one end into isopropyl alchohol or meths and clean the lasor lens rubbing lightly in a circular motion then with the dry end of the bud wipe lightly the lens dry, put the set together and try a disk, if the above does not work a new lasor is needed,
I had an after market dvd overhead player installed by a friend. He first lowered the overhead liner. Then he hooked into the power connections from the overhead lights. He just spliced the wires straight into those lights. Then he drilled holes for the screws into the roof frame (not the roof itself), Then he cut a hole in the headliner and ran the powerlines to the actual dvd player. We hooked up the brackets and installed the dvd player. It took about 3 hours.
