This is probably a fault on the power supply sometimes caused by a diode. If you are capable investigate but if not PLEASE dont try anything to put your life in danger as the voltages present in the stereo can easily kill or injure. Good luck.

Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

My LG dvd player, says loading and eventually disc error, even when there's no disc inside, I dismantled the motor and dvd flexi beld

Oh dear sounds in mess sadly more so with you taking it apart as they are sensitive to static electric which can damage it.
I will try though, I think its too late, first get the remote out of sight of your player (a damaged remote can fire duff signals which bother equipment).
Next check that its machine buttons push and "click" not stuck in/on this can annoy a machine make it react badly.
Now the next is very tricky and I assume you have put it back together!
With it turned off DVD's and CD players have a small hole on their fronts (unless its real old then can be underneath) which a small stiff wire or tool is pushed to get its tray open if a disc gets stuck. A 1mm drill bit may work or similar diameter prod/probe, the idea is to enable you to open and gently pull out its drawer.
With this done and it all its wires back from any dismantle you may have done, power it on.
1) the tray should go back in set its load switches and make the optics take up"start position" moving near to turntable plus lens can be seen moving with red glow (DO NOT LOOK AT LIGHT ABOVE IT only at SIDE).
2) the tray does not or badly moves but a whirring noise is heard, mostly a belt drive tray type and it has stretched needs a change, see also if lens lights and moves as above, IF NOT ditch it.
3)It does not move with no noise maybe with erratic displays no laser or lens action then very bad fault, in short not worth repair, ditch it.
More than this it will require expert help which an average person is not equipped to handle not only in adjustments but many I find need re-lubrication because of grit, debris or grease gone stiff.

Hope it helps.........

I have five discs in there. The drawer won't open. I can hear whirring noise.

You can try unplugging the unit and waiting a few minutes and then replug and reboot the player. If it still does not work you might want to check the eject mechanism for operation. Maybe a blet slipped off a pulley?

The loading belt is broken, or the gears are jammed and locked down, either way a major dis-assembly will be required to attempt repair.

Is your VCR fixed?
From what you have written, I understand that you have not used the VCR for many months. And since you are hearing a whirring noise, the eject motor is working, but the belts are spoilt, and are slipping. Hence your problem. I suggest you open the top cover of the VCR and observe the eject mechanism. As suggested, you will - in all likelihood, observe that the belt driving the eject gears is slipping.

The 5 disc carousel CD player has a belt driven mechanism in it. And after about 3-4 years the belt looses its tension and cannot push the tray in or out. If you keep your ears on the top cover and turn on the system you will hear a whirring sound coming from the inside which will prove my point.
There are two belts in the machine. One for the eject mechanism and the other for disc change mechanism. One has to seek professional help to replace both because there is timing sequence also involved like the cam shaft of an engine.
