Question about Televison & Video
Hi david93555. First, you need to make sure that the remote control is operating and not throwing you a curve, try powering the dvd player from the power key on the device itself.
Secondly, verify if you are geting any type of indication that the unit has a functional power supply(usually the manufacturer uses an led lamp or pilot lamp that will light up as soon as the unit is plugged into an AC outlet.
If you do not have a functional power supply you'll have to take the cover off and take a quick but close look at the power supply area( you can locate it if you follow the AC cord to where it pluggs or solders into the board, another way is to look for the main fuse). Look for a good fuse (make sure is clear and not browned out) not blown or even check for continuity if you know how to use an ohmeter, Also look for blown or inflated electrolytic caoacitors, this is very common on the power supplies used on these dvd players.
note: always unplugg all electrical cords from the AC outlet before you do any inspection of electrical circuitry.

from my experience, I think your player is having a power problem. It must have received excess voltage/irregular power supply which has damaged an IC or capacitor on the power board of the player.
Sometimes this excess power supply might damage the player's main board. This is why it is advice able that you use step down for your player, because DVD player don't need excess power as something might be damaged.
To solve this problem, you will be needing a meter. Open the player, use the meter to read the components on the power board as it will help you discover the component that got damaged and you can then replace the bad component.
But if you do not have the knowledge of fixing this problem, you might be needing the help of a service technician.
