Power won't stay on, can't get dvd out

This unit has hardly been used and has only been used as a dvd player to play a couple of dvd movies. my friend wants to sell the whole system but it still has problems. i stuck a dvd movie in, and after 45 min, it just powered off. the display screen went black. the red power light is still on. if i click the power button on the remote or push the eject button on the unit, it flashes dvd in the display screen for a couple seconds then clicks off again. i unplugged it and let it alone overnight. I still can't get it to come on and stay on. I want my disk out and this thing fixed. any suggestions? btw, it's my netflix movie in there. i want it out cuz i can't get anymore movies til i send it back. LOL

One of the motors in the mechanism died making a near short circuit. When the DVD tries to energize the motor, a lot of current passes through the circuits making the PSU protection to shut down the power supply to avoid damage or fire.
To get the movie out, you'll have to disassemble the DVD player and remove the disk. After that the DVD will be unusable because of the failing motor. The replacement often is more expensive than buying a new Chinese DVD player.

when you play nothing but bootlegs in a dvd player, they tend to burn out the eye inside the player to where it will only read bootlegs. the original movies capabilities won't work anymore. hope this is a help to you my friend.

Hey,
Maybe the format of your recorded movie didnt support your player..check out your manual for the supported formats and check the format of your recorded movie.If any of the format in the manual matches your movie format then it will definitely play..

Movie does not play


Try playing Different DVDs, Second Make sure which Region Disk your playing is it Region 1 or Region 2, If your DVD player is Manufactured in USA it plays only Region 1, If its manufactured in UK it plays only Region 2, If still you face same problem Use Lens Cleaner, If still you face same problem do Reset.
To Reset Dvd player, Remove DVD from Dvd Player, Unplug Power chord from Walloulet for 15minutes so player goes to Defult Factor Settings, Then plug back again Power chord. Turn on Dvd player insert DVD, It should Play or else Claim Warranty.

Turns


When you say turns off do you meen power switches off or just stops playing.A good test is to play a cd,if this plays ok the problem is more than likely laser related and with the cost of replacing the laser being so expensive,it can be cheaper to replace player itself.Have you tried cleaning the lens assy with cleaning disc??
